You probably know how to maintain your beauty- a healthy diet, handling your skin gently, drinking lots of water, using the right products, and using makeup to look glam.
How about inner beauty?
However, no matter how well you take care of yourself, it's hard to look beautiful if you're scowling. It might sound cliche, but it's true: real beauty comes from within.
So how do we cultivate this "inner beauty"? It's tricky because this kind is hard to quantify and assess since it's unseen. Unfortunately, because of this, some people don't take as much care to cultivate their inner beauty as they do their outer beauty.
Don't be ugly on the inside
Tearing other people (and yourself) down washes away your beauty. Constantly criticizing yourself for not following your diet like you think you should, for not looking perfect, or not being where you'd like to be at this season in your life will wear you down. With time, this will reflect on your appearance.
Conversely, if you're content with yourself, you will glow.
Affirmations are one of the easiest ways to boost your inner beauty. When you get up in the morning, go to the mirror, look yourself in the eye, and tell yourself that you are loved. It might seem strange at first since you might be used to self-criticism, but practicing this daily will boost your confidence.
If you don't know where to start regarding affirmations, we have some examples for you below.
Speak any of the following affirmations out loud to yourself, or write them down and read them at the start of each day.
"When I believe in myself, others do too.
Loving myself heals my life. I nourish my mind, body, and spirit.
I create health by expressing love, compassion, and understanding.
My body has its wisdom, and I trust it completely.
Today I choose to honor my strength, beauty, and uniqueness."
As you get used to affirmations, you'll notice yourself feeling happier, more content, and looking more beautiful outwardly too.
