If you’re determined that 2017 is the year you’re finally going to become more confident, this is the post for you. While it seems like every magazine is full of articles trying to convince you that if you only had this gadget or that makeup, you’d feel instantly hotter, you should take these with a grain of salt.
There are actually a number of simple ways that you can improve your appearance without getting surgery or covering your face in makeup. Here are a few:
Get a tan
No…not a real tan! Those will give you cancer and turn your skin into leather. Check out , which has a range of St Tropez tanning equipment and lotions available. When you have a tan, you naturally look healthier and slimmer, and seem to glow from within. Many people assume that using these types of self-tanners is complicated, but the truth is, no longer are self tanners going to give you huge orange streaks down your arms and legs (as long as you follow instructions). Today’s tanners are better than ever, so make sure you exfoliate, and enjoy the glow.
Get more sleep
It’s hard to glow your brightest when you have bags under your eyes. When you don’t get enough sleep, it affects your skin and moods, making you more likely to reach for junk, and less likely to work out. If you want to glow like a model this year, make it the year you set yourself an alarm reminder to go to bed early. It turns out that the hours before midnight are also the most important for your sleeping habits, so aim to be in bed by 10 or so- your skin will thank you!
Yeah, yeah, we’ve all heard it all before. But if you’re not drinking enough water, your skin is going to show it. Water is crucial for every system in our bodies, and if you want glowing skin, you need that H20. If you’re the type to reach for a soda when you’re thirsty, now is the time to stop. All that sugar rots your teeth, makes you gain weight, and is terrible for your skin. Instead, switch to water and add some flavouring if you need to. One great trick is to keep water in the fridge with some cut fruit inside. Try this with sparkling water for a great alternative to soda.
That post-exercise glow is due to all the endorphins floating around your body. The more you exercise, the more better your skin will look as the circulates through your body and into your face. If you’re not committing to exercising at least 3 times a week, make it happen and you’ll be amazed at the transformation of your skin and body. Remember, consistency is key here, so find a type of exercise that you love and look forward to, and create healthy, skin-benefiting habits for life.
