1. Highlight what you already have.

Before we dive into the secrets, here is the most important rule to live by, as a housewife, CEO or else: enhance your natural beauty! We live in an age of artificial enhancements: there are false lashes, false hair strands, implants and many other false add-ons which can help you change the way you look. But do you really want to do this?

No, and you shouldn’t! All these enhancements only hide your true beauty, so focus on enhancing what you already have. Are you a 20-something who wants to start a career? Get rid of false add ons and put on a natural makeup, highlighting your natural beauty! Are you entering your 40s and your hair is not as thick and long as it used to be? No problem; just go and get one of the short hairstyles for older women and enjoy your new look! You are beautiful, regardless of your age and position, so take advantage of it! Don’t try to hide your own self behind a heavy makeup! Your clients and partners are going to notice your heavy makeup, which doesn’t complement you, neither personal, nor professional. When you go light and natural, everyone is going to change the way they think about you, so embrace your natural beauty!

2. The secret hair care weapons.

Women spend a lot of time and energy styling their hair, so here are the most important beauty secrets for entrepreneur women when it comes to battling tangles, frizz and limp hair. Avoid commercial products which contain lots of chemicals and even toxic components and turn towards natural hair care products. Research cosmetic companies which promote homegrown, organic products, which don’t come with potential cancerous ingredients. Keep your hair hydrated by applying pure argan oil and massaging it into your scalp. You can also make hair masks with coconut, almond or olive oils. Companies you can turn to in the quest for natural hair care products: Carol’s Daughter, Amor Naturals, Tata Harper, Pratima, RMS Beauty.

3. Never go for fakes.

If you want to be taken as a professional entrepreneur, you ought to avoid all things fake. I’ve said this and I will be saying it again and again! Avoid tanning beds. There are multiple reasons for this, but we’ll talk about one and the most important of them: these things damage your skin and this is the only argument you need to avoid a tanning bed. Avoid hair straightening. Not only it will make you look like a Barbie, but your hair will also suffer. Plus, natural curls are gorgeous! Avoid fake eyelashes. They are simply not make for being worn 24/7, at the office, they don’t look professional and they might damage your own natural lashes. Moreover, you might travel a lot, as a business woman and fake eyelashes are not a good travel companion. Instead, pamper your own lashes with castor oil or olive oil every night for two months and you will forget falsies.

4. Obsess over skincare.

Skin is your largest organ and it’s a strong indicator of a healthy person. When your skin suffers, your entire body suffers, so make sure you always have a glowing skin. You can take example from Pakistani women, who spend a lot of their time caring for their skin. First, clean your skin twice a day, to remove all the dead cells and the damaging factors. You can use organic, chemical-free products, such as Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cleanser. Apply hydrating creams and use a mist spray, to hydrate from outside out. Get a massage on regular basis, apply lotions and creams on your skin and make sure you hydrate over the day. Avoid eating heavily processed foods and turn to fresh, local food.

5. Find a makeup style which fits you.

Finding your best makeup style is one of the most important piece of advice from the list of beauty secrets for entrepreneur women. Experiment with multiple styles and pick the one which fits you best. For example, you can go for a classic makeup look with red lips and cat-eyes, adjusted for daily use. Another example to get inspiration from is a softer look, with peach eyelids and orange lips and a soft bronzer shade in the cheecks. Once you’ve found your staple makeup, stick to it, adjusting it according to your outfits and hairstyles. You can also get inspiration from celebrities: for example, I just love Monica Belluci’s elegant style.

6. Dress for success.

The way you dress says a lot about you, so you have to mind your outfits and make sure they “say” what you want them to say. There are no safe colors in the business world, but there are several boring colors—black and grey, plus “dangerous” colors, which should be avoided at all costs, such as neons. Having a colorful wardrobe is not a mistake, as long as you don’t wear several bold colors at a time. For example, a stylish outfit can be made from a dark blue dress and fuchsia shoes; a dark blue dress and pink blazer and fuchsia shoes is already too much. Keep it professional, but don’t be afraid to express yourself using colors.

7. Vulgarity is not acceptable!

Probably the only unacceptable mistake you can make when it comes to fashion, is being vulgar. Wearing a too short skirt or a too revealing top is definitely going to break your entire presentation and will make people around you think anything but businesses. To make this rule into beauty secrets for entrepreneur women I can say your skirt should be a few inches above the knee and your top conservative enough to conceal the “interesting” bits. However, don’t become too conservative: a proper outfit shouldn’t deny your femininity or personality.

To make sure you are not losing part of your personality, use accessories. Scarfs, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and other jewelry can spice up any outfit and can even make a rather “spicy” top a decent one.

12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

Christmas is approaching fast, and lots of people not only tend to ruin their usual diets, but they also gain a few extra pounds. Based on studies, the majority of people tend to gain additional weight during the holiday season that starts at the Thanksgiving Day and ends with the New Year celebrations. Excessive eating is claimed to be the main cause for the additional weight gain, but it is also due to lack of physical activity and exercise.

A lot of individuals out there tend to set aside their fitness routines during the holidays since they believe that they do not have enough time to perform their workouts. And because they feel guilty after the holiday season, most of the gyms and fitness centers are packed with fresh members. Always bear in mind that you can still enjoy the holidays and stay fit at the same time. If you want to stay fit during the holiday season, especially during Christmas and the New Year’s Eve, here are some useful tips that might help you:

1. Eat Before Heading Out

First, it is best that you eat something before heading out to visits, trips or family dinners. By doing so, you will no longer be tempted to eat a lot or overindulge yourself since you have already eaten. Skipping on meals is not a good idea either, because you will only be forced to eat more later.

2. Select The Treats

Make sure to select the treats that you eat in a wise manner. You should choose something that you can only enjoy during the holiday season and not something that is readily available all the time.

3. Avoid Skipping Meals

Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast! Even though it can be tempting to skip on certain meals, believing that it will make up for the treats you consumed in the previous day, don’t do it because it will only lead to counterproductive results.

4. Drink With Moderation

It is best to regulate your drinking since alcohol, coke or other juices will only add more calories to the ones you already eaten!

5. Be Active

You should still perform your fitness routine whenever possible and if you can’t do that, simply walk more, park your car some distance away from the store or just use the stairs!

6. Get Out Of The House

Make the holidays a family affair and plan outdoor activities where everyone is involved. Even a snowball fight in the backyard will burn a lot of calories and will keep the children entertained.

7. Don’t Skip Your Strength Workouts

Always remember to perform your strength training in order to maintain that muscle mass you worked hard to get. You might be tempted to use lightweights and just do some cardio, but you can burn just as many calories by lifting weights. And with all of those extra stakes you had on the holiday meals, you might even gain some extra muscle. And this is much better than gaining some extra fat.

8. Set Realistic Goals

You should set realistic exercise objectives. Aim for at least half an hour per day and you will be very happy when you will achieve that. If you plan one hour or more and not achieve it, you will only end up disappointed.

9. Enjoy Yourself

Also make sure to set realistic diet plans! Trying to restrain yourself totally from some foods will only make you eat more. Feel free to enjoy the treats that you really love, but in small portions.

10. Drink A Lot Of Water

This can satiate your appetite as well as keep you hydrated at all times. And it will also prevent a possible hangover if you overdo it with alcohol.

11. Eat Less And More Often

Distribute your meals evenly throughout the day, and do not eat everything at once.  Instead of having 2 enormous meals, have 5 small ones.  Eat your dinner earlier and have a nice walk before going to bed.

12. Prioritize Your Workouts

Try to do them early in the morning while everyone else is still sleeping. This way you will also avoid remarks like “Oh, come on! It’s Christmas…”

So there you go! Twelve simple tips that will help you avoid gaining weight during the winter holidays, but will also allow you to enjoy yourself and have a great time with your loved ones.

Happy Holidays everyone!
