With the Coronavirus ensuring everybody is locked up at home, salons, parlours, spas and everything else, too remain shut. Many will take to waxing off their upper lip and eyebrows at home.
So before you get to it, here are some things you need to know before waxing the facial hair from your face:
1. Do a patch test While waxing at home with ready-made wax strips is safe, it is best to do a patch test to ensure there are no reactions. Pick out a small patch - either a part of your upper lip or sideburns and test out the strip. If there is no reaction for 24 hours, go ahead and wax that hair off!
2. Keep Aloe Gel handyOne of the simplest remedies to deal with skin irritation if the waxing does go wrong despite testing it out, is to let it recuperate with the help of Aloe gel. If your skin is irritated, has red spots or just feels itchy, apply some Aloe Vera gel on it. It is sure to ease out the inflammation and irritation and cool the area.
3. Use the same strip twiceOnce you have completed waxing one section of your face, discard the strip and use a new one. This is purely because the more number of times you use a strip, the lesser hair it pulls out. Also, the more number of times you use a strip to pull out stubborn hair, the more likely your skin is to tear.
4. Dealing with breakouts If you have breakouts on your skin, it is better to consider other forms of hair removal. This is simply because the wax could break open the acne which could in turn cause a massive reaction.

Just saw Doctor’s round table on India Today Channel having 4 highly reputed Doctors panel.
It was very informative & I would like to pen down few important points made by these qualified Doctors :
1) Plasma therapy is not at all recommended in the 2nd wave by WHO or any other Organisations around the World. It is waste of time & money.
2) If needed, CT scan of lungs to be done between 5th to 7th day, otherwise report may be misguiding.
3) No need of any Medication in the 1st week of infection, except Paracetamol (if fever persists) along with Multivitamins & Zinc. In case of Fever Paracetamol should not be taken SOS but regularly in 6 hourly interval.
4) If symptoms continue, Condition worsens in 2nd week between 7th & 10th day, so pl. keep close monitoring on Oxygen level, Coughing frequency, Pulse & Temperature.
5) If Condition worsens in 2nd week, without wasting time start treatment with Steroids in consultation with Doctor. Steroid treatment is the most effective way of treating Lungs infection.
6) Oxygen concentrator of 5L is not suitable, as they probably cannot bring back Oxygen saturation above 94 continuously.
7) Proning is now officially approved method for improving Oxygen level.
8) Positive persons after becoming negative are safe from infection for next 90-180 days.
9) Positive persons should take their 1st or 2nd Jab after 90 days of becoming negative, as they have sufficient antibody for next 90 days at least.
10) Condition of young people in the age group of 30-45 yrs. worsens suddenly as they have strong capacity to hold back till a point and thereafter collapses suddenly. Close monitoring is essential and each passing day is crucial.
** Good points to be taken care by everyone **
