Do you have a special occasion on the horizon? Perhaps 2018 is the year you get married, maybe you have the holiday of a lifetime booked or maybe you have a school reunion, family reunion or some other get together which will involve lots of people seeing you again? You might just want to get out of a style rut and look great for yourself this year- either way, here are just a few of the ways you can go about it!
First you need to work out of you should lose weight, gain weight or just stay the same but work on toning up. Use a BMI calculator and aim to get within the weight range that it states. Not only will this be your best weight for health reasons but you will also look your best too- neither too big or too small. If you want to change your weight, it’s your diet that has the most effect. Work out the number of calories you will need to consume to get to your desired weight, and then use a tracking app like MyFitnessPal to make sure you’re on track. Creating delicious yet healthy recipes means you will still enjoy your food and won’t feel deprived, Pinterest has loads of ideas. To work on your shape and tone up your muscles it’s exercise that will do the job. You can build lean muscle which will really shape your body, and better muscle tone will improve any jiggly bits you’re not a fan of! Exercise alone won’t contribute much to weight loss unless you’re reducing your calories as well, although exercise will always make you feel better either way. If your special occasion isn’t until the summer or later on, you have loads of time to make these changes, and by the time it rolls around you will feel fantastic!
Hair, Skin and Nails
Healthy hair, skin and nails will always contribute towards you looking and feeling great. These things are all a reflection of what’s going on inside the body, and so working on your overall health will lead to improvement. If you have specific skin issues, be brave and speak to your GP or a dermatologist. They can tell you how to resolve or manage any conditions so you don’t have to just deal with it. Go to the hairdresser and have a fresh new cut and colour, it will feel healthier and more vibrant and a change might be needed if you’ve been wearing it the same way for years. Use products to keep it hydrated and protected.
Outfit and Accessories
Finally when you’re looking and feeling your best, you will want to showcase this in the best possible way for your event! A flattering outfit will show off how hard you’ve worked with your eating plan and the gym. An LBD is always a firm favourite, choose a cut which shows off your best feature- whether it’s arms, legs, back or decolletage. Some glamorous accessories like an Otomo Pearl Necklace and some Louboutin designer shoes will really give your outfit the wow factor. Have your hair and makeup professionally done on the day to really finish the look.
