  2. Not all beards are equal but all of them are great in their own unique way. While most men embrace a clean-shave, stubble or a full beard, not everyone is happy with what they have. One of the problems that men face is uneven or scanty beard growth. Most men end up shaving it off completely in frustration of not knowing any better. A patchy beard is only a nightmare if you treat it like one. Instead of getting frustrated at what you don't have, it's best to focus and enhance on what you do have. We know you may have tried some of these out but since no two beards are the same, we advise you to be a little patient and start with the tips that you feel will benefit you the most. What Is A Patchy Beard? A beard is one that grows out unevenly and has patches of thick and thin strands of hair. Initially, when men start growing out a beard, they start to experience patchiness. Halfway through the process, they give up and decide to adopt a clean-shaven look. This often leads to a lot of frustration too since there is a lot of stigma attached around a beard for men. © iStock A patchy beard can exist due to many reasons. Some men are less endowed than others, some are just not eating right or resting enough due to stress, lacking nutrition, hormone imbalance issues, and so on. Testosterone and DHT are the two hormones that influence the hair growth on your head as well as your beard. Except for your genes, all the other factors can be balanced out for the better. Let It Grow Out Patience is the key here. Let your beard grow out and don't be tempted to start shaving it everyday out of fear of it being scanty. Eventually, your beard will seem thicker. Every beard has a distinct growth pattern. You can only make the most of your beard once you observe its growth pattern. Of course, you can never be sure if the gaps will eventually fill out but you can definitely do your part in trying to enhance the growth. If your beard starts to grow thick with time, great. In case it doesn't, there's help on offer. You can always use beard growth products to help your beard grow fast. __ECOMPRODUCT__297__ © MensXP Must Have Products For Men With Patchy Beard To make sure that your beard reaches its fullest potential, it's important you embrace some products that will continue to be a part of your beard care routine. It goes without saying that choosing the right ones can give your beard the best chance of reaching its potential.. Beard Growth Oil: A beard growth oil is a multipurpose beard grooming product. Unlike a normal beard oil, a beard growth oil will healthify your beard as well as make it appear fuller and denser. A beard oil makes it super easy to style your beard too. __ECOMPRODUCT__298__ © iStock Beard Dyes: If you are a man who gets a light beard, you can consider dyeing it. Darker colors tend to look more dense and thick than light colors. They also have a statement appeal to it. Moreover, you will get a chance to be experimental too! It is a temporary yet a quick hack for last minute emergencies. © iStock A Little Make-Up: An eyebrow pencil is all that you will need for this. Take one and fill in your beard with small strokes. Go with a light hand and repeat until you have filled up the patches. Remember to not touch your face or else you will remove the product. Practice thoroughly and no one will know you have a patchy beard. © iStock Patchy Beard Styles To Try Out Depending on how patchy your beard is, you can take inspiration from these beard styles and work your way around your beard patches with style! © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP __ECOMPRODUCT__300__ Explore More View the full article
  3. Bad breath is a big put off despite being something all of us experience after waking up every morning. © Getty Images But what's worse is having a bad stench in the middle of the day in a work environment or going on a date with a bad stench. One assumes, that the morning brushing ritual is enough to tackle bad breath, but it's always not the case. So, here's the thing: if you're dealing with a bad case of bad breath, here's what you can do about it. 1. Always Carry Mints © Getty Images Handy mints are so easy to carry around. This is especially helpful because you can pop up one whenever you feel the need to. They're good at refreshing your mouth in the middle of the night or right before a party after work. 2. Don't Forget A Handy Mouthwash © Getty Images A handy mouthwash will be your top gun in your arsenal against bad stench throughout the day. In times of emergency, you can just use the mouthwash, to be certain of doing the job that sometimes mints may not be enough to tackle. 3. Replace Your Toothbrush Quarterly © Getty Images This makes sure that you're giving your teeth effective cleansing. Worn-out toothbrushes have bent bristles that aren't sharp enough to go into the crevices to get the food residue out. 4. Add Floss To Your Brushing Routine © Getty Images For the gunk stuck between your teeth that the brush can't reach, floss is enough to get it out. This gunk is sometimes responsible for the morning stench. In fact, using floss regularly also prevents cavities. 5. Never Forget To Drink WaterIf you have a party to go to, set a reminder on your phone that reminds you to drink water hourly. Drinking water helps with hangovers for the next day and lessens the chances of alcoholic breath. View the full article
  4. While you cannot physically grow long hair overnight or even over many nights, you can, however, use certain hacks that can quicken the process of growing the hair. In fact, these hacks might make your hair look healthier as well. Hair typically only grows a quarter inch or a half an inch max per month. But, getting long hair is only possible if it is healthy and doesnât have split ends. So, here are some of the useful tips that you can use that might actually work: 1. Get Frequent TrimsIt's certain that if you want long hair that is healthy and also fuller-looking, getting trims every three weeks can make sure that there are no split ends in your hair. Contrary to popular belief, if you don't get trims, your hair is not going to look as healthy. © Getty Images 3. Rinse With Cold WaterWashing your hair with cold water at the end of your shower can give an additional boost of hair growth. Cold water lays down the outer layer of your hair more smoothly which prevents damage, even though the cold showers definitely take more effort. View the full article
  5. God hasnât exactly been kind to Indian men, especially when we speak of body types and body chemistry. It is very easy for us to just grow out like ginger, even if we have a solid and balanced diet, it is extremely difficult for us to metabolise alcohol, and worst of all, for a vast majority of us, going bald is almost guaranteed. Male pattern baldness is a sad reality of like for most of us. © iStock Now, there are a number of ways using which we can actually put off going bald for a long time- again, eating right, using hair products that are simply the best and that suits us, or getting some expensive treatment done that replenishes your hair. With that being said, as a proverb in Hindi conveys rather succinctly, has anyone ever been able to stall the inevitable? What do we do when the gods of good genes and good hair havenât exactly been to us? © Panorama Studios Well, it turns out, even though you may be losing hair strands in hundreds by the day, there are a few simple styling hacks that you should consider if youâre going bald. Just ensure that you have a word with your hairstylist or barber in the right way, and you should be golden. © iStock 1. Pick The Right Style © Instagram/kartikaaryan Hairstyles that have you keep the hair a little upright and not fall flat is something that you should be aiming for. Also, it helps if the hairstyle that you and your hairstylist pick work well with somewhat of a long hair. A quiff or a pompadour are great options, which, because of varieties and tons of personalisations that they can be combined with, would suit anybody. 2. Decide On The Length © Instagram/arjunkapoor Now, this is a little tricky. Ideally, your hair should be long enough for a dapper hairstyle, but not too long that you need a ton of products to keep it in place. Also, it should be short enough that you donât get it tangled, and messed up, because messy and tangled hair, causes a lot of breakages, thus increasing your chances of hair fall. 3. Ask For Good Hair Products That Suit You © iStock Instead of going for regular shampoos and conditioners, try going for the ones that make your hair more voluminous. Also, pick a product that actually works for you instead of just borrowing stuff from your siblings or partners. If you tend to shed a lot of hair, go for an anti-hair fall shampoo and conditioner, preferably from someone who have no chemicals such as alcohol or sulfates in their products. Ask your barber for a few recommendations or if your problem is severe, ask a dermatologist. 4. Accessories As A Last Resort © Instagram/varundvn This is a bit of a last resort. If your situation turns out to be like that of Ayushmann Khurrana in Bala. No, we arenât asking you to put on some vomit-inducing concoction on your head on a Tuesday and sleep facing the north-west or some idiotic thing that he does. Neither are we suggesting that you go for a wig or those spray-on hair solutions. Instead, go for some really fun and dapper accessories - a fedora, a newsboy cap, or a beanie - stuff thatâs really in vogue. View the full article
  6. In an ideal scenario, we would like to get ready for an office party at home. But that perfect scenario is hardly ever realistic. This is because most office parties are organised right after work and someplace near work so that work does not get compromised. In such a situation, especially if you don't have time to get ready for an office party, here's what you can do to get ready in no time and with literally zero effort. 1. Wash Your Face © Getty Images You can also carry a travel-sized perfume that you can spritz right before you step out. You just need to remember your pulse points: the wrist, the neck. These will make sure that the perfume stays on for a longer duration. 7. Add-In A Pair Of Sneakers View the full article
  7. Have you ever noticed how your perfumes never seem to last for more two-three hours and then it fades away quickly? While sometimes, it might be a soft scent, most of the time, it's how and where we apply the perfume. So, here's a guide to help you understand where you should be applying the perfume and make it last for hours so you smell really, really good 24/7. 1. Spray It On Your ClothesDonât just stick to spritzing scent over your body, instead spritz it all over the clothes too. Clothing fibres are able to hold in scents for a very long time, sometimes it sticks even after washing the fabric. 2. Don't Walk Into The ScentSome people spray perfume into the air and then walk through it because it is believed that this way the scent lasts longer. That's a myth. Youâll be wasting the product and the scent will evaporate quickly. A direct spritz on to the bare skin is enough for it to last. 3. Don't Forget The Ears © Getty Images While this might sound funny, the truth is that it actually works. Oilier skin holds the scent better, and the top of your ears is a good place to place the scent as they tend to stay a little oilier than your earlobes. 4. Donât Store Your Fragrances In Your BathroomWhile instinctively the bathroom is a good place to store the scent, unfortunately, heat, light, and humidity break down the perfume and lessen the quality and intensity of the fragrance. Instead, store your perfume bottles in a cool, dry place, like in your closet and away from windows. 5. Target Pulse Points When Spraying Perfume © Getty Images To make the fragrance last longer, you need to spritz on your pulse points. Pulse points are warm areas that help diffuse the fragrance across. Your pulse points on your body include: Your wristsInside your elbowsOn your neckBelow your midriffBehind your knees6. Rub Vaseline Or Unscented Lotion On FirstRub Vaseline or an unscented lotion on your pulse points before spraying your perfume to make the scent last longer. The formula in these will hold the fragrance to your skin longer than if you were to spray it onto dry skin. 7. Familiarise Yourself With Common Fragrance Terms © Getty Images Hereâs a breakdown of fragrance terms, so you know what youâre buying and what scent it'll give you over a period of time: Top Notes: The first scent you smell right after spraying the perfume, which fades quickly.Middle/Heart Notes: The scent that develops a while after the top note fades.Base Note: This is the heaviest scent that lingers the longest of the lot.

  9. Whether you grow a beard or not, there are times when you need to get your beard in shape. There are a few unfortunate souls among us, who, even if they tried to, cannot grow a proper beard and need to keep things clean. Others among us, have very strict workplace environments and dress codes that need to be adhered to. © iStock And then there are a few who simply don't like the idea of growing a beard and would much rather have smooth and non-prickly skin. No matter where we stand on this spectrum, most men at some point in their lives come across a situation where they need to shave their beards, be it in order to give it a shape, or just to clean it off. © iStock There's no denying this, as much as some guys hate shaving, there's no one on earth who enjoys a shaving experience that is all jagged, rough, and leaves your neck and cheeks all red and bloodied, and no matter what we do, we simply can't make our shaving experiences smooth enough. Or so you might think. Here are a few neat cheats and tricks that are actually super quick and require zero additional efforts that ensure a shaving experience that's smoother than cutting butter with a hot knife: © iStock 1. Warm Water © iStock Warm water helps your skin loosen up its pores and makes your shaving experience much smoother. It also helps by softening up the hair and the uppermost layer of the skin, which should make for a relatively smooth shaving experience. 2. Short Strokes © iStock If you keep your strokes long, your blades tend to collect more gunk, scum, hair and debris. Keep your strokes short and wash your blade in warm water in between strokes. That way, you will have a sharper and more effective blade do your bidding. 3. Fresh Blades © iStock Speaking of blades, always try to go for a fresh blade. Now, we know using a fresh cartridge every time you shave is not feasible, therefore, we suggest you store your razors, especially the open ones away from the bathroom, and in a dry place. 4. Exfoliate Before © iStock Most of the irritation that you face when you shave comes from the dirt and gunk that gets into the skin, as your blade removes the uppermost layer of the skin, along with the hair. It's always a good idea to take a warm shower before you shave, or at least, wash your face thoroughly, exfoliating vigorously, before shaving. 5. Use A Hair Conditioner © iStock This is a trick for those who tend to go a long time between shaves and normally are trying to shave their beards off. Massage your beard with a wet conditioner, and wash it off, just as you would do with your hair after shampooing. Once you're done, proceed with your regular shaving routine as you would. The conditioner softens up your skin and your beard, making things a lot easier. Trust us, these tricks, and a dope shaving kit, and you're all set. __ECOMPRODUCT__274__ View the full article
  10. Dandruff and winters go hand in hand. Sure, there are people who do not need to deal with this travesty as often as some others, but these people are clearly a minority. More often than not, you'll find that even the most well-groomed among men have to deal with this problem, once the temperature takes a dip. © Instagram/ranveersingh Now, as much as we would like to get rid of this problem once and for all, it's not actually possible. Some of the less fortunate among us have just been cursed with bad genes and bad skin, and it is people like us who have to deal with the worst manifestations of this issue. © iStock Now, you might want to consult a dermatologist if you have a severe condition and have dandruff throughout the year. Meanwhile, here are some easy, budget-friendly hacks that work well and limit how much of your scalp you actually shed. 1. Coconut Oil © iStock Time and again, we have said that coconut oil is God's gift to mankind. No matter what your skin ailment is, you can bet on coconut oil massages to at least alleviate the issue, if not remedy it completely. Simply heat up some coconut oil and massage it gently on your scalp. Don't get too rough with it, otherwise, you may disturb the flaky layers of your scalp and start shedding more. Coconut oil not only helps your scalp in retaining the right amount of moisture, it also helps in keeping the pH levels balanced. 2. Aloe Vera © iStock Aloe vera is again one of those naturally growing, versatile things that are easily found in every household. Now, they may not be a kitchen item technically, but they can be abundantly found around every residential area. Simply slice up an aloe vera leave and rub the sap that oozes out, gently on your scalp. The sap has a number of nutrients and elements that help in keeping the pH balance neutral. Plus, the sap acts as a great anti-oxidant for your skin. 3. Camphor © iStock Camphor works really well for your skin, during any given weather, more so during winters. Simply crush some camphor in your palms and rub them over your hair, and massage gently on your scalp. This not only gives the hair a nice sheen, it also protects it from the dryness of the air by locking the moisture in, right into the hair. 4. Using Clean Towels © iStock Just ask yourself, when was the last time you washed your towel. Ideally, you should be using a fresh towel every day. However, considering that we don't have the luxury to hire housekeepers who would treat us like guests at a hotel, try to wash your towel at least once every 3-4 days. And when you're drying your hair, pat your head gently with the towel instead of rubbing the towel on your head vigorously as if you are trying to light a fire with sticks. 5. Watch Your Bath Water © iStock Finally, keep a good eye on your water heating system that you draw your bathwater from. Ideally, you should not use water that's too hot - that just messes up your scalp, skin as well as hair. Try to wash your hair and head with lukewarm water even during winters. That way, your scalp will retain the right level of moisture and won't dry out. View the full article
  11. While growing a long mane, no guy thinks about the patchy beard. Some areas can have bald spots and unless it is a very big problem, everything can be dealt with. Uneven beard growth is due to issues like genetics, stress, lack of proper diet and exercise. When these things are not taken into consideration, chances of the sketchy beard are higher. Believe us, not everything is lost. Here are quick hacks on how to fix uneven growth and get a fuller beard, stat. 1. Grow It Long © istock You must have given up the moment your beard started looking a bit out of place. But if you are set to work the patchy beard out, it's worth that you wait for your hair to grow completely. Yes, it could be awkward and you would want to rip it off but just hold on for a while. If the patch falls in the middle of your cheek, trim with a low-grade clipper. You need to get creative and shave the gaps wisely to create a flattering face. 2. Make It Edgy © istock If luscious beard seems unattainable, work on your sideburns and neckline. If you trim them, chances of bare patches being visible are higher. What you need to do is place the clippers and razor the areas beneath Adam's apple. It gives an impression of an angular jawline. Try it out. 3. Treat Your Beard Right © istock Slapping moisturisers is not going to hide your patchy beard. Treat them with the utmost care by using an alcohol-free oil or beard balm. You should also use an exfoliator as it helps to get rid of the dead skin cells, aiding proper growth and fuller appearance. 4. Eat To Grow © istock There's no substitute for a better diet and a healthy lifestyle. Incorporating diet rich items like Vitamin B, Vitamin C and Omega 3 helps in hair nourishment. So if you are good with enhancing your diet routine more, stock and snack on healthy items as this help beard bald spots. 5. Shade The Lines © istock Sometimes beard bald spots can be unfixable and if you have tried all the above steps and nothing has changed, use a smarter trick. To counter this issue, experts suggest colouring in. Use an eyebrow pencil and wherever you see a spot, just colour it. Make sure it matches the shade of your beard. View the full article
  12. With the year and a decade coming to an end, we all have good enough reasons to party hard. Not that we've ever needed one to go all out as if there's no tomorrow. However, as much as we love to lose all inhibitions and drink like fish while ringing in the new year, nobody likes to deal with that nasty hangover that follows. © iStock Though, we bet, hangover is the least of your worries, considering the atrocity that your skin goes through. A hangover will heal within a day or two, even if you just lie in your bed, cursing the apes who discovered alcohol, and make a shallow new year's resolution that you'll never touch alcohol again. The havoc that those n number of tequila shots, and those endless cocktails wreak on your skin, though - well, that's a different story. © iStock Luckily, there are a few easy hacks that not only work well as quick and easy ways to deal with a hangover, they also double up as the best skincare routine, after a hard night of partying. Drink Loads Of Water © iStock This is a no brainer - alcohol, because of some witchcraft, dehydrates your body from within. Naturally, apart from a shot up liver, you also end up with unbelievably dry skin. The situation is even worse if your skin type is dry or combination skin. As soon as you wake up, drink as much water as you can. It also helps if you have been drinking water throughout the previous evening. Ideally, for every two drinks that you have, you should have had a glass of water. Throughout out the day after, you should try to finish off at least two litres of water. Water is the best way to go for a quick detox of the body. Load Up On Grease & Carbs © iStock If you wake up with a hangover, you are bound to feel nauseated and feel like puking your guts out. Just fight that urge, and load up on carbs. Also, it goes a long way if you have something greasy to eat. Get a plate full of biryani, or something fried. The greasier the better. This not only helps your body to process the alcohol faster, it also slows down the alcohol mixing in your bloodstream. In a way, it speeds up the process of curing the hangover. Moisturise Before & After © iStock Now, this has very little to do with curing a hangover, but trust us, your skin will be forever grateful if you moisturise properly. Try to do it before you hit the scene of the party as that is a great way to prepare your skin for the upcoming onslaught. Also, for the morning after the party, apply a healthy dose of moisturiser, especially under your eyes. If you have a moisturiser that is light and is refreshing, not only will it rejuvenate your skin faster, you'll also feel a lot better. Shower © iStock Once you get your senses back, don't just head for the bed. Take a hot shower first, as that helps you to clean off the external effects of alcohol a little quicker. Also, a hot shower after a hard night is anyway a cathartic experience, so the principle should work well here as well. In case you cannot afford to hit the sack and need to visit your parents in the morning, or worse, have to go to work, just stand under a cold shower for about 10 seconds. The cold shower will jolt up your system, and help you get through the day. Hit The Sack © iStock Finally, get a night of good, long sleep, for at least seven to eight hours. Your body anyway needs that rest on a regular day, but because of the adventures and revelling that you had been up to all night, it definitely needs more. It does help if you sleep on fresh sheets and a fresh set of clothes. Just ensure that you are all moisturised and hydrated before you hit the sack. That way, your internal systems will get plenty of time to work their magic as you sleep. View the full article
  13. If owning up your grey strands is not something you're up for just yet, it's okay (Just like it's totally cool to embrace a salt and pepper look). If you aren't ready yet to embrace the grey, you're going to have to do more than just dyeing your hair. Restoring your hair back to black is a whole process, and here's what you need to do to achieve that. © Getty Images 1. When Should You See A Professional Colourist? It's important to realise that a good professional colourist will give much better coverage than an at-home dye kit. Okay so, if you have a few strands here and there, then you could consider colouring your hair at home. There's no going wrong in that situation. However, if you have big patches of concentrated grey strands, then seeing a colourist becomes important. You don't want to colour-block yourself in an odd tone that looks completely off in comparison to your complexion. A colourist is going to balance the hair tone well in relation to your complexion. 2. If You're Dyeing Your Hair At Home You must remember that you've to keep it subtle and make sure that the dye is not something that'll look off on your face. In fact, investing in grey-hair targetting products is a much better option than other dyes as the grey strands are not porous and lack oil-levels, which means targetted products will exponentially work better. © Getty Images 3. Try A Colour Developer A colour developer is going to moisturise your hair strands root-deep and make them more receptive to the hair dyes. However, at the same time, it can compromise the quality of your hair strands. So, invest in a good developer that can protect your hair. 4. How Often Should You Touch Up? This really depends on how fast your roots start to show or whether or not the previous hair dye is fading. This isn't as expensive a process as when you're doing it at home, but it is more of a gamble. It might be best just to dye the roots and avoid recolouring the strands unless they're visibly dulling, in which case, you've to colour the entirety of your hair. View the full article
  14. Discolouration of the lips is something that most of us face because of reasons like pigmentation, pollution, dryness, flakiness and even smoking, for that matter. In, fact, there are also other secondary reasons like high consumption of tea, coffee, exposure to UV rays, licking your lips too often. So you know there's really no escaping pigmentation and dryness of the lips. However, if left unchecked, pigmentation can be visible on your face. This results in lips that appear to be darker than your skin tone. So here's how you can take care of this: 1. Skin Electrolytes Electrolytes made for the skin are in the form of calcium, potassium, and magnesium. These work together to help maintain the skin's optimal function, especially in maintaining hydration levels, which helps fight the pigmentation on the skin. They also help with issues like skin discolouration. You can try Tjori Chandana Sandalwood Face Gel. © Tjori 2. Beetroot Juice & Vaseline © Gettyimages The concoction of beetroot juice has lightening agents that can work its way around pigmented skin while vaseline can moisturise your skin. 3. Use A Lip Scrub © Gettyimages A lip scrub is going to help peel off the outmost layer of your lips and this will give way to the new skin inside that isn't going to be pigmented. This means that you can start afresh by taking care of your lips and skin. 4. Nix The Habit Of Licking Your Lips Wetting your lips with saliva is going to result in chapped lips. Saliva inherently is not moisturising, in fact, it dries out the lips and then further makes the layer of the skin appear darker. The simple solution is to just stop biting your lips.

  15. Just do a quick google search and you will come across a number of wellness guides and grooming routines that will make you look incredibly younger than you actually are. Sure, most of them do work, and when we say work, we mean work really well. However, invariably, you will come across n number of guides that say you need some product or the other. © MensXP But what if you don't want to spend a ton of money on grooming or skincare products? Well, even though you should, we can understand why someone would be a little sceptical of purchasing grooming products. That, however, does not mean that you can't get great skin. In fact, if you are tenacious enough, and have the will power of a monk who has vowed never to speak again, you can actually incorporate some habits that can make you look considerably younger than you actually are. We are talking about knocking 5-10 years off of your age. © Instagram/kartikaaryan 1. Get A Grip Over Your Smoking Habits © iStock This goes without saying, but if you smoke a pack every day for a year, you will start looking 50, at the age of 25. You need to cut back on your smoking if quitting altogether is not an option, although, there's really no excuse for not quitting. Try nicotine patches or nicotine gums, mild shock therapy or anything that works for you. Excessive or not, smoking ruins your skin, wreaks havoc on your hair, and even damages the white part of the eye, or sclera, giving it a yellowish hue. 2. Watch What You Eat © iStock This is something that seems very difficult to work on, but is actually, one of the easiest things that you can control. Have your meals at a specific set of time throughout a day, and seriously watch what you eat. We are not saying that you need to count your calories, but you need to watch what you eat. Having a balanced diet is key. Also, avoid fried and oily food as much as you can. You can also ditch those samosas and potato chips for healthier snacking options such as nuts, or a fruit. 3. Limit Your Alcohol Intake © iStock As much as we all love a nice and potent drink every now and then, going overboard and drinking your brains out is never a good idea. Alcohol takes a toll on your liver, which ultimately reflects on your skin and sclera. Furthermore, alcohol takes a long time to breakdown in your system so the ill effects stay for a long time. We're not asking you to give up drinking altogether, because first of all, it would be just daft, and secondly, life seems very dry and drab without alcohol, but don't turn into Captain Haddock, is all we're saying. 4. Drink Loads & Loads Of Water © iStock This is a drink that you can have loads of. Ideally, you should be drinking about two litres of water every day, so try to go through at least two bottles or 8-12 glasses daily. In case plain water is too boring for you, you can always have some fruit-infused, flavoured water, which you can even make at your home. Just chop up some fruits, and place it in a bottle, heat up some water and fill the bottles up, and let it cool down. You don't even need to heat the water really, that is just a way to speed up the process. Think of making some really kickass sangrias, but without the wine and spices. 5. Exercise Holds The Key © iStock This goes without saying, but exercising, especially ones that really work up your core muscles and strengthen your endurance, are great for your overall health. Just jog for a few minutes a day, and taking the stairs whenever you have the time and chance is actually a great way to start. Exercising is also a great way to rid your body of oxidants and impurities, which cleanses your skin and system from deep within. Furthermore, it improves the secretion of hormones and blood circulation by a mile, improving the overall functioning of your body. And did we say that it gets rid of that paunch you've been trying so hard to hide? 6. Dress Sharp © Instagram/arjunkapoor People often forget this, but dressing yourself in the right manner actually goes a long way in looking young. Your personal style is that one aspect that has the most drastic effect. You don't need to do a lot actually. Just ensure that you pick the right colours, silhouettes and that your clothes fit you well, and you're all set. Also, while you're at it, make friends with your tailor. Trust us, they will save some really screwed up days when the time comes. Just ask Barney Stinson. 7. Resting Is Equally Important © iStock Finally, and this is where almost everyone messes up big time, get proper rest. Although most medical associations say that we should be getting at least 8 hours of sleep, we know that in today's day and age, that's practically impossible, if we are to make something of ourselves. That being said, we do need to get 5-6 hours of sound sleep every single day. Not sleeping enough can cause your hair to fall out, bloodshot eyes, dark circles, puffed up under eyes, dry and lifeless looking skin. And these are just the external things that we are talking about. Imagine the havoc that it wreaks inside your body. One of the easiest ways to get the most out of your sleep is to ensure that you do not consume anything sweet or sugary at least an hour prior to hitting the bed, and that you simply switch off all your screens at least 30 mins before.

  16. Not that we men are averse to the idea of taking a bath every day during the winter, but can you really blame us if we skip showering every now and then when the mercury drops to five degrees Celsius? © iStock Don't we all just want to snug inside our cosy blankets and binge-watch movies and series on Netflix? Thought so. Unfortunately, such a blissful life is simply not possible, thanks to our hectic schedules. © iStock However, no matter how hard the going gets, we need to take a bath just so that we don't stink up our classrooms or office floor. Luckily, there are a few hacks that will not only allow you to skip a bath and still smell fresh and nice, but also help you deal with bad body odour at all times. Get Some Baby Wipes © iStock No matter what your grooming or skincare routine is, baby wipes are the single best investments you can make. Not only are they great to wipe off BB creams, spots of dirt and grime, they come in handy in all kinds of situations. As a rule of thumb, you should always keep a packet of wet wipes or baby wipes in your office drawer or college bag. Just take a few wet wipes to the washroom and clean your armpits from time to time. A baby wipe really comes in handy in such a situation. Not only does the antibacterial ointment keeps germs and bacteria at bay, it also helps you smell normal for an extended period of time. Get An Antiperspirant © iStock Once you have wiped your armpits with the baby wipes, apply some good antiperspirants. The best way to go forward is to use an antiperspirant that controls sweat. They usually work in two ways - either by not letting sweat reach the outer layer of the skin and secondly, by getting rid of the bacteria that is present on the skin. Follow this up with a good cologne and you are set. Apply Body Lotion Before A Cologne © MensXP Once you are done with the antiperspirant, apply some body lotion around your armpits. This way, when you put on cologne or deodorant, it stays on longer and does not need to be refreshed every now and then. Load Up On Cologne And Deodorants © iStock In case you don't have the tendency to sweat profusely, you can actually make do with a good deodorant or cologne. Again, this is one of those things that you should carry with yourself at all times, or at the very least, stow away in your office drawers. Just spray some of it on yourself as soon as you reach office and refresh it once during the day and you are all set. Leave-in Conditioners © iStock During the winter, everyone has a tendency to get some dandruff, mainly because the skin on the scalp becomes a little dry. This also means that if you don't wash your hair regularly, your hair may start smelling weird. One very effective way to avoid this is to wash your hair every day and dry it properly. However, if you don't want to do even that, just get some leave-in conditioners. Not only do they keep your hair looking tidy, they also make them smell good, and keep that awful stench away. Just make sure of one key thing - that you change all of your clothes every day. View the full article
  17. Let's not kid ourselves, most of us will look pretty horrible when we hit 60. Remember the internet going crazy over the age filter on FaceApp? Well, that was a scam beyond anything else, wasn't it? We are not even going to get into whether or not they used our images for some nefarious, big-brother-is-watching conspiracy. The fact that you'll have a full head of hair and not grow a paunch when you age, is just idiotic. © Instagram/abhilashatd However, there is one exception to all these old age woes who continues to be a glimmering beacon of hope for us - Anil Kapoor. The fact that the veteran actor seems to be ageing backwards is not a mystery to anyone who follows Bollywood, but what is indeed a mystery is how exactly has he managed to stop the ebb of time? © Instagram/abhilashatd The answer lies partly in how well he takes care of himself, and partly in how well he dresses. © Instagram/anilskapoor Be it a rather classy and sombre outfit such as this one, in a sleeveless Nehru jacket, and contrasting linen trousers, or the following, laid back, cool dude outfit with the black jacket and checked pants, it seems that there's nothing that Anil Kapoor doesn't look dapper in. © Instagram/anilskapoor There are a few clever styling tricks up his sleeve and that of his stylist, Abhilasha Devnani, which we believe should work for all of us mere mortals. Read on, and take note guys: 1. His Silhouettes © Instagram/abhilashatd One key way Anil Kapoor manages to look not a day over 30, despite being 62, is the fact he keeps himself abreast of all the latest trends and styles that are “in”. This means staying on top of what colours are in season, what prints are the flavour of the year, and most importantly, what silhouettes millenials find uber-cool. Take this co-ord set of monochrome jacket and joggers, for example. The jacket has a very minimal but pronounced industrial and technical vibe to it, thanks to the enlarged pockets and stripes on the outer seams. 2. His Selection of Footwear © Instagram/anilskapoor One area that men have to pay a little bit more attention if they want to come across as fashionable, are their shoes. Wearing a regular pair of sneakers or derby shoes just doesn't cut it. You need to take care of the silhouette, the construction, and in case of sneakers, the colour and the material as well. 3. Having Strong Basics © Instagram/abhilashatd Another factor that really works in his favour is how strong his basics are. Notice how he added a contrasting element using a very basic t-shirt, in what otherwise would have been a very basic, monochrome outfit. Monochrome or not, adding something that breaks a large singular block of colour is always a good idea. It can be anything, a belt, a shirt, or even a small emblem or a brooch, a monochrome outfit always needs something to break the otherwise monotone look. 4. Knowing What Works For Him & What Doesn't © Instagram/anilskapoor A buttoned-up kurta sure has its moments but for the larger a part, it makes for a very basic and rather drab outfit. Sure, you can throw in a really nice pair of oxfords to mitigate the damage, but unless your kurta has a really impressive embroidery or a print, it won't go a long way. In such a scenario, simply throwing on a properly fitting classic coat does the trick and really make the ensemble pop. 5. The Way He Goes Against The Norm © Instagram/yogenshah_s We have often said that while travelling, you should dress minimalistically, and make your life, as well of those behind you in the security check, a whole lot easier. That being said, if you can really pull off something like this, full marks to you, sir. In a day and age where everyone is huddling to the airports in jeans, joggers and tracksuits, it's actually very refreshing to see someone bring class to an airport outfit like this.

  18. Summers have passed and if you are assuming that the same grooming rules can be taken forward for winters as well, you are highly mistaken. You will have to swap your summer routine and utilise certain other grooming hacks during the bleak months. From using the right type of sunscreen (Yes, sunscreen) to keeping your face fresh this season, here are five grooming hacks you need to say yes to before winter hits. 1. Shave Post Your Shower Session © iStock Getting a shave before you go for a shower may seem like a good plan because you would save some time, but in a real scenario, especially during winters, you need to up your grooming game a little bit. Your pores will be softer if you shave post your shower. Go with the grain and you will be good to go for the season! 2. Use A Sunscreen © iStock Your skin will thank you if you use a sunscreen even in winters. At any point in time, the UV rays still show their wrath through fog or rains which ultimately leads to skin disasters. For you to not compromise and have a healthy mug, all year long, keep a small bottle of SPF 30 sunscreen handy with you. It will nourish and shield your skin and protect you from the nasty sun. 3. Dandruff Will Be A Big Deal © iStock One of the many negatives of winters is the fact that dandruff becomes a part and parcel of your life. Your scalp will be vulnerable in the cold and it will instantly dry out. There's a way to get rid of the unwanted flakes and it's by using an anti-dandruff shampoo and not using it every day, like you would in summers. Remember to wash it thrice a week and use a conditioner post shampooing, once a week. 4. Wash Your Face Before You Head To Bed © iStock Heading to bed with a clean face and body is very important. The wonders this method can do to your skin the next day is unmissable. Start with splashing some cold water on your face and use a face wash which is mild and made with natural ingredients. Avoid moisturising at night as this will give some space to your skin to breath. 5. If You Have A Beard, Use A Balm © iStock Beard balm adds an extra dose of moisture to your beard and seals the wax. Not just that, it also helps in shaping your beard and moustache and puts together your whole look. It's one of the best remedies during winters. 6. Exfoliation Is The Key © iStock Dry skin will be a bigger problem in winters and you will find yourself scratching more often. It's not the sweater but actually your grooming routine. Swap out your normal bar soap and say yes to a heavy-duty exfoliator. It will help you get rid of dead skin cells, improving the blood circulation in your skin and repair the damage. 7. Never Forget To Carry Your Lip Balm © iStock Your lips will turn dry and chappy in winters and since this is the thinnest skin on your entire body it is important that you keep it protected. Carry a small chapstick with you and use it whenever your lips start feeling dry. View the full article
  19. We all have faced the ugly wrath of pollution, especially during Diwali. And no matter how many times ever you try to keep your hair neat, it ends up looking unkempt after a point of time. Proper care is a must during and after Diwali and it's necessary that you take extra measures for that. Here are 5 simple ways you can protect your hair: 1. Keep A Short Routine Ready Pollution can leave your scalp dry and so you need a basic routine in place. The best way to battle this is by keeping a mild cleanser ready for your hair that's made with natural ingredients and steers clear of sulfate. Plus, a hot oil massage also goes a long way. This routine is a perfect fit for your hair. __ECOMPRODUCT__249__ 2. Don't Skip The Conditioner A hair care routine is incomplete without a conditioner. It takes care of the moisture quotient in your hair and doesn't make your hair oily. Take a dime-sized amount and apply it all over your hair, leaving the scalp region. Wash it off after 2-4 minutes. This method helps maintain the natural nutrients of your hair. © iStock 3. A Champi Is A Must Champi prepares you from the ugly wrath of pollution during Diwali. You can get a hair massage at home or to go to a salon. Oils like Bringaraj and Hibiscus are known to have medicinal properties. Apply the oil directly on the scalp and massage it. Make this a part of your routine and shield your hair from the pollutants. © iStock 4. Take A Steam Post-Diwali, one of the best remedies you can try out for your hair is taking steam. A weekly steam bath can easily replenish the lost moisture for your hair and any deep-rooted particles stuck in your hair. Take a hot towel and wrap it around your hair for a while. The results are unbeatable! © iStock 5. Use Aloe Vera As A After Remedy Aloe vera gel is a universally accepted solution for a grooming routine and is quite a useful remedy post Diwali. Then be it skincare or haircare, this method goes a long way. Take aloe vera gel and add a few drops of tea tree oil to it. Apply it directly on your scalp and wash it off after a while. This will restore the strength of your hair. © iStock
  20. One of the oldest and most common skin concerns for men that still is a pain to deal with has to be acne. As a skin concern, acne is very common among men of all ages. © iStock As natural as the phenomenon may be, people often tend to make fun of those suffering from it. For preteen and adolescent boys, acne may stem from changing hormones after a certain age. However, for men beyond a certain age, acne can be caused by some seriously flawed habits. And yes, smoking is just one of them. © iStock Your Skincare Products Or Not Using Them © iStock One major cause of untimely acne is the fact that most men don't buy skincare products based on the type of skin they have. That is assuming they use basic skincare products at all. Not only is using the wrong kind pointless, it can also be downright detrimental for your skin. Pro Tip: Get your skin tested if you have severe acne or regular breakouts and use skin products that suit your skin. Avoid using products that have a high concentration of sulphates and parabens. Your Diet © iStock No thanks to our hectic schedules and overworked lifestyles, most of us rely on food that can be downed in a jiffy, and needs little to no effort from us to consume. Not only are these foods high on oil content, they are also laced with preservatives and taste enhancers which wreak havoc on your skin. There are a lot of us who ignore minor allergic reactions to certain kinds of foods and simply gorge on them. A medical study released in 2013 stated that almost 60% of Indians don't realise that they suffer from a mild case of lactose intolerance. Pro Tip: Get yourself tested if you see that your skin misbehaves when you have certain kinds of food. Also, try to avoid oily and precooked food as much as you can, as they tend to have the most devastating effects on your gut, overall health and skin. Your Hygiene © iStock As obvious as this may seem, you need to stay hygienic. Take bathing for instance. You need to take a proper shower every day, no matter what the weather. So think twice before avoiding that bath this winter. Also, consider switching to a shower gel or something like that. A bar of soap just does not cut it anymore. There are other things to consider as well. How often you cut your nails, whether or not you get your nails cleaned, the products you use for your clothes. Take note of the way your skin reacts whenever you change something in your routine. Pro Tip: As we said, take note of how your skin responds to changes. Also, don't skip basic routines and don't shy away from changing products if you need to. Your Supplements © iStock This holds true especially if you are a muscle buff, work out at the gym and consume supplements. Most supplements are harmless, but there are a few that do not suit everybody. Try switching off of your supplements if you have persistent acne. If it starts disappearing, you have your culprit. Pro Tip: If it is indeed your supplements that are causing the issue, switch to something that suits you. Have a word with your trainer or dietician, and consult them for a substitute. Your Hair Products © iStock This may come across as a surprise, but your hair products do affect your skin, especially around your face. If you use a strong anti-dandruff shampoo, or a specific oil or mousse, and find yourself have breakouts often, it's time to switch. Pro Tip: Try going for products that are chemical-free, and have a natural cleansing agent, in case it is your shampoo. For other hair products, try to go for organic and vegan ones as they are the least likely to have adverse effects. Also, take note if your hair product has paraben, or sulfate. If it does, it's out.

  23. If excessive sweating is what you face every day, we have your back. Anyone who sweats excessively tends to fret over sweat stains. We get it that it's a struggle, especially in this scorching heat. Not only does it affect your look, but also hampers your confidence level. Don't let it affect you in any way. Check out these fashion hacks for your wardrobe to keep the stench away, forever: © Facebook 1. Choose The Right Colours It seems like an excellent idea to wear light colours in this hot weather, but tbh, they don't do a great job at hiding those sweat stains. Light colours like white, grey or beige grab all the attention, but dark navy blue, black or brown will work out for you. © Getty Images 2. Opt For An Absorbent T-Shirt Worried about sweating through your entire look? Absorbent t-shirts are the exact summer saviours you were looking for. Yes, they can be worn underneath and are a sure shot way to keep the stains miles away! 3. Use Natural Fibers For Summers Instead of opting for nylon or polyester shirts, splurge on cotton or linen. They are a safe haven for men who sweat a lot. Natural fibers go a long way and are bound to make you feel less sweaty. Keep this suggestion in mind so you never mess up in an interview or on a date night! © Getty Images 4. Sweat Pads For The Win In case, you sweat a lot from your armpits, sweat pads are the fix you need. You can either stick them on your shirts or wear them directly with clean-shaven armpits. © Getty Images 5. Fix The Stains We all are aware of the disastrous stink of armpits. The sweaty patches tend to stick by for a longer period of time. Next time, before you throw your t-shirt to wash, apply a dab of lemon juice on the stain to eliminate the marks completely and stay fresh all summer long. © Getty Images 6. Opt For A Good Pair Of Shoes Sweaty feet invite trouble, not just for yourself, but also for the people around you. Let your feet breathe in this weather. Steer clear of canvas or plastic shoes and keep your feet rejuvenated at all hours. Wear cotton socks with lightweight formal shoes, sneakers. © Getty Images 7. Ditch Your Backpack Backpacks are your enemy as the sweat gates open up. They also weigh you down due to the whole world stowed in it. Keep yourself cool with messenger bags to lower down the burden on your back, thus lessening the chances of sweat stains. © Getty Images
  24. There are a number of reasons why man boobs occur and no matter the cause, the effect of this one is quite dreadful. We get it and we are with you! So, why does this happen? Due to multiple factors like obesity and hormone imbalance known as Gynecomastia, man boobs draw unwanted attention. With certain changes made to your wardrobe, from sturdy woven fabrics to wearing darker colours, our clever fashion hacks pave the path for sartorial style: 1. Look For What Fits You The Best © Getty Images When I say fit, I am trying to convey that avoid choosing extremes sides. Anything which is either too fitted or too loose will draw in attention. Aim at getting the right type of fabric. If need be, get a style that's a size up and customise the shoulders and waist as per your specifications. This fashion hack is your best bet. Try it out! 2. Choosing The Right Style © Getty Images Shirts are a better choice, as they have an undeniable structure that's ideal to conceal man boobs. A denser fabric shirt in twill, oxford and flannelette shirts will add up to your style suaveness. Opt for dark coloured shirts in black, grey or charcoal shade as they eliminate the tell-tale lines. We aren't saying your wardrobe should be filled with darker hues, as you can also experiment with pastel colours as well. 3. White Is A No No © Getty Images White shirts are more likely to draw unnecessary attention than shirts in darker tones. Avoid wearing low necklines, accessories like chains to steer clear of inadvertent looks. Choosing the right fabric and colours in your style statement will do the trick and add a perfect spin to your outfit. 4. It's All In The Details © Getty Images Pockets can either work wonders or fail your look completely. Whatever style you choose, make sure the pockets are not too detailed. We suggest you opt for smaller patterns like darker plaids or black checks instead. Believe us, this could be your new signature look! 5. Pin The Pinstripes © Getty Images Most suits have the charm to lend you a streamlined profile automatically with their sharp silhouette. They create a vertical line which is exactly what you need to deftly distract the attention. To give a new edge to your look, choose narrow pinstripes. Ditch large patterns for a good, fashion etiquette. 6. Accessorising © Getty Images Deck yourself with accent pieces as they can instantly divert the eyes. Put briefcases, stylish eyewear or two-toned shoes to your advantage as they are a great way to spiff up your look.
