How to Improve Yourself in 2019 with 5 Beauty Rituals:
Press Release — As 2019 arrives, we all set out to make goals to become the best version of ourselves in the new year, but ultimately, most of us end up failing within a few months. Do you ever wonder why? Could it be the negative aura we see when we look in the mirror? We are so hard on ourselves and often forget that self-love is the foundation to becoming the very best version of ourselves.
“If you can become confident in your own skin, identify and let go of any negative energy that you’ve been carrying with you; will be able to see yourself as someone with infinite potential and recognize that there’s really nothing to stop you from being fabulous this new year,” says Jennifer Hutchens, Brand and Product Development Director with Barely Xtensions.
Here are five ways to adopt a self-love beauty routine that will make you love yourself more:
Get To Know You
Getting to know yourself is an important step to achieving self-love. Identify the qualities that make you unique and pay attention to the things that make you feel uncomfortable or insecure. For example, if you don’t like looking in the mirror, ask yourself why? Journal your experiences to capture your thoughts. Open up your heart, your mind, and your spirit so you can feel what it is you need to achieve happiness and as time goes on, you can build on these discoveries to create a deep and meaningful relationship with yourself. Your physical well-being is the absolute core of a healthy mental, physical and spiritual body. When it’s out of whack, your life is out of balance too.
Embrace A Healthy Lifestyle
The saying beauty comes from within is true. You are what you consume and when it comes to beauty, a poor diet will impact you more than you realize. Learn to nourish your body: Go organic, eat more fruits and vegetables, take vitamin supplements, and avoid sugar and processed foods. Eating healthy and clean makes you feel good about yourself and increases energy. Be active, endorphins from exercise are the best medicine and actually trigger a positive mood!
Get Your Beauty Sleep
Beauty Sleep is the fountain of youth and if you’re not getting enough, it’s likely to be affecting your mood and appearance. While you snooze your body repairs and recovers itself and that leads to a long list of benefits to boost self-confidence. Eight hours every night is crucial to reducing stress, increasing energy and balancing hormones correctly in your body. Sleeping also reduces inflammation, which is beneficial for not only your skin but for weight control, sickness and reducing pain. The more you fine-tune your beauty sleep schedule, the more confident and energized you will look and feel. Investing in a satin pillowcase can also be a plus to save your hair from distress and your face from wrinkles.
Skin First, Then Makeup
Makeup can play a crucial part in boosting your confidence, but if your skin underneath isn’t in pristine condition you will continue to struggle with self-confidence. Starting with a clean nourished foundation of skin will enhance your natural beauty and boost your confidence tremendously.
When it comes to skincare and makeup you want the beauty benefits without the risk of toxins, parabens, and animal testing so you can feel good about the products you’re putting on your body. Skincare should be a nourishing, sensual experience. Take the time to find products that have essential oils and a blend of soothing botanicals to alleviate stress and promote relaxation in addition to enhancing your skin. Create a daily routine and also set aside one day a week as an at-home spa day to do a luxurious face mask and truly pamper yourself, you will feel like a queen afterward!
Once your skin is nourished and glowing, learn how to play up your features with makeup. We all have an inner artist waiting to pick up a makeup brush and contour our way to the best version of ourselves. We have the ability to be creative starting with a blank canvas every day. Pick up a new foundation and perfect your complexion, fill in a sparse brow with a new brow pencil, make your skin shine with an illuminating highlighter. There are so many ways to boost confidence and love yourself with makeup!
Nourish Your Hair
Hair makes a style statement of who you are so it is important to commit to a healthy hair routine in order to have shiny, beautiful, healthy hair that boosts your self-confidence. The first step is finding a successful haircare regime that will work for you. You want to use products that deeply nourish your hair and are more natural, sulfate, paraben and alcohol-free.
Start by focusing on your scalp by incorporating daily bruising and weekly exfoliating scalp treatments to cleanse your scalp of dead skin cells, excess oil, and products that can linger on your scalp between washes. If you don’t take all of that away, your scalp and your hair won’t be as healthy. You can also skip washing every single day. Your hair needs natural oils and washing every day strips them of this.
Next, always remember the key basics to haircare. Brush, Shampoo, Condition, Style. Take the time to enjoy brushing your hair removing tangles and stimulating the scalp. Shampoo your hair weekly, but not every day, your hair needs natural oils to thrive. On days you do not wash use a dry shampoo to refresh your hair at the roots. Condition each time you wash and in-between washes. You can use a dry conditioner or leave in serum to refresh on days you do not wash. Whenever your hair feels extra dry and brittle set aside time to do a deep conditioning mask. When you style and choose to use hot styling tools always use a heat protectant to prevent damage and breakage.
Just a little bit of regular hair care dedication will make an improvement to your hair leaving it nourished and easier to maintain and style. If you want to go the extra mile check out Barely Xtensions for instant length, color, and volume!
