Get Your Nails Done
If you think getting a manicure and pedicure is optional - think again. Visit a salon and ask one of the professionals to give you the works. Doing this not only helps prevent hang nails and nail damage, but it also gets rid of overgrown cuticles. These procedures also involve massaging parts of your hands, feet, and legs.
After a long day and hurrying around a sexy mani and pedi is sure to give your look polish and style. Most manicures and pedicures last for up to two weeks. Getting a regular manicure and pedicure is very therapeutic as well. Read our guide on how to grow strong and healthy nails here.
Put on Red Lips
There have been various scientific studies that prove that lipsticks helps boost your confidence and makes you feel good. When you feel good about yourself, your body is bound to look good too. In 2011, researchers from Boston University and Harvard University found that women who wore makeup felt more confident and were perceived to be more reliable and competent by other people.
Another study which was conducted in France in 2013 found that “red lips would be associated with an indication of estrogen levels, sexual arousal, and health, which in turn led to increase the positive perception of the women’s faces.”
Work on Your Glow
There is a genuine reason why most of the bodybuilders and models are perfectly tanned. Tanning not only helps you look well-toned and trim, but it also gives your skin a radiant and healthy glow. You have so many options when you want to get tanned – you can either pick up one of the DIY tanning products or you can visit your nearest tanning salon.
Instead of lying down in the sun and baking for hours, the quick fix to tanning is to use spray tans and tanning lotions. If you do not lack melanin simply work toward getting your skin tone even. Moisturize often and consider body contouring if you find you may have to wear a strapless, nude illusion or halter dress.
We keep hearing how important it is to drink at least eight glasses of water every day. Your body is 70 percent water, and if you do not keep it hydrated it will not function at an optimum level. When you do not drink enough water, your kidneys will not function properly, which in turn will add more stress on your liver. If you liver is stressed it is challenge to filter toxins from your body. Staying hydrated ensures that your skin is radiant and your body works properly. Feeling good automatically makes you look good.
Put on Heels
Are you wearing you sexy bandage dress for the party? If yes, pair it with a pair of great heels or stilettos. Wearing heels not only makes you taller, but it also accentuates your legs making them look longer and leaner. High heels have also been known to enhance your confidence.
University of Verona in Italy conducted a study that found that wearing stilettos is beneficial for a woman’s sex life. Dr. Maria Cerruto, an Italian urologist, said, “Women often have difficulty in carrying out the right exercises for the pelvic zone and wearing heels could be the solution. Like many women, I like high-heeled shoes. It’s good to know they have potential health benefits”.
Your skin not only helps regulate your body temperature, but it also acts as a barrier against the harmful UV rays, germs, and infection. In order to do all these jobs properly, your skin needs to be well hydrated. That is why it is recommended that you moisturize regularly, moisturizers are designed to curb the loss of water in the outermost layer of your skin, the epidermis. They also enhance the appearance of your skin and improve its texture, almost instantly. Eat these 15 unlikely foods for healthy skin and hair.
Exfoliation is a cosmetic procedure that unclogs your pores by removing the dead skin cells from your epidermis. Exfoliating has a lot of benefits – it reduces breakouts on your skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines as well as wrinkles, helps retain your tan, and keeps your skin healthy. You can exfoliate using readymade scrubs, exfoliating glove, or the pumice stone.
There are so many exfoliating products available in the market today, choose one and you can perform this procedure at home. When you want something more powerful, head to your dermatologist. A doctor from the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Mark Edinburgh explains, “Specially formulated skin peels are more effective than microdermabrasion but involve a few days of visible peeling skin”.
Get a Haircut
Socialite and philanthropist Evelyn Lauder once said, “One of the most important things about looking youthful is to have a modern haircut.” And it is true! You feel like a new person by just getting a new haircut. What’s more, getting a haircut is also good for your hair – it gets rids of your split ends and encourages it to grow.
The shampoos and conditioners that are used in the salons provide extra nourishment to your hair. If you want to do something completely different, you get your hair colored. Say goodbye to the old you, and hello to the new you!
Hire a Stylist
We each have different body shapes – apple-shaped women have slimmer hips and wider chests and waists; while pear-shaped women have wider hips and narrower waists. Want to know how you can look slimmer and leaner without losing any weight?
The type of clothes that will make you look curvy greatly depends upon your body shape. Find the right dress fit to accentuate the best parts of your body, and voila! Wearing the right kind of clothes not only helps you look good, but it also makes you feel good about yourself.
Visit the Sauna
A sauna has so many other benefits apart from being the place where you can relax and unwind. Regular visits to the sauna can do great things for your body. One of the ways in which your body gets rids of the toxins is through sweat. And that is just what you do in a sauna, you sweat a lot which means you are flushing toxins out of your body.
Saunas are also known to help improve your immune system by producing white blood cells during these sessions. Still debating whether you should visit the sauna this weekend? Saunas deep clean your skin and they are also a great way to relieve all the stress from your body. Do yourself a favor, and book an appointment at the sauna today!
Detoxification or detox is defined as a medicinal or physiological removal of toxic substances from the human body. Detox diets have been extremely popular of late, even though it is not easy to go on such a diet. There are so many detox diets you can choose from, some only allow you to drink liquids, while others encourage you to eat certain vegetables and fruits. Although it is difficult, you will be feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after your body is cleansed of the toxins with the help of such a diet.
The results of detox diets also include increased energy levels and improved cognitive capacity. Whether these diets actually work or not is still under debate. Dr. Michelle Schoffro, author of the book ‘The 4-Week Ultimate Body Detox’, says, “When done correctly, detox diets support the body’s natural detoxification systems through food and lifestyle choices”. Try it for yourself and see if it works.
Taking advantage of these and other quick fixes like shapewear ensures that your body is looking good for that wedding you forgot about or the party you just got invited to. Ultimately, it is all about feeling good and comfortable in your own skin.
Jennifer Love Hewitt once said, "The fun part of being a girl is that there are little beauty things you can do to make yourself feel special." When you are in doubt keep your body fit and healthy because there is no substitute for a balanced diet and exercise to get you feeling sexy and alluring. These quick fixes and routines are sure to help you look great when you are pressed for time.
