Have you ever wondered what makes a person beautiful?
It certainly is not entirely the physical appearance. On the contrary, it is the energy that exudes out of them. A certain "je ne sais quoi", which the French are synonymous with. It is their love of beauty, skincare, and self-love. They know how to let their inner beauty shine bright, which is empowering.
What is inner beauty?
People usually associate the subject of inner beauty with one's personality. But, it's more than that; inner beauty encompasses everything from an open mind to a generous heart and a kind soul. It is confidence and how you present yourself authentically to the world.
Without it, outward appearance can be pointless. After all, what makes you look stunning and magnetic is your self-worth and inner beauty.
Why is it important to feel beautiful inside and out?
Feeling beautiful in and out plays a huge role in our daily lives and can impact one's self-worth.
When you feel good about yourself, you're likely to feel confident in the face of challenges. It is empowering, as it allows you to have a positive outlook on your future while keeping anxieties and depression at bay.
You can do this by being mindful, eating healthy, and staying active.
Incorporating a skincare regimen into your everyday routine works wonders as a way to settle your mind and a chance to practice the fine art of self-care.
Whichever way you choose, remember that nurturing your inner beauty opens doors to achieving the best version of yourself.
In what other ways can you develop your inner beauty?
1) Do what makes you feel beautiful.
Since beauty is energy, do what makes you feel beautiful. The more that you do it, the more attractive you will feel and the more you look stunning. It is as simple as that.
Some women feel beautiful using luxurious skincare products - we are both skincare fanatics. Some love doing self-care. Others love hobbies like dancing, yoga, hiking, or painting.
When you feel beautiful, that energy blossoms, giving you the magnetism to attract anything you desire in life.
2) Laugh in the face of hardship.
If you didn't know it yet, laughing activates endorphins, the feel-good hormones responsible for overriding stress and depression.
Laughter can be a tool for empowering yourself when facing hardships in life. After all, when a woman is genuinely confident and beautiful, she can laugh at her circumstances rather than be depressed about them.
A sense of humor is everything! It makes life more fun and helps to cope with difficulties.
3) Have a morning routine that can inspire and motivate you throughout the day.
Since your stress level is at its peak when you wake up, how you start your day may impact how it progresses.
So, before all the hustle and bustle of the day begins, it is essential to give yourself some time to wake up gently.
Great ideas include a few minutes of meditation, gentle yoga, or stretching with beautiful music. Even a cup of tea or coffee while you contemplate how you want your day to progress can make a huge difference in having an awesome day!
4) Stop judging and start appreciating.
Mindfulness and gratefulness can reduce anxiety and depression, contribute to lowering stress levels, and can even help to improve physical health. Being mindful of the beauty around you makes you feel grateful for where you are now in life.
We all know that stress is the number one thing that contributes to premature aging and health issues. It pumps cortisol into our bodies, making us more prone to acne and skin problems. It is also a known fact that chronic stress is linked to increased inflammation in the body.
So, how can you be mindful? Learning a few simple breathwork techniques will come in handy when caught in traffic and other life dilemmas.
Meditation is a great tool as well. All you need is 20 minutes; if possible, even twice a day. Close your eyes, say any mantra that you desire. When your mind starts to wander, bring it back to your mantra. And that's it! Meditation is that simple.
Another great tip for being mindful is a couple of drops of essential oils. Fragrances help to reconnect us back into our heart space. A few of our favorites are ylang-ylang, fragonia, frankincense, rose, neroli, and patchouli. Play around and find your favorite blends.
When you start to shift your outlook on life, you will bring magic and positive flow into your being.
5) Exercise regularly and maintain proper nutrition.
As the adage goes, "You are what you eat." Being conscious of what food you consume every day is also a form of self-care. Exercises help build a strong body and also aids in circulating energies and detoxing daily toxins.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, chronic stagnant qi energies can contribute to illnesses. Regular exercise and a balanced diet consisting of whole foods, therefore, will contribute to that inner glow.
Plus, if you are constantly eating processed foods void of energy, you are not giving your body the necessary nutrients to build and maintain beautiful vibrant skin.
6) Give back.
There is no better feeling than helping others. Not only does it make the inner you glow, but the selfless act of giving back also creates magnetism because you are making a difference and sharing your energy with others. After all, a compassionate person is a beautiful one.
7) Have an evening routine.
It has been proven that an evening self-care routine does lower stress. Journaling, taking a nice bath, yin yoga, meditation, and even pampering yourself with a little facial can have a tremendous effect on your self-worth. When you feel good, you instantly look good!
It also helps to quiet the mind in preparation for a deep relaxing sleep. Good quality sleep has to be the number one key to feeling and looking beautiful.
If you have trouble in that department, we find that taking a magnesium supplement works wonders!
All in all
Finding your inner beauty is a journey of self-discovery. If you want to bring out that magnetism from within, embrace the change and let yourself feel empowered by the transformations that come with it.
Nothing is more rewarding than spiritual work to connect with our authentic self and the universe. After all, it is why we all have come here in the first place.
