Step Out Of The Beauty Rut With Style And Poise

We don’t always feel our best. We don’t always spring out of bed in the morning, raring to go and feeling inspired. Sometimes we’re sick or tired. Sometimes we’re blue. And we don’t always love our bodies like the magazines tell us to. On some days we see our flaws clearly, and everything else is forgotten.

If you’re feeling less than your best self, and you’re stuck in a beauty rut, step out of it with these simple beauty tricks.


If your hair looks a mess, it will ruin the whole look. If you’ve ever watched one of those TV makeovers, it’s often changes to hairstyles that make the most difference. You have several choices. If you’re a ‘go big or go home’ kind of a gal, take a trip to the salon and change your do. Go for something completely different to surprise and wow.

If you’re looking for something a bit less dramatic, opt for a simple haircut. This will neaten up the style, get rid of dry and split ends, and provide an overall healthy appearance.

Even if you don’t want to change the style or length of your hair, keep it trimmed regularly and look for treatments suitable for your hair type. Many of these can be applied at home. Washing and treating your hair is an instant pick-me-up.
For mid-length and long hair, look online for styling tutorials. If you usually wear your hair up, wear it down for a while, and vice versa.

If you’ve been using the same tired makeup since forever, it’s time to take it up a notch. Treat yourself to a beauty makeover with a professional. He or she will advise you on the products to suit your skin type, coloring, and features. Many department stores provide this for free with a minimum spend on beauty products.

If you’re not really a makeup person, just go for the basics. You’re aiming for natural, flawless finish. Always invest in a good primer. This is an area where you shouldn’t skimp as it provides a smooth, even foundation for the rest of your makeup. Then find a foundation that works for your skin tone. Complete the look with neutral or nude shades of eyeshadow and lipstick and a lash-lengthening mascara.

All the makeup in the world won’t disguise broken or discolored teeth. Find a professional cosmetic dentist to create a smile you can be proud of.


A simple and effective way to step out of your beauty rut is to update your wardrobe. You don’t have to go out and change this completely. Adding a few key pieces is often all it takes. For example, conservative work outfits can be transformed with a simple scarf or a belt and some jewelry. Accessories are your friend.

Go through your closet and review each garment. Rather than opting for the usual outfit choices, find some unexpected variations. It’s surprising how much you can switch up your outfits without having to pay a penny. If you’re nifty with a needle and thread, change some buttons or repurpose some of your clothes.

It’s easy to get into a rut. It happens slowly. We find what we feel works for us and then we stick to it. This is fine, but every so often it’s a good idea to mix things up a little.
