There are many ways you invest in your future every day. But it’s not all about going to work/college and working towards your goals. To be successful in your career, relationships and well, just life generally, you need to be on your “A” game in terms of your health and beauty. Develop really good health and beauty habits before you turn 20 and they’ll carry you through your entire life.
I’m not saying you should never treat yourself, but focus on having your core weekly meals being of a nice healthy nature. Lots of fruits, vegetables, fish, chicken etc.
Our faces go through a lot during the day, so it’s a good idea to get in the habit of not only washing it when you wake up but also in the evening before you go to bed.
You should really be developing a regular all-body skincare routine including exfoliating and moisturizing. The sooner you start to take care of your skin, the better looking it will be in the future.
We use our hands for pretty much every task, so treat them well by applying hand cream every single day!
It is vital that you respect your body and apply sunscreen, even if the temperature isn’t that high or there's cloud cover.
Find and perfect a makeup routine that really works for you. Once you enter in to your twenties you should be aiming for a more mature yet still stylish look. But keep on experimenting and having fun with new trends and products.
Your skin needs to breathe and rejuvenate overnight. Remove your makeup every night and your skin will thank you for it.
When you were younger it seemed like face masks were for old people, but the sooner you get into the habit of applying them a couple of times a week, the more your skin will thank you in the long run!
Make sure that you drink the recommended eight glasses of water per day, staying suitable hydrated is vitally important to maintaining overall good health.
It’s good to try out every form of exercise at one point or another, but it is equally great when you find the one form that you really love and can commit to for a long time.
You're young. you're invincible. That's no excuse for not getting the recommended amount of sleep (7-9 hours) every as many nights as possible.
And it's not just about getting enough sleep. It is very beneficial to get into the habit of going to bed and getting up at the same time every day. A small break is fine at the weekends, but don’t spend all day in bed!
Giving yourself just 10 or 15 minutes of each day to unwind and focus on yourself rather than reacting to external stimuli can help to settle your entire mind at the end of a busy day.
Reading can be so good for the mind and the imagination. Commit to reading every single day, even if it is just a single chapter of a novel.
It can be very tempting to stay inside with the comfort of furniture and technology, but it’s so important to get outdoors in the sunshine whenever you can. Go for a walk at least 5 times a week.
As you come out of your teens, the biggest step you can take towards true adulthood is keeping your bedroom/home nice and tidy every single day!
Even if you are not planning on an extensive workout that day, you should still put your body through a series of stretches to wake up every inch of it.
Don’t turn in to a tech zombi. Be strict with yourself and limit your screen time per day. It can help you connect with the real world more.
Try not to have too many days where you have absolutely no plans. You should try to be as scheduled as possible.
Invest in couple of silk pillowcases, they are so much kinder to your hair! If you can't afford it, put them on your gift list.
