Hello to Monday! Are you feeling full of zest for the week or still feeling the effects of an indulgent weekend?
Perhaps you woke up to puffy eyes, or you skin is looking tired, flushed and sallow with more pronounced fine lines and wrinkles. A mixture of too much salt, sugar and dehydrating alcohol will do that to the skin, plus lower energy levels and the motivation to make Monday spell sunshine!
What we don’t want make is to make it harder to recover by drinking lots of tea and coffee with sugary and savoury snacks because we think it will help boost our energy levels throughout the day.
Instead, let’s nudge the skin to nourished with a simple DIY Monday rescue operation:
1.No more tea and coffee for the rest of the day. Put down your beverage cup and hydrate your skin with lots of water, it will help lose some of those lines and make your pores appear smaller
2.Feed your skin – alcohol not only dehydrates but it depletes the body of Vitamin A, so rather than reach for a candy bar or bag of crisps this afternoon, keep some fruit next to your desk instead. Fruits high in Vitamin A include Bananas, grapes, cherries and apples
3.This evening, cook from scratch: Processed foods are high in salt and sugar, and salt of course leads to bloating and undereye bags. Google ‘quick meals at home for inspiration’.
4.Rather then unwind with alcohol this evening, go for a brisk 30 minute walk. You will be amazed at how restful and energetic you will feel afterwards
Even if you can’t do all four today, make a plan tomorrow, and if you want to get a step further, why not try these simple steps for the rest of the week?
I certainly enjoyed eating out a little bit too muchthis weekend, so I am definitely taking my own advice today.
If you are feeling motivated and want to try out these simple nudges, let me know how you get on! What changes did you notice to your skin’s appearance and energy levels?
