Today I am bringing you 8 ways to feel instantly more beautiful.
These are practical and easy tips for you to implement in your daily life for when you need a little beauty refresher. Remember that truly being beautiful means that you have beauty in your heart, as outward appearance doesn’t last.
I felt compelled to write this post because I find that so many girls and women struggle to believe that they are beautiful. Maybe you are one of these people and are searching for the answer, well don’t worry lovely, I’ve got you!
Even if you aren’t one of these people then there are some great tips in this post that can help remind you when you are feeling not so pretty.
Either way I hope that you enjoy reading this post and comment below to tell me what your favourite ways to feel more beautiful are!
1. Smile More
There is truly nothing more beautiful than someone smiling. Why? Because it is a reflection of how you feel inside.
The best thing about smiling is that it’s contagious. Just think of someone right now smiling as big as they can with their face all lit up. Imagine seeing them truly happy. I bet you are smiling right now just thinking of them. Smiling creates warmth in our hearts and instantly makes us feel better inside.
As someone with a less than perfect smile having never gotten braces, even though I was recommended to, when something makes me smile, I can’t help but feel better about myself and more beautiful.
2. Wear Some Colour
Science has shown that when someone wears colour they draw attention. When someone wears colour with confidence they light up the room.
You might have heard that wearing black is more attractive because its suppose to make you look slimmer but this doesn’t make a lot of sense to me because if you are trying to hide something about yourself such as your weight then you are focusing on the negatives which will show a lack of confidence. True beauty comes from how you feel inside so if you choose to wear something that is bold and wear it with confidence then you will feel good inside which will show your beauty on the outside.
If you are nervous about wearing colour because it’s not something you naturally feel comfortable in, try getting used to it by incorporating little bits of colour into your outfits such as a bright bag or a colourful scarf. Before you know it you will love wearing colour.
3. Get A Hair Cut
A new hairdo is a great way to feel fresh and beautiful. Even if it’s just a trim, having someone else give your locks a little lift can make you feel so good about yourself.
I know for myself, whenever I get my hair done, even though how it looks is a wonderful result of the haircut, the part is the pampering. Having silky hair a nice blowout makes me feel fresh and feminine.
Next time you want to feel a little more beautiful, ask yourself when the last time you had a haircut, maybe it’s time for a new do.
4. Let Loose A Little
Getting out and having a little fun is a great way to feel more beautiful because fun brings laughter and who doesn’t feel good when they are laughing? Naturally laughing brings out attractiveness in people and you are sure to feel it in yourself.
Letting loose also allows some weight to come off your shoulders and helps you to destress which can make you feel less in your head and more in the moment. Being able to experience things in a stress free light brings more sense of happiness and beauty in the soul.
5. Put On Some Lipgloss
As much as they say wearing lipstick will give you confidence, wearing lipgloss can make you feel more beautiful.
The thing about lipgloss is that it is designed to bounce light off the lips giving a fuller lip appearance.
Lipgloss softens the face rather than making you look more serious and pulled together perfectly like lipstick and is a great option for adding some feminine touches to any makeup look.
6. Ask A Loved One
Sometimes we need a little reminder of why we are beautiful and a loved one is a great way to get this reminder.
Unlike a stranger, a loved one knows you and your heart and can easily remind you of the things that truly make you beautiful. You will know its genuine and that what they same comes with good intentions.
If you aren’t sure what makes you beautiful, ask someone close to you to help you get to know your best qualities.
7. Smell Pretty
I know for myself, wearing a pretty scent makes me feel so feminine and pretty. It could be as simple as a fruity body wash or a favourite perfume, but whatever way you like to smell nice, you can use this as a great way to feel more beautiful.
There are so many scents out there to choose from so I suggest finding a few different ways you want to feel. For example, using a citrusy body lotion might make you feel fresh and awake while a lavender scented leave-in conditioner might make you feel relaxed and at peace. All of these feelings bring a sense of beauty because they are making you feel good inside.
8. Get An Inner Makeover
Probably the best way to feel truly beautiful is to get an inner make-over.
By completely stripping down all the walls and negativity you feel inside and building up positivity and love instead you are sure to feel more beautiful as a person.
Here are the ways in which you can have an inner makeover:
- Ask yourself what you are doing well in and what areas need work. Do you carry any burdens, feelings of hurt, negative self-talk or anything else that can be weighing on you? This is the time to confront all of the truths in your life so you can begin working through them. Are you living by the things you value or not? Healing is the biggest step to feeling more secure in yourself.
- Envision the type of person that you want to be and feel. Accept that you can be that person and with Gods guidance, you can open your heart and let him lead you in letting go of how you previously saw yourself and instead see how He sees you.
- Know the truths from the lies when it comes to the false representations of beauty in the world. Find out what is real and fake. Pay no attention to fashion magazines for beauty and look to real girls and women instead.
- Love the skin you’re in. Your body is uniquely your own with its very own story. Every blemish, wrinkle, stretchmark, birthmark and “flaw” that you see all make up you and your beauty. Get rid of the unrealistic expectations you have set on your body and realize that it’s the body that God gave you because he saw you as beautiful and it’s the one you will always have.
Where True Beauty Can Be Achieved
In order to truly feel beautiful inside and out you must look to what God says about beauty:
1 Peter 3:3-4
Your beauty should not come from outward adornments, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewellery and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.
He wants us to focus on becoming beautiful inside as this is the beauty that lasts a lifetime and is what truly shows on the outside.
