Well it can be a beautiful morning every day if you just develop a morning routine to make sure that you start each day feeling on top of the world. Here are our five top health and beauty tips that everyone can try.
A Morning Workout
Just five minutes each morning can help you to feel more energised and ready to face the day. Start before you even get out of bed by stretching your arms over your head and taking three or four deep breaths. Then bring one knee up to your chest and feel you lower back and buttocks stretching while you breathe in deeply three times. Repeat this with the other knee. Then stretch your hamstrings by pulling one leg towards you and straighten it. Repeat with the other leg before sitting up on the edge of the bed and beginning to rotate your upper body from side to side about a dozen times to get rid of any stiffness in your back. If you have time to do a little more morning exercise, check out the NHS recommendations.
Establishing a skin care routine that works for you can save valuable time in the mornings. Cleanse at night with a gentle cleanser that doesn’t strip the natural oils from your skin, and in the morning just wash and moisturise. If you will be going outside apply SPF to prevent damage from the sun. Exfoliate and use a facial scrub weekly to improve blood flow and keep your skin lovely and smooth. It is also important to make sure you drink plenty of water to keep your skin healthy.
We never look our best with dark circles under our eyes, but around 50% of women complain about these. Whilst you can enlist professional help or try skin lightening creams, there are a number of DIY options to try first, such as applying slices of cold cucumber or cold damp teabags to your eyes and leaving for ten minutes. This will reduce puffiness as well as soothing the area.
A Lovely Smile
Smiling can be infectious, so make sure your oral hygiene routine gives you pearly white teeth and a lovely smile that will make a good impression. If you don’t have the confidence to smile at people you meet, why not consider booking an appointment with a clinic such as the Cathedral Dental Clinic for a smile makeover. If you would benefit from orthodontic treatment, Invisalign in Cardiff is almost unnoticeable on a day to day basis.
According to Web MD skipping breakfast can make controlling your weight more difficult, so try to develop a habit of eating breakfast. Why not just start with a piece of fruit or a low fat yoghurt? Later you can build energy boosting foods such as porridge oats into your morning routine, even if you do this by making them into healthy breakfast bars that you can just grab in the morning.
Sticking to your morning routine may be difficult at first, but if you persevere you will find it saves time and helps to ensure that you are ready to face every day with a smile on your face.
