Every conversation on STIs or sexually transmitted infections discusses HIV, and Gonorrhea as health hazards but usually misses out on HPV or Human Papillomavirus. And that’s not how it should be, because HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection 1 and some high-risk HPV strains can lead to certain types of cancers, mainly cervical cancer which is the second most common cancer among Indian women. HPV can also cause vaginal, anal and vulvar cancers in women.

I’ll tell you what happened a year ago when I was having a discussion with some of my friends regarding intimacy and taking precautions in case of multiple sexual partners. We had discussed many things around contraception, sexual wellness, protection but missed out on HPV.

I got to know about HPV from my friend who has been recently diagnosed with HPV-related complications. That led me to learn more about this sexually transmitted infection that is alarmingly common. In fact, nearly all of us who are sexually active could be exposed to it at some point in life.

I was somewhat taken aback after I learned that even teenagers are susceptible to HPV infections. Anyone who has intimate partners needs to be aware of HPV, the ways it spreads and the ways to be protected.

Another reason all of us need to know about HPV is that whenever it comes to a woman’s reproductive health, there aren’t many conversations that quote the right sources or have credible information.

Today, let’s talk about HPV, or the Human Papillomavirus.

Knowing HPV better

Knowing all about HPV, the various types, how it spreads, who is at risk and what are the various preventive measures would help people stay protected.

Did you know that, HPV is the cause of almost all cases of cervical cancer worldwide? 4

There are over 100 types of HPV. Out of these, typically, HPV can be categorized as high-risk HPV, i.e. the virus that is cancer causing or low-risk HPV i.e. non-cancer causing. At least 14 of the 100 types are high-risk types. 5

Although most HPV infections clear up on their own and most pre-cancerous lesions resolve spontaneously, there is a risk for all women that HPV infection may become chronic and pre-cancerous lesions progress to invasive cervical cancer.

In addition to causing cervical cancer, high-risk HPV can also lead to vaginal and vulvar cancers. Certain low-risk HPV types can also manifest in the form of genital warts – which are small bumps on the genitals

Key HPV Statistics

  1. HPV infects around 660 million people worldwide. 11
  2. 80% sexually active men and women get infected with HPV at some points in their lifetime. 12
  3. A large majority of cervical cancer (more than 95%) is due to the human papillomavirus (HPV). 13
  4. Cervical cancer is the 2nd most common cancer among Indian women. 14
  5. Every 5 minutes one individual loses their life due to HPV-related cancers in India. 15
  6. In India, the mortality rate of HPV related cancers is about 60%. 16

Transmission of HPV

By engaging in vaginal, anal, or oral sex with a carrier of the virus, one can contract HPV. 7 Regardless of whether the affected individual shows symptoms, HPV can still be transmitted. Anyone who is sexually active can get HPV, even if you have had sex with only one person.

The virus can spread in many ways- 2

  1. Age – Genital warts typically occur in teenagers or early adulthood.
  2. A compromised immunological mechanism has been affected by the disease or illnesses like the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), or medicine that suppresses the immune system.
  3. Lesions are more prone to develop on skin that has recently been perforated or wounded.
  4. Coming into direct contact with surfaces that have been exposed to HPV, such as those in pools or bathtubs, can boost the possibility of becoming infected.3

Should people stop being sexually involved to avoid HPV?

No. Almost every sexually active individual may be infected with HPV within days, months, or years later.2 People must take necessary precautions to avoid getting infected. Safe sex practices such as using condoms and dental dams provide a high degree of protection though they do not completely eliminate the possibility of HPV transmission. Regular screening, for example, Pap smear for women is a good way to catch the infection. Getting an HPV vaccines is also one of the ways to prevent HPV. But you should talk to your gynac about the right age and dosage of the vaccine.

Preventing HPV

HPV infection in itself has no known treatment or cure. However, diseases or cancers caused by HPV can be treated. But there are a few ways in which one can protect themselves from contracting the virus itself. Get in touch with your gynac/doctor to learn about vaccination and take action to safeguard your life.

As you might have understood by now, one cannot ignore HPV, nor can one afford to stay ignorant about it. Talk about HPV with your friends, discuss it as you would talk about other things like dating, relationships or sexual wellness. It’s time we are aware and are protected from HPV.

We are all pressed for time these days so shopping online makes our lives much easier. You can get virtually anything delivered to your door including jewellery. Whether you are treating yourself or getting someone a gift, you can find endless options online. You may even find better prices than those in your local stores. The only caveat is that you need to be careful. The best online jewellery store is not necessarily the most expensive but the one which offers value for money and excellent customer service.

Here are some of the rules you should follow when buying jewellery on the web.

1. Do Your Research

You will find an overwhelming number of options at varying price points and levels of quality. However, you won’t be able to see the piece in person to touch it. You will have to rely in large part on the retailer’s description. Once you find a piece you like, read up on some of the terms used to describe it. Look to a reputable source for information so you understand exactly what you should be getting. It’s easy to be impulsive when shopping online but you should take a step back and do your due diligence.

2. Look at the Pictures Closely

A single picture will grab your attention, but you need to look at all the available images before you hand over your credit card details. Don’t just look at one angle and decide to spend your hard-earned cash. In fact, you can even ask the seller to send you additional images if you need to see an angle that isn’t shown on the site. Examine the jewellery for damage or imperfections as well as maker’s marks and artist signatures.

5 Golden Rules for Buying Jewellery Online | Cherry On Top

3. Get Details on the Seller

You need to ensure you are buying from a reputable source. This is especially important if you are buying a very expensive item. Look at how long the retailer has been in business and whether they have good reviews. Check with agencies like the Better Business Bureau to see if there are any open complaints against the company. Also, take note of how the seller responds to your queries and whether they display professionalism. If you’re purchasing a piece of jewellery that doesn’t have a certification, the seller’s reputation is the only thing you have to go on.

4. Ask for Proof of Authenticity and Check the Return Policy

You need to ensure the jewellery you’re ordering is authentic. If you’re buying a 24-karat gold ring or a 925-sterling silver necklace, ask for the relevant documentation. If there are diamonds or rubies involved, get the details on them as well so you know exactly what you’re supposed to get. You should also find out about the store’s return policy in case you get the wrong product or it’s defective.

5. Make Sure the Shipment is Insured

You don’t expect your shipment to get lost, but it could happen. It could also get damaged. If you’ve ordered an engagement ring or another special piece for a loved one, this is the last thing you want to occur. Ensure the seller offers protection against such occurrences so you have peace of mind.

Buying jewellery online is about more than just getting the best price, although you need to know the market value of any piece you want to purchase. Take the time to research the type of jewellery you’re eyeing and get the scoop on the retailer before you commit. Follow these rules and you won’t regret your purchase.

No doubt it changes the look of the house in a matter of a moment. But with the new Orient Aero Series fans, your house is going to look like as if it had an upgrade. I’ll tell you why.

About the Orient Aero Series Fans

The Orient Aero Series fans are premium fans that are aerodynamically designed to deliver high air delivery of 300 CMM in the segment, run silently and to top it all, they add to the overall aesthetics of your living space.

The Orient Electric Aero Series Fans | Cherry On Top

Fans that are Silent?

Orient Aero Series fans are the only silent fans you’ll find in India. I cannot thank Orient enough for coming up with such an amazing concept. Being a Youtuber, I face a lot of problems while filming my videos during the summer months. I cannot turn on the fan as it’ll make a lot of noise and the sound of the video will be affected. These Aero Series fans have ward off all my worries.

Did you know, the silent fans of the Aero Series has helped Orient reach No. 1 position in the premium fans segment? That means consumers across the country has been appreciating the concept of silent yet powerful air delivery.

Adding to the Aesthetics

I am sure none of you has ever noticed the fans when you enter someone’s living area. You might have praised a good chandelier or table lamp but never a fan! That’s because we have never taken the beauty of the fans seriously. Fans have always been a necessity and not a part of the aesthetics of a room. Now you will because the Orient Aer Series fans- Aero Storm and Aero Cool are not only efficient in delivering the most powerful air but also they have a unique design that would put other fans to shame.

Not only are they engineered to be work effectively but also designed to transform the look of their living spaces.

The Technology

Both Aero Storm and Aero Cool are made of a phenomenon that is seen in aircraft. The pressure at the wings of the aircraft creates a vortex and drag. The winglets also help reduce the vortex in the aircraft wings. They applied the same principle to the Orient Aero Series fans. At the top of every fan, a vortex is generated because of the sudden pressure difference of the air. This Vortex creates the vibration on the blade and air and which generates the Noise. Winglet provides a path to direct the air flow from the high-pressure zone below the blade to low-pressure zone Away from the blade. Due to this phenomenon, the pressure difference becomes significantly low and minimises the vortex. Reduction in vortex also reduces the noise in the fan.

Another is the Aerofoil technology. Aerofoil design helps in increasing the air thrust and air delivery. Aerofoil design also gives laminar flow on its lower surface which gives high lift, low noise and better thrust.

Aero Storm & Aero Cool at a Glance

  • These fans promise highest air delivery of 300 CMM
  • They have a sweep of 1320 mm and has 100% rust-free blade made of high-grade glass filled compounded ABS which provides strength to the blades, thus making it bend-proof, rust-proof and easy to clean.
  • Inspired by aerofoil design of Aircraft wings and uses the winglet technology to further reduce the air cutting sound while giving an impressive air delivery of 300 CMM.
  • Sturdiest and heaviest 18-pole motor design for longer life.
  • Awe-inspiring seamless design and PU finish add to the overall aesthetics of the fan.

The Off-Shouldered Trend is Present Everywhere! When it’s burning hot outside, the ultimate thing you wish to be feeling is safe by your outfits. So just stay cool, we have come with the latest trend that we have been seeing ladies diving in the summer in the flowing and sexy off-shouldered tops and dresses. The off-shouldered tops and dresses permit you to showcase a very small portion of your skin without looking very much overboard. We would say they are the ideal combo of sexy and sweet.

There is one thing which we are presently seeing much more in this season – the last shoulders. The trend of off-shouldered dresses has really captured the imagination of each top retailer because they look for motivation from the track.

The Off-Shouldered Shake- Styling Off-Shouldered Tops | Cherry On Top

Top tips on wearing the off-shouldered tops:

  • Summer holidays:

The maxi dresses without or with straps simply hanging off the shoulders are just ideal.

  • Balance:

The off-shouldered tops are amazing for the women with hourglass or pear shaped bodies because it simply balances out the proportions.

  • Strapless bra:

Albeit it possibly sounds odd, you should better off wear a strapless bra instead of no bra. The issue with the silicon transparent straps is that they are basically seen. Thus, you should better opt for a good strapless bra and simply forget thinking about all kind of messes. Opt for a beige one as you can wear it easily under black or white tops also.

Hair and accessories tips for the off-shouldered tops:

  • Big-chest tip:

Simply avoid wearing the long necklace on top of your blouse if you have a big chest. The reason is that your boobs will look very weird. Nevertheless, you always can go with the off-shouldered tops with the straps, particularly when wearing a bra below.

  • Hair:

You can simply go with a complete hippie appearance by wearing down messy hair with the tousled beach waves. At the time of sunny days, you may like to expose your tan shoulders and prefer a shabby ponytail as well.

  • Accessories:

Two options are there for you. You can layer numerous thin necklaces with various sizes or you can also layer a big yet shorter necklace.

The off-shouldered tops to wear in the office:

  • In case you wish to adapt this latest trend to the slightly more corporate type of clothing, try out this kind of top with a pencil skirt or elegant trousers. Always remember to wear the high heel shoes and also get a touch of professional makeup.
  • The structured off-shouldered tops or silky dresses can really go nicely for lunch in your city.

The outfits to be matched with the off-shouldered tops:

  • Keep it simple with a hot off-shouldered black outfit and couple it with sneakers for a model-off-duty appearance. You can add your favourite sunglass and you’re ready!
  • Choose a cold-shoulder peasant top along with a shook denim skirt for that a little boho approach. Maintaining the proper balance between chic and casual, this is the single way of wearing the off-shouldered trend.
  • Try an ordinary floral off-shouldered dress with a statement jewellery for a casual yet polished appearance.

Hi, guys! Today I am back with another skincare product review. For the last few months, I have been trying out various new products. One of them is this TBC by Nature Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub. I am a big fan of exfoliating as it instantly makes the skin bright and renewed. Now without wasting more time, let’s jump straight into the review.

Price- Rs 350 for 100g

Key Ingredients- Pineapple, Pomegranate, Keratinase: Effectively peel and help uncover a smooth, fresh, new complexion.

TBC by Nature Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub Review | Cherry On Top

Packaging- TBC by Nature Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub comes in a regular red-coloured plastic tube packaging. The tube has a secure closer that ensures there is no spillage. The tube comes in an outer packaging made out of cardboard. The packaging makes it easy to carry around.

How to Use- You have to apply this scrub on clean, dry skin and then massage in a circular motion to roll, lift and sweep away dead skin cells. Next step is to rinse your face well. For extra enzymatic exfoliation, leave on skin for one to five minutes then rinse.

My Experience with TBC by Nature Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub

TBC by Nature Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub Review | Cherry On Top

The first time I read the product description as written on the pack, I knew I had to try it. It said, “A peeling gel that visibly rolls, lifts, and sweeps away dead skin cells when massaged onto skin. Multi-action enzymes (pineapple, pomegranate, and keratinase) along with cellulose effectively peel and help uncover a smooth, fresh, new complexion without drying, irritating, or causing undue stress to skin. It removes impurities and decongests clogged pores for a youthful, radiant look.” Their claim was so huge and fascinating that it immediately made me want to try it.

I have been trying this scrub for a week now and now I am ready to share my review with you. TBC by Nature Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub is a mild exfoliator with fine exfoliating particles. The granules don’t cause any kind of irritation. Despite being used on a dry skin, it is not harsh on the skin. The gel spreads evenly on your face when you apply it so that it is easy to massage in. This product does not lather up.

Now, let’s talk about its effectiveness. TBC by Nature Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub mildly exfoliates the skin leaving it soft, supple and brighter. It is very effective in removing dead cells and blackheads. Although I haven’t seen anything dramatic like ‘rolling, lifting and sweeping away dead skin’ but it definitely cleanses the face, helps unclog the pores and peels the dead skin cells off your face. This product contains β-White whitening peptides and it’s made using Nanotechnology. Honestly, I don’t know much about these. I haven’t seen any whitening effect on my skin but it definitely brightens up my face whenever I use it.

Hi, guys! Happy Saturday to all of you. Hope you had a great week. Today, I’ll be reviewing the night cream/treatment that I have been loving lately. If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll know that I had shared a picture of the Vichy Normaderm Night Detox after a few days of using it.

My Experience with Vichy Normaderm Night Detox Anti-Imperfection Clarifying Care

Vichy Normaderm Night Detox Review | Cherry On Top

It’s been almost 15 days since I have started using the Vichy Normaderm Night Detox and it took me a couple of days to see the results. You already know how oily my skin is especially around the t-zone. During the winter, my skin was dry but as the weather has started to change, my skin has started to become oily too. That is the moment when I started using this night treatment and it completely changed my night time skincare routine. But before telling you how it changed the game, let me tell you why is this cream important to you. Vichy says-

“At night, oily skin accumulates toxins and produces an excess of sebum which leads to the development of imperfections and bad skin quality. Normal skin produces less toxins and sebum and wakes up to clean skin. Upon awakening, oily skin shows a dull complexion and dirty look.”

This cream is meant to target the excess sebum that your skin produces overnight and it also supposedly detoxifies it. It also clears out your pores and makes them less visible. I don’t have acne issues but the occasional ones that I get haven’t made any appearance during these 15 days. I am blessed with a clear skin so I cannot really tell you if it really works on blemishes and imperfections or not but I can definitely tell you that it controls sebum. Yes, it does. I used to wake up with an extremely oily t-zone which has completely gone when I have this overnight cream on. My face looks fresher and brighter. Also, after I wash my face with a facial cleanser, my skin doesn’t feel dehydrated. The Vichy Normaderm Night Detox gives you a long-lasting moisturization. It also blurs the pores to some extent. It gives a bit cooling sensation which I think I am going to love during the summers.

I am in love with this product. This product is a must-have for those who have oily, acne-prone skin. This cream is also non-comedogenic which means that it does not clog your pores and it is also non-allergenic and suitable for sensitive skin. This cream is an amalgamation of two important technologies- Detox Technology and Purifying Technology. The combination of Eperuline, LHA and Salicylic Acid. Eperuline works as an anti-aging agent. Then there is a concoction of Perlite and absorbing powders which work in purifying your skin. I love this product and I can swear by it. I am looking forward to seeing how well it work during the hot and humid summer.

Have you used anything from Vichy yet?

When it comes to skincare, French brands have always ruled the market. Vichy is one of the leading French skincare brands which is not only famous in France but also across the globe. Vichy is also loved by Indian women as it has proved to be a trustworthy brand that works great for the Indian wet and dry tropical climate. I have recently switched things a little bit in my skincare routine and have included the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum in it. I have been using this serum for quite some time now so I thought of sharing a review of it with all of you. Let’s start-

Price- Rs 1850/- for 30ml (Buy at Amazon, Nykaa)

Packaging- The Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum comes in a pretty blue glass bottle with a pump dispenser. The pump is protected with a clear plastic cap which closes tightly ensuring no spillage. Although the look of the product is great but it is not safe for travelling. The glass bottle has to be handled very carefully which is quite a task for me.

Ingredients- Aqua/Water, Glycerin, Dimethicone, PEG/PPG/Polybutylene Glycol-8/5/3 Glycerin, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Dimethiconol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phenoxyethanol, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan), Ammonium Polyacryldimethyltauramide/Ammonium Polyacryloyldimethyl Taurate, Poloxamer 338, Disodium EDTA, Caprylyl Glycol, Citric Acid, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Acrylates/ C 10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Cross polymer, Parfum/Fragrance, Code F.I.L.

Texture- Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum is a whitish serum that has a thin, silicone-y texture when it comes out of the bottle but when rubbed between the fingers the texture becomes watery. Having a thin texture allows it to get absorbed easily and instantly into the skin.

How to Use- After thoroughly cleaning and toning your face, take out a small amount of the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum onto your palms and dab it onto your face. A full pump is enough for the entire face and neck area. Use it twice a day- in the morning and at the night.

My Experience with Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum Review| Cherry On Top

 

I have been using this product for almost a month now and I can definitely say that it has become the most favourite part of my winter skincare. If you have normal to dry skin or if you have combination skin that gets dry during winters then this product is for you. I use it twice a day before moisturizing my skin. Before starting off with my experience with the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum, I jus want to let you know a little bit more about my skin and its concerns. I generally have a combination skin which means normal skin with an oily t-zone. During most part of the year, it behaves like that but during winters it becomes very dry. Sometimes I observe the appearance of dry patches or skin peeling around my mouth and my nose. Last year, I had a hard time dealing with a couple of dry patches around my lips which was really irritating. I do not usually get acne on my face except for that time of the month or if I get any kind of anxiety or stress or if I skip my skincare routine which is a rare case.

The Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum is really hydrating as you can guess from the name itself. At least for my skin type, this product hydrates my face enough for it to need any extra moisturizer. Those who have very dry skin must apply a moisturizer. Although I do not skip on my moisturizer , it keeps my face moisturized for good 9-10 hours when applied on its own. As it gives a nice hydration, it can be used as a multipurpose skincare product in summers.

Not only the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum gives a surge of hydration to the skin, but it also replenishes the skin, improves the skin texture and makes it soft and supple for a long time. You can definitely notice a healthy glow on your face after using it. I won’t say that it has brought about a dramatic change to my skin but it has definitely improved it a bit. This year, I did not observe any kind of dry-patches or skin peeling on my skin which was severe last year. To add more, Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum is hypoallergenic, free from parabens, non-comedogenic, non-oily and safe for sensitive skin. The only bad thing about this product is that it contains silicone.

A relationship is like flowing water; they move with their own ebb and flow. The initial attraction, sparks and excitement often wear off, making the relationship bland and insipid. The gushing emotions of the honeymoon period often give in to monotony. Is this the story of your life too? Do you feel your love has somewhere got lost in the banality?

Hey, don’t fret. No one said relationships were easy! Like everything else major in life, they just need a little effort and maybe some excitement. Maybe it’s time you rekindle the love in your relationship, maybe, it is time to bring back the same old charm and unpredictability.

The best way to revisit the old fun filled days is with a Platinum band. A Platinum band is synonymous with love, companionship, and togetherness. Seal the eternal bond with the metal and express that you care. Here are a few ways a Platinum can rekindle the love in your relationship.

Keeping it simple & classy

In the current over the top, ostentatious world of volatile relationships- keeping things simple is crucial for a healthy stable relationship to grow and survive. Communicating clearly, never going to bed angry and compromising on the small things can go a long way in keeping the bond strong. Platinum is the best choice for celebrating each other whatever be the occasion. Although platinum may be more expensive than other metals, the reason for this is that most platinum jewellery is purer and will contain 95% pure platinum as compared to other metals. So, nothing can express your love for each other better than a simple but elegant platinum band. Try these aesthetically designed ones at an online store like CaratLane.

Forever platinum on your anniversary

Life is fleeting but true love is everlasting, and nothing signifies eternity better than platinum. In today’s fast-paced world finding your soul mate is a rare and a beautiful thing. But building on a foundation of trust respect and love can mean spending a lifetime together. The purity of the bond between soul mates is beautifully reflected in platinum jewellery and identical platinum bands. For example, engraved love bands would be the ideal gift for your loved one on your next anniversary.

Renewing your wedding vows 

Bring back the spark in your love life by renewing your wedding vows. A relationship will pass the test of time when two people make a choice to keep it that way. Either throw a big party or just plan a romantic evening with your partner to celebrate that eternal bond you both share with each other.  Once again celebrate the day you knew you were truly meant to be together. Renew your wedding vows with platinum rings that are everlasting and promise to stay with each other for a lifetime.

Do things together

There are several crazy things couples can do together. Nevertheless, there are some things worth doing which can help redefine and strengthen your relationship with your better half. For instance, try each other’s hobby to show your partner, your love for them. You both could even try a new hobby together like skating, cooking a meal, or maybe even camping. You may also go shopping together for these exquisite matching platinum bands we found at caratlane.com, a true symbol of love that stays firm through thick and thin. Each time you wear them, it will remind you of the strong bond you share!

Finally, just exist together happily! The best relationships whether romantic or platonic, are those where you can just sit quietly together without always feeling the need to fill the silence. Simply snuggle up with your partner and watch an entertaining movie you both like together.
