Don’t sacrifice your skincare when you travel long days on germ-ridden planes, clogging your pores, and drying out your skin that’s when you need it most! Instead, make a few handy swaps to ensure you’re bringing along your trusted travel skincare and avoiding any possible spills. Whether you’re off to relax on the best beaches of the world, or you’re off on an adventure to harvest your own black pearls, packing your skincare for travel can be as painless as possible. To make your beauty routine easy to travel with, we’ve gathered the best tips below.

Pre-Soak Pads


Make a few handy swaps to ensure you’re bringing along your trusted travel skincare and avoiding any possible spills.


There’s no better feeling than coming back from a long day of travel and doing a total cleanse with toner or micellar water, but those bulky bottles aren’t exactly travel-friendly. Instead, take cotton pads and a small container and pre-soak your pads with any toners and cleansers from your skincare routine. If you can’t find a small container suitable for this, you can also use a Ziploc bag. This will keep them from drying out and is perfect for travel.

Use Contact Cases

Utilize contact cases to put small amounts of moisturizers and eye creams. Don’t risk getting your skincare products tossed by TSA with oversized products. This allows you to bring along smaller amounts of creams in fewer bottles and is best for products you only need a dot or two of. Save this trick for eye creams and ultra-rich moisturizers but skip for anything that is applied liberally.

Swap Out for Balm Cleansers

Instead of packing your oil cleaners in a pump bottle that is begging for a spill, instead, swap out for a solid balm cleanser. Pick a balm cleanser that’s below TSA regulation size for carry-ons to ensure no issues. You will guarantee no messy spills in your luggage and they are extremely easy to use. Rub the balmy texture between your fingers until you work it into an oil and use it as a normal face wash from there. The oily texture will break down any makeup and clear your pores.

Utilize Eye Droppers

To pack small amounts of facials oils without the messy bottles, use spill-proof plastic eye dropper bottles to travel with instead. You can find these dropper bottles easily at organizing stores or online. Choose oils and serums that pack a punch to rescue skin after a long haul flight. Gemstone inspired skincare can seriously revive dull skin after a day of travel.

Mix and Match

To save time and space for skincare, mix some of your favorite serums and creams into your moisturizer to give your skin an extra boost. This also allows you to lighten the load traveling with fewer bottles. Consider similar consistencies when you’re mixing and matching. For example, try mixing sunscreen and moisturizers. SPF should be integrated into your skincare routine whether you’re spending your vacation on the beaches of Tahiti or in the mountains skiing.

Traditional players are very strong in the consumer laptop market.

By Md Waquar Haider

When popular smartphone brands like Xiaomi and realme entered the laptop market in India last year, they were expected to shake the existing giants, specifically under the Rs 50,000 category. However, chip shortage and supply crunch have somewhat dented their plans to make a significant mark to date. According to industry experts, the issue with smartphone makers entering the laptop category is two-fold. The first one is a massive supply crunch in the laptop component market and only big brands are able to get volume and supplies.

The other factor is that the traditional players are very strong in the consumer laptop market. Top 3 players control more than 70 per cent of the market and strong portfolio, distribution, and channel reach as well as brand marketing has helped them massively. "New brands can surely make a dent in the consumer laptop market but are challenged by supply issues right now. Watch out for them in 2022 as and when supply situation eases up," Navkendar Singh, Research Director, Client Devices & IPDS, IDC India told IANS.

Dominated by HP Inc, Lenovo and Dell, the traditional PC market (inclusive of desktops, notebooks, and workstations) in India continued to be robust as the shipments grew by 50.5 per cent year-over-year (YoY) in the second quarter (Q2), according to IDC. Notebook PCs continue to hold more than three-fourth share in the overall category and grew 49.9 per cent YoY in 2Q21, reporting a fourth consecutive quarter with over 2 million units. Desktops also indicated a recovery as shipments grew 52.3 per cent YoY after recording the lowest shipments of the decade in 2Q20.

According to Prabhu Ram, Head, Industry Intelligence Group, CMR, driven by the pandemic and the associated accelerated pivot to remote work, learn and unwind culture, PCs have been witnessing heightened demand. "Despite the current supply chain constraints, PCs are here to stay in the new never normal. In the run-up to the festive season, established PC market leaders will continue to leverage their brand salience and gain market share," Ram told IANS.

The research, led by researchers at the University of Plymouth, showed that antidepressant mirtazapine offered no improvement in agitation for people with dementia

A drug used to treat agitation in people with dementia is no more effective than a placebo, and might even increase mortality, according to a new study published in The Lancet. The research, led by researchers at the University of Plymouth, showed that antidepressant mirtazapine offered no improvement in agitation for people with dementia -- and was possibly more likely to be associated with mortality than no intervention at all.

Agitation is a common symptom of dementia, characterized by inappropriate verbal, vocal or motor activity, and often involves physical and verbal aggression. Non-drug patient-centered care is the first intervention that should be offered but, when this doesn't work, clinicians may move to a drug-based alternative.
