Revamp Your Style – 6 Fashion and Beauty Tips for Every Girl

Revamp Your Style – 6 Fashion and Beauty Tips for Every Girl

Being a woman has many challenges, most of which are closely connected to becoming one. A modern woman needs to be well-educated, nurturing and loving. She needs to have a fulfilling career, and she needs to be lovely while doing all of that.

We can do it all, it’s only a matter of priorities. It’s very simple to lose your way among all of these expectations. Learning about yourself and knowing who you are will be most helpful when it comes to establishing your priority list.

Now, I’d like to spend some time talking about femininity, and ways of expressing your inner beauty through your appearance – the way a woman takes care of herself says a lot about her qualities.

1. Skin care

    First of all, I have to say that it’s completely untrue that you need a lot of money to have perfect skin. As a matter of fact, many girls I know simply buy the most generic skin care products that are branded, believing that they have done their jobs.

    Most of those products are quite harsh, and it’s not at all uncommon that your skin reacts negatively, which only leads to additional problems. Start by determining your skin type and select products accordingly based on your results.

    For example, if you have serious problems with acne, you shouldn’t try to solve them by yourself – having a good dermatologist is your solution here. The whole process will be a lot shorter and the results will be a lot better, so don’t hesitate; consult a professional.

    2. Hair Care

      A certain haircut and a particular hair color are just two ways to express your personality. Naturally, not all hairstyles and colors are a perfect match and you should make your selection based on the shape of your face.

      However, it’s not like you shouldn’t have any fun – being in your twenties has a lot of perks, and experimenting with your appearance is one of them. Besides, having crazy haircuts in wild colors is not at all uncommon today, so you won’t run into too many frowns in the business world if you decide to dye your hair green, for example.

      Similar to what I mentioned above in the skincare section, hair care also doesn’t have to be expensive – you just have to be smart about it. For example, getting a dye that’s a bit more expensive and of a higher quality will help you save a lot of money on hair repair products because there will be no need for it. You should find a hair routine that works for you and stick to it.

      3. Hand Care

        A woman’s hands are a reflection of her femininity. As far as I’m concerned – you should take a good look at the women around you and see if I’m right. Somehow, women don’t pay a lot of attention to their hands, although this may be the simplest task in the beauty checklist.

        Hands can look beautiful even if you don’t have those perfect long, thin fingers – shaping your nails properly will do the trick. There’s another reason why women simply give up on their hands; because they don’t believe that they have the skills necessary to get their own nails done, or don’t have enough money to pay someone else to do it for them.

        With just a little bit of practice, you’ll manage to master these skills and do it much sooner than you expect – it’s not rocket science, really, you just need to be patient.

        4. Body Care

          Although there has been a lot of healthy body image talk online recently, a majority of girls are still convinced that they need to be skinny in order to be beautiful. Being skinny implies improper nutrition, and if you don’t eat healthy, you can’t possibly expect your body to feel healthy.

          First of all, you need to start by embracing your figure – not everyone is born with that supermodel body line, and that’s completely OK. Once you make peace with that beautiful figure you have, you can set realistic goals and achieve them in time.

          The fact that your body isn’t within the standards that society is forcing on you doesn’t imply that you should give up on exercising, and there are two good reasons for this:

          • Being an important health factor, exercising is great for preventing various diseases and it will help you fight certain health problems.
          • It truly is an amazing confidence booster; working out will do miracles for your social and love life because it brings a level of personal satisfaction to your game.

          Additionally, your choice of clothes needs to be in accordance with your figure. After determining your body type, you’ll be able to select flattering clothes that you’ll enjoy wearing because they look good and make you feel amazing about yourself – another confidence boost.

          5. Find a Style of Clothing That Will Suit You

            Once you have accepted yourself and determined what your body type is, it is time to find a style of clothing that will suit you and your figure. This isn’t very hard, the first thing you need to do is to take a closer look at your lifestyle and your personality. Are you casual and outdoorsy, or someone just waiting for a chance to wear an evening gown? Some people like a more professional business look. It is important to find a style of clothing that will fit into your lifestyle and complement you. Otherwise, you will only feel uncomfortable, and that will reflect on everything you do.

            Also, always have in mind; the shape of your body, because while leggings are trendy, they only look good on girls with long and thin legs. Make sure you choose the colors that will highlight your natural beauty. For example, if lime green is the “in color” right now, and you look pale and washed out when wearing it, try to find a shade of green that will make you look good, and save that lime color for a pair of shoes or a handbag.

            6. Do The Right Type of Exercise

              Like we mentioned above, exercising is not only an important factor for your overall health, it’s also an amazing confidence booster. However, if you are someone who hasn’t done a lot of exercising in the past, getting in shape can be overwhelming and it’s hard to even get started. Most girls who are looking for the perfect workout plan try one solution after another and end up thinking that nothing really works for them.

              You can easily get stuck in the extremes such as: eating nothing after 6pm., or committing yourself to exercising and eating well, where in the end you become obsessed with it and actually make yourself feel worse, both emotionally and physically.

              You need to find the right balance, a workout that will fit into your everyday life and leave you feeling satisfied. It would be best if you found a trainer who would have answers to all of your questions, and help you create a workout plan that will suit you and your specific needs.

              This is all within the borders of basic care, and none of the tips I mentioned are difficult to achieve. I believe that being a woman is something you learn in time, and things like that shouldn’t be forced. Don’t get frustrated; give yourself enough time so that you can discover who you really are, and how you can manifest your personality through your appearance.

              7 Morning Rituals to Empower Your Day And Change Your Life

              7 Morning Rituals to Empower Your Day And Change Your Life

              Most of your reality is not a given. It is shaped by your expectations, beliefs and thoughts you have formed about it. A big chunk of these beliefs and expectations are encoded into habits you integrate in your daily life.

              Yes, some of these habits are formed unconsciously and can be counter-productive or limiting but conversely, you can consciously form positive habits that will transform and empower your life significantly.

              This is a powerful point of departure that more and more people are becoming aware of. The most common trait of highly successful people is the recognition of the power they have in co-creating their reality through changing the way they think, believe or expect their reality to be.

              One of the most effective ways of changing our belief patterns is through practising and maintaining daily rituals. Ancient traditions had clearly understood the power of rituals in reinforcing habits and changing the way we see and create our reality a long, long time ago.

              Once again, if you look into the life history of any highly successful individual, you will find some form of ritual in their daily routine. Some of these rituals may seem banal or eccentric but don’t be deceived by appearances. Rituals are one of the most effective self-empowering tools freely available at the practitioner’s disposal – that is, you!

              Below are some the easiest yet life-changing morning rituals you can do every day. Of course, you can have your own afternoon or bed-time rituals but morning rituals are extremely effective in empowering your day since they help you charge yourself before it all starts.

              1. Gratitude

              Feeling gratitude and appreciation for those little signs and moments of joy happening in your life is probably one of the most overlooked or underestimated rituals. It is a perfect morning ritual to start your day on a very positive key.

              Advertising

              The real power of gratitude is that it makes you pick out and focus on what is working in your life – what is in tune with your being as a whole. It is selectively positive. It reinforces happiness and positivity by shedding light on those awesome things, small or big, that grace your everyday living.

              Quite often, we just pick out the pain points, the problems, the bottle necks, whatever it is that is not working in our life and causing friction, anxiety and unhappiness. This is like constantly rewriting the script of your life with a negative or tragic overtone. Your subconscious mind follows faithfully that script you write whether it is a negative or positive one.

              So feeling gratitude is undoubtedly an immensely empowering ritual. Start your day by being thankful for those positive things that happened the previous day or throughout the week. It could be something really petty and small. It doesn’t matter. You might be grateful for an unexpected visit from an old friend, a beautiful encounter with a kind stranger, a new opportunity or whatever it is that shines your way. Do it every morning and see what happens during the day.

                2. Writing Down Your Most Important Tasks

                This is a very practical ritual. Start your day by identifying and writing down from one to three of the most important tasks you need to complete during that day. These tasks are ones which support important long term goals that are aligned to your purpose, passion or general direction in life.

                For example, if writing a book or building an online community are important long term goals which are aligned to your personal growth, then an important task for the day might be finishing off a particular page or two of the book or coming up with fresh content ideas for the online community.

                What is important with this ritual is that you identify these tasks and complete them as early in the day as possible. Of course, you will have other tasks apart from the ones you will write down but, these are tasks which can be tackled later or batched up and carried out in one go.

                Advertising

                Writing down your most important tasks in the morning helps you focus your day and life according to what is essential. It helps you prioritize and manage your time better. As a result, you simplify your life by applying your focus and energy on what really counts for your overall life progress.

                3. Affirm Your Goals in Writing or Drawing

                This is similar to the previous idea but different in its application and purpose. Writing down your most important tasks of the day is a way to have a concrete structure of action to follow. Affirming your goals, on the other hand, is a very powerful way of crystallizing your vision and goals in life into your everyday mental space.

                Writing down or doodling your goals on a piece of paper helps you externalize those goals by giving them form. In return, they are reflected back in your subconscious mind and thus, reinforcing them and integrating them more wholly.

                An example of this would be writing down “I am achieving greater success in my career” or “I am becoming healthier and stronger through my exercise.” Notice the present tense being used as a way to tell yourself you are in the process already. Remember the life script we subconsciously follow? You are basically modifying the script to be applied now in the present.

                Drawing or doodling can be equally, or even more, effective  (if you are more of a visual person) as it summarizes a graphical representation of your goals. For example, if your goal is to build a new house or live in another country, you can draw the house or draw things that symbolise the country you want to live in.

                write down goals

                  4. Practice Qi Gong Exercises

                  According to Chinese philosophy, Qi (pronounced ‘Chee’) means the life force or energy inherent in all things;[1] and Qi Gong is the practice to cultivate and circulate that energy in your body. This may sound esoteric or complicated but actually, Qi Gong is really a set of simple exercises aimed at increasing your health and vitality.

                  Advertising

                  There are numerous forms and practices available for free through the online media. As a morning ritual, I recommend following these simple exercises by Qi Gong master Lee Holden:

                  5. Drink Hot Water with Lemon

                  Simply add a slice of lemon in a glass of hot water and drink one every morning. This is a very simple ritual I follow faithfully every morning.

                  Apart from being a good source of vitamin C and a great way of flushing out toxins in the morning, it balances and maintains the PH levels in the body, reduces pain and inflammation in joints and knees and helps nourishing brain and nerve cells. Here are some more benefits of drinking hot water with lemon.

                  6. Rise Earlier

                  The practical advantages of waking up early are obvious.

                  For example, you gain more time for doing exercise such as walking, cycling or Qi Gong as suggested above. You gain more time to be with yourself to reflect, meditate or, more importantly, carry out the other morning rituals.

                  So rising early can be seen as a foundation for all the other morning rituals. Many, like myself, find that they are more productive in the early hours of the day.

                  Also, various studies have shown that there are many other benefits from waking up an hour or two earlier in the morning. Sleeping early and waking up early helps the body attune with the earth’s circadian rhythms thus, promoting more restorative sleep. Other curious results from such studies show, for instance, that early risers tend to be more optimistic and can anticipate and solve problems more efficiently than the norm.[2]

                  7. Listen to Uplifting Music

                  Uplifting music can have a direct impact on our mood, especially in the morning. It charges us emotionally and tunes us into a more positive outlook of the day ahead.

                  Most people wake up to music or listen to music as they commute to work. Very often, however, they tune in to a radio or randomly pick a playlist from their device. Being more selective and conscious of the music you listen to in the morning can have a great impact on your day and life in general.

                  It’s funny how we try to choose music according to our mood. For example if you are feeling down or disappointed by something, you are more prone to listen to music that reflects that mood – for instance blues, sad songs or downtempo music. This has the effect of reinforcing that mood. What you need to do is the exact opposite and retune your mood by listening to music that beats to a different tune than that mood.

                  Try to listen to more uplifting music in the morning even if, or especially if, your mood does not dictate so.
