Deepika Padukone’s primary advice to maintain her glowing skin is to stay the course and keep it simple. While she favours matte makeup, her skin is usually luminous and radiant beneath. “In addition to drinking lots of water and keeping myself hydrated, I avoid using too many products on my skin. I keep it simple,” she was quoted in 2017. Padukone also stressed the importance of complying with her skincare routine no matter how tired or lazy she felt. “I am most particular about removing all my makeup and keeping my skin clean before I go to bed. No matter how tired I am or how hectic my day has been, I always make it a point to take it off.” Check her Youtube video where she shares more tips here- https://youtu.be/fMcEJyWIwE4

Jacqueline Fernandez might be a makeup and hairstyle chameleon, but when it comes to skincare and haircare, she doesn’t stray too far from ingredients found in her kitchen. “My secret is an egg white mask for the hair and a beer rinse for shine,” she once revealed. “It is very important to have a hair massage as your hair should be in top condition before styling. The conditioner you use is all-important—hair needs that extra coating.” Even for skin emergencies, she looks to her fridge. “I often use dahi and honey in a pack to cool and soothe my face.”

Anushka Sharma follows the inside-out philosophy

Anushka Sharma is a proponent of a holistic beauty philosophy. “It’s important to exercise not just to be healthy and fit but it even reflects on your skin and hair,” she told Vogue India in 2015. “I try to do simple but effective things to keep my skin looking healthy and flawless. I drink tons and tons of water. Also I believe in eating right. You are what you eat!” she added.

Priyanka Chopra’s busy schedule calls for heavy makeup on most days. To compensate for the toll it takes on her skin, she follows an indulgent skincare and haircare routine. She revealed, “I think the biggest challenge for both my hair and skin is keeping it healthy. Given the nature of my job, my hair and skin take quite a beating, so it’s important for me to take care of it. I currently use StriVectin moisturiser and Shiseido sunscreen. I have a hectic schedule and my hair goes through a lot on set. She sticks to the basics with her skincare routine too. “You can’t go wrong with basic cleansing, toning, moisturising,” she once said. “I’m committed to following a proper skincare routine because of how badly I mistreat my skin—wearing makeup all day, harsh lighting, etc—and because of the solid beauty advice, my mom gave me growing up.

Sonam Kapoor follows the professionals

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja likes to indulge in professional treatments to care for her skin and body in the best way possible. Way back in 2011, she was quoted “I religiously follow the principle of ‘cleansing-toning-moisturising’. I also swear by facials by Dr Rekha Sheth.” A fan of spa treatments, she let us in on her favourite ones to unwind and relax. “The Royal Spa Facials and body massages at the Myrah Spa are amazing. The Six Senses Spa in Bangkok, Espa at the Leela, and the spa at the Hotel Martinez in Cannes are just a few of my favourites,” she revealed.

There are several leaks that are surfacing on the internet relating to the release of iPhone 12. We couldn’t be more excited! The company is expected to release the smartphone in the second week of October and some details about its India pricing have also surfaced online.

However, recent reports have suggested that the new iPhone 12 series will get five and not four smartphones. The phone is expected to get a wide variety of colour options which includes Black, White, Blue, Red, Yellow and Coral.

No power adapter with iPhone 12? WHAAAAT?

Apple has no plans to include a power adapter or EarPods in the box with the iPhone 12 models, letting the company cut down on production costs and packaging. Instead, Apple may offer a 20W power adapter that can be purchased separately. The USB-C to Lightning cable could get an upgrade, though, with rumours indicating Apple plans to offer a new braided cable design.

Delays due to COVID-19

iPhone 12 models will not ship out in September as usual due to delays caused by the global health crisis this year. Apple instead plans to introduce the iPhones in October, perhaps on October 13, and start shipping them out later that month. Rumours have suggested we can expect a staggered release, and some models might not come out until November.

Keeping all the excitement aside, we know that the difference with this iPhone and the rest won’t be that much. But we will still buy it because it’s a style statement. How else will all the tik-tokers and our beloved celebrities take mirror selfies?

But there’s one thing we are darn happy about- THE PRICE!

Marijuana: How It Effects Your Mind & Body

Published

on

By

Marijuana, weed, pot, dope, grass. They’re different names for the same drug that comes from the cannabis plant. You can smoke it, vape it, drink it, or eat it. Most folks use marijuana for pleasure and recreation. But a growing number of doctors prescribe it for specific medical conditions and symptoms.

Marijuana has mind-altering compounds that affect both your brain and body. It can be addictive, and it may be harmful to some people’s health. Here’s what can happen when you use marijuana:

 

It May Affect Your Mental Health

Not everyone’s experience with marijuana is pleasant. It often can leave you anxious, afraid, or panicked. Using pot may raise your chances for clinical depression or worsen the symptoms of any mental disorders you already have. Scientists aren’t yet sure exactly why. In high doses, it can make you paranoid or lose touch with reality so you hear or see things that aren’t there.

 

Your Thinking May Get Distorted

Marijuana can cloud your senses and judgment. The effects can differ depending on things like how potent your pot was, how you took it, and much marijuana you’ve used in the past. It might:

  • Heighten your senses (colors might seem brighter and sounds might seem louder)
  • Distort your sense of time
  • Hurt your motor skills and make driving more dangerous

 

You May Get Hooked

About 1 in 10 people who use pot will become addicted. That means you can’t stop using it even if it harms your relationships, job, health, or finances. The risk is greater the younger you start marijuana and the more heavily you use it. For instance, the odds of addiction are 1 in 6 if you use pot in your teens. It might be as high as 1 in 2 among those who use it every day.

You could also grow physically dependent on marijuana. Your body could go into withdrawal, leaving you irritable, restless, unable to sleep, and uninterested in eating.

 

It May Impair Your Brain

Marijuana can make it harder for you to focus, learn, and remember things. This seems to be a short-term effect that lasts for 24 hours or longer after you stop smoking.

But using pot heavily, especially in your teen years, may leave more permanent effects. Imaging tests with some — but not all — adolescents found that marijuana may physically change their brains. Specifically, they had fewer connections in parts of the brain linked to alertness, learning, and memory, and tests show lower IQ scores in some people.

 

Your Lungs May Hurt

How Smoking Marijuana Affects Your Lungs

Pot smoke can inflame and irritate your lungs. If you use it regularly, you could have the same breathing problems as someone who smokes cigarettes. That could mean ongoing cough with colored mucus. Your lungs may more easily pick up infections. That’s partly because THC seems to weaken some users’ immune systems.

 

Though some might also say, that Marijuana has ZERO deaths recorded directly linked to it. Which is true. Some may also suggest that alcohol is more dangerous. Which may only seem fair to say. But do you really want to take the gamble?
