Crikey, you think as you wake up 45 minutes late for work, leaping out of bed with the speed of a cheetah (if cheetahs regularly used beds). The alarm is still ringing in your ears as you stare into the mirror. Your hair is a mass of frizzy follicles, your lips are drier than the desert and wrinkles flood your face without pity.
We all suffer in the mornings when we wake up late. Getting ready in that rush leaves you without the chance to even get your face on. But what if there were ways to wake up already looking like you can take on the day?
As the cosmetic and health industry makes strides, looking great has become easier. With that in mind, here are a few tips to help you face your morning with ease.
Say goodbye to stray hair
Are you regularly mistaken for an Angus cow? Do people tend to give you bones, mistaking you for a shaggy dog? Do you regularly trip over your female Fu Manchu as you walk? Then It might be time to say goodbye to those pesky stray hairs.
Trying to manage those stray locks can sometimes feel like a full time job, but there is a solution. Laser hair removal, a simple process in which the pulsation of lasers scythes off hairs at the root, cutting it permanently to give you smooth skin.
The process takes a few trips to your local aesthetic clinic, but once you’re done you’ll never need to worry about messy looking follicles ever again.
Keep foods super
Does your regular diet consist of Domino’s Pizzas, McDonald’s breakfasts, Subway lunches and Chinese takeaways at midnight? Then no wonder you feel lousy in the morning!
So many people avoid living a healthy lifestyle (the UK is in the midst of a major obesity epidemic), leading them into the doldrums of health, weight and hygiene issues.
Change your diet to incorporate as many super foods (that means plenty of veg, carbohydrates and protein-heavy goods) as you can. Nutrients, vitamins, protein and minerals are the lifeblood of your body – and they’ll brighten up your skin.
Your eight a day
Have you ever met those people, and there are a lot of them nowadays, who seem to live exclusively on Diet Coke? They wash down their meals with that brown non-specific glop, panic if the newsagents have run out and seem to be constantly surrounded by two liter bottles wherever they go.
Well, their skin, as a rule, is dreadful, like it’s aged beyond remedy. To save yourself from that fate, replace that Coke with your recommended eight glasses of water a day. Thanks to better blood circulation from the water, you’ll find your skin will be much healthier looking. It’ll almost make those early mornings worth facing.
