Signs you need a Career Shift

When fresh out of post-graduation, despair swiftly took over me on not being able to decide which career path to choose within Mass Communication. Thankfully, one thing I learnt very soon at this nascent stage of my career is – The knowledge of our best career path is not something that will magically pop up in our minds one day. Instead, it is something we need to discover gradually, over time, through trial and error process.

In life, there is nothing wrong in taking chances and discovering newer avenues and, in the process, discovering oneself. In the same way, there is nothing wrong in giving a career path a try at least once and then, assess for yourself if it fits you. In the end, it is not only about leading a rich and high-status life but also about leading a life full of purpose and meaning.

Signs you need a career shift

Are you wondering if it’s time for professional experimentation? Have a look at these three sure-shot indicators to decide if you need a career change:

Come 20s and your life is a whirlwind as you start juggling between different roles, jobs, and relations. Hence, eating healthy and feeling good are paramount.

Say Hello to Summers; Goodbye to Acne

Effective yet inexpensive products to use these summers to fend off acne

Warm blanket of summers is here to wrap us and we cannot feel more elated. Summertime is the best time to be in, to travel, and to experience. However, heat and humidity of summers can cause us to sweat more, thereby, clogging our facial pores, leading to those irritating and dreadful zits. 

Let’s welcome summers in style without compromising on our beauty. For summer season skin-care, follow these easy steps and keep acne at bay and for hair-care in summers, click here.


Use sunscreen to avoid acne in summers

Sunscreen must be worn all year round, more so, in summers when sun rays directly hit our bare skin. To save yourself from harmful UV rays and for a youthful glow, use sunblock with SPF 30 or higher. For a grease-free look use the one that’s oil-free and water-resistant. Lotus, VLCC, Lakme, Lacto Calamine, L’Oréal, and Garnier have some of the best in class and range sunscreens.

How to Compliment like Winner and Keep Romance Alive?

No matter whether you have been seven days into a relationship or seven years, importance of giving and receiving genuine and heartfelt compliments cannot be underestimated.

If you are into a relationship, you must analyse how well and how often you compliment your partner. When was the last time you appreciated your girl’s care? When was the last time you admired your man’s supportive nature? If you can’t remember your last time, chances are your relationship is suffering from compliment deficit. In most cases, partners will get detached soon and relationship will eventually fail.

Compliments for Happy Relationship

We are not new to doling out the compliments. We do it many times whenever we look at or feel something good. Problem is we stop looking at good things of our partner. So, sit back and count all the good things of your partner and plan how and when to highlight them, until it comes naturally to you. Here’s some help:

Put an End to Split Ends

Having split ends, these days, is one of the most common hair problems experienced by many women around the globe. These occur when the shielding outer layer of the hair cuticle goes off because of external stressors, like salon-chemical services and heat styling products. And, once this happens, hair becomes damaged and dehydrated, thereby causing split ends.
