How to have an amazing complexion

28 Feb

Good nutrition, combined with physical activity are important parts of leading a healthy lifestyle. Your diet can help you reach and maintain a facial radiance. These tips will help alleviate common complexion issues from acne to dark spots that arise from an unhealthy lifestyle.

complexion

Exercise Regularly

Get at least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes a week of vigorous aerobic activity. You also can do a combination of moderate and vigorous activity. The guidelines suggest that you should workout every other day. Exercise accelerates blood flow and that is beneficial to your skin.

Drink Lots of Water

It helps flush our systems of waste products and toxins, yet many people go through life dehydrated—causing tiredness and dull skin. Water helps the skin be more radiant and of course, if you are dehydrated your skin and face, in particular, will show its effects. Aim for 8-10 glasses a day.

Eat Healthy Food

Eating a healthy, balanced diet provides nutrients necessary for the production of collagen that improves your face. Plus a healthy meatless diet delivers the best nutrients your skin could use. From eggs, avocados, green leafy vegetables, nuts and fresh fruit. And a reduction of sugar delivers the necessary nutrients your body needs for great skin.

Get some rest

Rest and refresh. Get plenty of sleep. Go to bed at a regular time each day and practice good habits to get better sleep. Sleep restores both your mind and body. Allow yourself some unfocused time each day to refresh, let your mind wander, go daydream. It’s okay to add ‘do nothing’ to your to-do list!

4 simple and effective beauty tips to keep you gorgeous

21 Feb

4 simple and effective beautyHere are 4 simple and effective beauty tips to help keep you stunning and gorgeous. These tips should be part of your regular beauty regime.

1. Wash your face every night!

Every night and we mean every night you should wash your face. There are countless studies indicating the negative effects that having makeup on all night in bed can wreak havoc on the beauty of your face. Removing makeup should be like brushing your teeth before going to bed an absolute necessity. There are great natural products on the market to help remove the oil and refresh your face before going to bed.

One easy solution is to use makeup removing wipes. These handy items provide a quick way to take the layers of makeup off. Ideally then washing and cleansing are to open pores so that the skin can breathe. Make sure all the makeup is removed so that your face doesn’t develop patches of skin issues over time. Many women do half a job, and they always leave the hard to remove makeup in certain places thinking its ok. Make it a habit to remove all makeup including around eyes and ears. Leveraging a natural moisturizer will improve the look and feel of the skin and provide a healing opportunity from the abrasive application of makeup.

2. Throw out old makeup

Remove old makeup taking up space in your cabinets and makeup boxes. They do get stale and some, because they may have an oil base get clunky. It is a general rule that you should keep mascara around for about three months, while lipstick a year. Your investment in powders, such as eyeshadow and bronzer will stay fresh for a couple of years.

3. Clean your makeup tools

My friends always forget to regularly clean their makeup brushes. They should be washed at least once a week to reduce bacteria spread and keep the tools in top shape when applying makeup to your face. There are a ton of products that help clean brushes on the market. Clean the brushes at night so that they will be ready in the morning.

4. Work out 3 times a week

Yes, working out improves your overall beauty. Try to work out two different ways. One for at least 20 minutes 3 times a week doing cardio exercises that elevate your heart rate. Secondly be sure to follow up the cardio with weight training to build fat burning muscle that keeps you lean. Combining a cardio and weight based exercise regime is considered to be the best combination to achieve overall long-term fitness which supports your beauty.

To your everlasting beauty,

What are handbag purse hooks and why use them?

20 Feb

Handbag purse hooks

What is interesting I never see a lot of women take advantage of handbag purse hooks (also called handbag table hooks). If you don’t know what they are here is a quick guide. Handbag purse hooks are special hooks that you can place on the end of the table and will suspend your handbag without it being on the table, chair or worse on the floor. I see many women place their nice purse or handbag on the floor at restaurants is insane.

Handbag purse hooks

What you may not know is place your beautiful handbag on the floor will contribute to his collecting fungi, bacteria, and viruses. Even worse some women would place their bag on the floor of a restaurant or similar venue collect he germs then go home and put the handbag on their bed or even kitchen table. Ladies just don’t do it. I just found out that in Brazil there is a crazy superstition that says if a woman’s places her handbag on the floor she will lose all her money. Well, that’s a bit extreme, but handbag hooks make sense.

Handbag purse hooks

Here are the benefits of using a handbag purse hook:

1. Reduces the collection of germs on the bottom of your purse.

2. Are compact, many of the styles fold up.

3. They last for years.

4. Provides an out-of-the-way place for your handbag.

5. Keeps your handbag off the floor and other places that are just not sanitary.

6. Reduces the incentive for theft as your bag is right near you off the table ledge.

7. Inexpensive ranging in price from $10-$30.

8. There are various styles and shapes to fit your taste.

9. Strong enough to hold even the heaviest of women’s handbags.

10. Are fashionable for all occasions.

11. They don’t mark up the table or surfaces.

With all these benefits I am surprised why more women don’t use this essential handbag accessory more.
