Spring has arrived and so have the party invitations! Whether you are going to a wedding or just an exciting event, feeling your best is the only way to go! Aside from finding the perfect outfit and accessories, try incorporating the tips below a week or so before your event to ensure that you are feeling confident, sexy, and ready to go!
1. Drink Up – Water is key. Drink as much water as you can to help flush out toxins, clear up and give skin a radiant glow. If you aren’t a fan of plain water, try using a water bottle infuser and adding fresh berries, mint, and/or citrus fruits.
2. Eat Clean – Cut out excess sugars, salts, and processed foods to avoid inflammation, bloating, and break-outs. Really try and stay away from anything artificial (yes, even sweeteners) or processed. Stick to our mantra of “eating foods with ingredients you can read.”
3. Incorporate greens – While this sounds like a no brain-er, sometimes we forget the power of green veggies. Greens are rich in fiber, vitamins, keeps you feeling full longer and helps control hunger. Put your greens in a smoothie, spruce up salads, or add more veggies alongside your protein. We promise, your body will thank you!
4. Exfoliate – The purpose of exfoliating is to get rid of the dead skin cells and expose the fresh ones. If this isn’t something you do regularly, we recommend exfoliating a few days before the event in case any bumps surface. If you are really worried about trying something new before a big event, skip this step to avoid any mishaps. To learn more about exfoliation, take a look at this article written by Dr. Murad.
5. Arm Weights – Invest in 2-3 pound weights and do a few exercises 2-3x during the week. We love this video and have used it regularly to keep our arms fit and flab-free.
6. Sleep – There is no mystery that sleep is key to looking fresh and fabulous! Poor sleep can lead to inflammation, stress, and depriving your body of its natural renewal process (and allowing those healthy skin cells to grow) so get some extra shut eye in!
