Have you ever felt unattractive to the point that you do not like looking in the mirror? Has it impacted you to the point that now you have become uncomfortable in your own skin? The thing is many people deal with insecurities every day. It’s nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about because we all have grown through stages in our lives when we do not like something about ourselves.
Considering this, I wanted to write this guest post for letstakeamoment.com and share three tips that may help you all love the skin that God gave you. It is important to accept yourself and not strive for an ideal of perfection that is not realistic.
- ACCEPT YOURSELF AT ALL STAGES OF LIFE.
Let’s say you put on a few pounds and now you feel insecure about your weight. Or perhaps you struggle with acne and hate your skin. The thing is beauty is universal and not one-dimensional. The point is that even if you have problems with your height, weight, skin, or whatever, it’s all part of being human.
This is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed by because no one is perfect. Consider that fact that even if you choose to change something about yourself, there will still be beauty because it is at every stage of life. Keep in mind that the choice should be up to you rather than the pressure of feeling like you must change your looks to fit in.
2. NEVER DEPEND ON OTHERS TO VALIDATE YOUR BEAUTY.
It’s one thing when you know your beauty and self-worth. However, it’s another thing when you depend on others to validate it. The truth is when you do not realize your self-worth, it can be hard to feel beautiful in your skin.
Get to the point in acceptance of yourself that you will not rely on others for confirmation regarding your beauty and deserving of the best in life. Decide that you do not need others to tell you this. In doing so you will no longer live off of what others are saying about you and will no longer need to always have the validation of others.
3. PRACTICE WORDS OF AFFIRMATION
Practicing words of affirmation is a great way to boost your self-esteem and confidence. You can begin by looking in the mirror and saying something positive about yourself. Such as: “I love my skinny legs or thick thighs.” Or “I like being tall because my long legs look good in shorts, skirts, and dresses.”
These are just “3 WAYS TO FEEL MORE BEAUTIFUL IN YOUR SKIN” that I wanted to include in this post. Keep in mind, when it all boils down to it, we all have one body. Decide that while you have it, treat it with love and respect. Most importantly, love the skin God gave you. Instead of treating it as a disease or something that is not worthy of being loved.

Love words of affirmations, it really uplifts your mood.
Great guest blogpost. It’s very true to validate your beauty without waiting for others to affirm you. Such a great point.
Loving myself is really quite the struggle sometimes, I’ll make sure to consider these tips and practice the affirmations. Thanks for sharing!
Unfortunately none of those work for me, my inner critic is harsher on me than it is on anyone else. My inner critic can’t stop seeing flaws in everything and unfortunately I see myself more than anyone else, so it becomes hyper focused on my flaws
I think the 2nd one is the most important, but one of the most difficult. It is hard not to let what others think of you get in the way of what you think of yourself. Great post!
I agree with you, we should feel beautiful no matter what others say. Great tips!
This is so beautifully written!
Love this! It took me many years to love the skin I’m in but I’m thankful to be here now! Words of affirmation such as “I’m beautiful”. “I’m made in the image of God.” “My skin glows.” Really changed my mindset. Beautifully written piece 🤎
Words of affirmation works! I’ve done it and it works wonders.
Wonderful blog post! It can be hard to have the confidence to love yourself in every stage of life so thank you for sharing
These are really great points to help you feel more comfortable in your skin. I do struggle to be confident due to my knee accident I haven’t been able to exercise very much and so I have put on weight. I am working on myself. Thank you for sharing.

All three are excellent points! It might not be easy to implement them, but persistence will help increase confidence.
This is a great post. I need to start using your tips more. I am slowly starting to love my own skin. Going to start saying more affirmations. Thank you for sharing this post.
Good job Brooke. Accepting where you are makes you feel good about yourself. All problems with self arise from rejecting self. Accept who you are and where you are right now.
Affirmations are a great way to boost self-confidence. Also worth remembering to speak to yourself as if to a best friend, that helps too!
There are times I feel ok with myself and some others that I just hate him and critisize everything. Shifting to positive self talk gives me a boost I need to continue and start accepting myself as is.
Affirmation is such a good idea. I’m currently working on trying to focus on me as a person and not just on my looks. Thank you for sharing!
This was so encouraging to read and just what I needed to be reminded of — thank you! Lovely post!
