Reboot Your Body And Feel Brand New With These Life Hacks

Updated on

Believe it or not, you don’t have to empty your wallet to improve the state of your body and health. There are some easy and inexpensive hacks you can use unless you know where to find the Fountain of Youth. From pampering your skin, hair, and nails, or practicing healthy weight management, there is a hack for that.

Head Turning Tresses

There are hundreds of products advertising to make your hair look its best, but are they worth it? You might have passed up miracle-quality hair care products, at a fraction of a cost and already in your home. When it comes to your mane, your hair desires adequate moisturization, healthy fats, and nourishing nutrients. Consider raiding your kitchen pantry or peruse grocery aisles for ingredients to make your own hair serum. It can be stressful battling hair breakage, dandruff, dryness, and inflammation can make it challenging to maintain a head of lustrous, touchable hair.

Encourage hair growth and create a serum using castor oil, avocado oil, and coconut oil. You will want to use a 1:1:1 ratio of the three ingredients, which you will need to shake before applying to your scalp and hair. Castor oil excellently moisturizes your scalp and hair with fatty acids omega-6 and omega-9 and includes vitamin E. Avocado oil prevents hair breakage and contains plenty of fatty oleic acid which penetrates the hair shaft. Superfoods like coconut oil help protect hair from sun damage and reduce protein loss. After giving your hair some TLC on the outside, eat more salmon to improve hair growth, shine, and overall health.

Blast Away Weight

As we age, it can be tougher to keep off any unwanted extra pounds. No need to fear the scale, try a life hack instead. Make sure never to skip breakfast in the morning, which can cause you to feel hungrier and overeat later in the day. Try to eat breakfast within 30 minutes of waking up, since your metabolism isn’t fully fired up and you’ll feel fuller longer. Especially if you are dieting, you’ll want to stick to a schedule of eating breakfast in the morning to have a more successful outcome.

Pass up on specialty drinks to shed pounds; there’s nothing like old-fashioned water and lemons. If you want to drop pounds, choose to drink a glass of lemon water with a hint of salt. Lemons and salt are both purifiers that release toxins from the body, which can cause your body to hold onto excess weight. Saltwater and lemons encourage bowel movements, increase metabolism, and reduce your appetite. When cravings emerge, down a glass of lemon water instead.

Picture Perfect Skin And Nails

Forget pricey visits to the salon or considering plastic surgery, there are natural life hacks to beautify your body. Yellowing of teeth and nails may happen naturally as a result of aging, but you don’t have to go broke for your body.  Return your skin to a more youthful look and feel by drinking hydrolyzed collagen. Research has shown that consuming hydrolyzed collagen is more effective than applying it topically. Hydrolyzed collagen doesn’t only slow down the visible aging process, but it protects against bone loss, relieves joint pain, and improves bone health.

Before you reach for whitening pastes or creams for your nails and teeth, rethink some everyday items. Apply some toothpaste to your nails using a toothbrush, and scrub your nails as you would your teeth. Allow the paste to sit on your nails for a few minutes before rinsing your hands clean. Using this method removes any yellow tinges. Whitening toothpaste isn’t the only way to get a brighter smile. Try eating strawberries, oranges, or apples to remove stains and improve the look of your pearly whites.
