Ensure adequate sleep each night
Having a regular sleep schedule is an important part of improving sleep quality. Going to bed at a fixed time every night and getting up at the same time every morning improves the circadian rhythm. If you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, you can try these things:
Keep a diary of activities that lead to better or worse sleep. You may notice that certain foods, drinks, or stressors affect your sleep cycle.
Avoid electronic devices before bedtime as they emit blue light which can interfere with the production of melatonin (the hormone that helps regulate our circadian rhythm). Try reading a book instead!
Build healthy habits like taking short walks after dinner (but don’t overdo it as you don’t want that walk to wake you from your sleep).
Skincare Basics for That Glow
As a student, you will be busy studying and working hard to graduate. But while you are doing this, remember to take care of your skin. Here are some tips for keeping your skin healthy while you study:
Wash your face at least twice a day with a quality facial cleanser.
Use sunscreen every morning and apply moisturizer before going to bed.
Try an at-home facial once a week to clear your pores. Try using a face scrub and mask.
Use a face towel to pat your skin dry after washing it with warm (not cold) water to avoid chapped lips or dry patches.
Always use makeup products that match or complement your skin tone.
Use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 when outdoors for long periods of time. This will protect your skin from harmful UV rays and prevent tanning.
Hair is an important part of your appearance
The hair on your head is an essential part of who you are. It’s an essential part of who you are as a person, and it can also be a major factor in how confident you are about yourself. There are many reasons why you should keep your hair nice and clean.
Wash your hair regularly with shampoo and conditioner (or use dry shampoo if needed, but sparingly as it leaves residue on the scalp). This will keep the mane shiny, soft and fragrant. Use a small amount of hair product (wax or styling cream) to keep your hairstyle intact for at least a few hours. You might as well score a date or two if you’re consistent with your beard trim or full shave, whichever you prefer.
Keep your nails clean and neatly trimmed
Keeping your nails clean and neatly trimmed is an easy way to maintain good hygiene and feel great. Dirty or overgrown fingernails create a very bad impression. Trim nails regularly, so they don’t get too long. Use a nail file to smooth the edges of your nails after trimming them with clippers, or use a nail file for quick touch-ups. A nail buffer can also be used in this department if you want to give your nails an extra shine. Clipping your nails can also be therapeutic – a good way to deal with anxiety if there is something stressful going on in life.

There are many resources available to learn how to take care of your hair and skin, including YouTube videos and free online articles.
