As fall approaches and the days begin to lengthen, you may be feeling restless in a number of ways, including feeling tired of the way you look. If you want to take control of your health and your appearance, you may be considering losing weight, investing in different pieces for your wardrobe or changing up your style and developing some new skincare routines. You can change your look up any time you’d like with a few simple and implementable tips that don’t even cost that much. If you want to change your look this year, here are three tips to help you out.
1. Start burning belly fat where you can.
Weight loss is often the first thing people mention when discussing what they’d like to change about the way they look. For many, stubborn belly fat is what is holding them back from the body of their dreams. Belly fat is often the hardest fat to lose, and it can be very frustrating. To burn this belly fat, start with your digestion and begin drinking liquids that will not only boost your metabolism and help you lose belly fat but will also contribute to overall good gut health. You may be asking, “What should I drink in the morning to lose belly fat?” You should of course be drinking plenty of water if you want to trim your waist, but if you want to spice up your simple glass of water, consider adding lemon juice to help you convert that boring water into lemon water. Lemon water, apple cider vinegar, green tea and even caffeine in your morning coffee can help you rid your stomach fat. Plus, many of these drinks stave off your appetite, meaning that you won’t unnecessarily snack for a little while after you drink them. Make one of these drinks a part of your morning routine to get your digestive system changing its ways and encourage your metabolism to speed up a bit.
2. Get some new essentials for your wardrobe.
Another thing that’s easy to change is the way you dress. Your wardrobe and overall style are very important to how others perceive you, and can affect the way you feel about yourself. The right piece of clothing can even change the way you act around other people. Our clothing items affect our mood. It’s easy: powerful, stylish clothes make us more likely to feel like confident, strong people. Wearing your pajamas all day while you work from home may be nice a few days out of the week, but you’ll likely find that you are more productive and produce better work when wearing a nice skirt and blouse combination. If you’re strapped for cash or you want your clothes to work harder for you, reversible clothes may be up your alley. A cute reversible dress can take you from event to event without feeling like you’re repeating an outfit. A reversible option in a trip dress can also save you room in your suitcase by being two looks in one. Plus, the best part of revamping your style? With free returns you’re literally not running any risk. It’s just pure fun.
3. Reinvest in your skincare routine.
The last tip for investing in your look is to simply pay attention to your skin and invest in your skincare. Many people have facial skin that is dry and crying out for moisture, but don’t realize this until it’s too late. Dry skin can actually contribute to the look of wrinkles, so start now if you want to look youthful and glowy longer. If you have oily skin, your needs may be different. For instance, you may want a vitamin C serum or an AHA/BHA peel to help you clear your pores and fight against scarring and dark spots. No matter what your skin type is, though, ensure you are wearing a high-quality SPF each day to protect against harmful UV rays. Drinking lots of water and a detox beverage or two will also help to cleanse your skin from the inside out.
