Many women find their looks and appearance very important. They always try to look beautiful and to be at their best. Is this vanity or something else? It’s actually something else. Plenty of research has been done on the topic of correlation between beauty and confidence. The results of the studies have confirmed a direct connection between the two. People who think about themselves as attractive and beautiful are more confident. Why is this important? Although it can seem like a total irrelevance, it is of high importance. Confident people are perceived as more charming, and research has found that they also have more chances of finding their dream job and earning more money. So, to improve your chances of finding a perfect job, you need to follow the beauty tips and beauty trends.

The cosmetic industry

As you have probably guessed, the cosmetic industry is one of the biggest industries in the world, with main consumers being women. Women use different beauty tools to enhance and emphasize their beauty. These tools include some cosmetic products such as exfoliators, peels, all kinds of creams and oils, hair masks and conditioners intended to make our skin and hair perfect. There are also other products such as makeup products, foundations, mascaras, lipsticks, brow liners, eyeliners, contour and highlight sets and all types of blushes. These products are used for two reasons: to hide one’s imperfections and as self-expression tools. Another tool women use is nail polish. Using different color nail polishes on some days can be a reflection of our mood. The same goes for the lipstick color. Women who find looking beautiful crucial, usually install a vanity mirror in their bedroom. In that way, they can keep all of their beauty products organised and easily accessible. If using these products will make you feel more beautiful, then, by all means, you should use them. As the relation between beauty and confidence has been found, you won’t just look pretty: it will have a much deeper impact on your personality and it will act as a confidence booster. By doing this, you improve your chances of finding a better and highly paid job.

Hair removal

A trend that has started at the beginning of the 20th century, and which is still popular is hair removal. A new concept of beauty implies no hair. Some women have gone along with this trend, while some, on the other hand, aren’t thrilled with it. Many women feel more comfortable and confident when they remove the hair from their bodies. Others argue that hair is natural and that has some function since it exists. The opinions are divided. These procedures used to be time-consuming, painful and quite expensive. However, these days you can get good deals for removing hair from your whole body by using new laser techniques. It pays off since you never have to worry about that again and it automatically saves you time since you don’t have to do it every day at your home. There are some other ways of removing the hair from your body. They are not as long-lasting as laser hair removal, but they are effective. Different beauty parlours offer all kinds of depilation techniques, from hot and cold wax, sugaring wax and paste. If you’re not a fan of beauty parlours, you can always try some traditional and modern techniques at home, as well. You may need some practice, but it’s not impossible. Since the effect of beauty on success and self-confidence is a real deal, you should think about the current beauty trends concerning hair removal, and go along if you want your chances of advancing to improve.

Plastic surgery

Plastic surgery is quite a recent trend. It encompasses all kinds of procedures people undergo in order to feel better about themselves. People usually want to get rid of some visible scars, injury consequences, huge birthmarks and basically any imperfections they don’t find appealing. After these cosmetic procedures, people feel better in their own body and what’s more, they gain much-needed confidence. Studies have shown that people who have facial blemishes, birthmarks, scars or other disfigurements, tend not to receive high rankings at a job interview. Software used to monitor these kinds of behaviors revealed that the interviewers paid much more attention to these features than to what the interviewee was actually saying. That’s why it’s important to deal with them. People usually react negatively when you tell them that you’re undergoing a plastic surgery procedure in order to get rid of some unwanted feature, but that’s in fact not your caprice, but an investment into your better future, career-wise. Plastic surgery is also used to deal with aging and saggy skin. When they reach a certain age, many people decide to undergo a facelift procedure. It, in turn, solves and reduces the problems of aging, but it also makes people feel pleased and less self-conscious in their own skin. We should do everything we can, in order to feel better about ourselves. There are also many other procedures that can make improvements on our face, skin, body and breast.

Tips and tricks

When you think about people who are beauty icons for you, whether it is your friend, acquaintance or a celebrity, you must have in mind the fact that nobody is perfect. Everybody has some flaws. Imperfections are normal, since this is real life, and there’s no Photoshop in real life. In this modern age, all beauty problems can be solved. If your acne and uneven skin is irritating and affects your confidence negatively, it’s high time you took matters into your own hands and dealt with it. There are some simple tips and tricks you can follow in order to look your best. When it comes to clothes, shop for clothes that complement your body shape. Different kinds of body shapes require different clothing. It’s a good idea to experiment and try out skin and hair products to find the best ones for us. When you find the perfect products, stick with them. Unsure about the lipstick colour that’s complementing your skin tone and hair colour? Try them all. Try out different shades of eyeshadow and go with the ones that make you feel flawless. Makeup does magic: you can easily emphasize your best features and hide those less perfect. A well-balanced diet, regular water intake and physical exercise along with the other tips and tricks create an environment which makes you feel beautiful both on the inside and the outside.

Beauty sleep

The phrase ‘beauty sleep’ exists for a reason. It is the time our body takes a break, relaxes and recharges. It also regenerates all kinds of things. For example, regular sleep adds up to our skin looking healthily and beautifully. Enough sleep ensures your skin holds in water easily. A tip for de-puffing your eyes: sleep with your head elevated on two pillows. Sleep is equally important for our beauty as all other aspects. Nevertheless, many people don’t recognise the importance of a good night’s sleep. It is key to our beauty and to our confidence as well.

As the relation between beauty and confidence is real, you should really try to improve your looks. Starting from your diet, water intake, regular exercise, sound sleep, over some general tips and tricks and cosmetic procedures to hair removal and makeup habits, you can slowly make necessary changes that are sure to boost your confidence. When you aspire confidence, people notice and what’s more, appreciate that.
