Stress-related factors contribute tremendously to how one looks and feels. This translates to less-healthy skin. Reducing work and socially related stress can easily prevent skin blemishes such as pimples, rashes, and blisters. The 5 beauty tips to reduce blemishes include:


Exercise regularly to increase blood flow, which in turn sends more oxygen and vital nutrients to the skin. Not having enough time to exercise is normally a result of stress-related activities. Make time at home, before and after work, to exercise a little.

These workouts trigger hormones that also help with how your skin deals with toxicity. If you exercise with makeup on (ladies), there is a chance that breakouts may occur. Therefore, stick to exercising with clean skin.

As you exercise, stay hydrated with water as opposed to energy drinks. The sugars inherent in sports drinks will greatly hinder your attempts at looking younger. Try to exercise away from excessive sun rays or polluted areas. Exercising does not have to be gym-oriented. Walking to and from the office is enough to get the right nutrients to your skin.


Avoid sports drinks and sodas at all costs. The idea is to remove toxins from your body, not add to them. Drink lots of water to bring a glowing look to your skin.

H20 helps dilute any chemicals that are in your body. These may be alcohol or food-related. Medicines that we take also have an impact on our skin. The diluting effect of water helps to prevent them from causing blemishes on our skins.

Drinking two liters of water a day is recommended, but that varies with BMI. Plus, depending on your intake of alcohol or junk food, you might want to customize your h20 intake.

Avoid Sun Rays

Too much exposure to the sun causes faster aging and possible cancer in some cases. Time spent at the beach can be fun under an umbrella, as opposed to directly under the sun.

Use a sunscreen especially if you have lighter skin. Less melanin on your skin means more damage to you under the sun. Apply a sunscreen of at least SPF 15 while out and about in the sun. Also, you could avoid the sun during its peak hours- 10 a.m. to around 4 o’clock in the afternoon.

Certain clothes help with ultraviolet protection. If you have to wear light clothes, ensure that they long enough to cover sensitive areas. Alternatively, you could make use of additives to your laundry that strengthens the clothing. This added protection will reduce the sun’s rays from damaging your skin.

Facial Treatment

Before you even consider what chemicals to apply on your face, try to maintain a clean skin using bland soaps. Strong soaps will remove essential oils from your skin, rendering it vulnerable to toxins from outside.

If you prefer to use one on a daily basis, consider a good rating for the SPF count. This will prevent you from having to use multiple skin cleansers when you expose yourself to the sun. Pixabay

Especially for the ladies, avoid strong chemicals when performing a facial. Use soaps rather than facial creams to remove those unwanted particles on your face. For men, applying shaving cream will reduce the risk of bumps or ingrown hair.

We all have different types of skin and thus, varying requirements. Use a moisturizer that matches your skin. If you prefer to use one on a daily basis, consider a good rating for the SPF count. This will prevent you from having to use multiple skin cleansers when you expose yourself to the sun.

Hand Treatment

Our hands deal with a lot of elements on the regular. Whether you are lady attending to cooking chores, or lad helping out with the cleaning. While on the run, our hands deal with oils, dust, hot air, cold air, and mixed chemicals from shaking hands.

To remove these chemicals, use sanitizers on a regular basis. These can be expensive but handwashing soaps like Dettol are good for eliminating a decent amount of germs. Make use of products that contain Aloe Vera, Lanolin, and a bit of Glycerin.

Tips on how to take care of your nails? Do not under any circumstances let stress lead you nail-biting. Chewing nails is not only disgusting, but it also makes it harder to maintain beautiful nails. Always cut your nails with a decent cutter and avoid pulling out cuticles. The skin may break, causing irritation and a very unpleasant feel, and look. For men, maintain a nail-length no longer than a Rupee coin.

Recently, Tom and Jerry was made into a live action film

Every child who grew up in the 90s and the early 00s has certainly grown up around Tom and Jerry, the adorable, infamous cat-chases-mouse cartoon. The idea of naughtiness and playing mischief had the standards that this particular series set for children and defined how much wreckage was funny enough.

The show's creators, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera initially named their characters Jasper and Jinx. They did not plan for the fame that Tom and Jerry brought them when they released a movie by the name of "Puss Gets the Boot". This movie featured a certain cat and mouse who were a notorious pair, named Jasper and Jinx. When the movie became a hit, the names of the characters were changed and the show shot to fame.

Indians Rarely Make Time For Arts And Culture, Says Survey

One of India's leading private museums, the Museum of Art & Photography (MAP) Bengaluru, has released new primary research conducted by the ReReeti Foundation, on audience behaviour in India's cultural sector. While more than half of the respondents thought the arts and culture are essential, they rarely manage to make time for it. The majority (60.6 per cent), mostly young people under 30, felt Indian museums could present more engaging content, and most perceived culture as anthropological/ sociological. Of the diverse categories included, music emerged as the most popular cultural activity.

The report is based on a survey of 500 people, which included school and college students, professionals across sectors, homemakers and senior citizens. The first initiative of its kind in the cultural space, the report shares valuable insights into the behaviour and expectations of Indian audiences engaging with a broad range of cultural activities. As part of MAP's mission to foster meaningful connections between communities and the cultural sector globally, which includes its innovative digital programme Museums Without Borders, the report shares a wealth of insights that can help museums across the country understand their audiences better. As much as 60.6 per cent said Indian museums are not experimental enough, and can do more to create engaging content that is also relevant to surrounding communities.As much as 60.6 per cent said Indian museums are not experimental enough, and can do more to create engaging content that is also relevant to surrounding communities.

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?

Drinking feni, may well be the answer, says the secretary of the Goa Cashew Feni Distillers and Bottlers Association Hansel Vaz, who on Thursday said, that sipping the state's unique alcoholic drink and making it popular would directly aid the greening of Goa's hills and other barren landscapes.

"To get more cashews, we need to plant more trees. I always say, by drinking feni you will save Goa, because we will be planting more cashew trees and we will have greener hills. The beauty of cashew is you do not need fertile land. You can grow it on a hill which can provide no nutrition. We will be able to grow more trees, if we can sell feni properly," Vaz said. Vaz's comments come at a time when the hillsides of the coastal state have witnessed significant deforestation for real estate development and for infrastructure projects. Feni is manufactured by fermenting and double distilling juice from the cashew apple.
