Look Good and Feel Great


There are some quick and easy ways to live a happier and healthier life * OW often have you said "I don't have time to keep fit, eat more healthily, go to the hairdressers, or even wax my legs"? But improving your health, looks and fitness doesn't need to eat up hours of your precious life.

There are a few key elements to looking good and feeling good, including exercise.

Keep-fit sessions should include both cardiovascular exercise - the type that makes you feel out of breath and a bit sweaty - and strength and toning workouts - to achieve overall weight loss and toning results.

It's vital that exercise is speedy, easy to do and fun. Making the most of what you have, with express beauty treatments and clever ways with make-up, will also give your looks and confidence a boost.

Here, we bring you some quick and easy ways to improve your fitness and look your very best: STAND TALLER: Small corrections to your posture can make a huge difference to how you look - and feel.

MADE OVER: Merle Brown, beauty writer and Blogger for 5pm.co.uk Health and Beauty, revealed a five-minute make-up makeover. She said: "There are four essentials for speedy make-up - mascara, blusher, lipstick and some sort of base.

"Start with a tinted moisturiser for a hint of colour and then a swirl of bronzer. Then a dab of cream blusher or a swirl of powder blusher blended on to the apples of your cheeks gives a healthy glow.

"Next is mascara, to open up your eyes. Finish with your favourite lipstick. And you're off, looking fab and confident."

WATER WAYS: The top tip from health expert Molly Cameron, of Nexus Coaching (www.nexus-coaching.com), is proper hydration.

Drinking at least 1.5 litres of water a day stops hunger pangs, helps cells to function effectively, flushes out toxins and keeps the metabolism in check. Add a slice of lemon or lime if you fancy some extra zing.

ABS BLAST: Burning calories is one part of the fitness goal while toning sessions such as abs blasts will see off more fat.

A short session that can be done at home is the ThinqFitness Lucy Case's 10 minutes Abs Workout Video (www. …
