Top 10 Beauty Tips From Head to Toe

1. A healthy diet equals healthy skin.
There is nothing as important to healthy skin and hair as a healthy diet loaded with vitamins and nutrients. Fruits and vegetables can help boost the skin’s natural defences against sun damage and wrinkles. Start each day with an Herbalife Formula 1 Nutritious Mixed Soy Powder Drink to ensure you are getting the best nutrition possible for healthy skin and hair.

2. Take a daily multivitamin.
Your body needs total nutrition to promote healthy, younger-looking skin and a good multi-vitamin is a great source for antioxidants.

3. Apply sunscreen from head to toe.
Minimising exposure to the sun and using sunscreen are vital steps in our everyday beauty regimens. Sun damage leads to premature ageing by contributing to fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots on the skin. Daily application of a moisturiser with SPF 15 or above not only helps protect you from the damaging effects of the sun during ordinary, everyday exposure, but also helps achieve healthy, beautiful skin.

4. No smoking!
Smoking has negative effects on the entire body, including the skin. It robs skin cells of much needed oxygen, which leads to fine lines and wrinkles. Smoking can interfere with the skin’s collagen and elastin fibers - which give our skin its tone and elasticity – and can cause wrinkling and premature sagging. On top of all that, because nicotine is a diuretic, smoking dries out the skin. The bottom line: Smoking is a major no-no for the skin.

5. Avoid caffeine and alcohol.
Both caffeine and alcohol accelerate the loss of water from the body and, unfortunately, the skin in particular. Excess intake of these substances can be very dehydrating, diminishing smoothness and softness of the skin. An extreme amount of alcohol can also cause capillaries to break under the skin, resulting in red patches. When it comes to caffeine, it’s important to remember that chocolate, tea and sodas often contain the stimulant – not just coffee. Be sure to use the Herbalife SKIN Purifying Mint Clay Mask to help alleviate the effects of dehydration.

6. Get your beauty sleep!
It’s called “beauty sleep” for a reason, and eight hours a night makes a real difference. A good night’s sleep not only helps with mental clarity and energy, but also helps the body’s healing and repairing processes. During sleep, the body (including the skin) works to repair the damage it incurred throughout the day. To aid that process, apply Herbalife SKIN Replenishing Night Cream before going to bed. A good night’s sleep can help to eliminate puffy and irritated eyes, dark circles and a pale complexion.

7. Avoid fluids close to bedtime.
If you want to look your best in the morning, here is a simple tip: Stop drinking fluids at least two to three hours before going to bed. When you consume too much fluid prior to bedtime, you run the risk of waking up puffy, especially under the eyes. If this happens reach for the Herbalife SKIN Firming Eye Gel to help improve skin’s elasticity.

8. Lather, rinse, repeat!
A “bad hair day” can most definitely ruin our mood. We can be so rushed in the morning that our hair doesn’t get the full attention it needs to look healthy, shiny and beautiful. We don’t scrub the scalp enough to remove excess oils and buildup, and we don’t completely rinse shampoo and conditioner out of our hair, resulting in unmanageable locks. Rinse, rinse and rinse again to ensure that all traces of shampoo and conditioner have been washed out of the hair. If you can bear it, use cool water to seal the hair’s cuticle to give you more shine.

9. It’s not all about the face!
We devote so much attention to the face that we tend to neglect the rest of the body. Yes, the face is very important and commands most of our visual attention; but the beauty of a fabulous face can quickly be overwhelmed by other less appealing body parts. Beauty from head to toe is the best rule of thumb. Pay attention to your hands and nails, and make sure they are always moisturised to avoid a rough, scaly look. Don’t forget the elbows! Scaly elbows are screaming for moisture and can look unattractive if ignored. Moisturise your d├ęcolletage to avoid a dry, crepey appearance in the neck and chest area. Pay attention to your feet. Be sure to keep your toes and heels moisturised and free of dry, ashy skin. The Herbalife Herbal Aloe Bath and Body products are perfect for the entire body.

10, Go ahead and SMILE!
The guaranteed go-to thing in any daily beauty regimen is a great big smile. A smile lights up your entire face, making you look young, friendly and approachable. What smile isn’t beautiful? The best part is that smiles are contagious, allowing us to create a cascade of beauty as we smile throughout the day.

Why Free Radicals Are The Root Of All Diseases

What is free radicals

In small quantities, Free Radicals can be beneficial to our body. They protect white blood cells from being attacked by invading bacteria, mould, viruses and foreign bodies. However, when free radicals are in excess, they become harmful and destroy body cells and tissues. The harmful free radicals multiply under the influence of smoking, stress or explore to contaminated materials, strong sunlight and radiation. They also react with fat to produce liqid-peroxides that stick to the wall of blood vessels, causing blockages. When cell membranes are damaged, the functions transmitters are affected. Free radicals can also cause pathological changes when they attack your DNA.

Over time, bodily functions decline. Ageing as well as 90% of illnesses are caused by free radicals while death is caused mainly by lipid peroxides.  

I hope the information useful for you and welcome to leave your comment....

Stay Healthy and Active!

Live your healthy active lifestyle.

At Herbalife, our Healthy Active Lifestyle philosophy is about inspiring you to take the leap to become your best self. We want to make people feel good and help them build a strong sense of self. We want to create a positive community that supports and empowers everyone, no matter what their fitness level or goals are.

People often shy away when they hear the term ‘healthy active lifestyle’ as they imagine having to dedicate hours to extreme workouts. While that certainly counts, a healthy active lifestyle is simply one that contributes positively to your physical and mental well being. It is not as hard as it sounds. Small changes to your daily life and diet can add up to big results in the long term.

Whether you are already fit or just starting out on your fitness journey, you can live a healthier and more active lifestyle.

Eating right is an essential component of a healthy active lifestyle. The food we eat provides us with all the energy we need to survive.

The right diet should include adequate high quality protein, healthy fats and oils and the right carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables, which bring along vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Whatever your starting weight, shape or fitness level, there are physical activities that will be suitable for you and will help you in the direction of living a healthy active lifestyle. Here are 4 pillars of healthy active lifestyles you can maintain to stay fit and healthy in your daily lives.

Start with small changes to your daily life and introduce more easy, low-intensity physical activities into your day. You can walk or cycle instead of driving or taking public transport, use a stationary bicycle or treadmill while watching TV, or take up yoga, aerobic, Pilates or dance classes.

In addition to maintaining your cardiovascular fitness, there are other activities that will focus on helping you strengthen your muscles and body. Get involved in high-intensity sports like triathlons, weights and circuit training, or try training for a full marathon!

Once you are comfortable with easy physical activities challenge yourself take it up another notch with higher intensity workouts like jogging, running, tennis, swimming or cycling. 

Just like the rest of us, professional athletes are confronted with challenges every day – self-doubt, dread, pressure, etc. How do they overcome these to put up the stellar athletic performances that keep the rest of us in awe? 

The secret lies in not just training your body, but your mind as well. Learn to develop the mindset of a champion to help you overcome your own personal challenges – dig deep within yourself to do better each time and learn to face your obstacles with a never-give-up attitude.

Herbalife Global Nutrition Philosophy

At Herbalife, we believe so strongly in Balanced Nutrition that we’ve developed our Herbalife Global Nutrition Philosophy. Balanced Nutrition means getting the right amounts of key nutrients: Up to 30% of our daily calories from healthy fats, 40% from carbohydrates and 30% from proteins. When it comes to fats, it is important to eat less saturated fats and more Omega-3 fatty acids. And we can’t forget to consume 25 grams of fibre each day. 

Herbalife Nutrition

"At Herbalife, we believe that balanced and personalised nutrition supports a healthy, active life. Eating the right foods, combined with supplements, and exercising regularly are key."

Today, there are more overweight or obese people in the world than ever before. Although in the previous 50,000 years, humans obtained a survival benefit from storing fat, changes in the human diet and lifestyle in the past 200 years have resulted in millions of people around the world suffering from obesity.

Studies show that hunter-gatherers used to eat about 800 different varieties of plants. But today, the average intake is only about three servings of fruits and vegetables per day, which doesn’t provide enough of the antioxidants, phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals that are essential for good health.

In addition, highly processed foods with refined starches, sugars, fats, salts and oils provide many calories per bite, but they often don’t contain the essential nutrients that are found in foods, such as fruits and vegetables.

At the same time, a highly sedentary lifestyle over the last 30 years has resulted in a global epidemic of obesity and chronic health issues. People urgently need solutions that emphasis a balanced diet and a healthy, active life.

Herbalife’s Global Nutrition Philosophy includes foods, supplements and regular physical activity to support a healthy, active life. From Formula 1 Nutritious Mixed Soy Powder Drink and Herbalife24™ to Herbalife SKIN™ lines, Herbalife products provide targeted nutrition to support a variety of personalized goals, such as achieving your ideal body composition, heart health, sports and fitness and healthy aging.

“The Herbalife Global Nutrition Philosophy provides the basis for balanced nutrition by emphasizing a balanced intake of protein from various sources, healthy carbohydrate and fiber from colorful fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats from fish, seafood, and nuts. When combined with a healthy diet and active life, Herbalife products contribute to making a healthy choice to change the nutrition habits of the world one person at a time.”

How To Look Your Best At Every Age

Do you know about ageless beauty?

Skin changes as the years go by – and your skin care routine should change with it! Here are some tips to help you look your best at every age. Let’s face the music: aging is inevitable, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. You can practice healthy skin care habits that will keep you looking your best no matter what your age. The skin is a remarkable organ that has the ability to regenerate itself. New cells are constantly forming, but cells regenerate at a slower pace as we get older. Because of this, you may notice that your skin becomes thinner as the years go by, and more age spots start appearing.

These are actually areas of hyper pigmentation caused by UV rays – another reason why it’s so critical to wear sunscreen at every age! Our skin also loses some of its natural elasticity as the years go by, leading to sagging and wrinkles.

Compounding the problem is the loss of lipids (fatty acids) over time, which are responsible for keeping skin moisturized. We have to face it: our skin care needs are going to change as we age. What worked for you in your 20s is not going to be as effective after a decade or two! On the other hand, we’re so inundated with “anti-aging” products that it’s easy to get ahead of ourselves when it comes to developing an effective skin care routine. Whether you’re 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, or beyond, it’s important to choose a regime and products that are appropriate for your age and skin type. Here’s some of my favorite beauty advice for beautiful skin at every age:

Skincare In Your 20s
If you haven’t already started a beauty regimen, now’s the time! Developing a good skin care routine early on will help you look your best for years. Even as you come out of your teenage years, your skin will continue to adjust throughout your 20s, so take some time to figure out what your skin type is and choose your beauty regimen accordingly.

Simple lifestyle changes can help too. Late nights out and too much time in the sun can affect the appearance of your skin. Start wearing sunscreen daily to help your skin remain elastic and supple, and while it’s tempting to stay out late socializing, try to limit your late nights so you can look your best during the day.

Skincare In Your 30s
This is when you may start noticing the signs of aging. Your skin starts to lose collagen and elastin and fine lines may start appearing. You may need to change your beauty regimen to include more moisturizing products.

It’s common to start seeing signs of aging around your eyes, too. This is when you should start focusing on the skin around your eyes. A quick tip to avoid encroaching laughter lines is to wear big sunglasses. 

Choosing shades with UVA and UVB protection will help to keep more of your face covered and protected from the sun. Shades also help to reduce the likelihood of squinting, which, over time, can lead to the development of wrinkles around your eyes. (By the way, isn’t ‘laughter lines’ a much nicer phrase than ‘crow’s feet’?)

Skincare In Your 40s
In your 40s, uneven skin tone is one of the most common complaints women have. This can be caused by too many hours in the sun with resulting age spots (so keep up your sunscreen routine!). Other hormonal changes during this decade and the possible onset of menopause could leave you wondering where your youthful skin went.

At this time, it’s best to visit your dermatologist for suggestions and possible treatments for your changing skin that will help you look and feel your best.

Many women in their forties feel confident that they have their skincare regime nailed down so it’s a pain to realize that you may have to adapt and evolve. Happily enough, small changes do add up so you may need only a few tweaks to regain control of your skin.

Skincare In Your 50s And Beyond
By the time you hit your 50s, skin is losing its elasticity and you may start to see sagging. A crucial element at this age is moisturizing. Though you can’t turn back the clock, you can keep your skin (and yourself) hydrated!

It’s also worth reviewing your cosmetics. If you've been wearing the same makeup look for a few decades, consider freshening up your style. Many women complain that their eyes appear smaller, so think carefully about your eye makeup. While mascara is a brilliant tool, you may want to switch from a hard black to a softer brown to emphasize your eyes in a more nuanced manner. Don’t forget my love of eyelash curlers too – they can turn a beauty bad day around!

We can’t stop aging, but we can age gracefully and beautifully. If the fountain of youth existed, it would probably have something to do with attitude. If you feel beautiful, confidence will show in your appearance – no matter what your age!
