You are responsible for someone younger than you, and you have to deal with others also with whom you are not comfortable at all. There is a lot hidden between you and other groups of people as you all are not in great terms with each other.

You are advised to continue living aloof from this section of people for some more time, as these people are not favorable. These people will not help you in anything but will only place obstacles in your life. You are better off without them. But be firm and stand tall, and there is nothing to be worried about. Life will take you somewhere far where you will not require these people at all. But until then, live happily and without thinking about those people. You are far better off without them.

You carry your heart on your sleeves all the time and are looking forward to meeting your dream girl/boy as soon as possible. In this quest to find your right match, you have to go through a lot. You have to talk to a lot of potential partners and see whether it clicks between you two. You have to invest a lot of you in finding out whether you two are made for each other or not; hence you have a lot of potential partners, but you are confused.

In this case, you are advised not to rush into something but give everything some times. Give it some time and see how it works out with everyone. Although you are not committed to anyone as yet but you are willing to find one of your choice, and for that, just give it some time.

Be hopeful, and don’t be discouraged and disappointed. Keep your heart open, and be optimistic about your love life. Think of a bright future and have faith that all is not over yet.

An improbable union is about to take place in your life. Someone you know is going to marry some other person you know very well, and both of them will immediately get along. This match, however quite odd, will be a perfect match, and it will be a happy union. There is a potential of a long term relationship and perhaps marriage as well. You might feel left alone, but don’t feel that way, as eventually you will adjust to this new environment and will become an integral part of their lives. Don’t drift away, but try to fit in the new scenario.

Right now, you are struggling in your life regarding your settlement. You think you are not stable and settled enough to marry, but your family members are forcing you to marry anyone of your choice. You have been given liberty to choose your partner, but you don’t feel settled enough to marry. But eventually, you will marry someone you know very well despite your insecurities. This is because it is the right time for your marriage. Think positive and accept whatever life gifts you, in this case, ‘a life partner.’

Libra (23 September – 22 October)

You have been waiting long to get into a meaningful relationship, but this wait seems like it is testing your patience. You are heading for a breakthrough, and one idea might change your life. If you feel like doing something, then do it without hesitation because this might just change your life good as far as being in a relationship is concerned.

Don’t lose any opportunity with a close mind. Keep your heart and mind open and look for that right partner without any past baggage. Your past baggage might interfere in your future; that’s why it is advised that you keep your past behind and move ahead with a fresh mindset. It will help you immensely in moving forward, not just in your love life but also in general.

Live your passion and be excited for the new adventures. Your life is taking you to new experiences, and these adventures are waiting for you. Take a plunge and live your life to the fullest.

Focus upon the fact that God loves you and always has the highest of intentions for you. A positive outlook makes it easier to recover from life’s little difficulties so that you can move upward. Caution will help you avoid the loss of valuables, including non-material resources (such as time or peace of mind). Be aware of the results of your actions and what others might be doing behind your back. Embrace the time of deep spiritual growth. You may feel called to act as a mentor, find a new teacher, or spend time with others who are also on a sacred path.

You have many people interfering in your life, and that’s why you are too confused, and things are entangled in your mind. This is the right time to take charge and control of your decision making. Do what you feel is right rather than taking other’s opinions. Don’t ask for other’s views but do things according to what you want to do. Because everyone will have different opinions over the same thing, and everyone will sound right also.

This is the time to take your own decision. Whatever you feel is right for you, do that without asking others, or else you will not be able to make your own decisions ever. Learn to be independent in decision making.

You are letting your mind unnecessarily worry and stress about a lot of things, and therefore you are not able to live a happy life. You are always thinking negatively, and seldom you let positive thoughts to enter your mind. You worry unnecessarily about your financial situation, which is very good, but you are always complaining that you don’t have enough. This attitude is not letting you live a comfortable life, and hence you are suffering.

You are also overthinking about others targeting you while those people are busy in their own lives. You are always thinking of others harming you, but this is not the case. Your problems are all mind created and not true at all. Hence don’t let your mind control you like this, and you should quickly change your thought process before this negativity harms you even more. Be careful of this negativity.

You are supposed to change your perspective about certain things in your life that you are most concerned about. Try to think positively, and this will help you in understanding things differently. This will make you wise and will decrease your stress as well. Otherwise, you are a respectable and honorable person. People admire you. You inspire people, and hence you should not take this situation as a problem but an opportunity to gain wisdom.

Victoria’s Secret’s Fallen Angels: Is VS Collective Little Too Late?

Published

Victoria Secret's Fallen Angels II News Aur Chai

After years of selling misogynistic fantasies masked as insecurity for women worldwide, Victoria’s Secret (VS), the lingerie and personal care mammoth, has come upon a business-altering decision. Everyone’s aesthetic and sexual fantasy – the VS Angels have fallen.

After multiple accusations of sexual assault, overt body shaming, and transphobia, their refusal to take action against high-profile executives guilty of inappropriate behaviour has led to its downfall. 2018 was possibly the worst year for the company as more body positive and inclusive brands like Aerie, Lively, and Savage X Fenty rose.

The mystical barbie-doll VS Angels, extravagantly clad in wings and bejewelled lingerie, had more or less remained the same in the last three decades since VS started their fashion shows. Models bearing bodies that ‘please’ the male gaze, just-enough-plump and just-enough-toned, were no longer a thing of beauty standards to the common woman. After all, feminists remind us repeatedly that autonomy over lingerie remains with the person who wants to wear it rather than cishet men.

There was a time when lacy push-ups and the thick underwear band labelled PINK was found in the boudoir drawer of every female teenager and adult alike. No one would be caught dead wearing something else. But in a mere decade, the tables have turned as no one would dare step inside the walls of the magnum opus of male sexual fantasy. It’s safe to say that VS brought this tragedy upon itself with its sluggish attitude toward the changing social norms of body positivity and culture inclusivity.

But recently, VS announced a defining move – one which may have come a little too late but alas, it came. Gone were the glamorous, airbrushed, and pushed-up fantasies of the Angels. Instead came in the Victoria’s Secret Collective. This high-profile seven-member board is a chance for VS to redeem its reputation and right its past wrongs. The septet consists of the pink-haired member of the American National Women’s Soccer team, Megan Rapinoe, Actor, entrepreneur, and activist Priyanka Chopra Jonas, inclusivity activist and model Paloma Elsesser, transgender model-actor Valentina Sampaio, Sino-American world champion skier Eileen Gu, model and South Sudanese-Australian model Adut Akech, and English photographer and podcast host Amanda de Cadanet.

This board is a shot at inclusivity and is reflective of real-life women as the members hail from different cultures, are from different age groups, and in some way or another, are more relatable to the common woman. This diverse set of ambassadors will spearhead this new campaign. They will be alternatively seen as an essential part of VS’s revamped brand image, including their advertisements and social media. VS’s new move is indeed a step toward becoming more like their well-off competitors, who are idealistically anti-Victoria’s Secret.

What’s notable is that this decision of VS is not just superficial to woo their consumer base but is one aimed at its very corporate structure. Billionaire Leslie Wexner, the founder of VS’s parent company L Brands, and Ed Razek, a top executive of the said company, will not be a part of the revamped identity of the lingerie giant. Razek and Wexner have been accused multiple times of inappropriate conduct, sexual advances and remarks, and exploitation of models.

VS has made it clear that the two will not be associated with VS anymore. The company will split from L Brands and subsequently from the toiletry giant Bath & Body Works to become an independent entity. VS will now have top-tier decisions taken by more women executives as Martha Pease, the new Chief Marketing Officer, heads the Collective and plans on having an all-women committee.

A complete upheaval of the VS stores will see the signature Angels’ posters stripped off of their walls, TVs, websites, and social media. Mannequins and models will exhibit a diverse range of bodies and products.

In an interview with The New York Times, Martin Waters, a former executive of VS international, said, “When the world was changing, we were too slow to respond. We needed to stop being about what men want and to be about what women want.”

In a recent attempt to foreshadow the company’s announcement of becoming “what women want”, VS launched a Mothers’ Day campaign. Displaying pregnant women as their models was a first for the company. Apparently, for VS, motherhood was not sexy enough till now.

The VS collective board will promote the upcoming product releases such as maternity wear along with the same old thongs and lacy bras. Other TBA products will see a collaboration between Chopra Jonas and Rapinoe.

Skin Care Tips To Survive Summers In India

Published

on

Skin Care in Summer in India | News Aur Chai

The summer heat in India can be harsh on your skin if you don’t take proper care of it. The blistering heat, dust, and pollution take away the natural shine and, in some cases, invite infections. To avoid all of these annoyances and to keep your skin glowing as it did before, try these summer skincare tips:

Clothing

Tight clothing during hot weather will irritate the skin and make sweaty areas of the body itch even more. To combat the heat, cotton and lighter fabrics are vital. Try wearing breathable fabrics.

Diet

Applying creams is not enough; you need to enrich your skin properly to keep it glowing. Juicy fruits and vegetables should be consumed in large quantities as they are high in nutrients and antioxidants that protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Try consuming cooling or seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Exercise

Exercise increases blood flow that ensures that oxygen reaches the skin cells. Any tissue damage (skin burn, etc) is repaired by the body.

Exfoliation

It is a process that helps in the removal of dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Exfoliate your skin regularly for healthy and glowing skin. You can simply use a washcloth to gently scrub your skin. Try this process at least once a week.

Eyes and Lips

Protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses while stepping out in the sun. Protect your lips by applying a lip balm.

Feet

It is important to take care of your feet as well. Give yourself a manicure; remove the dead and dry skin cells with a scrub and moisturize them later.

Minimal Makeup

Go easy on make-up during summers; avoid anything heavy it’s most likely to melt off the minute you step out in the sweltering summer heat. When it comes to makeup during the summers, keep it simple as the skin needs to breathe.

Sunscreen

Summertime necessitates the use of sunscreen. It is important to safeguard yourself from tanning and skin burns. It also helps in protecting our skin from harmful UV rays. You should apply sunscreen at least twice a day. It is a must-have item, if you don’t have one; you should invest in sunscreen.

Stay Hydrated

It is extremely important to stay hydrated; especially during hot weather. Sweat causes us to lose a lot of our body fluids. Our bodies are severely harmed when the levels of body fluids drop. Staying hydrated also helps to flush out toxins from the body and feel refreshed. Carry a bottle of water everywhere you go, set reminders to drink water throughout the day so that you don’t forget to hydrate yourself!

Update your skincare products

It is very important to update your skincare products during summertime. During winters we need stronger creams to fight the cold and dry weather, but in the summer, we need hydrating products. Buy a moisturizer that is lightweight and non-greasy.

 Use natural remedies

Skincare home remedies are useful as they make your skin glow naturally without causing any harm. Applying Aloe Vera gel, Cucumber mask, Coconut oil, Honey mask, Lemon mask, Orange Peel mask, Turmeric paste are few remedies that soothe your skin during summer.
