Summer is here and we’re all about that glow. We’re not talking sun tans and bronzer (although we love those, too), we’re talking about looking and feeling your best from the inside out. When you’re healthy, you glow, and we want to help you find your summer shine.
Here are our top 5 ways to up your beauty routine and glow, baby, glow!
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
Hydrating seems to be one of the most overlooked and underrated ways to achieve not only a healthy glow, but also reduce wrinkles, headaches, fatigue, and boost mood, while supporting a healthy functioning immune system. Humans are made up of around 50-60% water and each system in your body relies on proper hydration to function properly. This includes ridding the body of toxins and buildup that can cause a host of problems, but some of the most common being acne and dry, unhealthy skin.
STICK TO A HEALTHY DIET
Nourish your body with the right foods and supplements. These days it can be difficult to give your body the building blocks they need to operate at full capacity. With produce being grown in over-tilled soil and picked before fully ripening, or the convenience of grab-n-go foods that find their way into our busy lives, a majority of the population doesn’t get the adequate nutrition from their diet that’s needed for optimal, let alone basic, health. Without it, it’s more difficult to give your cells what they require to produce collagen and rebuild damaged cells. One of the easiest ways to make sure you’re getting the building blocks your immune system needs is by incorporating a daily ritual of superfoods like Yourlixir’s single-serving superfood powders into your diet. These powerful, nutrient dense dietary additions contain mega amounts of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, natural energy, protein and so much more, to boost your overall performance and function.
GET A GOOD NIGHT’S REST
Sleep can seem like the least productive thing to do when you’ve got a million and one things on your plate, but giving your body the rest it needs will not only help you conquer more in the long run, it gives your body the downtime it needs to repair damaged skin, and reduce inflammation and puffiness. Getting in your z’s also improves memory, brain function and mood, all of which are vital to looking and feeling your best. Remember, smart is also sexy!
Movement is essential for up-keeping a well-maintained physique and appearance. When you get your heart rate up, you improve circulation, provide more oxygen to your muscles, tone and sculpt your body, and help it flush out toxins and waste, giving you a healthier glow. Movement doesn’t have to be a rigorous workout to reap the benefits. You can do anything from brisk walks, yoga, or even sex! In fact, an orgasm just might be one of the most fun ways to achieve the glow you’re looking for!
CHANGE YOUR MINDSET
Mindset is undoubtedly one of the most important assets for your summer shine. Beauty is a state of mind and it radiates from within. A healthy mindset is one that practices positive thinking, confidence, growth, compassion, and mindfulness. Without it, there is no room for beauty. Mindfulness and meditation are so powerful that they have been called the Fountain of Youth because of their regenerative and restorative qualities. When you are able to meditate to relieve stress, less cortisol is produced by the body, which can be a major contributing factor in acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and inflammation flare ups, just to name a few. Stress also compromises the skin’s protective barrier that keeps bacteria out and moisture in, so make sure to woo-sah the worry away to keep your skin in tip-top shape!
