Truly beautiful people are not simply beautiful because of their bone structure or the symmetry of their faces and bodies. A person with good architecture can be attractive, but some people never progress beyond this. Beautiful people have a sparkle and confidence that the merely attractive lack. These folks not only have a spiffy wardrobe and know how to put on makeup, but they engage in daily habits that make them feel their best. They know that if they feel their best, they’re going to look their best. Here are four of their best morning secrets:
1. Wake Up Early
Wake up early and wake up the same time every day, even on weekends. If a person lets themselves sleep in on the weekends, they’ll find it that much harder to return to their early rising routine during the work week. Some people even get up before dawn. This is a time for quiet contemplation and to plan the day ahead and not watch or read the news. Even the zombie apocalypse can wait.
2. Brush and Floss the Teeth
It’s important to brush and floss the teeth at least twice a day. Use a soft bristle brush, and squeeze out a bit of toothpaste that’s the size of a pearl. Brush the teeth in tiny circular motions, and make sure to get the back of the teeth and the teeth in the back of the mouth. Then, rinse out the mouth and gently run floss between the teeth. Again, don’t forget the back teeth, which are easy to neglect. Remember to brush the tongue and the roof of the mouth. The dentists at Dr. Jerry F. Maymi & Associates recommend that people floss twice a day—just as often as you brush—and if you’re serious about oral health, schedule regular dental visits. White teeth and fresh breath are an instant mood booster, and a healthy mouth is a beautiful mouth.
3. Drink Warm Lemon Water
Fill a glass full of warm water, cut a lemon and squeeze some juice into it. Place a strainer over the glass to catch seeds. Lemon water hydrates the body after hours of no water, and the warmth of the water is not a shock to the system. The oils in the lemon prepare the body for the job of digestion, and their fragrance is stimulating.
4. Exfoliate the Body
This is what gives beautiful people that glow. The body is always depositing dead skin cells on the very top layer of the epidermis. Before getting into the shower, rub them off with a dry loofah or an exfoliating glove or towel. Start at the tips of the toes and fingers and work inward toward the heart.
These tips will give you a morning boost of energy, and keep you looking happy and healthy for years to come.
