Self-confidence is a popular topic lately and, unfortunately, many women feel like they don’t “measure up” to the images they see online or on TV. They spend an immense amount of time and mental effort comparing themselves to other women, from their coworkers or Instagram influencers.
Ladies, this article is here to tell you to stop. First, you are beautiful as you are. No one in this whole world looks like you. You have a unique set of features, and you should be grateful for what you have.
Second, hating the way you look won’t solve anything. If a certain area of your body is really giving you grief, then it’s time to do something about it, get that look you’ve been dreaming of for years, and just get on with your life.
Below, you’ll find five easy ways to boost your beauty confidence and take back your life, ladies.
Give Lash Extensions a Try
Thick, long eyelashes will always be in style. There’s just something undeniably gorgeous about a woman with long, thick lashes. Unfortunately, not all lashes are created equal and some women get more than others.
And whereas in the past, the go-to answer was mascara, we now know that the popular make-up ingredient has a few downsides, primarily drying out your lashes and causing them to fall out.
On the other hand, Lash extensions from Selena’s Lash Studio let you keep your natural lashes clean and healthy, while also offering that beloved extra boost. Alternatively, you can try a lash lift, which enhances your own lashes, lifting them up and plumping them. It is sort of like mascara… but better!
Work on Your Posture
The unfortunate truth is most of us slouch way too much. Luckily, there are lots of great exercises and yoga routines that can really help you stand taller and with your back straight if you do them consistently.
Standing tall immediately lends you an air of confidence and makes you look… well, better. In turn, that will make you feel better, too. And hey, it’s a great way to highlight your natural assets!
Beat Down the Negativity
You know that feeling when you try on a dress at the store and your mind immediately goes “oh, that looks awful”? Well, tell it to be quiet and just move on.
Instead of spending the rest of the day thinking of all the parts of yourself that need changing, try to find something you like about your appearance. Then focus on that.
Stop Comparing Yourself to Other Women
Stop the comparisons as they only build negativity. The reality is that there will always be a woman who has something you don’t. Better hair, nicer breasts, slimmer thighs, or something else.
The list is endless. And most women focus on ticking things off the list. Instead, be happy about who you are, both in terms of what you have and what you haven’t.
Wear Heels to your Advantage
Many women are self-conscious about their height (both tall and short women). But a great way to just throw that to the wind is put on a classy pair of high heels and, in Nancy Sinatra’s words, “walk all over” your critics. High heels lend any lady a feeling of authority, class, and spunkiness, so don’t be afraid to take full advantage of that.
And remember, you already are beautiful – the best beauty trick is to have confidence in who you are!
