Non-Surgical Treatments: My Opinion


I’ve written a lot recently about self-care, about making yourself feel good by doing things you like and by taking care of your body inside and out. I take a fairly holistic approach to skincare and so on however there are other ways that people may benefit from the advances of science with the end result being that they feel better about themselves, are more confident and enjoy raised self-esteem.

Do I advocate for mindfulness and organic skincare, absolutely! Do I think that when it comes to making yourself feel like you are being the best version of yourself (inside and out) your efforts should involve organic broccoli smoothies or nothing at all? Not a jot! We are living in wonderfully modern times and one of the benefits of such a time is that we may take advantage of the technological and scientific advances that come our way.

Do I mean plastic surgery? Not necessarily although I believe that provided such things are done properly, with both physical and mental health benefits and potential risk factors considered, that there may be real benefits for some people. Look at non-surgical treatments such as laser hair removal for example. Women with PCOS, men with excess hair that they dislike, anyone who is not happy with their appearance may reap the benefits of laser hair removal. Once these treatments were seen as new and perhaps over the top, now they are commonplace and recognised for the positive benefits they offer.

CoolSculpting, a non-surgical method of fat removal is becoming increasingly popular. Fat freezing London based treatments are cleared by the FDA, don’t require needles or surgery or recovery periods and fat cells that are treated are gone for good. This is another example of how the advances in technology and in science may serve us as a kind of self-care tool. It’s worth looking at the link above to the Pulse Light Clinic in London who undertake fat freezing treatments to find out more about how it works. You might be surprised!

Some would argue that this kind of treatment is too much, or that men and women should simply accept the way their bodies look and love themselves for themselves. It is entirely possible that people with such opinions may not understand what low self-esteem feels like. I haven’t undertaken CoolSculpting or any such treatments but I’m a never say never gal. If used responsibly, and of course these treatments and clinics are heavily regulated, they most definitely may help people feel happier, healthier, be more confident and so on.

If a holistic-nut like myself who hasn’t worn make-up since she was 17 years old and who calls leaving the house looking vaguely symmetrical a win thinks that alternative treatments may be hugely beneficial, it’s possible that many others feel the same.

Self Confidence Boosting Tips


Confidence can significantly affect your overall quality of life. Confident individuals tend to be happier and more content. Now, some of us just aren’t naturally confident. We worry, doubt ourselves, and are often overly critical of ourselves. I’m not talking about being an introvert, that is something entirely different. I’m talking about a lack of self-confidence which can have a knock-on effect in many areas of your life.

The good news is that you can take steps in your life to boost your confidence levels. Here are just a couple to try out yourself although they are the tip of the iceberg. I’d love to hear some of your self-confidence pick me ups.

Be Aware of the Artifice of Social Media

Social media can be extremely detrimental when it comes to your levels of self-confidence. Why? Well, we tend to only portray our lives in the best light possible on social media. The majority of people will only post the positive aspects of our lives, the most fun things that we are doing, and attractive photographs of ourselves. We leave out the negative details and occurrences. A surprising number of people also highly edit their photos to look more stereotypically attractive than they may look in real life, and stage photos that make it look like they’re doing things that they might not necessarily be doing. So, you can’t compare your life as you know it to the lives that others are consciously curating and coating in artifice. If you feel that your life isn’t levelling up to those of others you follow on social media, remember that everyone has arguments, everyone has difficulties, and nobody looks perfectly photoshopped in person. Don’t put these expectations on yourself.

Wear Nice Underwear

The majority of us wear whichever underwear happens to be the comfiest. However, this often results in us wearing the same few pairs time and time again. This results in them looking a little worse for wear as time passes by, and more often that not, they probably weren’t the most flattering items to start with. Believe it or not, many women claim that the underwear that they choose to put on in the morning can significantly affect their self-confidence throughout the day. There’s just something empowering that lies in wearing appealing undergarments, even if nobody else ever sees them! So, sift through your underwear drawer, donate old and battered pairs to recycling clothes banks (that can put the materials to better use), and invest in some new panache lingerie. As someone who practically lives in M&S belly grabbers, this point is a significant one for me. I need to invest in some nice, comfortable and *gasp* matching undies that make me feel good.

Implement a Thorough Skincare Routine

This is a self-care tip as well as a self-confidence one. For years I neglected my night-time routine however just feel so much better for prioritising this. The glowing skin you will have as a result of a decent skin care routine will be more than worth the effort. Invest in a high-quality face wash, toner, and moisturiser composed of natural, organic, cruelty-free ingredients and don’t forget to take your makeup off before going to bed, no matter how tired you may be!

Practice Self Confidence

This might sound odd but the more you put yourself out there, the easier for most people it gets. Join in with a conversation, share your views in a meeting, join a group. Work hard on identifying the areas you struggle with and hit them hard.

These are just a few different steps that you can try out when it comes to boosting your confidence levels. They are relatively easy to implement into your attitude and routine. So give them a try! You have nothing to lose!
