In our current altered lifestyle, life without perpetual handwashing and sanitizing are unfathomable.

With most Skincare routines today, the focus is usually on the face while the hands are subjected to secondary treatment or an afterthought. We must remember that each time we wash our hands, they lose moisture, become dry. In our current altered lifestyle, life without perpetual handwashing and sanitizing are unfathomable. Here's why investing in a good hand cream is the absolute need of the hour.

* Hydrating:
The skin on the back of our hands is thinner and has fewer oil glands, making it more prone to dryness. In comparison, the skin on our palms is a lot thicker, so for moisture to penetrate this area, it is advisable to use a hand cream that uses efficacious formulations that are infused with the goodness of Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid and promises hydration with anti-bacterial properties.

* Cleansing: Hands are undeniably the most precious assets that are used to access and communicate with the world. More often than not, they are often subject to invisible bacteria and germs. Excessive use of hand wash or sanitizer may damage the sensitive skin of your hands; thus, it is recommended to opt for a high-quality anti-bacterial hand cream that can serve the dual purpose of hydration and protection against germs.

* Combat Ageing: What the face conceals, the hands give-away, holds when it comes to matters of age. Our hands spend just as much time exposed to external elements as our faces and when we neglect to care for them, we leave them defenseless against the effects of aging. A dermatologist recommended hand cream will help boost moisture levels and skin elasticity while combating pigmentation, dehydration, and premature wrinkling.

* Therapy in a tube -- The ritual of applying a hand cream can prove to be a peaceful experience and a quick escape from a hectic day. The gentle act of massaging the hands as they soak in all the hydration is known to calm the nerves, alleviate anxiety and unclog mental pores. This short 'me-time break lends us a moment of self-reflection that can do wonders not just for our hands but also our mind.

The process of excessive handwashing can make cuticles dry and flaky, making them vulnerable to bacterial infections. Applying a good quality hand cream will ensure that the cuticles and nails are nourished and well looked after, making them appear healthy, bright and shiny.

Using a hand cream is a healthy lifestyle practice, that will go a long way in ensuring that our hands stay protected and well-hydrated. Charm is hand cream is available in different varieties, you can purchase them online. (IANS/AD).

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people

When a baby is born in an Indian household-they invite hijra to shower the newborn with their blessings for their blessings confer fertility, prosperity, and long life on the child. But when that child grows up we teach them to avert their eyes when a group of hijras passes by, we pass on the behaviour of treating hijras as lesser humans to our children. Whenever a child raises a question related to gender identity or sexuality they are shushed down. We're taught to believe that anything "deviant" and outside of traditional cis-heteronormativity is something to be ashamed of. This mentality raises anxious, scared queer adults who're ashamed of their own identity, and adults who bully people for "queer behaviour".

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people. They worship the Hindu goddess of chastity and fertility, Bahuchara Mata. Most hijras, but not all, choose to undergo a castration ceremony known as "nirvana" in which they remove their male genitalia as an offering to their goddess. The whole community is vibrant with hundreds of people with hundreds of ways of expression, the true identity of a hijra is complex and unique to each individual. In India, hijras prefer to refer to themselves as Kinner/Kinnar as it means the mythological beings who excel at singing and dancing.
