It’s true you feel better about you when you look good. Most people have at least one thing they would change regarding their appearance given the chance and the money in their budget to do it. Some of the common items that people want to change regarding their appearance are their nose, their weight, their build, their hair and their weight. Fortunately, if you are in pursuit of any of these things it is possible.
Changing your hair/hairstyle
If you have had the same hairstyle for many years and no longer enjoy your reflection in the mirror, a non-invasive change such as a new hairstyle, highlights, a full coloring or hair extensions can give you a new look that builds self-confidence quickly. Today you can show up for work one week with a short bob and the next with luscious long locks. Extensions work for many ethnic groups as do additions such as an Indian curly hair weave. It doesn’t matter what skin color you have, you can color your hair and add length, curls or body within a single day.
If would seem that some people defy the laws of physics and seem to hang onto their good looks long after many others of the same age lose theirs. That’s because only a select few put in the proper amount of time in to keep it supple and firm. Skin naturally falls, dries and wrinkles as you age. The key is to start a regime early in life like your 20s helps to slow the effects. There are many factors that contribute to the condition of your skin including a healthy diet, exercise, scrubs, and lotions. Leave any out and your skin will show signs of aging. Fear not, you can slow the process and actually begin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and sagging skin. Just as when you were a child the basic food groups are essential. A diet consisting of vitamins and minerals and minus the fat and sugars keeps your body healthy on the inside and the outside. Exercise is also a necessary component in the constant fight for firm skin. As you grow older this task becomes more difficult, but not impossible. Using cleansers that scrub away dirt and grime without drying the skin out is also a must. The last ingredient is a good lotion that hydrates the skin going well below the surface to offer long-lasting protection from the elements.
Making Changes to Your Body
Making a permanent change is not a decision you should make on impulse. However, if you have weighed the pros and the cons and you still want to make the change, go for it. Today, there are many ways to achieve what you call the perfect you. If you have no fears about going under the knife you can change your nose, your breasts, reduce extra weight off of your buttocks, hips, and thighs or get a facelift with plastic surgery. If you prefer not to go under the knife and can’t afford several weeks of downtime, you can opt to make body changes with laser surgery, cool sculpting or body peels.
Workout to Achieve Your Ideal Weight
If you are overweight, the best way to lose it is to combine a healthy diet with a vigorous workout. You need both in order to keep your body firm as the weight drops off. Otherwise, you’ll have sagging folds that won’t go away without a surgical or non-surgical procedure. While you won’t lose the weight in a single day, you will see a noticeable improvement in your appearance within the first week. Once you get into a routine with both, you will notice that your pants zip easier and look better on you. The important thing to remember is to create realistic, achievable goals. This way you won’t feel disappointed and continue on until you reach the desired weight.
Not many people come into the world blessed with the perfect face and body. For most, it takes a lot of work to feel their best. The good news is that there are both surgical and non-surgical approaches you can take to change your look and retain your self-confidence.
