A Day in the Life of a Woman
A woman during this modern age has many daily responsibilities and obligations to fulfill from her partner and children to her career and family and friends. Making time for self-care and self-help can be a full-on challenge. Any woman also has much more independence and choices to make compared to any other historical time. She can be a full-time mother and wife but also strive to achieve career and personal goals. The modern woman also looks much different than in historical times. Women can multi-task and also accomplish many tasks in one day. However, time self-care is almost never a high priority or on any of the multiple to-do lists. This is because most women will feel guilty if they partake in self-care. Some women even just plain out forget.
Mental and emotional health is very important to the well-being of any woman. If you are not taken care of properly, how can you fully do anything else? Time to unwind, breathe, or even nap are all important to the mental and emotional health of women. Women can handle a lot, but everyone has their breaking limit also.
Self Care is Important for Women
Self-care is formally defined as a noun:
- the process of taking specific measures to preserve or improve one's own health.
- the way of taking an active role in protecting one's own well-being and happiness, particularly during periods of stress.
This can increase self-worth, self-confidence, and self-esteem. Self-care needs to be maintained daily, morning or evening is the best time. Some great ideas for self-care include soaking in the tub with candles and music for an extended amount of time, going shopping for something special that is just for yourself or even indulging in a quiet favorite meal alone.
The Top Five Tips for Women to Look Amazing
There are many things a woman can do to look amazing every day and at all times. Starting from the inside out is always the best method. There are some tips to follow that are very beneficial and they do not include applying makeup or even doing nails. Adding and or subtracting certain things from a woman's lifestyle could also help to look even more amazing than ever before. Certain diet changes and exercise can also help a woman to look amazing as well. Really it is just a matter of self-care and self-love that is necessary to look and feel amazing all, well most, of the time.
1. Always Use Lip Gloss.
Applying lip gloss will accentuate the mouth but also keep lips silky and smooth instead of dry and rough. This will also add more attention to the smile. Lip gloss, with or without color, can have shimmer, glitter, or even an extra wet look. There is always something special about a woman wearing lip gloss, especially if nothing else.
2. Always Moisturize After Showering.
After every shower or bath, be sure to generously moisturize your skin and face with a lotion. Do not ever use body lotion on the face as it is too thick and creamy which can clog pores, causing breakouts. Skin is stripped away from its natural moisturizers as it is washed and rinsed then dried. Moisturizing will help to replenish lost moisture which will decrease wrinkles and leave skin looking soft and supple. Also, never shower in hot water which can suck out moisture from the skin quickly.
3. Get Enough Sleep Every Night.
Many women have dark circles and or puffy eyes from lack of sleep. Lack of sleep is something everyone struggles with because of everything else that is going on in their life. The average person should be getting at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night. In reality, the average person only gets 4 to 6 hours of sleep per night. Finding more time to sleep allows cells to renew and rejuvenate for healing and repairing. This does not happen or only partially happens when there is a lack of adequate sleep hours. Sleep should be a priority instead of social media or other distractions.
4. Tint Eyebrows and Eyelashes.
This is just like applying hair color to the head. This is specially formulated for delicate eyelashes and stubborn eyebrow hair. Tinting them in a shade or two darker than the natural color will make eyes pop with or without makeup. So no matter what, it will stay and not wash away. Having more defined eyes is great for bringing out natural beauty but also gives eyelashes and eyebrows a fuller and more natural appearance that will last longer. Most tints of this kind will last an average of 4 to 6 weeks, sometimes even 8 weeks. For a less permanent option, there is also henna available for tinting eyelashes and eyebrows.
5. Smile More!
It does take the use of more muscles to frown than it does to smile. But smiling also releases certain chemicals within the brain to feel better. Any person looks so much better whenever they smile. Whether a big or small smile, with or without teeth showing, it portrays happiness and a positive aura for that person. The face is positioned in just the right way while smiling, to look warm and friendly. This is a great way to also feel better and spread more smiles!
