How to feel more confident about your body – and learn to accept it… daily.

Hello everyone, it’s Helen and today I wanted to write a post about body confidence and how to not only like, maybe even love, but CELEBRATE your body in exactly the way that it is in this moment.

Life is so short, cliche I know, but actually, one fact that we can all be sure of. And so many of us spend so much of our lifetime, criticizing and moaning about the current ‘state’ of our bodies.

I get asked a lot by my clients, how I manage to feel good about my body, and I tell them that I too have my down days, of course I do, I am only human. But I made an active choice one day, to get up and show up and to like myself – daily.

You see, body confidence and confidence in general, is nothing more than a mindset.

Yes, there are tweaks and things that we can do to look better on the outside, but have you ever seen those stories, of people who spend a fortune on surgery only to still FEEL unhappy?

So, today, I thought that I would share with you, MY viewpoint on body confidence, and how YOU can begin to cultivate it.  Which leads me to my first point, which is that confidence, is an inside out job – and you need to work at it daily.

Confidence is an inside out job – and you need to work on it daily.

Confidence isn’t something that comes naturally to most of us. It is an inside out job, and it is something that we need to cultivate on a daily basis. Have you ever met a woman who just seems to ooze confidence and you wonder ‘does she EVER have a down day?’ or is she just naturally blessed like that?

Chances are, she knows that she has to put in the mindset work, every day, and has made the active choice at some point in her life, to accept and LOVE her body.

Challenge: Every morning when you get up, make an active choice to look in the mirror, and regardless of any lumps, bumps, scars and wrinkles, say out loud to yourself ‘I bloody love my body!’. Have a little dance, make this fun, laugh, be light hearted about this. Jiggle that belly, wobble those breasts, and thank the Universe that you made it though to another day!

Your body is going to change so you’ve got to learn to accept that.

Have you ever had an image in your head, about how you want to look, and it’s like you put all of your time and energy into focusing on that, and then when you get there, something else has gone a bit skewiff, and you suddenly switch your focus onto that thing?

It’s like a lifelong game of ‘chase the perfect body’. Thing is ladies, your body is going to change, on a daily basis it changes, and there is not much that we can do about it. Well….. I smile there of course, because there ARE things that we can do about it, but even the best aesthetic treatments in the world cannot STOP the ageing process.

So at some point, hard as it may feel, we have to simply make a choice one day (and today is as good a day as any) to say ‘okay, this body is only here for a certain period, so I am going to hug it, and love it, and make the most of it, and celebrate every line, and every wrinkle – because those make your body bespoke and unique!

Make sure that the inside and the outside are on the same wavelength.

Aesthetic treatments are brilliant because they can help you stay looking (and feeling) like YOU – for longer. I would not be running my Clinic if I did not understand the power of this. However – I also refuse to treat women who come to me with such severe confidence issues (or even body dysmorphia) that they hope that an aesthetic procedure will be THE answer for them.

YES it can help you feel good. YES I wholly stand by. BUT – you need to also be working on the INSIDE, and if your insides don’t match your outside, then it’s just a matter of time before you crumble.

Therefore, I am on a mission to spread the word to women, about the importance of self care, YOU time #justforyou, and looking after their mindset in general. I feel that this element has been lacking in the aesthetics industry for some time now, and it’s my DUTY to try and correct this.

As you may have seen, I recently launched my first book titled ‘Your Best Kept Secret’, and I am also in the process of redefining my treatment process. This is because I want things to become more bespoke. I want you to connect to YOU again, and this requires something that goes far deeper than something aesthetic. But when combine aesthetics with a confident mindset – my God, absolutely ANYTHING is possible!

Helen’s final thoughts….

Body confidence, and confidence in general is a mindset and only YOU can choose to create it. So, let me know over on Facebook what your thoughts are on this, and know that I have some really exciting things coming in the pipeline to help us all work on body confidence!

As always, I’d love for you to come and chat to us, over on our Facebook Page, and if you’d like to come in and talk to me about any areas on your body where that you’d like to work on aesthetically, please book a consultation with me, or feel free to send me a message here.

What I will say though, is that be warned – just as I love and adore helping women to like what they see on the outside, as a side effect of working with me, you will also learn to yourself on the inside. Sorry, I can’t help it! It’s just all part and parcel of all that is Taylormade.

Until the next time, have a wonderful weekend, whatever you are doing, and remember – go dance in front of that mirror and shout ‘I bloody love this body!’.

Take Care,

Helen Signature

Permanent Cosmetics Eyebrows

3 ways that Eyebrows can change your life.

3 ways that Eyebrows can change your life. 1280 681 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

How permanent cosmetics can be life changing, by Helen Taylor.

Hello, it’s Helen and today I wanted to talk about the 3 ways that I believe that enhancing your eyebrows can change your life.

There are different methods to achieve the optimum brow shape. Permanent cosmetics can be used on the eye area (brows and liner) and also on the lip area. Whether you know it as microblading, semi permanent makeup or even permanent makeup, one thing is for sure – the effects that permanent cosmetics and great looking eyebrows has on the women who come to see me– are  life changing.  Here’s why:

You look like your best self – daily.

You wake up to make up and look like your best self, daily. Let’s be honest, most of us prefer the way that we look when we are wearing makeup.

Now, you can wake up, looking and feeling like the best version of you, and what’s more, you look the same, daily.

If you have ever spent hours trying to recreate yesterday’s perfect eyebrow look you will understand what I am saying here. Permanent cosmetics can take the daily worry out of great looking eyebrows.

You save time and that’s priceless.

Who doesn’t want to save time in the morning, when getting ready? How much time a woman spends on applying her brows for example, in the morning, can naturally vary greatly – but I have worked with women who are exasperated and riddled with anxiety, because they get up at something like 4 in the morning, to meticulously apply their eyebrows. Just gaining that extra time in bed, and finding themselves free of the mental load, can honestly be totally life changing!

You can look (and feel) like yourself again if ill health has got the better of you.

Ill health, such as vitamin deficiencies, thyroid conditions, and treatments such as chemotherapy, can mean that hair loss can occur for some women, and this can obviously affect their confidence. If this has been the case for you, then having for example, your eyebrows enhanced can mean that you feel like you are taking back the control again, and this is really powerful.

It may seem like a cosmetic enhancement procedure, but for some, taking this step when they are undergoing chemotherapy, can mean that they develop a fighting spirit, that puts them back in the driver’s seat and helps towards fighting cancer.

Whatever it is that has you considering a treatment with myself or the team, we would be more than happy to welcome you into the clinic. To find out more about the treatments that we offer, head here.

Until the next time, have a wonderful weekend, and I will speak to you next week, feel free to send us a message or call us on: 0800 690 6871 if you have any questions about permanent cosmetics or any treatments on our treatment menu (which you can download here).

The perfect treatments for end-of-summer blues

The perfect treatments for end-of-summer blues 1943 1200 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

The skies might be grey, but your skin doesn’t have to be. Thanks to our interest free finance packages, you can hold onto that holiday glow all year round with a range of advanced aesthetic treatments

I don’t know about you, but I always feel a bit blah at this time of year – and it’s not just the weather. There’s something about summer holidays that just clears the mind, isn’t there? You strip back everything – from your wardrobe to your make-up routine – to the bare basics. Stress and worry fall by the wayside and you just feel so in the moment, care-free and confident.

Then you get home and before you know it your tan has faded, and so has that invincible I-can-be-anyone-I-want feeling. But what if you could hold onto that holiday glow all year-round? Well, I can’t do anything about the grey skies, I’m afraid, but I can recommend a whole host of beauty tweaks that will keep you feeling sunny whatever the weather.

Holiday skin – all year round

Most of us wear less make-up on holiday because our skin has a natural glow (and, let’s face it, it’ll all wash off in the pool anyway). Permanent cosmetics can help you achieve that simplicity long after you’ve packed away your passport. Microblading, for example, is an advanced technique that creates realistic brows, hair by hair. No scary drawn-on-looking brows, just beautifully defined ones that transform the whole face, without the need for a bulging make-up bag! And, best of all, the treatment lasts up to 2 years, so you can bin your brow pencil and still wake up looking on fleek every day #nofilter.

Affordable advanced aesthetics

At Helen Taylor, we also offer a number of advanced aesthetic treatments, from PDO Thread Lifting, non-surgical eyelid tightening or rejuvenating peels, that will transform your looks and restore that I just-stepped-off-the-beach glow.

Interest free finance packages = affordable treatments for all

While your summer holiday might have cost an arm and a leg, you’ll be amazed at just how affordable all our treatments are. At Helen Taylor we offer a number of interest free finance packages that can be tailored to your beauty budget.

Treat yourself today!..

and don’t forget to check out my new Dear Helen vlog, in which I answer all your pressing beauty questions.

Now, go pour yourself a piña colada – and put the heating on!
