Everybody wants to look and feel beautiful. The key is to love yourself, most importantly. You might feel like that’s a cop-out answer, but it’s actually the only answer that makes sense. Looking beautiful is all about feeling comfortable in your own skin. There’s no perfect size, shape, hair color, or any other aesthetic feature; beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And if you don’t feel confident or comfortable about the way you look then you need to think of changes you could make to your own perception of yourself. All that matters is whether or not you can embrace your flaws.

Be confident in public.

Looking and feeling good is all about confidence. The first step is to find a look that makes you stroll out of the door with pride. And it doesn’t have to cost you a fortune to look good either. Not everybody wants to go “au naturale” when they step out of the house, but that’s fine – cosmetic products don’t have to bankrupt you if you know where to buy them. You could get some perfume to help you feel a little more confident at public gatherings and events; smell is as powerful as aesthetic when it comes to feeling attractive. And if you’re asking yourself “how long does perfume last?” then the answer is: a long time. Not only does it have a good shelf life but you only need a small amount any time you use it. One bottle could last you a good few years, so that’s a good example of a cost-effective way to spruce yourself up. At the end of the day, feeling confident in public is down to you. You have to feel comfortable in the way you present yourself, whether that’s in regard to your look or your smell.

Improve your health.

The best way to look and feel more confident about your appearance is to improve your health. We’re not just talking about “getting skinny” here because skinniness isn’t always the epitome of good health – being underweight is just as unhealthy as being overweight, so you need to focus on a more holistic concept of healthiness. It’s not just about improving your physical health but your mental health; the better your mental state, the more confident you’ll feel about the way you look. It’s a self-serving positive cycle. You should fix your diet because the things you consume have the biggest effect on your body and mind. Having a more varied diet with all the carbohydrates, protein, calcium, and iron you need is a good way to balance out your chemicals. You’ll feel better physically and mentally. The path to looking and feeling beautiful is made easier by a healthy lifestyle.

Work on your social circle.

You might not truly realize it, but your friends and family have a big influence on the way you feel about yourself. If you’re not confident about any aspect of yourself, whether it be your appearance or something deeper, then you should have a circle of people to whom you can turn in order to help you out. Likewise, you should get rid of toxic people in your life. Boosting self-confidence is something that you have to do, but the path can be made easier by friends and family who are truly supportive of you, as you are supportive of them.

While it’s not as obvious as something like your skin, your feet are just as, if not more, important. Looking after your feet properly requires a lot of care and attention, and we spend so much time on our feet all day, every day, that actually, there are going to be some issues that crop up from time to time. While most of us wear shoes for the purposes of fashion, rather than practicality, this can be to the detriment of our feet. The one main solution to consider is to wear the right shoes (what a surprise!), but what are the best (and worst) types of shoes for your feet?

The Best…

There are two types that are particularly good for your feet. Any sort of athletic shoe is particularly good to support your feet, but sneakers are the best for overall comfort. Because the majority of sneakers have a lifespan of around 6 months, you’ve got a lot of wear in them, and they can last up to 500 miles. If you don’t consider sneakers to be a particularly fashionable item of footwear, you can dress them up in funky colors, and in fact, there is a website, https://www.alegriashoeshop.com/ that have some eye-catching designs. The other type of shoe for your feet is a wedge heel, and as most people opt for stilettos, this is a good alternative. The angle can give you a bit more support and balance, and you are less likely to fall down the stairs wearing a wedge heel!

The Worst…

Unfortunately, this is just a list of shoes that we all like to wear! From high heels, to flip-flops, and even ballet flats, they don’t provide the foot support. In fact, high heels can have an impact on your body by putting extra stress on your legs, back and hips, that can change the overall alignment of your body. In addition to this, high heels put more pressure on the ball of your foot, which will cause the natural padding of your feet to wear out, which contributes to problems like calluses further down the line. Pointed toe shoes have a tendency to squeeze your toes together, which doesn’t help if you’ve got bunions, and these shoes can cause your toes to curl under permanently. This is known as hammertoe, and will require surgery to get it rectified.

When picking any shoes, you need ones with good support, especially in the arch of the foot. Lots of people buy shoes that are too flexible, because we think that this is more comfortable, but in fact, it will cause many problems for you in the future. It’s always beneficial to look after your feet as best as you can, and http://www.healthywomen.org/ has some handy pointers to make sure your feet are in tip top condition. You should also try and avoid wearing the same pair of shoes for a given length of time, it’s better to switch up your shoes on a daily basis. Look after your feet, and they will look after you!

Skin issues are normal. Irritated and problematic skin most often includes blackheads and whiteheads, acne and pimples. It can affect everyone, no matter the age, skin color or gender. Those  conditions mostly are caused by one small, dull and persistent skin bacteria, medically known as Propionibacterium. Hormonal changes in our body, poor diet and neglect of self-care and hygiene are also included but it is important to emphasize that these are all connected. Your body is a machine- make sure ALL the parts are working.

Getting enough sleep and having healthy diet can help you get to flawless skin. By healthy diet I mean eating raw food (vegetables and fruits) and drinking plenty of fluids. Going to bed with makeup on is a total no-no, and I keep face wipes in bulk so there are no excuses. I also don’t usually wear a ton of makeup, opting for the natural look most of the time- my fave Healthy Skin Enhancer and a little bit of mascara.

I think that giving your skin a healthy treat is an indulgence we can all afford. For example, peeling masks are one of the easy ways to have a perfect skin. Using a facial peel off mask once per week will help you remove dead skin cells and blackheads which in fact are clogged pores. My recommendation, and also a great experience would be the Crystal Secret Black Mask. The product can be found online here: https://www.thecrystalsecret.com/products/black-mask, and surprisingly with a reasonable price. You will notice the outcome the very first time you try it. All in all, my advice is going to be very short and sweet:

Sleep, Drink water and don’t forget to treat your skin!

Health is a weird and strange thing – even when we are in a great spell of health, we can still get struck down by illness. However, if we live a healthy lifestyle, we will give ourselves and our bodies the best chance of bouncing back. We need to be healthy so that we get the most out of our lives. Whether that’s eating well and sticking to a healthy diet, or exercising – ideally both, we should try our best to be healthy and live a rewarding and healthy lifestyle to give us the best shot of living a great life!

However, as we said – being healthy can’t save you from every issue. Walking down the street might bring pains. Even accidentally bopping your nose can cause a bunch of issues. Sometimes, this can lead to surgery to repair busted ligaments in an ankle, or even a wonky nose thanks to an accident! Surgery is almost, almost a natural part of modern life and is a way for us to fix issues to try and enjoy a more comfortable life. Certainly, serious surgery can be unavoidable as it might be something that saves a life, but most surgeries are for purposes of comfort to fix issues that could lead to debilitation later in life. Whether your surgery is needed according to experts, whether it’s there for cosmetic reasons, – whatever the reason – surgery is something that you need to prepare for. Unfortunately, you can’t just lie around and wait for it.

Regardless of the surgery you need, you have to prepare. Firstly. you’ll have a consultation where your needs will be examined, and options will be presented to you – some of these options might be outside of surgery, and you should ideally opt for the choices that you can enact yourself to help your body before you need surgery – or to avoid it. Surgery is stressful. Sometimes, surgery can’t be achieved due to health issues, and you will be notified of this at a consultation. These might be health issues that you can modify – like weight. You’ll need to act on this so you can ensure surgery is an option.

Surgery is something with options as well – don’t pigeonhole yourself. If you feel like your consultation didn’t achieve what you want – get a second opinion before you return to give the go-ahead to surgery. If your second consultation ends up the same as your first, you’ll have a definite answer as to your options.

We must remember that surgery is a stressful process for the body. You are placed under heavy anesthetic and put to sleep, and then go under the knife. It’s not natural, and you are not suited to it. If you can avoid surgery, try to do so – but this is not always possible. Sometimes we need it to solve little niggles – but as said, you need to get ready – surgery isn’t done for fun! However, if you can prepare yourself well, your surgery might not even be that stressful!

Going on vacation is always an exciting time. You get the chance to see a part of the world which you haven’t seen before. And, you don’t have to worry about any of life’s normal little issues; like work and money. Instead, you can spend the time relaxing and having fun. This can all be ruined, though. Without the right preparation, it’s easy to go on holiday without the body you want. And, this can be enough to make you feel uncomfortable for the whole trip. To help you out with this, this post will be going through some of the important things to do to your body before you travel. With this in mind, you should be able to make your trip much more pleasant. And, it doesn’t have to cost you anything at all.

Tanning

To start, a lot of people go on vacations to hot places. And, in these places, you will often find loads of people with great tans. This can make you feel very out of place if you have a pale complexion. So, it’s worth getting a base tan before you go away. To do this, you have a couple of choices. In most cases, it’s best to do this through sunbathing; as long as you have the right protection. But, using a tanning bed or spray tan will also work well. Of course, this doesn’t just serve for vanity. Along with the benefits of looking good, having a tan will also increase your protection against the sun. There’s not much worse than sunburn when you’re on a nice trip. So, it’s best to make sure that you have this sorted before you go. Be careful, though; fake tans won’t give you this protection.

Getting in shape

Next, it’s time to think about a different aspect of your body’s appearance. A lot of people like to get into shape before they go on vacation. You will probably be spending a lot of your time wearing very few clothes. This means that you will be exposed and on show; driving most to try to look as good as they can. The biggest part of this journey will be your diet. You need to make sure that you’re eating a balanced and healthy diet long before you go on your holiday. Options like Huel are great for those who can’t be bothered with calorie counting; but, won’t be good for those that like variety in their food. But, there’s more to this than just food.

You also have to consider the exercise you do; when you’re planning to get in shape for your vacation. Putting effort into something like this will always pay off. And, in fact, it may only take a month or two for you to get there. During this time, you need to try and do some moderate or heavy exercise each day. Cardio work can be performed as much as you want. But, weight training will have to have breaks. If you’re unsure; you could always go and see your doctor or a personal trainer to figure it out. This will help you to clear up any concerns you might have.

Vaccinations/other medication

Now, as it gets closer to the vacation, you need to consider the vaccinations you might need to travel to your destination. Loads of countries will enforce mandatory vaccinations for their guests. This ensures that diseases don’t leave the country and get taken to a place where they could cause an epidemic. Finding this information out should be too hard. There are websites on the internet dedicated to helping people find out which vaccines they might need to travel to different places. Along with this, you might want to get some other medication for your trip. A lot of people find that they get sick on planes or in very hot places. So, it’s worth considering what you might suffer from while away.

Getting your hands on medication can be done through a few different routes. For vaccinations, you will need to go to a doctor. They will be the only people with access to the right chemicals to give you the vaccine you need. And, along with this, they will be the only ones who can give you proof you’ve had it. But, other medication can be sourced differently. There are loads of websites on the internet which can sell you bulk loads of medication. Buying pills like this should be done with care, though. Only ever buy from a company which you trust. And, only buy drugs which are recognized by your doctor.

Personal hygiene

Your personal hygiene could play a big part of your trip. And, for women, there’s something to be very concerned about; periods. Of course, you can’t exactly book a holiday to suit this time in the month. Instead, you have to find a way to solve the issue yourself. Norethisterone tablets are used to delay a period; making it much easier for you to feel comfortable swimming and enjoying yourself. Other embarrassing, but completely natural, bodily issues can also be solved with medication. For example, people who struggle to control their bladder might want to find a drug to ease this issue for them when they travel.

One of the biggest areas of personal hygiene which people fail to address before their trip is their skin’s health. This part of your body is the one organ that people see all the time. You can’t hide your skin; especially in a hot place. So, instead, you need to work hard to make sure that it’s clear of spots or blemishes before you go. As a pro-tip; bicarbonate soda is great for clearing the skin. But, of course, you probably have a few tricks up your sleeve.

Hopefully, this post will inspire you to start thinking about little improvements before your next vacation. A lot of people ignore these things until it’s too late. And, this will only lead to you feeling unsure about your body while you’re away. So, instead, do the work at home; it’s worth it.
