Fatigue can become very painful on a daily basis:it slows down the pace of life, affects concentration, dulls the complexion and hardens the features. To combat fatigue, it is necessary to identify its causes and find appropriate solutions. Better hygiene of life, care and beauty tips, discover Veld's good anti-fatigue practices!

Identify the causes of fatigue

Fatigue significantly affects our daily quality of life. It can have a wide variety of causes:an overly busy lifestyle, a disturbed biological rhythm, a diet that is too rich or deficient, or even sleep disorders. Fatigue, if it is brutal and sudden, requires a small visit to the doctor to make sure of your state of health.

In addition, fatigue largely affects the radiance of your skin. When you sleep, blood flow and collagen production are increased. It is these two elements that will mainly contribute to giving a healthy glow on waking, and to tightening the features of the face. In case of lack of sleep, the skin will therefore appear drier, duller, dark circles and wrinkles will be more marked.

Also, the skin, during the day, is subject to many attacks:cold, heat, pollution, makeup that is sometimes too covering, etc. During the night, the skin regenerates and gives itself a “break” to be able to last all day that will follow. Lack of sleep can then contribute to premature skin aging , but also, to the appearance of imperfections .

However, fatigue is not inevitable . There are plenty of tips and good practices to improve your quality of life. A healthy lifestyle, combined with skin care and appropriate make-up, will definitely give you a boost!

A healthy lifestyle:the best anti-fatigue tip!

There is no secret, our state of health as well as our physical form are consequences of our lifestyle. In this sense, a few small gestures made on a daily basis can help you regain energy in no time!

A regular sleep cycle to fight fatigue

To avoid the feeling of fatigue, sleep is of course the key. To be in top shape, it is recommended to sleep 8 hours a night . The minimum needed to ensure your day is in a “correct” state is 6 hours, although this should not be a habit. Obviously, these needs vary from person to person depending on lifestyle, and evolve throughout life.

On a daily basis, try to keep a regular sleep cycle :go to bed and get up at a fixed time. The more regular your sleep cycle, the better your body will be able to keep up. Finally, do not neglect an unstoppable tool against fatigue:the nap. 10 to 20 minutes between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. is ideal to regain energy to finish the day in a productive way!

A diet full of energy:anti-fatigue foods

We sometimes tend to forget it, but food plays as much on our biological rhythm as sleep. A diet that is too rich, fatty and sweet will require a lot of energy from the body to be digested and assimilated. In times of fatigue, avoid dairy products, red meats, foods containing gluten , and you can already see an improvement.

Vegetables, fruits, fish, and oilseeds should be an integral part of your diet for easy digestion. Above all, these foods will provide you with the vitamins and minerals essential for the proper functioning of the body, in order to prevent nutritional deficiencies.

What if sport was the right anti-fatigue tip?

During physical activity, the body releases endorphins and serotonin, which will relieve stress and improve mood. However, stress and annoyance are often the cause of sleep disorders, or a state of general fatigue.

Indirectly, sport therefore helps to fight against fatigue. In addition, beyond stress and emotional state, sport helps regulate the internal clock, and promotes restful sleep . When physical activity refines our silhouette, calms our stress, gives us a smile and energy on a daily basis, why deprive ourselves?
