Have you heard about the Glow Up? If you\u2019ve been on the YouTube sphere and watched influencers doing their thing, you would have come across this phrase. For the benefit of those who don\u2019t, Urban Dictionary defines a \u201cglow up\u201d as an \u201cincredible transformation,\u201d or \u201cto go from the bottom to the top to the point of disbelief.\u201d Essentially, 'glow up' is another phrase for going through puberty, but the glow up process focuses on the improvement of physical appearance, individual style and confidence. If you are reading this and shaking your head, thinking that glow ups are only for youngsters and not mothers with children, hold up! *deep breath* Honey, anyone can go through a glow up, no matter the age. The question is, do you want a glow up? If you do, carry on reading because we\u2019ve got your ultimate glow up recipe! Glowing Up Naturally Image credit: Shutterstock A glow up is not something that happens overnight. It does not need to involve plastic surgery, some forbidden beauty pill or any expensive procedures, though some women use it as leverage. We are not going there. A glow up is a process, and you need to be committed to it. It takes some getting used to and investment in terms of time to take care of yourself, but it will change your perspective on life and how others view you. After all, when mummy is happy, the whole fam bam is happy. Without further ado, let\u2019s get glowing! Drink More Water Image credit: Shutterstock Women are often insecure about their body weight. If you want to shake off excess weight, start by drinking water. Drinking water may activate your metabolism, and a good metabolism is associated with a positive impact on energy levels. When you feel good about yourself, you feel more confident. That, ladies, is a glow that starts from within. Plus, water keeps your body hydrated and refreshed, helping maintain your skin's elasticity. You know how some people, though they are slender, their face can look a little haggard? Dehydration does that to your skin. Just think about it\u2014the human body is made up of 60% water! People who drink large amounts of water are less likely to suffer from scars, wrinkles, and soft lines, too. If you are spending a lot of facials and steamers without much effect, try water. Those who do will not show as many signs of ageing as those who drink little water. Get Sweating! Image credit: Shutterstock We know, we know, exercise is not everyone\u2019s favourite pastime, but introducing it to your tight schedule may actually gain you more time and aid in your mommy-glow-up. Exercise can give your skin a slight glow and help your skin look healthier because of the increased blood flow that occurs when you work out. In the 19th century, women would pinch their cheeks to get that pinkish glow. Now, rouge aside, you can get that glow by going up a few flights of stairs. Exercise is not only great for your physical outlook and the insides, but it also keeps you healthy mentally. When your mood is good and you are energised, you get work done much faster and more efficiently. On top of that, you get to stay in shape. If you don\u2019t like high-intensity workouts, do something you enjoy. Try a badminton game, go swimming (you can lose weight just sitting in the pool!) or do yoga. Eat Right Image credit: xFrame What goes into your body will show. But sometimes, it is a battle between what is good to eat and what is good for the body. Fried chicken and char koay teow are always a \u2018Yes, please!\u2019 in my book, but that does not mean I should overindulge in it. Before you go YOLO (Do people still do that?) and think life is too short, eat all the fried food and sweets\u2014we gotta tell you to stop right now, thank you very much. Your skin is an important element when it comes to your glow up. When you feel better about investing in yourself, your quality of life also increases. Therefore, treat your skin kindly and optimise your nutrition by eating antioxidant-rich fruit and vegetables, healthy fats from oily fish and nuts, and a varied plus balanced diet. That should provide optimal nutrients crucial for radiant skin, including beta carotene, vitamins C and E, zinc and selenium. If you are concerned about missing these nutrients in your daily diet, consider essential supplements for that boost! Follow A Skincare Routine Image credit: Shutterstock Last, but certainly not least, is having a skincare routine. There are two types of skincare routines, morning and night.
