1- WAKE UP HAPPY
How you wake up influences your mood for the rest of the day, so start well! Think of something positive as you get out of bed, smile and be the creator of your state of mind. Do this often during the day; taking pleasure in small things facilitates the release of endorphin, thus relaxing and distending the skin and giving it a sense of well-being. Every time you have a negative thought, let it go away and substitute it with a thought that will make you feel well.
2 – WATER FOR BEAUTY
Drinking water is not only excellent for the well-being of the body, but also a way to ensure a beautiful skin. It is not always easy to remember to drink a litre and a half of water a day, but if you drink two glasses of water before breakfast, then two more before lunch and again before dinner, you will see that it becomes a simple habit that will produce excellent results. Drinking water before meals calms the appetite, helps to regulate bowel function, eliminates toxins and improves the luminosity of the skin.
3 – HARMONY WITH NATURE
Take good care of yourself everyday by choosing genuine food which is good for your body. Include at least two pieces of fruit in your diet: put them in your bag in the morning and eat them during the day. At lunch and dinner eat a portion of raw or steamed vegetables: every season has its own products that allow you to strengthen the natural defences of the skin and body. Here is a secret: always keep almonds at home. They contain vitamin E and help to fight free radicals.
4 – TAKE A WALK
Finding time to do gym is often complicated, but never neglect physical exercise! Try to create an daily occasion to walk: Park your car some distance from your workplace, go for a walk with a friend, or even just a bit of shopping. A brisk walk for at least half an hour each day is very beneficial: it improves the circulation, helps you to keep fit and is relaxing.
5 – BEAUTY AND SLEEP
Sleeping well is an essential factor for the well-being of your mind and body. Every model knows that if they want to look their best they need at least 8 hours of good sleep a day. It is important to have a regular bed-time, to avoid stimulating drinks after lunchtime, to sleep in a well-aired and not over-heated room. To take your mind off things, have a relaxing bath or read a good book before going to bed.
