Being naturally good-looking must be effortless and inexpensive.In fact, those little things you do every day can do as much, sometimes even more, in “giving your skin all the fuel it needs” to recharge, repair, and withstand life’s daily stresses. With that in mind, we intend to share the following healthy habits that will not just bring out the beauty in you but would also make you feel better about yourself.
Start Fresh Every Single Day
This doesn’t only refer to a clean and blemish-free face or flawless skin, but most importantly to a renewed heart. Should you have buried grudges or worried too much, find serenity and make sure you’ve dealt with your emotions and personal issues. A kind, forgiving, and happy heart makes you more beautiful.
Every morning is a new day which is also synonymous with having new hope for a brighter day ahead. You’d be surprised how insignificant problems could be once you’ve learned to accept and let go. Do something that could make you feel happy and satisfied.
Get Enough Hours Of Good Sleep
When it comes to your beauty routine, sleep may be the closest thing to a fountain of youth. Your body repairs itself and recovers while you snooze – leading to a handful of benefits for your looks. The key is to get enough shut-eye for about seven to eight hours every night.
Sleep specialists suggest that if you’re depriving yourself of some rest due to your busy work schedule and too many errands, start getting one to three more hours of zzz’s. Doing it continuously for 2 to 3 more weeks, people around you would begin noticing the “glowing effect”.
Wake Up On The Right Side Of The Bed
We’re sure that you have already experienced waking up late, skipping breakfast, being caught in a traffic jam, rushing your way to work, or missing an appointment due to an unfortunate incident. And when you do, you feel pissed off or irritated all day long. Well, there’s really something psychological about getting off on the wrong foot – feeling bad about yourselves as well as the circumstances that lead you to that mood.
The key here is to commence your day on a positive note. You’ll be amazed as to how you could change your mood and even your entire day, not to mention your increased productivity rate and sense of accomplishment.
Perhaps, this is not new to you and you’ve read about this for so many times but you still live like a couch potato. Well, if you want to age with your skin appearing to be just half your age, get the motivation you need, and break a sweat – the soonest time possible – even at a moderate pace. You may start with jogging or brisk walking on weekends, using the stairs instead of an elevator, joining marathons, attending yoga or Zumba classes, going to the gym, and a lot more.
Adopt ‘meatless Mondays’
A study held at Harvard University said that cutting out meat—even if it’s merely once a week—can drastically decrease your risk of heart disease by up to 19 percent. Eating a diet that is heavy on red and other processed meats have been shown to increase the risk of diabetes, obesity, and other health problems.
So, do yourself a favor and dedicate one day to fresh vegetables, fruits, legumes, grains, and nuts.
Drinking lots of water and fresh fruit juices can do wonders for your health. It also makes your skin firmer and fuller.A quick trick to know if your skin is thirsty: “Pinch the back of your hand or lower arm. If the skin doesn’t snap back quickly, you’re running low on water,” Doris Day, M.D., clinical associate professor of dermatology at New York University Langone Medical Center suggested.
Exfoliating at least once or twice a week and daily moisturizing your skin also keep it really hydrated, glowing, and younger-looking.
Laugh Your Heart Out
Laughter is the best medicine. Charlie Chaplin once said that it is “the tonic, the relief, and the surcease for pain.” A laugh can provide you with a full-body wake-up call that will help you feel energized and refreshed.
Laughing will boost your oxygen intake and release endorphins, the feel-good hormones that make you happy. So wear that beautiful smile and see how other people will find you more attractive than ever. Mind you, smiling is totally contagious.
With all these naturally healthy habits, it’s no-brainer that you’d surely be beautiful inside and out. Stay pretty, folks!
