If you are in a calm and happy state of mind, it shows on your skin. Decluttering is one way to go about it. Keep your space clean and we bet the very sight of a tidy place will improve your mood. You see, messy places can make you feel anxious and put you in a meh mood. Not to forget that the dust particles flying in the air could irritate your skin. This could give rise to acne and unwanted rashes over a period of time.
As much as you love sleeping on your tummy, sleeping on your back will be beneficial for your skin. After exposing your skin to UV rays, squishing your face into a pillow at night is the second most harmful thing you can do to your skin. If not washed often, pillowcases can become a breeding field for germs and bacteria. If they come in contact with your skin, expect to wake up to acne and fine lines in the morning.
FYI girls, juice packets aren’t made 100% from real fruit. Preservatives, sugar and artificial flavouring and colouring are usually added to the juice. This is not only unhealthy for your body, but for your skin as well. In such a situation, water makes a better alternative. Water helps flush out toxins from your body, aids metabolism and improves blood circulation. No matter how busy you are, it’s essential to hydrate!
Like it or not, but you need to breakup with junk and comfort food. It’s time to make friends with lean meat, fruits, vegetables and nuts. They’re packed with nutrients, minerals, vitamins and protein that help improve the complexion of your skin. Also, instead of swallowing food after a few bites, try chewing properly. When you chew your food well, it makes it easier for your body to digest it. It will save you from experiencing bloating and gas.
If something comes in an attractive packaging, you’ll instantly feel tempted to eat it, right? That’s because in most cases, we eat what we see. We naturally appreciate the aesthetic appeal of objects. If cookies, sweets and cake are your weakness, put them in steel tins or tupperware. You’ll feel less tempted to eat them. The same rule applies to aerated beverages. Don’t think twice about giving them away or throwing them out. If flavour is what your taste buds crave for, slice citrus fruits, pluck a few mint leaves and put them in a glass bottle. Fill it with water and there you go! A natural drink that’s hydrating and healing for your skin.
Being glued to a desk and chair all day is a reality for most girls. Every couple of hours take a break. Get up, stand up and walk around for 10-15 minutes. A short burst of movement can instantly boost your mood and make you feel pumped to face the rest of the day. This activity will cut down your caffeine and cheat food intake and will indirectly have a positive impact on your skin.
The one thing you can do for your skin is to never skip breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day because it keeps you energized, replenishes the supply of glucose, provides essential nutrients and breaks the overnight fasting period in the healthiest way possible. Avoid consuming foods like rice, white bread, and pasta as it messes with your metabolism. It fails to process these foods normally and converts them into fat instead of nutrients. For healthier skin and a fitter physique, try oats, hard boiled eggs, tuna salad or a bowl of fresh fruits - they’re the best!
One way to get the best skin ever is to sleep it off. Yes, you read that correctly! Getting a decent amount of sleep improves your performance levels and keeps you feeling calm and happy. Plus, at night, your skin repairs itself and if you don’t get an average of 8 hours of sound sleep, you could wake up to tired, oily and dull skin the next day.
Every day, keep 20 minutes aside for basic cardio. This could be running, swimming, cycling, squats or climbing the stairs. All these activities boost feel-good chemicals and sweating it out could actually give your skin a radiant glow. So ladies, what’s stopping you? Work out like a pro!
