Rashmika Mandanna our young and vibrant face of South India, shares how she uses different techniques during this season to keep a check on her respiratory health and also on the practice of regular steam inhalation with Vicks Vaporub at the first signs of cough and cold to get relief from its symptoms
Chennai, December 15, 2021: December skies are always beautiful; the hues make for a scenic environmental change that our eyes fall in love with instantly. Despite all the good things, this is also the month where many cough and cold symptoms are common due to the weather transition. Winter is here and this means our body needs extra care, making it important to manage our respiratory health and wellness the right way.
Fitness enthusiast and happy-go-lucky Rashmika Mandanna has always managed to leave her fans inspired with her health regime. She believes in the benefits of traditional ingredients and practices yoga. Always on-the-go and working, young Rashmika has often shared her parents’ inhibitions and fears when it comes to her health. Therefore, she ensures she carries her mother’s traditional home remedies everywhere she goes. Rashmika has always been someone who abides to a disciplined mantra that helps keep her body healthy and well-nourished; this involves taking extra care of respiratory health during the monsoons as well at the first signs of cough & cold symptoms
Sharing more on how she manages the flu season, Rashmika shares, “While I’ve always enjoyed long hours of shooting and giving my best at work, enjoying the beautiful December sunsets calm me amidst all the chaos. Even though I love every aspect of my busy schedule, it’s also a time where I was easily prone to cold or cough. Every time I was down with cough and cold symptoms, my mother always ensured that I practiced steam inhalation with Vicks VapoRub to get relief.
I still fondly remember her worrying about my health every time I went on school trips as a child, and she would always tell me how Vicks VapoRub with its natural ingredients like camphor, eucalyptus and menthol help in getting relief from cold and cough symptoms. This is one thing I carry with me even today; my mother also is at peace knowing the tiny blue bottle of Vicks VapoRub travels with me. Honestly, while I have a health regime that consists of Yoga, Pilates and a clean diet, steam inhalation with Vicks VapoRub tops the list during a busy shoot schedule and constantly changing weather. It has been our family’s partner through every season. We add a teaspoon of Vicks to a bowl of hot (not boiling) water, cover the head with a towel, inhale the vapors and then have a good rest. The medicated vapors of camphor, eucalyptus, and menthol help in getting fast relief from blocked nose and cough. Being a go-getter, I don’t like anything holding me back from my dreams and this practice has ensured that I stay on top of my health as much as possible.”
Steam inhalation with Vicks VapoRub is safe to use for adults and kids aged six years and above. However, it is important to consult your doctor if symptoms persist. Disclaimer: Always read the label. If symptoms persist, visit the doctor. For pain related symptoms, apply on affected areas.
