Listed below are few basic grooming tips and tools for men can try at-home

Inaccessibility to salons and the fear of stepping out has completely evolved the way men look at grooming services. The new at-home environment has created a huge demand for easy-to-use grooming tools and do-it-yourself (DIY) styling products. Additionally, apart from the comfort and convenience factors, consumers prefer having more control over their style and overall looks. This has led to a massive uprise in the popularity of personal care and even skincare appliances.

Listed below are few basic grooming tips and tools for men can try at-home:

Beard Styling

Beard trimmer provides precision, easiness and a salon-like trim and style in few simple steps. To maintain a clean beard, it is important to use a product that gives facial hair neat and sharp cuts. Therefore, the use of trimmers that come with a set of clippers or multiple length settings allow precision for an even trim. The first thing before you shave is to decide the shape of your beard to suit your face. For instance, for rounder faces, keeping a fuller beard is recommended while for a slimmer look, sport a more streamlined and refined beard. Once you have shaved the beard into shape, apply beard oil to keep your beard soft, healthy, and moisturized.

Face Cleansing at home

In summers, due to the weather, one tends to sweat more than usual, often leading the growth of bacteria. When combined with dirt and dust that sticks to the sweat, your skin can end up in breakouts and pimples. To keep these at bay, wash your face twice a day using a face wash. Facial tools like a facial cleanser can also be used to remove skin impurities. Havells SC5070 Facial Cleanser is extremely user-friendly for daily cleansing routine or deeper exfoliation. This premium product also comes with multiple operation modes. In addition, the device is water-resistant. Fitted with smart alerts, it will light you up in just one use.

Hair Care

Now that you cannot go to salons and need to tend to your hair at home, starting with hair spa can be a good idea. To do so, oil your hair first and let it stay for 20 minutes. Then, take a towel and dip it in hot water. Now, wrap the towel around your hair so that the steam helps the oil penetration deeper inside your scalp. The next step is to wash your hair with a good quality shampoo and conditioner. Post this step, you can style your hair with the Havells HD3162 Men's Hair Dryer which comes with a thin concentrator designed for focussed blow dry and salon worthy results.

Body Grooming

Keeping hair growth at bay helps to maintain body hygiene, especially during summers and when the weather is humid. A body groomer provides comfortable trimming of unwanted body hair. It gets rid of hair from various body areas such as chest, armpits and legs. Designed for comfortable trimming of hair, a body groomer is best to be used on longer hair. Since it takes time to groom yourself, you should look for a body groomer that you can easily hold for longer durations. Additionally, a good body groomer is ergonomically designed to allow easy handling and usage.

Nailcare

At least once a week, dedicate 5 minutes to clip your nails. Not only your fingernails, which are quite visible but also your toenails. While cutting your nails, do not ignore the hangnails and cuticles. Using a clipper is the best way for dry cuticles. Using a file, on the other hand, can give the nails a smooth texture. The Havells NP2001 Nail Shiner can help buff away the harsh edges and get professional-looking nails every time. This tool can be used with or without a cord to file on your fingers and toes. The nail shiner comes with a micro-USB charging port that provides 60 minutes of cordless use after 180 minutes of full charge. After buffing, use the shiner to make your nails look beautiful and healthy which lasts up to 2 weeks.

What the Heck Do I Do With My Life?: How to Flourish in Our Turbulent Times

Many causes, including technology, climate change, demographics, and inequality, will cause our planet to change more in this century than in all of human history. Extreme change is offering unparalleled opportunities for individuals, companies, and society, as well as a 'adaptive challenge.' Those who can adapt to a fast-paced, complex, dynamic, and unpredictably changing world will prosper. Those who are unable to do so will suffer immensely.

There are obvious signals that we need new ways of thinking about the world and our place in it all over the place. Our old ways of thinking about education, lifestyle, success, and happiness are no longer valid. What are the changes in the workplace? When future jobs are still being invented, how can you know what talents will be useful? Will 'jobs' even exist in the future, or will we be relegated to a world of projects and freelance work? What do you do with all of this and more?

What the Heck Do I Do With My Life? is a book on figuring out what you want to do with your life. Ravi Venkatesan argues that effective adaptation in the twenty-first century necessitates a "paradigm shift," a new attitude, new talents, and new techniques. Ravi also considers how, rather than drifting along like a piece of driftwood, we will need to live life more consciously, making deliberate decisions about who we are, what we do, and how we live.

Neeraj Chopra: From Panipat to The Podium

On the night of August 7, 2021, a billion Indians' long-held desire came true as Neeraj Chopra won gold in the javelin in the Tokyo Olympics 2020. The wait, on the other hand, had been extremely long. In reality, this is India's first individual gold medal in athletics since the modern Olympic Games began. The entire country showered him with affection when he did it in his signature flair and smile. The media went crazy, and the youth discovered a new source of inspiration. People flocked to get their photos taken with him, and businesses discovered a new wonder-ambassador. Neeraj Chopra: I'm Neeraj Chopra, and I'm From Panipat to the Podium begins in a small village in Panipat and tells the story of his formative years, which were marked by restricted resources and opportunities. It takes readers through his journey to Panchkula and then to the national camp in his quest to conquer the world.

It's A Wonderful World: A Memoir

His book is a provocative read that makes us wish we had a life like his. Khalid Ansari's life has been an exciting and purposeful journey in service to his fellow human beings, beginning with his birth in Mumbai's impoverished Madanpura to a father who began his life as an orphan and a mother from a poor household. Ansari has attempted to depict some highlights of a splendored life that he has been lucky to experience, catching stars while chasing rainbows in this 'donkey's tale'. It's been la vie en rose for him, from founding newspapers and magazines to representing his country at the United Nations, accompanying dignitaries on state visits, covering cricket Test matches, nine Olympics, Commonwealth and Asian Games, travelling the world, and being awarded the Padma Shri award. The author has worked hard to keep this narrative from devolving into a 'I-did-this-did-that' pat-on-the-back, shabash!' By 'spicing' it up with dollops of frothy stories and self-critical bon mots, he has attempted a discourse on the meaning of life, the 'right path,' and the like, even as he has attempted a discourse on the purpose of life, the 'right route,' and the like.
