Everyone likes to stay beautiful and young for a very long time, probably their whole life. But staying young, fresh and beautiful requires some work, and if you are committed and willing to do it, then you will have thick, shiny hair and glowing skin for a long time. The market is full of beauty products, and it is not always easy to know which ones are best for you and which ones you need to avoid. Several factors play a role in your appearances such as your diet, exercise, beauty products and your mood.

Here are some beauty tips[1] that will make sure that you look beautiful for a long time.

1. Do Not Forget Sunscreen

If you want your skin to stay fresh, then you should always wear sunscreen before going out. Sunscreen protects you from ultraviolet rays, and these rays are responsible for increasing wrinkles and other signs of aging. There are two types of sunscreen available: chemical and physical based. If you have sensitive skin, then you should prefer to use the sunscreen that has natural minerals like titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. You should check the ingredients of the sunscreen before using it.

2. Regular Exfoliation

Exfoliation is an excellent way of maintaining youthful skin. It keeps the skin soft and glowing as it keeps the pores open. Exfoliation is the best way of keeping acne under control, and it helps with uneven skin tone as well. If you have sensitive skin, then you should avoid using strong exfoliators because it can cause irritation and redness of the skin. You can get help from professionals if you are finding it difficult to locate the product that is perfect for your skin type.

3. Taking Care of the Hair

Hair is a valuable asset for good physical appearance. It is important to take care of your hair if you do not want to lose it. Stress, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, pollution, allergies and using the wrong hair products are the main culprits behind hair loss. You should always use the best shampoo for hair growth.[2]

It is better to use products which have more natural ingredients. There are a lot of natural ingredients such as aloe vera, olive oil, avocado, castor oil, etc. that can help you in getting voluminous hair. A healthy diet also has an effect on the quality of your hair, so eat healthily and include a lot of protein and vitamin B in your meals.

4. Beautifying the Eyebrows

Eyebrows have a lot of impact on the overall outlook of a person. If the shape of the eyebrows is right, then it can complement your features and make them look prettier and prominent. You should gently swipe an organic eye cream or a gentle oil over eyebrows at night, and they will become silky and smooth.

5. Keep Hydrated

Hydration is the key to having glowing, fresh and radiant skin. Several products in the market are excellent for nourishing and hydrating the skin. If you have highly sensitive skin, then you should avoid using cosmetic creams and choose products that are entirely natural such as argan oil, sweet almond oil, rose hip oil, grape seed oil, etc. Spraying refreshing face mist is also an excellent way of keeping skin hydrated. You should regularly use moisturizer as well.

6. Getting enough sleep

Sleep is the simplest way of keeping the skin healthy and fresh. It is a simple, easy, plain and free cosmetic medicine. Good and peaceful sleep helps in keeping hormonal balance in check, which slows the visible signs of aging. Peaceful sleep is also an important factor in keeping your weight under check.

7. Try Exercising

Exercising is also an important part of staying healthy and beautiful. You should always include a little exercise in your routine even if it is just a small walk. It helps in improving blood circulation and brain function. It will also assist in improving your appearance, as good blood circulation gives the body glow and skin looks healthy and beautiful.

You can always ask for help if you are facing an issue that you are unable to solve such as rosacea, acne, unwanted wrinkles etc. with the help of a professional you will be able to find a solution easily.

5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

Everyone experiences mental stress at one time or another. Maybe you’re starting a new career, job, or business, or you feel incredibly overwhelmed between work, parenting, and your love life (or a lack of it). It could even be that you simply feel that you have way too much to do and not enough time to do it,  plus, on top of everything, nothing seems to be going the way it should!

Yup, we all experience mental stress from time-to-time, and that’s okay as long as you have the tools, techniques and knowledge that allow you to fully relieve it once it comes.

Here are 5 tips for relieving mental stress when it comes so you can function at your best while feeling good (and doing well) in work, love, or life:

1. Get Rationally Optimistic

Mental stress starts with your perception of your experiences. For instance, most people get stressed out when they perceive their reality as “being wrong” in some way. Essentially, they have a set idea of how things “should be” at any given moment, and when reality ends up being different (not even necessarily bad), they get stressed.

This process is simply a result of perception and can be easily “fixed” by recognizing that although life might not always be going as YOU think it should, it’s still going as it should—for your own benefit.

In fact, once you fully recognize that everything in your life ultimately happens for your own growth, progress, and development—so you can achieve your goals and dreams—your perception works in your favor. You soon process and respond to your experience of life differently, for your advantage. That’s the essence of becoming “rationally optimistic.”

The result: no more mental stress.

2. Unplug

Just like you might need to unplug your computer when it starts acting all crazy, you should also “unplug” your mind.

How on earth do you unplug your mind? Simple: just meditate.

It isn’t nearly difficult or complicated as some people think, so, if you don’t already meditate, give it a try. Whether you meditate for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours, this is a surefire way to reduce mental stress.

Meditation has been scientifically proven to relax your body (resulting in less mental stress), while also reducing anxiety and high blood pressure.

3. Easy on the Caffeine

Yes, we know, we know—everyone loves a nice java buzz, and that’s okay, but there’s a fine line between a small caffeine pick-me-up and a racing heart and mind that throws you into a frenzy of mental stress.

Try giving up caffeine for a while and see how you feel. And, if that’s completely out of the question for you, at least try to minimize it. You might find that lots of your mental stress mysteriously “disappears” as your caffeine intake goes down.

4. Attack Mental Stress Via the Back Door

That’s right: your body and mind are part of the whole being, and are constantly influencing and affecting each other. If you’re experiencing a lot of mental stress, try to reduce it by calming your body down—a calm body equals a calmer mind.

How do you calm your body down and reduce physical stress? A  great way to reduce physical stress (thereby reducing mental stress) is to take natural supplements that are proven to reduce stress and anxiety while lifting your mood. Three good ones to look into are kava-kava, St John’s wort, and rhodiola rosea:

  • Kava-kava is a natural plant known to have mild sedative properties, and you should be able to find it at your natural health food store or vitamin store. It’s available in capsules or liquid extract form.
  • St John’s wort is a natural flower used to treat depression. Again, it’s found at your local health store in capsules or liquid. Because it uplifts mood (enabling you to see the brighter side of all experiences) it helps relieve mental stress as well.
  • Rhodiola rosea is a natural plant shown to reduce stress and uplift mood, and Russian athletes have been using it forever. Like the other two supplements mentioned, rhodiola rosea can be found at your natural health store in capsule or liquid form.

While these supplements are all natural and can be very helpful for most people, always check with your health care provider first as they can cause side-effects depending on your current health situation etc.

5. Good Old-Fashioned Exercise

This tip has been around forever because it works. Nothing relieves mental stress like running, kickboxing—you name it. Anything super-physical will wipe out most of your mental stresses once the exercise endorphins (happy chemicals) are released into your brain.

The result: mental stress will be gone!

So, if you’re feeling overwhelmed or just plain stressed, try using some of the above tips. You can even print this out or save it to refer to regularly.
