Having self confidence is important, but it stems from more than speaking confidently and believing in yourself. While it’s something you should definitely be doing, it’s understandable that you may feel shy when it comes to your appearance – everyone does! It’s important to remember that everyone is beautiful in their own way! However, there are many things you can do to boost your self-esteem and today, we’re going to explore what you can do when you’re feeling shy about your appearance.
One of the biggest things people worry about these days is their weight, and what you’re eating could have a dramatic effect on how you feel about yourself. Eating well not only helps you regulate your weight, but it can improve your skin tone, promote healthy thoughts, and generally make you look “well” in yourself. Try and balance your diet with plenty of nutritious foods like fruit and vegetables, and while it’s perfectly okay to enjoy a naughty treat every now and then, try and save them for special occasions. After a few weeks of eating well you’ll begin to notice the difference!
Consider surgical options
Some people simply aren’t happy with their natural looks, and this might be because they feel like their lips aren’t plump enough or their nose is the wrong shape. In these cases, you can explore surgical options by speaking to a rhinoplasty & nose job expert or looking at lip fillers to help boost your confidence, therefore making you feel less shy about your appearance.
Practice make up techniques
Surgery isn’t for everyone, and can be rather costly, so if it’s not something you can imagine for yourself, then you might consider using makeup to improve your appearance. You can use bronzers and highlighters to contour your face, accentuating the best features. You can also apply fake eyelashes and use make up to make your eyes look bigger.
Get plenty of sleep!
Bags under your eyes and dark circles often appear when you’re not getting enough sleep, and can change the shape of your face. Making sure you get plenty of sleep will help eliminate these bags and dark circles, and in time will help your skin glow – making you look and feel a thousand times better.
Drink enough water
Water is another “hack” you can use to help improve your appearance. Water is detrimental to your health, and simply upping your water intake could have massive effects such as clearing your skin, flushing out toxins from your body, and also promoting healthy weight management. If you struggle to drink enough water, consider buying a bottle with time markers to help you keep track of your water intake.
Cut out stress
Finally, stress can cause your physical appearance to change, from dark circles around the eyes to grey hairs, and if you’re feeling stressed, it might be one of the reasons you’ve been feeling shy. Cutting out stress wherever possible in your life will help you mentally and physically, and therefore make you more confident in yourself!
Self confidence can come from many places, and these tips will help you regain confidence in yourself.
