6 Ways To Look Freaking Radiant
Don't we all want to look radiant? Here's to do that naturally without throwing glitter all over your face.
Drink More Water Guzzle, guzzle. Your body is about 60% water, so it's kiiiinda important. Staying hydrated keeps your skin fresh and plump and well, radiant! Ideally you want to drink about 64 oz a day, but it's okay to start with less. More is always better than none! And no soda and juice don't count towards your daily water quota!
Load Up On Veggies Yes, you know they had to be in here! Loaded with vitamins, minerals and fiber; the rumors are true vegetables really are good for you! They fill you up with good stuff and help clean out the bad. You are what you eat and if you want to glow from the inside out veggies are crucial.
Think Positive!! Roald Dahl can said it best:
If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it. A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.
Writing a gratitude list when your feeling neg is a surefire way to flip you mindset to a more positive outlook.
Smile More This goes hand in hand with thinking positive. A genuine smile just lights up your whole face. Listen to music that lifts your soul, watch an upbeat movie or spend time with friends that make you laugh. Chasing your dreams and discovering new things that light you up are great ways to keep that beautiful smile on your face ;)
Catch Those Z's And I'm talking a full 8 hours. Sleep is so important, and for some reason we are constantly trying to cheat ourselves of it. It is not actually an accomplishment to run off of 3 hours of sleep and an XL coffee with extra, extra every day. Your body needs a break to rest and rebuild. If you tend to lose track of time, set an alarm for when you need to start getting ready for bed.
Eliminate Stress It wears you down and, girl, it shows. Eliminating the sources of stress that you can and working towards decreasing the bigger causes is highly recommended for your glowy composure and, um, your sanity! Picking up a meditation, yoga and/or journaling practice to help cope with stress is recommended, and definitely something I know I need to personally incorporate more of!
On your mark, get set, glow ( too cheesy? )
