1) Protecting your body is one of the most important parts of a healthy lifestyle. When you go outside, whether it be in summer, winter or in between, you should always have on sunglasses. To achieve this, you'll have to develop a healthy routine that includes carrying sunglasses with you everywhere. Making your sunglasses a fashionable item you love only makes the task much easier. You can also wear a hat and scarf when outdoors to keep the sun off your head and chest. Additionally, sunscreen is more important than many people realize. Skin cancer rates are skyrocketing, and it could easily be avoided with a little cream.

2) What you put into your body is as important as what you put on it. Eating healthy is no easy feat, especially in this day and age of fast food and microwave meals. But a few fresh veggies can go a long way in making your skin clearer, give you more energy and make your hair shiner and stronger. In the long run, if you beauty and appearance are important to you, it's what people don't see that is important-aka- the foods you eat.

3) Avoiding plastics whenever possible is a great way to take your healthy lifestyle to a new level. Microwaving anything in plastic releases some of the substance into your food. You are essentially eating plastic. Since you know it isn't biodegradable you probably shouldn't eat it.

Only microwave on hard dishware.

4) Herbs have made a comeback. From a vital part of early life to something that most people know nothing about, herbs rarely get their due. A healthy lifestyle is incomplete without a firm grasp on the herbal world. You'll be amazed as you delve through plant books just how much is curable and preventable with plants.

5) Finally, a healthy lifestyle for you includes making your lifestyle healthy for those around you. If you smoke you know already that you should quit. If you drink excessively you know already that it is destroying your liver. Healthy lifestyle does all things in moderation and detrimental things never. Each cigarette you smoke takes off roughly 12 minutes of your life and the average non smoker lives 8 years longer than the average smoker.

There you have it, a healthy lifestyle includes protecting your skin and eyes with sunscreen and sunglasses. Great brands for full sin protection are Carerra and Prada, whose larger frames and darker lenses give optimal protection. Eat healthy, quit smoking. Avoid plastics and learn a bit about herbs and you are on the road to a healthier and happier you!
