10 Ways to help boost your ego

What gal doesn't want to look in the mirror and say "Dang! I look good!" At SheKnows, we know you want to put your best face forward so our team of Beauty and Style experts have set out to uncover the best beauty and style tips out there...

Be you... Be Confident

Confidence is all a state of mind -- you are as sexy and beautiful as you think you are. If you're not feeling oh-so-sexy these days, there are a few things you can do to ramp up your self-confidence. Here are 10 tips sure to help boost your ego.

Get moving

When you exercise your body releases endorphins into your brain to make you feel good. Plus becoming toned and trim never harmed anyone's self esteem.


Look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself that you look great, that you feel great and that it's going to be a great day. You may not believe it at first but eventually you will and your confidence will grow.

You are what you eat

It's a bit of a cliché, but it's true. If you have a soft spot for greasy food, you'll end up feeling greasy. Replace it with vegetable, fruit and vitamin-rich meals and as your well-being improves, so will your confidence.

Pump positive tunes

Music has an amazing ability to bring out positive emotions, so find a tune that makes you feel good and play it loud.

Pamper yourself

How can you expect to feel like a goddess if you have knots in your back, patchy skin and a whole lot of anxiety on your mind? Treat yourself to a bath, a massage or even just some time out to read a book.

Strut your stuff

Every girl should have at least one piece of clothing that makes her feel good. So pull out that sexy bra, pair of heels or fabulous earrings and get your strut on!

Girls' night out

Friends see you for the beautiful, sexy woman that you are and are very adept at making you realize it. So give them a call and bask in their compliments.

The mane attraction

A change is as good as a holiday, and no change is quite as good as a haircut. A new look will allow you to unveil a new side of yourself so get to a stylist and tell them to make you look like the sexy siren you are.

Retail therapy

The name exists for a reason. Sometimes flexing the plastic on great shoes, lingerie, clothes, bedding or whatever it is that makes you feel good is just what you need to feel sexy.

Just dance

Dancing is sexy. It just is. So for a confidence boost enroll in some salsa, hip-hop or tango lessons. Or go out on a limb and try something a little more risqué -- like belly dancing or pole dancing.
