Easy General Tips on Party Day!
1. Don’t skip meals. I know this sounds like backwards logic, but if you start thinking ‘oh, I know I’m having a big meal out later/it’s the work Christmas dinner tonight/I want to eat a triple chocolate fudge sundae for lunch, so I’ll just skip breakfast,’ your metabolism will slow down, and when you do eat your naughty treats they’ll just stick to your hips because your body will think you’re starving. So EAT. If you know you’re going to eat a big meal at dinner, eat fruit or natural yoghurt for breakfast, and soup for lunch. Just keep your metabolism going.
6. Have a really long bath and put a face mask on. Keep drinking throughout the bath or you’ll get dehydrated (again). Slick on some eye cream and stick in some eye drops – drinking plays havoc with your skin.
7. Dinner – something comforting. Get a ready meal, like a lasagne or a stir fry, stick it in the microwave, and enjoy. Take some vitamins if you’ve got any, in case you’ve got a bit run down. Vitamin C and zinc is good for your immune system, and a multi vitamin won’t hurt.
