  1. The Indian cricket team had a great start to their practice match against the Country Select XI as they went on to score 306 runs on Day 1 of three, behind KL Rahul’s 101 and Ravindra Jadeja’s 75-run knocks at Chester-le-Street in Durham. View this post on Instagram However, a rather unpleasant surprise for the fans of the Men in Blue was to learn that skipper Virat Kohli and deputy in command, Ajinkya Rahane were to miss out on the action with minor niggles in their fitness. “Captain Virat Kohli felt some stiffness in his back on late Monday evening and he has been advised rest from the three-day first-class warm-up game by the BCCI Medical Team," BCCI said in a statement. View this post on Instagram “Vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane has mild swelling around his left upper hamstring. This has been addressed by an injection. He is not available for the three-day first-class warm-up game. The BCCI Medical Team is monitoring him, and he is expected to fully recover well in time for the first Test against England starting from 4th August at Nottingham." With the captain and the vice-captain not being able to make it to the field, the duty was given to team veteran Rohit Sharma (9), who admittedly didn’t get the start that he had hoped for and became the first wicket to fall for the World Test Championship runners-ups. View this post on Instagram The team also suffered another scare after Avesh Khan (playing for the opposing side) ended up hurting his finger while bowling to his compatriot, Hanuma Vihari in the 35th over of the innings. Khan had bowled 9.5 overs for 41 runs without picking up a wicket when he walked off. As the Indian cricket board addressed, the injuries and fitness issues that Kohli and Rahane are feeling are “mild” in nature and are confident that they will be ready to play at a high level by the time the first Test against Joe Root’s England side takes place on August 4, 2021. “Team India are wearing black armbands to mourn the sad demise of former India cricketer Yashpal Sharmaji, who sadly passed away on 13th July after a cardiac arrest. Head Coach Ravi Shastri was his teammate in the 1983 World Cup winning squad." View the full article

  4. The transition from just talking to someone new every day to start dating them to finally get into a proper relationship is oftentimes, rather blurred. One day you’re flirting with them at 3 in the morning, the next you’re out catching up over a few drinks and before you know it, you’re making it Instagram official. © iStock But before you do any of that and decide to dive headfirst into a relationship, it is important to keep all your cards on the table. And by that I mean, come clean about a few things before you get further involved. You know things like your favourite toppings on a pizza, because if it includes pineapple, it’s better to get dumped today than tomorrow.. And to save yourself and the other person from just the kind of deceiving, it is important to reveal these 5 things about yourself before you get into a relationship with them whether or not they have come up before: 1. Your Dating History © Red Chillies Entertainment By this, I don’t mean you have to necessarily list down the name of every person you've ever dated, but it is good to share who you’ve been involved with, and out of those previous relationships, how many crashed and burned and how many you’re still in touch with. 2. Your Future Plans © Dharma Productions This is in case you get into a relationship, everything goes great and then suddenly 4 months later you realise you have to head to a foreign country to pursue your higher studies. A detail that you left out while dating and bam, you're single. To avoid any clash in the course of your relationship that may have an impact on the entire existence of it, it is advised to talk openly about where you are headed in life and see if the relationship will be able to strive alongside those future plans. 3. Your Political Views © Dharma Productions Sharing whether or not you’re a Modi supporter is good, but sharing where you stand on other topics of discussion in general, from feminism to economy to human rights to what football team you support, is also crucial to discuss. These are the kind of views that shape you and your mindset as a whole, and it’s better to find out now if you’re not on the same page than regret it later. 4. Your Expectations © Illuminati Films A lot of couples often jump the gun and find themselves in a relationship before actually having a talk about what it means and where it is going. It is of prime importance to discuss with your partner where you think you are headed with this relationship, whether it is just a go with the flow kind of a scene, a committed partnership or even something as transitory as a fling. Talk about it! 5. Your Addictions © Rajkumar Hirani Films Be it smoking, drinking, bingeing on the same 10 seasons of F.R.I.E.N.D.S every single day or any other addiction that you fell prey to, disclose it well before entering the new relationship to avoid any problems in the future. After all, it is always better to have your partner prepared about what to expect, rather than have them shocked. 6. Your Mental Health Issues © Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment The purpose of sharing your mental health issues, if any, with the person you’re in love with and want to get into a relationship with, is to let them know that you’re going through something so you don’t have to be alone in it. Mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and the likes of it, have their own way of seeping into your personal relationships and when that happens, having your partner in your corner, ready and willing to support you, will be of great help.

  6. Sometimes, it seems fascinating to realize how we, a human civilization, have evolved from the days of early men to now exploring space in rockets or devising humanoid robots. © iStock © iStock Now, despite the evolution and creation of newer technology every day, one thing that continues to intrigue us is the possibility of intelligent life elsewhere, or to keep it short, the presence of aliens. © iStock The unexplainable sightings of strange UFOs across the world with the recent one being spotted in the leaked US Navy video have gone on to suggest that there is a high chance that the third kind really does exist and might have even made contact with Earth. However, while we look at the possibility of there being an official confirmation on the presence of aliens, an American physicist has warned that making contact with them could be the end of our existence. © iStock Mark Buchanan, formerly an editor of the science journal, Nature and magazine, New Scientist, insists that we abort all plans of making contact with different life forms as it could be 'extremely dangerous'. While suggesting that he was grateful that there had been no evidence of contact with the aliens yet, Buchanan wrote a Washington Post piece titled, "Contacting aliens could end all life on earth. Let’s stop trying." "The search for aliens has reached a stage of technological sophistication and associated risk that it needs strict regulation at national and international levels. Without oversight, even one person - with access to powerful transmitting technology - could take actions affecting the future of the entire planet. "That's because any aliens we ultimately encounter will likely be far more technologically advanced than we are, for a simple reason: Most stars in our galaxy are much older than the sun. "If civilizations arise fairly frequently on some planets, then there ought to be many civilizations in our galaxy millions of years more advanced than our own. Many of these would likely have taken significant steps to begin exploring and possibly colonizing the galaxy," the article read. © Netflix While there has been a stack of sci-fi movies showing human-alien contact, Buchanan suggests that it hasn't happened in real life as the alien civilization may consider it risky to send out any signals due to the history of humans on Earth. "More alarming is the possibility that alien civilizations are remaining out of contact because they know something: that sending out signals is catastrophically risky. Our history on Earth has given us many examples of what can happen when civilizations with unequal technology meet - generally, the technologically more advanced has destroyed or enslaved the other. © iStock "A cosmic version of this reality might have convinced many alien civilizations to remain silent. Exposing yourself is an invitation to be preyed upon and devoured," said Buchanan. The physicist's final call to the world is that if humanity really wants to see the consequences of potential contact, more people should be involved in the decision-making process. "For obvious reasons, much of the thinking about these issues has to be rather speculative. The best way forward, perhaps, is to broaden the discussion. If all of humanity is exposed to the possible consequences of trying to contact alien civilizations, then more people should be involved in making decisions about what is wise and what isn't. It shouldn't be left to a handful of radio astronomers," concluded Buchanan. View the full article

  8. While we love the clear and bright blue skies, the summer season does bring its own set of cons too. From incessant sweating to the body odour that follows, summer is particularly harsh on the skin. Most of the skin problems are linked with excess oil and sweat which end up blocking your pores and harbour bacteria. However, you need not worry anymore about any such problems troubling your skin. Here are five habits that you need to avoid to kick all that sweat to the curb. 1. Not Using An Exfoliating Body WashThe secret to a fresh shower is the right body wash. Since we all sweat a lot more during summers, make sure to use exfoliate at least twice a week. This will help keep those pores clean and your skin fresh. Be it body acne or body odour, exfoliating helps with both. __ECOMPRODUCT__1707__ 2. Wearing Your Workout Clothes Throughout Whether you’re going to the gym or working out at home, always change your clothes right after and take a shower as soon as possible. Wearing the same sweaty gym clothes longer than necessary will increase sweating and body odour. Clean your gym clothes separately, clean and dry. __ECOMPRODUCT__1708__ 3. Using Chemical Deodorants/AntiperspirantsUsing deodorants and antiperspirants way too often can block pores and increase sweating. Most of these products are packed with chemicals that are harmful for your skin. You can always use natural deodorants that solve the same purpose without harming your skin. __ECOMPRODUCT__1420__ 4. Working Out Outside Outdoors are great for working out but not during the peak of summers. The heat and humidity will make you sweat more. Instead, work out indoors in a well ventilated or an air conditioned room. If your workout is effective enough, you’ll definitely burn calories and sweat just not excessively. __ECOMPRODUCT__1532__ 5. Wearing The Wrong Fabrics Lastly, wearing synthetic and heavy fabrics that don’t allow much air through them will cause more sweating. Sweating is your body’s way of regulating its temperature and if you don’t wear natural and breezy fabrics like cotton and linen, you will always be hot and thus sweating. __ECOMPRODUCT__1709__ The Bottomline Sweating is a natural body response but it can be quite icky to deal with. Follow these tips and your body will stay cool and dry! How do you cool off during summers? Let us know in the comments! Explore More View the full article
  9. Most people are scared of injections and don't like being pricked by a needle. Understandable. Popping a pill or gulping down awful syrup seems to be a better alternative. There's a legit word for people who are phobic to needles, and it's called Trypanophobia. In the recent turn of events though, while the world faces the adversity of the Covid-19 virus, some people in rural areas are hesitant to get vaccinated, but not due to the fear of needles. © iStock © Twitter/News18 In a small village called Sisaurha in Barabanki, Uttar Pradesh, a group of people jumped into the nearby river called Saryu river to run away from the vaccine. The residents claim that people are dying even after getting vaccinated. A local farmer named Shishupal, said "People have died even after getting vaccinated. I know of those who have had to be hospitalised after the jab. Jab marna hi hai to vaccine kyon?" © iStock He further called the vaccine harmful and was seen spreading this false information to others as well. According to the Sub-Divisional Magistrate of Ramnagar Tehsil, Rajiv Kumar Shukla, at least 200 people from the village fled their homes due to fear. This event happened after the vaccination team was approaching the residents to get them vaccinated. Even the officials had a tough time convincing these people. They had to make these people understand the importance of getting the vaccination. They bust some myths around this subject, after which only 18 people were convinced. Some also called it a 'poisonous' injection. © iStock Another resident named Mohd Ahsan was also reluctant to get vaccinated. He said, "Is there a guarantee that we will not get infected after the vaccine? There are many in adjoining villages who rushed to take the vaccine and then got infected. Why is the government pushing for vaccination-they should give it to those who want it," Another rumour that was doing rounds in the village was that the vaccine could lead to 'impotence', making the men not take it all. © iStock All this comes at a time when India is already facing a shortage of Covid-19 vaccines. Nodal Officer Rahul Tripathi mentioned that they would continue to talk about the benefits of the vaccination and banish any misinformation around it. View the full article
  10. The Apple AirTags aren’t particularly cheap to purchase and don’t come with an accessory such as a keychain to prevent the tracker from getting lost. However, some people have found a way to get around buying an accessory by drilling a hole through the AirTag. People are drilling holes through the plastic outer ring of the AirTag so that one can pass a string or a keychain ring through the hole. © iFixit The first images of an AirTag with a hole surfaced in the MacRumors forums where a member called smythey had drilled a hole that doesn’t look too elegant. In fact, the reason why one should not drill a hole into the AirTag is probably because it might void the warranty in the process. © Macrumors Forums According to the forum user, the AirTag was working normally even after drilling the hole. From the image, we can see that the hole was drilled through the outer circular plastic cover. The hole completely avoids the circular steel frame and the tiny PCB inside it. It seems a bit unnecessary as one small mistake could result in a useless AirTag. While it is a clever way to avoid spending extra on the accessories, it could cost a lot more if users are not careful. Having said that, you can always get cheaper third-party accessories for your AirTag, sometimes considerably cheaper than Apple’s offering. © Macrumors Forums Having said that, if you are interested in actually drilling a hole in your AirTag, we recommend following the method posted by iFixit. The iFixit team was able to drill a hole without damaging the tracker and gives a good step-by-step guide on the website for you to follow. View the full article
  11. Weight loss is and always will be the most captivating thing for anyone who is trying to shed those extra kilos from their body as somehow almost a lot of people struggle with their weight and want to lose a bit more always to fit in those pair of clothes. For which they do the best of their will -- from strict dieting to working out regularly, but still, somehow they are not able to achieve the results they have imagined for themselves, which may be due to some mistake that they are doing unintentionally which is hampering their weight loss journey. Therefore these are 4 common mistakes that you should avoid in order to lose weight effectively. 1. Poor sleep pattern © istock Well, the reason why not many people focus on their sleep pattern is because no one in the weight loss industry has marketed good sleep as a fat burner, for obvious reasons. You can have possibly the best diet and workout protocols of the world specially designed for your body, remember nothing will turn to reality if your sleep quality is not good or you are not having a good sleep pattern. Since almost every magic of your transformation happens in the deep state of rest which is why when you are sleeping, your body repairs and rejuvenates itself from the workload it has been given on the day, your hormones production and regulation takes place when you are sleeping, your body detoxes itself when you are sleeping, almost every essential aspect of the human body happens when you are sleeping, which all plays a crucial role to your fat loss or muscle gain journey. Therefore never take your sleep for granted, provide good sleep to your body to recover itself, remember all your energy for the day depends upon the kind of sleep you had yesterday, also lack of sleep increase the hunger hormone called "ghrelin" which may give you these unwanted and weird cravings of food, which is never a good state to be in if you are wanting to lose weight. Hence aim to have a good sleep for about 7–8hrs every day, keeping the going to bed and waking up time almost the same. 2. Unwanted stress © istock With the kind of lifestyle we are living, almost each and every person has some kind of stress in their life, some people are good with stress management while some may not manage their stress effectively, since stress increases the hormone called "cortisol” in the body which is an important hormone for us, but prolonged and an excess amount of production of cortisol may disrupt the harmony of your body which may lead to weight gain, bloating and ultimately put you off from your fat loss protocol. In addition to the hormonal changes related to stress, stress can also drive you to engage in the following unhealthy behaviors like emotional eating, eating junk and processed food, skipping exercise, staying up too late, sleeping less all of which can further damage your fitness goals. Hence try to manage your stress level, try deep breathing, indulge in any activity that you like, play any sport or game, spend time with your loved ones which will surely help you boost your mood and manage your stress levels. 3. Excessive cardio © istock If you are someone who just has started their weight loss journey, one common misconception that many people have in their mind is that weight training gives you bulkier muscles and cardio burned your fat. Well, as a matter of fact, the truth is quite the opposite. Only cardio or excessive cardio can be as bad in obesity, since when we are performing cardiovascular exercises every day for a longer duration, our body burns the limited amount of calories as compared to weight training. Additionally, it deteriorates body muscles as well, which is never a good idea when we are talking about healthy weight loss, as muscles are essential for our body and are more metabolically active than fat. Which is why having a good amount of muscle is good for your body structure and makes your body more toned and enhances your body metabolism as well. But performing only cardio activity regularly will drift your way from a healthy weight loss, which is retaining maximum lean body mass with minimal fat mass. Also, don't get us wrong; we are not against cardiovascular exercise, they are great for your heart health and helps supply a good amount of oxygen to your body as well, but any good can turn into bad if done in excess, the same goes with cardio as well. Hence the best practice to include is to choose any kind of resistance training as a major and any other cardio activity as minor. 4. Starving or eating way too less © istock The first thing that any beginner who tries to lose weight by themselves will do is to eat way too little than what they used to eat or will end up starving themselves for the entire day since it is a very popular misconception around people that they have to eat very less if they want to lose weight, which is not true and not healthy for a human body as well. As a human being our bodies are meant to be nourished with nutrient-dense foods and care, but when you starve your self or eat way too little you tend to do the opposite of it, which is torturing and making your bodies left unnourished, which in return disturbs the hormone of your body -- from mood swings to hormonal imbalance to poor hair and skin quality. You tend to welcome all not so good stuff when you torture your body and leave it unnourished, which doesn't sound good for a healhty body. Since there is no point in losing weight by compromising your health over it, weight and fat are just an outcome of the unhealthy habits that you have regulated over a period of time, the best is to fix them over time. Therefore never starve yourself, eat whole and healthy foods according to the calorie requirements, eat a balanced and nutrient-dense diet. BottomlineRemember fitness or healthy habits is never a destination that you follow for some period of time and then leave, it is a lifestyle and good habits that you build and sustain. Hence focus more on building good habits which you can sustain for lifelong to keep you fit, healthy, and nourished! View the full article

  13. The Delhi Capitals may not have won the match against Sanju Samson’s Rajasthan Royals on Thursday, however, their skipper Rishabh Pant surely made some new fans with his wits and cunningness with the hopes of avoiding a massive fine as ‘Delay In Game’ penalty. Worried of being slapped with a Rs 12 lakh penalty based on the new, stricter rules established by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the wicket-keeper batsman quickly washed his hands of any possibilities of getting in trouble. View this post on Instagram During Delhi Capitals’ fielding, the on-field umpire halted the game to check whether the allowed number of players were in fact within the 30-yard circle or not. This is when Pant’s best friend on the field, the stump mic, picked up his voice as he walked up to the official and told them that this delay was not taking place because of him. "That's one minute being taken by you, umpire," Pant’s voice was heard by the fans who were watching the match live and the fans were quick to talk about it: "That one minute taken by you, umpire!" Rishabh Pant on the slight delay from umpire's end in Ashwin's over#RRvsDC — Rahul Pandey (@sportstoryguy) April 15, 2021Rishabh Pant is a proper character. I've never seen a cricketer telling umpire to hurry up. In other words, he's saying he won't accept responsibility for time lost due to umpire's time wasting actions.. #RRvDC — Tat'uRadebe (@hlubizer) April 15, 2021Rishabh Pant needs to be just that extra careful.

Walking to the middle of the Wankhede Stadium with his team struggling at 37 for 4, the southpaw went on to score 51 off 32 deliveries and and guided the total to a relatively respectable of 147. As far as the ‘delay in game’ fine is concerned, the BCCI had reached into the pocket of Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni for the same cause during the match against the Delhi Capitals in Mumbai on April 10. Captain MS Dhoni fined INR Rs 12 lakh for Chennai Super Kings' slow over-rate against Delhi Capitals. #CSKvDC | #IPL2021 pic.twitter.com/ZpcI8eHzsK — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) April 10, 2021 After losing their second match of the season, the Delhi Capitals now find themselves at the very middle of the IPL Points Table, at the number four spot with, just above the Rajasthan Royals and under Punjab Kings.

  15. There are certain rules set in every arena. The same is the case in the fashion world. There are some rules, which if followed in the right manner, can make you look sartorially well-versed at all hours. So here are some 7 of them that you should never ever bend but follow. 1. When Wearing Polo T-shirts © iStock Polo T-shirts no doubt make one look fashionable but there's a way to wear them. Ensure the sleeve is not loose and doesn't look too long. It should end between three-quarters of your bicep and the middle. 2. The Width Of A Bow-Tie © iStock There's a rule to follow when it comes to bow-ties as well. The size of the bow-tie matters. When wearing a bow-tie, check the width as it should match with the outer corners of your eyes. If the bow-tie is smaller, it will make your face look enlarged, whereas if it's big, it will make your face look smaller. 3. Dress Shirt Collar Rule © Quora The collar of the dress shirt can make or break your look. An ideal collar touches the skin till the entire neck but doesn't press hard. If you are able to slide in two fingers in between the collar and your neck, then that's a well-fitted collar. The same goes for the shirt cuff. It should give you at least 1 to 1.5 inches of ease and you should be able to slip in two fingers through the cuff. 4. Clothes For Short & Tall Men © Instagram/The Modest Man If you thought wearing baggy or ill-fitted clothes will define your frame, you are highly mistaken. If you are short in height, opt for high-rise pants along with a matching belt as it creates an illusion of height. Whereas, men who are tall can go for low-rise with contrasting belts. 5. The Fit Of The Trousers © iStock The pleats on the trousers are also an important element. One rule to follow, especially if you have wider legs or thighs, is that you should opt for double pleated pants over single pleated ones. This ensures that the attention goes on the silhouette. 6. Your Socks Matter © iStock You can play it safe, by matching the colour of your socks with the rest of your outfit, so it blends well. You can also experiment with prints and patterns, only if the formal setting calls for it. Just make sure you wear them long enough, and not display any skin while sitting. 7. Check Your Underwear © iStock When it comes to underwear, the only two rules men should follow is that prints are not for you, if you are a grown-up and heavily branded underwears do not look good. Simple. The best style that has stood the test of time, are basic cotton boxer shorts. They are ideal ones to spend money on and are quite comfortable on the skin. View the full article
  16. Grooming is an underrated thing and not all men are keen on following a routine. Often, this arena is so ignored that men forget to keep a check on their fingernails as well and hardly pay any heed to it. © iStock If you really care about the appearance of your hands, then read on to find out about some common clipping mistakes you are probably making and how to stop them: 1. Using Traditional Type Of Scissors © iStock There was a time when using a pair of scissors to cut nails worked well. But in today's time, clippers actually reign supreme as they help get rid of sharp edges of the nails. While travelling as well, nail clippers are never confiscated but scissors are. Considering all these things, one needs to be equipped with the right sort of tools for nail cutting. 2. Using Just A Nail File © iStock While caring for your nails, just using a nail filer is not enough. It's supposed to be the last step of nail cutting. First, you need to start with the clippers and then use a file to get better results. 3. Not Taking Care Of Other Parts © iStock It's good that you have cut your nails but what about your cuticles? If there is dirt in it or they are cracked and dry, they won't look well-groomed. While cutting your nails, don't ignore the hangnails and cuticles. Using a clipper is the best way out and for dry cuticles, use jojoba oil for intensive hydration. 4. Not Keeping Your Tools Clean © iStock Sometimes, if the nail-care tools are of low quality, they will catch rust due to the moist environment. This will also be a hassle while cutting your nails. It can lead to infection and if you share the nail cutter with others, make sure it gets cleaned from time to time so that it doesn't catch any germs. 5. Not Using A File At All © iStock Manicures are expensive for a reason. The nail cutting sesh is finished with filing. But at home, if you only trim your nails and don't use a file, the nails will end up having sharp edges. Using a file, on the other hand, can give the nails a smooth texture. Trimming your nails in a round shape helps with ingrown nails. Finally, a quick brush with a file can keep them in good shape. View the full article

  18. You've already read the title and know what this piece is about. It's likely that you unfortunately have had an experience of the pain we speak of here (in that case you deserve a cookie and a hug, because uff) or you want to avoid it, in which case high five because you're smart. Really, no one should have to endure the pain of a nicked testicle. *Shivering even as I type this tbh* via GIPHY Now some of you may just go 'hey why do I even need to shave my balls I like them as they are, au naturel' and that's absolutely justified because you do you homie, but we just don't want you to get in trouble just before that sudden date (hopefully?). It's been a year and let's hope you get back in the game soon. Being prepared never hurt anyone. Having said that, if you don't want to do it, simply don't. There's nothing wrong with furry testicles. It's dangerous and if you don't want to put yourself through that potential ordeal, don't! via GIPHY Let's just go straight to the topic then. Here are 2 things you should strictly never do while shaving your balls, if you want to avoid painful, awkward, nasty accidents. via GIPHY 1. Never start shaving without trimming the hair first. It's important. Have you ever grown a beard that's longer than a stubble? If you have, it will be easier for you to understand it. How did you go about shaving it? Or even if you did it in a salon, do you remember how your barber executed the task? We can bet they didn't straightaway go in with some shaving cream and a razor. First, they must have trimmed it. via GIPHY They did it because it's easier to shave once the length of hair is small and manageable, and it would not give rise to a messy, hair-all-over-the-razor-blade kind of situation. Not trimming your ball fuzz first can give rise to nasty accidents because of lack of visibility and ideal dexterity, and we'd strictly recommend trimming first. via GIPHY 2. Never form a huge pile of lather with your shaving cream and no, please don't go in blind with your razor like you do while shaving your face. That's a bloodbath waiting to happen right there, and you will cry if that happens. Loudly and inconsolably. via GIPHY You see, as much as your brain wants you to believe that your testicles and your hand are in sync, and they will work together as you shave, it's a lie. Your eyes need to be the referee here as it's more of a wrestling match than a boardroom meeting. There's a reason why we say that. via GIPHY The skin on your testicles is very smart, and it's unlike the skin on any other part of your body. Sometimes it hangs low, sometimes it tightens up - depending on temperature and several other factors. The main job of the skin around your balls is to make sure they are warm, protected, and the sperm is healthy. So just like a good guardian, it does whatever it has to. via GIPHY And you know how difficult it is to 'manage' smart people with regular techniques, right? That's exactly the case here. So, instead of lathering up your balls with shaving cream, use something that does the job but doesn't obstruct your view - a body wash or conditioner should do the job. Use one hand to pull and adjust the skin as per the shave strokes, and do it with as much precision and patience like a ninja on their final mission. via GIPHY Along with these two things, please make sure you're not in a hurry and are using water of the temperature which feels pleasant to you, and you should be fine. All the best! View the full article
