Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. And the only beholder who matters when it comes to your appearance is you. You shouldn’t be concerned with what friends or magazines say the ideal standard of beauty should be. Everybody’s individual in interests and appearance, and everybody has their insecurities. No two people look the same and that’s the way it should be. The point is that anyone can look good if they feel good. You likely don’t believe people when they tell you that you’re beautiful and we’re all like that to some extent.
At the end of the day, you’re your own worst critic. You see all the aspects of your appearance that you hate when you look in the mirror or see photos of yourself. All you care about is your own opinion of you. That’s why you should be striving to make yourself happy with your appearance and nobody else. Anyone can look good as soon as they start to feel good about the way they look. If you want to start feeling happy with your appearance then this article might just be your answer.
The best way to look better and feel better about the way you look is to start a routine of self-care. What that means is you shouldn’t be beating yourself up over your appearance. Your goal should be to look after your body and maintain a good standard of health. A healthy and happy appearance will follow and that should be your end-objective anyway. It’s not about reaching some Hollywood ideal because many famous stars are edited in post-production so they look “perfect”. Your goal should be to focus on a healthy diet, exercise routine, and mental state.
Part of looking good is about wearing clothes which accentuate your natural appearance. That means you need to be bold. You need to stop telling yourself that you can’t wear certain things because fashion is all about feeling good in what you wear. If you feel good in what you wear then you’ll look good in what you wear. Don’t feel uncomfortable because you’re convinced others will judge you; people only judge those who don’t look confident in what they’re wearing. If you want to wear that cute jacket you saw in a shop window then buy that cute jacket. Confidence is the key, as we’ll discuss at the end of this article.
You really need to pay attention to your skin if you want to feel happier about your appearance. No, this isn’t an article encouraging you to pour on copious amounts of concealer to look prettier; we’re suggesting the opposite, in fact. You should be striving to keep your skin as healthy as possible if you want it to look good. That doesn’t mean you should never wear makeup again but you should definitely wear it in moderation if you want to give your skin a break to recover now and then. Blemishes go away when the skin is no longer irritated. Of course, your mental state affects your skin too; better controlling your stress levels will reduce acne, for example.
Essentially, natural solutions and remedies are always the way to go when it comes to skincare. Yes, you’re probably tired of hearing people go on about “organic” ways in which you can look after your skin, but it’s definitely true that your appearance thrives better through healthy and natural skincare rather than with some of the more toxic cosmetic products on the market. Cucumbers are often used to hydrate skin, for example, because they’re composed mostly of water. You might also want to look into hyaluronic acid serum if you want a cosmetic product that purely serves to hydrate your skin and isn’t pumped full of toxic ingredients. Obviously, drinking water is also one of the best ways to hydrate your skin if you want to achieve a naturally healthy glow.
The final ingredient is the trickiest one to master. If you want to start feeling good about the way you look then it all comes down to confidence. That’s been mentioned throughout this article, of course, but you still might not be feeling as strong and powerful as you hoped you would by now. You need to focus on your mental state, as mentioned throughout this article. That’s the crux of feeling beautiful.
There is no “perfect” way to look. There is no objective way of measuring beauty. At the end of the day, you need to work on making yourself happy with your appearance. Striving for a healthier lifestyle will help with this because it’ll improve your mental state and your body; both of those things combined are bound to make you more positive about your appearance.
