Beauty and beauty standards are a hot topic nowadays. Luckily, there has been a culture shift whereby conventional beauty standards are being ditched for a more modern approach. Not everyone is supposed to be the same size, height, weight, or have the same fashion sense. Everyone is different and that’s what makes us all beautiful. There are some key areas that we all would agree make us feel especially amazing. Here are some things that when we get right, make us feel and look incredible.
Hair is a complex part of our body. It’s mainly made out of protein and that’s why it can survive so much harsh treatment. It’s strong, tough and its primary function is to keep our head and brain warm. It’s also why hair sometimes fights us when we’re trying to get it just right. Making our hair soft, shapely and yet shiny too, takes a lot of effort.
- Increase the protein! Our hair is protein, so use a shampoo and conditioner that has protein infused in its ingredients.
- Short drying time. If you use a dryer to style your hair, you must make sure you minimize the time you use it on your hair. Before you turn it on, form a plan of what you’re going to do. Don’t use it for more than 2-3 minutes. Your hair will become frizzy and brittle.
- Don’t wash it too often. You should not be washing your hair every day. It takes time for your hair to be covered in your natural oils; about 2-3 days. This is what makes our hair glossy, shiny and strong. So wash your hair twice or three times a week only.
A gorgeous smile is a sign of health, youth, and beauty. When we have confidence in our smile, we feel like we can talk to anyone, meet new people and be who we want to be, without having to hide our teeth. You should never feel like you cannot smile in public because of crooked teeth. Adults have the option to straighten teeth without braces thanks to the modern clear aligner technology. You simply bite down on the mold that is sent in the package to your home and after a short span of time, you get your invisible braces through the mail. They have been designed purely for your mouth and they give you a straight smile within 6 months. Smiling without holding back in public can be a liberating experience.
Thankfully, the notion that we all have to be a certain shape of the body to be beautiful has been broken and smashed. Finally, we can all take pride in how we look without being judged by beauty magazine editors. Taking pride in our bodies, our style, and how we feel about our bodies is itself, one of the most beautiful things about us. Not worrying, being happy and liking who we are is perhaps better than any of the others mentioned above.
What are the things that make you feel beautiful? Everyone is different and we all like certain things about our look, so let us know and talk about this among your friends and family!
