No matter who we are and how confident we feel, all of us experience feeling uncomfortable in our own skin at one time or another. While this is normal, it doesn’t have to be your reality. All of us have a right to feel beautiful in our own skin and should feel this way every day of our lives.
Feeling this way takes a little practice, and some undoing of bad habits, but it is possible to feel wonderful about yourself everyday. Here’s our guide to feeling beautiful in your own skin...
NOURISH YOUR SKIN
This is an obvious step - when your skin is healthy and looks great, you feel beautiful. Many of us overlook the importance of a great skincare routine, and just what a difference quality products and a little time each day can make. Think about times when you’ve not felt brilliant about your skin - maybe when it’s dry, or during a breakout. This can make you feel pretty low in yourself overall, causing you to feel self conscious and uncomfortable. When your skin looks great, you feel the opposite - beautiful and confident.
A great place to start when it comes to working towards feeling beautiful in your own skin is by following a great daily skincare routine. Focus on nourishing your skin, providing it with all the essential vitamins and minerals it needs to be bright and healthy. Choose an all-natural product range and avoid applying anything full of artificial ingredients that can irritate and dry out the skin.
Our Rose Renew collection features rose water and rosehip seed oil, along with other powerful botanical ingredients to nourish, restore and replenish the skin. Each and every ingredient found in our products are chosen for their skin-enhancing properties. The range is loaded with pure and natural ingredients with a high organic content, perfect for nourishing the skin for bright and healthy skin that looks younger.
INVEST IN YOURSELF
How we feel in ourselves is closely connected to our self worth. A great way to improve on your self worth is to invest more in yourself. This doesn’t necessarily mean money, but more so time and attention. Putting little rituals in place that give you a boost and make you feel great about yourself will go a long way to helping you feel beautiful in your own skin.
A daily skincare routine is a great place to start, along with small acts of kindness towards yourself, such as a weekly yoga class, an hour or two a week to read in peace, a bath and a glass of wine, healthy and nutritious food and getting a daily dose of sunshine and fresh air are all great examples of how to invest in yourself.
EMBRACE YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY
Our skin tone, hair colour and eye colour typically work in harmony together, but many of us choose to alter some or even all of these elements. It’s suggested that your most flattering hair colour is your natural one, and the same goes for your skin and everything else about you. It’s tricky to see what you perceive as flaws as positives, but the sooner you start to embrace your natural beauty, the sooner you will begin to feel confident in your own skin.
Having glowing and healthy skin can really help here - allowing you to step out into the world feeling confident without a full face of makeup. If you tend to colour your hair, wear makeup daily or fake tan, try reducing what you do to change how you look slowly and see how it makes you feel.
With just a few changes to your routine, it’s possible to feel beautiful in your own skin, each and every day, just as you should.
