It’s March, which means spring break is on everyone’s minds. We know that spring break is always one of the best times of the year but by the end of the week, you’re exhausted. We get it – partying for one week is fun while it’s happening, but not so fun once it is over. We want to share some tips to help you bounce back after spring break.
- Heal your burn – We know we have tried to help you prepare for spring break, but we understand if you forgot your SPF once or twice. If you come home with a sunburn be sure to drink a lot of water and hydrate your skin often. Also, use aloe to soothe any burns.
- Refresh your complexion – Did you come back from vacation with blemishes from all of the junk food and alcohol you enjoyed? Stop by your local salon for some red light therapy! Red light therapy will help create soft, supple skin, increase moisture and give you a more glowing complexion. Learn more about the benefits of red light therapy here.
- Give your body nutrients – Now that you’re home and getting back into your normal routine, it’s time to give your body some fruits and vegetables. Try one of these high-protein smoothie recipes from Greatist! Why a high-protein smoothie? Protein helps with healthy skin, hair, bones, and heart. And, a protein-packed smoothie for breakfast can prevent overeating.
- Embrace a normal sleeping routine – We know that spring break does not lend itself to a normal sleeping routine with 8 hours of sleep. Now that you’re back, it’s time to get back in the habit of a good night’s sleep. Having a hard time falling asleep? Try a meditation app or a soothing Spotify playlist to help you relax before bed.
- Write down your schedule – It’s hard to come back to your normal schedule after a vacation. To help with this, we recommend writing down your daily or weekly schedule. Jot down the hours you have class, the time of your workout class, when you plan to make meals and when you plan to go to bed. Writing down your schedule will help you stick to it because you will have something to refer to and hold you accountable.
