After what has no doubt been one of the longest years of our lives, there is nothing wrong with indulging ourselves in things that help us look good and feel better about ourselves. Life is hard enough as it is, and engaging in activities that can help make us smile is always worth it.
If you have been feeling “blah” lately and are looking for ways to get your mojo back by boosting your confidence this year, here are some treatments you can look into.
Top 5 Beauty Treatments to Help Boost Your Confidence
Injectable fillers are those that help us fill in some facial lines and wrinkles, they help give our faces some volume, augment our natural features, and restore smooth skin. For those of us who spent the majority of the past year and a half neglecting our skin, now may be a good time to explore some injectable fillers to help bring some life and plump back into our appearance.
Some examples of fillers you can try include:
- Lip injections or fillers, which help to incorporate more collagen and other types of filler material into our lips. One of the most common ingredients used for these fillers is hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance that occurs in our body, much like collagen.
- Dermal fillers can help smooth out fine lines around our mouths, nose, and eyes, improve the symmetry of our face, and restore or enhance volume to sunken temples and cheeks.

Laser Hair Removal
We’re currently in one of the hottest summers on record, which is why a trip to the pool or the beach might just be exactly what the doctor ordered. One of the most annoying things about wearing a swimsuit is being bothered by some extra hair in our bodies. And while there’s nothing wrong with just going au naturel, getting rid of our unwanted body hair can bring so much convenience and can help us feel a bit more comfortable.
How about going for some laser hair removal? Getting rid of your unwanted hair more permanently might be able to help you plan a trip to the beach with more ease, and shaving or waxing can be another thing you can cross off your to-do list. During the procedure, a laser will emit a light that will absorb the melanin or pigment of the hair in your skin. That light will then be converted to heat, which is responsible for damaging the follicles that produce hair. This damage is responsible for inhibiting hair growth. If you want to feel a bit more comfortable in your bathing suit this year, consider letting go of some of your extra body hair.
If you suffer from uneven skin tone or blemishes from past breakouts, consider going for a microdermabrasion treatment. The treatment primarily removes dead skin cells and helps facilitate cell regeneration. This treatment is most ideal for those who are going to a special occasion, like a wedding or a big party, because even one session can provide instant results and glowing skin. But if you truly want to see your blemishes gone for good, you might need to attend more sessions.
Sunbeds are out, spray tan is in! A spray tan can be the instant boost you need to achieve glowing, beautiful, golden skin. The best part is that this treatment is the easiest to achieve—you can just walk into a salon that offers this service, or look at your local beauty department to buy some DIY products. If you feel like you’ve missed out on the sun due to the intermittent lockdowns in the past year and a half, a spray tan can be exactly what you need to give your body the brightening boost that it needs.
New Hair Color
If you haven’t changed your hair color in years, the summer of 2021 is the best time to experiment! We’re free from lockdowns, we’ll be out in the sun all day, and colorful outfits are trendy again—and new hair can help accommodate us into our new, post-pandemic world. Explore this season’s hair color trends, such as a soft ombré, classic highlights, and even something bold like a dust pink! We’re celebrating finally being free from quarantine, and your hair can be the canvas upon which you express this freedom.
The past year has been hard across the board, and you deserve to enjoy pockets of joy, no matter how small. Treat yourself to one of these beauty treatments and head out for a night on the town with a new found confidence. Even a little boost in your mood can trigger a miraculous chain of events, but you’ll never know unless you put yourself out there.
