Myths gripping men's beauty. Lifetimestock

August 31, 2017: Men too like women crave to look ‘beautiful,’ although the term is supplanted by a more masculine word, that is, ‘Handsome.’ Men also worry about their skin. Nevertheless, there exist some myths revolving around the men’s beauty, and many men hold them true.

Let’s talk about myths concerning men’s beauty one by one:

Myth #1 

Shaved chests are good

Chest must never more be shaved, dear men. It increases the hair growth and develops rashes.

Myth #2

Beauty related practices are only for women

This claim is bogus, in fact, there are many beauty treatments for men as well.

Myth #3

Men have oily skin. So why moisturize? 

No, that’s not true. The skin releases oil because of lack of water. To keep the skin hydrated, drink lots of water and apply a gel instead of cream.

Myth #4

Use body soap. Men do not have sensitive skin

Body soaps dry out the skin, which can trigger skin allergy and form cracks.

Myth #5 

Men do not require a shaving gel

Shaving without the shaving gel may form cuts on the face, which is very dangerous.

Myth #6

Men should wash their face several times after playing outdoors

Regular facial cleansing dries out the skin and prompts the oil glands to release more oil. Thus, it is always suggested to wash your face 2-3 times a day.

Myth #7

Men keep no sunscreen at home

Even while sitting at your home, Ultra rays may catch up on you and harm the skin. So keep one at home too.

  • There are two types of meditation techniques- Concentrative and Nondirective
  • A team of Norwegian researchers studied fourteen people’s meditation by MRI scan
  • They have found out how the brain operates in different techniques

July 17, 2017: The Royal Norwegian Embassy in New Delhi mentioned about the latest research in Oslo. MRI scans of 14 people were studied in three different states- Resting, Nondirective meditation and Concentrative meditation. The research sought to find out how meditation affects the brain activity.

Nondirective and Concentrative are the two main groups of meditation techniques. The concentrative meditation, as the name suggests, is when you suppress all other thoughts by focusing intensely on one specific thought. For many, that one specific thought is breathing. In Nondirective meditation, your mind is allowed to wander to all sorts of places beyond reality while the body still balances and focuses on breathing, mentioned ANI report.

Researchers from the University of Oslo, University of Sydney, and Norwegian University of Science and Technology studied to brain scans to determine how the brain was functioning under different states.

The part of the brain responsible for self-thoughts and feelings was more active in the nondirective method as compared to the state of resting. However, in concentrative meditation, the brain activity was the same as resting. Jian Xu, one of the researchers, observed how “the activity of the brain was greatest when the person’s thoughts wandered freely on their own, rather than when the brain worked to be more strongly focused.”

The research concludes that there is more room for thoughts and emotions to process in nondirective meditation.
