Dharamsala: Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama said that seeking peaceful solutions at the source of the conflict would lead to long term solutions, even though he felt it was wonderful that many nations would be taking in refugees who fled their countries following conflicts.

“It’s wonderful that several countries will be taking refugees in, but in the long run, we have to find a peaceful solution to the conflicts in the countries they come from,” said a statement quoting the Nobel Peace laureate on his official website on Saturday.

Replying to a question from a reporter in Cambridge on Friday, he said: “We must make an effort to bring about peace.”

Asked if violence was ever justified in the name of religion, he replied: “Never.”

And as to whether war was ever justified, he said: “It’s difficult to say. The Second World War defeat of Nazism was beneficial and the Korean War saved South Korea, but it would be hard to say the same about the Vietnam War.”

The Dalai Lama has lived in India since fleeing his homeland in 1959. The Tibetan administration in exile is based in this hill town in Himachal Pradesh.

Facial skin is more delicate than the skin on the rest of the body and demands a lot of attention and care.

By N. Lothungbeni Humtsoe

There is nothing better than a healthy glowing. What people dont tell you is that make-up also looks better on healthy rejuvenated skin. A lot of focus is given to cleansing and moisturising, but face massage is equally important. Massaging the face increases blood circulation and relaxes the skin, taking the stress and tiredness right out. Face massages can also help in collagen synthesis to ensure skin brightening and smoothening the fine lines. One should massage their face 2 to 3 times a week to get the desired results.

Rachit Gupta, Director, OxyGlow Cosmetics Pvt. Ltd. shares, "Facial skin is more delicate than the skin on the rest of the body and demands a lot of attention and care. Hectic lifestyles make the facial skin lose the sheen and natural glow. The solution for common problems like patchy skin tone, dullness, acne, scars or spots, premature ageing, etc is to include face massages with natural gels in one's routine. Gels are recommended especially as they suit varied skin types and do not harm the skin. They lightly moisturise and bring back the shine of the face. Just 5 minutes of care can give wonderful results not just in terms of a healthier skin but as a great stress buster."
