Things You Can Do to Boost Your Confidence

As a busy woman, sometimes it can feel like life is spinning in many directions — and that can contribute to a loss of confidence. You may be running a busy household, managing a stressful career and/or raising children. You want to be at your absolute best, but how do you get there? To weather any storm, building confidence is extremely important. It’s the best way to maintain your poise and power through a tough day at work, a blind date or any stressful situation.

Nivea’s Q10 Power products gives women everywhere the confidence to be themselves. It can be as simple as applying Nivea Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Replenishing Pearls on a cleansed face every morning for firmer and smoother skin. In partnership with Nivea Q10 Power, here are ways to help build your inner confidence – perhaps in ways you had never thought of before.

Change up your beauty routine

Feeling good is integral to living a balanced life but on the days when your confidence feels shaky, a small change to your beauty routine can go a long way. It can be anything from switching to a new shampoo or adding Nivea Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer + Fragrance Free to your morning ritual. Perfect for dry, sensitive skin, the gentle, fragrance-free moisturizer combines antioxidant Q10 with creatine to visibly reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin looking firmer in 2 weeks.

You can pair it with Nivea Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream to visibly reduce wrinkles and dark under-eye circles. It contains 10x more Creatine than the previous formula for a more radiant looking eye area.

Declutter your mind

Another way to boost your confidence is to declutter the mind and meditate. While it may seem intimidating, meditation can be a wonderful way to relax and get in touch with yourself. Just sit down in a comfortable position and focus on your breath–that’s all it takes. You don’t need to spend much time on it, either. Studies suggest just five minutes a day to start, and first thing in the morning is often best to establish a habit that is easy to keep up. Decluttering the mind through meditation has been shown to create resilience to stress and improve your overall well-being.

Challenge yourself with something new

While sitting quietly can help calm the mind and keep you focused, moving your body can help you gain inner power. Activities have been proven to improve your mood and increase your self-esteem. If there’s something you’ve always wanted to try, now is the time. If you always wanted to try sketch comedy but never found the courage, take the first step and join a beginner class. If you’ve always wanted to learn a different language but never found the time, take an online course and start studying. You’ll never know how much stronger and revitalized you’ll feel after accomplishing a physical goal.

Lean on your friends

Sometimes it takes others to give you strength, so don’t be shy to lean on close friends or family for support. If you need a pick-me-up, there’s no better way to get it than with a night out with a life-long friend who can remind you of everything that makes you great: your sense of humour, your ability to take on multiple roles, your caring nature, etc. If you’re nervous about a first date or an interview, call one of your girlfriends for a quick pep talk.

Feel good in your skin with Nivea Q10 Power.
