With so many pills, products, and potions on the market today that claim to make you look beautiful it can be difficult to know where to start. Beauty doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, it almost never should be. As the days get shorter and cooler, there has never been a better time to embrace your natural beauty and make the most of what you have already. With a few quick and easy adjustments, you can look your best at any budget.
1) Buy the Basics
Trends come and go but classics are forever. Simple pieces that fit well and flatter your body shape are always worth investing in. It might be tempting to splurge on the latest statement jacket or novelty clutch bag, but these rarely stand the test of time. Better to invest in pieces that you know you will wear regularly and be able to build several outfits with. A great white t-shirt is a perfect staple and so is a leather/faux leather jacket. If you feel like adding trend items as a treat, then your basics are the perfect starting point. The classics have become classics for a reason.
2) Take Care of Your Skin
Our skin is the body’s largest organ. It is a living, breathing part of us and needs to be treated with respect. Slather on the suncream (harmful rays are present even when it is overcast) and buy skin care that is right for you. Take the time to really assess your skin type or get some professional advice. With good skin, it is not necessary to overspend on makeup.
3) Keep Your Hair in Good Condition
A regular trim is a great way to keep your hair in optimal condition. Split ends can travel from the ends of the hair all the way up the shaft, so it is important to trim them regularly. A hair mask can be an indulgent evening treat as well as adding volume and shine. Without changing your style at all, a trim can really create a polished, fresher look. It’s always exciting to head to the salon, but there’s nothing to stop you from doing it at home.
4) Pamper Your Hands
Our hands are the first area of our body to show the signs of ageing. They go through a lot in the day. Make sure you are hydrating the skin effectively and keeping cuticles healthy. You don’t always have to select an eye-catching varnish colour to make an impression. Clean, manicured nails with a clear gloss coat are always timeless and chic.
5) Think Positive!
If we feel happy, healthy, and in control our beauty radiates from the inside out. It is commonly thought that we attract the type of energy we emphasise. Thinking encouraging and positive thoughts encourages encouraging and positive circumstances, for example. Whatever you wear, a smile is always the best accessory.
