While picking out makeup shades that go well with your prom dress is important, keep in mind that your look begins with clear, beautiful skin. Here, we give you five easy habits that will make you (and your skin) stand out at prom!
1. Hit the sack early.
Your body increases blood flow while you're in dreamland, which is why you wake up with a healthy flush the next day. Getting eight hours of sleep will certainly give you glowing skin.
Do you have a hard time falling asleep? Avoid browsing your social media accounts an hour before sleeping! Your gadgets emit blue light, which suppresses the secretion of melatonin, a hormone for regulating sleep. Relax your brain and body. Listen to soothing music, or do deep breathing exercises to wind down. Practice sleeping early, and you'll be a radiant beauty come prom night.
2. Eat healthily.
As much as possible, cut down on sweets and refrain from eating processed foods such as fries and hotdogs. These food items could boost your blood sugar level and may trigger a pimple breakout. You don't want to attend prom with huge red bumps, do you? Make sure you munch on fruits and vegetables daily, so you'll show up at prom with a flawless face!
3. Make water your favorite drink.
Drinking a glass of agua is definitely healthier than sipping iced latte. Water helps in keeping your skin healthy and vibrant. Moreover, water flushes out the toxins inside your body. Drink at least eight glasses of water every day to achieve the clear, beautiful complexion you've always wanted!
4. Move it!
Exercise improves blood circulation, resulting in a rosy glow. Get active for at least 10-20 minutes every day. It doesn't have to be a hardcore workout—it can be as simple as walking around your village, skipping rope, or even just dancing along to your favorite music.
5. Apply the right products on your face.
If you are always exposed to dirt and pollution, chances are, you're prone to pimples. With a special event like prom coming up, flawless skin is understandably one of your priorities. Alexa Ilacad knows the struggles all too well, and she shares some tips for all Candy Girls.
