Build your Confidence!

Confidence is what makes us feel good about ourselves and allows us to express ourselves in a world in which rejection and negativity are commonplace. As I was growing up, I had a difficult time understanding my own identity and often found myself feeling depressed, miserable and doubtful. In order to feel confident in my own skin and build a positive self-concept, I made several changes in my life.

1) Surround yourself with positive people
Surrounding yourself with positive people is important because they encourage you to form positive thoughts in your life. Negative people will only try to bring you down and point out your flaws and imperfections. When it comes to friendships, think about quality of friends over quantity of friends. And, remember, positive  relationships lead to a positive life.

2) Remind yourself of your worth
Everyday, remind yourself that you are worth it! Look in the mirror every morning and talk to yourself ( this is normal!) and re-evaluate your life, values and beliefs. Ask yourself what changes you have to make today in order to be a better person. On days I feel down and upset,  I post a little sticky note on my dresser to remind myself of my worth and every morning when I get dressed, I look at those sticky notes and  instantly my mood lifts up.



3) Be Nice/Compliment Others
Being nice to others goes a long way. Even if someone is being rude , be nice anyway! Maintaining a positive attitude makes you have positive thoughts and feel positive about life. A negative attitude only makes you feel worse about yourself and does not help improve your self esteem and confidence. Compliment others and let them know they're beautiful. By doing this, you're not only making them feel good and happy, but also yourself.

WAYS TO PREVENT DRY SKIN IN THE WINTER

Ways to Prevent Dry Skin in The Winter........



I know many of us have to constantly moisturize our skin during the winter because it just keeps getting really dry. My skin, for instance, becomes extremely dry if I don't frequently apply moisturizer. I have recently tried some things which have helped me prevent dry skin and get rid of all the dead skins, making my skin look shiny, smooth and soft. The following are some of the tips: 

1) Almond Oil
Almond Oil is so good for your skin and makes your skin look youthful and soft. Your body requires Vitamin E to keep your skin looking healthy and beautiful. Almond oil is packed with Vitamin E which is why it helps prevent dry skin by nourishing your skin. Start off by cleaning your face with a cotton pad dipped in almond oil and you will see all the dead skin come off on to the pad. After you're done cleaning your face, just pat some almond oil on your face and lips with a new cotton pad and go to bed. Do this every night before bed and you will see that your skin looks more shiny, soft and smooth. 


2) Honey 
Honey works as a great exfoliating and cleansing system for your skin. Applying honey to your skin not only prevents dry skin but it also makes your skin look radiant and smooth. Apply honey to your face and keep it on for 10-15 minutes and wash it off with warm water and pad your face with a towel. Do this once daily and you will see the results.
