This is what makes you beautiful….
September, 9th 2020
We at Youseum know and reinforce the message that you are beautiful the way you are. We are convinced that true beauty comes from within and that the glow on your face is a mere reflection of the way you treat – and sometimes spoil – yourself. This is why we have curated this list of tips that will help you remain young, beautiful, and most importantly, YOU!
1. Cut down salt
We all know sugar is harmful, but did you know the same goes for salt?! Aside from the health risks that come from consuming too much salt, your skin quality may also change due to dehydration. Of course, one should not cut out salt completely but it might be worth your while to use salt as little as possible. Instead, why not take that excess salt and mix it with some olive oil to give your skin an excellent peeling?
2. Use sunscreen – always!
The bad news is that UV light is one of the main reasons that your skin ages. The good news is that by applying sunscreen you can prolong this aging process! We recommend that you use sunscreen at all times, not just on the sunny days. UV light is always around, regardless of clouds and clear skies. PS: make sure to apply it on your neck and hands as well!
3. Moderation is key
Try not to force yourself to eat healthy foods and exercise everyday – learn to listen to your body. Resting is important too. Don’t be afraid to treat yourself to a nice cocktail or a lazy night in. Sometimes, we get so caught up in our healthy, fast lifestyles that we often forget to slow down and enjoy the little things in life.
4. Move, baby!
We have all heard this one before! Doing at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise a day can make your life longer and healthier. No one is expecting you to run a marathon or to hit the gym. Everything that brings your heart rate up can be considered as exercise. Try to include a fast walk or cycling into your routine (maybe leave the house 10 minutes later on purpose, so you have no choice 😉).
5. Come in touch with collagen-based food
It is not always easy to stay on track and pursue wholesome nutrition throughout the day. This is where nutritional supplements come into the game. While supplements cannot replace a nourishing diet, there are certain nutritions which are more difficult to gain from everyday foods. This is why Team You has personally come in touch with the Startup Hebe Foods to try out their collagen products! Not only is it beneficial for your bones, since it can reduce joint inflammation and pain, it also gives your skin a healthy glow. Check out Hebe if you want to know more about it!
6. Have fun!
Being happy is the best recipe for a glowy and youthful appearance! Increase your mood by cutting out unhealthy habits and moving onto fun activities with friends. Youseum is the perfect place to unwind, relax and get creative!
