Great ways to improve your appearance

If you’re like most people, the holidays can mean long days on the couch, as we recharge from work and school commitments However there’s no reason why you can’t use this time to improve your appearance instead.

Here are some top tips to ensure you’re looking better than every within a few weeks:


Whiten your teeth

It’s amazing how much better you can look with whiter teeth, and it’s never been more affordable to make your teeth up to 8 shades whiter. There are many different teeth whitening kits on the market, with some of them promising top-notch results within just seven days.

Along with being cost-effective, whitening your teeth is simple, with easy-to-use trays that you can pop in your mouth while you’re watching Netflix or reading a book. If you’re a little self-conscious about yellowing teeth, you’ll be surprised at the difference a week can make.

Work out

Sure, it can seem like a big commitment to work out when you have so much to do, however even just 20 minutes a day can make a huge difference to your appearance, giving you glowing skin and a toned bod. While a sedate walk may be a good way to relax, if you really want to see results you’ll need to amp it up, so choose high-intensity interval training and strength training to get in great shape as quickly as possible.


Look after your hair

If your strands are looking dull or dry, it may be time for a trim. Unfortunately, many of us leave our haircuts until we absolutely need to go to the hairdresser, meaning they’ll often cut off more than we wanted, and the vicious cycle will start again. If you’re worried that the hairdresser will be a bit too scissor-happy, be very specific about how much you want cut off. Hold up a strand of your hair and show her the precise amount you’re willing to lose, although if your locks are in extremely poor condition, you may need to be prepared to negotiate.

If you’re hoping to keep your hair looking its best, you’ll need to commit to looking after it. Grab some egg yolks, honey, olive oil and coconut oil, mix it all together, and pour it on or dunk your hair into the mixture. Leave it in for an hour before rinsing, and you’ll notice a huge improvement in the texture of your hair.

Drink your water

Along with clearing your skin and flushing out toxins, water simply helps our bodies function more efficiently. As soon as you get up, chug a glass of water and you’ll find yourself feeling better every morning. Extra points if you grab hot water with a squeeze of lemon, as this is a great way to boost your metabolism while getting in a glass of much-needed H20.

Throughout the day, match each coffee with at least two glasses of water, and replace fizzy drinks completely. Within a few weeks you’ll notice an improvement in both your body and skin.
