9 Things Beauty Addicts Want You To Understand

9 Things Beauty Addicts Want You To Understand

It is hard to explain our motives to anyone, because we do have a love-hate relationship with make-up. It is like we need it every time we leave the house. It is just that we are looking for way to make our beautiful skin stand out. But this always means that we have to use more makeup. We really want you to understand our motives and stop asking the wrong questions.

1. We spend so much on beauty products

We are concerned about looking good. And we are willing to dig deep into our pockets to make sure we achieve our desire of buying whatever new beauty products that will advance our cause of being the beautiful person we can be.

2. We are beauty experts

We can be consulted about any beauty products. We have made ourselves so relevant to the world of beauty trends and its products that we are practically experts. We know everything that should be known about beauty products from colors, brands to various prices.

3. We are always doing our research

We don’t get stuck with any products. We are thoroughly informed and will spend an incredible amount of time, from watching YouTube videos to researching new makeup techniques to improving our art and skills of being the ideal beautician.

4. We don’t see “making up” as hard work

While others may frown at the incredible amount of time and energy we have to spend on looking good, we see it as easy work and feel it is fun accomplishing what we love doing. We can spend time making sure we get the perfect product on our face. We can’t simply tolerate average. We want to be perfect with our makeup.

5. We worry about everything that can go wrong with our face

Although we feel that makeup can fix everything, we are always anxious about anything that can go wrong with our face. We are worried that the rain might wash away our eyebrows. We are worried about what a cry or hug could do to our makeup. We are always worried about going out a in a less than perfect face.

6. We don’t believe in the word “long-lasting”

There is nothing like a “long-lasting” make-up to us. What others will consider to be long-lasting makup will be reapplied by us more than 3 times a day. On special occasions, 6 times. We don’t believe in the claim of any makeup to be long-lasting, the best way to make it long-lasting is to reapply again and again.

7. We seem to stain everything that comes our way

Our bathroom sink and dresser will always be covered in orange finger prints and mascara marks.

A lot of our coats, shirts and bags will have some sort of make-up marks on them.

We also are great at putting some marks on our boyfriend’s pillow and t-shirts.

8. We are the kings and queens of the restroom

We can never stop experimenting on what makeup is ideal for us. And what better place to keep on making attempts on beautifying our face can be better than the restroom.

Yes we can walk into a restroom with a red lipstick on, and walk out with a pink lipstick on. We command the restroom with our proficiency of making sure we look more appealing. And when people notice our drama, they still consider us to be the favorite person they need to borrow some mascara from.

9. We really are tired of hearing that “we don’t need makeup.”

We don’t understand this phrase that we look fine without wearing a makeup. Can others stop saying this and stop implying that we look pretty without a makeup, because wearing a makeup isn’t just about making us prettier, it is about establishing our identity and presence anywhere we go to.

Kickstart Your Morning Workout With These 10 Simple Habits

Kickstart Your Morning Workout With These 10 Simple Habits

Benjamin Franklin said it like this: “Early to bed, early to rise, will make a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” He knew from his own experiences and watching others that the ones who got up early were healthier and more successful. That’s why a morning workout can be so important.

One 2017 study found that:[1]

“after controlling for such factors as age, sex, smoking habits, and others…night owls, were found to have a 10 percent greater risk of dying from any cause compared to morning types.”

This is a great reason to tap into some morning motivation and get your morning workout done.

Circadian Rhythm for morning workout

    As you can see in the above graph, your blood pressure begins to rise between 6 and 7 in the morning[2]. That means this is a great time to get your body moving and your heart pumping, even if it’s just for 20 minutes of exercise in the morning.

    Here are some tips on how to find the motivation for a morning workout.

    1. Remember Your Why

    It starts with remembering why you want to get up for a morning workout. If you don’t set a goal and establish your reasons for accomplishing a health and fitness goal, then you definitely won’t get up early.

    Getting up early isn’t easy. If it were, everyone would do it, right? Your goal for your health and fitness must be so strong, and the WHY behind it must be so powerful, that nothing will stop you from accomplishing that goal.

    2. Go to Bed Early

    If you want to get up early for a morning workout, it’s going to be important to get to bed earlier. Falling asleep at midnight and trying to get up at six just won’t work in your favor.

    This will likely be very difficult for a few days while you adjust your sleeping habits. However, as you get into an exercise routine in the morning, this will naturally make it easier to fall asleep earlier and faster at night.

    3. Make a Commitment

    I sometimes tell my Facebook community of my plans to work out, and we all keep each other motivated by posting our runs, our workouts, etc. This is a way to develop accountability. By publicly announcing your intentions, you increase your chances of actually carrying out your plans.

    Another way to do this is to find an accountability partner who has similar goals for morning workouts. You can check in with each other to make sure you’re sticking to your plans. If that doesn’t work, hire a personal trainer for a few weeks to get you started.

    4. Find a Friend

    If you can find a friend that is motivated like you are, and you can hold each other accountable daily to working out, then you will accomplish your fitness goals. Many people prefer working out with friends to working out alone. Whether it’s a chat while hitting the treadmill at the gym, or having someone to spot you while weightlifting, working out with friends is sometimes just more enjoyable.

    Texting each other the night before with a simple statement is best. Don’t ask: “Are we still working out in the morning?” With this kind of question, if they were thinking about not working out, you just gave them an opt out.

    Make a statement instead: “Can’t wait to see you in the morning!” This implies that they will be there, and they will feel more obligated to show up.

    5. Treat Yourself

    We all have to treat ourselves every now and then. After a morning workout, plan to treat yourself with a colorful, healthy breakfast or a delicious morning smoothie. This will help you look forward to something and push through to the end of your workout.

    6. Change your Mindset

    Many people throw away the idea of a morning workout by simply saying, “I’m not a morning person.”  Instead of using this excuse, decide to try to become a morning person by shifting your mindset.

    When you look into the benefits of waking up early and getting some exercise in before your day starts, you’ll feel more positive about your life overall.

    7. Plan Your Day

    You know you’re going to be busy. Try time blocking to plan all the things you need to do on a given day, and make sure you add in your morning workout[3]. If you have a plan laid out, you’ll be more likely to follow it and get done everything on your list done.

      8. Reflect on How You’ll Feel After

      Starting a morning workout is hard, but visualizing how you’ll feel after can help you find motivation. Think about the extra energy you’ll have and how proud you’ll feel knowing that you were already so productive. No matter what you do the rest of the day, at least you squeezed in your exercise!

      Advertising

      For me, I live in an area where there are a lot of runners. When I am heading home in the evening or sitting out on the patio at one of my favorite restaurants, and I see the runners go by, it makes me feel so accomplished that I got mine in that morning and I can enjoy the evening.

      9. Lay out Your Workout Clothes

      Setting out your workout clothes the night before makes it impossible for you to start to run late because you couldn’t find something to wear. Tap into the determination you have before bed in order to convince your less-than-motivated morning self that you need to get up and get your morning workout in. When you wake up and see your outfit laid out next to you, it’ll push you to get up and get moving.

      10.  Set Multiple Alarms

      Many people miss their morning workout simply because they hit the snooze button so many times. In order to make this more difficult for yourself, set a series of alarms. That way, if you keep hitting snooze, you’ll have three or four alarms going off every ten minutes, which will be annoying enough to get you out of bed.

      Also, put one alarm at least a few feet from your bed so that you’re forced to get up to turn it off.

      Final Thoughts

      About three years ago I went from being the person that says I will never be an early riser to a person that loves to get the day started as soon as possible. Without the distractions that begin to come around 8 or 9 in the morning, you’ll find that you’re more productive and more likely to squeeze in that morning workout.

      Take some of the actions above and find the best morning workout routine to start your day and feel good.
