5 Things To Never Ever Do In A Local Neighbourhood Salon, In Order To Avoid A Bad Haircut

While the COVID situation is here to stay for a while (sigh!), life as we know it is getting back to normal - for better or for worse.  While we'll still advise you to steer clear of salons, they are slowly opening up and before long, we will end up thronging them. Before doing that, let's at least make sure we come out with a good haircut. © iStock Getting a good haircut in a neighbourhood salon is a tricky affair, and holding the barber entirely responsible for the outcome is not fair. 
Here are 5 things you should swear to never do, the next time you're in a local neighbourhood salon. This will guarantee you a great haircut, every time. 1. Going In Without Knowing What You Want © iStock Are you one of those people who have no idea about what you want but end up unhappy when the barber gives you a haircut of his own choice? How can you blame him? 
Research, think, and figure out what hairstyle will look good on you, or at least make you happy. Have at least a basic idea, if not the specifics. This will always set the groundwork for a satisfactory haircut. 2. Going In Without A Picture Reference © iStock After you have figured out what haircut you'd like, the next step is ensuring the barber is also aware of it. The best way to let him know? Show him a picture. It's as simple as that. There would be no scope of confusion that way. 
Also, how hard is it to do a basic google search and screenshot a picture before going inside the salon? You can do it right there, sitting on the chair too. 3. Not Communicating With Him Clearly Before Letting Him Touch The Scissors © iStock Because we have been sort of brought up the way we have, we tend to not take charge of 'seemingly trivial' but important affairs like a haircut. As a result, we just enter the salon and sit on the chair, expecting the barber to read our minds and just do his thing. 
Most of us never bother to explain what we want in detail. A barber has hundreds of customers, and he will find out the easiest way to get done with his job unless you speak up and give him specific instructions. 4. Mistaking Your Barber For An Expert Hairstylist © iStock Even though this point probably reeks of elitism at the first glance, it has only and only got to do with aesthetics, and not expertise. Our local barbers are probably the world's most skilled technicians when it comes to haircuts, but letting them decide what hairstyle would suit you, is not the wisest move. 
They know their craft, and some of them may even be better than professional hairstylists - however, expecting them to know what hairstyle would suit your face and your personal preferences, is not fair.  If you're letting them decide your haircut for you, also be prepared to be happy with whatever is the outcome. 5. Watching TV/Sleeping/Zoning Out While On The Chair © iStock Don't we all love doing this? Please don't, though. There are chances that your barber is potentially ruining your haircut, and it is not very difficult to stop him right then and there and salvage what is left - but only if you're aware. 
Sometimes, a single glance of the scissors cutting through or a single touch of the trimmer is enough to tell you that things are going downhill, and a timely 'AAAAAH!' is always preferable to a heart attack later after waking up and seeing it in the mirror. Save the nap for when he finishes the haircut and starts the massage. Avoid these little things and you'll never have a bad haircut again. Good luck!

6 Exquisite Watches From Prabhas’ Massive Collection That Show He Really Likes His Timepieces

We know that actors and celebrities love their watches, and we have seen most of them wear some really exquisite timepieces.  But, there are a few actors, say, Ram Charan for example, who have a really impressive collection. © Twitter/only_prabhasfan Another such actor, who has a really insane and super-cool collection of watches is Prabhas. 
The Baahubali star indeed is a Baahubali when it comes to watches, it seems. He is known to have a soft spot for exquisite timepieces. But some of the pieces from his collection, are watches that horologists all over the world would go nuts over. We pick 6 watches from his massive collection that have caught our attention over the years: 1. Hublot Sang Bleu All Black - Rs 14,23,000 © Hublot Hublot seems to be a favourite among our celebrities, all thanks to its legacy, and the quality of their watches. 
The Sang Bleu in All Black is a very limited collection that they had launched a few years back. Apparently, only 200 pieces were made, and Prabhas is the proud owner of one. 2. Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu All White - Rs 13,00,000 © Twitter/only_prabhasfan If you thought the Sang Blue in All Black was impressive, wait till you see the white version. This one too had a limited production run of under 200 pieces and was made using the highest grade of ceramic. 
Although the movement and the finer mechanical aspects of the watch are basically the same as the all-black one, the construction of the case and the aesthetics in the white one, are totally different 3. Bell & Ross BR 03-92 - Rs 3,75,000 © BCCL Not many celebrities in India tend to go for watches from Bell & Ross. Unless of course, they are horologists and really know their watches. 
Bell & Ross make some fine pieces and are known for their boxy aesthetic. Their signature style for a case usually involves a circular face set in a square frame. This gives their watches a rather tough and robust appeal.  No wonder Prabhas went for one. 4.  Louis Vuitton Tambour Regatta Navy - Rs 3,70,000 © Twitter/only_prabhasfan Louis Vuitton isn’t exactly known for their watches. But then, when has that ever stopped a luxury, high fashion brand to not capitalise on an ever-growing trend?  Their Tambour Regatta Navy surely is a fine looking watch, although not much can be said about their legacy as a watchmaker.  Their legacy as a high fashion brand though, makes the piece one of those rare watches that do not come from expert watchmakers but are still worth collecting. 5. Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 18CT Gold Case- Rs 27,00,000 © Twitter/only_prabhasfan A watch collection is simply incomplete without a Rolex, especially if the collector can afford to buy one. Well, Prabhas has quite a few. 
One that caught our eye was the Cosmograph Daytona in gold, and a black dial. Rolex watches are just exquisite, and a great piece to invest in if one can afford to.  They almost always increase in value, as long as you take good care of them, and they are not their basic pieces. 6. Rolex Yachtmaster II In Gold - Rs 28,57,000 © Rolex Finally, we have the Yachtmaster II in Gold, again from Rolex. Although not the most expensive Rolex in the watch, this one, nonetheless is an exquisite piece. 
This one too has an 18CT gold casing, which makes it look just exquisite. For some, it may come across as a little gaudy and flashy, but for those who like a bit of bling, this is just perfect.

Only Die-Hard Kolkata Knight Riders Fans Can Score More Than 6 Points In This IPL Quiz

After a sensational start to their Indian Premier League thanks to Brendon McCullum’s unbeaten 158-run knock in the very first match of the league ever, Kolkata Knight Riders managed to win two titles, both under the leadership of Gautam Gambhir. They have been a good team if not great and have often found themselves making it to the Playoffs. Last season, the KKR franchise missed out on being in the top four thanks to a lower run-rate than SunRisers Hyderabad. With renewed motivation and a new head coach in McCullum, himself, the team wishes to make a comeback to their top-4 spot and hopefully contest for the title as well. Here’s a quiz for their die-hard fans:

Only Die Hard SunRisers Hyderabad Fans Can Score More Than 6 Points In This IPL Quiz

Rising from the ashes of a terminated Deccan Chargers team, SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) was founded in 2012 but reached their maximum potential in 2016 under the captaincy of Australia batsman David Warner. While Warner had his best season in the Indian Premier League, pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar became the first of his squad to win the honorary Purple Cap for his distinguished bowling expertise that season. It was also the only season which brought the title to Hyderabad ever since the Deccan Chargers won it in 2009. Last season despite winning only one of their last five matches, SRH made it to the Playoffs where they were defeated by the Delhi Capitals in the eliminator. David Warner won the orange cap this season as well. If you are a true SRH fan, then this is a quiz for you:

6 Reasons Why Adult Men Get Acne Well Into Their 30s & 40s, Despite Taking Care Of Their Skin

There is this common perception that preteens and teenagers are the only people who have issues with acne and pimples, that once men cross the age of 25, they do not have to deal with skin issues such as these. © iStock Believe it or not, acne and pimples in adult men is far more common than what you would imagine. But why exactly do we get pimples and acne, as late as in our 30s & in some cases, 40s? © iStock We list out some of the most common reasons for acne in adult men, and what you should be doing about that:
1. Your Diet © iStock The first and foremost reason is your diet. As teenagers, most of us were predisposed to having to deal with pimples. As adults, however, a lot of it actually boils down to our diet. 
If you follow a diet that is rich in fat, and carbs and lacks some key micronutrients and is deficient in protein, you will get pimples for sure. Pro Tip: Consult a dietitian, and plan out a balanced diet that is catered to you. This will also allow you to cut out certain things that your body doesn’t really need, like certain types of fats. 2. Your Smoking Habits © iStock There is simply no denying the fact that smoking cigarettes can bring you a world of trouble. It has a lot of carcinogens that cause your body to react adversely. Furthermore, it takes a toll on your skin. 
Benzene & ethylene oxide, for example, two carcinogens found in cigarettes deplete the skin cell’s tendency to retain moisture.  Pro Tip: Apart from obviously cutting out smoking, try a grooming routine that detoxes your skin. There are a number of sheet masks and facemasks that you can try to restore your skin at a cellular level. 3. Dietary Supplements © iStock Most of us go in for protein supplements and dietary supplements, on the recommendation of our trainers. 
Do keep in mind that it is imperative that the supplement you take, suits you. Any mismatch or allergic reaction, and you’ll end up with pimples and zits.  Pro Tip: Consult your physician, or proper dietitian before you invest in dietary supplements. Don’t rely on your trainers or the dietitian at a gym to give you accurate advice, or all the necessary information that you might need. 4. Hormonal Imbalances © iStock One major reason why men in their 30s & 40s get pimples is because of hormonal imbalances. 
Now, this can be a hereditary disorder or the result of some other physical ailment. It may also be the result of some medications that you might be on.  Pro Tip: You have to consider your doctor if this is the case, there is simply no other way around this. With the help of your doctor, find out what is causing this imbalance and work on its resolution. 5. Allergens © iStock Humans develop allergies all through their lives, but most of us believe that we get to know about our allergies when we are young. 
In adult men, allergens can flare up during a change of weather, or a change in environment. Pro Tip: Consult your physician, and observe if the onset of the pimple is cyclical by any chance. Any which way, your physician will tell you the best way to proceed, if indeed your pimples are the results of an allergic reaction. 6. Wrong Grooming Products © iStock Men have different skin types, but more often than not, we tend to ignore our skin type when buying skincare products and cosmetics. 
And if we tend to go for generic, run of the mill grooming products, chances are, they have ingredients that can wreak havoc on our skin. Pro Tip: Visit a dermatologist to identify what your skins type is, and if you are sensitive to some commonly used ingredient. After your consultation, go for products that suit your skin, and your sensitivity.

Struggling With A Patchy Moustache? 6 Ways To Deal With It Instead Of Shaving It Off

We have gone in-depth to discuss ways to fix a patchy beard and make it look thicker and denser. But what about a patchy moustache? Besides your beard, even the moustache, sometimes, tends to grow in an uneven manner.  If you are someone who is dealing with the same issue, here are some quick tips that will help you fix it: 1. Let It Grow © iStock Just like you would let your beard grow, the same goes for your moustache as well. Before you decide that it's patchy or not, give it time to fully grow. 
In some cases, the hair follicles are lighter in shade, which can make the moustache look patchy. Hence, you need to be patient with the process, before deciding to rule it out completely. 2. Shaving Your Moustache Won't Work © iStock If there's one misnomer that men still assume to be true sometimes, it's that shaving often can make your hair grow thicker. This is a myth that you need to put an end to. 
Moustache needs time to grow and going back to where you started, will not make the patch disappear or help you grow it thicker. It's as simple as that. 3. Minoxidil May Work © iStock Loaded with Biotin, which is Vitamin B7, Minoxidil is responsible for helping the hair and nails grow. 
The active ingredients found in it can help some men with the growth of their hair. But, before you head to a drugstore and get minoxidil, consult your dermatologist to know if this is the best solution for you or not. 4. Combs Can Do Wonders © iStock A moustache comb works wonder and isn't something you should sneeze at, especially if you are dealing with a patchy moustache. 
This brush is specifically designed for the thick whiskers. It helps train the hair and brings in more control and hence when you use it regularly, the follicles that usually curl back will start growing to the side. This way your hair will cover up the stray patches, giving it a streamlined appearance. 5. Moustache Wax Is Your Best Bet © iStock Before you use moustache wax, ensure that you wash it with a mild cleanser. Once done, dry your moustache and apply the moustache wax all across to hide any visible patches. 
Check for evenness now but don't keep working the wax too much as it can stiffen up your follicles. 6. Trimming Your Moustache  © iStock Just like your beard grows at a different rate, so does your moustache. 
To make your moustache look balanced and neat, make use of a beard trimmer and clean up the lines. This will help get all your hair strands of the same length and also reduce the appearance of the patch on your moustache.  Do this only after you have patiently grown the moustache into an epic stache!

China Plays Punjabi Songs On Loudspeakers For Indian Troops & People Are Calling It Bad Tactics

The tension amidst Indo-China around LAC is only rising and recently, we got to know that troops of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army have reportedly installed loudspeakers at Finger 4 and have been playing Punjabi songs for Indian soldiers.
This happened soon after the Indian troops were carrying out round the clock patrols and were at a dominating height near the Finger-4 which directly overlooks the positioning of the Chinese troops. © BCCL Not only this, the positioning of where the Chinese troops have installed the loudspeakers is under the surveillance of the Indian Army.
This tactic came after three firing incidents that took place in the same area in the past twenty days. Also, around September 8, an incident took place near Finger 4 where more than 100 rounds were fired between the troops of both countries. © BCCL The Indian Army was not at all amused by Chinese military tactics and the playing of songs was just a way to soften up the troop's guard who was fiercely contested on the mountainous spur.
Here’s what people on the internet have to say about the Chinese troop’s tactics- Better than that, the anti-communist songs by Nationalist Chinese Revolutionary Army from '40s ....they're very, very provocative — Saffron Crusader (@TheeEndIsNeigh) September 16, 2020Indian Army should respond by playing Arnab's drug do mujhe drug do video. — Drunk Journalist (@drunkJournalist) September 16, 2020Bihar regiment is standing there. They should play Bhojpuri songs. — SR Lakshmi Narasimhan (@narasimhan_sr) September 16, 2020So now they are mocking the forces — Anjali_Sharma☮️ (@TribeccaAngie) September 17, 2020India should put loudspeaker and play dhinchak poojas song china wapis kabhi nahi ayyega — Mask (@Mr_LoLwa) September 16, 2020Meanwhile Xi Jin dances on our tunes🤟 pic.twitter.com/y8BwzvOofQ — Bobby Gandhi 🇮🇳 (@BobbyGandhi3) September 16, 2020According to a former Indian Army Chief, the PLA used the same tactics in 1962, “But the Indian troops were foxed about the Punjabi songs on Finger 4. Maybe, the PLA thought that troops from Punjab were holding on to the higher heights of Finger 4 feature.”

We Can’t Wait For The Open-World Harry Potter Game ‘Hogwarts Legacy’ To Finally Launch Next Year

Warner Bros. Games have finally announced a new Harry Potter RPG that was leaked for years and is set to launch sometime in 2021. The game is set before the events of ‘Harry Potter’ and is called ‘Hogwarts Legacy’. The game will be available to play for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.  © Avalanche-Studios You will be playing the role of a witch or a wizard and go on your own adventure at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Your journey will be dangerous as you try to uncover a hidden truth of the wizarding world. 
Being an RPG, you will learn new spells, combat skills and even have companions with you to tackle magical beasts and deadly foes. You will also have multiple choice missions where you will need to make tough choices to advance the main story.  © Avalanche-Studios The game is set in the late 1800s and many fantasy creatures were shown including dragons that you may have to tame. We also got to see some key locations from the movies such as the village of Hogsmeade, Snape’s classroom, the dining hall and the school’s big courtyard. Since it is an open-world game, you will be visiting new locations in and around the school and possibly other places as well. 
Head of the story for the game at Avalanche Studios, Adrian Ropp, spoke about how the game will use the PS5’s graphical power and DualSense controller features. “With innovative high definition graphics, a player can practically feel the terror of Inferi bearing down upon them, sense the ground rumbling beneath them as a herd of angry centaurs surrounds them,” he said in a PlayStation Blogpost.  Ropp added that “even duelling against a deadly dark witch takes on a new level of realism thanks to the controller’s ability to imbue sound and touch into every moment.” Hogwarts Legacy was announced at Sony’s PS5 Showcase event last night alongside multiple other games. We saw gameplay footage of Spider-Man: Miles Morales and a surprise announcement of Final Fantasy XVI.

Looks Like Call Of Duty's Most Popular Battle Royale Is Coming To Mobile & Our Phones Are Ready

It's been a while since PUBG Mobile was banned in India. The game's ban has left millions of mobile gaming enthusiasts clueless as to which game to move to next. In case you haven't been able to find a PUBG Mobile replacement yet, then there's some good news. According to a new report, it looks like Call Of Duty's most popular battle royale game is coming to mobile phones. There's no official confirmation, but there's solid evidence that the game could be coming to the mobile phone soon. © Activision A job listing (since removed) recently showed up online. The listing revealed the Activision is looking for an executive producer to work on a new mobile game. Interestingly, the listing revealed that they're looking for someone for 'WZM', which could most likely be an abbreviation for Warzone mobile.
Since the listing is not live anymore, we suggest you head over to the source link at the end to read excerpts from the listing. The excerpts definitely spill a lot of beans that point towards the possible mobile port of the game. Why Make Another Battle Royale? © Activision Yes, the COD: Mobile already offers a battle royale mode on mobile phones, but we think Warzone has a lot more to offer in terms of the gameplay. We're talking about a highly popular PC/Console game here, so you know what to expect.
Also since PUBG Mobile has now been banned in India, we definitely won't say no to a new battle royale title, especially if it's Warzone. Our phones are ready for it, so let's just hope for the best. Source: PC Gamer

From Demolition Of Her Office To Y-Level Security, 10 Things Kangana Said In Her Fiery Interview

Kangana Ranaut continues to make headlines with her controversial statements on matters ranging from Sushant Singh Rajput's death to Bollywood's alleged drug nexus to calling Mumbai “PoK” and so much more. 
Recently, in her interview with Times Now, Ranaut unabashedly answered questions about BMC's demolition of her office, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut's remarks and her controversial comments about Mumbai, among other issues.  Here we have listed out 10 things that Kangana Ranaut said in her fiery interview amid the ongoing controversy:  1. On Sanjay Raut Using “Haraamkhor” For Her Stating that she wants Raut to apologise to her, Kangana asserted that as the highest-paid actress in the industry, she had not only offered employment to the people she hired and who benefitted from her movies, but was also among those who paid the highest taxes in the nation. She then went on to question how exactly did Sanjay Raut contribute to the economy.  Check out the clip here:  Watch Kangana’s most befitting response to ‘H#@MKHOR’ slur.

I am the highest paid actress, gave Rs 15-20 cr taxes. My work provides employment to several people: Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam), Actor tells Navika Kumar on #FranklySpeakingWithKangana. pic.twitter.com/gyOvxl5Lwe — TIMES NOW (@TimesNow) September 16, 2020 2. On Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray  © BCCL “I want to ask Uddhav Thackeray, that he inherited everything from Balasaheb Thackeray. But I want to ask him, what about the core values of Shiv Sena. Today, it has become Sonia Sena... Who is muftkhor then? I told you that everything I earn is being utilised for Maharashtra,” Kangana said.  3. On Calling Mumbai, “Like PoK” “I was told they will break my face, I am haraamkhor and I said 'this doesn't seem like Mumbai, it seems like PoK'- then they took advantage of that and tried to gather a mob to lynch me. I said PoK, I should have said Syria. When Rahul Gandhi says India is like Syria, nobody lynches him. Nobody breaks his house. What is the matter with these people?,” Kangana said.   After I bust the drug racket,political parties joined hands with some from industry. Hadn't I got the security I would have been lynched like the sadhus: Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam), Actor, tells Navika Kumar on Frankly Speaking. | #FranklySpeakingWithKangana pic.twitter.com/lqmsUOP2o6 — TIMES NOW (@TimesNow) September 16, 2020 Even as she faces immense backlash for comparing Mumbai to PoK, the 33-year-old actor did not budge from her stance, tweeting that she was right on the day she left the city.  जब रक्षक ही भक्षक होने का एलान कर रहे हैं धड़ियाल बन लोकतंत्र का चीरहरण कर रहे हैं,
मुझे कमज़ोर समझ कर
बहुत बड़ी भूल कर रहे हैं!
एक महिला को डरा कर उसे नीचा दिखाकर,
अपनी इमेज को धूल कर रहे हैं!! — Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) September 14, 2020 4. On Receiving Y-Grade Security From The Centre  © gulte “The way they got Sadhus lynched, they're trying to collect a mob around me and lynch me to death. I saw that. The whole country could see this. That's when my sister approached the Home Minister's office and expressed concerns that 'these people are trying to lynch her, turn the entire state against her, that too based on blatant lies'. Two days later, we got a call from the Home Minister's office telling us, "you got to be very careful. Your threat is real. And you'll be getting Y+ security". Ever since nothing has been the same,” she said.  5. On The BMC Demolition She compared the demolition to 'getting raped', stating that a house is like an extension of yourself.  “They (BMC) broke the lock, they completely broke the house down. Unhone mere ghar ka taala toda aur kam se kam 40-50 ghar todne wale laaye the... when I saw that I felt like I was raped, I felt violated mentally and psychologically,” she said.  6. On Urmila Matondkar's Remarks About Her In a series of interviews, actor Urmila Matondkar had called out Kangana on her remarks about Mumbai and alleged that Kangana was playing a “victim and woman” card.  Responding to that, Kangana said,  “I saw one very derogatory interview given by Urmila Matondkar. The way she was talking about me, pulling faces, making a mockery about my struggles, attacking me on the fact that I am trying to appease BJP for a ticket. One doesn't have to be a genius to figure for me it is not very difficult to get a ticket. Even Urmila is a soft porn star. She is not known for her acting for sure, what is she known for? For doing soft porns right. If she could get a ticket, why wouldn't I get a ticket?” Kangana hits out at @UrmilaMatondkar over her remark on ‘BJP ticket’.

On Whether She Is Fighting For Sushant, For Political Gain Or To Wage A “Drug War” She clearly stated that she is fighting for herself, but by “cleansing the path”, she would help many as she too has survived molestation and abuse from the industry.  Fight against 'Drug Mafia'.

I am fighting for myself, will cleanse the system - trying to clean the path for many: Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam), Actor tells Navika Kumar on #FranklySpeakingWithKangana. pic.twitter.com/MrSQZjAQxC — TIMES NOW (@TimesNow) September 16, 2020 8.  On Jaya Bachchan's Views About The Industry Drugs affected me at the start of my career.

On Sushant Singh Rajput’s ‘Ostracization’ By Bollywood  Talking about how Sushant was ostracized from the industry and how Bollywood did not speak up at the time, Kangana added that even the people supporting Rhea in the name of 'attacking patriarchy' were not doing it of their own free will, but rather, on someone's “orders”.  Here, check out what she said:  SSR always said that he's been bullied, ostracised.

Shehnaaz Gill’s Transformation Photos Prove She’s Truly 'Punjab Ki Katrina'

Shehnaaz Gill continues to rule the glittery world by her appearance and got fame after she was seen in Bigg Boss. She has been addressed as 'Punjab Ki Katrina Kaif' and it’s not even wrong to compliment her that way. If you remember her stint in the Bigg Boss house, you might remember her as the bubbly one who was the real entertainer in the madhouse. View this post on InstagramThere is only one happiness in this life , to love and be loved 💕💕 Outfit by @kirensandhu_designer 💕@badeshashehbaz💕 #bb #bigboss #bigboss13 #voot #salmankhan #realsana #sanalove #shejnazgillA post shared by (@shehnaazgill) Well, she has completely changed her avatar as she has lost 12 kgs in this lockdown period. She is in the news currently for her drastic weight loss. In an exclusive chat with ETimes TV, Shehnaaz said, “Look, lockdown chal raha hai. A large amount of work has come to a standstill all around, so I thought why not just go for weight loss? Kuch logon ne mere weight ka mazak udaya tha 'Bigg Boss 13' mein. Kai log weight lose karte hain, maine socha chalo logon ko dikhati hoon ki main bhi patli ho sakti hoon. It's not difficult to lose weight if you really want to." When asked how she managed to shed off this much weight and tone her body, she said, “Trust me, I went in for a simple reduction in my eating habits. You can say that I cut off on my non-vegetarian food, chocolates and ice cream, and nothing else. But besides that, let me explain how I ate because therein lies the catch. Every day, I ate just one or two things. I wouldn't stuff too much variety in my daily consumption of food. For example, if I ate dal and moong for lunch, I would eat the same for dinner. And I reduced the portions. If I was hungry for two rotis, I ate only one. Mann maarke khati thi. And it started working. I was 67 kg around the time lockdown began in March, I am 55 kg now.” People are loving her new avatar and here are 7 photos of the actor that will make your jaw drop right away.

Here Are All The Exciting Details About The Playstation 5 Including How Much It Will Cost

Sony today announced more details about the Playstation 5 after it showcased games for the upcoming consoles earlier this year in June. Today the Japanese company revealed the price of the console and it will retail for $399 for the digital edition and $499 for the physical disk edition and will be available from November 12th in the United States and November 19th for other regions. For Indian customers, the pricing has not been revealed yet however the country does impose high import taxes for game consoles. It can range anywhere between 28-30% and with added GST as well.  © Sony Computer Entertainment Sony started off the presentation with the reveal of Final Fantasy XVI. The game looks inspired by Game of Thrones and other high-fantasy properties with stylish anime characters. The game showed off some incredible combat systems, The game will be a console exclusive to PlayStation 5 and will launch on the PC as well. 
Sony then moved on to showcase Spider-Man: Miles Morales with gameplay footage that is probably set in the beginning parts of the game. We see Miles and his friend move through a crowd to his mom’s election rally. A CGI cut scene showed Miles using his bio-electricity power against enemies that transitioned into gameplay. The fast-paced action of the game was quite apparent with flare and seamless combat against a group of enemies. The game looks far more impressive than the PlayStation 4 version of the game with incredible graphics and cinematic cutscenes. Warner Brothers also announced the new Harry Potter RPG called ‘Hogwarts Legacy’ based on the lore from the books and the movies. It features trolls, magical beasts, dragons, dementors and more. The game showed off Hogwarts and all the key locations from the movie as well. You will be able to create your own journey, learn spells and battle monsters. You will also explore new lands according to the trailer. We did see some magic-based combat and from the very little we saw, it looked quite impressive. Not much was disclosed about the game however the game is expected to launch for the PlayStation 5 sometime soon.  Other games that were shown off during the presentation includes a new narrative trailer for COD: Black Ops Cold War, Resident Evil Village, Deathloop, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition and Oddworld Soulstorm.  We also got to see a new trailer for Demon’s Souls that also included some gameplay footage. We’ve been waiting for this brutal RPG for years and we are happy to let you know the unforgiving gameplay makes a return. The game had impressive lighting, character models, and shadows.  © Sony Computer Entertainment Sony then released more info about their counter to the Xbox Game Pass for PlayStation Plus subscribers that includes older games. It’s called the “PlayStation Plus Collection” that features most of Sony’s first-party titles and some third party titles. Games like God of War, Fallout 4, and other games. 
© Sony Santa Monica Sony also did a title reveal for the next God Of War game with the text 'Ragnarok is Coming’. The reveal did details that the game will launch sometime in 2021 for the PlayStation 5 with no further details. 
The PlayStation 5 will have new features such as instant loading times thanks to the new SSD, ray-tracing, and 3D audio capabilities. The console will also have two storage options i.e. 1TB and 2TB variants while storage can be expanded thanks to the M.2 NVME SSD slot. However, third party SSDs need to meet the requirements needed by the PlayStation 5 i.e. ample read and write speeds.  © Sony Computer Entertainment The console will also come with a new DualSense controller that has haptic feedback and adaptive triggers on the L2/R2 triggers. The triggers will be able to emulate tension and other types of feedback when playing games. For example, while drawing an arrow; you will be able to feel the tension on the trigger while performing that action in-game. 
The PlayStation 5 is also backwards compatible with PlayStation 4 games which means you can potentially bring your entire PlayStation 4 library with you, However, publishers will have to provide an upgrade for your games that are mostly free however some publisher such as Activision will be charging an additional fee for the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.  The PS5 will be able to deliver 3D audio thanks to the new Tempest Engine and would enhance gaming experiences by tenfold. For example, today, the sound of rain in a game is a single audio track, but the PS5 would theoretically be capable of letting you hear individual raindrops, in relation to where the player character is.

6 Universal Skincare Myths That Men Need To Stop Believing Right Away

Most men are pretty on point when it comes to grooming, but when it comes to skincare, this area is still unchartered territory. On top of that, knowing what's real and what's a myth, is hard to keep a track of. 
Well, fret not. We are here to debunk 6 of the most common skincare myths that men believe, so that you finally know they aren't true and stop following them right away:  1. Body Soap Is Okay For The Face  © iStock While it's okay to not have so many products in your bathroom, using a soap bar for your body as well as your face, is definitely a practice you should put an end to. 
Facial skin is sensitive and using harsh soaps on it can wear out the natural oils, leading to redness and breakout - not to mention, drying of the beard as well, if you have one.  A gentle cleanser instead can help maintain your skin and level-up your skincare regimen. 2. There's No Need To Moisturise Oily Skin  © iStock Wrong. This is quite a common myth. Be it any skin type, they all need good care with a moisturiser. 
Since oily skin is prone to acne, a heavy moisturiser can make it appear more oily. But if you don't use a moisturiser, you are depriving your skin of hydration and that's how it turns dry. Then, your sebaceous gland produces more oil which means more acne. Hence, applying a lightweight moisturiser is a must. 3. Shaving Creams With More Foam Are Better  © iStock Although shaving creams that lather more are fun to work with, it's actually the ingredients in it that matter. 
When you buy shaving cream, look for ingredients such as aloe vera or glycerin that give a smoother finish to your skin and help in giving you a smoother shave.  4. Scrubbing Too Much Is A Good Thing  © iStock Scrubbing is really important but sometimes, men tend to go overboard with exfoliating products assuming that their skin will look better by doing so. 
In reality, though, scrubbing too hard and often can dry your skin and leave it looking flaky. Buff your skin, but not so much that you end up dehydrating it. Use it twice a week and you are good to go! 5. Anti-Aging Products Are Not For Men  © iStock Your overall lifestyle contributes to your skin's ageing process. External factors, for example, your workout routine and your everyday diet, determine the ageing process. 
The skin starts producing less collagen, which marks the beginning of the process. What you can do is have the best anti-ageing products with you, infused with aloe, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid etc as they help in collagen production and control the skin from losing its elasticity. 6. Men Don't Need Sunscreen  © iStock If you don't use sunscreen, you are depriving your skin of protection from the harsh UVA and UVB rays. These rays can harm your skin, but a sunscreen with a good amount of SPF creates a shield. 
Not just that, it should also be applied when you are indoors, as UVA light can cause premature skin ageing and to prevent that, a sunscreen comes handy.

4 Instances When Ravi Kishan's Controversial Statements Landed Him In Trouble

Many people come to master the art of ‘laying low’ and getting away with no major episodes disrupting their peaceful lives. However, the same cannot be said for most public figures and celebrities. Things get especially interesting when politics is added to the mix and we have enough examples to prove our point. © Facebook Ravi Kishan One such personality who fits the bill is actor-turned-politician Ravi Kishan, who is a popular celebrity in Bhojpuri as well as Hindi film industry. Almost three-decades-old in the entertainment industry, Ravi Kishan started his political career in 2014 by joining the Congress party to contest the 2014 General Elections. Come 2017, he cut his ties with Congress and jumped the gun to join the BJP. As luck would have it, Ravi ended up winning the 2019 General Elections and is now a Lok Sabha MP from Gorakhpur.
However, it seems, ever since his move to politics, Ravi Kishan has landed himself in controversies more often than not. Let’s take a look at some of the recent controversies involving Ravi Kishan that made headlines. 1. The Bollywood Drug Cartel Comment  © Facebook Ravi Kishan The most recent instance that’s made Ravi Kishan the talk of the town, especially in B-Town, is his comments on the impact of narcotics in Bollywood, when he recently raised the issue of the Hindi film’s industry’s alleged links with drug cartel in Lok Sabha.
It didn’t sit well with a lot of people including the Shiv Sena and veteran Bollywood actress and Rajya Sabha MP Jaya Bachchan, who went out to raise the issue in the parliament yesterday and said that she was hurt and embarrassed that “that a Lok Sabha member from the industry (read: Ravi Kishan) spoke against the industry yesterday. "Jis thali mein khate hai, usi mein chhed kartein hai.” Jaya Bachchan’s comments have now pinched Ravi Kishan, who said that he didn’t expect a senior to make such comments. 2. India ‘Hindu Rashtra’ Comment © Facebook Ravi Kishan Last year, amid raging protests against the passing of the Citizenship Amendment Bill by the Union Cabinet, Ravi Kishan had courted major controversy when he made the error of calling India a "Hindu Rashtra" on the basis that the majority of the population belongs to this religious community.
During an interview Ravi had said, “The population of Hindus is 100 crore, so obviously India is a Hindu Rashtra. There are so many Muslim and Christian countries, so it is amazing that we have a country called 'Bharat' to keep alive our culture.” Sure enough, people didn’t approve of him making that kind of overarching remark and called him out on it left, right and centre.  As if that wasn’t enough, he even went on to add that “(CAB) Protesters have gone mad. Let them protest.”  3. When Ravi Kishan Landed In A ‘Sweat’ © Facebook Ravi Kishan Earlier this year, amid the mass migration of migrant workers due to the coronavirus lockdown, a video of Ravi Kishan went viral which was used by people to call him anti-poor and anti-labourer. The video showed Ravi inside a moving car where he could be heard scolding his colleagues for making him travel in an overcrowded car and forcing him ‘to smell the odour emanating from sweat’.
When the video went viral, Ravi Kishan clarified that the video was from 2017 and his statement was being taken out of context and used against him. He went on to add that the conspiracy was hatched to put him in bad light and that the misunderstanding was created deliberately. 4. The Infamous Educational Qualification Controversy © Facebook Ravi Kishan Like is the case with most politicians across the board, where educational qualification isn’t up to par with a candidate’s portfolio, Ravi Kishan too found himself in a similar position.
Ahead of the 2019 General Elections, a complaint against Ravi Kishan claimed that there was discrepancy in his educational declarations on his election affidavit. It claimed that during the 2014 elections, Ravi Kishan had claimed he was a Commerce graduate, however in the 2019 affidavit he declared himself as “intermediate pass”. Ravi Kishan was even faced with cancellation of his candidature over the allegations. Seems like controversies won’t let him live in peace.
