Who says you have to get your hair and nails and makeup done to have a makeover? You don't need to change your wardrobe or find a new hair color or anything like that. After all, true makeovers start from within; to be truly beautiful outside, you have to be beautiful inside as well. That being said, here are 7 amazing inside-out makeovers!
Groan, I know. But aside of getting healthy and fit, exercise really does make you feel better. I can promise you this, because I've actually kept up with my New Year's resolution to exercise and/or be active every single day. It does make me feel better, and because I feel better, I look better – even when I'm just running around in my pajamas!
2. Eat Well
Eating well leads to feeling well, and feeling well leads to looking great. Now, I'm going to put my own spin on this one: you need to eat foods that are good for you, but tell me the truth. Don't you sometimes feel sumptuous and sensual and sexy when you eat the right kind of chocolate? I rest my case.
3. Give to Others
Being generous with others is a great way to feel good about yourself. Making others feel good, helping them out, being kind, and so on, just makes you feel really great. After all, you're doing someone nice for someone, either because you love them or because they need it.
4. Be Confident
When you're confident, it shows. When you believe in yourself, it puts a bounce in your step, a gleam in your eyes, a smile on your lips. It makes you stand up tall and proud. Believing in yourself, being confident in who you are, how beautiful you are, how great you are, will make other people see that – and they'll feel it, too.
5. Have a Good Attitude
A girl can be the most gorgeous creature in the whole wide world – but if she has a bad attitude, her outward appearance becomes way less beguiling. A good attitude can take you a long way. It makes you feel better, it makes you look better, and it will make the people around you feel better as well.
6. Smile Often
You know what they say. When you smile, the whole world smiles with you. It's corny, maybe, but it's true. A smile can make all the difference, both to you and to the people around you. Besides, doesn't it just make you feel good to smile?
7. Love Yourself
This is important above all others. This is the best makeover you can get. If you love yourself and every little thing about you, who cares what anyone else thinks? In fact, the more you love yourself, the more love you will inspire. You have to know that you're beautiful inside and out, you have to believe in that. It will show through everything you do and say.
Acceptance of and confidence in yourself is crucial to beauty, because beauty really does come from the inside. If you don't believe in yourself, you can't expect anyone else to do it for you. What do you do to show love to yourself?
