  1. It's that day of the week again when you have to take a razor and shave your facial hair, but it frightens you because your skin is prone to redness and rashes. Sensitive skin needs extra attention and to tell you the truth, there's no hard and fast rule for sensitive skin but our tips can significantly nix the odds of irritation. Begin here and now: 1. Pre-Shave Techniques © Getty Images Before you even touch your blade, there are some pre-shaving techniques that you need to consider. Use a mild face wash that can clear the dirt and debris off your face. It reduces the chances of skin irritation post-shaving. Make sure it's not a drying face wash. 2. Exfoliation © Getty Images Scrubbing doesn't mean you go harsh on your face. Using an exfoliator works wonders and eliminates dead skin cells. Prep your skin for the best possible shave. 3. Shaving Cream © Getty Images The type of shaving cream would differ than the usual choice for your skin. Avoid creams that lather as they can dry out your skin, leading to itchy skin. Instead, use a lotion-based cream and save yourself from razor burns later! 4. Quality Razor © Getty Images Since your skin is sensitive, it's a given that you need to use a quality razor. In case you are a frequent user of a disposable razor, make sure you replace it often as the cartridges tend to grow bacteria. If it's overused, it can lead to skin irritation and razor burn. 5. Using An Aftershave © Getty Images An aftershave has always been an essential of the grooming arsenal, but for sensitive skin, the type needs to be smoother. A lotion-based aftershave or an aftershave balm is a must-have for you. Avoid using menthol or alcohol-based aftershave, as it can deplete the skin's defensive barrier. Make moisturising a priority to keep your skin hydrated. A little goes a long way!
  2. Oily skin can come across as something that's hateful, especially for men, who naturally have an oily texture. But, tbh, oily skin is just over production of oil glands called 'sebum' which means higher visibility of shine on your face. Yes, it can lead to acne, but this skin type is less prone to wrinkles and premature ageing. Strike that balance in your skin and still have a youthful mug with our 5 steps grooming guide to combat oily skin. 1. Stick To A Face Wash Made For Your Skin Type © Getty Images Every face wash available in the market has its own pros and cons. Since you have an oily texture, a gentle face wash that prevents acne burst out and oil build up should be added to your grooming arsenal, stat. Use it twice a day for best results. 2. Exfoliation Is Important © Getty Images A face wash has an ability to remove the oil and grime, but an exfoliator or scrub goes deeper. Take this remedy into consideration as it's a well known therapy for acne prone skin and controls further damage. Use a natural scrub every alternate day. Check where the oil gets accumulated and gently massage your face with it. 3. Use A Toner © Getty Images A toner is not gender biased and is equally important for men as well. And, believe us, it's about to be your favourite grooming mate. So, how does it work? It minimises your pores and also steers clear of inflammation. It's a refresher for your skin that cuts back the excess secretion of oil. Apply a toner after washing your face, followed by a moisturiser. 4. Home Remedy Using Buttermilk © Getty Images Some home remedies can do wonders for your oily skin. Dip a cotton ball in buttermilk and massage your face with it, at least three times a week. Leave it on for a few minutes. The acid present in the buttermilk is an ideal cleanser to tighten your pores. 5. Moisturisation © Getty Images Firstly, oil and hydration are two different things. Not using a moisturiser only means your surface will dry up, leading to acne. Instead, use an oil-free moisturiser that minimises extra oil production and shields your skin against pollutants. One last tip, don't overdo any of the steps mentioned above. A hyper-intense regimen will throw everything out of place and leave you with worsened skin. Remember to keep it simple and gentle!

Wash your beard with a medicated shampoo to make sure you rule out minor infections etc, while cleaning your beard thoroughly. 2. Use a beard conditioner © Getty Images You know the root cause of dandruff? Dryness. If your beard strands are dry, they make sure the skin underneath is dry and lifeless as well. To counter that, make sure you use a beard conditioner regularly, especially every time you shampoo your beard. 3. Brush/Comb your beard regularly © Getty Images How do you get rid of flaky, dry skin underneath your beard? You brush/comb your beard religiously. It's as simple as that. 4. Use a beard oil © Getty Images A beard oil will not just keep your beard nice, shiny, and healthy, it will also make sure that the skin underneath the beard is deep conditioned and moisturized, while giving it the nourishment it requires.

  5. Beating the heat can be really tough, especially when you know that the second you will step out of the house, you'll face the harsh heat. In this weather, breathing is a task. Surviving through the day is like surviving a long drawn out battle. But understand this, taking care of yourself, like wearing the right clothes and carrying water is crucial, however, taking care of your skin is equally important. The hot Summer winds can leave a deep tan on your face. They can even leave your hair brittle and dry and in the worst case scenario, an allergy that might need medical attention if your work involves long hours under the harsh rays of the sun. So, here are some products that you most definitely should apply before stepping out of the house: 1. Prep Your Skin With Sunscreen © nykaa Start by taking some sunscreen and dabbing it gently all over your face. A regular work week means long hours of exposure under the sun which means you need to prep your skin with sunscreen to save your face from the exposure of the harmful UV rays. A good SPF doesn't just prevent a burn or a tan but saves you from toxic UV that is known to cause skin cancer. Also, remember to use the sunscreen thirty minutes before you step out in the sun for maximum effect. 2. Carry A Balm Stick With You © nykaa The harsh rays of the sun don't just affect your skin. They also affect your lips. And if you don't take proper care of your lips, you might end up with chapped lips that look unattractive and unhealthy. To nix that, carry a lip balm that you can use whenever you feel dryness. 3. A Face Mist/ Face Wipes © nykaa © nykaa After long hours outside, if you find yourself, sweating profusely use a face mist or face wipes. It's not practical to constantly find a washroom to wash your face in situations like these. A face mist or wipes do the job and freshen up your face in seconds. 4. A Good Moisturizer © nykaa It's important to not just moisturize your face before stepping out in the sun but also your entire body or at least the parts that will be exposed in the sun. This will help fight the dryness. Keep your arms, elbows, knees, feet etcetra moisturized.
  6. 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
  7. Just like planning out your Holi party is on the top of your list of priorities right now, taking care of your skin is equally important. Holi colours can leave a deep hue on your face for days post-Holi. They can even leave your hair brittle and dry and in the worst case scenario, an allergy that might need medical attention. So, here are some products that you shouldn't leave your house without applying before having fun with colours: 1. Prepping Your Skin With Sunscreen Start by taking some sunscreen and dabbing it gently all over your face. Holi parties mean long hours of exposure under the sun which means you need to prep your skin with sunscreen to save your face from the exposure of the harmful UV rays. © Getty images 2. Lots Of Oil For a festival like Holi, It's best to lather your entire body and hair with a thick layer of oil. We recommend sesame oil and coconut oil but you can also apply any other effective oil that you're comfortable with. This additional layer acts as a barrier against all the strong colours and prevents them from seeping into your skin by preventing direct contact. © Getty images 3. Heavy Duty Balms Heavy duty balms like Vaseline add an extra layer of protection for your lips and for your face. If you have sensitive skin, you should definitely not step out of your house without wearing a heavy duty lip balm. © Getty images 4. Face Moisturizer Face moisturizers may seem inconsequential for this, but it's not. Your face always needs a good moisturizer to guard you against pimples, blisters, and other scars. However, use the moisturizer ten minutes after sunscreen so that everything blends in seamlessly. © Getty images

  12. Majority of Indians residing within the geographic coordinates that map out the boundary of the subcontinent, fall under the category of medium to dark wheatish or “olive” skin tone. By most “English” or Western standards, we are the perfect specimen of “brown people”. While such demographic segregation and racism prevalent in the West aren't new to Indians, there is a painful truth to be experienced in the kind of off-handed racism that is practised within India, by Indians and for Indians. © Instagram The Indian subcontinent's collective blind love for the “fairer ones” is something all of us are aware of. For ages now, Indians have drooled over and craved for the lighter shades of skin tone one might find on those shade scales they proudly show off in TV commercials. However, while Indian women have had to suffer from and live under the constant scrutiny of old hags nagging them and lamenting over their “dark skin” colour for ages, they found solace in their grandmother's home remedies, that promised to lighten their skin and make them “look more desirable” as per the requirements of the Indian marriage market. © Instagram Enter commercialisation, and the home remedies were quickly replaced by magical tubes of modernised (albeit chemically formulated) “ubtan” recipes that had made their way to fancy fairness creams and lotions that thrived on women's insecurities and constant pressure to match up to the (unrealistic and cruel) social standards of beauty. The “fairness” furthering business opened a gold mine of money making opportunity that these fairness cream companies exploited for years. But things took a new turn when they made a discovery that would forever change how we saw the fairness cream industry. © Instagram Until the mid-2000s shaving creams and deodorants were the primary grooming products that were sold to men through commercial ads. However, the market study showed there was a solid opportunity of expanding men's grooming range, and soon, fairness products for men were launched. Dheeraj Sinha, chief strategy officer at Leo Burnett told QZ India that, “The men's fairness segment came about because almost one-third of users of women's fairness creams were men.” Even a Vice News report aired on HBO stated that around 60% of women and 10% of men say they use fairness products. © Instagram This led to a boom in the men's skin-care industry and as of 2017 the market grew by 40% and the industry was said to be worth around rupees 5,000 crores. That's not all, a 2015 research study by Nielsen showed that men got into the bandwagon because they believed that a fair complexion could improve their professional prospects. This only confirms that the “idea” of fair as handsome is both personal and is slowly making its way into people's reflection of themselves professionally. Yet, there also exist a lot of aware men who realise that companies are feeding on people's insecurities to cash in on more money and jump the success ladder. Bollywood actors such as Nandita Das, Kangana Ranaut and more recently Abhay Deol, have joined in to call out such companies and their products, and even fellow actors who endorse such brands and their skin whitening products. © Instagram However, since awareness is growing by the day, and more men (and women) continue to realise that they are being fooled by these companies and their products, brands are coming up with more cunning ways of selling their products to consumers. According to Sinha, “My sense is that brands will wake up to the new reality, and you will see propositions reworked around clearer skin (and) glow, rather than pure fairness,” and honestly we have already seen that happening lately. © Instagram It's disheartening to see how society's idea of “normal” and “beautiful” can disrupt people's perception of themselves, wherein they come to think of themselves as inferior to someone, merely because their skin is a shade or two darker than that of others around them. We often hear women say “love and accept yourself for who and how you are” and we hope men also follow this thumb rule and come to take pride in what has been given to them at birth. Trust us, women love that in a man, the ability to be comfortable and confident in their own skin.
  13. If you don't have the perfect Instagram skin like the Kardashians because, hello IRL dirt, sweat and 28347 other factors that lead to pimples, scars, blackheads, whiteheads, open pores and a million other problems, then you might want to read this. Apart from stuff that requires an actual effort like having a fixed beauty regime in place: buying products, not having it get shrouded by dust on a bookshelf but actually using them, home remedies that sound exciting but no one gets around to executing them, because life. You could also choose the simpler path of taking care of your skin by way eating yummy foods that boost the skin cells for healthier and glowing skin. But here's the good news, there are certain yummy foods out there that you can put inside your belly that builds your natural immunity against the bacterial infestations that lead to pimples and other gross pop-outs. The best part is that it also fights against the probability of getting skin cancer. First of all, know the thumb rule of sugar: foods high in sugar are especially highly detrimental for the health of your skin, however, some skin-friendly foods might also surprise you for example chocolate and red wine (when consumed in moderation, duh there was obviously going to be a catch!) So aside, from a beauty regime that you should have in place, here are foods you should have that catalyze the process of getting skin brighter than the sun: 1. Salmon © Getty Images The ray-finned fish, Salmon gets its pink colour from a carotenoid called astaxanthin, which by the way is regarded with the prestigious label of 'nature's most potent antioxidant'. Astaxanthin is, in fact, more potent than Vitamins C and E, and also helps encourage build up of collagen and minimizes damage like wrinkles and blisters from the harsh rays of the sun. 2. Green Tea © Getty Images The natural ingredient has polyphenols and catechins which improve skin's elasticity and help protect against sun damage. Green tea is also a powerful fighter against skin cancer. 3. Blueberries © Getty Images Blueberries get the blue colour from being rich in a powerful antioxidant called anthocyanins. They're also super rich in vitamins A, C, and E, and together they encourage skin tightness and firmness. 4. Kale © Getty Images Kale is regarded as a superfood, Because of its richness in the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin. A strong antioxidant, it helps minimize UV damage. It's is also rich in Vitamins A and C, all of these are good at boosting collagen. 5. Carrots © Getty Images Carrots are super rich in beta-carotene, and also can add a healthy radiance on the skin if consumed in the right amount. Too much, however, can result in an orange hue on your face. 6. Tomatoes © Getty Images The tomato paste from boiled tomatoes is rich in lycopene: the antioxidant that benefits prostate. Coming to the skin, it helps build immunity against sun protection. 7. Olive Oil © Getty Images Olive oil has good things like: monounsaturated fat (the good fat) and antioxidant polyphenols to protect against the smog, smoke, and the sun. So, replace the vegetable oil with something that'll be good for your skin. 8. Rosemary © Getty Images Rosemary is a great herb to use on your skin: rich in antioxidants, the herb when used frequently in your meals has been shown to decrease melanoma (skin-cancer) risk. 9. Red Wine © Getty Images This pointer might get you jumping with excitement. The red wine is rich in resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant with anti-cancer properties and pro-collagen effects on the skin which is always a plus. 10. Dark Chocolate © Getty Images Dark chocolate is known to be rich in cocoa flavanols, which has been proven to have helped with making the skin smooth. Make sure that you're picking a 70-per cent dark chocolate blend or higher. But consuming too much is a bad idea.
  14. 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. Due to pollution and dust, our pores get clogged with oil and dead skin cells, the result is blackheads. Blackheads are more commonly spotted on the nose and the chin since these pores tend to be more oily and larger than the others on your face. So, how to get rid of these blackheads? You can blow up your money by getting a facial or you can invest in practical solutions easy and keep blackheads at bay. Take a look: 1. Go For A Face Wash With Salicylic Acid Use a face wash with salicylic acid and eliminate a physical exfoliator. Since salicylic acid is a chemical exfoliator, it doesn't scrub away dead skin cells but dissolves them. So, switch to a facial cleanser that hydrates your skin and gets rid of blackheads. Go for: Ustraa face wash © Amazon Price: Rs. 250 Buy it here 2. Try Peel-Off Masks If you've seen videos of men and women trying black peel-off masks and wondered if it actually works, we have the answer for you. Yes, it does. Activated charcoal has properties that pull out all impurities like dirt, oil and toxin from your skin. It's an active ingredient in men's grooming products and the ultimate key to flawless male beauty. Bonus: pulling off a mask from the skin is oddly satisfying, according to the internet at least. Go for: Beardo Activated Charcoal Peel-Off Mask © Amazon Price: Rs. 350 Buy it here 3. Baking Soda + Water = Magic If you don't wish to spend money on products, there are treatments that can be done from the comfort of your home. If you thought baking soda was just for baking cakes, you're mistaken. Baking soda has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties which get rid of dead cells and maintains the skin's pH while absorbing excess oil and unclogs the pores. © healthline Take 1 tablespoon of baking soda and mix it with 1 tablespoon of water and apply on your face or on the affected area. The key is to gently massage your face for 2-3 minutes and wash it off. Repeat it 2-3 times in a week and get a glowing, smooth and clear skin. There may be some redness so apply aloe-vera gel where the skin gets irritated. 4. Facial Serums To The Rescue They say prevention is better than cure.

Go Organic If you're a fan of natural cleansers, you don't always need to spend on brands that promote organic skincare.

Apply the mixture to the affected area and gently massage it for 3-5 minutes. Rinse it off after 10-15 minutes. Repeat the process 2-3 times a week and your skin should be blackhead free! Adapt these instant and practical solutions and bid adieu to blackheads!
  15. Men applying makeup and even teaching others via YouTube tutorials is super common nowadays. 2019 is all about breaking gender barriers and embracing our bodies for what they are. Makeup is unisex now and male beauty is all the rage. We're not asking you to go do a full-blown makeup look, but covering up imperfections which are kind of necessary. But unlike other makeup products, concealer is applied only where you need it, masking flaws with a thin layer of color. Concealer can be your saving grace to cover up a nasty razor burn, ( ) acne or even a hickey from some unsolicited action. Here are 4 reasons why a concealer is the ultimate solution to achieve flawless skin: 1. Hide Dark Circles © Getty Images A layer of dark hue beneath your eyes is a telltale sign of numerous late nights resulting in sleep deprivation. Although there are other solutions for it, if you need a quick cover-up we've got your back. Dab a small spot of color correction and follow up with a drop of concealer that's one shade lighter to your skin tone. Gently dab the product into the corners of your eyes near the nose, as well as under the eyes using your finger. 2. Cover Up Hickeys © Getty Images It's all fun and games until you have a red fire-alarm or purple bruise-like hickey on your skin. Just wearing a turtleneck for 5 days in hope of saving face might do the trick temporarily, but if it's summertime, you will need a new trick to save face. Enter the concealer. Find a concealer that matches your neck (use a color corrector if the bruise is too dark) and blend it in. Keep the product handy, because of course, it'll happen again. 3. Conceal Razor Burns & Blemishes © Getty Images Razor burns are nasty, itchy and look bad. Contrary to dark circles, razor burns need to be covered up with the concealer shade that matches your skin tone perfectly. Blend the concealer evenly across the burn to make sure it is concealed well. The same process applies to covering up blemishes as well. It's better to use products that contain Vitamin E to reduce inflammation. 4. Mask Pimples Out Of Sight © Getty Images Imagine getting an annoying little popper on your face just hours before a date or an event. That is one way to spoil your first impression. The solution? Slap on a dab of concealer, and you're good to go. Yes, it's that easy. Just go a little light with the product and the coverage is always buildable. Bye, acne. Male beauty is trending and now you know why a concealer in hand is the stairway to glowing and flawless looking skin.

  18. If dry skin constantly troubles you no matter how much you moisturize and have a regular skin routine in place, it's probably because of other factors like your stubborn skin type and harsh weather conditions. However, lucky for you, it is easily fixable. Here is a list of things you can do to tackle the problem of stubborn dry skin, so you never have those icky cracks breaking out in the middle of your skin surface: 1. Take Shorter, Spaced Out Showers In the Winter, long, hot showers might sound enticing, but they have a negative impact on your skin: hot water reduces the skin's moisture and further removes the natural oil in your skin that is responsible for making your skin stay soft and smooth. So, if you really want to commit to getting better skin, you need to try lowering the temperature a few notches. Secondly, limit your showers to one a day, especially in the Winter when the dry air is already harming your skin by making it dry. 2. Use Other Moisturizing Products Too © Getty Images Your grooming routine would at least comprise of soap, body wash, and body cleanser. Make sure you replace them with products that promise to hydrate your skin and lock in the moisture. 3. Moisturize Everywhere © Getty Images Hydration is not only necessary for the face and hands. You should hydrate your entire body, from your face to your feet. 4. Switch To Balms In The Winter © Getty Images Having a moisturizing routine in the Winter is great but if it's not working well for your skin in keeping it hydrated, it's time you switch up things a bit. Balms usually work better than moisturizer as there are more chances of the goodness to seep into your skin with a moisturizer instead of a cream. Petroleum jelly is also a good option. 5. If You Use The Heater Frequently In The Winter, You Also Need To: Add water in the room. Heaters tend to make the skin dry and scarred. Adding water in a bowl and or starting the steamer in one corner keeps the humidity in check. Don't forget to shut the door so the moisture stays put in the room.
  19. All grooming products come with an expiry date which means you'll have to dump them at some point. With weather conditions like that of India's, it's likely that the expensive products you buy will get spoiled well before their expiry date. That's the worst scenario you could imagine, however, there is a preventive measure that you can take from stopping your grooming products from spoiling like storing them in the fridge. Besides lasting longer, they will even feel better on your skin. Here are four products that you should be storing in the fridge: 1. Fumes © idiva Without a doubt, you should be storing your fumes inside of the fridge. The heat and humidity degrade the quality of the fume. 2. Eye Cream © innisfree green tea seed eye cream Firstly, if you don't have an eye cream, get one. Especially if you don't want racoon eyes for the rest of your life. Secondly, put that in the fridge. Besides, a chilled out eye cream works better in soothing and de-bloating your blood vessels under the eye. 3. Beard Oil © prospector They tend to become a little runny in the Summer heat. Shove them in the fridge for uniform consistency. Also, the emollients degrade when they come in contact with the UV rays. 4. Toner/Moisturizer © Dove Again, just for the immediate benefit of how it would feel on your skin in its chilled glory. But in case you're using organic products, they anyway shouldn't be outside.

  25. Imagine having the perfect skin for meetings, date nights, and other events without the hassle of make-up. That's something we all want, but for every big night, there is that one blemish or an awkward pimple that tends to stick out and is always at the back of your head. What if people are only focusing on that one disappointment? But here's a little secret that can help you not have these tiny pimples/ blemishes on your face ever again. The key to good skin is consistent care. You need to set a routine in place that rules out the possibility of bacterial infestations that cause pimples. 1. Face Wash © Amazon Invest in a good men's facial cleanser with mild foaming properties that dissolve the residue oils and dirt in the pores of your skin and rids skin of impurities. Make sure the cleanser has a good amount of salicylic acid which helps get rid of acne by preventing any bacterial growth of any form. We recommend: Garnier Acno Fight Face Wash Price: Rs 180 Buy it here 2. Scrubs © Amazon A cleanser is never enough. While necessary to start your routine with, you also need a scrub to exfoliate the stubborn dirt that is deep seeded inside your pores. Use this twice a week. We recommend: Beardo Activated Charcoal Deep Cleansing Face Scrub Price: Rs 350 Buy it here 3. Moisturizer © Amazon You need to hydrate your skin with a good cream that locks in the moisture and helps create a protective barrier for your skin. A moisturizer, if used consistently, also helps fight dryness and premature signs of ageing. We recommend: The Man Company Essencia Shea Butter & Vitamin E Daily Moisturizing Cream Price: Rs 349 Buy it here 4. Sunscreen © Amazon Usually found in your girlfriend's beauty stash, an SPF is super important in fighting the harmful UV rays that can prove to be toxic for your skin. Don't assume the sunscreen has a gender, this product is super important if you step out in the day without exception of seasons. A common assumption is that sunscreen can only be used in the Summer, which is far from true. A good sunscreen should also be used in the Winter for protection. We recommend: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock (SPF 50+) Price: Rs 199 Buy it here
