What Makes A Person Beautiful?

Beautiful people take care of themselves! When you take care of yourself, you’ll be happier, more confident and you’ll feel good about yourself.

Here are 31 tips that will have you feeling and looking great!

How To Be Pretty

De-Stress. Beautiful people know how to manage stress! Stress wrecks havok on your appearance.

Your skin reacts to stress with inflammation, decreased blood flow, allergic reactions such as hives, acne, rosacea and weight gain.

Your skin also becomes dry and thin, and more prone to damage. Source.

Meditation and relaxation can help calm your mind and body. If you suffer from psoriasis or rosacea, you know the power stress has over your skin condition- causing flare ups… and more stress:( Beautiful People don’t let the little things get to them! I know, easier said than done!

These Essential oils help me de-stress!

Try this special manifestation meditation.

Get adequate sleep. Beautiful people make sleep a priority! You can’t feel gorgeous when you’re exhausted! This is so important when it comes to your overall health and well-being.

Here are some good sleep tips to help you get a good night’s sleep, naturally!

It’s hard to feel beautiful with dark circles and blood shot eyes. Poor sleep quality can lead to increased stress, breakouts, anxiety and even depression. It also puts you in a bad mood:(

Read positive affirmations. Change how you see yourself using the power of positive self-talk.

Hydrate. Beautiful people hydrate! If you’re thirsty, you’re probably already dehydrated. Make sure you carry a bottle of water around to sip on to stay hydrated throughout the day. Avoid caffeine and sugary drinks.

Hydrated skin is plump, glowing and gorgeous! You should aim for 8 cups a day, and no coffee does not count– sorry:(

Take care of your body. Beautiful people take care of their body! Ten minutes of exercise a day is better than none!

If you don’t have time to go to the gym, just set aside 10 minutes a day to do a simple stretch, or go for a walk around the block. Get your body moving!

Eat healthy, vibrant foods. A top tip for how to be pretty- You are what you eat!

Eat high vibration foods to raise your body’s energy and feel better!

Improve your gut health. Your gut is the centre of your body and when it’s off balance, so is everything else- including your hair, skin, nails and mind! If you have too much bad bacteria you’ll suffer from acne, inflammation, low energy and other problems.

Try probiotics to boost gut health!

Give a compliment. Beautiful people make other’s feel good! TRY IT!

When you compliment someone else, somehow you instantly feel better about yourself! Helping others is a beautiful thing! It doesn’t have to be a compliment. Just doing something nice for someone will instantly help you glow up!! You’ll be shining with positive energy!

Take care of your skin. Beautiful people take care of their skin. When it comes to beauty products – I make my skin, my top priority before fashion, makeup or hair care etc. I consider it an investment because I’m going to be in it for the rest of my life and great skin, unlike shoes, never goes out of style.

Try these DIY Beauty Hacks you can make at home!

Do an oatmeal mask. Oatmeal is soothing and mildly exfoliating.

Deep-clean. Make sure you are giving your skin a good, deep-down clean. This Antimicrobial Facial Cleansing Brush System is comparable to the much pricier Clarisonic, giving you the deepest-down clean revealing baby smooth skin.

Use rosewater. Rosewater is a natural, refreshing toner.

Protect your skin from the sun. Avoid the sun and wear sun protection.

Switch to natural skincare. Chemicals wreck havoc on your natural skin. Nourish your skin with natural ingredients!

Facial massage. I highly recommend that everyone try Ayurvedic skin care! It’s a gentle, natural approach to skin care for all skin types! I massage my face daily for a few minutes with the oils and the Kansa wand and have noticed a dramatic improvement in my skin!

How To Massage Your Face

Simply warm up a few drops in your palm and apply a dab to your forehead, cheeks, chin and then neck. I gently massage the oil in circular motions starting with the centre of the forehead working your way around to the temples, then cheeks, the sides of the nose, and around your mouth, finishing with your chin and neck! It usually takes about two minutes tops to do a good, thorough face massage.

Benefits Of A Face Massage:

  • Improved blood flow
  • Increased circulation
  • Increased collagen production
  • Improved elasticity
  • Instant glow
  • Improves product absorption

Boost your confidence. Beautiful people are comfortable with themselves. To be more confident, wear what makes you happy, and don’t be afraid to try new things and find your personal style.

Confidence is not just something you feel inside, it shows on the outside! What makes you unique is what makes you beautiful! Own it! Remind yourself daily that you are magical and beautiful!

Take care of your hair. Castor oil can help mend dry ends.

Try scalp massage. Scalp massage increases blood flow, gets rid of dandruff and encourages new hair growth. Try this DIY scalp massage.

Avoid hair care products with chemicals.

Add essential oils to your hair care routine. Try rosemary, sandalwood and lavender!

Take care of your eyes. Clear, healthy eyes, are beautiful eyes.

Use gentle, natural makeup removers like coconut oil!

Avoid chemical eye drops!

Instead of eye drops, try waking your eyes up with a splash of cold water in the morning.

De-puff your eyes with cold cucumber slices.

Take care of your smile. Beautiful people smile! You’ll instantly look prettier with a smile! And if you take proper care of your teeth, even better! Pearly whites will definitely make you look healthy and vibrant!

Try oil pulling. Oil pulling involves using coconut oil to deep clean your mouth.

Use baking Soda to whiten your teeth.

Learn to love yourself. I saved the best tip for last. If you don’t feel pretty, you obviously aren’t fully loving YOU! By developing a greater self-love, you’ll soon start to feel so much better about yourself and embrace all of the amazing qualities you have, instead of focusing on what you think you lack!

These self-love affirmations can help you love yourself!

What makes you feel beautiful? When do you feel your best? Want to know how to be pretty? For me- it’s when I get a good night’s sleep and wake up on the right side of the bed (I’m not a morning person). And when my skin is clear and the sun is shining and I’ve just had a cup of coffee, I feel my best:)

  1. Czjai Reyes-Ocampo says:

    Yes to double cleansing and wearing sunscreen! I hardly wear makeup these days because it’s summer, but I never leave the house without sunscreen on. 🙂

    1. Best thing u can do for your skin! When we are older, we will be so glad we did:)

  2. You give some great advice here. Looking healthy does make a person feel good and if you look healthy you probably feel healthy too!

    1. Yep! I see so many people just try and cover up with tons of makeup but forget to take care of themselves as a whole! And it shows!

  3. Yes, it definitely makes me happier because I feel like I’m taking good care of myself and self love is most important!

  4. Yes to sunscreen for sure – not enough people are using it and are ruining their skin! Not to mention the risks of skin cancer!

  5. I’ve heard quite a bit about double cleansing and it makes so much sense that it would make your skin healthier, brighter and cleaner. Sunscreen is 100% a must too!

  6. Kate Murray says:

    Definitely feel best when I get a good night sleep as well! Oh, and when my hair looks great and the kids are being kind to one another too! 🙂

    1. Ya, you know those rare days! Lol

  7. Great advices! I have never heard about double cleansing. I am excited to try it as soon as possible!

    1. What have you got to lose?! I think you’ll love it!

  8. I am a minimalist when it comes to my skin/beauty regime. My skin doesn’t like much of anything so I use Cetaphil and I am done!

  9. Very interesting thought processes here! I’ve found as I’ve gotten older that less is more. But I also think you need to just do what makes you feel awesome.

  10. When we take care of ourselves, we will look healthier and feel more beautiful. Being beautiful is not superficial, its all about self love and self care.

  11. Elizabeth O says:

    Whenever I get enough sleep I feel very refreshed. Feeling beautiful I believe starts with inner peace. Everything else follows.

  12. Kiwi says:

    Healthy beauty tips can make you happier. I think manufactured beauty can make you obsess over and over if you are good enough no matter how hard you try.

  13. banx63 says:

    Exercise and water are the secret weapons. That and having loads of meat and dairy free days. This makes me feel much better….

  14. Feeling pretty can help you feel less insecure and make you happier but it’s definitely not the key to happiness 🙂

  15. Thanks for sharing these nice tips on self care and how it can help to enhance your beauty. Maintaining a regular routine of healthy habits definitely helps in a glowing body, mind and skin.

  16. I have started focusing more on my skin health and it has made such a difference. I wish I would have started sooner.

    1. It’s never too late!!

  17. I feel my best when I’ve been to the salon and had my hair, nails, and waxing done. Something about all the pampering you get just makes me feel confident and pretty.

  18. I love your advice! People don’t usually think of beauty being healthy but it can definitely be healthy for the mind! Makeup is a form of creativity and I love how you expressed that!

    1. Thank you 🙏 it’s so true that beauty comes from within! And when you’re healthy, you Glow! Glow girl, Glow!

  19. We definitely see a correlation between self care and confidence. Confidence makes us happy!

  20. Rosey A says:

    I didn’t know retin made your skin more susceptible to the sun. That’s good to know!

  21. Surekha Busa says:

    Oh I agree, it’s really connected, cuz whenever I see myself in the mirror, and then I get satisfied with my looks that makes me happy.. ☺️

  22. Lyosha Varezhkina says:

    awesome advise! i also believe mental shows on a face – so happy and healthy person will look absolutely beautiful to me.

  23. themimiodyssey says:

    Absolutely true! Our outer appearance may not be everything, but our mental and emotional state are definitely reflected on the way we look. Great post!

    1. What does ‘double cleansing’ mean?

      1. Double cleansing involves using an oil based cleanser first to pull out dirt and oil from your pores and then wash that off and follow up with a gentle rice wash exfoliant. Really good cleansing method! Check out Amazon for some great oils and rice washes to get started!

  24. Thanks for sharing some amazing advice. Your blog is enriching. It just enhances my knowledge of the topic.

  25. It’s all about creating the mind set that you want to be in. Think it is true and it shall be!

  26. jeannette9712gmailcom says:

    You are right health and beauty are connected. I know because when I am thin and working out I feel beautiful. When I am how I am now, I feel disgusting.

  27. Rosey A says:

    The double cleaning method is one I’ve done from time to time. I could be more consistent with it. I feel my best when I know my skin is at its cleanest though.

  28. Hannah Marie says:

    I think it varies differently depending on one’s perception about what beauty really is. I agree with all the things that you said here. Nevertheless, no matter how much fancy clothes and make up you wear if you are not confident, it may be just a loss.

  29. I do need to excercise more. I know it makes me feel better and makes my skin look better. I need more time in the day!!!

  30. Water, lot of water… that’s my secret. Also a healthy mind. You have to feel great on the inside.

  31. Alexandra Cook says:

    I would definitely say it does. If it helps your self confidence, anything can be good for you.

  32. I feel like having a healthy mind is really important. Beauty is after all in the eye of the beholder!

  33. swathiiyer says:

    I don’t thin so, I think good mind is best thing to make us happier.

  34. Beauty makes me more than happy and thus I have a simple doable routine to keep my skin healthy and silky soft.

  35. This is also true! When I take care of myself I typically feel better!

  36. This is an interesting look into the power beauty has over our emotions. I think it has its perks to look and feel good.

    1. You are so pretty! Thanks for your sweet comment 💕

  37. I can totally feel a difference when I take care of myself verses when I am feeling lazy. I also really need to buy new sunscreen! I need to remember to put it on my face every day. Great read Stephanie.

    1. Sunscreen is the best anti-aging product you can buy! Never skip it:) thank you 🙏

  38. Great article! I wanted to add that I notice I look and feel more beautiful if I don’t consume alcohol. That bloated, pale, red-faced, clammy look doesn’t do me any favors! 🙂

    1. So true!! Alcohol makes me look and feel like crap! Beauty comes from within and if you treat your body right, it’ll show 🙂
      Thanks for reading! And I appreciate you taking the time to comment:)
