5 Beauty Tips to Boost Your Confidence in a Heartbeat

More often than not, how we look and how we feel are in complete disharmony. Despite the compliments, we receive from people we love, and despite the genuinely stunning reflection staring back at you from the mirror, you might find yourself feeling unattractive, exhausted, or simply dissatisfied with your appearance. These internal feelings are not something we should ignore, and with so many healthy ways to beautify ourselves inside and out, we can create an effective, loving routine of quick beauty boosters. What follows are 5 beauty tips to boost your confidence in a heartbeat.

On some days, a simple facial mask paired with a little pampering for your tired feet, or an Epsom salt bubble bath can do the trick. Then there are those days when you need a little more than that to inspire a smile, let alone a proud strut down the street. When you’re in need of some emergency beautification, use the following methods to increase your confidence and feel much better in your own, already beautiful skin.

1. Bring out your essential oils

There’s nothing quite like using Mother Nature’s finest inventions to feel better and look better in a single go. As a perfect example of achieving those two goals with a single action, you can choose your favourite essential oils and use them according to your mood. 

For instance, you can diffuse your favourite scent in the morning to wake up energized and start your day feeling refreshed and rested. Alternatively, you can use a few drops in an evening bubble bath and let your pores soak in all the goodness of these natural healers. Apply your favourite oil topically, and turn it into a brief, but relaxing massage to enhance your energy for the entire day.

2. Give yourself a face massage

Of course, you can always book an appointment with a professional, but when you’re in a rush and in need of a quick and efficient pick-me-up, a facial massage is a great way to restore your confidence and rejuvenate at the same time. 

Make sure to use a gentle oil or a cleanser that is perfect for your skin type, to avoid any irritation and make the most of the product while you press it gently into your skin. Of course, don’t put any pressure on your eye area, since the skin there is too thin and sensitive. 

3. Plump up your pores

When you’re stressed, your skin feels the effects of all that negativity and pent-up emotions. Add environmental pollution into the mix, and your skin will suffer all the more, especially over time and without proper treatment. Some of the most common symptoms include dehydrated pores, dryness, irritation, redness, and the appearance of fine lines.

To battle those effects of stress and give your skin that much-needed boost of hydration, apply a hyaluronic acid serum that also contains aloe vera for a soothing, restorative effect. It’s equally good for your complexion as a preventative self-care measure against the elements and any stress, as well. 

4. Beautify your nails

It takes very little time to bring out your arsenal of nail colours and get creative. The colouring will help you feel more beautiful, you’ll give your nails some necessary care, and you can unleash your imagination with how you want your hands and feet to look for a change.

You can soak your feet first and scrub the excess hardened skin if needed, and then apply a moisturizer for a smooth step. Then, you can apply a nail hardening polish that can improve the health and appearance of your nails and make you feel as if you’ve just treated yourself to a professional mani-pedi session! 

5. Put on your favourite tunes

But don’t just take a seat and let the music take you down memory lane, no – get active! Get up, and start moving, dance so that you can release any negativity, sing your favourite lyrics, and get your body energized in a matter of minutes. Music has such a powerful effect on our bodies and minds, and you don’t have to go to a concert or to an aerobics class to evoke the same beneficial results. All you need is some inspiration and a little patience.

Listening to music will help your body produce dopamine, one of those happy hormones that in turn reduces cortisol (stress) levels in your body. Start dancing to your favourite tunes, and the effect will be all the greater.

While it is true that your beauty comes from within, nourishing your beauty and your serenity inside and out can be a powerful tool to aid your self-care and ensure that you feel amazing in your own skin. It takes time to develop a perfect routine that makes you appreciate yourself together with all of your imperfections, but sometimes a little can go a long way in finding the right path to inner and outer beauty alike. Use these tips to discover and empower your beauty one day at a time.
