Many young women, in their quest for pageant excellence, convince themselves that in order to achieve this, they need to improve their physical features in various ways. This can range from skincare products to weight-loss supplements to cosmetic procedures. In the past, we’ve all heard the term “going under the knife”, well it’s 2020 and you should know that “the knife” isn’t your only option when it comes to upgrading your confidence! And no, we don’t mean the needle either. Below we explore a few options that can give you the glow-up you never knew you already had.
Makeup can be a winner’s best friend! With the right kind of makeup application and the appropriate look for an occasion, a brush can sculpt and shape your facial features into visual excellence, in ways that might otherwise require lots of money and / or time. Not to mention you can wipe it off at the end of the night, and you’re ready again to create another dynamic look from your perfect blank canvas.
Maybe you have some mini-wrinkling or redness that you’d like to diminish, or maybe you’re obsessed with selfie-smooth skin. Some skincare procedures such as a chemical peel can be a great way to reduce acne or acne scarring, patch up pigmentation problems, and revive rough or sun-damaged skin. These are also non-invasive and healthy ways to yield great results. So you may want to integrate a special facial or chemical peel appointment into your lead up to the pageant.
Finally, remember that the biggest and best upgrade to your looks, can only come from within. If you’re not so happy with what you’re seeing on the outside, instead of focusing solely on changing that one external detail, it may be worth your while to look a bit deeper. Try asking yourself some questions to see what on the inside is the real issue. Sometimes, we all just need a good dose of self-love and self-care to spruce up our selfies!
So now you know that to achieve your desired glow-up in any area you’d like, is just a couple steps away, and you already have all the tools before you to make it happen. While it’s easy to believe in a “standard of beauty”, true winners know that your strength lies in your individuality and your God-given physical features may very well be the signature that seals the deal on your title. So forget the knife, ignore the needle and go fall in love with your mirror! Now go get that GLOW UP going girl!
