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.

              8 Simple Mindfulness Exercises to Bring Peace and Happiness to Your Life

              8 Simple Mindfulness Exercises to Bring Peace and Happiness to Your Life

              In life, we all need to be conscientious of what we are doing. You don’t need to live a life of stress if you don’t want to. You can achieve peace and happiness in life by carefully building mindfulness exercises into your life’s routine.

              Exercising mindfulness isn’t rocket science and as importantly, you can do it. It will, however, take a few tries to get into the groove of things but once you get it, it is like riding a bike, you will never lose it.

              Trust me. It’s in your best interest to learn and put these mindfulness exercises into practice. In this article, I will share with you 8 mindfulness exercises that will help you to boost your energy, vitality and live a more peaceful and happier life.

              Why Is It Hard to Live A Peaceful And Happy Life?

              Our Habitat Has Become Too Technological

              The world has accepted the idea that technology is often the cure for all evil. We have accepted, as a society, that everything technological will make us live a better life without fully investigating the many side effects that modernity brings.

              There are a number of technological side effects that have a tremendous impact on your life that the media rarely tells you about.[1] Some of them include self-harm, economic inequality, having less sex, and even suicide. The global community is becoming less happy because of technology.

              How can anybody live a peaceful and happy life when they are depressed? Technology advancements, ladies and gents, is a major reason for why we are living a poor life because it has infiltrated our lives too much.

              According to my research, Americans spend an average of 8 hours a day looking at the computer screen — The average screen time spent on smartphones alone is about 20 hours per week. That’s a lot! No wonder why living a happy and peaceful life is so difficult these days.

              Too Many People Don’t Want to Unplug

              Americans check their phones an average of 80 times during vacation.[2] Some admit to checking their smartphones 300 times every single day. In countries like Brazil, India and China, the situation is no different.

              The reality is that people are constantly plugged into technological devices and this behavior is literally making people all over the globe fight an inner war with themselves, which consequently makes them very sad. As we know, war is the enemy of peace which won’t make anybody happy.

              Listen carefully:

              We have a global anxiety epidemic because people don’t want to unplug from their smartphones and most people aren’t doing anything to fix it. It is a sad state of affairs but very real. This obsession with technology is turning us into perishable robots who live terrible lives.

              Advertising

              The era of anxiety is here to stay. There is little doubt about it. We can, however, fight back with the best remedy of all — We call it mindfulness!

              Thank God there is an antidote to this whole technological madness. Without further ado, let’s go straight to the mindful exercises.

              8 Mindfulness Exercises to Start Practicing

              There are tons of mindfulness exercises available for you to engage with out there.[3] In the paragraphs below, I will include the best ones I’ve personally tried or have seen my close friends and family members try.

              Are you ready for it? Let’s go!

              1. Pray Daily

              You should pray on a daily basis. Why is that you may ask — Well, because science has told us to do so.

              When people pray, they feel peaceful, almost eliminating anxiety. Worries become secondary, and often gives people energy and hope to cope with the difficulties of life.

              Prayer can make you more confident and focused. Prayer also helps you with self-control, helps to control pain, and can protect you against illnesses and disorders like cancer and high blood pressure. At least, this is what researchers from Harvard Medical School have said.[4]

              Pray. You won’t regret it.[5]

              2. Pay Attention to Your Inner Thoughts

              A lot of people allow themselves to be influenced by their negative thoughts. Be different and resist believing in them. It is a bad habit that can lead to unhappiness.

              By the way, if you do feel this way, chances are high that somebody other than you put these thoughts into your head.

              Here is my secret to combat this cancer — look at things objectively. I bet that if you look at things as they are, you will realize that most if not all of your negative thoughts are only inside of your head.

              Advertising

              If you pay close attention, you will quickly realize that these voices aren’t worth your time. Believe me — Ignoring them and looking at things with objectivity is often the best course of action.

              3. Smile Often

              Smiling will slow down your heart. It will also relax your body because when you smile, your body releases endorphins which in itself has a number of positive benefits for you as a person.

              Smile often! You may want to smile early in the morning, during the day, and late in the evening. It is amazing what happens to you when you decide to smile instead of being grumpy.

              Surrender your problems to a nice smile. You will notice two things. First, most people just don’t which makes them live a miserable life. Second, if you decide to smile often, you will eventually smile unconsciously which is the ideal.

              The moment that you smile unconsciously, you then know that you are truly happy.

              4. Organize Your Working Desk

              A messy desk will make you less productive and can agitate and overstimulate you. You don’t want that.

              When you clear your desk, you engage in deep inner-thinking and your systematic decision making ends up becoming therapeutic.

              Most people realize that they are most creative when their creative space is clean and organized. The former often makes people more aware of what they are doing which lends to less stress and more productivity.

              Organizing your desk will also make you more energetic and focused because order often decreases chaos which is a condition that often slows down daily progress.

              5. Celebrate Your Friend’s Victories

              I love this mindful exercise. One of the best ways to live a happy and peaceful life is to celebrate the victories of others. When you do that, you automatically make your friends in a better mood which makes you in a better mood, as well.

              Happiness is contagious! We might as well celebrate others as much as we can. If you find out that your peer has won an award, celebrate with him! If your friend is the recipient of a local charity award, celebrate with her!

              What is also awesome is that when you celebrate with others, they often celebrate with you in return. This, ladies and gentleman, will make you feel fantastic. You can’t go wrong with this one, period.

              6. Listen to Your Spouse/Partner

              God put someone in your life for a reason. You might as well listen to him or her.

              I listen to my wife everyday. In fact, I often ask the following question to her, “Amanda, what are your thoughts about…” or “What am I missing about…” It is shocking what I hear back from her. Without her having much context and perspective, by the art of observation in my own nonverbal behavior and the behavior of others, she accurately gives me incredible insights which helps me out with living my life to the fullest.

              I’m a firm believer that spouses are supposed to engage in interpersonal communication every day. I most definitely do and will continue doing it. You should do the same.

              7. Give Yourself a Break from Technology

              You can’t be in total equilibrium if your computerized devices control your life. You must get away from technology on a daily basis.[6]

              How do you do that? This is my formula:

              First, take this smartphone control test. It is only ten questions but this test will place you somewhere in the human robot cycle continuum.

              If your score is between 25-30, take a break from the computer (or smartphone, pad, laptop/desktop) every twenty minutes and stop being on a computerized device after 8:00pm.

              If you score between 30-35, still take a break every 20 minutes but stop being on these devices at 5:00pm.

              Advertising

              If you score more than 35, you need to take action immediately.

              Limit computer use as much as possible throughout the day. Give yourself as many breaks from the computer as possible. Are you ready for the challenge?

              8. Go Exercise

              Go exercise at least three times a week. I don’t care if you need to workout early in the morning, late in the evening, on the weekends or during work days. Working out is absolutely imperative for you to live happy and peaceful life.

              The stresses of the modern world are too much for you to neglect this important mindfulness exercise. When you go to the gym, you burn calories, focus on activities one step at a time, your mind relaxes, anxiety decreases, you sweat and often think about topics unrelated to your work place among many other benefits.

              You must exercise at least three hours each week for optimum results. Why? Just take a look at all the benefits of regular exercising:

              12 Benefits of Regular Exercise You Should Know

              The Bottom Line

              It’s in your best interest to learn and put these mindfulness exercises into practice. Now that our habitat has become too technological and many people just don’t want to unplug, engaging in daily prayer, celebrate your friends’ victories, and listening to your spouse are among the best ways to be mindful about what you are doing and how you are living.

              It is possible to live a happy and peaceful life. It only depends on you.

              Go exercise! Take a break from technology and invest in you! Life is too short for distractions.
