Healthy beauty habits
So, why is the habit you got on the test useful? How will it affect your beauty and health?
Legs above head
When you lie on the couch for a long time, just put your feet up on the wall and lie down for a bit. From this simple action, your body benefits: the prevention of varicose veins. In this position, the veins in the lower extremities rest, which has a positive effect on sensations.
By the way, this position helps those who suffer from frequent headaches.
Lie on your back while making a mask
Experts recommend: when doing a mask — lie down and relax. This is necessary in order not to smear the mass on your hair and clothes, but in general, the frantic modern rhythm sometimes requires you to freeze and calm down.
Speaking of slowing down, we have some good stuff:
SPF filter in cosmetics
Solar radiation does not disappear when summer ends, but continues to affect the skin at any time of the year. If you use cosmetics with an SPF filter, your skin will age more slowly and become healthier.
By the way, do not be shy to wear sunglasses on clear days — you also need to protect your eyes.
The skin on the neck is very delicate and vulnerable. If you do not take care of it as it should, “rings of Venus” will appear — wrinkles on the neck. Usually they appear in those who read lying down, rarely moisturizes and nourishes this area.
Drink more water
No body has ever liked dehydration. In quarantine, you are sitting at home, so you can drink water often. But when you go to work, you will have to carry some water in a reusable bottle with you.
And yes. Tea, coffee, cappuccino and even that delicious latte with whipped cream froth are not water.
Have you noticed that when you walk with a tight ponytail for a long time, your head starts to hurt, and your hair sags lifelessly? Hairdressers do not advise wearing tight elastic bands, as they thin the hair and damage its structure.
If you like to tie ponytails, use elastic bands for this purpose.
30 minutes of charging per day
There’s not even anything to talk about. An active lifestyle and regular warm-ups allow you to stay alert and healthy. Also, it helps to lose weight.
Half an hour a day is the optimal time.
Dental floss and mouthwash
Teeth should be brushed twice a day — morning and evening. But during the day it is advisable to use dental floss and rinse aid. Especially after a meal. This will reduce the amount of plaque, and also will be an excellent prevention of caries.
Don’t touch your face
Quite a lot of pathogenic bacteria and microorganisms “live” on our palms, so cosmetologists recommend not to touch your face with unwashed hands. Especially if you’re prone to breakouts.
Don’t put your phone on your face
A smartphone often comes into contact with our hands; a whole country of all kinds of bacteria lives on it, which have nothing to do on the face. Don’t forget to wipe your phone screen and laptop keyboard with antibacterial wipes.
