How does one look beautiful every day? The answer is simple: by breaking a few bad habits and taking on some good ones. Here are five simple habits that will help you look beautiful every day of the year, whether you’re going to work or school, socializing with friends, or spending time with family. Follow these tips, and you’ll never have to worry about not looking your best!
We all want to look our best every day, but sometimes we don’t know what that looks like or how to get there. Beauty means different things for everyone; for some, it’s about natural skincare and makeup products, while others rely on hair salons and stylists. Ultimately, beauty is more than just your physical appearance – you have a natural glow that comes from within, but don’t let anyone tell you otherwise: you are beautiful no matter what! But when it comes down to looking beautiful every day? Here are five simple tips.
1) Get Enough Sleep
Not getting enough sleep can cause your energy levels to plummet, leading you to feel sluggish and less attractive. Lack of sleep is also known for causing dark circles under your eyes, which is a major beauty faux pas. To keep yourself looking beautiful, make sure you’re getting at least seven hours of sleep every night. If your schedule doesn’t allow for it, try going to bed earlier – your body will be happy you did!
2) Eat Breakfast Every Day
No matter how busy you are in your day-to-day life, it’s important to make time for breakfast. Your body needs time to wake up, and that begins with fueling it properly. The saying goes breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, dinner like a pauper, and there’s some truth in that. Eating a solid breakfast can help you avoid eating throughout your morning hours when your willpower isn’t quite at its peak – not to mention you won’t be ravenous at lunchtime! If you aren’t hungry when lunch rolls around (and let’s face it: if you haven’t had breakfast—likely), then you may find yourself making less than nutritious choices.
3) Wear Sunscreen
Even if you’re indoors, especially in winter, your skin is still exposed to damaging UV rays that can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. If you want to avoid premature aging, wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher each morning. Look for mineral sunscreens that contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide; they won’t clog pores and often feel better on sensitive skin than chemical sunscreens. We like Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen because it goes on clear and absorbs quickly. Just remember: Sunscreen needs reapplication – at least every two hours—to remain effective.
4) Drink Water:
Studies show that when you’re dehydrated, your body can store more fat and build less muscle. It’s important to drink water regularly – ideally, 64 ounces per day (8 cups) is a good goal. Instead of drinking calorie-heavy beverages like fruit juice or soda, drink water with your meals or snack on cucumbers and carrots. Both contain 95 percent water and are natural diuretics that help reduce bloating. The more hydrated you are, the healthier your body will look as well as feel.

5) Exfoliate Every Day
Exfoliating every day will ensure that your skin looks smooth and even. If you’re just starting out with exfoliation, it’s important to note that certain techniques are better for some skin types than others. Chemical peels, for example, can damage sensitive skin and therefore shouldn’t be used by those with very dry or acne-prone complexions. But don’t worry!
