EVERY YEAR, MILLIONS OF MEN make resolutions to look better. And every year, millions of men fail to stick with them, mostly because their goals are set unrealistically high. But it only takes a little time every day to improve yourself and your health. Follow these tips from MenScience for simple ways to get better skin, better health…better everything!
•Begin eating smarter. By consuming more fruits and vegetables every day, and cutting out the saturated fats and sugar of junk food, you can improve your diet significantly.
•Shave off pounds with regular exercise and by taking a daily supplement that contains Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA). Not only does it help lower body fat by increasing metabolism and the transformation of fat into energy, it also provides antioxidant protection against free radicals.*
•Protect your skin from the sun. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, more than 1 million cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. this year alone. Avoid this danger by regularly applying a waterproof sunblock that contains an SPF of 30 or higher and has broad-spectrum UV protection when out in sunlight for prolonged periods of time. Check out our article Sun Care for more tips.
•Begin exfoliating your skin on a regular basis (2-3 times a week). Exfoliating gently removes dead cells and grime on the skin’s surface, revealing newer, healthier-looking cells beneath. It’s an easy way to improve your appearance in a snap.
• Increase your physical activity to 3-4 sessions a week of 30 minutes of exercise to lose weight. Although the recommended daily calorie intake for an average-sized man is 2,000, most men go way beyond that. Keep your intake under control and increase your exercise for optimal results.
