6 Surprising Benefits of Exercise for Beauty

If you ask many people why they are seriously engaging in exercise, the most common answer is to stay in shape. Both men and women have the desire to lose excess fat and have a body that resembles that of a model. Well, this has everything to do with both beauty and health. But what most people do not know is that exercise promotes beauty in many other ways. Whether you are a woman or not, this article is for you. Follow it to the letter to enjoy all the benefits.

Staying in Shape
This has already been mentioned, but it is worth elaborating. Exercise helps engage the body to burn excess fat instead of storing it. Therefore, one maintains a lean body that is in perfect shape. Those who are already obese can also lose belly fat if they are serious about exercise. Weightlifting and cardio promote the burning of calories. If what is burned is greater than what you have been consuming, then the result will be visible after some time.

Promotes Skin Health

Another benefit of exercises is maintaining healthy skin. Everyone would like to have soft skin that looks amazing. In addition to food and water, workouts also have a way of improving your skin. Women who jog or visit the gym regularly usually maintain soft skin that rarely gets acne or pimples. Men also enhance skin health by exercising.

Slows the Aging Process

Most of us have heard that exercise slows down the aging process by balancing the body hormones. If you look at experienced athletes, including those who use supplements from the Steroids Evolution website, they all look young and vibrant even if they are older. Although aging will catch up with you, exercise will make it a graceful process with few illnesses if any.

Prevents Muscle Loss

Naturally, a human body should lose muscle as it ages. While this is normal, there are many factors that can trigger it to occur more quickly. Certain illnesses usually trigger muscle loss, and this can make a middle-aged person look old and sickly. However, working out often prevents this in an amazing way. Did you know that exercising even reduces wrinkles?

Better Breasts

Swimming improves the breasts of a woman. But there are many other exercises that will have the same effect. This is why women who want to have firm and larger breasts should exercise a lot. Most cardio workouts are good, but weight exercises that target the chest and abs are the best. When the belly fat is gone, your breasts will start to improve.

Healthy Hair

Unfortunately, most people are oblivious to the fact that exercise can benefit the hair. Having healthy hair is important to both women and men. The more you exercise, the less your hair will fall out especially when this is accompanied by a healthy diet. See, exercising has numerous benefits for your beauty, and this is why you should take it seriously.

That's all for today.. Hope you found this post helpful for you..see you in the next one ,till then stay happy ..

How to Stay Positive and Motivated during this Pandemic Situation (COVID-19)
How to Stay Positive and Motivated during this Pandemic Situation (COVID-19)

Each passing days are bringing lots of curiosity and fear inside us . We are so confused to find the answer of the uncertain future . The world is suffering today and we are just helpless . The whole nation is running with an uncertainty. We are under lockdown for 21days which is about to finish in a day or two . Some states have already increased the lockdown period for some more days . The death rate and positive cases rate  are increasing with every passing hours . All these will definitely make anyone feel down . But we need to be strong now , we have to be united mentally not physically. We need to remember that , " Together we can win the battle" .

There is also a video of mine on this topic too , please watch HERE 👇🏻.

As we all are under lockdown and can't step out , becoming frustrated is very normal . This is  completely new experience for everyone . If you will ask me , to be very honest Initially everything was vomplfine with me but gradually as time increased it felt really suffocated to me . Because it is not easy to stay inside a 2bhk apartment house with two really small kids (one is a baby) and moreover without any help . My husband has to go office daily as usual and I have to manage everything all alone . I am a very socialize person and this was so difficult for me at least . But eventually I started accepting things and added few changes in my lifestyle and daily routine . Trust me guys those changes really made difference.

So here I will share those tiny ,simple changes which helps me to stay positive  and motivated during this pandemic situation.

1. Don't stick to news channels or social media 

 Watching news and staying updated is good but currently I will not advise to check news channels  every now and then . The more you will try to get updated about covid19 cases ,the more you will become restless and afraid . Because the numbers are increasing so frequently . In the same way try to stay away from social media as much as possible . Now a days social media is so disturbing to be very honest .

2. Start doing meditation and yoga

Meditation brings peace in mind and a day when starts with meditation and yoga ,definitely will be peaceful day . Because of the outside stress and lockdown , we can feel exhausted sometimes and it's quite natural . Making the mind calm is necessary to bring out the energy inside you . And yoga or pranayam is very necessary these days . Try to include the respiratory system related yogasanas like Kapalbhati and anulombilom ,etc.

3. Watch comedy movies and web series , listen music 

I love watching comedy movies ,web series ,etc. You can watch those to make yourself relaxed after all laughing is the best treat for your body . It us said that music is the best therapy to cure any kind of depression. You can listen good music according to your choice and dance too ..

4. Engage yourself to some creativity things / Play with Kids

This is time to explore your inner desire ,hobby ,etc. You can engage yourself doing anything you love to do but was not getting enough time to fulfill . activities like  crafting ,gardening , dancing ,cooking, singing , painting ,etc .. Along with that if you have kids at hone , make sure to engage them with you too .

5. Read books

I have developed my love towards book reading these days . Unfortunately I don't have many books right now at home but I manage to read online (ebooks). Trust me I am enjoying reading book like never before . I am going to review few of my books reviews really soon .

This is a really tough find for all of us and the whole world is struggling to get out of this pandemic situation. We should stand together now (not physically but mentally ofcourse) to defeat this situation. Try to ignore or avoid all kind of negative vibes and try to be positive all the time . If we break down now ,it will be really difficult for us to stand straight again.
#StayHome and #StaySafe .

Loads of love and God bless us all.

8 Simple steps to follow to get clear and healthy looking skin

Who doesn't like clear and healthy looking skin !! For that we end up buying tons of beauty products . It is always important to use the proper skincare products according to your skin type. Except that a proper diet and healthy lifestyle also impacts on your skin texture . I personally don't believe in applying lots of chemical based products on face . I always follow some of my homemade skincare regimen and quite happy with the result. So today I will share 8 simple tips by following which you can get clear and healthy looking skin in a week or so .

1.  Follow Strict Bedtime Routine :

8 Simple steps to follow to get clear and healthy looking skin

Make sure to follow a strict bed time routine . Sleep around 9.30 - 10pm. is a perfect time . Also follow a proper skincare before bed time . Clean your face , apply a good toner to soothing down the nerves , then apply serum/facial oil and massage a bit and  allow that to penetrate into the skin. Then apply an under eye cream to relax and moisturizes the undereye area . That's all you need to follow before bed time .A good 8-9 hour sleep is must for fresh morning.

2. Remove Makeup at the end of the Day :

Removing makeup every night before going to sleep is must to avoid unwanted skin issues. If you have heavy makeup on , make sure to cleanse the face thoroughly . After that you can also apply sheet mask and put it on overnight .

3. Exfoliate skin twice a week :

Exfoliation is the key to get clear ,dirt free skin . In exfoliation the pores open and skin get cleaned deeply . Make sure to not exfoliate skin more often or daily . Scrubing twice a week is good . You can try homemade scrubs too. Add honey to coffee powder and make a paste . Apply on skin and massage gently . Coffee is good for skin and a great scrubbing agent . Another homemade scrub is , take brown sugar , lemon juice and honey to make a smooth scrub . Avoid chemicals as much as possible to get healthy looking skin.

4. Keep Body Hydrated :

8 Simple steps to follow to get clear and healthy looking skin

Drink lots of water daily to make your body hydrated from within. We always think , we are drinking enough water but in real we are not . Drinking enough water brings a nice healthy glow on face/skin and keeps acne , pimples away from face .

5. Eat Rightly :

Do include fruits , honey, almond , curd, etc. into your daily diet . You can have seasonal fruits . You can have honey with milk too but make sure the milk should be look warm ,not boiling hot . You also can have curd in lunch . Don't forget to start your day with soaked almond . Good food definitely bring good and healthy glow on skin.

6. Avoid Junk Food :

8 Simple steps to follow to get clear and healthy looking skin

Say no to all kind of junk food and fried food and sugar too . Instead of sugar you can take honey or jaggery as a substitute. Dates also work good . Instead of oil use ghee in small quantity. All these are great for skin.

7. Exercise :

Do exercise or walking or yoga daily for 20min at least . Exercise boost up the blood circulation in body .The more you sweat , body will discharge more the impurities and dead skin cells which tends to healthy and clear skin. Meditation also keep mind peace which is again mantra of healthy and happy skin .

8. Clean mobile, pillow cover ,etc. :

Our hand comes in contact of mobile , TV remote through out the day . Germs can come through our hand to skin easily which again cause breakouts on skin . In the same way bedsheet , pillow cover comes in contact to our skin while sleeping. Dirty pillow cover or bedsheet can create skin allergies . Hence proper and regular clean of these things can bring a nice change in your skin texture .

Except all these one more important thing is , don't overdo anything . Don't panic or become possessive about your skin . No stress ,  positive thinking  and stay happy is the key of happy and healthy skin .

Hope you found this post helpful for you . Do share your opinion in comments below . See you in another post , till then take care.

Food to Avoid during Monsoon ( #HealthyMonsoon)

Rain , ginger tea and a steaming plate of pakoras are the best combination to enjoy the monsoon .. While the rain makes you relax from the scorching heat , it also comes with  bags full of various infections and diseases . It is very important to take proper care of our health during monsoon . Food plays an important role in this case .

Everyone advise us since childhood to have green leafy vegetables , fruits , non-veg (increase you are a non-vegetarian) on a regular basis as these are good for our growth and body . But to break the myth here I want to add that we should avoid eating green leafy veggies especially during monsoon . Along with that don't take non-veg or any other heavy food items much during monsoon . This is because during monsoon the digestion process inside our body slows down and you can feel full with small meals too . Because of the moisture and humidity outside our body feels lazy and it is advisable to not have hard to digest food .

During monsoon varities of fruits available and as per experts , you can  go with fresh homemade fruit juice instead to get the most benefits of their nutritional value.

Hence in this post i am going to share with you some foods which you need to avoid especially during monsoon .

1. Leafy Vegetables :

Food to Avoid during Monsoon ( #HealthyMonsoon)

We all know that leafy vegetables are beneficial for good health . But during monsoon it is butterflies avoid these. The dampness and dust over the leaves make them more prone to germs . So do avoid spinach , cauliflower, cabbage ,etc. during monsoon . instead you can go for bitter gourd, tori or tinda . Always was the vegetables thoroughly before cooking.

2. Sea Food :

Food to Avoid during Monsoon ( #HealthyMonsoon)

Monsoon is the breeding season for fishes and prawns , so better to avoid those during this time of the year. You can consume chicken or mutton instead but make sure in smaller quantities . All these are heavy to digest food ,hence taking smaller quantity is advisable . Also cook non-veg food with extra care to avoid as my kind of stomach infection .

3. Juices and Fruits from roadside vendors :

Food to Avoid during Monsoon ( #HealthyMonsoon)

Any food item that has exposed to monsoon air for a longer period of time ,should be avoided . A good food habit is , never consume uncovered food . The road side vendors keep the fruits in open air and also keep the cut fruits before hand which is more in contact with the contaminated air . Hence better to avoid that . Only make fresh fruit juices at home and consume immediately. Also always make sure to wash the fruits well and cut fresh and have immediately .

4. Fried food :

Food to Avoid during Monsoon ( #HealthyMonsoon)

Yes, you read right , fried food should be avoided during monsoon. I know pakoras, samosas, kachoris have seen everywhere during this time as our taste bud love crunchy and salty food during  the rainy season but we need to control  ourselves. Because of the humid weather outside human's body's digestion process go slow . Only our body needs plenty of water to stay hydrated inside . Consumption of oily or fried food can cause stomach upset , gastronomical problems . Along with that never eat street food like golgappas , chat ,etc. as the water used in that can cause bacterial infection in the stomach .

5. Fizzy Drinks :

Food to Avoid during Monsoon ( #HealthyMonsoon)

Such drinks reduce minerals in our body which leads to less enzyme activity in the body . This is not a good sign for our already weak digestive system . Instead of that drink normal boiled water , nimbu pani, shikanji,etc. to keep the body hydrated .

Along with all these , make sure to have light diet in each meal which are easy to digest . Drink clean , boiled water throughout the day . Do maintain your personal hygiene to stay away from the flu and infections .. After all health is wealth .

Wear Bright Colours : 

It's time to add pop of colours to your wardrobe . Vibrant and bright colors go perfectly with monsoon vibes . You should wear some orange colors, mango-ish yellow color and fuschia pink colors .

Along with that bright shade lipsticks also goes well .. All these bright colors will add extra umph to your personality during monsoon .

While traveling or going outside , try to avoid denims, full trousers , long dresses, etc. and do consider shorts, capris , skirts, short dresses . Ideally outfits above or up to knee length is best during the monsoon . Except that if you want to add any fun quaint then wear brightly colored jumpsuits . Also printed lowers look great. Always choose to wear loose fitted clothes during monsoon.

Right Fabric :

During monsoon always choose light weight fabrics like cotton, chiffon, polyester,etc. And avoid to wear jeans, velvet, silk material outfit . We couldn't avoid being drenched  in an unexpected sudden downpour while going outside. In that case the thick material outfit will not dry fast and feels very much uncomfortable . Also silk fabrics get ruined after coming in contact with rain water . Hence always always choose fabric which dries first and doesn't feel uncomfortable on skin .

Tips to Keep the Style Quotient High during Monsoon

Choose Right Footwear :

Footwear also plays an important role during monsoon . We shouldn't wear heels, stilettos and any kind of closed shoes . Like clothes you should go with footwears which are comfortable on feet and safe during monsoon. Choose crocs, rubber footwear, jelly shoes and colorful flip-flops . Wearing leather , suede or velvet shoes is not a wise decision at all . Also invest in a few pairs of colorful monsoon oriented socks (waterproof socks) . Normally these kinds of socks are thicker than the regular socks ,hence it will not allow water to get into and your feet will become dry allbthe time and no fear of bacterial or fungal infection .

Can't miss a handbag :

Not to carry a handbag while stepping out is not a wise decision . Always carry a spacious hand bag and don't forget to put a large polythene and an umbrella inside it . Tote bags come very handy during monsoon .

Tips to Keep the Style Quotient High during Monsoon

Create a Statement look with Umbrella :

Cute, bright , funky pattern umbrellas are so much in fashion right now . Bring out the child inside you and get dome quirky printed umbrellas to add a x-factor yo the whole look . Pastel color umbrellas also look good during monsoon .

Minimal Accessories and Makeup :

When it comes to jewelry ,try yo keep it as minimal as possible and it will be good to voice metal ornaments . For makeup , always keep it neutral or natural . Apply waterproof makeup products only to avoid any kind of messy . You can play with your lip color from nude to bright as per your mood .

These are the simple things you should remember and execute in your lifestyle  and enjoy the monsoon like a queen .

When I was around 6months pregnant with my first baby , my gynacologist told me that I should talk with my baby (who is inside my tummy) now and it will impact on baby's brain growth . A baby can hear his mom's voice after 6months of pregnancy and when the baby come out , he will be familiar with his mom's voice . Hence I was taking to my  baby all the time . It was like reading story books ,novels, rhymes, random talks ,etc..  And now i must say it actually impact of baby's mental growth.. Now during my second pregnancy i also did the same ..

How to make a baby ready for story time :

There are specific books for small babies . In those books written part is less and bright pictures are more . Initially babies don't show any interest in books or your stories but you have to push yourself hard to make the baby comfortable . Initially they will only like to grab the papers and put in mouth . You have to make funny sounds while explaining the story . Always try to make the story from the pictures and don't go much with the written part . Initially it should be like play and read kind thing . Set a perfect time routine for the story time . Bed time is the best in this case . Another benefit is baby fell asleep easily with bed time book reading habit .
