If your morning routine involves putting on a mask to hide behind for the rest of the day, it is time that you feel comfortable in your own skin.
Everyone has a right to feel comfortable in their own skin, and present themselves however they wish. Whether you may look towards a breast enhancement or mini face lift to bolster your confidence, what you have to remember is that what you choose to do with your body is no one’s businesses but your own.
At one point or another, everyone has suffered from confidence issues relating to their body – in fact, as many as 97% of women will say something negative about their own body over the course of a day. For the large part, many confidence issues relate to how we believe others see us, rather than us actually being happy with our own body.
There are various methods that someone can take to feel great in their own skin, ranging from plastic surgery to exercise and just something as simple as changing their diet.
The absolute best way to feel good about yourself is through exercise, even if you do not have an end goal. Exercise releases endorphins which lift your mood helping to fight off depression, and make you feel a whole lot better about yourself.
Obviously, the main reason why people exercise is to get or stay, fit. It is important to remember, though, that skinny does not necessarily mean fit – athletes come in all shapes and sizes. If your main target is to be fit and healthy, do not get too hung up on your waistline as your body size will depend on the type of exercise you carry out.
When some hear the words ‘cosmetic surgery’, they immediately think of nose jobs and breast enlargements. Other forms of treatment include brachioplasty (arm lift) which can help to remove excess skin after weight loss.
Dramatic weight loss, especially, can cause overhanging skin that will not go away, despite the amount of exercise that you do. This is because the skin is loose after being stretched out from where pockets of fat used to be.
In the UK, cosmetic surgery is available on the National Health System (NHS), mostly in cases where the treatment is to address a medical issue, or through private healthcare – this is more common in the United States.
Eating a healthy well-balanced diet will also help you feel good in your skin. Not only will eating proper portions of fruit and vegetables each day help to maintain a healthy weight, but your skin will be thankful for it, too.
Eating too many greasy foods can cause spots, while the nutrients found in fruit and vegetables help to give skin a healthy look. Fruit that contains vitamin C, such as pineapples, oranges and tropical fruits, replenish your skin’s stores and defend it against other bacteria.
Broccoli is known as a superfood for many reasons – one of which is because of the presence of glucoraphanin, a compound unique to broccoli and cauliflower. This substance helps to regenerate damaged skin, while vitamins B and E help to give a more youthful look.
It is important to feel comfortable in your own skin and enjoy good self-confidence. By simply looking after your body and addressing issues head on that have a negative effect on your self-esteem, you will find putting that mask away easier than you ever thought possible.
