I know you are probably laughing at the title of this blog post. But let’s face it. Don’t we all have those days when hair is dirty, we have spots on our face, we haven’t been eating healthy for a while and can’t be bothered to work out? I know I do! So how on earth are we supposed to look amazing when, in fact, we’re feeling far from amazing?
I’m no expert by any means, but here are some tips I thought I’d share with you to give you that boost of confidence when you feel like your body is not coping with your mood. They work for me, but they might not work for you. So read along and tell me in the comments if you do any of these!
1. Treat your skin
Make a habit of washing your face and to treat it well. I know that if my skin is not looking too well, it will bring my confidence down and I will probably cake my face with make-up (which only makes it worse, I know). So one of the best things you can do for the skin is to go make-up free, eat well, work out (as this will release toxins from your body) and use your best facial products. You only need a couple of days until your skin starts breathing again!
2. Pimp up your sleep routine
Get some new pyjamas or get a massive pamper session, up to you. But what I’m trying to say is that little things make us feel better than a good night’s sleep. I take my showers at night, so if I’m feeling a bit down, I would probably do a whole pamper session with an exfoliator, moisturiser, and maybe even paint my toe nails before going to bed! Anything to keep my mind off what’s stressing me and to feel a little more beautiful.
3. Wear that garment that suits you like a glove
Don’t you love it when you’re wearing an outfit that is comfortable and makes you feel like you’re wearing what suits you best? Obviously you should always feel comfortable and confident in the way you’re dressed, but I think it’s nice sometimes to pull out that flattering skirt, dress or shirt and receive some compliments for them! Think about it this way: the way you dress affects your psychological state as well 🙂
Whether you haven’t had enough sleep, you have a cold or just a horrible hangover, I hope these tips will help you for those days when you roll out of bed and think you look like crap. And if that day you can’t stay home and eat your chips and Netflix (which I am more than guilty of), you fake your way out with these tips which I’ve just shared. Just remember than a little self-care and some TLC can go a long way!
