A 90-Day Guide That Teaches How To Look Healthy And Glam

A 90-Day Guide That Teaches How To Look Healthy And Glam

Everyone wants to be beautiful. And why not? Many studies show that beauty bias does exist; attractive people are considered honest, friendly, content, happy, and creative. While the fairness of these assumptions can be subjected to a debate, there’s no harm in trying to keep yourself attractive.

Like all good things, it requires time, effort, and dedication to maintain your beauty. While some heavy makeups can temporarily make you look good, there is no substitute for a rigorous beauty regimen. Unfortunately, this busy world we live in makes it extremely difficult to follow one. But, this should not keep you from having a pretty face coupled with a lovely body.

The infographic below by Holland and Barrett presents to you a 90-day schedule to make sure you remain at your beautiful best.

    Here are the important points to keep in mind:

    First things first

    If you enjoy alcoholic beverages, limit them to weekends. Excessive consumption of alcohol takes the glow away from your skin, makes your hair fall out, and makes you look tired.

    The health hazards of smoking are widely publicized. If they are not enough to convince you to quit, here is another one: it ruins your look with icky teeth, premature aging, baggy eyes, wrinkles, yellow fingers, and the list goes on and on.

    Diet is another aspect you need to pay special attention to in order to get beautiful and maintain your beauty. The advantages of healthy, well-balanced food cannot be overstated.

    Daily activities

    While drinking ample amounts of water is necessary for your body, you can also add fresh fruits and fragrant herbs to your water. This way you can get minerals and vitamins that your body needs to keep itself fresh and beautiful.

    Another obvious but often-ignored activity is getting enough sleep. After a tired, busy day, your body needs rest to reinvigorate itself. Having six to nine hours of daily sleep is necessary to keep your body well relaxed and fresh.

    Taking care of your personal hygiene is an absolute must to keep yourself attractive. We all know the necessity of everyday activities like brushing our teeth and taking a shower. In addition, you will need to use moisturizers to make sure your skin doesn’t dry out.

    Also, take care of your environmental hygiene. Maintain clean, tidy surroundings. This also means not leaving still water around to breed flies and mosquitoes. This helps you avoid insect bites that could leave your skin irritated, swollen, and stained. These tips on keeping the bugs away might help.

    The secret to a lean, fit body is not starving yourself, it is eating the right things in the right amounts. Make sure you include lots of fruits and green vegetables in your diet. They provide you with vitamins, minerals, and nutrition without adding weight. Eating right also makes your skin radiant, soft, and protects your skin from sunburns.

    Weekly Activities

    Using shampoos and conditioners is necessary to have clean, shiny hair. However, you might want to limit them to two times a week. Your body produces some of the best oils and nutrients that are necessary for having strong, long hairs, and breaks between washing your head helps to restore them. Furthermore, you can use coconut oil to keep your hair smooth and hydrated.

    Physical exercises are as essential as your diet when it comes to attaining a healthy, lean, and toned body. Additionally, it makes you stronger, reduces stress, and prevents diseases. Some intense cardio and resistance training will help you burn calories, increase your endurance, and improve your metabolism and digestion. Try some yoga to relax your body and mind.

    It is a good idea to pamper yourself with a homemade facial mask once a week. You can use homemade face packs made containing vitamin- and mineral-rich avocado. This will nourish your skin and make it soft and radiant.

    Spending some time on trimming and polishing your nails every week is important. By the end of a week, most of the previously applied polishes are worn out and not so pretty. Removing or redoing them will make your hands and feet look gorgeous.

    Fortnightly Activities

    Facial hairs can grow pretty fast, so it is important to keep them under control. Usually, threading once every fifteen days is enough to keep your well-maintained look.

    If you’re not a big fan of body hair, removing it twice in a month is quite important. You can try waxing (beware the pain!) or go for other hair removal methods, such as household laser hair removal kits (studies show that these devices are effective).

    Your feet and hands need some pampering too. Bimonthly manicures and pedicures will keep your hands and feet neat, clean, and gorgeous.

    Monthly Activities

    Visiting a salon once a month is highly recommended to keep yourself well groomed.

    Make sure to get a body wrap once a month. Body wraps moisturize your body, exfoliate dead skin, get rid of toxins from your body, and reduce cellulite and stretch marks, among other benefits.

    How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

    How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

    Just by simply spending some effort and time, staying positive every day can be easily achieved. All that is required is a fraction of your time, 10-15 minutes a day to cultivate the positive you!

    But first, what is really positive thinking? Do you have to be in an upbeat, cheerful and enthusiastic mood all day to be positive minded?

    No. Positive thinking simply means the absence of negative thoughts and emotions – in other words, inner peace!

    Advertising

    When you are truly at peace within yourself, you are naturally thinking positively. You don’t have to fight off negative thoughts, or search desperately for more positive thoughts. It just happens on its own. And here are 2 positive thinking meditation tips to empower you:

    1. Relax as You Meditate

    A powerful, simple yet rarely used technique is meditation. Meditation doesn’t have to take the form of static body posture. It can be as simple as sitting in a comfortable chair listening to soothing music. Or performing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing exercises.

    Meditation is all about letting go of stressful or worrisome thoughts. That’s it! If you spend just a few minutes per day feeling relaxed and peaceful, you automatically shift your mind into a more positive place. When you FEEL more relaxed, you naturally THINK more positively!

    Advertising

    Start with a short period of time, like 5 or 10 minutes a day. You can meditate first thing in the morning, during your lunch break, right before you go to bed at night, or any time. The most important thing is to consciously let go of unproductive thoughts and feelings. Just let them go for those few minutes, and you may decide not to pick them back up again at all!

    2. Practice Daily Affirmations

    Positive affirmations can be used throughout the day anywhere and at anytime you need them, the more you use them the easier positive thoughts will take over negative ones and you will see benefits happening in your life.

    What are affirmations? Affirmations are statements that are used in a positive present tense language. For example, “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better, better and better” is a popular affirmation used by the late Norman Vincent Peale.

    So how does one go about using positive affirmations in everyday life? Let’s look at some guidelines to follow when reciting your daily affirmations.

    1. Use first person pronouns in your message (I)
    2. Use present tense (I have)
    3. Use positive messages (I am happy)
    4. Repeat your affirmations on a consistent basis

    Affirmations have to be said with conviction and consistency. Start your day by saying your affirmations out loud. It wouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to repeat your affirmations; yet when done consistently, these positive affirmations will seep into the subconscious mind to cultivate the new positive you.

    Here’s an example of a “success affirmation” you can use on a daily basis:

    Advertising

    I am successful in everything I do. Every venture I get into returns wealth to me. I am constantly productive. I always perform to the full potential I have and have respect for my abilities.
    My work is always given positive recognition. I augment my income constantly. I always have adequate money for everything I require. I spend my money prudently always. My work is always rewarded.

    Remember, affirmations work on the basis of conviction and consistency. Do yourself a favor and make a commitment to see this through.

    Begin practicing these positive thinking tips right now. And I wish you continued empowerment and growth on your positive thinking journey.
