In our opinion, the best beauty secrets and regimens are always the most basic and natural. Making educated decisions is key, as is doing your homework. We did ours, and we'd like to share our insights!
1) Have a "Routine" that you follow every single day. In order to see results in your beauty routine, you need to have consistency. That means, have a simple plan for yourself that you follow daily with your skin care, fitness routine and daily diet. This is not a "temporary program," this will be your way of life. Just because this will become a daily effort, doesn't mean it has to be a strenuous one...just as it takes time to form any habit, good or bad, it will take time to adjust to and eventually it will be something that is a part of your life. Having a "routine" is one of the best basic secrets to long- term beauty.
2) B.Youneek believes that "natural" in every aspect of beauty, is best because it's what nature intended. While today's technology in the beauty & fitness industries is quite impressive, it's not always affordable, healthy or natural. Having a facelift may erase wrinkles for a few years, but do you really want to look like a wax statue with no facial expressions and spend a small fortune to boot? There are natural, inexpensive and non- invasive alternatives to fighting wrinkles, cellulite, fat, acne, etc... There is a natural alternative to every single conventional beauty service out there, you just need to find it. Do your homework! B.Youneek is working on something very exciting for you on natural beauty alternatives, so stay tuned!
3) Take some time to unwind. Yet another very basic, but very important ingredient to staying beautiful all- round. Stress creates wrinkles, contributes to weight gain, moodiness, unwillingness to stick to your "routine" and can create disease in some extreme cases. Take a moment for yourself every day, and make this a part of your routine, even if it's only 15 minutes. C'mon, you can afford that! One of our favorite ways to unwind is to meditate for just a few minutes to be grateful for what we have and visualize our goals. It's a great way to relax and bring positive energy to your day.
We know it's hard in today's world to make time for yourself, but if you don't do it...no one else will. Respect, love and accept yourself first before anyone else. We hope you've enjoyed this article, and we wish you a beautiful, blessed day!
