How many times can you think of when you saw a pretty girl without makeup and you thought that she looked amazing and you wished you looked like her? Admit it that this happened to you at least once in your life. Even if you saw a model on the cover of a glossy magazine. The truth is that a lot of girls feel pretty only if they have makeup on. This way they can hide some flaws if they have such, or just because they feel uncomfortable showing “their real face”.
Well, today we have decided to tell every girl she is beautiful and she does not need tons of makeup to feel pretty. But if you still need some help with getting used to it, here are some tips that will help you in this task.
#1 Take care of your skin
You need to remember that your skin is your everything when we talk about beauty. That is why you need to take care of it the most. Begin with moisturizing it. You need to turn this into a routine. Every night before you go to sleep you need to apply moisturizing cream on your face. You can do this also in the morning if you feel like your skin needs extra care. This mainly happens in the winter when the cold weather dries your skin.
If you have some pimples or acne, make sure you treat them properly and do not pop them. Even though it is quite irritating to have a pimple or two, you should not pop them, because when you do, additional dirt and bacteria may enter the pores and this may lead to having even more pimples. So, be careful how you treat them.
#2 Get enough sleep
You have probably noticed that when you go to bed late and get up early, you feel tired in the morning and you can tell by looking yourself at the mirror. This is often because of the dark circles you have under your eyes. They usually occur because of lack of sleep. So, you need to make sure that you sleep about 7-8 hours a day. Of course, lack of sleep is not the only reason people have dark circles under their eyes. And this leads to the next tip.
#3 Eat healthily
As we have mentioned above, the only reason for dark circles and puffiness around the eyes is not only the lack of sleep. Researches have shown that a poor diet can have much more consequences than just gaining weight. And one of these consequences are dark circles and a tired look. If you eat products with a lot of sodium, it is no wonder that you have dark circles. The sodium drains your body and gives it that tired look everybody is afraid of.
You have probably noticed that some days you are looking more tired than other days, but the number of hours you have slept during the night stay the same. The reason again is poor diet. You need to make sure you eat fruits and vegetables every day. The minerals, vitamins and the energy they will provide, will make you both feel and look good. And as you know – healthy from the inside means pretty on the outside.
#4 Feel pretty – look pretty
When you feel pretty and you actually believe you are pretty, you will also look this way. However, this is quite hard for a lot of girls to get used to if they have low self-esteem. If that is the case with you, then try this exercise. Repeat at least 50 times a day you are beautiful. Does not matter whether it is in the morning, in the evening, or when you are at work. Your subconscious will get used to that fact and will perceive you as beautiful even if you are having no makeup on. That is because this is the truth and you really are beautiful!
