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.

    8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

    8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

    We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

    On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

    Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

    1. Smart Door Locks

    A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

    2. Smart Kitchen Tools

    Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

    3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

    If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

    4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

    These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

    5. Nest Thermostat

    This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

    6. Smart Lighting

    Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

    7. Google Chromecast Ultra

    Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

    8. Canary

    This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
