Life has a habit of throwing things at us to see if they’ll stick.
Some call it character building. Others call it bad luck. But if you can get through the tough days, I think it does make you a better person and can even give you a sense of personal pride.
Think back on your last bad hair day. We all have them. We can fight and battle with the strands that just won’t behave, or we can tie it all back and accept that down style needs to be saved for another day. Depending how much time you have, there are several other things you can try. Washing it again and restyling with the blow dryer often cures wayward hair. If you don’t have quite that much time, try using the straightening irons to tame it into a sleeker style.
Pimples and spots can continue to cause embarrassment right through to our forties. Hormones are mostly to blame. Knowing you’re going to get one or two before your period means you can prepare to do battle. Eat well in the days just before. You might be craving those sweet, fatty things, but try to avoid them. Be really strict and careful with your cleansing routine. Have some hand sanitizer in your bag. The alcohol in it can prevent a pimple erupting while you’re out and about.
Breaking a tooth can be painful. It’s essential you see a dentist immediately if you feel like you’ve chipped something. Any toothache should be examined quickly. If a regular filling just isn’t enough, invest in dental crowns to restore your smile. Your teeth are so important to your health. You need to be able to eat well so a crown will ensure a good chewing surface. It doesn’t take long to have your crown made up, and nobody needs ever know.
Stains on your top or skirt can ruin your appearance. You have several choices, but dabbing it and rubbing the stain out isn’t one of them. You need to change your clothing. If you have spares in your bag or desk, then that’s great. If you have layered your outfit, you may be saved that way. But if you have no alternative but to buy something new, it’s worth doing it. A damp patch where you’ve made an attempt at stain removal will look just as bad as the stain.
When your smartphone runs out of battery, you can suddenly feel really cut off from the world. Work can’t get hold of you, and you never quite finished that instant message to your friend. If you don’t have a charging cable with you, don’t panic. Chances are, someone in your office has come prepared. Ideally, you should have a spare external battery in your purse. They are handy for so many devices. If you’re really stuck, head to your local phone store and grab some charge while you browse.
