  1. Ever since this pandemic, I have been thinking about setting up my own server at home for storing my image, video and audio backups that I can access on any device. While Google Drive has served me well in the past, I am now running out of storage space for images and videos that I shoot for work. I also have a massive DVD collection that I have converted to digital files which I need access to from to time. Now that DVD players are non-existent, the only way to watch content is via streaming. A solution to all these problems is the Synology DS220j, a personal cloud solution for backups and data sharing. The DS220j has countless uses including accessing your media files on phones, smart TVs and streaming boxes and even helps in storing video footage from CCTV cameras. From music to videos to images, the DS220j can store everything. Which Is The Best Hard Drive For NAS © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla While Synology only sells the NAS (network-attached storage) enclosures which means you need to get your own HDD for storing data. There are plenty of options available but we recommended getting the WD RED or WD RED Pro HDDs for this purpose. These drives are the industry standard amongst “data hoarders” simply because they are more reliable and specifically optimised for NAS systems. For the DS220j, we used 2X 6TB WD Red Pro drives for storing innumerable amounts of data such as images, movies, music and our entire PC backup. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The drives are built specifically for Synology’s RAID feature and come with a 5-year warranty. These drives are meant to be kept on 24/7 and work flawlessly with Synology’s RAID error recovery control feature. Last but not least, for streaming content, you need HDDs that have a high RPM and these drives can go up to 7200rpm. A simple search on Google and Reddit will yield that the WD Red line of HDDs are the industry standard for network-attached storages. So, for the purpose of this guide, we decided to go with the best and in our experience, these drives worked like a charm. Getting Set Up © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla When it comes to setting up, the DS220j is fairly straight forward. As the enclosure uses the SATA interface, you can essentially plug in the hard drives and get started with the setup. You do have to put in some screws though for better protection and keeping the HDDs in place. The exclusive has LED indicators and a small opening at the back for airflow keeping the drives cool. In addition, there is a Gigabit LAN port and three USB 3 ports. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Once you are done setting up and plugging in the DS220j with LAN, all you need to do is start a browser and load the IP address. You can locate the IP address from your router’s interface or use the DiskStation Manager (DSM) setup wizard. Once you’re done setting up the IP address, Server Name and your Synology account; its time to get rolling with transferring files. Since the DS220j is connected to the network via LAN, you can now transfer your files from the computer without using any external drives. You simply drag and drop folders as you like. I had setup a few folders such as movies, images, music and ebooks. After the transfer of your files is complete, you can now setup your media server via using a Plex Account. Streaming Your Content You will first need to download the Plex Media Server app for the package center; Synology’s sort of app store. Once downloaded, Plex will automatically setup the media server with the DS220j after you have signed in. You are now almost ready to stream your own content on your phone, smart TV and media player. Click on the Plex Media Server, go to Settings and set up your directory path from the menu. Once the remote patch from Plex has been mapped, the app will automatically start indexing content from your enclosure. © MensXP In order to start viewing your content, you need to make sure you are on the same network as the DS220j on your device and have the Plex app installed. Plex is available on Android, iOS, Android TV, Apple TV, Samsung Smart TVs, LG Smart TVs and every other major Android smart TV out there. Once you’ve signed in to Plex from your smartphone or TV, your entire library will be viewable and you can start watching right away. Thanks to being on the local network, you don’t experience any form of buffering problems either as you simply play audio or videos directly from the HDD. If you wish to watch content on your smartphone or tablet from anywhere, you will have to setup a virtual network on your router if it supports its and connect to the DS220j via that method. © Plex The Ubiquiti Dream Machine is capable of doing that however there are plenty of other routers that have the same feature by default. Having said that, when playing content remotely, the DS200j will transcode the video and the enclosure’s Realtek RTD1296 1.4Ghz quad-core processor and 2GB RAM is only capable of running one stream at a time. Since this is an entry-level NAS enclosure, you can’t really upgrade the hardware with this model however you can do so with some of Synology’s other models. When viewing content from the same network, you can have multiple devices streaming content at the same time without any problems. Apart from streaming your own content, you can also use the DS22j for taking backups of your devices and in turn take a backup of your backup. You can use Synology’s RAID feature which basically takes an automatic backup of your stored files. In the event of a hard drive failing, you will still have access to all of your data however there is a drawback to this solution. The feature basically reduces the total usable storage space by half, in our case that would be 6TB as the other 6TB was being used for the automatic backup. Why The Synology DS22j? © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Synology DS220j enclosure is the perfect starting point for beginners and it does not take too much space. It’s ideal for saving backup data or running a home media server to stream video, music, audiobooks and other tasks that can be automated. If you’ve always been wondering how one can set up a media server of their own, the Synology DS22j is the perfect way to go. View the full article
  2. Washing your face seems like the most basic chore of the day. However, if you're doing it wrong, it could be the very reason behind your skincare woes. © Unsplash Here are a few things that you should keep in mind while cleaning your face every day. Do:∎ Use lukewarm water to wash your face. This temperature is great for weeding out dirt and gunk from the skin. However, be mindful of the temperature, water that is too hot can also dehydrate the skin quickly by stripping its naturally formed protective oil barrier. © iStock ∎ Make sure you're rinsing out all the foam and soap residue. If the residue is left behind, it can block your pores. ∎ Lastly, find a good face wash that suits your skin type. You need a face wash that is gentle to your skin and also checks all the boxes when it comes to tackling your skin woes. __ECOMPRODUCT__170__ Don’t:∎ Keep using the same towel to wipe your face for weeks at end. Reusing the same towel over and over can spread bacteria, leading to skin breakouts and defeating the purpose of washing your face every day. © iStock ∎ Use the same towel that you use to clean up the rest of the body. We have germs all over our bodies that shouldn't come in contact with our face especially after washing it. It is advisable to have separate towels for both the face and the rest of the body. © iStock ∎ Wash your face harshly or more than twice a day defeats the purpose of all the TLC you give your skin during a skincare routine. The pulling of the skin leads to the loss of its natural elasticity and will lead to baggy skin or ageing of the skin quickly. View the full article
  3. Impromptu breakouts on the face are the biggest buzzkill, what's even worse about these acne marks are the scars they leave behind. These scars take months to fade away. But, if you're looking for a quick way to get rid of these scars, you've come to the right place. © Unsplash What Are Acne Scars?Acne scars are the marks left behind by breakouts. They can show up in different ways and depend on the kind of acne experienced. Having said that, there are three types of acne scars. Atrophic scarring, referring to the depression or indentation it leaves behind. These take the most time to heal. The other kinds are namely keloid and hypertrophic lesions that are common on the jawline and the chest. While hypertrophic scars are confined to the area the pimple inhabited, keloid scarring often spreads across. © Unsplash What Causes Acne Scars?The appearance of an acne scar is determined by the size, duration, and healing process of the acne. The longer your acne took to heal, will affect the kind of scar that forms later on. Do Acne Scars Go Away?It really depends on the kind of scar you have. While some scars disappear others might only lessen in size. If scars are deep, they can take a little longer and aggressive treatments. How To Prevent Acne ScarsIn order to prevent future acne scars, a rule of thumb is to not pick at your pimples, and refrain from popping them. Other than that, you can also add the following to your grooming stash: 1. Exfoliators For Acne Scars Using exfoliators can help unclog the pores and stimulate collagen and elastin into the skin at the same time. You could try the Espa clarifying skin scrub. An exfoliator that cleanses, clarifies while protecting the skin's natural moisture barrier. © espa 2. Niacinamide An ingredient that is great for helping with the pesky dark spots on the skin. Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 and has multiple uses. It is anti-inflammatory and nixes active acne. Look for niacinamide in your skincare products. 3. SPF Using an SPF of 30 or higher can stop acne lesions from leaving dark marks on the skin. One should typically use an SPF moisturiser year-round, every day, regardless of the sun’s exposure. You can use the Phy Shield Daily Defence Cream SPF 45 __ECOMPRODUCT__1066__ 4. Vitamin C Vitamin C is another powerful antioxidant that repairs skin cells. It is recommended to use vitamin C to apply every morning before sunscreen, this helps prevent redness and inflammation as well. You could use the Pilgrim Vitamin C Night Serum. © pilgrim View the full article
  4. Greasy hair has never looked good on anyone and it never will. Period. There are several reasons for your hair to look oily, whether it's washing your hair every now and then or the product that you are using. No matter what the reason is, it's always possible to fix the problem and make your hair look fresh again. Here are some easy ways to do so: 1. Control Your Hair Washing Routine © iStock While you might assume that it's okay to wash your hair every day, it's actually the opposite of that. Washing your hair can make the situation worse. Why? Your hair needs to retain its natural oils as well and when you shampoo too much, it strips it away and hence, your glands produce more oil than required. This makes your hair greasy. In this case, switch to a natural shampoo and cut down washing your hair to thrice a week, to avoid the greasy appearance. 2. Choosing The Right Styling Products © iStock Styling products are the best way to get the type of hairstyle you need but these products are the worst enemies for greasy hair. Choose lightweight styling products. Opt for a pomade as it helps you get the hairstyle you want and at the same time, it does not make your hair look greasy. 3. Don't Use The Brush Too Much © iStock When you have a greasy hair situation, you don't have to abide by the 100-brushstrokes-daily rule. Combing your hair too much can actually activate the oil glands, which can lead to the production of more oil. 4. Check For Dry Scalp © iStock Believe it or not, but sometimes even dry scalp is the biggest culprit of excessive oil production, which can lead to greasy hair. In such cases, make use of shampoos for dry scalp. 5. Skip Conditioner © iStock Using a conditioner can make your hair look more oily. Products like conditioners and heavy hair products have shine elements, that have the potential to make your hair look oily. To reduce the greasy appearance, opt for matte finish products instead. If you are still looking to condition your hair, use a natural remedy of egg yolk and lemon juice on your hair. 6. Don't Touch Your Hair Too Much © iStock You might think that touching your hair is okay but reality check, it's not. In fact, when you touch your hair throughout the day, this can lead to greasy hair, as the oil from your hands can affect your hair. This can also stimulate more oil and hence, it is advised that you keep your hands clean and sweat-free. View the full article

  7. Have you been looking at small fonts for a bit too long? Do you like staring at the sun like Mr. Bachchan in Mohabbatein? Perhaps it feels like you’ve been glued to your laptop for ages. These are only a few reasons why you feel your vision is being compromised. But the most important one is ignoring eye care. To be honest, there’s no miracle remedy to vision correction without professional help and there’s no quick fix for eyesight problems. But there are a few tools that can still help your eyesight naturally in the long run. Get Some Good Food For The EyesNutrients that are necessary for good vision: Vitamin A, C and E, zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, carotenoids (lutein and zeaxanthin). Foods that are rich in these vision-friendly nutrients: Carrots, amla, red peppers, broccoli, spinach, strawberries, sweet potato, citruses, berries, almonds, figs, flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, salmon, leafy greens, zucchini, eggs. Add these to your daily diet and watch your eye muscles strengthen with time. __ECOMPRODUCT__1037__ Wear Protective SunglassesShades don’t just make you look cool, they also protect your eyes from conditions that stem from eye damage including cataracts, macular degeneration and pterygium (a growth tissue over the white portion of the eye). Pterygium can lead to blurred vision. Wearing sunglasses is one of the most important steps you can take to improve your eyesight. Go for a pair that blocks out 99 to 100 percent of UVA and UVB radiation from the sun. __ECOMPRODUCT__1038__ Eye Relaxation Is Must The best ways to relax your eyes are: Getting proper sleep (preferably with an eye pillow) and following the 20-20-20 rule. That means every 20 minutes, you should stop staring at your laptop screen and look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds. __ECOMPRODUCT__737__ Tried Eye Massage Yet?Use your index finger and thumb to massage the pressure points found on the inner edge of the eyes and around your eyes. Do it every day for 5 minutes to relax your eyes and have a clearer vision. It is best to use massage oil for better results. __ECOMPRODUCT__1039__ Eye Exercises To Strengthen The MusclesExercise 1: Sit on a chair. Keep your body relaxed and back straight. Cover one of your eyes with a hand. Take a pen and bring it to the eye level. Focus on its tip. Move the pen away and closer to your eyes and continue to focus on its tip. Repeat the same with the other eye. 5 reps per eye. Exercise 2: Practice throwing and catching a ball while maintaining your focus on the ball. Exercise 3: Early in the morning, stand facing the sun and close your eyes. Make sure your eyes are relaxed. Move your head from right to left and left to right for 2 minutes allowing the rays of the sun to fall on the eyes. Exercise 4: Sit on a chair comfortably. Place a pillow on your laps for comfort. Rub your hands for a minute to generate heat. Gently place your palms. Keep your eyes open and count till 20. Let your eyes see the darkness inside your hands. __ECOMPRODUCT__1040__ The BottomlineYou may not connect your eyesight to your workouts, basic hygiene and diet but they all play an important role here. These methods may not protect your vision from every single eye condition that exists but they can always lower your chances of developing an issue that hurts your eyesight.

  8. Bad digestion is at the root of all evil—starting from acne and hormonal imbalances to gastric problems and mood swings. Ayurveda explains this fact in the best possible way. In Ayurveda, Agni (fire) is the source of life. Everything you consume is looked upon as an offering to Agni, from food to emotions. What you eat can nourish and strengthen this fire, boosting your digestive health—or it can wreak havoc on it. But the real question is, does Ayurveda tell us how to improve digestion? The answer is yes. According to Ayurveda, these are the easiest ways to balance metabolic fire. 1. Hello, Ginger!Ginger can relax the muscles of the intestines and relieve the symptoms of gas, indigestion and cramping. A study done by the European Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology confirmed that ginger speeds up the movement of food from the stomach to the small intestine, stimulating the process of digestion. So sipping ginger tea throughout the day will definitely help aid digestion. __ECOMPRODUCT__1031__ 2. Drink: Warm Water + Fennel SeedsChewing fennel seeds after a meal can aid digestion, gas and bloating and it is already a popular practice in India. But if you prefer drinking your way to good digestive health, fennel seeds-infused warm water is one of your best options. Roast 1 teaspoon of fennel seeds and add it to 1 cup of boiled water. Also, add some freshly grated pieces of ginger, a pinch of hing (asafoetida) and a dash of rock salt. Sip it slowly after your meal. __ECOMPRODUCT__1032__ 3. Eat: Coriander & Mint Chutney Make a chutney using equal parts of coriander and mint powder. Add freshly grated ginger and some lemon juice to it. Pair it with your meal simply because it’s tasty and it aids digestion. __ECOMPRODUCT__1033__ 4. Meditate Twice A Day, That’s All We AskSeveral studies have confirmed the genetic changes that occur through regular meditation. Much like every other scenario, meditation can help you in controlling digestion by naturally balancing Agni. Practice meditation for 20-30 minutes, twice daily. In the morning and in the evening to unwind. __ECOMPRODUCT__738__ 5. Detox RegularlyDetoxification is a healthier way of fasting. It gives our body some extra time to rejuvenate and repair the tissues. It’s a natural way of flushing out the harmful toxins and free radicals that are often responsible for blocked intestines, irregular bowel movement and inactive digestive system. So once a week, give your body a break from regular food and go for detox teas and fruit and vegetable juices for better digestive health. __ECOMPRODUCT__1034__ What Causes Poor Digestion?Harmful foods such as processed meats, fried items, very cold foods can create an undigested residue that forms toxins. According to Ayurveda, it’s called “ama”. Ama is the root cause of the disease. So the best advice most Ayurvedic practitioners give is following good eating habits such as: Eat only when you’re hungry.Avoid foods that are oily, spicy, cold, wet, processed and fried.Keep gaps of at least 3 hours between each meal. Chew properly for good digestion. Eat more alkaline foods to regulate gastric fire.The BottomlineAnother suggestion from Ayurveda to improve digestion: Avoid ice water as it slows Agni and digestion. Instead, take small sips of warm water during a meal. Explore More View the full article

  10. Ayushmann Khurrana is one of the few celebrities, who besides being an immaculate actor, is also a great singer and a writer. He has always been experimental, not just with the roles he chooses to do, but also with his fashion game. He also has impeccable taste when it comes to style and has been seen wearing some of most unconventional silhouettes. © Instagram/Ayushmann Khurrana © Viral Bhayani Amidst the lockdown, we didn't see much of Ayushmann but very recently, he was papped at the Mumbai airport with his family. While the appearance got us really excited, we also couldn't help but notice Ayushmann's latest style move. We are talking about the zany sneakers that literally have an intergalactic vibe going on. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani © Nike The sneakers, in question, are a part of Jordan Brand's latest retro collection and the pair is called Air Jordan 1 in Metallic Silver. The pair was first released in 2001 but the recent colourway has a futuristic edge to it. The monochromatic pair is accentuated throughout with leather material. Besides that, the high top silhouette also has a round toe, flat rubber sole with branded insole. © Nike Overall, these sneakers are the zaniest shoes we have seen at the start of 2021. As for the price, these are worth almost Rs 18,000. Considering that Ayushmann usually goes for luxury brand shoes, these, on the other hand, are comparatively affordable. © Viral Bhayani We also like the way Ayushmann has worked his outfit here. The asymmetrical hoodie is layered over a basic black T-shirt and he has teamed it with a pair of classic blue denim. His round glasses and the Adidas black mask accentuates the overall look and his man bun too is working well with the style experiment. If we ever have to time travel (here is hoping), we reckon that these are the best type of shoes to do that in. Basically, futuristic shoes FTW! View the full article
  11. Too many perfume bottles, very little time to finish them. You can, of course, pass on a fragrance or two to your siblings and friends. But sometimes even they don’t like it. Perfumes are very personal. You don’t just buy them based on your taste but also outgrow them with age and mood. You might not be so fond of that spicy scent you bought last year when you planned back-to-back night outs or the fruity samples that came along. And that’s okay. This doesn’t mean your Eau de Whatever will get wasted, just focus on the other ways to use unwanted perfumes. __ECOMLOOKS__2359__ __ECOMLOOKS__2360__ __ECOMLOOKS__2361__ __ECOMLOOKS__2362__ __ECOMLOOKS__2363__ The BottomlinePerfumes can make you feel better instantly but the ones you don’t like are no good for the mood.

  13. Did you know when you sleep in a warmer room, you have more pleasant dreams?

  14. Most of us don’t mind going the extra mile to look young and beautiful. We’re open to spending a little extra on grooming products that can deliver better results and so is the beauty industry. This is why we’re witnessing more and more skincare products that are infused with expensive ingredients like gold and caviar. These formulas target particular issues and might not be relevant for everyday use. But there are a few expensive ingredients that are already a part of our daily grooming routine. These skin care ingredients have done a great job at introducing glow to our skin and delaying the arrival of fine lines. So much so that we’ve forgotten how expensive they are. Kashmiri SaffronThe world’s most expensive spice has made it to your beauty shelf and we’re sure you already know why. A great deal of labour and time goes into cultivating saffron. The crocus flowers are converted into threadlike pieces of Kesar before it reaches us. And it takes around 160,000 flowers to yield 1 Kg of saffron. All that labour for what? To add glow to the skin, treat baldness and even depression. Along with plenty of other health benefits, saffron can provide protection to your skin against harmful UV rays. __ECOMPRODUCT__1021__ Jasmine Essential OilWho doesn’t love the evocative scent of Jasmine? Indians have easy access to this heavenly flower but did you know that it takes around 7.5 million jasmine flowers to produce only 1 kg of essential oil? Its rich scent is great for aiding inflammation, evening out the complexion, soothing sensitive skin and boosting circulation. It’s an excellent moisturiser and great anti-ageing products. __ECOMPRODUCT__1022__ Rosehip OilRosa rubiginosa is a wild rose bush that grows in Chile and Argentina. It produces pale pink flowers. These blooms are quite ethereal with a life span of 24 hours. Once its petals fall, a reddish fruit is left. The seeds of this much-coveted reddish fruit are used to produce rosehip oil. This oil is packed with omegas and vitamins A, C and E. It’s a natural retinoic acid that can delay skin ageing, regenerate skin cells and increase elastin levels by promoting collagen production. Regular use of rosehip oil can give you firmer skin, reverse UV damage and even out the skin tone. __ECOMPRODUCT__1023__ Cupuaçu ButterCupuaçu (pronounced coo-poo-ah-sue) butter comes from a creamy, fleshy, delicious fruit that grows on a 65 feet tall tree in the Amazon rainforest. Cupuaçu tree is related to cacao and Brazilians are already eating Cupuaçu chocolates. The butter has a lot of healthy fats that can help in restoring skin moisture. It melts into the skin when applied. It’s chock-full of antioxidants and tannins which can hydrate and protect the skin from UV rays. Even when applied to hair, this vitamin-E-rich butter softens the strands which makes it a perfect ingredient for shaving cream. __ECOMPRODUCT__316__ Old Rose ClayOld Rose Clay is another gem of an ingredient that comes from Brazil. It has a natural tint and is packed with minerals. The clay is derived from sedimentary rocks that have undergone the process of erosion and have been exposed to different climatic processes for thousands of years. Old rose clay works beautifully on sensitive skin. It softens the skin, adds glow and minimises the appearance of large pores and promotes even skin tone. __ECOMPRODUCT__286__ Final ThoughtsThere are plenty of other expensive ingredients like white truffles and Helichrysum that are yet to become a part of our daily hair and skincare routine but if you want to see some real results, real quick, you can trust the ones we’ve listed above.

  15. What is the one thing we all love to do when watching a thriller? Figuring out who the culprit is before the climax reveals it. Thinking like a detective and keeping an eye out for all the clues that the characters are missing makes the whole binging experience even more fun. So, if you love playing detective as much as we do then MX Player’s ‘The Missing Stone’ will help you live out your Sherlock Holmes dreams through the 5 episodes. For everyone living under their blankets, The Missing Stone is a story of a happily married woman, Dhwani who goes from planning her birthday weekend to searching for sister, Payal who mysteriously disappears one night.
