Beauty Tips to Look Perfect When Stressed

AVOID PROCESSED FOODS. It is now public knowledge that processed foods have high levels of chemical additives which are poisonous to our body. We should eat more fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants to help reduce stress, delay aging, and increase immunity of our body.

Some of fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants are blueberries, tomatoes, carrots, and broccoli. Oranges and grapefruits are good sources of vitamin C. Magnesium, a mineral that fights stress, is often found in whole-grain products (oatmeal, popcorn, brown rice, whole-wheat flour, sprouted grains, whole-grain pasta, and whole-wheat bread), beets, and raisins. Bananas and avocados are loaded with potassium, a mineral known to preserve smoothness of skin. Yogurt also helps lower blood pressure.

Formulated vitamin and mineral supplements assure regular intake of required daily dose of vitamins C, E, A, K, and B complex that our body needs to stay active and young.

ENRICH THE MIND. Reading good books keeps the mind alert and dynamic. Watching movies or plays and engaging in conversation with people also maintain brain agility. A busy mind never gets bored. With the absence of boredom, discontentment and unhappiness will have no place to set in. And wrinkles will be absent, too.

FIGHT STRESS. Stress is caused by both negative and positive events in life: a sudden unemployed stage or a happy birthday party. Some of the symptoms of stress are: headache, sleep disorder, and depression. Stress can be managed through: exercise, relaxation and a healthy diet rich in magnesium. Enough sleep is as important as activity and food.

Here are some ways of getting to sleep fast:
1. avoid food (or snack) and caffeine intake before bedtime (coffee, tea, or chocolate),
2. no more physical exertion when sleeping time is near, and
3. take a warm shower and listen to slow music with eyes closed.

Here's how to relax: spread your full length on the bed and think of nothing. Imagine you're just floating in space.
