Be Your Best You

Refined Beauty Boutiuque

Does beauty have anything to do with being your best you? While being your best you is not dependent on physical appearance, it does have a lot to do with self care, investing your time in knowing how to care for your body, skin, and hair, and lots and lots of self love. It can seem like a simple change to make to your lifestyle, but it does come with a lot of time and effort, which is what we're here to help you out with. Do you think beauty can help you be your best you? If so, how? If not, we'd love to shed some light.

How you feel about the way your look directly effects your self-esteem, confidence, performance, and attitude.

Hit the Salon

Get a great cut and color. This should suit your personal style, your skin color, hair type, and lifestyle. It will make mornings easier if this is already done. We may be biased, but it is worth the investment! Even if your lounging in your sweats on your day off, you can still feel beautiful when you have a fresh hair cut & color and cared-for skin.

Keep it simple, loves. Invest some time and effort into staple pieces like a great lip color or blush. It's also important to invest some time in the surface canvas - your skin. Care for your skin by exfoliating three times a week and use an anti-aging product daily. Great makeup needs a healthy canvas too! We've provided a little background on why these things are important to include in your makeup routine. 

Cleanse before applying products like anti-aging ingredients: exfoliate 3x per week, moisturize daily, and always wear sunscreen! 

Anti-aging ingredients: vitamin C (helps to brighten), hyloronic acid (helps plump skin), and retinol (helps reduce wrinkles)

    Self-love: Where does a woman start when it comes to reinventing herself from a beauty point of view?

    Everything starts with (a lot) of self love. It may sound like a novelty thing at this point, but it takes a lot more dedication and effort than we all realize. Put it in your calendar every week to do a little spa treat for yourself. This can be a 5 minute hydrating sheet masque to a deep conditioning treatment on your hair or a peppermint foot masque to relax. Look in the mirror and tell yourself things such as “I am beautiful” “I look amazing” or "dang I'm cute"! Feeling like you look great starts with giving yourself words of affirmation that you are!

    How we feel on the outside effects us positively or negatively on in the inside. Unfortunately, this can mean your confidence and your attitude. Have you ever had a bad hair day? Yep! How fast does that make you want to go back to bed? Make time to care for you and your beauty.

    It's all about thinking differently about your appearance and being confident in who you are so you can be the BEST YOU!

    Focusing on your outer appearance has nothing to do with others. It's first and foremost all about you! It's about showing yourself that you're worthy of self care, spa treatment, and feeling your absolute best. Itching to get into the salon now? Book your appointment TODAY! We would love nothing more than to have you take a seat, relax with a complimentary beverage, and get a head start on your best you!
