Summer is just around the corner and let’s face it, summer fashion is a lot less forgiving then winter layers. Whether you are heading out to a the beach, trying to fit into a new dress or just going out for happy hour everyone wants to look great. Here are a few tips to keep your skin and body in the best condition.
2. Sleep Well
Pay attention to good sleeping habits. By keeping the same bedtime and wake-up schedule and not drinking alcohol within three hours of bedtime you will wake up feeling refreshed and ready to go for the day. Drinking alcohol at night will leave you waking up feeling groggy and tired.
3. Step Away From the Scale
4. Get Outside to Exercise
6. Stay Hydrated
Fruits and vegetables are the foundation of a healthy diet—they are low in calories and nutrient dense, which means they are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber. Fruits and vegetables should be part of every meal and your first choice for a snack—aim for a minimum of five portions each day. The antioxidants and other nutrients in fruits and vegetables help protect against certain types of cancer and other diseases.
8. Laugh More
Laughter relaxes the whole body – a good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after. Laughter boosts the immune system – it decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals - endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain. Laughter protects the heart - improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.
