Little things to boost body confidence



Often I find myself down and out about what I look like because I'm not taking enough time to take care of myself. I'm pretty sure everyone has those days where they just feel a bit crap. 

I have a little ritual I like to do to check in with myself and take care of my vessel. 

Exercise and watch what you eat; 
DUH. Right. I'm not saying eat salad for the rest of your life or slug it out in the gym every single day. But I am saying eat less junk and pick up more fruit, go to the gym and do something 2-3 times a week. You'll feel better for it. 

Shave & Exfoliate; 
I recommend the Superdrug Vitamin E body scrub. Yes! This is good stuff people! It makes your skin feel silky smooth. Exfoliating is also good for getting rid of dead skin cells and increasing blood flow. 

I use unrefined coconut oil everywhere (except my face) it's great for healing the skin, moisturising, reducing scars and makes you look all glowing. Take the time after you shower to massage it through your skin. 

Fake tan; 
Black girls fake tan too! Yes HUNNY. I mainly fake tan because I need these legs of mine to match the rest of my body. My legs are pale and so being that summer has missed us this year I'm using the Bondi Sands Fake Tan to give me that summer time glow and reduce the appearance of any scars and stretch marks. Fake tanning does serious things for my body confidence. 

So, when I'm stuck in a rut and feeling a bit down i simply make some more time to take care of me.
