There was a time when the amount of body hair was directly proportional to masculinity but that equation was changed long back. Every Bollywood actor who once flaunted body hair has now shaved it all. So, it’s safe to say that manscaping is the new “cool”.
The ways of manscaping, too, are changing with time. A few years ago waxing your chest hair was in trend but modern men are going for a more natural look with neatly trimmed hair.
But many men experience skin irritation, cuts and injuries from manscaping and most of these issues come from using wrong techniques and improper tools. So here are 7 must-follow manscaping tips to get the job done safely. Use The Right Razor For Manscaping & Go SlowPatience is the key. It goes without saying that shaving slowly is important, especially in sensitive areas. The skin is delicate in these areas and there’s not much room for the blades to move either.
If you’re planning to use a razor, go for the ones with two blades. Remember, more is not better here. Fewer the blades, fewer the cuts. If it gets clogged up too fast, it doesn’t mean you should go harder with the blade. Clean the blade and start shaving again.
A two-blade razor will give you a close-enough shave while being gentle on your junk.
__ECOMPRODUCT__894__ Shower Before ManscapingCleanliness is a vital part of manscaping. Taking a shower before manscaping will not only soften the hair and make the process easier but will also remove bacteria off the skin.
The same rule applies to your tools. Using the same razor for your body and face is not recommended as it will put your skin at the risk of staph and jock itch. Disposable razors will be ideal for this purpose as they’ll minimise the risk of nicks and contamination.
__ECOMPRODUCT__895__ Do Some Stretches Before Shaving Your BallsIt takes patience and flexibility to shave every inch of your body hair. Lay a towel down on the bathroom floor, stand on it and do some stretches. Give yourself enough time, do it in bright light and pull the skin tight when you start shaving.
If bathroom yoga isn’t your thing, we recommend shaving with a trimmer instead of a razor. Clippers are safer and they reduce the risk of cuts, irritation and ingrown hair.
__ECOMPRODUCT__896__ Use Pre-Shave OilRegardless of which body part you choose to shave, protecting your skin should be your priority. Without proper lubrication, razors can cause post-shave irritation.
Prep your skin using a pre-shave oil. It will soften coarse body hair and will help a razor glide smoothly.
__ECOMPRODUCT__897__ Use A Trimmer To Fade Your Body HairFancy a natural fade? Use a trimmer on your body hair as you would use it to trim the hair on your head. Hair in different areas will have different lengths. The hair on the outside of the chest will be shorter as compared to the hair in the middle.
This trim will look natural, it will last longer and will also create an optical illusion of more defined pecs. We’re assuming no one would mind that.
__ECOMPRODUCT__501__ Prepare In Advance For StubbleIf you’re going for a complete shave, you can expect stubble to appear in a time period of one to three days. When shaving for a specific occasion, do it a day before to minimise the appearance of stubble and risk of irritation.
If you shave frequently, you’re probably used to experiencing itchy and uncomfortable growth. However, to reduce itchiness, you can use a hair conditioner on your body after taking a shower.
Silicones present in a hair conditioner can put a nice coat on the hair and prevent itchiness while it grows.
__ECOMPRODUCT__898__ Keep An Ointment For CutsYou can be as careful as you want but cuts while shaving is a reality that’s hard to avoid. It’s better to stay prepared for what’s coming, especially when manscaping areas that have delicate skin.
Sensitive areas are more prone to cuts. While shaving, if you see blood for any reason, stop immediately and give the spot a day or two to scab over and then, you can finish shaving. Avoid the area that’s still healing for a couple of weeks.
If you cut yourself while manscaping, clean the area using soap and water and hold firm pressure for ten minutes to stop the bleeding. Later, apply a balm or petroleum jelly and cover it with a bandaid.
__ECOMPRODUCT__307__ The Bottomline Manscaping is an art, one you can master if you keep these points in mind. If you manage to go through with it, body hair removal can make you feel good and confident. So don’t fear it, embrace it.

The clash between Juventus and Ferencvaros, on November 25, wasn't really on the watchlist of football fans, especially with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and RB Leipzig locking horns in what was the tipped as the biggest clash of the day in the group-stage of the ongoing UEFA Champions League.
The fact that the Italian giants had secured a 4-1 away win against Ferencvaros in Hungary earlier in the group-stage had everyone convinced that their second meeting in Torino wouldn't yield any surprises. But, a bit of a fire was stoked to Juventus' home game by Ferencvaros star Marcel Heister even before he stepped foot on the pitch.
Days before their clash, Heister was probably looking to get under the skin of Cristiano Ronaldo when he claimed that the Portuguese star refused to swap shirts with him after their match in Hungary. The German international opined that Ronaldo's discernible frustration, visible in his actions, could be a result of his failure to score against his side.

Have undergone 22 COVID tests in past four and half months: @SGanguly99

It is not easy being the most important person in the administrative end of a sport that is worshiped in a country like India, which has one of the most dominating teams in the world both on the field and as an influence on the future of cricket.
As a result, Ganguly has to often choose work over personal life, put his health at risk and continue to travel from one country to another regardless of how much the medical experts have stressed upon avoiding international travel.
Ganguly also addressed the much anticipated series between India and Australia in all three formats of the game.

The Men in Blue, who traveled Down Under directly from the United Arab Emirates after the end of the Indian Premier League 2020 are now out of their quarantine period and all set to take on the Aussie challenge from November 27 when they play the first ODI at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Ganguly said: “The players are fit and fine, Australia also doesn’t have a very high number of COVID cases, the borders were closed for a while...they are still very, very tight on international travel, you have to do 14 days of hard quarantine, so the boys are ready to get onto the field.” View the full article
Everyone will surely agree that traveling has been hard amid the pandemic, and since the countries across the world were in lockdown that started in March, most of us have stayed indoors.
The one very basic requirement to contain the virus from spreading is to stay inside the house as much as we can. In such a situation, traveling anywhere sounds unrealistic and difficult and that’s exactly how it is.
But, businessman Anand Mahindra recently shared a strange game on Twitter that helps us decide the next holiday destination. However, there is a catch and it makes total sense.
Chairman of Mahindra Group took to Twitter and shared a mathematical game that’ll enable his followers to decide where to travel.
In his post, next to a set of instructions, a list of holiday destinations are written down with a number next to each one.

In the post, people are asked to choose numbers between one to nine, multiply it by three and then add three to the resulting number. Then you have to add the two digits together and that’s how you’ll get your final answer.
The catch here is that whatever number you choose in the puzzle, the final answer will always be ‘stay at home’ which is number nine.

Two of the biggest cricketing giants boasting of proven match-winners on both sides, nothing can get any bigger or exciting than India's upcoming tour of Australia in international cricket.
In a year that has been full of disappointments, India and Australia locking horns in four Tests, three ODIs and as many T20Is is undeniably a rare blessing in 2020.
With two special teams in action in what promises to be a special tour, Team India has decided to sport a special jersey for the limited-over series against Australia.
As both India and Australia get ready to kickstart the proceedings in the 1st ODI on 27th November, opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan showed everyone a glimpse of India's new retro jersey that they will be sporting.
New jersey, renewed motivation. Ready to go. 🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/gKG9gS78th — Shikhar Dhawan (@SDhawan25) November 24, 2020
The Indian cricket team's new jersey has a darker shade of blue than their more recent kits.
Based on the retro theme, inspired by the 70s, the new kit has a navy blue shade, a shift from the conventional sky blue colour which India has donned over the years. It closely resembles the kit India wore in the 1992 World Cup played in Australia and New Zealand.
The new Indian jersey also carries the names of the BCCI's sponsors BYJU's (official sponsor) and MPL Sports (kit sponsor).
Earlier this month, the BCCI had roped in MPL Sports, the athleisure wear and sports merchandise brand from Mobile Premier League, as the new kit sponsor and official merchandise partner for Team India on a three-year contract.
While India's new jersey did take some folks down memory lane and got them nostalgic, the majority of home fans were unimpressed with the over-aggressive branding on the retro kit.
The new joursey makes me remember the outfit at Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani. Every place has a logo on it. INDIA has taken a back seat for the board. They forgot they are representing the country. If advertisement is everything, they shld rather highlight board logo and not India — Santanu Ghosh (@urs_shaan) November 24, 2020its better to wrap advertising flex on player's body , rather than wearing this ! pic.twitter.com/0pANT51THZ — -Sathwik -_- (@sathwik_red21) November 24, 2020Thodi bahut jagah bachi ho to ek sticker aur kisi company laga lete bhai.. — (@AndColorPockeT) November 24, 2020The Nike kit looked so classy. — ViKS (@__ViKS__) November 24, 2020Is this IND vs AUS Or Byjus vs AUS — ಶ್ರೀಶಾಂತ್ 🕉 (@Srishantharmy) November 24, 2020MPL logo Is Spoiling That indian jersey — Nikhil chadotra ️ (@NikhilChadotra) November 24, 2020Yo! @BCCI you left the collar for some ad placement. Thanks for spoiling the retro Jersey and @BYJUS what a ugly logo — Sai (@sftmumbai) November 24, 2020 Notably, it was Cricket Australia (CA) who started the trend of donning the retro jerseys. The Australian team sported their 1985 World Series kit when they visited India in their last tour in 2018/19.
Earlier this year, New Zealand also followed in Australia's footsteps as both the teams wore their 1999 World Cup uniforms. View the full article

This incident has since divided people on social media with people choosing sides on the basis of whether they welcome this renaming or not. Now, regardless of why the renaming is happening and who is authorising it, the fact of the matter is that these old places getting christened with new names is making people think it may be an attempt to rewrite India’s history with a Mughal past.
Whether that's true or not is debatable, although it may be recalled that back in 2018 Yogi Adityanath too had called for this name change during his visit to Hyderabad ahead of Assembly polls.

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk has added over $100 billion to his wealth this year, and this has made him the second wealthiest man in the world. He has surpassed Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates as the world’s second-richest person.
Musk’s net worth surged $7.2 billion to $127.9 billion—above Gates at $127.7 billion for the first time—trigged by yet another 7 percent jump in Tesla’s stock price. As Tesla's market value approached $500 billion, Elon Musk had a one-word reaction on Twitter.
Here’s how Elon responded:
Wow — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 23, 2020 As he has surpassed Bill Gates, people have flooded Twitter with memes and they will crack you up. Well, people have referred to Sacred Games and Mirzapur’s dialogues for the memes.
