Every now and then, the impulse to reinvent the way we look surfaces. This often occurs when we embark on a new phase of life, like the start of a new job or the end of a relationship. That’s because altering our appearance to reflect our changing identity is a gratifying way of embracing a fresh start.

Additionally, a makeover forces you to step outside the bounds of familiarity and meet a new version of yourself, which can make you feel more self-assured. In fact, you don’t even have to be at a crossroads in life — you can switch up your appearance just because you want to! Here are seven easy ways to get the glow-up that you desire:

#1 Change your hairstyle

Chop a chunk of your hair off or grow it out; bleach it and try an eye-catching dye or go back to your natural shade; get bangs or say goodbye to fringe altogether. Need help figuring out what works best for you? Consult a professional and let them have free rein — your hairstylist should be able to select a style that complements your face shape and features. This way, you get to be surprised too!

#2 Revamp your wardrobe

Swap your typical fashion formula for something on the other end of the style spectrum. If you usually stick to clean lines and neutral palettes, try incorporating some prints or standout hues into your wardrobe. A maximalist at heart? Switch things up by reaching for uncomplicated basics that put the focus on silhouettes, detailing, and textures. 

#3 Accessorise creatively

There’s no better way to inject some individuality into your ensembles than with accessories — the devil is in the details! Whether you reach for understated jewellery, a fine timepiece, or statement sunglasses, they can help to spice up even the most understated of outfits. 

#4 Adjust your skincare routine

The state of our skin has an undeniable impact on our self-confidence, which is why we are always longing for a healthy complexion. Since the condition and needs of our skin are ever-changing, it’s important to continually adjust our skincare routine to make sure that the products we use address our specific skin concerns. Plus, there’s no better way to keep inflammation and irritation at bay! 

#5 Whiten your teeth & brighten your smile

It is no easy feat to keep our teeth brilliantly white between our dental visits, especially for busy professionals with a full-fledged caffeine addiction. Pray tell, how does one get through the midday slump without consuming copious amounts of coffee and tea? The bad news is that these beverages can stain our teeth over time.

Thankfully, maintaining a white smile is easy with Darlie’s All Shiny White Supreme Enzyme Toothpaste, which dissolves stubborn stains into small particles that can be easily brushed away. It is formulated with natural enzymes — papain and glucanase — and has five times more stain-dissolving power*.

Step out of your comfort zone and get creative with your looks! Dip your toes in the dopamine makeup trend and say yes to mood-boosting hues, glitter, or shimmer. Feeling extra adventurous? Add some gemstones and pearls around your eyes like the stars in HBO’s hit high-school drama series Euphoria.

#7 Switch up your fitness & wellness routine

It’s easy to fall into a rut when it comes to your workout and wellness routine, which is why you ought to switch things up every once in a while.

When you feel strong and good about your body, you’ll naturally radiate confidence!
