I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how important affirmations are in our lives. Affirmations help us see the bigger picture when everything else seems smaller. They also help us to narrow our focus to what truly is important.
But what if I told you that in addition to a solid skincare routine, you could have the best skin of your life, just by incorporating a regular routine of beauty affirmations?
This is more than simple positive thinking, studies have also shown that our words have the power to transform your beauty on the inside and out.
What is an affirmation?
An affirmation is the act of saying something that is true. It’s a verbal agreement that you make between yourself and God. A signed and sealed done deal. Whether the affirmation is said intentionally or not and whether it is a positive or negative one, what you think and speak over yourself and your life is manifested into your reality. The bible even says in Proverbs that “life and death is in the power of the tongue”.
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.Proverbs 18:21
Is there science behind affirmations
Yes! There have been a number of scientific studies that have proven the efficacy of affirmations. With regular practice you can make long-term changes, like reducing stress and worry. Affirmations can also help you make positive life changes and even eat better.
Affirmations help train your brain to seek out the truths that you are speaking. And the more specific the affirmation the better because it gives your brain clear guidelines on which to focus.
Do beauty affirmations work?
I have already shown that affirmations work, that what you speak can become your reality. So the sky’s the limit to what you can change with the power of your words.
Now, this sky limit won’t turn you into Rihanna‘s twin sister, but you can become the best version of you.
Your beauty affirmations should describe how you want to be, and over time as you repeat them, they’ll will become a part of you, entering into your subconscious, you will believe what you’re saying and it will become your reality.
Start with the below affirmations or use them as inspiration to create your own.
My skin is strong and healthy
My skin glows
My skin has a healthy and even tone
I was beautiful, I am beautiful and I will always be beautiful
I love the skin that I see in the mirror
My skin radiates with the positivity that is in my mind and heart
My skin is free of blemishes and scars
I exude beauty and confidence
I love my smooth and clear skin
I am beautiful on the inside and out
When to do these affirmations
To build up a regular habit of speaking beauty affirmations, the best way is to incorporate it into your regular routine. Sayin them in the mirror during your morning and nighttime skin care routines.
And to get your words to transform your beauty faster, also repeat the affirmations while you’re applying your makeup.
I used to roll my eyes any time someone mentioned positive thinking. But, I’m convinced and what do you really have to lose? That change that you’ve been waiting for is at the other end of the words you speak.
