Common Factors Affecting Women's Confidence In Their Appearance

Standing up to modern beauty standards is an uphill fight, regardless of what you look like.

A lot of work has to be put into loving yourself, and accepting what parts of yourself you can. However, it can be difficult when what you see in the mirror really affects your self-confidence. Here, we’re going to look at some of the most common issues women have, as well as what steps you can take to address them.

Perceived weight

One of the biggest drivers of self-confidence woes is the weight issues that many of us are dealing with. You don’t even need to be overweight to see how a few pounds can make a difference in your appearance. Living a more active lifestyle is a good mood booster, regardless of your health, but it’s important to try and keep a healthy perspective on weight and diet, focusing on nutrition rather than just trying to get skinnier.

Signs of aging

We’re all getting older, but if you feel like you’re starting to see wrinkles, fine lines, and changes in your skin earlier than others, you should work out what the root cause is and take care of it. Protect your skin from the sun and make sure that your skincare both hydrates and feeds your skin the nutrients that it needs. If you’re seeing smile lines and crow's feet, then Botox can be a great way to help regenerate the connective tissue that causes these lines to appear. Dermal fillers can be effective for other wrinkles.

Facial shape

In large part, you’re stuck with the face that you’re born with, but that doesn’t mean that some features can’t be enhanced to improve how you see yourself. A lot of people, in particular, aren’t confident in or comfortable with their noses. You can improve your facial features with procedures like a rhinoplasty, that can help you reshape your nose to some degree to make it more symmetrical, or more in proportion with the rest of your face. This can be especially effective for those who have issues with their nose, like an injury that has misshapen it, or if they have a bump in it.

Oral health

Health should be the first and foremost concern with your mouth and teeth, but there’s no denying that their aesthetics can play a huge role in how you see yourself, as well. A bright and healthy smile can make you feel a lot more beautiful, while common dental issues like discoloration, alignment issues, and damaged or even missing teeth can make people feel a lot less confident about smiling or expressing themselves in general, which can have significant long term effects on their self-esteem. Restorative dentistry can address most of these issues.

Whether or not taking action is the right step for you is something you have to decide. If you can come to love yourself, despite what you perceive as your imperfections, that’s the best outcome possible. But it doesn’t mean that you have lived unhappily with yourself.
