With just about everyone being able to convince someone their way works with the internet & social media, it’s even more important to create a regimen that works for you and only you. I came up with 5 ways to start & keep a successful beauty regimen.
#1 Find a Beauty Advisor or Licensed Beauty Pro
If you’re not sure about where to start and been watching YouTube, it’s time that you take a step in the salon or work with someone who can offer you guidance. This will help eliminate mistakes made when trying to DIY or trust a friend. Speak to a professional who can help you find your path & make recommendations for you to get the results you’re looking for. Plus make sure your Pro can help you learn how to DIY at home.
#2 Keep It Simple
Stick to the regimen that works best for you. Remember, there’s always going to be a new trend, product or service someone wants you to buy. It’s okay to try new things, but going too drastic may not be for you at the moment. I’ve had clients come and tell me horror stories just because they tried something new which was trending just to be extremely dissatisfied. I’ve had these experiences personally as well. You don’t have to be boring to keep it simple. Simplicity is usually the best way to create longevity. 🙂
#3 Healthy Eating is Key!
We’ve all heard the saying, “you are what you eat!” This is so true! There are so many foods that can bring you up to speed on your basic beauty needs. Foods like tomatoes, dark greens like kale & spinach, avocados & nuts are just a few ways that helps promote & build beautiful hair, skin & nails. If you aren’t taking advantage of these delicious fruits & veggies, now is the time!
#4 Buy Organic Ingredients & Natural Ingredients
I use organic products even with clients based on their needs. Castor oil, coconut oil, Moroccan oil, raw shea butter, extra virgin olive oil. You name it, I’ve used most of it! It’s best to buy from an organic source. With companies, it’s all about the revenue. I remember looking at big brands and looking at the ingredients (I read all labels). I remember seeing so many chemicals & names I just couldn’t pronounce. Many of these products start their ingredients list with water or alcohol. Stick with products that say 100%, organic, cold-pressed, unrefined, or has a certified organic seal. Your body will thank you.
#5 Don’t Compare Your Journey To Others
In the beauty business, there’s always someone who wants you to look like someone else. Or they continuously compare their beauty journey to others. Remember, we all are unique in our own way. As long as we’re taking the time to do what’s right to make our own hair, skin, and nails glow, we’re on the right path. It’s what makes us different and irresistible. Just think about it. If we all looked the same that would be extremely boring! Embrace your hair textures, nail beds & lips. If you’re unhappy with cellulite, acne or uneven skin tones, stubborn hair growth, breakage weak nails, etc. work on them with natural remedies. Good old Mother Nature will do the trick!
