I read on the internet that men use only one or two grooming product and basically a body wash is enough for almost everything. Well I might be different because I use quite a lot of products. I switched to liquid body wash once but again came back to a good quality bath soap. However I always use a face wash for washing my face and I never use a soap no matter how good it is. My choice for face wash changes by season, in winters I have extremely dry face and these days I would choose a face wash that is gentle and does not have any scrubbing effect because that will cause the skin to get irritated. Garnier has a got a new face wash called pureActive with Neem which is perfect for winters. Neem is natural antiseptic and hence it’s not harsh and prevents many skin problems that can happen due to polluted air or infections.
In summers my face becomes very oily and sometimes I can see few pimples appearing too. For pimple prevention the best face wash of your choice should be the one with salicylic acid. I use Garnier AcnoFight facewash when I see pimples appearing. This face wash also has scrubbing effect so it helps to get excess oil cleared off the face. Excess oil on the face can clog the pores and lead to pimples. Our facial skin has oil glads hidden under the layer of skin and these oil glads are needed to keep our skin healthy and moisturized. It’s all fine till these glads secret oil at normal rate but sometimes due to hormonal imbalance at teenage or health problems in adults these glads may over secret the oil and this is the main cause of pimples. At teenage there are hormonal changes occurring and that is why some of us got pimples at teenage. However if you are adult and still getting pimples then it’s a sign of health problem and should be checked. Using a face wash can help clear the symptoms but it’s also important to find the root cause and fix it.
Proper diet can greatly reduce the chances of pimples occurring. Reduce fried and oily food intake and drink plenty of water to flush out the toxins. Citrus fruits are also good for skin and having a glass of orange juice in the morning instead of coffee can be a great way to start your day in a healthier way.
New year got a drastic change in my life as I took a job as part time computer teacher in January this year. Why I did this? there are many reasons. First and biggest reason for this was that my life was getting stale with almost no social interaction and as everyone would agree that sitting in front of computer and working for long hours is not fun.
Its true that more you meet people, the more you want to get away from them and that was the reason that at one point I thought of only being a full time freelance web developer. But soon I realized that social interaction is important for both mental and physical health. There has to be a balance and to make this balance what could be better than becoming a teacher?
Now everyday I go to school, spend some quality time interacting with my colleagues and teaching a class with 45+ students, its just feels great. It all started one morning when I got a call from AMU that I am selected by the selection committee and I can join any time I want, honestly I never expected to get this job as in the interview I told that I have zero teaching experience but I think because of being overqualified for this post and due to my confidence they offered me this job.
