Want to glow with health and vitality? Try these four simple, top tips.
1. Drink 8 glasses of water per day.
It makes a huge difference, and it is a beauty gift that's free so use it!
Christmas is often a time of running around and feeling stressed. Water is a great pick-me up as it prevents dehydration which makes you feel tired. 85% of your brain tissue is water. If you're dehydrated, both your body and your mind will be stressed.
Fine lines and wrinkles are deeper when you're dehydrated. Water is nature's own beauty cream. Drinking water hydrates skin cells and plumps them up, making your face look younger. It also flushes out impurities and improves circulation and blood flow, leaving your face clean, clear and glowing.
Can’t resist snacks? Fill up on water – it will help you feel fuller and also helps pumps up your metabolism, especially if your glass is icy cold.
It shows you are friendly and happy. It is one of the easiest things you can do to be more beautiful. Your smile can be improved by keeping your teeth clean so they are in tip top condition. Having your teeth whitened can add extra sparkle.
3. Get enough sleep.
You can always tell when someone has been out all night because they literally wear their fatigue on their face. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, the pH of your skin can go berserk. This, in turn, affects moisture levels, which can cause acne, redness, and dryness. Lack of sleep can also cause blood vessels to dilate, which is the culprit behind the dark circles you get under your eyes. Adults age 18 to 64 require 7 to 9 hours of sleep nightly, while teenagers 14 to 17 years old require 8 to 10 hours.
Winter is often a time of being cooped up inside hot, stuffy homes. Get outside and get your blood pumping in whatever way you enjoy – running, cycling, playing football, surfing or walking the dog. Endorphins from exercise will give you a natural high, and this joy is extremely attractive.
