Feeling bored? Thinking about a change or full-fledged makeover? When it comes to your beauty regime, change is good! We called upon several experts in dermatology, longevity, psychology and even plastic surgery for a few unexpected ideas to consider adding to your beauty bucket list. Check 'em out!
Only drink water for 30 days. Imagine the benefits for your skin, hair, nails and body when you cut out sugars, caffeine, alcohol, and anything artificial! Dr. Christopher Calapai D.O., anti-aging and stem cell specialist told us to, "Be sure to drink pure water and if it gets boring add lemon, lime or blueberries. Within the first week you will notice skin that is plump, glowing, clear and soft. By the second week people will take notice asking what you have done. The difference, for those who stick to a water only beverage plan for 30 days is astounding," the doc said.
Ditch all facial products for a month. Look at your bathroom counter-top and drawers. Product overload is common. Clear the clutter and clear your skin! Our friend Dr. Kally Papantoniou, board certified dermatologist in New York urges people to get rid of old expired skincare and get back to basics.
Using a simple non-comedogenic facial cleanser and a moisturizer with SPF each day for a month will help the skin to heal itself and return to a natural state. After 2 weeks of a simplified skincare regimen, you may see fewer and less intense breakouts, less dryness or less oil.
Change your hair color and style. It's quite common for women to drastically change their hair after a break-up, but why wait for an emotional upheaval? Have long hair? Try a pixie cut! Have a short brown bob? Go blonde!
Dr. Sanam Hafeez, NYC based licensed neuropsychologist explains that our hair is a huge part of our identity. "When we really want a change in our lives, the fastest way to shift your mind towards forward progression is to alter our appearance in a major way. The best part with experimenting with hair is that it can grow back and you can enjoy different styles during the grow out process."
