We all know beauty is subjective, as we are often told it’s in the eye of the beholder, yet there are some things you can do to optimize your appearance thus creating more confidence in the way you look, and therefore, feeling more beautiful.
After all, if beauty is subjective, in that everyone will have a different opinion of your level of beauty, surely the most important person to “convince” is yourself. Yet, as a society, we are not conditioned to have confidence in our appearance; after all, how many spot reduction or anti-wrinkle creams would the large cosmetic companies sell if we all felt good about our appearance?
Indeed, such marketing hones in on the insecurity we all feel about our looks and rattles our cages, poking on the pain points, from cellulite to stretch marks and dark circles under our eyes to crooked teeth.
That said, aside from the marketing tactics there are a few things you can do to feel more confident about your appearance, and in this article, we’re going to take a look at three things you can do to optimise your appearance.
One of the most significant hang-ups people have about their image is that of their teeth; many people complaining they are either crooked or not white enough. Let’s tackle this one first, then.
About straightening your teeth, there are many different types of braces available to help correct the alignment of your teeth. However, many people feel shy and embarrassed at the prospect of having to wear braces that people will notice upon meeting them (mainly adults) which is where lingual braces that are attached to the back of your teeth, meaning they are less visible can be helpful.
In terms of whitening your teeth, there are many options available from home remedies such as baking soda and cider vinegar to more professionally facilitated whitening regimes.
Another complaint many people have about their looks is that of having dark bags under their eyes, meaning they look puffy, tired and drained the whole time.
This is sometimes associated with not getting enough rest but the main culprit is actually found in dehydration – if you want to reduce the dark circles around your eyes then be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day, and primarily upon waking up in the morning.
Indeed, a good skin tonic is to drink a glass of water with freshly squeezed lemon juice each morning as it alklanises your system.
The one thing we all have control over, no matter how we look, is the clothes we wear – and we all can agree that there are some clothes that enhance our appearance and other garments that detract from it.
As a result, you should wear clothes that enhance your appearance and highlight your key positive features while drawing attention away from less desirable aspects of your figure.
In summary, there are many things you can do to optimise your beauty, thus increasing your state of confidence in terms of the way you look… They don’t cost a huge amount of money or require invasive procedures.
