How healthy hair, skin, and nails promote style freedom

How healthy hair, skin, and nails promote style freedom

Modern trends focus on individualized beauty–it’s the era of “You Do You,” and it’s ripe with self-actualization and a push toward being the best version of yourself. But how do you do that? 

It isn’t as straight forward as it seems. Who you are and how you express yourself is an ongoing journey. A lifelong dedication to living your best life and letting it show. You’re an incredible, multifaceted person, so how do you shine?

Start with health

You may have noticed that, along with the focus on self-actualization and self-expression, there is a parallel trend toward health. This is not a coincidence. The best version of you is a healthy, vibrant person who accepts their natural beauty and fuels their body, inside and out, with only the best all-natural products. 

It just goes hand-in-hand that if you’re focused on all-natural products, you’re going to be healthier, and if your goal is being healthier, you’re going to choose better products. This is the core idea behind using your health to look your best and to feel comfortable expressing who you are, aesthetically. The following tips can help:

Learn more. Become a research maven, and learn what new trends have science behind them and which ones are a waste of your time and money.

Focus on quality. Quantity is a thing of the past. More is not better, but having the best products is. 

Develop loyalty. Today’s beauty product pros know that finding the best all-natural products made from quality ingredients that produce results, is worth holding onto. 

Look long term. Great beauty and health don’t immediately appear after a trip to the spa or treatment. It takes time and commitment to boost your overall health.

Why health matters

Being healthy can feel like hard work initially, but it will become a part of your essential being and help you define what works for you. Once you start to feel and look better, you’ll see that you now have more freedom to express yourself. 

There’s inherent confidence when you’re glowing with health and energy. Why not play with that by exploring all sides of your personality.

How to show off the new healthy you

Of course, being you means you get to make the choices on how you’ll look, but these ideas provide a great starting place.

Hair trend tips

This season’s hair color trends are spot-on for expressing yourself because they’re so broad that anyone can find one that works for them. Candy colors are gone except for bright pink, and the natural version of pink is copper. Natural brunette and blonde looks are becoming more common. Expect to hear a lot about pony lights this year.

When it comes to haircuts, it comes down to one thing–be dramatic! If you’re used to having long hair, then super short hair is in. If you’ve always had short hair, start growing it, and add some bangs. Bangs are back big time.

Skin trend tips

You’ve spent a lot of time developing your personalized skincare routine, and you see the results. The last thing you want to do is hide that behind layers of makeup, which is great because the less is more movement is here. 

To highlight your skin’s healthy and youthful appearance, master the dewy and glowy skin look. Most of this is going to come naturally from your skincare routine, but having a shimmery cream or foundation in your toolkit can’t hurt.

The natural look always needs a little balance, and this year it’s going to be all about the eyes. Blue eye shadow, colored eyeliners, and bold eye shapes will add an element of intrigue to your look.

Nail trend tips

Intriguing manicures are still a thing, but there’s also a big push for natural-looking nails with inner strength. If you simply must have the latest nail art, a few trends are already picking up steam this season.

French twists show off this classic style in a new way.

Classic blue is Pantone’s color of the year, and it’s going to be everywhere.

♦ Milky and sea glass nails with a translucent quality

♦ Don’t expect to see one contrast nail, they’ll all have a similar theme while each being unique or the same

♦ Long acrylics are making a comeback for people who like some glamor on their nails

Final thoughts

Being the best version of yourself is an incredible way to live, full of joy and acceptance. But it’s an ongoing process that requires a mindset of “health first.” Once you’ve mastered the basics of living a healthy life and making choices based on what’s best for you, you can advance to the next step–expressing your inner you.

Showing the world who you are and feeling creative freedom when it comes to your appearance, is nothing new. This time around, it’s based on a foundation of health that makes it more significant and powerful. 

This season’s trendsetting looks are all based on having a natural look fueled by the best ingredients. Adding a customized pop of personality to that look is how personal style is born.
