We all like to take care of our appearance and put our best foot forward. 

But sometimes the pressures of life mean that even the most immaculate amongst us can sometimes let things slip.

Holding down high-pressure jobs, taking care of children, and traveling all impact your health – meaning that it’s not always possible to maintain the most balanced lifestyle.

So now’s the time to pause and reflect. Then figure out some simple ways to make yourself feel on top of the world again.

With that in mind, here are five easy ways to shush up your appearance. 

1. Hair

Getting your hair styled at a plush salon is one of life’s little luxuries that we all deserve – you really can walk out of the salon feeling transformed after a cut and color. If you’ve not been to the hairdresser for a while and need a recommendation, check out these Luxury Salons of the World. Whether you choose a bob or a beehive, you’ll feel fantastic.

2. Facial

Your face is under a lot of pressure from environmental pollutions and emotional stresses and strains every day. But proper facial treatment can combat the signs of aging and make you feel ten years younger – for example, a hydro facial can be completed in as little as one hour, without anesthetic and the rejuvenating results are excellent.

3. Eyewear

If you prefer glasses to contacts (or laser treatment), then investing in some new eyewear can have a dramatic effect on your appearance and it’s a simple way to switch up your look. Furthermore, if you can splash out on a second pair, you can coordinate countless outfit options. Stuck getting started? We’re loving this Cartier eyewear showcased by Net-A-Porter. 

4. Workout

Fancy working out but your busy schedule means that you can’t commit to attending a gym regularly? How about investing in a home exercise system with live streaming, like Peloton? These types of workout regimes give you the best of both worlds, as you’ll have the support of peers and professional instructors while you get in trim in the comfort of your own home. 

5. Dentistry

When your teeth are less than perfect (and few of us have 100% Hollywood smiles), it can really affect your confidence. However, professionals like Portman Dental Care have a range of discreet treatments such as Invisalign, which can correct crooked teeth rapidly and make you feel uninhibited about flashing that smile again. This is the type of treat that can really boost the way you feel about yourself! 

These five easy ways to zhush up your appearance will help you start to feel like yourself again – which has boundless benefits as many of us are about to enter the first proper party season since lockdown 1.0 in a little while. 

You’ll have to splash some cash on your personal MOT – but feeling fabulous is priceless!
