Below are four tips for how to love the skin you are in, both in front of the camera and in everyday life.
1. Don’t compare yourself to others – everyone is different and that’s a good thing!
Embrace your unique body shape and appreciate the way you look. Enjoy your natural features and quirks, they make you unique. How boring would this world be if we all looked the same? You are truly beautiful, just the way you are! The more you believe in yourself, the more confident you will feel, and the more others will see your beauty. Beauty truly does start on the inside!
2. Appreciate your body for what it can do, not just how it looks.
Your body has brought you this far in life! Why not celebrate it? Each day, at the cellular level your body is working nonstop to take care of you. Can you imagine having to think about pumping blood through your veins constantly? What a gift to have a body that cares so much about your survival and gives clues when things need attention. Beyond that, your body moves you through this world with senses that help you experience your surroundings. Yep! There is much to appreciate about your body!
3. Be confident in who you are, inside and out.
The best way to love the skin you’re in is to love the person who lives in that skin! The more you truly love who you are and grow in your self-trust, and confidence, the more comfortable you will feel in your skin. Body confidence has nothing to do with the size and shape of your body. It has everything to do with your mindset and your ability to love and appreciate yourself. So, set aside those doubts and fears. Love YOU first, and the love for your body will follow.
4. Acknowledge that your body is a work in progress and will change over time.
Loving the skin you’re in requires patience, grace, and compassion for the life experienced in your body. You might carry scars from injuries or illnesses, stretch marks from pregnancies, or wrinkles from a life lived to the fullest. Embrace these qualities, knowing that you have overcome numerous challenges to make it to today. Your body was never meant to be stagnant. It has constantly been changing and adapting, since before birth! That’s not going to change any time soon! So, embrace your body as it is today, knowing that tomorrow it will be different tomorrow. And that is okay! It’s more than okay…. It’s natural!
