If you were asked what “confidence” means to you, what would you say? By definition, to be confident is to have self-belief in oneself and one’s power and abilities. But where does this feeling come from?
We had the pleasure of working with i-on Magazine to explore the notion of confidence with 4 inspirational women: Carol Smillie, Amanda Hamilton, Ebony Dee Cheyne and Zara Janjua.
Confident from outside in
In September, our first sponsored feature in i-on magazine featured one of TVs most popular presenters, Carol Smillie. I-on asked Carol what confidence meant to her…
“For me, confidence is all about feeling great within yourself. But what you wear and how you look on the outside is also a huge contributing factor to how you feel inside” - Carol Smillie
It’s natural to have insecurities, but if we have the power to take control of these insecurities in some way, perhaps this will give ourselves the boost we need to carry on more confidently.
Non-invasive treatments to tackle anything that’s been bugging you - whether it be rosacea, thread veins or pigmentation, can help to elevate your confidence significantly! Feeling positive about one's appearance is one of many important factors contributing to a person's overall confidence.
Nurturing ourselves on the inside is just as important (if not more!) than the outside. Eating correctly and healthily will allow your body to function at it's best.
October’s issue of i-on had the pleasure of Scotland’s own celebrity nutritionist, Amanda Hamilton. Amanda and I have a similar ethos, in that we both believe in results. I believe that skin problems can’t be solved with skincare alone, you need to have a good nutrition plan.
If you’re ever unsure of what you need, take the time to learn from an educated expert. I promise you won’t regret gaining knowledge in what is best for you.
Take a leaf from nature
November’s issue of i-on featured the captivating and inspiring Ebony Dee Cheyne. As a woman who has had a creative and challenging career in Hollywood and has now created a successful business, Ebony is an entrepreneurial individual who understands the importance of knowing who you are and listening to what your body needs.
“Confidence is not about being perfect, you are just you. We can use what nature and modern science has to offer to age gracefully” - Ebony Dee Cheyne
It’s not about putting up a front and dealing with stress alone. We don’t need to push ourselves endlessly through tasks at the expense of our wellbeing. Pressure from society and unobtainable expectations created through the media can make a woman’s life feel more stressful. A little help from old and modern science can help give us a boost, so when choosing solutions make sure you examine the science behind them.
Look after you
December’s issue of i-on featured journalist, producer, comedian and TV presenter Zara Janjua. Her refreshingly honest feature outlines how she handles feelings of low self-esteem and confidence.
“Understanding that you can shape your life is the most empowering feeling... For me, the better I feel, the better I look. Being kind to yourself is so important. You have to be your own best friend in life” - Zara Janjua
