[8bag tips] How to become "photo star"

Our bags are always great on photographs - we? Not so much. I've decided to write article about improving your look at photos - enjoy.

Good photograph is important to good photos
Do you know this feeling when summer is all around, it is very warm and sunny, people are smiling and water in the ocean is just perfect. And this whole picture can vanish in one short while - when you'll see yourself in the photo. Do you have this, though saying "how these models can look so good on photos"? I had it too – today I know what to do to become "photo star". Don't worry – I'll show you. 

First of all, check if you often blink on the photos. Nothing is that awful than beautiful eyes... half closed. Try to control it. A good way to always have eyes open on photographs is to close them a while before "click" and open it slowly when the photo is taken – this can be confusing and seem to be hard but it isn't – really – just try!

If you don't have a supermodel figure you have to learn how to avoid the double-chin effect. It is very simple – just push your head a little forward. The most important part of your face is forehead – you have to imagine that it is sticking out. It is a little funny at the beginning but it works perfectly.

Find some photos of you that you really like. When you collect all pictures, put them on the table and find a common factor. There is a pattern – trust me. Try to get some pictures and find a way where you are looking great. 

What is the oldest trick ever? When you are smiling during the photos just put your tongue behind your teeth – you will have the perfect smile.

Sometimes our eyes are very red and tired. It has a terrible influence to photos! It is a simple way to avoid unnecessary Photoshop. Just use the eye drops (like Visine) and makes your eyes look alive.

The old rule says – smile! When you have grumpy face forget about good photos. A smile is a recipe for everything – even if it's dummy or goofy – it's smile. If your face will look strange – so what? It was a smile! Something funny already happened! A smile can help you in every situation. Smile is a key to perfect photo [8bag tips]

Remember to wear brighter colors – when you have dark make-up or dark clothes all photo can be too dark and it is hard to set proper contrast. Dark lipstick can successfully reduce your lips size – it isn't good effect at all. 

Light is a key – try to find a source of natural, daylight. When light is properly distracted you don't have to worry about unwanted shadows on your  face.

I hope that few tips will make your photos more acceptable and you become a photogenic model! Just start to practice – without it whole my words are useless!

Stay healthy with 8bag in 2016

New year 2016 has started and with it many promises. I will sign-up to gym, I will start diet etc. It is not necessary to promise anything yourself. Just start to do it! 

Imposisible doesn't exist!
First of all – reduce fast food, meat and white bread. Try new year with new diet – start to eat more vegetables and fruits. These little fellows can help you – trust me! Not only in weight reduction. People who eats a lot of vegetables and fruits are healthier – fruits have a lot of vitamins and they can help with increasing cancer protection.  

Good solution to start adventure with fruits and vegetables is a "half rule" – it's quite simple - just make sure that 50 percent of your meal are fruits or vegetables. 

Another great and simple thing you can do is reducing amount of sugar and calories in your drinks. Water is a key to everything. Juices contains a lot of sugar and empty calories. Water gives life, water can clear your body out of toxic, water keeps you hydrated.  

When you drinks coffee or tea try not to sugar them. Simple thing but limits a lot of calories! Our recommendation is to drink around 8 glasses or 2 liters of pure water (without CO2). 

It is good when we are trying to help ourselves via diet. There is no better thing that take a tour back to the past and start to eat like our grandfathers. Cooked meat, steamed vegetables, fresh fish – that are meals which are healthy and tasty. Try not to use salt and another salty spices.  

Healthy year with 8bagNatural food is always better than processed GMOs. All these chickens in well known colonels restaurant are...empty. Did you noticed that when you are eating there you are hungry in about 30 minutes? Food in there has its volume but it is just empty calories. 
Buy note. Yeah, just like that. You will keep you 
healthy when you become smart shopper – before you go to any shop write down what you have to buy. It can reduce your chances to buy something you don't needed. Like these candies next to cash desks. Promotions and discounts can distract you but you have to be smarter than that! 

I don't say that snacks aren't good – they are but... double chocolate candybar isn't good at all. It is better to buy some almonds or nuts. Almonds are great for our metabolism. Beside chocolate – 100g of almonds! 

Fight for your right! Do you were on this party when everybody was having good fun, you all were drinking and suddenly somebody poped-up with idea – let's order a pizza! You weren't even hungry but... you ordered it with your friends and you ate your part – and for what? Next time just say that you are not hungry - I think that your friends will understand that. 

Stay healthy in 2016! All good wishes from 8bag team!
