Confidence in your skin has more to do with the love you give it, both physically and mentally, than just going through the motions of an old routine. Loving your skin takes care and consistent attention, and confidence comes from accepting all parts of your skin. This acceptance can take time and energy. No one loves everything about themselves all day, every day but with little habits, you won’t even think about it. Consider these tips on how to be more thoughtful about what you do for your skin to gain true confidence, physically and mentally.

Balanced Lifestyle

No one is perfect, 100% of the time but creating a balanced lifestyle for yourself does more for your health than you realize. This looks different for everyone, but the idea is to create healthy habits where you can which give you flexibility. Focus on what makes you feel good and build your lifestyle around this. Do you like walking or biking? Make time for those activities that are both enjoyable and good for your body. 

Focus on Positivity

Bringing negativity into your life can start to bring you down. Stress affects the body in many ways and can start cause different issues. People also tend to feel better when you are uplifting and not pulling them down which translates into confidence.

  • Compliment others.
  • Find beauty in the small things.

Practice Self-Care

The idea of self-care isn’t about giving yourself an excuse to procrastinate, but giving your body a break from daily stress. Self-care gives you a chance to refuel your body and mind and save it from the demands of your job or family.

  • Read your favorite book or watch your favorite movie.
  • Cook a new recipe.
  • Exercise, even just a walk.

Explore What Works for You

Just because you see a product or a routine work for someone else does not mean it will work for you and your life. It can take some exploring to find what your skin needs and what is just a waste of money. You should consider different aspects of your lifestyle to find what is best. For instance, if you don’t have problem skin you probably do not have any need for a face wash made for acne-prone skin. On the other hand, if you have oily skin you may want to incorporate a setting powder into your makeup routine. Here are some things to think about when deciding what you really need to include in your lifestyle:

  • Does it force you to change something about yourself?
  • Does it actually work or do you just like the idea of it?
