The COVID – 19 outbreak is in full swing! Many countries have either closed their borders or imposed quarantine restrictions on travellers from affected countries.

 

Hence, can one still travel during this period?

The safest would be to defer all non-essential travel to affected countries during this period.

 

However, if one absolutely has to travel, there are a few precautions one can take to minimize the risk of contracting COVID – 19.

 

 

Most Importantly: Practice Hand Hygiene

 

Hand hygiene would be the most important step to reduce the risk of transmission.

 

Frequent hand washing and use of hand sanitizers eliminates contagious viruses from our hands. These viruses enter our bodies and infect us when we touch our eyes, mouth or nose with our contaminated hands. The COVID -19 virus is able to survive on surfaces for a period of time, hence we will never know if we have touched a contaminated surface.

 

Proper Ways to Wash Your Hands

 

 

Is Mask Useful?

 

As of now, COVID-19 is found to be spread mainly by respiratory droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

 

 

Normal Routine Use is Unlikely to be Helpful; 
Unless You’re Travelling to a High-Risk Area

These droplets do not float in the air and sink to the ground and/or surface soon after exiting an infected person’s respiratory tract. Hence, normal routine use is unlikely to be helpful as the chance of a droplet being sprayed directly onto your eyes, nose or mouth is exceedingly low.

 

It is a different story if you are travelling to a high-risk area. In that situation, a mask is definitely useful.

 

 

 

Is It Safe to Travel on Airplanes?

 

Fortunately, modern airplanes utilize high-efficiency filters that remove 99.97% of viruses and other particles in re-circulated air.

 

Hence, risk of contracting COVID-19 while on an airplane comes not from the supplied air, but from other people. If one follows a strict hand hygiene routine, the risk is minimal.

 

 

All in all, travelling during this period does carry a risk of contracting COVID – 19.

 

However, if one follows a comprehensive hand hygiene regime and uses a mask judiciously, the risk can be minimized.

There are at least five types of skin: normal, dry, oily, combination, and sensitive.

Unfortunately, as much as everyone wants to have smooth, clear skin that isn’t too demanding, many fall into the dry or oily skin category—sometimes a combination of both.

 

What Causes Dry & Oily Skin

Dry skin can be attributed to a wide range of factors. For some, it is hereditary but for others, it can be a result of poor lifestyle habits or an indication of an underlying condition such as dermatitis or eczema.

On the other hand, oily skin can be the result of both genetic factors and hormonal changes in which one is predisposed to producing a higher amount of sebum—the natural oil that keeps the skin soft and hydrated.

Meanwhile, the skin can also be both dry and oily, in which case it will cause an over-production of oil to compensate for the dryness of the skin. Someone with combination skin typically has a mix of oily and dry areas on different parts of the face, with the t-zone being particularly oily.

As unpleasant as it may be, having dry or oily skin is treatable and manageable; and the first step would be to consult with a professional from a women’s health clinic in Singapore to understand which skin type you fall under.

 

In the article that follows, we are focusing on dry skin and the ways you can manage and ease this skin condition.

 

 

Moisturise. The first thing you should do when you have dry skin is to stay moisturised. You can benefit from moisturising lotions and creams that are better absorbed into the epidermis (outer layer of the skin) thus, trapping natural and existing moisture in your skin to prevent further drying. We also suggest using lip balms that contain vitamins such as A, C, E, and D to keep your lips from chapping.

 

 

Wear Breathable Clothes. When your skin is dry, it is often raw and more sensitive than usual and there are kinds of fabrics that could bring more damage to it—nylon, spandex, and polyester to name a few. The key for dry skin is to wear natural, breathable fabrics such as cotton, linen and silk for protection and to promote healing. These fabrics allow air to flow through them easily, keeping you cool and helping prevent irritation too.

 

 

Avoid Using Harsh Products. Detergents, facial washes, bath soaps, shampoos, etc. As much as possible, use products that are friendly to your skin. Avoid those that contain benzoyl peroxide, alcohol, fragrances, sulfur, and alpha-hydroxy acid, which are ingredients that prevent the natural oil production of your skin. Instead, use mild, moisturising soaps such as baby soaps as they typically don’t contain too many harsh chemicals. Castile soap is a great option too.

 

 

Reduce Bath Time. Avoid taking long, hot showers—spending too much time on the shower can strip the oil off your skin, drying it out further. By limiting yourself to shorter showers saves more than your skin – You will be saving water too. This is just one of the many lifestyle changes you can make to give your dry skin the attention it needs.

 

 

 

Consult Your Doctor. As earlier said, dry skin can sometimes be an indication of an underlying condition. If you’re noticing severe redness, flaking, or irritation, it’s essential that you talk to your doctor to rule out any skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema, and/or athlete’s foot. If symptoms persist, we strongly advise you to visit the nearest men & women’s health clinic.

 

A doctor can examine and help you when all the aforementioned tips fail to bring your skin comfort.

Common Illnesses & Home Remedies during CNY

 

 

Chinese New Year is a time for gatherings and festival feasting.

 

Unfortunately, gatherings and feasting are also risk factors for getting common ailments like the common cold, flatulence, indigestion, diarrhea, vomiting and gastric pains.

 

Many people in a confined space, the very definition of a gathering, make it easy for the cold bug to spread from one person to the next.

 

The sheer amount we consume during festival feastings, often much more than what we eat normally makes indigestion and flatulence common place. Dietary indiscretion may also trigger gastritis in people who are prone.

 

 

 

The above mentioned conditions would usually be treated after a trip to the Doctor’s office, but many are closed during Chinese New Year! There are a few 24 hour clinics that would be open but the charges would be significantly higher. So what can one do to avoid those ailments and if afflicted, what can one do for self-treatment?

 

 

Self Treatment at Home for Flu, Stomach Discomfort, and Standby Medications at Home

 

 

  1. Take Vitamin C for Flu

Firstly, ensuring adequate rest and consuming Vitamin C may improve one’s defense against the cold bug.

 

 

  1. Hot Tea or Panadol Flu for Stomach Discomfort

 

Secondly, eating sensibly and listening to your stomach, i. e stopping once you feel any discomfort may prevent flatulence, indigestion and gastritis.

Once inflicted, home remedies such as hot tea, over the counter Panadol Flu and Antacids can help.

 

 

 

  1. Standby Medications

 

Another feasible option is to get standby medications from your local General Practitioner before CNY.

Flu, cough, nausea, diarrhea, indigestion, flatulence and gastritis medications can safely be given and taken when needed. Don’t let illness tarnish your Chinese New Year, start your preparations now!
