Here’s how to feel your best at any age, with tips and pieces from our #BrandsToTrust.
ON THE RUN
Take the time to find out what exercise works for you. Whether its a 20-minute HIIT class or a 20 mile run, maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regime is the time-honoured approach to body confidence. Sounds obvious? Our tip is to consider it like a few moments to yourself, to reclaim some of your busy life back. Once the routine is established, you’ll be surprised at how your confidence will skyrocket and you’ll appreciate just what your body can do, even more than how it looks. And if you’re struggling to start? There’s no better excuse than a fitness retreat with like-minded people try our experiences from WildFitness or Bold Bodies, which are just as healthy for the planet as for you.
Supporting and chic underpinnings can give you more of a confidence boost than you might realise. Feeling put together and comfortable will show on the outside, whatever age you are. Look to Freolic London for French Leavers lace that will put a pep in your step. Ethically produced, each piece is crafted using traditional methods and comes in ultra-flattering hues and cuts.
True confidence runs deeper than your skincare routine, but its a good place to start! Depending on your skin, our range of #BrandsToTrust have you covered shop anti-ageing, ultra-hydrating creams from Virginia Stone, while Argentum Apothecary uses colloidal silver for healing problem areas.
The secret to body confidence? Look to polished ready-to-wear that accentuates your silhouette, encouraging you to work with your figure not fight it. A pencil skirt will flatter curves, while a straight-leg trouser is the ultimate power piece. Joanna Dai offers a mindful collection of styles that make the perfect work wear or special occasion look.
Most importantly, its necessary to indulge in some self-love every once in a while. This means succumbing to your surroundings, snuggling up and just allowing yourself to just be. Body confidence can only come from accepting yourself as you are in that moment, as well as knowing how to fake it when you need to. Put your favourite film on, concoct your go-to tipple and do whatever makes you feel happy whether thats a longer lie-in, a pamper session or just a catch up with a friend.
