There are many unrealistic expectations that we hold ourselves up to. And as a result, we pick ourselves apart rather than lifting ourselves up. However, if we showed our bodies a little more love, we would feel a whole lot better. A good place to start is by developing body awareness, so here are 8 awareness activities to help you feel more confident in your body:
- Close your eyes and tell yourself what you see.
- The next time you wake up in the morning, take a moment to stretch, feel the sheets on your skin, and become aware of the way your feet plant on the floor.
- Say one thing you believe to be true about yourself.
- Take a good look in the mirror. Ask yourself how it feels to look into your eyes.
- Wear clothing that you feel really good in and tell yourself why.
- After eating a meal, notice how your belly feels. What is it telling you?
- Scan your body from head to toe – feel the sensations as your eyes move down and then back up. Be aware that each sensation is meant to be felt in your body.
- Put your hands over your heart and feel it beat as you focus on your breath.

As we mature, it can be difficult to maintain a youthful glow. And while some swear by creams that supposedly penetrate through deep layers of the skin and reverse the aging process, it is very unlikely to happen. However, thanks to new revolutionary treatments like Forever Young BBL™, you can naturally boost your skin’s ability to fight the aging process!
Does it sound like the perfect treatment for you? Before you make a decision, here’s what you need to know:
How does it work?
Forever Young BBL™ sends light energy deep into your skin and allows your body to not only fight aging, but also reverse the effects. In fact, this treatment has helped patients appear up to 11 years younger than their actual age!
What areas can be treated?
The most commonly treated areas are those that have been most exposed to sunlight, as UV rays are known to cause wrinkles and dry skin. And although most patients request treatment on the face, neck, hands, chest, and shoulders, we are able to treat any area of the body.
How long will the process take?
Due to our personalized approach, the number of treatments required depends upon your unique situation. Your clinician may also request that you combine Forever Young BBL™ with other aesthetic procedures to give you the best results. We recommend that you schedule a consultation with us to learn more about how much time the process will take for you to complete.
What is recovery like?
Rest assured that Forever Young BBL™ is a non-invasive procedure that works gently and painlessly. And the best part is that there is no downtime at all, which means you can come on your work break, do the treatment, freshen up your makeup, and return without anyone knowing your secret! While you may experience a little redness after the treatment, this will disappear fairly quickly. Ultimately, your skin will feel smoother and your pores will appear less noticeable than ever before.

Getting perfectly smooth legs for summer is something that every woman wants. But before you grab your razor, you should know one thing: most of us are doing it wrong. While shaving might be a bit of a hassle, there are a few tips that can make a process a whole lot easier.
Don’t shave right away in the shower.
Do make shaving your last step. Why? Because when your body steams up in the shower, it allows your hair to soften, giving you one of the best shaves you’ll ever have! In the meantime, lather up your hair and give yourself a mini facial.
Don’t shave upwards.
Do shave in the opposite direction, especially if you have super sensitive skin. The reason? Because shaving upwards can cause minor cuts and irritation to your skin.
Don’t use an old razor. When the blade gets dull, the best thing you can do is toss it out.
Do replace your razor for a new one after approximately five shaves. This will make your skin less susceptible to bumps, burns, and bacteria that can cause possible infections.
Don’t use soap to lather up.
Do use a conditioning cream instead. It’s easy to reach for the soap bar when you’ve run out of shaving cream, but doing so can cause drying. Plus, bar soap doesn’t provide quite the amount of lubrication your skin needs to achieve a silky feel.
