With the aim of educating people about the importance of a healthy lifestyle, SMRC’s VM Salgaocar Hospital in collaboration with Innerwheel Club of Vasco-Da-Gama, organised a talk on 'The Importance of maintaining healthy skin and hair' at Innerwheel Club, Vasco.
The talk was delivered by SMRC’s expert dermatologist & cosmetologist, Dr Preeti Savardekar.
The purpose of the talk was to create awareness on how in today's era, people are unaware of the significance of maintaining healthy skin and hair.
"The primary goal of this discussion was to help people understand the significance of having good skin and hair health. People are constantly busy with their work and they neglect their own health. And so, we planned to educate people about skin and hair health and the importance of it for increased productivity, confidence and overall well-being," said Savardekar.
She further said that adults must take care of their skin and hair to prevent future complications.
During the talk, Savardekar discussed how there was increasing stress and a sedentary lifestyle, and so, healthy living is of utmost importance. She also provided numerous tips and prevention measures for maintaining the health of skin and hair.
Savardekar emphasized how caring for one’s skin and hair health can lead to overall physical and spiritual well-being.
The talk highlighted how people, today, are dealing with multiple skin and hair conditions such as leprosy, vitiligo, psoriasis, eczemas, acne, hair loss, etc.
She also mentioned how these issues can lead to psychological stress and further have adverse effects if inappropriate treatment is offered due to a lack of knowledge.
