Cleanse Your Face Daily: Cleansing and exfoliating your skin during summers is essential as the heat and direct sunlight steal your skin’s hydration, creating dead cells. Also, your skin tries to maintain its temperature and make more sebum that blocks the pores leading to acne. Cleansing your skin twice daily with a gentle foaming face wash will help wipe the dead skin cells and debris out. Try TAC — The Ayurveda Co. range of foaming face washes which come with an in-built brush that helps cleaning up the pores while gently massaging.

Toners to Tame Pores: Enlarged pores are an open invitation for dirt, build-up, and eventually, skin issues. The skin produces extra sebum when exposed to heat, making the skin oily and irritated which can lead to clogged pores. Refreshing toners help tone and tighten your skin and pores.

"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.
