Many of us struggle to wake up in the morning, particularly after a late night and the last thing on our mind is to look good. So let’s look at how to look your best in the morning and why it’s important.
We often mistake vanity as the reason to want to look good when we wake up but there are so many other benefits to waking your face up in the morning.
Firstly, our mental health should be our number one priority and something many of us neglect and fail to recognise the profound effect our mental wellbeing has on how we function physically.
Decide to start the day with a smile on your face and telling yourself it’s going to be a good day. Smiling alone will brighten your mood instantly as well as your appearance. Not to mention stimulating your facial muscles.
Even if you’ve had a late night, remember to always clean your face with a gentle make-up remover. This will instantly freshen your face. Follow up with an eye crème and a nutritious night moisturiser.
Let these products do most of the work for you so that when you wake up, you will look your best in the morning and alleviate sagging, dry eyes. The way they work, is to provide nutrition to your face while you sleep. This is the time when your skin gets to work and starts regenerating new cells. A few occasional late nights are ok, but try to aim for at least 8 hours of solid sleep. You will instantly make your face brighter naturally.
Now, something that will always plump up your skin and get you glowing, is exercise. Even if it’s only for 15 minutes, anything that gets the blood flowing and more oxygen through your bloodstream will instantly wake up your face in the morning.
How often do people comment you when you’re wearing colours? The right colours really compliment your complexion and brighten your eyes and face.
Something to think about during the previous day, to help you look your best in the morning is to keep well hydrated.
Consuming lots of water each day has so many great benefits not to mention that it is very inexpensive, is easily accessible, allergy free and takes no effort or time.
Water acts as an internal moisturiser. While your cells regenerate, the more hydrated they are, the plumper and fresher they will look when they reach the surface. Your blood stream and organs need to be flushed of all the toxins we consume daily and the best way to do this is with water, especially after drinking alcohol. coffee, tea and other liquids.
Consuming a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables will ensure you’re receiving important nutrients and anti-oxidants also great for your complexion and general wellbeing.
Follow these few simple guidelines and you’ll look your best every morning.
Until next time,
Look, feel, live your best and decide today to live for tomorrow.
