Ever wonder why people often say, “blooming ka ah, in love ka ‘no?” It’s because whatever we feel inside, reflects on the outside. We look fresh when we’re happy; the same way we look haggard and dull when we’re stressed. So this begs the question, what are the sure-fire ways to stay beautiful and confident? Allow me ton share some tips. 🙂
1. Don’t just eat less, eat healthy. I’ve recently underwent a lifestyle change thanks to a program I’m currently enrolled to, and this entails a strict monitoring of what I eat. I am only allowed a certain amount of calorie a day so I’m definitely eating less. I cut back on carbs, chips, sweets, fast food and basically anything that isn’t doing my body any favor. But you know what, I still have the energy to go about my daily routines. This goes to show that our body can actually work even with less food as long as they are the right food. Remember that whatever you intake in your body, shows. Fill your body with junk and your health would suffer – this includes dull tired skin among others. Load up on anti-oxidants and vitamin-rich food!
2. Stretch those muscles. Although it’s still important to sweat out the toxins from our body, I’m not telling you to go to the gym everyday. I know based on personal experience that work and social life are already difficult to balance as it is.. what more if I force myself to go to the gym on a daily basis. The goal is not to bulk up so you don’t have to be a gym buddy to accomplish this; just add a few things to your routine like instead of riding a cab for 2-3 blocks going home, why not walk or use the stairs instead of the elevator.
3. Invest in good skincare products. If I learned anything from beauty blogging, it’s that our environment is full of stressors so we need as much help as we can get. I consider a good skincare routine an investment especially with the kind of corporate work that I have. Not only will good skincare products help you get beautiful skin, but it also serves as your prevention measure. Less breakout = more confidence!
4. Comfort is key. It’s easy to be confident when you’re in your element. As long as you are comfortable in every aspect of yourself – your appearance, your clothes, your personality, and just your overall well-being – there’s nothing stopping you from being confident. There’s nothing more uncomfortable than feeling that sudden “surge” especially before your monthly visitor. I don’t know about you but this makes me super anxious and self-conscious. To make sure I’m always ready and comfortable, it’s important that I always have my trusted liner and pad within reach for girl emergencies.
So what’s inside my girl emergency kit, you ask? I have my all-time favorite red lipstick, alcohol, wet wipes, toothbrush, toothpaste, disposable underwear, an overnight pad, eye drops and of course, Carefree panty liner. 😉 I’d like to know what’s in your emergency kit, too.
