I constantly come across women and men that are never satisfied with how they look. From weight to the shape of their face, they always feel bad about how they look. I try to remind them that everyone’s different and even those celebrities they admire aren’t perfect. The truth is, we all deal with our own body confidence issues. I have a few tricks I’ve picked up from celebrities to help me feel confident even when I might not feel like I look my best.
Dress For You
I don’t have to wear the latest trends if they don’t work for my body. Dress for your body type and you’ll feel far more confident. Be comfortable in your own skin and your beauty will shine through. Demi Lovato isn’t ashamed of her curves. Embrace what makes you unique, don’t hide it.
Victoria Justice may seem perfect, but she isn’t always happy with her body. Instead of obsessing, she takes a step back and thinks about what is right. She’s grateful to be healthy and lets the body issues drift away.
Okay, so it may sound silly, but embrace your alter ego. Pretend you’re someone else when you’re not feeling confident with your looks. Even Beyonce embraces her alter ego Sasha when she doesn’t feel super confident on stage.
Basically, forget your imperfections and just love yourself. Confidence is sexy!
Lately, I have been feeling such a shift in how we all are feeling. Too much stress, not enough care for ourselves. Makeup can be fun, but at heart it is what is going on inside us that counts. As I have always said, no amount of makeup can mask a sad heart. The times in my life that I have felt the most beautiful have always had to do with how much I am laughing…not how much makeup I had on. So, in the spirit of this, I will be starting to share more stories and tips on the blog of how we can create beauty…starting from the inside! Because being beautiful is not just about makeup. It is so much more.
If you’ve been feeling a little crabby lately — maybe you feel more stressed or extra burdened than ever — it is possible to give yourself a personal reboot and be the kind of person others admire.
Our experts offer seven ways to increase your generosity, patience and tolerance — starting today.
Tip No. 1: Fill Your Personal “Pitcher”
Before you can be bighearted towards others, you have to do what certified health and wellness coach and registered dietician Adrienne Raimo calls “filling your pitcher” first. “This means taking care of yourself and your body,” says Raimo. “To be the best you can be, do your best to eat well, exercise and reduce stress. Otherwise, you’ll feel depleted.”
There are certain people who simply radiate. The types of people who walk into a room, and fill it with warmth, and beauty. To me, Patrice Grell Yursik of Afrobella is one of those very people. Not only is her blog fantastic, but she inspires those around her to embrace their own, individual beauty.
