How to Feel Beautiful Without Makeup

1. Sit Up Tall Keeping your shoulders back and spine straight makes you look taller and slimmer as well as self-confident. According to Kelly McGonigal, PhD, a health psychologist at Stanford University, "Your brain is constantly checking in with the rest of your body to find out how you're feeling. When your posture is erect, the message it gets is: I feel good about myself. " 2. Don't Judge Yourself Don't make any judgments when you look in the mirror. You have the power to see a scar, blemish, or "imperfection" as a flaw or as something that is simply a part of you. Try to look at yourself the way you would those of your best friend—with appreciation and acceptance, not criticism. 3. Find Something You Love About Yourself When you look in the mirror, what is the first thing you look at? Instead of zoning in on your least favorite feature, turn your gaze on one that you like. When your eyes take in something that pleases you, your entire mood will be lifted. 4. SMILE! A smile has the ability to lift the muscles around the eyes and lips, for a more youthful appearance, AND it can generate a feel-good ripple effect: Your brain gets a serious mood boost, and then you'll have the confidence boost from people smiling back at you. Try it right now :) 5. Take a Deep Breath Shallow breathing makes your face, throat, and even shoulders really tense. When you take deep, slow breaths, you will look and feel more at ease. Step back from any stress or unhappiness you're feeling and just take a nice, deep breath. 6. Appreciate Compliments I am the worst at receiving compliments. Seriously. But I'm learning to stop deflecting any praise about my appearance. Simply saying "thank you" when someone compliments me actually makes me feel much better than denying that my hair looks good or something. Accepting the compliment automatically boosts your mood. 7. Give Yourself a Reality Check! Unless you live under a rock (and if you're reading this, you probably don't), you're constantly surrounded by images of thin women with perfect hair and skin who look like they wake up that way. It's human nature to compare yourself —but if you're not a supermodel, you'll come up short. When you catch yourself comparing, remember that these pictures are incredibly unrealistic. You are beautiful, and if you tell yourself that a few times a day, you'll start to realize it.

*smiles at everyone* HAHA!
Such good advice! We're all beautiful!
I always look in the mirror and find one thing I think looks great each day. My eyelashes, my freckles, whatever!
A smile is all you need to show confidence!
In my experience, its all about confidence. You just have to believe you look as beautiful as you are and then it becomes more apparent to those around you.

Self Care Tips From BTS Plus Self Care and BTS Giveaway
Hello fam! So much has happened! We are growing in numbers with members. Plus we have gained a new editor! I'm super excited! We all know that BTS are huge supporters of self care and self love! Like...they did do an entire album and concept called Love yourself and our President Namjoon brought it up at his huge speech. So let's dive into some self care tips from BTS. Tip 1: TRUE LOVE FIRST BEGINS WITH LOVING MYSELF This is so true. No one can love anyone genuinely before loving themselves. This can be a challenge due to how much media tells us unconsciously to not be satisfied with ourselves. Love your flaws and accept who you are. Nothing is wrong with self improvement but remember no one is perfect. Tip 2: "MAYBE I MADE A MISTAKE YESTERDAY, BUT YESTERDAY’S ME IS STILL ME. TODAY, I AM WHO I AM WITH ALL OF MY FAULTS AND MY MISTAKES. TOMORROW, I MIGHT BE A TINY BIT WISER, AND THAT WILL BE ME TOO.” Speaking of self-improvement this quote is spot on. Don't be afraid to be the best version of yourself and don't beat yourself up for making mistakes. What was done yesterday is done, but we can make change for tomorrow based upon what we learned from yesterday's mistakes. IT IS NEVER TOO LATE OR ANYTHING WRONG WITH STARTING OVER! Tip 3: "I HAVE COME TO LOVE MYSELF FOR WHO I AM, FOR WHO I WAS, AND FOR WHO I HOPE TO BECOME.” It also helps to have self reflection as you grow by looking at your past self to see how much you have grown. Just because you are happy with your present self doesn't mean you don't want to continue to grow and or have any future goals. Love your past, present, and future self all in one. I know I can't wait to become my future self! However, I'm thankful for my past self and the lessons she has and will teach my present self. Giveaway Rules and Set up!

5 important questions about children's hair
Children's hairs change several times, with the first curls-curls may well turn into straight strands and vice versa. The color and structure will change, but in any case, it is important to provide the right care. The first hairs appear in the child during the prenatal development, closer to the end of the first trimester. Light fluff, which is called lanugo, covers not only the head, but also the entire body of the baby. According to one version, these are some kind of echoes of the past, when the bodies of our ancestors were completely covered with hair, and according to another version - they protect the epidermis of the fetus from drying out, keeping the fatty secretions that produce skin cells. Lanugo is almost completely off the baby body to the last weeks of pregnancy, they remain only on the head. These first hairs are usually deprived of pigment, but it is not uncommon for a baby to be born with dark and even black hair. It depends, as pediatricians say, on the hormonal status of the mother. Anyway, the original fluff completely falls out by 3-5 months (at a speed of up to 300 hairs a day), and real ones are growing to replace it. But very thin hair that will last a child to 2-3 years of age, when the structure of new hair changes again. Children's hair is similar in composition to an adult, more delicate and thin, the follicles are located very close to the epidermis, the cuticle of the hair itself has considerably less layers than that of an adult. All this suggests that children's hair is more susceptible to external factors and easier to fall out and break. The terminal hair, with which the child will live his whole life, grows only during puberty - at the age of 12-14 years and may differ from the early hair in color and structure. WHAT DETERMINES THE COLOR, LENGTH AND HEALTH OF CHILDREN'S HAIR? The fact that the baby was born with lush hair, or almost bald, does not say anything about what will happen to his hair in the future. The condition of the head cover of the fetus is influenced mainly by the state of the mother, her hormones and other factors. The color of the first hairs is regulated by the amount of melanin - the pigment appears in lanugo 4-5 weeks before delivery. "Since the composition of melanin, on which the child's hair depends, is not very stable and can change depending on the changeable hormonal background, only by 2-3 years it will become clear whether the baby will be blond or brunette." As for the length of the hair and the density of the hair, it depends primarily on the genetic predisposition. It is believed that up to 4-5 years of age you should not worry that there are too few hairs on the head, even if it is the head of a future princess. WHEN CAN I CUT MY HAIR? There is still a prejudice that it is impossible to cut the hair of a child until he is one year old. The argument of this superstition is very different, for example: “if you cut the hair of a small child, he will not begin to speak for a long time”, “the energy is concentrated in the hair, if cut, the child will be sick”. Such arguments do not withstand any criticism, however, it is worth saying that up to a year the baby’s hair rarely grows so much that it bothers him and his parents. However, if they still bother you, you can do no harm to your hair or baby by shortening it. Another persistent myth of many centuries constantly raises questions from parents - is it worth shaving a baby’s head well after a year? Supposedly, the newly grown hair will be stronger and healthier. In fact, removing hair, we have no effect on the follicle. From which the next one will grow, thus, shaving will not change the structure and condition of the new hair. HOW AND WHAT TO WASH CHILDREN'S HAIR PROPERLY? In addition, the transitional hair of a child is very delicate and is much more exposed to external effects than adults, terminal hair, the skin of the child’s scalp is more delicate and sensitive. Thus, it is very important to protect the baby's head from exposure to sunlight, dust, cold, aggressive detergents. For washing children's hair, you can use only special children's shampoos, with a level of acid-base balance (pH) from 4 to 6, it is a weakly acidic environment, safe for delicate hair and skin. The minimum content of surfactants in the shampoo is desirable, best of all, if the product is made on a soap basis with the addition of herbs. "Before applying the shampoo on the baby's head, foam it between your palms, do not pour the product directly on the hair. Apply the foam on the head, distribute the hair, and then rinse under running warm running water (you can under the shower) for at least 4-5 minutes." Washing children's hair with detergent should be no more than 1-2 times a week, otherwise you can break their natural protective lubricant. While the hairs are not wet, you should not comb them, and children's hair should dry only in a natural way, without using a hair dryer and other devices. WHAT TO DO WITH MILK CRUSTS? The problem that worries many moms of babies is fat dense crusts that cover part of the head under the hair. The cause of the appearance of gneiss or seborrheic dermatitis is not reliably known, as an option - they appear due to the hyperfunction of the sebaceous glands. As a rule, these crusts of the child do not bother, they are considered a variant of the norm and pass with age without outside intervention. "However, if mom crusts deliver discomfort. You can try to get rid of them. To do this, pediatricians recommend 15-20 minutes before bathing to lubricate the scalp with vegetable oil, and after bathing gently comb with a comb with rounded teeth."
Self-care: Skincare Routine
Hello fam! Taking care of your outside is a part of self care. Skin care is not only good practice or hygiene, but can help reduce stress with the time and quality of products that you use. I will share my updated skin care routine. FYI my skin type is dry and sensitive. 1. Music I always have to play some music and groove when I take care of my skin. As ya know I'm either rocking out to BTS or some rock band! 2. Products for Day Time: Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam and Drunk Elephant Protini Moisturizer This cleanser is super gentle and so silky. It does have a super light scent. This does not dry out my skin.I purchased my on Amazon. It's under 20 bucks and a little goes a long way. I use this in the morning. This is expensive!!! I will say about $65 bucks USA coins. However, a little goes a long way and the formula is like hydrating your skin with silk. This is light weight but super hydrating. Great to apply before make up as well. 3. Night Time Products: Biore Witch Hazel Pore Clarifying Cooling Cleanser, Real Cica Essense Pads, and Dr. Jart Ceramidin This cooling gel cleanser gives me life and soothes my skin at night time. It feels so relaxing. Make sure not to leave in skin for too long if you have sensitive skin. These pads claim to be a light skin peel. I will say that it does soften my skin, reduces irritation and or inflammation, and leaves skin supple with a glow. You can purchase these on Amazon too. This moisturizer has so many natural ingredients and does have a lemon scent. This is thicker but super hydrating. This does help reduce irritation as well. This did cost about $35 bucks. 4. Makeup face: Take the day off Cleansing Milk For my make up I double cleanse. I use this Cleansing Milk followed by either or wash and my night time moisturizer. This was $25 at Ulta. Sorry folks I know I should use spf but I don't. I used to use this sun blocker but it ended up breaking me out after 6 months of using it.
