We often read or hear advice on how to be glamorous. The internet is full of beauty gurus and influencers who make it seem so effortless. They always seem to look their best, even when sitting at the airport during the 20-hour layover flight to an exotic location. So, it’s understandable that everyone else wants in, as well. If you’re also someone who’s realized that your life would be much better with a bit of glam, don’t worry, since, with the rise of social media popularity, glam has become the new norm. Unfortunately, many designer clothing and luxurious vacations are out of reach for us normal folks, but there is always a way to look great even if you’re earning an average salary. So, here are some tips and tricks that will help you boost your self-love and add some glam to your life:
Have a skincare routine
The best way to make yourself feel good about yourself and boost your self-love is to establish a skincare routine that will surely do wonders for your complexion. There are many ways to make that happen, from slightly complicated Korean skincare routines to regular ones that you’re probably familiar with. Whatever the case, you should always do the research so you’ll find the products that work for your skin type. And what’s even better, there are a lot of affordable brands that offer excellent serums, cleansers, and moisturizers that are really effective and will surely look good on your bathroom shelf.
Don’t neglect your hair
You don’t need wigs, hair extensions, and expensive blow-outs to make your hair look shiny and healthy. As a matter of fact, the best way to keep your hair in a good state is to wash it regularly (preferably with a mild sulfate-free shampoo) and use a conditioner. In case your hair is too brittle or fine, make sure to use special hair treatments that will strengthen your hair. Additionally, you don’t need to book salon appointments, since it’s perfectly possible to do blow-outs by yourself and if not, feel free to ask a friend to do it for you.
Have fun with your besties
If you feel too drained stuck in a rut that consists of going to and from work while falling asleep to binging the latest Netflix show, that means it’s definitely time for a change. So, why not organize a brunch with your besties in a cute restaurant? Or maybe go to a fancy dinner once in a while? You can grab your fave cute dress, don a pair of chandelier earrings and go out with your friends. Whether you opt for a restaurant, bar or a club, chances are you’ll definitely have a blast!
Treat yourself to something nice (and slightly expensive)
Now, that doesn’t mean that you have to max out all your cards, but treating yourself once in a while (let’s say, every few months) can definitely boost your self-confidence. Buying a fancy bag will make you feel better about yourself especially if you have a boring office job. Also, spending some money on a pair of sexy heels will make you feel more feminine and elegant, which is something every girl needs, mainly if she’s been through a rough period in her life, such as a bad break up.
Adding glam to your life doesn’t have to be expensive. Living on a budget has its challenges, but that shouldn’t stop you from practicing some self-love and self-care once in a while. Buying yourself something a bit pricey doesn’t equate irresponsible behavior, but still, make sure to be wise with your spendings, so you’ll be able to maintain your current lifestyle without getting into debt. Finally, keep in mind to be nice and kind to yourself, as that’s the best act of self-love you’ll ever experience.
