Your favourite friends, killer shoes and sexiest jeans – the best ingredients for a girl’s night out. But did you know that a night with your mates can actually be good for your health? It’s true.
Spending time with your girls can help you reduce stress and bounce back from illness quickly; it reduces chances of coronary-related diseases – and it can extend your life.
Time on the dance floor equals kilojoules burnt (1600 in an hour, to be exact), and laughter is a great workout (giggling for 10 minutes will give you the equivalent workout of half an hour on a stationary bicycle).
So this summer, get yourself in the company of some X-chromosomes, put on those dancing shoes – and get out there looking and feeling fabulous.
Your BFF calls as you’re leaving work. “Sundowners at six,” she says. Luckily, you’re well prepared and have an emergency make-up kit that includes:
Concealer: The magic wand. Apply under the eye area, on the brow bone and around the nose, and blend in well.
Blusher: In the wise words of make-up guru Bobbi Brown: “For the most natural look, match the blush colour to that of the cheeks when flushed from exercise.”
Eyeliner: Chocolate brown or charcoal will add drama to your sundowner look.
Mascara: Choose brown or black, depending on your skin tone.
Lip Gloss or Stain: Just dab on with your finger for a bitten-lip look.
Mirror: A compact is a must. Position yourself in a spot with as much natural light as possible – those bathroom fluorescents are hazardous to your self-image.
