From using a soft eyeliner pencil to make your eyes pop to having daily morning meditation, we have a wide variety of tips that are sure to make you look and feel like your best self, so to learn what these tips are, keep on reading.
1. Drink Lots of Water
Our first beauty and wellness tip for you is probably at the top of everyone else’s list, too, and for good reason. Drinking a lot of water will help you in almost all areas of your life. Your body will feel more energized and refreshed, and it will be better empowered to rid of any toxins in your body. Your skin will be glowing, and your lips and hair will be perfectly hydrated. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water each day, but slightly more than that is even better.
2. Wear Light and Natural Makeup
One of the biggest things you can do to feel like the best version of yourself is to do just that; be yourself. A simple way to be yourself is to not hide your beautiful face under a thick layer of makeup. Don’t get us wrong; we love makeup and appreciate it daily, but we think that makeup should serve the purpose of enhancing natural beauty and not covering it up. By wearing light and natural makeup, you’ll feel like your truest self since you won’t be covering your natural face from the world, but at the same time, you’ll also be wearing just enough makeup to get that extra boost of confidence. A light line on the upper lashes with an eyeliner pencil, a soft coat of mascara, and a tiny bit of under-eye concealer can go a long way.
3. Get Enough Sleep
Everything you do throughout your day is affected by how much sleep you get. Your productivity at work, your mood, your appetite, your overall energy – all of these can be impacted positively or negatively by the amount and quality of sleep you had the night prior. Your goal should be to get at least seven hours of sleep per night, but this sleep must be good quality. This means you should avoid blue light (i.e., screens) before going to sleep and try to mentally wind down in the last 30 minutes you’re awake. Once you start waking up without any tired bags under your eyes, you’ll thank us for recommending getting more sleep.
4. Move Your Body
Another wellness and beauty tip that will help you feel more energized throughout your day is to move your body. This looks different for every individual, so do what suits you the best, but this could consist of lifting weights, playing a sport, doing pilates in your living room, going on a walk, rock climbing, and the list could go on and on. Moving your body at some point instead of remaining stagnant throughout the day will help increase the positive hormones in your body and make you feel your best.
Last but certainly not least, you should start each day with a moment of slowness or meditation. By meditation, we don’t mean chanting or doing anything out of your comfort zone. Rather, it can be beneficial to slow down enough to calm your mind and focus on your breathing in the present moment. There is a surprising amount of power in focusing all your mental energy on the air going in and out of your body. By grounding your mind and body in this way, you are setting yourself up for a productive and focused day.
In summary, here are the five beauty and wellness tips we discussed today that will help you put your best self forward:
- Drink lots of water
- Wear light and natural makeup
- Get enough sleep
- Move your body
We hope these tips have inspired you to find the best version of yourself. Once you find it, you’ll never want to go back.
