2. Get new makeup. Work with a makeup artist who can show you the best colors and application methods to accent your natural beauty. These professionals have many tricks to help you look younger and vibrant.
3. Hire a wardrobe consultant. If you don't know the right colors and styles that suit your skin tone and body type, work with a wardrobe consultant! Some high-end department stores have them on staff or you might ask friends for a referral. It's amazing what the right clothing can do for your confidence.
4. Get in shape. If you've been lasy with your fitness regime, start a new one! Working out on your own or with a trainer helps you feel so much better about yourself. Plus, exercise relieves stress and releases endorphins that help you feel good naturally.
5. Pamper yourself. If you want to be treated right, start by treating yourself well! From massage, to mani-pedis, to Reiki healing, to a bubble baths with candles, do something special for yourself because you deserve it! The very act of self care improves self-esteem.
