10 morning rituals for men to look better


A healthy start every day may help you become a better man, according to a men''s online magazine.

AskMen has suggested 10 ways to tweak your morning routine in order to look better today -- and improve your appearance in the long run, according to News.com.au

Beginning the day with a sweat session will improve both your body and your mind -- now and in the future, it said.

In addition to exercise building a fitter, hotter body, the endorphin rush it results in will put you in a cheery mood for hours, and your skin will become clearer over time. You''ll also deal better with stresses that arise over the course of the day, it stated.

Although any type of morning physical activity will benefit you, AskMen suggests cardio workouts, because you''ll burn more fat in the a.m., and save weight training for later in the day.

Next it suggests eating a power breakfast. AskMen recommends a combination of lean protein and slow-burn carbs. So, try things like steel-cut oats with fruit and yogurt or an omelet with vegetables.

For those who're always in hurry, it suggests blending up fruit with milk or juice, with a scoop of protein powder for an on-the-go smoothie added in it.

Don't forget to moisturise your skin after shaving or showering with a cream that contains SPF 30.

The moisturiser will plump up your skin, making it appear more youthful and refreshed, and prevent it from drying out. SPF is crucial for preventing future signs of UV ray damage, notably fine lines, sunspots and wrinkles, it noted.

Eyes are the first places that will show signs of ageing, starting with fine lines.

According to AskMen, dabbing on eye cream in the morning will soothe and moisturise the delicate, dry skin in this area and will minimise the appearance of wrinkle.
