What’s the first thing you see when you look in the mirror? For most people there are a few areas we focus on first.
An optimist might look to their favorite features and gain some quick self confidence.
Where as the pessimist will probably be drawn to their perceived flaws.
No matter which type of person you are, chances are you want to look a little bit better than you do today.
Fortunately, that isn’t too hard! You just need to continue focusing on what works and find a few new tips and tricks to address your problem areas.
While everyone is a bit different, there are a few shared spots that usually come in near the top of the list.
Specifically, try to find ways to feel good about the following three areas and you will soon be on your way to looking better — and feeling better about your mental and physical health.
1. Your Hair Essentials
No matter what type of hair you have, how you style it, or what kind of cut you go for, it will always be one of the first things people notice.
So it really pays to spend both the time and money necessary to keep it looking its best.
It definitely doesn’t have to be extravagant. Some of the best looks are actually very simple.
There is often something alluring about that carefree aura.
But you will get what you put in.
So consider paying for some extra trips to the salon, putting in the time for great coloring, or just continuing with the same proven methods of brushing and washing your locks consistently.
2. Only Skin Deep
Some people struggle with their skin for their whole life.
Others look flawless seemingly without effort.
But everyone feels some sort of way about their skin, and it will have some impact on your overall look.
This isn’t something to fret about.
But it does mean that you should put some effort into making it look its best — without going overboard.
Find the right way to wash your face with products you trust and stick with them.
Even if the best ones you find are a bit pricey, remember that this is an investment into better mental and physical health.
More often than not, it really is worth it. Exfoliate properly for your skin type and moisturize regularly.
Try to strike the right balance between not enough and too much.
Again, don’t feel bad if it doesn’t always work out.
For most people, this is a lifelong journey and there will be good weeks and bad.
3. All About the Details
While the big ticket items are what most people focus on, there is a lot to be said about the smaller stuff.
Sometimes, the details make all the difference.
They may not be the showstoppers.
But especially when it comes to the people who see you often, subtle changes and paying attention to the little things can make them stand up and take notice.
Trying trends like baby hairs or eyebrow treading can be a really fun way to play around in harmless ways.
New makeup styles and colors are great too.
And in general, anything related to your eyes can really have a large effect.
Try an eyelash serum if you want to find a better way to get eyelash growth and maximize your beauty.
Beauty for All the Right Reasons
Physical beauty definitely isn’t the most important thing in life or relationships.
As they say, you should never judge a book by its cover.
Still, we all want to look our best and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Just remember to keep everything in perspective.
Have fun with your hair styles, skin care routines, and other details like eyelashes and makeup trends.
Try not to take things too seriously or worry too much when things don’t turn out perfectly.
More than anything, always put in the effort for yourself — not anyone else.
