So it’s Sunday Again means Q& A Post. Today’s question comes from Het. Before I tell you anything about today’s question, I want to acknowledge Het for asking me. Most of the boys think, Beauty is Girl’s Subject..!! And I strongly disagree with that. See.. For boys grooming is important. Also Boys work in jobs and they do business. Being presentable isn’t important thing? Then, with bad skin, pimples, dark circles, itchy skin, hair fall, dry and dark lips, how you can look presentable? No matter how well you dress up..!! Your ugly skin and bad hairs will never let you Win.. !! isn’t it? So my invitation would be, Ask.!! Again I am not saying that you Put on makeup or go for facial mask every week like girls do. But at least basic skin care routine is a must for all.. ; Whether you are a male or a female.
So, I really appreciate Het today for coming out of that boundary that Boys cannot ask about Skin care and hair care related queries. And with that I want to say all my male friends and readers of MyFashionVilla; that if you care for your skin & hair, if grooming is important for you, if you want to look presentable, Feel free to ask me. Mail me your queries related to Skincare, Hair Care, Dressing as per the occasion, Grooming and lifestyle on [email protected] Would love to hear from you.

Tips to Reduce Dark Circles
(1) Drink At least 8-10 Glasses of Water
Looks simple right? Yes it is simple. But I want you to drink water in a proper way. Oppsss Drinking Water has a method too? Oh Yes. Believe me, if it was that simple, I guess half of the dark circle problems could have gone already.
What is Wrong Method of Drinking Water?
To complete 10 glass water target, people drink more water than they can handle. i.e. you are thirsty enough to drink 1 small glass of water. But because you want to achieve that 10 glass of water a day target, you drink 2 glasses of water at a time. Wrong!!! Instead of help, it will create trouble for you. Do not drink water when you are not thirsty.
What is the right way to Drink Water?
Drink Water in Parts. Like a half glass of water every half an hour. Again, I don’t mean that you have to see time and drink. I am just saying, drink a small quantity of water frequently. To do so, make sure you keep a water bottle on your working table. I do that every single time I sit on my working table. The moment I sit on the working table, Before I do anything, I drink one-to sip of water. And I keep my water bottle open. So that, even if I am working, or I am reading or I am writing or if I am talking to someone, I do not need to open the lid. And believe me that works. When the bottle is opened in front of you, you drink water frequently because it is easy to access and not at all time consuming.
So Drink At least 10-12 Glass of Water Every day. Slowly and gradually. But this is the habit that will benefit you in the long term. Definitely.
(2) Take Enough Sleep:
At least 8 hours of sound sleep is must. If you don’t get 8 hours sleep straight away, take small naps in the day time. If sleep is a problem, Do physical exercise more. Walk, Run and let your body get tired. You will get good sleep.
(3) Include Fruits and Nuts in Your Meal
Healthy eating means healthy Body. Fruits and Nuts will help you to have good metabolism. And if your metabolism is good, other health related problems will stay away.
(4) Do not Worry Much. Stay Stress Free.
Most of problems in our life, are there for a time period only and we can’t do anything. Now, if we can’t make a dirrefernce, why to worry? Let it go. Our job is to stay happy and helathy. DO not worry unnecessorily because worry can not solve any problem. Keep smiling stay happy within.
