Look Good, Feel Great with Watson's

I belong to Gen X, raised by Boomers who think that self-promotion and loving one's self first is well, to put it, selfish.

But as we all know now, and have known all along, there is nothing wrong with that. We call it  now "filling our love tank" or "putting your own oxygen mask first". It's crucial to our sanity.

This week, Watsons launches their #LookGoodFeelGreat campaign with an online video to remind us all to be kinder to ourselves. That it's ok to love ourselves, because when we do, we feel great.

Here are some insights and tips on self-love from Watsons. 

What is Self-love?

  • Self-love is a state of appreciation for yourself that is manifested through different means. 
  • Self-love involves taking care of yourself, not losing touch with who you are despite the stresses of everyday life. 
  • Taking care of your health, face, hair and skin are some of the basic aspects of self-love because when you look good, you feel great. 
  • Self-love starts with self-awareness, which means knowing your strengths and weaknesses and likes and dislikes. It can mean anything from doing something that will make you feel great like wearing a new pair of shoes or applying red lipstick on a Monday to make you look good.
How can we practice Self-love?
  1. Be aware. It all starts with knowing who you are and what you can do. 
  2. Don’t procrastinate. So one of your New Year’s resolutions is to achieve glowing skin. Don’t wait until the year is over to have a realistic skin care routine based on proper cleansing, moisturizing and sun protection. 
  3. Be goal-oriented. Proper sleep, exercise and good nutrition are only some of the steps you should take to achieve your goals. List down your goals and think carefully how you can achieve them. 
  4. Don’t be too hard on yourself. You’re not perfect; nobody is. If you are overweight, you can do something about it. If you look tired, there’s a reason for that. It’s not because you were born that way. 
  5. Realize that you’re not alone. So many people struggle with lack of time or will to take proper care of yourself. Watsons encourages each one of us to love themselves more to look good and feel great.
