You Want To Have The Best Breasts: Perform These 12 Rituals!
First of all, if you are a man and you are reading this, one big gbosa to you! That is if you are learning these tips in order to tell a woman about it or show it to your wife, sister, mother or your woman. If not for all these reasons, your secret is safe with me! Lol.
Now ladies, taking care of the breasts should be an important part of any women’s health regime. Most of the times we forget to take good care of them because of our busy schedules. It is extremely necessary to have a care routine for your breasts as it can minimize the health risks and enable you to have healthy and beautiful breasts. Regular care and self-breast examination can keep us away from developing fibrocystic (just google it if you don’t understand the term) breasts disease and cancer.
Here, I have compiled a list of 12 ways of taking good care of your breast.
1. Eat a healthy diet
Eating a well-balanced diet of vegetable, good quality meats and proteins, healthy fats, and nutrient-dense foods is essential to being vital and healthy. Make sure to get plenty of essential fatty acids and anti-oxidant rich foods. Buy as many organic foods as you can to avoid genetically modified foods and harmful chemicals. And reduce the number of processed sugars and simple carbohydrates in your diet, both things that create inflammation and acidity in the body.
It is important to moisturize your breasts and the area surrounding it, just like any other part of your body. So, there is a thin line between moisturizing and caressing your breast. Please stay focused and do the needful – just for health sakes only! The skin on the chest is thin and sensitive. Moisturize them with creams that abound in ingredients like hyaluronic acid and cocoa butter. Cocoa butter is more popular in Nigeria, have some in your closet.
3. Get The Right Bra
If breasts aren’t properly supported, the ligaments overstretch and sag. And most women don’t know how to stop their lovely breasts from sagging. Now you know! To prevent this, it is important to get the right bra size and shape, and also to wear it properly. It is important to get your breasts measured once in a while as breasts are known to change shape over the course of time. You can use a tape rule to do that – it’s not that hard.
4. Self-examine your breasts
Self-examining of breasts is important because it can help you catch anything unusual about them like the development of lumps. If you don’t know how to perform a breast examine, ask your gynecologist. The best time to perform one is while applying lotion or in the shower. Even if you monthly self-exam your breasts, it is important to visit your gynecologist once in a month, especially if you are over the age of 40.
Tip: I just want to post a tip for all the bustier gals out there like a friend of mine who always did her breast exams standing up in the shower as people say. It wasn’t until she did one laying down that she felt a lump. (which turned out to be cartilage that had fused together). But if you’re larger in the bust do them both standing AND laying down because the fat will be distributed differently that when you’re standing and you’ll get more of a self-exam in that way.
5. Mind your weight
When you gain weight, your breasts also change size which causes their skin to stretch. This overstretched skin can’t always go back into shape. Over time, it starts looking saggy. Exercising and keeping your weight in check can help you avoid it. Exercise can even aid in preventing breast cancer. Regular push-ups for fifteen minutes every day will make your breasts firmer.
6. Give them a massage
Giving your breasts a massage can help increase blood circulation. It will also improve its quality. Hold your breasts in your hands and gently press while moving upwards. Use your fingers and massage clockwise and then anti-clockwise. However, focus on the massage please and don’t get carried away. If you wish, your husband can help you.
7. Don’t forget folic acid
Not eating enough folate, the naturally occurring form of folic acid, is linked with impaired ability to repair DNA. And damaged DNA has, in turn, been linked to cancer. Folate is found in foods such as spinach and black-eyed peas, as well as in folic-fortified cereals and grains. Try to get 400 micrograms daily, or just go a pharmacist for a prescription.
8. Know your body
While self-exams haven’t been shown to decrease the number of breast cancer fatalities, the National Cancer Institute does say that it’s important to be familiar with how your breasts usually look and feel. That way, you’ll be better able to spot any changes so you can report them to your doctor. If you want to do self-exams, the best time is whenever your breasts are not swollen or tender (as they are for many women before or during their period).
9. Breastfeed your babies for as long as you can
Not only is breastfeeding good for your baby, but it’s also good for you as well. One study estimates that you reduce your risk by 4.1 percent for every 12 months of breastfeeding. So the longer that you breastfeed, the better it is for your breast health – and your baby, husbands exclusive! It is assumed that the lower levels of estrogen in the body during lactation is responsible for the reduction in risk. The hormone estrogen fuels 80% of all breast cancers.
10. Limit your alcohol intake
Alcohol use is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. It’s recommended to have no more than 1 drink per day. The reason I made it that short is because if you truly care for your breasts, you won’t even dare get high on alcohol. Water is just fine most times. Be smart!
11. Avoid the harmful impact of your beauty products
There are many dangerous and toxic substances used in beauty products these days. And many are now being linked to increased risks of health issues and cancers. I read just the other day that 99% of aggressive breast cancer tumors had parabens in them. Parabens are one of the most common preservatives we see in products like deodorants, shampoos, and body lotions. If you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your body. There are a lot of resources out there for natural body care. Find them and use them instead.
12. Exercise: move your body and boobs
Research suggests that increased physical activity, even when begun later in life, reduces overall breast-cancer risk by about 10 percent to 30 percent. All it takes is moderate exercise like a 30-minute walk five days a week to get this protective effect.
