With a generation obsessed with self-care, it’s safe to say that the beauty industry is growing at an untouchable rate each year. From diet supplements, detox teas, at-home laser treatments, and push-up pads for your butt (yes, you heard us right), the list seems endless when it comes to enhancing one’s appearance. Now, many young girls go through drastic measures to look like their “role models” on social media. And though we understand the social pressures and standards many people face, we wanted to remind our beauties that you CAN achieve your ultimate beauty goals by taking a more organic approach.
An organic approach consists of having a balanced lifestyle in the old fashion way. From dedicating some time to exercise every day to switching out your daily skincare products towards plant-based skincare lines like Eminence Organic Skincare, we wanted to remind our beauties that you don’t always have to take extreme measures to look and feel beautiful. Here are simple changes you can make in your life to feel positive, emotionally, mentally and physically about yourself.
Switch to Natural Skincare Products
We all have a basic understanding that toxins aren’t good for us. So why are we so complacent when it comes to our skincare products? While a person’s genetics and overall lifestyle play a big roll in how your skin reacts to different skincare products, many people suffer from acne, eczema, inflammation, and other skin conditions due to the chemically harsh ingredients in their skincare products. That’s why we recommend natural skincare brands like Eminence Organics Skincare, Sukin, and The Honest Company by Jessica Alba (just to name a few). These brands have formulated a line of skincare products that’s free from paraben, toxins, and other harsh chemicals. Not to mention, they are also cruelty-free, so you can enjoy using your products without feeling guilty!
No matter what your age, sex, or physical ability, everyone can benefit from regular exercise. If you want to improve your overall health and reduce the risk of developing unwanted diseases while boosting your energy levels, adding regular exercise to your daily routine is the key. For those worried about their physical appearance, regular exercise can help maintain a healthy weight. A minimum of 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity can make a huge difference. Regular exercise has also been proven to help with depression. It can help block out negative thoughts and elevate your mood for the better. So get moving and sweat it out!
Maintain a Healthy Diet
Maintaining a healthy diet is not as easy as it seems, especially when we live in a world filled with processed goods, junk food, and unlimited sugar that come in several different forms. However, you can still make an effort to include a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, good fats, lean protein, and other ingredients to improve your daily diet. Maintaining a healthy diet can aid in weight loss, strong bones and teeth, elevate one’s mood, improve memory, and so much more.
Get Proper Beauty Sleep
Beauty sleep is more important to your health than you think. It’s considered to be as important as eating healthy and exercising daily. The average adult should at least get 7-9 hours of sleep each night to maintain a healthy rhythm. Lack of sleep can have a negative impact to your overall well being. It can make you gain weight, look older, become more forgetful, and have a libido of a 90 year old!
Encourage Yourself (and Others)
We saved the best for last as we believe encouraging yourself and others is a crucial element to making anyone look and feel beautiful. Whether you give yourself a simple pat on the shoulders, write down all your positive traits in your journal, or treat yourself to something special at The Wax Shop, always remember beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.
