  1. Loosened skin is a problem faced by many men. While there is no direct cause, most men are actively in search of remedies or products to reverse this first sign of ageing. There are several skin-related issues that might cause loosened skin on your face. Your skin, with time, starts producing less oil, which makes it dry and saggy. Factors, such as ageing, exposure to the sun, atmospheric pollutants, chemicals in skincare products, and an unhealthy diet, can directly affect the health of your skin. Dryness, sagging, wrinkles, and fine lines develop and are usually accompanied by dullness. In such a situation, you need a planned skin regime to tackle this problem head-on: 1. A Good Moisturizing Agent Firstly, if you have saggy skin, you also need to treat your dry skin for that. So get a good moisturizing agent. Apply the cream regularly and make a habit of wearing this cream daily. © Nykaa 2. A Skin Tightening Mask Once, a week you also need to apply a skin tightening mask to your face so that the loosened skin tightens. The key to skin tightening masks is that you've to let them be on for at least fifteen minutes and not talk or eat while you have the mask on. © Nykaa You can either get the products from the market or you use homemade remedies like: Multani mitti and rose water concoction or yoghurt, egg mixture as both work as great skin tightening masks. © Getty Images © Getty Images 3. A Serum Targetted Towards The Sagging Of The Skin There are a range of serums in the market that target the face and wrinkles and fine lines that help tighten the pores. © Nykaa
  2. Ever since MS Dhoni called time on his Test career, the Indian selectors have been busy trying to fill in the void. They've tried Wriddhiman Saha who did quite an impressive job in the longest format. Then, we saw the ascension of Dinesh Karthik to the Indian team. And now, young Rishabh Pant is being looked upon as Dhoni's worthy successor behind the stumps. Amongst the available options, Dhoni, himself, had backed Pant as his potential successor when he dropped himself from the Indian squad for the Twenty20 International (T20I) series against Australia last November. For a man who considers Dhoni his idol, Pant appeared to have thrived in the limited opportunities he has got in the Indian team so far. His batting prowess surely makes him a valuable addition to the Indian team down the order. But, sadly, the same can't be said about his wicket-keeping skills. At the age of just 21, Pant is still young and continues to learn the art of wicket-keeping. However, with the ICC World Cup around the corner, the margin for error is very low for the youngster. © AP While many have advocated Pant's case in the recent past, the 4th One-Day International (ODI) between India and Australia gave a stark reminder why he is still a work in progress as far as wicket-keeping is concerned. The clash in Mohali saw India losing, what is being deemed as an unlosable game, as Australia chased down the fifth-highest target (359 runs) in ODI cricket. From misreading the conditions to missing key chances, there were a flurry of mistakes Indian cricket team find themselves pondering over as Aussies fought back from being 0-2 to 2-2 in the five-match series. While Kedar Jadhav missed a tough chance at deep midwicket in the 47th over, Shikhar Dhawan put down an absolute dolly at mid-off in the same over. However, amongst the lost opportunities, Pant's blunders were arguably the ones that ended up hurting India's chances the most at the Punjab Cricket Association stadium. In the 39th over, Peter Handscomb had already notched up his maiden ODI hundred and was eager to take the momentum away from India when he decided to step out of the crease, looking for a big shot. Realising Handscomb's intentions, Kuldeep Yadav shortened his length and ensured the batsman missed the ball. But, it was Pant's inability to collect the ball cleanly to effect the stumping that gave a crucial lifeline to Handscomb as Kuldeep and a packed Mohali stadium watched in disbelief. Pant's mistakes...!! pic.twitter.com/qyo9Kpkdox — Vidshots (@Vidshots1) March 10, 2019 But, it was the 44th over that left the Indian team, owing to Pant's blunders, completely red-faced. The first delivery of Yuzvendra Chahal's over saw Pant fluffing another stumping opportunity that could've surely sent dangerous-looking Turner back into the hut. Disheartened by the lost chance, Chahal bowled the third delivery right into the blockhole as Alex Carey just about managed to squeeze it away from the stumps. But, Pant's effort to pull-off Dhoni's 'No Look' throw converted a dot ball into a single. Watch the Mahi magic on loop #INDvNZ https://t.co/btMoJF0xC3 — BCCI (@BCCI) October 26, 2016 The fourth delivery of the same over saw Turner charging down the track only to get beaten wide outside the off-stump. Making amends for his mistake, Pant successfully managed to grab the ball this time around and jumped in appeal for a potential caught behind dismissal. Pant's confidence that the Aussie had edged the ball convinced Virat Kohli to review and even as the replays showed a noticeable spike on 'Ultra-Edge', the third umpire deemed it not out and called for a wide. While Pant should hardly be blamed for the last opportunity as there was actually a spike in replays, the other three blunders undoubtedly proved costly for his team's chances to win the game and seal the series. Though Pant is still young and needs time to establish himself as India's go-to wicket-keeper, the left-hander must learn to work on his strengths rather than copying Dhoni's artistry with the gloves. © AP In the two stumping opportunities he missed, Pant was so eager to whip the bails off that he almost forgot to collect it in the first place. Dhoni's lightening quick glovework is a technique derived through impeccable hand-eye coordination, developed over years of hard work. Similarly, when Pant tried to pull off Dhoni's 'No Look' throw, he looked very casual - something that further evoked a strong reaction from his captain on the field. It's one thing to idolise someone, but, to become like them, is an uphill battle that takes time. Pant might have pulled off Dhoni's unorthodox style of wicket-keeping a million times in the practice sessions. But if you can't do it correctly in crunch situations during a key clash, then, the wise thing would be to stick to the basics, rather than being flamboyant - a lesson Pant must learn to live up to his billing as Dhoni's successor behind the stumps.
  3. Finding the right sized pants is like finding a unicorn. The prospect looks so damn appealing except the chances of spotting one in a lifetime are next to none. But if you are blessed with the knowledge of what works and what to stay away from, you can cut it pretty damn close. Here's a definitive guide that can help you figure out if you're wearing the wrong sized pants. In order to hunt for the right sized pants from the market, here's what you need to keep in mind. So, while you're in the trial room, be on the lookout for pants with: 1. A proper inseam length, A pair of trousers that are neither too short nor too long. A slight break is great, however, a big break definitely means that the pants are too long. © Getty Images 2. Obviously, if they are too loose and baggy, or alternatively skin tight, look for another more appropriate size that fits you well. © Getty Images 3. While wearing the pants, try walking around and jumping to see if the fitting remains snug, also to see if the pants are allowing you to be mobile. A pair of comfortable pants go a long way. 4. Here's a fact: lightweight fabric trousers wrinkle more quickly and look like they do not fit well as opposed to a pair of pants cut from a heavier fabric like wool or tweed fabric that drapes and hangs well and is long lasting. © Getty Images 5. Besides the fit, over the course of the day, the pants will move around. A belt and side-adjusters will help to keep it in place, but only a pair of suspenders can guarantee a great fit all day long. © Getty Images Here are other things you should look out for in the fitting of your pants: 6. If you see wrinkles like these, your pants are too tight in the crotch area. Have the seat seam opened up in case you have enough fabric reserved. © MensXP 7. When you sit, if you end up with bunching rolls of fabric in the fly area and lap and feel there is too much material in this area, consult with an alterations tailor. © MensXP 8. If you can see these wrinkles in pants, chances are the pants were not adjusted properly for him. You may also see that the trousers may cling to the wearer's legs in the back. This definitely signals that you need to wear the right size. © MensXP 9. The reason for the creases is tightness in the seat seam. It has to be let out and reshaped with a heavy iron. Also, it could be your suspenders/braces pulling too hard. Loosen them a little first to see if that fixes the issue. © MensXP 10. A horseshoe fold takes place if the underside of the trouser is cut too close to the wearer's thigh. Diagonal creases on the inside of your thighs and your pants that stick to the calves are also visible. In such a scenario, you need more length in the front of the trouser, in order for the back to look normal. © MensXP 11. If you see wrinkles when you are seated, chances are your pants have the wearer in the area of the knee when walking. You will definitely have to consult a good alterations tailor. © MensXP 12. If you get creases that start in the crotch area and continue vertically left and right, the trousers are definitely too big for you. Have them adjusted in the seat, crotch and side seams. © MensXP
  4. New in the dating game? Still testing out the warm waters? That's alright, it does take courage and a lot of patience to play the game right and once you get the hang of it, you're pretty sorted. Making the first move on a girl is quite tactical and takes a lot more than confidence but the trick is to get it right the first time so you don't mess up the next time! Not like you can't mess up. Of course, you can, and by mess up, I mean you can try your best and even then she may not be impressed. But the fact of the matter is you did try your best. © UTV Motion Pictures Sometimes, making a move on someone can apply initiating a kiss or a make-out session but here, we're just going to talk about how to address your interest in a girl if you like her, have seen her and want to know her better or have known her a while and are a little clueless about how to approach her. Here are 5 sure-shot ways that can help you in making your first move: (1) Signs Are Important Signs are like an indication of whether or not you should make your move, so they are important. Signs can come through body language, the way she interacts, eye contact and other gestures. For example, if you like someone at a bar, you will know if she's interested in you if she makes eye contact with you, which reeks of interest. That's your cue to go up to her and start talking to her. Similarly while in a conversation if she strokes your arm, laughs at your jokes, then you know you can make a move further because that's a sure-shot indication of the fact that she's interested in you. © AA Films (2) Go With The Flow By that I mean stop over-thinking about the how's and what if's and just go with the first thought in your head. If the first thought is just going to the girl you like and telling her about how you feel, then go for it. Wing it as best as you can, it works most times because it reflects the confidence you exude! © Eros International (3) Try Humour You can approach a girl and crack a funny one to get her attention since girls love men who're humorous. In fact, that's one of the best ways to make a move. If you floor her with humour she would automatically want to spend time with you because you make her laugh. It's as simple as that. © Zee Tv (4) Approach Her Friends If you know her friend(s) then maybe you can try and approach them first and strike up a conversation with them and gain some perspective about the girl you like, if they're willing to help. This helps you kill the awkwardness you may develop while talking to her and boost some much-needed confidence too! © Eros International (5) Compliment Her Mind Yes, she loves hearing she's beautiful, she'd appreciate you getting her a drink but what most men don't do is compliment her mind. Strike up a rather interesting conversation with her. It could be about life, likes and the universe but pick up anything and hear her perspective on it. If it makes sense to you, definitely pay her a compliment because she deserves it. © Fox Star Studios Making the first move isn't hard if you follow through with these points. Just keep in mind to know that it's okay if she says 'no'. Rejection is part and parcel of the process, so it should be taken with positivity. After all, it all boils down to consent and how respectful you are in general towards women. Other than that, keep trying till you ace your moves!

  6. Everyone is aware of these nasty little buggers, but do you know what exactly blackheads are? Let us educate you a bit before we get onto the treatment part.

Body hair is an extension of you and you really shouldn't be hating it or be insecure because of it. In fact, it's an extension of you that you can modify and mould in whichever way you like. However, it's important to know how to deal with it. There are specific ways to deal with body hair. If you don't follow these, then definitely the growth might present to you as a problem. If you're in the category of people who want to permanently get rid of body hair, and you don't want to deal with the regular bi-monthly hassle of shaving, you could consider these strong options: 1. IPL: Intense Pulsed Light © Instagram In this method, hair is removed for the long term with broad spectrum pulse of light, which basically means that it targets the melanin in the hair in contrast to the melanin in the skin. Once used, it gets rid of unwanted body hair for the long term. For application, simply treat the desired area of the body every two weeks for an eight week period for effective results. However, it's important that you talk to a professional first before you get into this course of treatment. 2. Electrolysis © artofmanilness In electrolysis, the professionals use a slim needle to poke each hair shaft separately, the technique delivers tiny shocks of electricity to the hair follicle, killing the cells that help hair grow. It's relatively expensive and time-consuming. It'll take more sessions to get all the growth out. 3. Laser Treatment © cosmoderma Laser treatment involves a beam that heats up the follicle and puts it in a dormant stage preventing any growth. The results depend on your skin type: the level of pigmentation and the amount of melanin in your hair. Laser treatment offers a permanent reduction, if done right you don't have to engage in regular treatments again.

  11. If we go down the whole inclusive narrative (which is the correct thing to do tbh), all smiles are beautiful. However, anyone who denies that they have not desired pearl-white teeth at some point or the other in their life, they're simply lying. White teeth are attractive not only because of their aesthetic appeal, they are also an indicator of good dental hygiene, which is in fact a desirable thing. Keeping that in mind, we have listed out 5 super effective home remedies that will help one get visibly whiter teeth in less than a month's time. 1. Oil Pulling © Shine365 Oil pulling is done by taking a teaspoonful of oil in your mouth, swishing it around for 15-20 minutes, and then spitting it out. It's an ancient technique that detoxifies your body, starting with the mouth. 2. Drinking less tea/coffee and quitting smoking © Yournewswire Quitting smoking will considerably decrease nicotine staining. Excessive consumption of coffee, tea, and strong dark sodas also stain your teeth, the effects of which can be long term. Everyone should make a conscious attempt to avoid these food items. 3. Brushing with baking soda © Orawellness Baking soda has natural whitening properties, and is a natural abrasive. Plus, it helps in creating an alkaline environment in your mouth, thereby restricting bacterial growth. All of these result in whiter teeth. 4. Eating fruits like apple, papaya, and pineapple © Health and Mind Care Enzymes found in these fruits will naturally help whiten your teeth, on regular consumption. 5. Brushing and flossing © Markham Dental Centre This one seems basic, but it's the most important step. Teeth staining happen mainly because of food stuck in your mouth for a long time. Brush properly (with vertical movement for your front teeth in a way that cleans the crevices) twice and day, and never go to bed without brushing post dinner. Flossing once a day will make sure food is not stuck in between your teeth, and will also take care of excess plaque.
  12. Diets, diets and DIETS! There are so many diets floating about that you can never seemingly make up your mind to stick to one. It gets tiring and moreover, frustrating to pick the best diet suitable for your goals. Keeping it simple, there isn't any such thing called the 'best diet'. Yup, one diet never fits all. However, there can be some diets that can have the opposite effect and ensure you never achieve your fitness goals. So, if weight loss is your target, then stay away from these three diets: 1. The Paleo Diet © Thinkstock The Paleo diet was popularized by an American nutritionist Loren Cordain. It tries to mimic what our palaeolithic ancestors ate and eliminates all types of modern human-made foods such as agricultural foods (grains, wheat, rice, pulses), dairy (cheese, milk, butter) and processed foods (KFC, Lays, McDonald's). It essentially consists of meat, fruits, nuts, and leafy vegetables. The basic idea is: Since our ancestors were lean, strong and active, consuming a diet which they ate will provide us with the same attributes. The problem? This is an extremely flawed assumption. Our ancestors were not lean and strong because of the food they ate, it was the time period on earth wherein if you didn't have those traits you would be dead. Also, our palaeolithic ancestors were spread across the earth and consumed a variety of foods depending on geographic location and availability. ' Thus following this expensive diet (nuts and red meat are expensive) is not going to speed up your muscle gain or fat loss process. And unless you do not enjoy eating these foods on a regular basis there's no need to follow this diet. 2. The GM Or General Motor Diet © Thinkstock If you think the name of this diet is stupid, then brace yourself for its even stupider protocol. The GM diet was developed by the employees of a vehicle manufacturer company, General Motors in 1985. The diet does not account for calories or macro/micro-nutrients but is broken up into seven days, each with strict rules about which food groups you can consume. Here is what this diet looks like: The diet doesn't specify the maximum or minimum amount of food to be consumed each day. Day One Eat only fruit — any kind except bananas. Day Two Eat only vegetables in raw or cooked form. Limit potatoes to breakfast only. Day Three Eat only fruits and vegetables of any kind except bananas and potatoes. Day Four Consume only bananas and milk. Day Five Eat two 10-ounce (284-gram) portions of beef, chicken or fish. In addition to the meat, you may only eat 6 whole tomatoes. Vegetarians may replace meat with either brown rice or cottage cheese. Day Six Eat two 10-ounce (284-gram) portions of beef, chicken or fish. Vegetarians may replace meat with either brown rice or cottage cheese. Increase your water intake by two glasses to flush out extra uric acid. Day Seven Eat only brown rice, fruits, fruit juice, and vegetables. Surprisingly, this diet is also recommended by some dumb Registered Dieticians. And here is the problem: except day six & seven, you are only consuming carbohydrates or fibre on the majority of days. For optimal functioning of the human body carbs are just optional (this does not mean they are bad!) but protein and fats are critical, and this diet severely lacks both. Following this diet may result in weight loss due to the huge caloric deficit that is bound to happen, but it will also cause plenty of muscle loss and will make you feel miserable. And once you come off it, a lot of weight will also be regained. 3. Boiled Food Diet + No Sugar & Salt Diets © YouTube This is the holy grail of every bro scientist gym trainer, you go to them asking how to lose fat in the fastest way possible, and they will recommend: "eat only boiled food and refrain from using sugar and salt". Well, in a way, this works because you will begin to hate food so much that you will stop consuming it and inevitably lose weight. Coming to the point: Science has proven numerous times that the body is not concerned with the source but the nutrients. And the fundamental process behind every diet is energy balance i.e. if you eat more than you burn, you will gain weight and if you eat less than you burn you will lose weight. Thus following a diet like this, which gets you fed up in a few days, is a pure waste of time and energy. You did not get overweight in a few days or weeks, therefore do not expect to get fit in a few days or weeks. Invest in a trainer which can design a training and nutrition plan that is feasible as well as enjoyable for you. All the best for your fitness goals in the coming year!
  13. Premature hair loss is tragic and terribly upsetting, but that doesn't mean there aren't ways to take care of it. Now, hair loss can happen in two major ways: a receding hairline or loss from the crown region. Male pattern baldness can be caused because of a variety of reasons. From familial genes to low levels testosterone to high-stress levels. The pattern depends on which hair follicles are genetically programmed to shed first. The key to stopping hair loss is to be proactive. As soon as you see the first signs of hair loss, you need to start taking actions against them. The hair strands are made of this sulfur-containing protein called Keratin which relies on dietary supplements for growth. So, if your routine diet consists of low intake of protein, that definitely means that it's contributing towards finer weaker hair. 1. Dietary Supplements Try incorporating foods rich in vitamin B, zinc, iron. You could also consult a dietician, but foods like apricot, cereal, liver meat work well. Aside from food, you could also get daily supplements that are rich in vitamins like: Zinc Supplement © Amazon Price: 1,649 Buy it here Vitamin B Super Complex © Amazon Price: 1,499 Buy it here For other supplements that mainly focus on hair regrowth, it's better to ask a doctor first. 2. Styling Products For thinning and weak hair, it's better to steer clear from styling products that affect your hair growth negatively like clay, gel and pomades. Rather, a lighter styling option like the mousse keeps your hair in place and does not affect it negatively either. © Amazon Price: 850 Buy it here 3. Nix Dandruff Dandruff acts like a catalyst to male pattern baldness. It's definitely one of the symptoms which if you take care of will take care of slowing down hair loss. So take anti-dandruff remedies seriously. In case you want to know some cool anti-dandruff hacks, take a look at this. You should also switch to anti-dandruff shampoos for quicker results. Oiling your hair regularly is also super important. © Amazon Price: 350 Buy it here 4. Also, Smoking A study by the National Taiwan University revealed that smoking also hastens hair loss in men. Especially if you're a chain smoker, it is more likely that you suffer from mild to severe hair loss. © fashionbeands If the crop on your head is dear to you, then maybe it's time you give up smoking. 5. Approved Drugs There are certain over-the-counter medicines available to tackle hair loss. It's important though that you consult an experienced professional before taking these medicines because even if they work, they are a little expensive but also have a lifetime dependency, which means once you start popping the pills, you can't stop. They also have certain side effects that are specific to each pill like reduced libido, so you might want to consider this one carefully. © Amazon 6. A Hair Transplant If it's too late and you've lost most of your crop and desperately want it back, you should consider a hair transplant. More men below the age of 35 are considering going for transplants. It's a more permanent solution to baldness. They insert healthy hair follicles from the back of your head and transplant them to the bald region. It's definitely a better and more permanent solution than wigs and while a big investment, the results are great. © fashion beans
  14. You could have a good grooming routine in place but if you're not taking care of your knees and elbows, they will start to look like a couple of shades darker than your skin tone and ten times more brittle. This can also be a big turn-off because it's never pleasant to touch rough skin like that. Just like your face, your elbows and your knees also need your attention. If you've begun to notice dark and patchiness in your knees and elbows, it's time to pay attention to them. Firstly, the golden rule is to moisturize and more so if your skin needs attention. Also, try one of these effective remedies for faster results. 1. Coconut Oil And Walnut Powder A concoction of coconut oil and walnut powder acts as a great exfoliator. Coconut oil is one of the best oils for hydrating the skin. It also has vitamin E which helps lighten the patchy tone, and the thick granules of walnut together make a great agent for seeding out patched dirt. Make a thick paste of coconut oil and walnut powder. Use the mixture as a scrub in shower. After shower, apply an extra layer of coconut oil to seal in the moisture from the shower. © livestrong 2. Baking soda and Milk Baking soda is a great exfoliant that will seed out dead skin cells. The milk then adds acts as a moisturizer to lock in the hydration. Mix one tablespoon of baking soda and milk together, apply the mixture to the patchy areas and massage in circular motion for 5 minutes each. Repeat on every alternate day until you see the results. © livestrong 3. Hydrogen Peroxide Hydrogen peroxide is a great agent for weeding out dark skin cells.

Turmeric Powder And Yogurt A concoction of turmeric powder and yogurt is also a great choice for tackling the patchy regions of your body. While turmeric cleanses skin impurities and evens out skin tone, yogurt acts as a nourishing agent. Make a paste of the two with one spoon turmeric in 3 tablespoons yogurt and apply twice a day for faster results. © livestrong
  15. So, 2018 is quickly drawing to a close, which means that it's officially time to start making your New Year resolutions. One such resolution that's usually near the top of such lists has to do with being more healthy, and one of the healthiest changes you can make to your lifestyle, is to take up running. However, while it's much more hassle-free than joining a gym, it still requires more than a pair of running shoes and a willingness to sweat. To really get the most out of running regularly, there are a few things you need to know about before you even take your first stride. So, to help you adopt and stick to this healthy lifestyle change, here are a few basic tips that will help you kick-start your journey the right way, stay on track, and reap the rewards when you do get out there: 1. Visualise A Finish Line © Official Instagram: Milind Soman The first thing to do after you decide to start running is to set yourself a target to work towards. It could be a race you want to participate in, such as a marathon or a sprint. It could even be a specific time you want to beat or a particular distance you want to master. Keeping a goal in mind not only helps keep you motivated, but it also dictates your training pattern, nutrition regime and the kind of running equipment you should purchase to keep track of your progress. However, just because you hit your target doesn't mean you've reached the end of your journey. They say that every finish line is the start of a new race, so once you achieve your initial goal, the next thing to do is to set yourself a new one. 2. 'Gear Up' In The Right Way © Pixabay There's a lot of equipment that will help you along the way, but the most important piece you need to purchase is the right pair of running shoes. And no, just grabbing the most comfortable pair of shoes will not do - you need proper running shoes. Why, do you ask? Well, unlike your other trainers, running shoes are designed to allow your foot to strike the ground in such a way that it reduces the impact that travels up your leg. They're also designed to fit your feet snugly so that they don't slip and slide when you're on the move or cause any painful blisters on your feet. Don't just go into the store and buy the first pair that looks cool or go by brand name alone - take the time to find the pair that's perfect for you. It might require a little more time and effort, and take a chunk out of your wallet, but it'll reduce the risk of suffering common and painful injuries, making it totally worth it in the long run (pun intended!). Pro tip: If you're on an incredibly tight budget, you check out the best running shoes under Rs. 1000 for men. 3. Find The Perfect Track © Official Instagram: Milind Soman Once you're fully equipped to head out on your runs, the next thing to do is to figure out where you can run. A treadmill might be your first thought, but outdoor running is always a better option since treadmills 'pull' the ground under your feet and don't involve any wind resistance. This makes running somewhat easier, meaning you won't be able to enjoy the same results as outdoor running. The ideal running track is soft (think grass-covered), scenic, well-lit and free of traffic. This might be more of a task if you live in the city where space is limited, so mapping out a running track in a nearby park might be your best option. It's a good idea to consult other runners about the routes they prefer because you might find places you had overlooked before or didn't even know existed. 4. Fuel Yourself Correctly © Pixabay You might have heard your favourite athlete talk about how pasta and other carb-rich foods are an important part of their pre-match routine, but this does not give you a free pass to pile pasta on your plate! A clean, healthy diet is enough to fuel you when you're starting off. The time for strict dieting comes only when you're training seriously for a marathon or another competitive race. Hydration is another important factor for a runner, and many runners tend to overdo it. The important thing is to resist the urge to gulp down lots of water before you run because drinking excessive amounts of fluid doesn't serve any purpose. Instead, focus on drinking only when you're feeling thirsty. 5. Persistence Pays Off © Pexels Staying motivated is another aspect most beginners struggle with, which is why so many running regimes seem to get off to a promising beginning only to fizzle out midway. If you're just starting out, you should prepare yourself for sore legs and maybe even a sore back. This doesn't mean running is bad for you - it simply means that your body isn't used to the physical activity. So don't hang up your running shoes at the first signs of soreness, because the aches and pains WILL settle down eventually!
  16. Dorain Yates, on Joe Rogan's podcast, once said that the exercises to build muscle will never change. And every day, in the gym, hustling my way through iron, I find this as the supreme truth. That's exactly what the old school exercises gave us- thick and big muscles. Fancy new school exercises are well, yeah, just fancy to look at. The big compound moves will always be the cornerstone of the muscular development. One such old school giving is the dumbbell pullover. Lost in time, this exercise was once a staple in every meathead's upper body routine. Now, not many people do it. Why and how did the pullover become such a controversial exercise? Let's decipher. The Dumbbell Pullover © Pinterest Right through the 50s till the early 70s, the dumbbell pullover was a staple chest and back exercise. Reg Park, Sergio Olivia, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lou Feriggno and many other golden era kings advocated this exercise. The Disappearance Of The Pull-Over © Facebook Enter Arthur Nautilus, the man who introduced the pullover machine into the world of bodybuilding. Nothing was the same after that. Since the bodybuilders now had access to a more specific machine, the inclination towards the free weight dumbbell pullover diminished. Soon after, the 90s saw the exit of the pullover with the pompous entry of the functional fitness advocates. Bashed left, right and centre and the pullovers were labeled a 'shoulder-killer'. Does It Really Cause Shoulder Injuries? Almost any exercise done wrongly can cause injury. Either you are just too weak or simply lack the mobility to perform the pullover. Before jumping right into a pullover, check your over head shoulder pressing. Can you press with a full range of motion? If yes, go ahead. If no, you need mobility work. Can you do dead-hang pull-ups- all the way down and all the way up? If yes, you can try the pullover. To know whether if this exercise is for you or not, take a lighter weight and perform some initial reps. If you feel something weird in your shoulders, it's not for you. How Bros Do It Wrong! 1) Not bracing the core. 2) Dead straight arms by locking the elbow. Always maintain a slight bend. 3) Bending the elbows way too much and hence involving the triceps. How To Do It Right 1) First things first, tighten your core. 2) Use a moderately heavy weight to start with. 3) Don't lock the elbows into a straight arm. Keep a slight bend, not too much either. 4) Don't over-stretch in the over head position. 5) Keep the shoulders depressed (retracted) into the bench. What Does it Really Build Though? © Facebook Well, both. The pullover was once called the upper-body squat for a reason. It hits nearly every damn inch of your back and the chest. Depends on how you perform it, chest and back can be targeted separately. But all in all, it does hit both the muscle groups.
  17. Fights and tiffs are an inevitable part of any healthy relationship. After all, if you aren't having the occasional (and NOT habitual!) tiffs with your girlfriend, there's something seriously flawed with your relationship. But as healthy as those occasional fights can be, making up with your girlfriend after a fight can be an agonizingly painful exercise. And considering the onus will almost always lie upon you to make things right, this task becomes even more daunting. And so, to help you get out of such a predicament, here are four simple yet effective ways of making up with your girlfriend that will put you right back in her good books: 1) Give Her Time AND Space Before you do anything else to make up with your girlfriend, you need to absolutely make sure that you give her enough time AND space to get in the right frame of mind. After all, you won't be able to achieve ANYTHING, let alone fix her mood, when she's still reeling from the anger or annoyance of the tiff. So give her time to calm herself down, and you can then move on to the next step. Which brings us to... 2) Don't Shy Away From Having A Conversation If you give her the time and space to tone down her anger, chances are that she'd want to talk to you about the fight you guys had. Now, most guys tend to run away from conversations like these, primarily because they really don't know how to navigate their way through them without making things worse. Well, if you have the conversation with an open mind, actively LISTEN to what she's saying, and acknowledge your screw-ups, you'll be able to put forward your own point of view without turning her off. On the contrary, she'll be more likely to understand and listen to your grievances if you listen to hers. 3) Get Her A Gift © iDiva While we are not advocating for you to solely take the materialistic route, getting your girlfriend a gift, as a means of making up with her, does make for a sweet gesture that can help lighten up her mood and ease the tension. Avoiding cliche tropes like flowers or chocolates is advisable, especially since the entire point of gifting her something is to make up for a fight. So try and opt for a more personalized gift, or opt for something that you know she'd love to own. Pro Tip: If you are finding it a bit challenging to get her a gift, something which we are certain is a predicament that most guys out there will find themselves in, you can check out the iDiva Beauty Box for your girl. 4) Take Her Out To A Place She Will Love © Dharma Productions Finally, you should think about taking her out to a place she will love. This can be anything, from a movie she's been wanting to watch for the longest while or a restaurant that she absolutely loves to dine at, to even a nearby city or hill station that she's been wanting to explore. Apart from helping cheer up her mood, it will surely make her forget all about the fight you both had just a few hours (or days) ago!
  18. Winter is almost here. As much as you're looking forward to the chilly mornings, hot chocolates, and extra holidays, there are a few things about winters that are not very festive or pleasant. One of the most overlooked things in that list is the plight of your hair. Just like the winter skin is bereft of moisture, it reflects on your hair as well, and it ends up being dry, brittle, and lifeless. However, there are ways in which it can be taken care of without much effort. Here are 4 easy, but effective things to do every day, that will ensure that your hair stays soft, healthy, glossy, and dandruff-free in the freezing weather. 1. Don't wash your hair every day © Pozitivnap Washing your hair every day will strip it off its natural oils. So, dryness will increase. The low moisture in the air will only make it worse. Also, washing hair in the winter, and not immediately drying it afterwards can make sure that you fall sick. 2. Shampoo or not, don't forget to condition © Birchbox Every time you wash your hair, with or without shampoo, it gets dry. The only immediate way for you to replenish some of that moisture is conditioning it regularly. 3. Regulate the temperature of the water you use to wash your hair © Monat Global Yes, it feels great to stand under that flaming shower. It almost doubles up as a hug. But don't indulge in that all the time. Hot water is neither good for your hair, nor your skin. Warm water is fine, but don't go overboard. Even if you use a lot of hot water, try rinsing your hair once in cold water to help retain the moisture. 4. Use a mild anti dandruff shampoo and lemon water rinse © Wholefully Whenever you shampoo, make sure it's a mild anti-dandruff one. Also, every time you wash your hair, try using a lemon rinse to finish it off. Add the juice of one lemon to about a liter of water, and rinse your hair and scalp with it. It will help your scalp stay dandruff-free, and make your hair glossy.
  19. Be it summer, monsoon, or the pleasant (or dreaded? Only if you live in Delhi, though) winters, an itchy scalp is that scary, annoying, unwelcome guest that can haunt you anytime. The worst thing? You don't exactly know why it's happening. But there are remedies. Actually, it isn't difficult to get rid of an itchy scalp if you know what ingredients to use. The best bit? These are just common ingredients that are present in your kitchen! Read on! Disclaimer: Please make sure it's not lice, beforehand, as that will require separate treatment. 1. Lemon Juice: © Twitter Lemon juice is naturally antimicrobial and has an anti-inflammatory effect as well, when applied on the scalp. Just squeeze out the juice of one big lemon, apply it on your scalp evenly with a cotton ball, and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with water and you're good to go. Do it once or twice a week, and you will notice a difference soon. 2. Coconut Oil: © Healthline The underlying cause for itchiness in your scalp, almost all the time, is dryness. Coconut oil is the best moisturizer when it comes to your scalp. Take some coconut oil, heat it up for a bit, and apply it, while massaging your scalp. Keep it for as long as you can, and wash it off with a mild shampoo. 3. Baking Soda © Twitter Take 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda, and make a paste of it with water. Apply it on your scalp, and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Baking soda is an antibacterial and anti-fungal agent, plus it helps in neutralizing the pH of your scalp. 4. Apple Cider Vinegar © Healthline Mix one part of apple cider vinegar with 4 parts of water, and massage your scalp with the mixture. The malic acid present in apple is antibacterial and anti-fungal, plus it also acts as an astringent - thereby reducing the itching considerably. 5. Onion Juice © Twitter Take an onion and squeeze out the juice using a blender, or however else you want to. Apply it on your scalp using a cotton ball, and leave it on for 20 minutes before washing it off. The onion juice will keep your scalp infection free, and will also reduce any inflammation.
  20. Most of us can think of at least one teacher who made an impact on our lives and gave it a new meaning. They moved beyond the regular curricula to bridge the gaps and join the dots for us, to make sense of the lessons a little better. Some would share anecdotes that left a lasting impression on our young minds which we continue to live by even today, without realising that it was our teacher's doing. via GIPHY But while we can never be grateful enough to our dear gurus for all the efforts they put in for us and the headaches they had to live through for our sake, we would like to say that we may have found some teachers, who hold the potential to rival them in terms of the lessons they taught us for life. Having moved out of their watchful eyes and caring hearts that constantly looked out for us, we want to admit that we have since found a few teachers in life who are effective but ruthless to the tipping point, and yet deliver lessons that are no less than valuable. 1. Failure via GIPHY This one is rightly said to be life's greatest teacher, because failure not only allows you to face your shortcomings but also helps you to learn from them and better yourself for round 2. It's not false when they say there's more to learn from failure than success. Failure teaches you to live your life with a pinch of salt. 2. Heartbreak via GIPHY Another one that most of us have lived through at least once in our lives, and we know how terribly painful it can be to endure, especially when you have been too invested in the relationship. But a heartbreak can also help you understand what exactly you're looking for in your romantic relationships, as well as about the kind of commitments and sacrifices you're ready to make. 3. Loss Of A Loved One via GIPHY There is no parallel to this one. It's one of life's greatest punch in the gut and one that is also inevitable. The loss of a loved one really makes us conscious of the fact that life is transient and we must make the most of the moments we share with the ones we love. As great as the pain of loss is, it does teach us to appreciate the people in our life more. 4. Poverty via GIPHY We truly hope none of you has to ever live through it, but as much as we hate it or like to believe that it ain't gonna happen to us, the truth is that no one knows. That's the thing about money and power, no one can tell when the wheel of fortune turns its back on you. But this can also reveal who your true friends are, and can help you distinguish between the ones who only love you for your big bucks. 5. Deceit via GIPHY Those who have lived through it would tell you that this can be a shattering experience, that makes trusting another individual ever again a real task. However, once you have been cheated, you become extra careful as to who you place your trust with, as well as come to realise that not everyone who wishes to learn about your life is a well-wisher. These 5 teachers are ruthless, yes, but the lessons they impart ensure that we lead a more consciously aware life, that does not make us bitter but instead, help us grow into better individuals prepared to take on life's greater challenges.
  21. Men's grooming is a topic that entails overall care and upkeep of your body--including your groin, ears and even your nose. After all, who doesn't want thrice the amount of oxygen intake? Our humour be damned, all we're saying is: if you want your nostrils to look their best (and want the women to think highly of grooming regime), you've got to trim those strands up your passage. Some increase in length, get unruly and well, look rather dirty. Clean the mess up! Here, we've listed down three easy ways of trimming your nasal passage. Pick one as per convenience, and groom the hell up! © Centre Feel Well 1. Grab A Pair Of Scissors. Easy. The word 'scissors' may sound familiar, but 'nose hair scissors' may not. One, because they're not the same and two, don't use your ordinary scissors to snip your nasal hair (unless, you want to hurt the skin in your passage). Scissors to be used to trim your nose hair are designed with specially-designed safety uppers, that prevent any damage to your skin while you snip. But of course, since you're just snipping the strands, the hair will grow back in no time. However, this is a great way to keep them in check! © Linder 2. Heard Of Nose Hair Trimmers? In all honesty, while nose hair trimmers actually exist, they can cause some irritation to your skin. But again, honestly, this depends on your personal experience; you may not be faced with any annoyance too. That said, choose one with a dry and wet mode, and one that can really glide through your nasal jungle. But while you're using them, don't rub them too hard on the skin. That won't be a pleasant sight for your skin. © Hammacher Schlemmer 3. Yeah, You Can Wax Your Nose Hair Too. Using an applicator, apply a slight amount of melted wax to your nasal passage, wait for about a minute and a half or two, and then — yank it off (downwards). But while this may be a harsh method for you, remember: this will leave your nasal passage hair-free for the longest time out of the three methods here. Rather bear some pain than waste time, no?
  22. Humans, as a species, are obsessed with how their mops appear. And though, this held true for only women first, men too, are now investing time and money in taming them. They're aware that well-tamed hair can enhance their appearance, so they'd rather relent, you know? But of all the things men are crazy about (in the hair styling space), achieving thicker and voluminous strands is their primary aim. It boosts their confidence, makes them feel great and all in all, let's admit: thick hair on men look great. But what if, genetically or unfortunately, one doesn't have thick hair? © Pooja Entertainment Now that's where these easy hacks would come in: 1. Texture Powder This may sound uncanny to you, but just fine powder can add volume to your hair. Just sprinkle it in and you'd notice an instant lift. How? Well, the trick lies in the ingredients of this product; that boost the friction between your strands. You can literally throw it right on your hair roots and as per the amount of volume you desire, use a preferred amount. Use a texture powder right after you've towel-dried your hair, gone past a blast-dry and are all set to style them. We'd recommend using the American Crew Boost Powder: © Amazon India Price: Rs. 1,854 Buy here 2. Hair-Thickening Shampoo Medically, while it's impossible for off-the-rack products to enhance the thickness of your hair, let's just say, they do improve it by at least 20% anyway. That too, only if you use them regularly. Shampoos, that are aimed at thickening your hair, contain some special polymers that give your hair shaft a collective bounce. Result? Over time of usage, a quick mask of added volume and well, much thicker hair on your scalp. Give the GO247 Mint Thickening Shampoo a try. © Amazon India Price: Rs. 2,477 Buy here 3. Sea-Salt Spray Yeah, much like food, your hair needs salt too. But most primarily — if hair-thickening is on your mind. The idea is simple: sea-salt sprays add volume, texture and offer a lot more control on your hair. They absorb all the excess oil and with ample usage, make your hair appear plump. Spray it into your hair right before blow-drying and experience a quick volume-pump, after you're done styling your hair. We're recommending the R+Co Rockaway Salt Spray for Indian men. © Amazon India Price: Rs. 3,863 Buy here Final words: Hair thickening products are temporary measures and in the best case, work on hair that's more than two inches in length. If you're actually suffering from hair-thinning, we'd suggest you turn to medical help.
