Summer heat calls for giving up on those heavy and greasy products and switching to safe, healthy and natural products which can easily seep in through the pores of the face. So make sure you are choosing your beauty rituals wisely.

Supriya Malik, beauty expert and founder at Indulgeo Essentials and Dilip Kundlia, founder and beauty expert, Oshea Herbals have logged in a few tips to deal with different skin types, which are surely unavoidable:


* Dry Skin: During summers, we often tend to avoid venturing out under the scorching sun and prefer staying in an air conditioned environment. The skin gets very dull and dry, posing a need for reinstatement of moisture content in the skin via some essential facial oils. These oils safeguard the trans epidermal water loss by creating a natural protective barrier on the skin.

Organic oils for dry skin: Almond oil, Lavender oil, Avocado oil, Argan oil, Flaxseed oil, Rosehip oil, Lemongrass oil.

* Oily Skin: Sweating is an indispensable part during summers, which results in oily skin. Hot and humid weather, leads to an increase in the production of oil from the Sebaceous Glands. This in turn, increases the greasiness on the skin. It might be surprising that facial oils are inevitable for oily skin, too as our skin might also be thirsty for its desired nourishment. These nutrients are sucked easily by the dermis, thereby making the skin healthier.

Organic oils for oily skin: Primrose Oil, Jojoba Oil, Grape seed Oil Geranium oil, Rosehip Oil, Neem oil, Patchouli oil.

* Combination Skin: Summers are taxing for those who have an oily T-zone, along with dry patches on the rest of the face. People having combination skin, must use products which maintain a right balance, so that the skin is neither buttery nor brittle. Thus, such people should go in for lighter based oils with anti-bacterial properties that will battle the oily areas and shield the drier ones.

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.
