We’re all self-conscious about certain things. There’s nothing wrong with feeling this way, it’s a very natural way to feel. If you feel this way because you just don’t like a certain aspect of yourself and will feel more confident and beautiful if you can address it, then that’s fine.
Dealing with self-confidence issues should always be focused on making yourself happy, not anyone else. Bearing that in mind, I’ve thought about some of the most common imperfections we all get a bit self-conscious about. These things may seem small, but they can hold a heavy weight on our mind, and we want to change them, so we feel better about ourselves. Check them out down below, and you’ll also be treated to some advice on fixing these little imperfections.
Everyone is worried about getting cellulite, and those that have it become very self-conscious. Especially around this time of year when it’s bikini season, and you’ll expose more of your skin. Cellulite is quite a complex condition so we won’t get into the actual science of what it is. Visually speaking, it’s when you get little bumps or dimples on your skin, normally around your upper thigh/bum region. In the simplest description possible, it’s to do with collagen on your skin and how it changes as you age. Most people get cellulite at some point, but you can get it when you’re young.
It’s something everyone gets down about as it can make your legs look worse and you just don’t feel comfortable wearing a bikini or exposing the skin. Nevertheless, there are things you can do to address this tiny imperfection. If you look online, you’re bound to find countless articles detailing the 10 Best Cellulite Creams money can buy. Using cream can help reduce the appearance of cellulite, and it’s probably the best non-surgical treatment there is. Also, working out and toning up your leg muscles can really help as well.
Bags Under Eyes
It’s a well-known fact that most of us don’t get enough sleep. We get caught up in watching Netflix or going out, and it ends with us rarely achieving the 8 hours a night we’re supposed to get every day…oops. Aside from making us super tired, this also creates one of the worst things ever; bags under the eyes. There are few things worse than waking up and being greeted with panda eyes when you look in the mirror. Or, having a photo taken and just seeing these horrible bags all the time. It’s really demoralizing and can make us feel very bad about the way we look.
The obvious solution is to address the cause of the issue. For most people, this means getting more sleep! But, you can also find other ideas to reduce the appearance of bags as well. Many people use cold tea bags and place them on their eyes for a few minutes each day. You could also try cucumber slices or eye gels too. These bags are also a side effect of having a blocked nose or allergies so you may want to see if that’s the case for you. If it is, then some allergy meds will help you out. Of course, you can always use makeup to cover the bags until they go away too.
It feels like there’s been a trend in the last few years that’s made eyebrows a really big thing. Nowadays, everyone is so concerned with how their brows look, and it leads to self-confidence issues. Mainly, we all want nice eyebrows that are well-shaped and clear for all to see. So, if we’ve got very light eyebrows or ones in an odd shape, it really changes the way we look. There are loads of people that spend a good hour doing their brows every morning as they’re so self-conscious about how they look.
Again, there are easy ways around this. Of course, if you don’t have very clear eyebrows, there’s no way to grow thicker and darker hair there. Instead, you can get things that are almost like permanent eyebrow tattoos. They look like your eyebrows when you’ve done them yourself using a kit, but they stay like that for a long time. Also, they’re natural and just make it look like you actually have dark eyebrows.
All three of these little imperfections may seem a bit silly when you say them out loud. But, they do play on our mind and make us feel bad about the way we look. As such, it makes sense to address them and boost our confidence, so we feel great about ourselves!
