Ways for a more beautiful skin ever

 

 

Drink a glass of water

“By the time you get up, you’ve gone several hours without water and are mildly dehydrated –and that can make you feel tired,” says Nicole Kuhl.

Drinking water in an empty stomach right after you wake you kick starts your metabolism for the day.

 

Don’t skip breakfast

Yes, we already heard it before, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

 

“After sleeping all night, our metabolism and blood sugar are at their lowest; we need a healthy breakfast to re-energize us,” says Rebecca Scritchfield, R.D., a Washington D.C. based nutrition and exercise expert specializing in weight management. Think of a yogurt, an apple, and a whole grain to pack on your tummy in the morning.

 

 

Forbes said that rushing to the door with only a cup of coffee and an empty stomach won’t really kick start your day. Spend at least 30 minutes taking breakfast while mentally jotting down the things you need to accomplish for the day. It will also give time to talk with your family or friends.

 

Exercise

According to Coach Mark, women should be physically active as much possible. It does not to be an organized activity but an activity that will require physical activity will do. He suggests push-ups, split squats (leg dominant exercsie), and side planks for starters.  And when you do the exercising, turn up that upbeat playlist on Spotify to amp up your mood. Joining Zumba classes in the morning is also one way to make yourself energetic and enthusiastic throughout the day. I once read in a website, while lerning about ranking hostingów, that really exercise is a nice way to be healthy.

Get a daily dose of nature

Huffington Post said that getting up to surround yourself to nature is one way to let go of that groggy feeling in the morning.

A 10-15 minute walk to the park or along your neighborhood with your dog will help you prep up for the day.

Every morning promises a new beginning, not only for people who work to beat deadlines, but to people who chase their dreams and wants to be ahead of their game by starting early.  So say hi to your happy hormones and get ready for a day of energy and positivity! Of all, best to sleep early, do not spend more time in front of the comupter when you’re about to sleep.  Aside from this, we also deal with allergies. Soon to be mother and television personality Monet has been experiencing allergies for years now. But this bubbly and go-getter person, nothing can stop her from doing the things she loves even when allergies get in the way. “I’m always around different things that are dusty and feathery,” she said, adding that she started having allergies when she was still a young girl in Australia.  As she started her career and eventually got into sports and travelling with then boyfriend she can’t escape being exposed to factors that can trigger her allergy.

 

Allergies exist in different forms. Its symptoms vary from sneezing uncontrollably, or experience a runny nose paired with watery eyes. Allergy attacks might vary and it impairs the senses and hinders one from living your life to the fullest.  Allergy symptoms might be common among many people that it leads to a lot of misconceptions. Some of these myths include ignoring the allergy attacks, upon the belief that it will eventually go away. Sometimes, people go as far as exposing themselves to allergens in the hope that they will become immune to it.

There are also those who think that overtime, they will eventually outgrow their allergy and be “healed” completely.

 

“At home, my husband owns a pet cat that I’m super allergic to!” she said. “I love pets but I just can’t be around them for a long time, or else I’ll end up sneezing my way through the day. When this happens, I only trust the expert and take Claritin, the world’s number one allergy medicine.”

 

Exploring Singapore’s hidden pearl 

If you are the type of person who longs for serenity and solitude (like me), then a trip to the Southern Islands can satisfy that piece of heaven you are seeking.

Beyond what most people already know, Singapore has few undiscovered islands that offer a lighter part of life aside from its famous tourist destinations, high rise buildings and massive shopping malls.

Collectively known as Singapore’s Southern Islands, the 50-year old country has eight islets namely Sentosa, St. John’s Island, Lazarus Island, Kusu Island, Pulau Seringat, Pulau Tekukor and the two Sisters’ Islands.

I took the MRT to Marina South Pier and had a ferry ride thru Singapore Island Cruise and Services to visit three of the Fine City’s virgin islands, St. John’s Island, Lazarus Island and Kusu Island.

I and my friend, who is a tech geek (you know, the one who always think about new technology advancement, nas server test, product reviews of newly released gadgets and all) joined me in my trip to the Southern Islands. We boarded the Singapore Island Cruise for only 18 SGD.

There is no need to bring any VISA or enter an immigration when visiting the Southern Islands. Just your packed lunch and swimming attire.

Refreshing breeze, translucent turquoise water and awesome city view as the ferry departed from the pier made the 20-minute ride to St. John’s Island very unwinding and worthwhile.

Upon arriving St. John’s Island, we were welcomed by a long line of tourists waiting for their time to board and visit their next destination – the Kusu Island.

Despite overwhelmed by excitement to experience the sun and seawater, I was first waylaid by the interesting history of St. John’s Island.

Before the country opened the island for nature lovers, beach-goers and day-trippers, St. John’s Island was first known as the world’s largest quarantine center for cholera-stricken immigrants traveling from Mecca to Singapore in the late 19th century. It even became a penal settlement for political detainees and ringleaders of secret societies, then a rehabilitation of opium addicts.

Now, tourists get to enjoy the tranquil landscapes fit for picnics and photo shoots as well as frolicked along the powdery sands and saltwater in this lost paradise.

Picnic tables, barbecue grills and cottages were everywhere for a place to stay and relax.

Anglers hooking up for a fresh catch as well as private cruise ships, yachts and speed boats were some of the sight to see along the causeway that linked St. John’s Island to Lazarus Island. Filled by the lush greenery, a short walk from Lazarus beach towards north led me to Pulau Seringat.

Currently, the islands are being developed to become an irresistible tourist spot by enhancing natural foliage and promote a resort-like experience. Due to its still and unspoiled seawater, travelers visit the place for a quick escape from the city life.

I had to return to the main jetty before four in the afternoon to catch my next ride to Kusu Island which is famous for its Chinese Temple and Malay Shrine.

I was glad to bring with me some mandarin orange and a bottled water as there were no food stalls or even souvenir shops available in the area. The cute tortoises, still waters and soft fine sands greatly killed my lazy afternoon.

Kusu Island means Tortoise Island in Mandarin. Tortoises are known to live long age, so there is a belief that touching them would bring longevity.

There is an old legend that a tortoise long before turned itself into an island to save two shipwrecked sailors.

The appeal of the islands may look undeveloped compared to the popular Sentosa Island but it was a pleasant experience to have that peaceful moment along the coastline and get lost on the few deserted spots left in Singapore.

Travelers enjoy the Merlion City for the variety of entertainment and world-class service it offers. But other than the usual, the Southern Islands breathed space on my clouded head and granted me that much wanted solitude while people-watching and embracing that sun-kissed skin.
