Y’all, summer is finally here! I can’t wait to tan in my backyard and enjoy refreshing cocktails at night. Yet, as pumped as I am about the sunshine, I’ve been stuck in a rut lately. All the craziness in the world right now has a profound effect on my mood and self-confidence. So, I decided to make a few lifestyle changes to lift my spirits. Here are my three easy ways to improve your beauty routine this summer that’ll turn that frown upside down.
Buy High-Quality Products
Gals, you should spend a little extra money on your hair and makeup products. I promise it’ll be worth the investment. For starters, top-of-the-line items are better for your skin. The last thing you want is to develop a rash on your face because your foundation contains hazardous products. Research the ingredients before you buy anything, y’all. Higher-quality products will look better, too. One time, I tried to save a little cash on a can of hair spray. I’m telling y’all, my hairdo fell flat the minute I walked outside. It can’t hurt to splurge a little. You’ll look and feel so much better.
Lighting Is Key
I can’t overstate the importance of appropriate bathroom lighting. I’m the furthest thing from a morning person. I’m usually half-asleep while I’m applying all my makeup. Since I’m so drowsy, I need light shining in my face to make sure I don’t look a mess. A few months ago, I woke up completely exhausted. I kept the lights down to give my eyes a little extra rest. I headed out to brunch with my girlfriends, and they pulled me into the bathroom the minute I got there. I looked ridiculous! My foundation was uneven and my eyeshadow was smeared. I went out and bought top-of-the-line light fixtures that evening.
It’s so hard to avoid eating junk food when I’m home all day. I’ve been so bored that I find myself wandering to the kitchen when I’m not even hungry. A few weeks ago, I stopped doing this. Instead, I grabbed my mask and went for a walk outside. Let me tell y’all—I felt like a brand-new person when I got home. I also threw out most of my junk food and started to be more mindful of what I was eating. I promise you, making dietary changes will make you look and feel like a new person. Best of all, a healthy diet is one of the best ways to improve your skin. Sticking to fruits and veggies will help your skin look fresh and less dull—after all, the best beauty routine is a well-balanced diet.
Follow these three easy ways to improve your beauty routine to get ready for the summer. I know there’s so much uncertainty in the air right now. It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed. That’s why it’s essential to take care of yourself in any way that you need. Do some yoga, unplug from social media, and get as much sun as possible. You’ll feel more confident and well-rounded if you put in a little effort into your appearance. Your gals will be definitely be asking what changes you made that turned your entire mood around.
