In the middle of a worldwide pandemic how we look may not be at the topmost of our minds. However, as things start to slowly open up it may be time to emerge from our forced hibernation and face the world again. This brings up another issue; for some finances may be tight due to a loss of income, while for others access to beauty parlours or barbers and hairdressers may still be limited.
With that in mind I’ve come up with a list of seven easy tips you can use to achieve a near enough complete makeover. All of them can be reasonably achieved at home and at an affordable price, check them out below:
- Change Your Hairstyle
One of the easiest ways to subtly or dramatically change your look is by going for a different hairstyle. Whether its letting your hair grow out, colouring, or cutting it short, a change of hairstyle can bring about big changes to how you look and feel. So while it may not be easy to get an appointment at the hairstylist, - at least there’s time to discover a fresh new look.
- Pay More Attention to Your Skin
Another area where almost immediate and visible results can be seen is skincare. Investing time into your skincare can bring about makeover results thanks to the range of beauty products now available and the research that goes into creating them. Determining your skin type and discovering the products that work best for you will give you a naturally beautiful canvas to work with should you wish to up your make-up game.
- Whiten Your Teeth At Home
Smiles are an important part of our confidence and how we project ourselves to others. So having pearly white teeth can actually be a confidence booster. This is a task that can be done at home with professional like results. Products such as crest teeth whitening strips are a great way to makeover your look while also improving your dental health. With some treatments taking three weeks, why not use your time at home to achieve an A-list smile and a confidence boost to boot.
- Exercise More
We all know that exercise is good for you and working out even at home can bring about great results to how we look and feel. Whether you prefer going out for a run or to stay in and work out at home, any exercise is good for you. Start in manageable chunks and increase your distances or reps gradually and before you know it you’ll be fitter and healthier too.
- Revamp Your Wardrobe
Another great use of the time we suddenly have on our hands is to declutter and revamp our wardrobes. This could be getting rid of rarely used clothes in the mould of Marie Kondo, or trying out different outfit combinations. In the end you’ll either have more space for new clothes, or a fresh new look from a revamped wardrobe.
Lastly, accessories. In our quest for an easy and achievable makeover one of the simplest ways to do so is to use accessories. Some accessories never go out of style and can be used to put the finishing touch to outfits, or as a practical but aesthetic tool. From handbags to necklaces, rings or hairpieces, these simple items can also help to dramatically change your look.
