“I feel pretty. Oh so pretty,” sang Maria in West Side Story. Now if only every woman is able to mutter those exact lines with such conviction then we’d be living in a much cheerful environment.
A shocking statistic was revealed to us last night at the Dove Legacy event, which claims that only 7% of Filipinas see themselves as beautiful, based on a survey taken in December 2013. Though many standards of beauty have been broken, it still saddens us to know that not everyone can feel comfortable in their own skin.
To lighten the mood, we’re rounding up a list of picker-uppers for days when you feel like you’re in a beauty rut. Hope these confident booster work!
GET A MANICURE AND PEDICURE
Nothing beats the feeling of getting pampered. Your hands and feet are always worked to death so treating them with a trip to the salon is always a good idea when you’re feeling down.
GET A NEW DO
You know how a lot of girls go for the shears after a bad break-up? Yup, shedding the extra weight does help when you need to feel refreshed and recharged. Just don’t do it when you’re mad as hell or else you might not like what you see in the mirror.
SWIPE ON LIPSTICK
As Coco Chanel once said, “If you're sad or heartbroken, make yourself up, dress up, add more lipstick and attack. Men hate women who weep."
TREAT YOURSELF TO A MASSAGE
Let your masseuse pound the bad vibes away and come out feeling rested and confident.
TAKE A TRIP TO THE DERMA
Aside from this being a regular part of your skin care regimen, a quick facial or peel is a fast way to make you feel flawless and beautiful.
Fine, it may not be a beauty thing but it sure does the trick to making you feel better.
