10 Shaving Myths Debunked

So let’s see, do you have sensitive skin, no money and a low resistance to pain when it comes to hair removal?

Well, same girl!
After deep contemplation and fits of doubt, I finally decided to take a brave step towards shaving. Yes, although it’s always seen in a bad light but trust me, it’s one of the best things that’s ever happened to me and I’m not even kidding. But before telling you to give it a try, it’s important for me to separate fact from fiction for you:

 

1. Shaving Makes Your Hair Grow Back Thicker And Darker

NO, IT DOESN’T. That’s a mere illusion. It’s just that shaving doesn’t remove your hair from its roots like waxing or epilating does, therefore, when it grows back the hair might seem a bit harder as it is blunt towards the end. Your genetics and hormones determine hair growth. Certainly, it doesn’t grow back darker or thicker as there is no way that shaving your hair would change its texture from the inside.

 

2. Hair Grows Back Quicker.

As I mentioned above that shaving doesn’t remove the hair from the roots, then yes, it might/might not grow back quicker, depending upon your growth. But yes, it does grow back a bit quicker as compared to any other method of hair removal. Also, the underarm hair grows about 50% faster than the hair on your legs, so it’s naturally growing faster with or without shaving.

 

3. Shaving Makes Your Skin Itch.


Some body parts such as legs and underarms are prone to dryness which can irritate your skin and make it sore, thus, you need to take good care of yourself after shaving and during the process. Many women also complain about razor bumps, which can completely destroy the smooth look that one wishes to achieve. Razor bumps occur because the hair starts growing back into the skin, which then becomes inflamed, trapping the hair and forming an angry-looking red bump. To prevent this, one needs to keep the skin hydrated and completely moisturized. It is thus advised to use a good shaving cream along with an after shave or a moisturizer afterwards, which is of extreme importance. Also, shaving one spot over and over will irritate skin—fast. If you’re having trouble with rough spots or stubble, it’s a sign that you need a new razor.

 

4. A Tan Can Be Removed By Shaving.

There is absolutely no way that one can “shave off” their tan. Instead, it helps in exfoliating the skin as it removes the top layer that might be dead or flaky.

 

5. Shaving Causes Ingrown Hair.

Ingrown hair can be caused by any hair removal method be it waxing or shaving. The only thing that can prevent this is clean, exfoliated and healthy skin.

 

6. The Razor Blade Causes More Nicks And Cuts.

Shaving with an old, dull razor blade results in nicks and cuts. Another reason could be if one applies too much pressure or uses a single bladed razor. The key is to apply a light touch and try using a double/triple razor blade that is much more relaxing and gives you a closer shave.

 

7. Shaving Every Day Is Bad For Your Skin.

That’s not true at all. All you’ve got to take care is that you’re moisturizing well afterwards and not letting your skin dry out.
Many people have fast growing hair, in which case they might feel like shaving every day and it’s completely okay. In fact, it might prove great as it exfoliates your skin making it look and feel smoother.

 

8. Razors Should Be Stored In The Shower.

Razors need to be kept somewhere dry. They tend to remain wet in the shower and can be susceptible to bacteria growth and also rust.

 

9. Dry Shaving Is Ok If You’re In A Rush.

 

Not only wrong but unsafe also! Never try this. It will only cause you problems like irritation, dry and flaky skin. Water gives your skin moisture and support and without it, the process gets pretty messy and even a bloody procedure. (Pun intended.)

 

10. You Should Shave As Soon As You Get In The Shower.

 

You must relax and soften the hair before shaving, so make it the last thing on your shower to-do list. The warm water will further help smooth things up!
Here you go, a fast, cheap and a very convenient alternative for hair removal, which when done with the right method and blade can provide with the best results. You don’t have to wait for a month for your hair to grow back enough that you can go for a wax. You no longer have to cancel out your favorite outfits this summer simply because of some hair growing on your skin. You can simply shave it any day and anytime and you’re good to go. HAPPY SHAVING GIRLS!

Starting Your Own Business – Where to Begin?

Having your own business, having everything you’ve ever dreamed of finally working out for you, being an entrepreneur, being your own boss -sounds interesting isn’t it? But is it that easy?

source

It takes a lot of hard work  ahead of you, it takes passion and guts to take risks, to make a change in the world, you need to obsess over your goals, and pour your heart and soul into achieving them.

Many of you I’m sure, have such dreams and are currently not very happy with your lives. Sit back and ask yourselves this one thing. What are you doing to change that? What are you doing to make a difference? What are you celebrating on weekends exactly?

If the answer is nothing, then you know where this is going.
You need to push out the negativity out of your life, how? By pushing out people who keep bringing you down, people who lack faith in you, and people who keep telling you that you cannot overcome your fear and mistakes.

Surround yourself with driven individuals and people who have faith in you. People who are so good at what they do that they make you jealous, who keep you going, who make you believe that you can do better. Because, trust me when I say this, one can always do better than before. Make your circle small and your goals larger.

source

Evaluate your plan. Business is about profit, sure, agreed. But the sole purpose must be to serve the society in a better way, to bring about a change. When you make an effort to contribute to the society, it won’t go unnoticed in the long run.

In the beginning obviously, you’ll have to give in more than you receive. Learn to treat profits are just a reward, never let it be your key driver.

FEARS- keep them but don’t let them get to your head. A little fear of everything is good to some extent. “Will it work, will it not? What if it doesn’t? What next?”

Whenever you’re bombarded with these questions in your mind on a bad day, just make sure to question yourself- “why not?”

There will be tons of hurdles, both physical and mental. From working day and night to sacrificing stuff and obviously- criticism.
How can people who certainly don’t care about you at all, sit back and “not care” while you mind your own business? They’ll keep poking their nose in from time to time, trying to influence the people who do actually care about you. One word – IGNORE. Don’t let the pre-existing social norms block your thinking.

Its important to have that faith in yourself and your plan. If you won’t trust it, why would somebody else? On your way you’ll have to convince people to work with you, its business we’re talking about and it requires team work at all times. First thing in that process is to convince yourself. Don’t push yourself to stand out, just keep doing your thing.

 Convince yourself and don’t linger. No matter how good or bad you today was, keep moving forward. Don’t make excuses. They’re the same as failures. Everyday will be a challenge. Build up the courage to face them. Think of every new morning as a new adventure and enjoy it to the fullest. Its vital to love what you do. Love your work and others it will love you.
Take risks. When you want to change something, its always risky. But keep in mind an idea or a thing that keeps you going. Think of it as – If i survive this, it will bring about a change. For you as well as for others. You can be materialistic and keep in mind a status symbol you want to achieve, anything you wish. But the main point is to find that motivator!
Just, don’t ever give up. You’ll may find yourself at 2 am in the middle of the night thinking about giving up your dreams, that could be your biggest weakness. Have a purpose and never give up on it, no mater what. It will work for you if you work for it. If not today, tomorrow. If not tomorrow, someday.
Dream. Focus. Believe. Work. Inspire. Work more. Have faith. Move forward. Strive for success. Never give up. Get shit done. Be your own version of Harvey Specter.

THE GIRL WITH A S ON HER CHEST !

I’m not here to brag about her achievements, this is just me – a true fan who wants to put my love for her out there, just because its her birthday and she deserves it.

For all those who don’t know her – She’s a youtuber, vlogger, rapper, actress, comedian and an awesome sauce person. Started off her career with youtube in october 2010 with a video titled ” How to tie a side turla bhangra pagh ( turban ) , has now over 6.6 million subscribers and over 862 million views. She even won a streamy award recently but no, thats not how she measures her success. Her success is measured by the amount of lives she changes and how far she spreads the smiles on our faces, us, her TEAM SUPER. Yes, i must mention the obvious thing, that i am one of her proud fans.
About 3 years ago, i came across her video “shit punjabi mothers say” , it was so funny and relatable, i kept scrolling through her channel and i can’t even..

From there on there was no going back.

To be honest, there are so many reasons why i support her, the most important being that she’s an Indian, although based in Canada but still we all know how our society functions. Being a so called youtuber is not a very respectable or even an accepted profession here. She has broken all those barriers and made us all proud! Being a brown girl, she has her faces up on walls all over the world and people who support her from almost every corner of the world, thats SOMETHING! I’d give a huge shoutout to her parents for that too! Secondly, she is absolutely real in all sense. She is not one of the people who try to be somebody else just to be in the limelight, she is what she is and is happy with what she does, which is the main reason people find her so relatable and fun. I really respect that. She is so genuine and has this extremely positive outlook on everything in life which is commendable. Maybe being a psychology student adds to that but seriously. Yes, she also has those bad days where nothing works out, we all have them but the point is she never gives up.
I was a very lucky part of the trip to her unicorn island that happened in Delhi recently and it was just so beautiful. Listening to her journey from depression to youtube to her further dreams, it moved me to tears. Her world is all about colors, unicorns, happiness and sunshine, it just makes me so happy all together. Overcoming the state of depression is not an easy job you know, it takes a hell lot of effort and the way she transformed herself into this amazing person that she finally believes in is quite wonderful.
On a bad day, she helps me believe in myself, she has taught me to fight for my dreams until i have it in my hands, the true meaning of friendship, to never give up and mainly – whats in the combo.

Without any doubts in my heart i can say that she’s the most inspirational soul i’ve ever come across. All the fame and success that she has achieved till date is not sheer luck, its all her hard work and late nights with no sleep that paid off in the end, she literally deserves to be where she is, and all the love she gets, she is worthy of it. I aspire to be worthy to meet her as a friend someday and i’m working for it. Promise.

Such people are rare okay, frankly speaking. Spreading smiles and happy thoughts. She is my rock! I genuinely love her as a person. I really hope she has a dope 27th birthday this year! Happy birthday. If you’re reading this somehow, accept this as a little cheesy token of love. Keep being the quirky unicorn you are!

ONE LOVE SUPERWOMAN THIS IS A WRAP AND ZOOOP!

8. Make your favorite lip color into a cream blush by just adding vaseline in it. What you need to go is apply a little lipstick which you wish to use over your cheeks and just take a little Vaseline and blend it over it. It gives a very natural and beautiful glow to your face. Do try it!

9. Vaseline doesn’t actually clog your pores so you can replace your night cream with it and use it daily. Just make sure your skin isn’t extremely oily. Wash your face with luke warm water and then apply it before going to bed.

10. Apply a very small amount of it to the ends of your hair to make them look healthier and reduce the appearance of split ends. You can also apply a little on your cuticles as it helps your skin to remain moisturized and prevents the skin around your nails to come out giving them a more clean and shiny look.

11. Apply Vaseline on your lips, take a new toothbrush and gently rub across all over your lips. It works great as a exfoliater  and helps to prevent the chappy appearance of your lips, especially in winters.

12. Last but not the least, it works great for your brows and lashes as well! Rub a little on your brows and it’ll act as a kind of brow gel and make it appear even, and add a little on top of your lashes where you apply your liner to grow your eyelases longer and healthier.

So many wonderful things right? Just by the use of a magical jar. What a life saver! You definitely need to keep one jar of petroleum jelly handy now.

5 Reasons Why Gay Marriages Should Be Legalized In India

I personally believe that marriage is a sacred union between man and woman, a form of showcasing their love to their partners and the world. I also believe that our country was founded on the principle that everybody has the right to the pursuit of happiness. And if a man marrying a man or a woman marrying a woman makes them happy then why not? I do not believe it affects anyone negatively. Its not just a religious but a political debate as well. Let me discuss my point of view with you about that-
5 Reasons why gay marriages should be legalized in India-

Population control

source

If we actually look at the country as a whole , the population is touching the skies to be honest.  It seriously needs to be planned and controlled, sounds a bit amusing to some people, but trust me, it’s a very real issue and needs to be looked into. And if you think about it this way , Gay marriages totally support it!

Adoption

source

Not only the population will fall down but also children will be adopted and finally have parents who genuinely will want to take care of them. Who is so heartless to not like a happy family? If you are, shame! Think about it. Bad idea? I beg to differ.

Freedom

source

If it’s a people’s government and we’re free to express ourselves, why is marrying the same sex such a questionable event and considered to be against the Indian culture? I respect people who wish to follow a sort of culture, but please, let other people make their own. Nobody has the right to interrupt and question somebody’s personal decisions. Live and let live. Peace.

Respect

source

As much as you want the society to respect your freedom and opinions, we all must try respect someone else’s too right? Even if you think its absurd , even if you think its not natural, which by the way it is completely, and even if you think it wont work, it doesn’t even matter. Can’t you see? Its none of your business. Learn to mind your own. We can respect and we should, that’s all I am saying.

Ofcourse, LOVE!

source

Marriage is a legal way of binding together two people who are in love and I think its beautiful. Love does not know any language, culture, laws and does not ask the society before happening. It just happens.  Its high time we just accept it that way and spread happiness.If you like something then you should be allowed to put a ring on it. Of course, love is blind, but why are we?

Shoutouts to all the gay and lesbian people out there! I’m with you, do your thing! And please don’t hide under the sheets because of this hypocrite society and taboos. Be yourself and be proud of it. You were born this way.
Maybe the law doesn’t allow your relationship legally, but your hearts do. So don’t be afraid. Someday things will change for the better. Don’t lose hope.

16 Things That We Already Know, But Do We Follow Them?

Here are some things we all know about life, but do we follow them?

Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask, act! Action will delineate and define you.

“Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, a tragedy for the poor.” Shalom Aleichem

Here are 16 things we should already know about life:

source

1. Appreciate what others do for you when they do it. You may not always have them hanging around to make you smile. Show them that you appreciate their efforts.

source

2. Don’t be a bitch and keep talking. Open your ears to what they have to say and listen. In fact, don’t just listen, understand what they have to say. Be giving, try and give back what you get, don’t just sit back and enjoy. Its not a movie show, you didn’t pay for this. You got this because they thought you should have it. Don’t make them regret it, or you will too. You get what you give.

source

3. Be sorry, be sorry because its crucial. Everybody makes mistakes, but you must realize them. Realize them and don’t repeat them. Just don’t be sorry when you don’t need to be. Don’t be sorry for what you feel and  never be sorry for being real. You said what you had to, did what you should, no regrets.

source

4. Be honest, because lies are monstrous. They bite, kill and leave the person bleeding in parts you didn’t even know existed. Be honest about everything. Even if it sounds harsh, spill it. It might hurt, but its always better in the end. Lies are dangerous.

source

5. Be adjusting. The world doesn’t revolve around you, your every wish cannot be a command. Adjust according to them once in a while, don’t be pretentious .

source

6. Pamper them, a lot. It took you effort to get them, the same goes for keeping them. They don’t deserve a dull relationship and neither do you.

source

7.  Respect them in every way you can. If they don’t find it funny,  don’t do it. They’re probably hurting, but they won’t say it. Everybody is not the same and everything cannot be explained. Get that too.

source

8.Talk to them. Tell them everything there is to tell. Let them peep into your messed up soul, not just the upper, worn out layer that you let everyone look into, tell them your precious secrets and get to know theirs.

source

9. Don’t be a cage, let them fly, give them the sky, because they deserve it. Take a risk and let them breathe the air you don’t like. They probably won’t stop liking it if you tell them to, they might just stop liking you. Be careful.

source

10. Be the one you want them to be for you, love them like you want to be loved, hug them like you want to be hugged.  Behave in the exact manner you want somebody to behave with you. It always works.

source

11. Be satisfied. You got what you wanted, time to stick with it honey, be happy with it, be loyal to it. This is what you chose for yourself and you better not complain now.

source

12. Move out of your comfort zone, nothing grows there. Do extraordinary things for them, just for that smile on their face. Make them feel out of this goddamn world, but only if you think they’re the one. Don’t do it otherwise, don’t play. There is nothing worse than making them feel like the one when they’re not.

source

13. Don’t just say it, do it. Show them what you say is real, and show them  that you mean more than you say. Actions speak for themselves. If you say one thing and do something else, how can you expect them to love you unconditionally? Does that seem fair? Nah ah.

source

14. Trust them wholeheartedly, or  don’t. If they love you, you must not care who loves them. You have them, so focus on keeping them. This is something we always forget to do. Love needs nurturing, so do it, and do it right.

source

15. Take time out for them. Take time out, because moments count. Make memories with them, beautiful memories. Give them no gifts but time. Give them the gift of your presence. Don’t delay, make them your priority.

source

16. Try being in their shoes once in a while. They’re not always wrong and they aren’t always right, but try and feel what they’re feeling. Just feel, don’t judge. There are enough people to do that. Everybody needs that one person who loves them and understands them without judging them. Just don’t. It feels terrible.

I’m sure you are tired of hearing this thing over and over again, but trust me, water is the most important part of the process. Start your day with a huge glass of lukewarm water. You can add ingredients like lemon, or honey in it to add a flavor and make it look a bit tempting. Try and drink as many glasses of water you can during the day. To make the process easy, carry a small bottle of water with you everywhere you go. Also, its beneficial to end your day with a glass of water as well. Lukewarm water helps to cleanse your skin and remove all those toxins you’ve either been inhaling or eating. Its so refreshing and so healthy at the same time.

 

BREAKFAST!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and its very important for you to eat a big, but balanced breakfast. Fruits like bananas must be a part of your daily routine. Although they do add calories to your body, 2 bananas in the morning can highly boost your metabolism and give you energy to work for the next 2 hours without any breaks. You can chunk up on other fruits as well, from oranges, to peaches, to apples, of course. The more juicy they are, the more helpful it is! You could even consume them as juices if you like.

 

MEAL PATTERN!

A normal person eats 3 meals a day, some prefer an evening snack, that makes it 4. What you can do to make the process easy is – break your meal pattern, take in smaller quantities but in shorter intervals of time. This way you will not feel hungry constantly and your chances of eating more than you should will fall. Add salads to your meal, or even make them your meal if you can. To make it fun, look up what amazing stuff you could do with them. There are so many varieties these days, I’m sure you’ll find something of your taste.

SAY NO TO BOOZE!

Stay away from booze as much as you can as it tends to make us lethargic and keep in mind that alcohol is a diuretic, meaning that it causes water loss and dehydration. Along with this water loss, you lose important minerals, such as magnesium, potassium, calcium and zinc. Which isn’t affordable at all! Occasional drinking isn’t harmful though.

POSTURE!
Work on your posture while you sit and stand, avoid slouching! It doesn’t work well, both for your personality, as well as your health. Standing upright would boost your confidence and its one of the best things to do for your health.

 

EXERCISE!

I’m sorry but you just can’t run away from a workout. No pain, no gain, remember? You don’t need to exercise aggressively, start with a few basic exercises. Go for  run in the morning, or cycling, then slowly move to squats, push ups and even cardio. No matter which exercises you choose to start your day with, try and be regular. Also practice at least 30 minutes daily and its preferable to do it all in one go!

 

SACRIFICE!

I won’t suggest, or even expect you to completely cut out on junk all at once, but we all can minimize the intake. Eat a few bites of your favourite chocolate if you want, its allowed to have a sweet tooth and satisfy it occasionally. But do sacrifice on stuff like white rice or white bread as much as you can. Switch to brown rice instead!

 

DONT GIVE UP!

Once you’re on it, please don’t back out. Don’t betray the body you’re living in. Never give up on it, or on anything for that matter. It will hurt and require sacrifice and IT WILL TAKE TIME! Be patient, you can do it! I know you can. “Motivate the mind; body will follow.”
