🧴Moisturisers play an important role in maintaining skin health and hydration.
😮They are the second basic step in daily skin care routine.
☺️They are commonly prescribed by dermatologists in their day to day practice.
👍🏻They form the major step in controlling a few skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis etc.
😃Nowadays, active ingredients like collagen, keratin, ceramides, peptides and sunscreen agents are also added to moisturisers to give photo protective and anti aging properties.

Moisturisers are of three types
1️⃣Emollients
2️⃣Humectants
3️⃣Occlusives

😮Face moisturisers are different from body moisturisers
🆗Lotions are preferred for the body and creams/gels are preferred for face mostly.
Ideally, one should apply moisturiser
✅2-3 times in a day
✅Apply adequate amount to cover the concerned area
✅Apply on a slightly wet surface

🧴So don’t forget to moisturise daily and repeatedly in all seasons

🙏🏻This Dussehra let’s take a stand to fight against the most frightening menace - Steroid abuse/misuse

💊Steroids are most commonly and widely misused medications.
🙄There is major misconception that oral or topical steroids are used for every skin condition like acne, pigmentation, skin infections etc.
🧴Many “unlabelled fairness creams” have steroids in them which will lead to irreversible side effects

🤔Why there is increase in Steroid abuse/ misuse ?
- Unregulated and unsupervised usage by public
- No proper awareness
- Prescribed by non doctors
- Dispensed by chemists as OTC products
- Development of dependency leading to topical steroid addiction.
- Suggested by friends, pharmacists or near ones as “fairness cream” or “all in one” creams. ( This is quiet common)

😱Continuous usage of topical steroids can lead to TOPICAL STEROID DAMAGED FACE with severe complications like
- acne
- pigmentation
- stretch marks
- redness & telangiectasia ( dilated tiny blood vessels on face)
- dryness with itching & burning sensation.
- thinning of skin
- unwanted hair growth
- skin cancers etc
These complications sometimes can be irreversible too.

🙅🏻‍♀️So Do not use Steroids without proper counselling and dermatologist’s approval.

🚫If you are using any steroids without doctors prescription, STOP IMMEDIATELY AND SEEK HELP.

🙅🏻‍♀️Say No to Steroid abuse/misuse
🙅🏻‍♀️Say No to Topical Steroid Addiction
🙅🏻‍♀️Say No to fairness creams or beauty creams without proper labelling

💄Cosmetics : Cosmetics are beauty products that cover up or enhance the appearance and attractiveness of a person. For example make up products like foundation, concealer, nail paints, hair dyes etc. they temporarily adorn and beautify the skin. They don't usually have any active ingredient that cures or modifies one’s skin or hair condition.

🧴Cosmeceuticals : They form a bridge between cosmetics and pharmaceutical drugs. They are usually available as OTC products and don't require a doctor's prescription for usage.
Usually an active ingredient is added to the product to enhance the functionality and beauty of skin. Alpha hydroxy acids, vitamin c, vitamin e , supplements, topical retinoids are few examples of cosmeceuticals.

💊Prescription drugs/ pharmaceutical drugs : Pharmaceutical drugs can modify, change and cure diseases. They are usually backed with evidence based research and undergo many regulations and scrutiny. A doctor's prescription is mandatory for usage of these drugs as there is a certain time period, doses to use. Complete counselling and understanding of the drug is important for the drug to work efficiently and to avoid dangerous side effects.

✅So it is important to discuss with your dermatologist and choose products that best suit your skin and hair to avoid unforeseen complications.

OTC products have become part and parcel of health and personal care for everyone today. From cough, cold to skin care, they are used left right and centre by patients daily. They are one of the soaring markets and have clearly taken over the personal care industry globally. All of us must at least have few or too many OTC Products lying in our health & beauty basket.
The term Over-The-Counter (OTC) refers to a medication that can be purchased and used safely without a medical prescription or professional help. They can range from topical products like shampoos, conditioners, face washes, sunscreens, moisturisers etc to few oral medications like supplements, anti histamines, pain killers etc.

Why do Patients choose OTC products ?
Many patients even prefer OTC products to medicated or prescription drugs because
Easily available, accessible and quick fix.
Patients don't have time or can't make time for doctor's appointments because of busy life.
Immense awareness and advertisements about health and beauty care products over social media platforms.
Marketed as safe or natural or chemical free.
Easy on money.
Used as an alternative to medicated drugs.

Though OTC products can be like a bridge between patients' problems and their need for instant solutions, one has to be aware of what they are applying or ingesting and if it is really needed for them or not, as to avoid unforeseen reactions or complications which can appear either immediately or after few days and sometimes these reactions can be life threatening too (especially with oral medications).

In many countries, there are regulatory bodies that keep a check on OTC products so that they are safe and effective to use without doctors consultation. But in India, there are few lacuna regarding the definition and regulation of OTC products. So be careful and cautious next time you buy OTC products online or from a chemist..!!
