They say beauty is only skin deep, and it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Unfortunately, though, this kind of thinking only goes so far, as vanity is all too real and people make judgments about others based on looks alone. The reality is when you meet someone for the first time, your physical appearance makes the very first impression.
If you want others to notice your inner beauty, make the choice of first and foremost, being adorned by God. Then, work on the outside. We’re not talking anything drastic like plastic surgery. Instead, work on a little cosmetics…
Show Off Those Pearly Whites
Nothing turns people off more than dingy teeth. If your teeth have a yellowish hue, it’s time to brighten them up with one of the best teeth whitening products you can afford.
From store-bought whitening strips to a professional whitening done by a dentist, there are several ways to make your teeth whiter and brighter. Once your teeth are as white as they can be, smile! It’s the easiest way to improve your looks.
Get Glowing Skin
The health of your skin is an indication of your inner health, so make sure it’s in good shape. Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated and take vitamin C to help it with collagen production, which ultimately prevents lines and wrinkles. If you suffer bouts of acne, be sure your daily skincare routine includes products designed to reduce and prevent acne flare-ups.
Lastly, if you lead a hectic lifestyle, try making time to de-stress. Stress can wreak havoc on your skin, so be sure you’re making time to relax.
Treat Your Locks with Love
The condition of your hair is something many people notice right away. If it’s unkempt, it will give the impression that you don’t care about your appearance. One of the quickest ways to improve your look is to get a new hairstyle. Look online or through magazines to find a style you like and then head to your stylist for a cut.
If you don’t want to cut your hair, you can make sure it’s healthy by using quality products. You can also avoid things like alcohol, cigarette smoke, and excess sunlight as all these things can make your hair dry and brittle.
Get into Shape
If you’re self-conscious about your body, getting into shape can help you feel better about it. Begin a healthy eating plan that’s rich in fruits and veggies and start working out several times a week. Alternate your workouts between cardio and weights for the best results, both in your health and in your appearance.
Wearing the right clothing can help you look and feel better. If you’re still wearing the same clothes you wore in high school, it’s time for a change. Head out to your favorite clothing store and look for clothes that fit well and are from the current decade. Once you quit hiding behind those baggy sweatpants and oversized t-shirts, you’ll discover just how great you really look.
While working on your new year’s “word” and true adornment, use the tips above to improve the way you feel about the outside; be the beautiful person you know you are inside and out.
