7 Ways to Healthy Looking Face

1) GIVE YOUR BROWS A LIFT     The perfect brow shape can make you look more awake and years younger. Keep the arch right above your pupil for the most natural look. A very classic trend that never goes wrong is to have thicker and straighter brows like Audrey Hepburn. Never over-tweezed! Skinny and archy eyebrows will add years to your face. I'd say go with your own natural brow-shape and pick out high-arch, round-arch or no-arch; whichever suits your face the best.

2) LASH-LASH     Want a more wide-eyed look? Try a lengthening mascara on the top lashes only, to make your eyes look more open and awake. Don't forget to curl them!

3) RUB OUT WRINKLES     Apply morning and night eye cream. This routine will diminish dark circles and reduce puffiness, at the same time hydrate the eye area and reduce dryness.
When applying, use the pad of your middle finger to apply the eye cream, and tap it gently onto your skin - don't vigorously rub it in. Watch out not to tug and pull at the delicate skin around the eye area.

4) BEAUTY SLEEP      We all know that doctor's recommendation is to have at least 8-hours of sleep. As an adult, we may not need a full 8-hours, but our skin does. If you routinely skimp on your z's, your eyes will show the evidence. Get more beauty sleep if you see any signs of dark under-eye circles!

5) EAT YOUR VEGGIES      A lot people ask me how I have nice and healthy skin. All I could say is I eat a regular diet and occasionally have a pack of instant noodles. But what I always make sure is adding lots of veggies into my meal. Fruits and vegetables are loaded with antioxidants that fight free-radicals damage and help eyes look younger and brighter.

My top 5 picks fruits recommended by the nutritionists:
 - Blackberry (contains the highest antioxidant content - 51.53)
- Strawberry (ranks the 6th on list antioxidant list - 22.74)
- Orange (the 7th - 20.50)
- Grape
- Banana (the 3rd to the lowest source of antioxidant - only 2.28)

My top 5 picks of veggies recommended by the nutritionists:
- Broccoli
- Cabbage (Green)
- Carrot
- Green Bean
- Lettuce (Green)

6) BACK IS BEST     Snoozing on your stomach or side can cause sleep lines around your eye as your face rubs up against you pillow night after night. Flip onto your back, or vary your position for comfort.

7) FRAME YOUR FACE     Finally, the right haircut should make your eyes pop even more. You can take years off by framing your face with layers or soft, subtle highlights.
