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.

"In India, to be born as a man is a crime, to question a woman is an atrocious crime, and this all because of those women who keep suppressing men in the name of feminism."

Feminism, a worldwide movement that started to establish, define and defend equal rights for women in all sections- economically, politically, and socially. India, being a patriarchal society gives a gender advantage to the men in the society thus, Indian feminists sought to fight against the culture-specific issue for women in India. Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal.

This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female. Many Malayalis believe that the Yakshi wears a white saree and had long hair. She has a particular fragrance, which is believed to be the fragrance of the Indian devil-tree flowers.

They are culturally defined either as "neither men nor women" or as men who become women by adopting women's dress and behavior. Section 377 of the India Penal code that criminalized all sexual acts "against the order of nature" i.e. engaging in oral sex or anal sex along with other homosexual activities were against the law, ripping homosexual people off of their basic human rights. Thus, the Indian Supreme Court ruled a portion of Section 377 unconstitutional on 6th September 2018.
