Build a Body Like a Boss
Beauty is not only about make-up, hair and style. Although those things are fabulous and are cherished by all beauty bosses, your physical health also plays a huge part in your beauty bundle. What you put into your body, and the energy you exert from it, can have an effect on your skin, your body composition, your health and most importantly your mind. Here are 3 tips to help you build your body like a boss.
- What you put in, always comes out: Ever had a week where your skin was flaring up uncontrollably? Pesky acne breaking through your typically flawless skin, pores the size of Texas, and wrinkles out the wazoo? This can be a side effect of an unhealthy and grease-filled diet. It’s not a coincidence that you had two cheeseburgers this week, and your face has a shiny new pimple. The food you eat, from the wrinkle-fighting antioxidants in fruits and vegetables to hydrating healthy fats in fish—may matter to your skin almost as much as it does to your waistline – so just remember that the next time you choose that tasty meal. Of course, it’s perfectly fine to indulge every now and again. Just don’t make it a daily or weekly habit.
- Aesthetics are fading, but health can last a lifetime: Most people decide it’s time to change up their health habits when they’ve noticed a widening waist, or they are trying to slim down for a special event. Looking good on the outside is a good motivator, but it isn’t the goal that matters most. In order to live a long life and look fabulous while doing it, you must make a lifestyle change. Not just a quick fix or fad diet. If you want that dream body to last, and hope to celebrate an 80th birthday someday, it’s important to maintain healthy habits for life. Cardiac-related health problems and deaths are also directly correlated with how much exercise you do, and what kinds of food you are putting in your body. There is still much work to be done in preventing heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. The good thing is we also know that better dietary habits can help improve your health quickly, and you can act on that knowledge by making small changes that add up over time.

- Don’t be afraid to lift weights: A lot of women have fallen for the myth that if they lift weights, they will somehow wake up and miraculously grow a beard, six inches taller and become a man. That, people, is absolutely false. Lifting weights not only creates a more toned and firm physique, but it also makes a body that’s built to last. The more muscle your body has, the more fat you continue to burn through the day and over time. This way you don’t have to kill yourself by doing hours of cardio daily to stay in shape. With the help of minimal cardio and maximum weight lifting, you can build a banging body that’s here for years and years to come.
