Celebrities have eyes on them all the time.
And there is so much pressure to be picture perfect. I mean, imagine if the paparazzi took pictures of you during your 10pm grocery store run for a tub of Ben & Jerry’s… the things they would capture on film.
So how do they do it?
Some celebrities get ‘caught’ being normal all the time. Makeup-less, sweatpants-wearing, just back from the gym sweaty people. But other celebrities (Jennifer Aniston for example) NEVER seem to take a bad photo. How is this possible?
That’s right, ladies. Maintenance. Taking care of your body and taking pride in your appearance at all times. And you can do it too! Here are 5 ways to ensure you’re picture perfect at all the right moments.
1. Treat Yourself
To an at-home facial at least once a week. Beautiful skin requires upkeep, and your skin deserves to be pampered weekly! Take 30-45 minutes to cleanse, apply a mask, massage, tone and moisturizer your face. Trust me, your skin will glow so much the next day that all the effort will be TOTALLY worth it.
2. Dress For Success
They say “dress for the job you want… not the job you have,” and whoever ‘they’ may be, I totally agree. It’s not about spending thousands of dollars on the most fashionable, off-the-runway designer wear. It’s about wearing clothes that make you feel beautiful, powerful and professional. When you’re having a bad day, dress for a good day and I promise that everything will look a little bit brighter 🙂
3. No Sweatpants
Unless you’re going to the gym, no sweatpants in public. I know this is a hard rule to follow, but working your way into a pair of jeans or a cute skirt to go to the mall or the grocery store does more than change your appearance; it also changes the way you think about yourself. Like our grandmothers did before us, change out of your pajamas before leaving the house. You’ll thank me if you run into your ex at the dry cleaners.
4. Walk Tall
Did you know that standing up straight can shave off the appearance of up to 10 pounds?!? It’s like an instant juice cleanse. Not only that, practicing proper posture aids with digestion, strengthens your back and abdominal muscles, and can even prevent chronic back pain. So walk tall ladies, and proudly strut your stuff!
You’re most beautiful when you’re happy. It’s been scientifically proven that men are drawn more to images of women smiling than of women ‘duck-face-ing’… okay the study didn’t say that exactly but you know it’s true! So when those cameras hit you, smile!
