How to get in shape before your wedding: 6 important points
On a solemn day, you want to look and feel great. And for this, it is better to start beauty preparation in advance, several months in advance. Not much time left before the wedding? Start your recovery right now – the effect will still be there.
The stress of pre-wedding chores has a very negative effect on the skin. It stimulates the production of the hormone cortisol, which in turn makes the sebaceous glands work more actively. As a result, oily skin is sensitive, prone to redness and inflammation.
Start regularly using mild cleansers for sensitive skin to remove oily sheen and reduce red spots.
Eye area care
You have to regularly look at guest lists, tables with a plan, look for contractors, outfits, various accessories and details for a wedding in online stores … No wonder that, in addition to a tired look, you are already betrayed by bruises or puffiness under your eyes.
Use moisturizing face masks and patches with a cooling and toning effect to restore a fresh look and even skin tone.
If you are tormented by insomnia, and even in bed you cannot get rid of anxious thoughts about the upcoming celebration, you need something to help you relax. The recipe is simple enough:
– an hour before bedtime, turn off the TV and computer, put your smartphone aside;
– make tea with mint;
– turn on relaxing music;
– use a warming eye mask – it will relax the muscles of the face and provide blood flow to the skin (some masks have pleasant aromas that also contribute to relaxation).
By the way, a healthy eight-hour sleep is useful not only for the body as a whole, but also for the brain (it has time to rest), and for the skin – it is during sleep that blood rushes to the skin and intensively saturates the cells with oxygen.
Want to cheer up? Instead of a cup of coffee, which will only add nervousness, or sweets that will overload your stomach and can affect your weight, eat foods rich in … chlorophyll! According to the latest research, this pigment, contained in greens, improves digestion, helps fight obesity, cleanses the body and heals the skin, as it is a natural antioxidant. Most chlorophyll is found in spinach, parsley, green onions, beans and peas, Chinese cabbage, and seaweed. If you don’t like any of these foods, you can use liquid chlorophyll as a dietary supplement.
Did you know that stress has a negative effect on hair too? They, like their skin, are adversely affected by lack of sleep and poor diet. To keep your hair strong and healthy, use nourishing hair masks regularly. And if you have dry hair, do not neglect the oil: you need to apply it first to the ends.
There are just a lot of tips for proper nutrition, but you probably already know all of them. Drink more water and freshly squeezed juices, eat fresh fruits and vegetables, dose sweet and starchy foods, give up spicy, fatty, smoked and canned foods. This is true not only if you want to get rid of extra centimeters. A balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals will help you feel refreshed and invigorated, energized and will certainly improve the appearance of hair, nails and skin.
