Simple Guide to Sexy Legs

Filed under Body Care

Unfortunately, most women have to think twice before sporting a sexy mini, thanks to cellulite, varicose veins and excess fat. But you can proudly flaunt your limbs too; just follow this guide.

Beauty Tricks

Brush off cellulite: The hormone oestrogen is partly to blame for fatty deposits, as well as lack of exercise and poor circulation.

So give nature a helping hand with a body brush.

In the shower, massage your calves and thighs with a brush that has rounded teeth. Have a close shave: Waxing is all very well, but the easiest and cheapest way to keep legs fuzzfree is with a razor. Shave downwards in the direction that the hair grows, then upwards for a close finish. Prevent ingrowth by massaging with an exfoliating cloth every day.

Food for Firmer Pins

Beat salt: A high salt diet is known to cause fluid retention, so ditch sodium-rich foods such as crisps, ready meals and Chinese take-out. Eat away the bumps: Oily fish such as salmon, fresh tuna and mackerel are packed with omega-3 fats, which help the body shift flab while maintaining muscle tone. Get your greens: Spinach, broccoli and other leafy green vegetables help beat cellulite. Oats so simple: Tucking into oats in the form of porridge or cereal each morning can help beat the bloat. This is because they’re packed with soluble fibre, which boosts digestion and encourages the body to eliminate excess fluid.

Limb-Honinb Exercise Moves

Squat for slimmer thighs:

Try these ball squats everyday…

  1. Place a full water bottle on the floor with feet wide apart.
  2. Bend down and pick up bottle up.
  3. Bend again, place bottle on floor.
  4. Repeat in sets of six.

Skip for better Shape
Skipping with a rope for 10 minutes every other day is a great way to create some attractive curves, not to mention it’s a fun exercise.

Fashion Fixes

Get high and waisted: Skirts, shorts and cuffed pants that sit high on your waist will make your legs look longer and your bottom trimmer.

Be well-heeled: Strappy sandals visually cut the leg at the ankle and make it look shorter. Go for pumps and strappy sandals with no ankle straps.

Raise your hemline: If you don’t love your legs it can be tempting to hide them under calf-length skirts or shorts. But cuts that end on the widest part of your calf actually make your legs look thicker. So try and avoid that pitfall. Hemlines that end an inch or two above the knee create the illusion of slimmer legs without flashing too much thigh. Just the thing that you want.
Choose neutral shoes: To elongate the line of your legs, choose shoes in a neutral colour that’s similar to your natural skin tone. Actually, these days, you can even find sandals with sheer straps. Otherwise you can try pearl, beige, tan and brown. Even metallics make the legs look like they go on forever. Silver works for those with fair skin, while those with tanned or wheatish complexion can try bronze and silver

Put a Lid on Anger

August 20, 2009 by

Blowing your top. Hitting the roof. Getting fired up.

Considering the damage it can do to your body, it’s no surprise that anger is described in such violent terms.
The effects of anger can last up to a week: Outbursts send one’s heart rate and blood pressure skyrocketing
and increase the circulation of stress hormones.

Excessive anger raises the risk for heart disease and possibly the rate of hardening of the arteries. Anger
can even trigger potentially deadly heart rhythms in vulnerable people.

Balance – Are you hanging in there?

June 26, 2009 by

Do you struggle to balance multiple hobbies, social activities, work and family life? With so many opportunities and limited time, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Ultimately, in trying to keep options open, we can end up stretched thin and stressed out.

Letting Go of unimportant things

In studying how people make choices, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology found that we perceive relationships and objects as more valuable when we fear losing them. As a result, we spend time and energy staying connected to them to avoid feelings of loss. Often these people or things really are not a significant part of our lives.

Saying Goodbye to Possibilities

Choosing one job or one romantic partner over another might mean eliminating future possibilities. But, at the same time, it allows you to center on what is most important to you. While dealing with the initial loss is difficult, keeping too many doors open can be emotionally and physically draining – or can prevent you from making any choices at all.

 Staying Focused

By limiting your options and saying no to new commitments, you will likely feel less conflicted and can allow yourself to focus on what is most important. For a calmer, more satisfying lifestyle, re-evaluate how you spend your time. Prioritize social and volunteer commitments; give up those that are not fulfilling or are otherwise less important to you. Rethink timeconsuming hobbies that have lost their appeal. Trim holiday card lists – and even instant messaging lists – to only those with whom you want to remain in contact. Consider your current responsibilities before volunteering to take on new projects at work. Keep your children’s after-school activities in check – then enjoy some extra time relaxing together.

To reduce injury risk and increase comfort and safety, aim for ergonomically correct posture and movements. Slightly reclined position puts less pressure on the lower back than sitting upright.

Study authors recommend a 135-degree torso-thigh angle:

  • Sit with hips a few inches higher than knees; rest feet flat and recline slightly. Place a small pillow behind the lower back if necessary.
  • Stand with your chest high, shoulders back, abdominal muscles in and head held straight.
  • When standing, periodically shift weight by walking or resting one foot on a step or block.
  • Don’t slouch when seated. Scottish researchers found that sitting in a supported, Bend at the knees and avoid twisting motions to prevent back strain when lifting.
  • Office workers: Keep tops of computer monitors at eye level or slightly below and align hands, wrists and forearms when typing.
  • Health workers: Push – don’t pull – beds and equipment carts.
  • Construction professionals: Choose tools with coated handles to reduce the impact
