Ways To Rocket Your Self-Esteem

Appearance is everything nowadays and while it’s a sad thing to say aloud, it’s true. Hair, skin, nails and make-up are all booming parts of the beauty industry and with the huge range of products, it’s no wonder that women everywhere have it instilled that they’re required to use these to be beautiful. Your self-esteem and self-confidence are both important and sometimes you can be knocked by the idea of beauty products being a necessity for a fresh appearance. However, while you don’t necessarily NEED beauty products to be beautiful, a little indulgence never hurt anyone.

Feeling low about your appearance is one of the many characteristics of low self-esteem. It’s for this reason that we do what we can to indulge ourselves, to bolster our moods and feel better. It’s totally normal for you to feel low every now and then. We have a grand spectrum of emotions and these aren’t always the good kind. It’s not about feeling low, it’s how you approach those feelings that will make the difference. If you think that low self-esteem is affecting you, there are steps you can take to change things:
Self-talk: Talking to people is one thing if you need a pick-me-up, but talking to yourself is quite another. The opinion you have of yourself matters greatly and if you aren’t feeling good about how you look or the things you’re doing, it can slowly eat away at you. Talking to yourself in a positive way, to remind yourself of the things that make you amazing can help you slowly begin to believe it. Challenge your own negative thoughts and reverse the process.
Pamper yourself: Treating yourself to new clothes or a trip to the local spa is always a way to elevate your mood. Stress can make our skin dull and our hair lacklustre and if you want to fake it to a fuller, more volumized crowning glory, why not try out tape in hair extensions? You’ll boost your hair and your overall appearance and can even colour change what you have, adding highlights of colour through your hair. Pampering yourself can make you feel special, beautiful and when you admire yourself, others will too.
Exercise: Happy hormones are released when you work out. Feeling that achievement after you’ve completed a hard run or a class, while the adrenaline is still pumping through your body is exciting. It is a natural mood elevator.
Be realistic: You are a human being. Human beings make mistakes and what you should never do is beat yourself up for that. You might get things wrong sometimes; it’s how you handle it that counts.
Always help where you can: Helping other people can make you feel good. Doing good deeds that benefit others brings a feeling of satisfaction and the gratitude you receive in return can elevate you in a big way.

Taking care of yourself comes in many forms, but as long as you are aware of how you are feeling, you won’t be caught in the dark for too long.

Here are just a few areas that you might like to focus on to get the ball rolling the right direction!
Your hairstyle can dramatically impact your overall appearance - it can speak volumes about your personality, influences, and interests if you want it to. Now, many of us stick to very safe styles that blend into the crowd. This is why you see so many people with their natural hair shades, long locks and blunt cuts with centre partings. But why not switch things up a bit. You don’t necessarily have to shave the sides and dye your hair a wild colour. A few subtle changes can make all the difference! Consider a fringe, switching to a natural colour that doesn’t happen to b…
