Beauty is in the eye of the beholder so they say and how very true are those words that are spoken. People see beauty in different ways, and that is just as well as we would all be fighting over the same man or woman let alone dress the same and every home be duplicated in décor. It can have so many meanings and representations. Yes we all love the idea of looking beautiful twenty four hours a day but in some unfortunate cases where you have the busy mother or people who are committed to other things that take up so much of their time. So they may find it a struggle to look their best at all times. So here are some tips to stay pretty:
Drink Water. The more you keep your body hydrated the longer your skin stays elastic and supple. Your inside will be happy and pretty as well. Be less likely to hold on to water weight due to “water feminine” just like your body adjusts and slows down your metabolism for “calorie famine” when you severely cut back on eating.
Stay Physically Active. You don’t have to go to the gym more to stay fit, you just need to keep moving and participate in activities that involve movement like dancing, kayaking, or dog walking. As we get older, we tend to sit more thus minimizing opportunities to burn calories and keep the muscles active. Joining activities that involve groups of people can also help you make new friends or make you feel like you belong to a group which leads to better overall happiness.
Avoid sun. Do travel but bathing in the sun for hours and days will only increase the rate at which your skin wrinkles, shows spots, and mature faster than your actual age.
Practice a healthy life style. Eat a proper, well-balanced diet. Food that’s good for your body helps your internal organs function properly and shows on the outside as well. The trick is to read the labels carefully and eat healthy foods with minimal preservatives. Good nutrition is the key to your outward appearance.
Reduce stress. Become aware of the facial expressions you often make when stressed-out. If you raise your eyebrows often, you could very well end up with permanent wrinkles on your forehead. If you squint because you don’t understand something, lines between your brows may become evident. Don’t expect to live without facial expressions, they’re part of you. What you can do is be aware of those expressions you make when nobody is looking. Replace those with something else, such as fidgeting and ease up on your face.
Wear Make-ups naturally. If you wish to wear makeup, choose only the best cosmetics brushes and beauty tools to enhance your finest features and cover flaws. This allows you to apply only the amount that is needed while blending in any excess color. Apply a tinted moisturizer or sheer foundation with a damp sponge. Either one will allow your natural skin tone to show through while covering minor imperfections. Cream or liquid blush blends more naturally than powder. Apply to the apple of your cheeks, outwards, into your hairline to prevent makeup lines. Don’t want to overdo your eyes? You can now enhance your own eyelashes without adding clumps or colors. New, clear mascara is available to separate your lashes and give them luster and shine.
Have enough sleep. The human body is in a constant state of renewal, both inside and outside. That renewal, and repair, goes on 24 hours a day, but while you are asleep there are no distractions of activity, and no exhausting demands. Your immune system is able to work unhindered while you are asleep, keeping you at the peak of health. If you are at the peak of health, your natural beauty lasts longer. You really do need your beauty sleep; that is one of the wisest and most accurate sayings of all time. People’s needs vary, but 7 or 8 hours uninterrupted sleep is probably what you need for peek health.
Eat Healthy. Our bodies don’t need the high-calorie foods we ate in our youth. Metabolism slows down as years pass, so it’s time to eat healthy and keep indulgences to a minimum. Your skin, hair and nails will not only look healthier, you’ll feel healthier as well. In the process you’ll probably shed some unwanted pounds and be able to wear clothes you couldn’t imagine wearing before.
Hairstyles. Today’s society isn’t near as uptight. Thanks to fine actresses and models, we’re not stuck in a scenario of how we should look at any age. Long or short, you can color your hair and wear it in whatever style you like. Trendy hairstyles can look good on just about anyone as long as it flatters their face. Since hair tends to get darker with age, add some highlights to frame your face. Updos, ponytails and French braids are youthful styles to try, but they may show some gray hair you’d rather not reveal. To remedy this you can wear these styles after a fresh new application of hair color, use instant color, or learn to live with it. It may not be as noticeable as you think.
