This year, take years off how you look & how you feel!
For those of you who are gym regulars, you may have noticed the influx of “resolutioners” who for a month or so, give it all they got, then leave after seeing very little return. What went wrong? Why does this happen year after year? It’s simple really. Looking your best and feeling your best is a lifestyle change. It’s not a diet, it’s not empty promises. It’s that dirty little word; “commitment”.
In a few months, had a commitment taken hold their weight loss resolution may have been met. I bring this up because the same is true about beauty. Beauty begins from the inside and is reflected upon your skin first. No matter how much make-up you put on, blemishes, dark circles, dry skin can diminish the masterpiece you are. The good news is, with just a little focused time and attention on your skin, you can look as much as ten years younger, and feel younger too! The best part is, it’s much easier than 90 minutes at the gym.
Arm Your Armor: Your skin is your body’s first defense, so you’ve got to arm it for battle! How? In addition to eating a diet high in anti-oxidant rich foods, moisturize once during the day with a highly recommended SPF moisturizer and once at night with a clinically proven night cream. Then get a good night sleep. The good nutrition and rest energize you and increase your feel good factor, but shielding your skin from the sun will slow the formation of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots, which mean you, look younger, too!
Enhance Your Senses: The body’s largest (sensory) organ – skin – detects pain, pleasure, temperature, pressure and irritation. So, in order to help your skin sense the world around you – without becoming overly sensitive, remember to moisturize regularly. Getting rid of dead cells allows new ones to surface, making your skin brighter, softer and more sensitive – in the right ways! Plus, locking in moisture keeps your skin firm and supple – two signs of youth, no matter your age!
Sweat It All Out!: Finally, your skin serves to help regulate your temperature and rid your body of toxins. Get enough moderate exercise to break a sweat several times a week and you’ll do more than increase muscle tone and sex appeal! You’ll get the healthy glow that comes with a clean bill of heath… and what could make you feel – or look – more timeless than that? I hope 2012 is your year!
