Breathe properly for a glowing skin.

There is a saying that "if you breath properly you will look and feel healthier".while breathing we take in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide.if you don't breathe properly, your body is not getting enough oxygen. As a result,your skin looks dull and loses its vitality,your performance level goes down and you will feel lethargic.
Breathing properly makes your skin glow and support your overall health too.
so apart from eating right and breathing properly is a must to get a glowing skin.

Do not eat when you don't want to !


Do not eat when you don't want to.Eat when you really want to.Eating food to please others is not justified.We all often do it to make someone feel happy by over estimating that the person will feel bad if you say no to the food that he or she offers.We all must remember that foods are just another detail of celebrations.The main purpose of celebration is to spread joy and happiness and get together with your dear and near ones.By eating small portion at parties can also make your day special and you can enjoy the party without any regrets.
