{September 2, 2013}   What Does Your Colour(s) Say About You…Green &/or Blue



When we think of the colour blue,water usually comes to mind,along with thoughts of tranquility and peace. Water and beauty make perfect companions,as many spa resorts around the world testify. Our bodies are composed of 70 percent water and need constant replenishment to maintain health. Another health-inspiring colour, green signifies renewal, life and the freshness of the great outdoors. It calls to mind veggies and lush green grass, leading us to connect the colour with nutrition.


Fun Facts:

Experts agree that you should have 8 glasses of water everyday

Water is the ultimate facial. Skin needs water for elasticity, and lack of water leaves skin looking dry and feeling delicate.

Sunken eyes and under-eye circles are the tell-tale signs that you need water. Dark circles are due to thin skin being bruised as fluid drains away.

Water helps to prevent the sagging skin that usually follows fat loss. It plumps up the shrinking cells and leaves the skin clear,healthy, and resilient.

Water aids concentration. Your body needs water to help flush out poisons from pollutants, junk food, and additives. If you are dehydrated, toxins hang around in the liver,making you tired and unable to concentrate. Water washes the poisons out and gets the system moving.

Water both prevents and remedies fluid retention. When you’re feeling puffy, as women often do before a period, drinking water isnt your immediate thought, but its your best treatment

Water is a great cure-all. Three quarters of your brain is water,so if you’re dehydrated, the brain is one of the first organs to be affected. Drinking eight glasses of water a day will usually prevent dehydration. If your a migraine-sufferer, there is also evidence that drinking a glass of water every 30 minutes will reduce attacks.

Green veggies contain varying amounts of potent phytochemicals such as lutein and indoles,which are thought to have great antioxidant, health-promoting benefits.

Increasing fruit and veggie consumption may reduce the risk of developing chronic bronchitis


IF YOU LIKE GREEN:Green-lovers are seekers of balance and harmony. Kind and generous, their perception and awareness in relationships are good, so its not surprising that they are great joiners of clubs and organizations. People who like green are said to be meticulous about detail, and certainly you will have an enviable ability to recognize the essentials of any situation. The downside is that green-lovers dislike sudden surprises,so they may be less inclined to risk something new and may tend toward conventionality and routine. They also often have big appetites for food-and for gossip. If you love the colour green,experiment with shadows and liners, combining subtle, soft shades of mint and earthy tones around your eyes.

IF YOU DISLIKE GREEN: Since lovers of green are usually very sociable people, those who dislike green tend to be resistant to the established way of seeing or doing things. They may have an unfulfilled need to be recognized that causes them to pull away from,rather than join, people. 


IF YOU LIKE BLUE: The colour of calm and peace wins out as the favorite colour choice universally. Although apparently cool and confident, blue-lovers can sometimes be vulnerable and sensitive. They have a great need for trust and the tendency to form strong attachments. Betrayal is the worst hurt. In consequence, people who like blue tend to stick to their own close circle of friends and are less likely to speak or act independently. The blue personality sometimes has perfectionist tendencies that can make these individuals unrealistic and demanding in their relationships with others. If you are in the majority and love the colour blue, there are many ways to incorporate it into your beauty regime. Try a sultry midnight blue eyeliner or a dusty blue shadow on the lids.

IF YOU DISLIKE BLUE: A dislike of blue may mean restlessness and a desire for stimulation and excitement. These types often have a longing for the good things in life and wish they didnt have to work so hard to get them. To these people, blue represents sadness, and the colour may induce melancholy.
