Instant beauty 1: Two minute power-shower with jasmine or peppermint

If you don’t have any jasmine or peppermint scented shower gel in your bathroom, stock up now; both of these scents have been scientifically proven to wake you up when you’re feeling a little sleepy. While the scent of peppermint makes you feel fresh and zingy, jasmine increases the number of beta waves released by your brain to make you feel instantly alert. Be time-efficient by applying the shower gel to a muslin cloth or body puff to wash yourself and this will remove dead skin cells to make your skin look radiant. Don’t worry about washing your hair in the shower as this will add too much time to your shower, particularly if your hair is long.

Instant beauty 2:  One minute hair-do

After your two minute power-shower, spray the roots of your hair with some dry shampoo to soak up any oil and give your roots some volume. Dry shampoos tend to come in an array of different scents so they’ll leave your hair smelling gorgeous as well as feeling fresh. Don’t forget to brush your tresses to get rid of any excess dry shampoo. Now, take your hair and gather it up into a high bun on top of your head. This makes your locks look super chic in an instant and by having a high bun, you get instant volume too. If your hair is really short, just clip it back with some pretty clips or some hair grips. Whichever option you choose, this gives you instantly beautiful hair.

Instant beauty 3: Three minute dress-up session

Before you start getting dressed, prep your clean skin by applying your favourite face moisturiser. This gives it time to sink in as you get dressed. Once you’ve done that, it’s time to step out of those cat pyjamas and hop into something that flatters your figure. It’s a good idea to have an emergency one put together for times where you need to look instantly gorgeous.  Remember the few important tricks to wearing something that makes your body look beautiful. If you’re a curvy lady, for example, make sure you flatter your figure by adding a belt that cinches you in at the waist. There’s plenty of advice out there on the internet to help you pick an outfit that flatters your individual figure.

Instant beauty 4 Three minute makeup tricks

Once your moisturiser has worked its magic, you have the perfect base to start applying some makeup. When you’re in a rush, it’s not a good idea to start carrying out an elaborate makeup routine. Instead, just swipe some concealer underneath your eyes and over any imperfections. Elongate your lashes with some mascara and finish off by brightening up your complexion with some blusher. Creamy blushers tend to look more natural and add a glowing sheen to your skin for an instant hint of glamour. Finish the look with some tinted lip balm.

Instant beauty 5: Thirty seconds to gather your thoughts and smile

Now that you’re looking hot to trot, you probably feel pretty flustered after all of that rushing around. To eliminate looking rushed and clumsy when you arrive to meet your company, take thirty seconds to simply gather your thoughts and breathe. You may be looking drop dead gorgeous, but not getting out of that panicky state of mind could lead to some seriously embarrassing blunders (running up the steps and tripping over, forgetting to check thoroughly in the mirror and strutting around with your skirt tucked into your knickers – ouch!) Once you’ve gathered your thoughts, add a gleaming smile and a good posture and you have just perfected instant beauty. Read more on realbuzz.com...

    Research zeroes in on effects of common food additive

    Everyone's heard a lot about questionable food additives lately, but a recent study provides new insight on why emulsifiers are something to avoid. Commonly found in packaged and processed foods, emulsifiers add texture and extend shelf life but according to the US-based research team, they could alter your composition of friendly gut bacteria -- or gut microbiota -- and lead to inflammation. "Food interacts intimately with the microbiota so we considered what modern additions to the food …
