New Delhi, Dec 31, 2016: Avoid common skincare mistakes that most guys make by skipping foaming shave cream and saying no to one soap bar for everything, says an expert.

Josh Meyer, co-founder and CEO of Brickell Men’s Products (mens skin care and grooming brand), pointed out a few mistakes and ways to fix them:

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

*One soap for everything: Face skin is the most sensitive and has unique skincare needs. Washing your body and face with the same soap is not a good idea.

Start by using a natural face wash for men with organic ingredients. A face wash with activated charcoal is a good option. It removes bacteria and dirt without harsh chemicals that can cause long term damage to your skin.

Ditch your old soap bar and go with a natural soap bar or body wash for men instead.

*Your shave routine might cause skin irritation: Foaming shave cream is no good for your skin. It does a poor job of protecting your skin and lubricating your razor. The air bubbles that you call foam do almost nothing to keep your face irritation-free.

Upgrade to a lotion based no-foam shave cream for men instead. You will notice the difference immediately. Using a high-quality shave cream means less redness, fewer ingrown hairs, and minimal skin irritation or itchiness.

Always finish up with a natural aftershave. It should not contain alcohol. So pick up an aftershave with healing, calming ingredients instead.

*Using face wash for men twice daily is essential: But that doesn’t mean that face moisturiser for men isn’t just as important. Most men should be using moisturiser every time they wash their faces.

*Not using an SPF: Many factors can lead to dry skin, but the sun is by far the number one offender.

Always use sun protection. Make it a part of your routine – right after your moisturiser. Choose a sunscreen rated SPF 15 or higher. (IANS)

The day of Mahalaya bears supreme significance to the Bengalis. The day is immensely important because on this day people throng to the holy river Ganges in order to pay homage to their ancestors and forefathers. Clad in white dhotis, people offer prayers and take dips in the river while praying for their demised dear ones. The ritual is popular as “Torpon”.

As per Hindu myth, on “Devipaksha”, the Gods and the Goddesses began their preparations to celebrate “Mahamaya” or Goddess Durga, who was brought upon by the trinity- Brahma, Vishnu, and Maheshwara; to annihilate the fierce demon king named Mahishasura. The captivating story of the Goddess defeating the demon got popularized with the goddess being revered as “Durgatinashini” or the one who banishes all the evils and miseries of the world. The victory of the Goddess is celebrated as ‘Durga Puja’.

Mahalaya remains incomplete without the magical chanting of the scriptural verses from the ‘Chandi Kavya’ that is broadcasted at dawn in All India Radio in the form of a marvelous audio montage enthralling the souls of the Bengalis. Presented with wonderful devotional music, acoustic drama, and classical songs- the program is also translated to Hindi and played for the whole pan-Indian listeners.

The program is inseparable from Mahalaya and has been going on for over six decades till date. The magic is induced by the popular Birendra Krishna Bhadra whose voice makes the recitation of the “Chandi Kavya” even more magnificent! He has been a legend and the dawn of Mahalaya turns insipid without the reverberating and enchanting voice of the legendary man.

Mahalaya will keep spreading the magic and setting the vigor of the greatest festival of the Bengalis- the Durga Puja, to worship the supreme Goddess, eternally.
