Exercising your friendship muscle is always beneficial, and is necessary from time to time. Sometimes in order to show our friends how much we care, we need to let them know we’re there for them no matter what. If your friend has been through a rough time lately or is simply showing signs of low self-esteem about their style, helping them with the way they dress or groom can yield huge results for their life optimism.
This isn’t to say you should force a new wardrobe or lifestyle on someone, but subtly asking if you’d like to go shopping or go for a spontaneous makeover might be just what they need. Of course, just helping someone with a new style might not solve problems they’re facing, but it will let you know that you care about the way they feel day-to-day, and that’s important.
Follow this handy guide to help your beauty-unconscious friend feel like a million dollars.
- Go For A Spa Day
Beauty needn’t be a chore! Sometimes a spa day completed with manicures and pedicures is an amazing way to catch up and fully relax them for the rest of the points on this list. You can often find good deals for two friends attending the same spa, so be sure to make use of it and see what good your relaxing day out can accomplish!
- Help Them With Their Smile
Give your friend a genuine reason to smile by taking them to a specialist dentist and getting their teeth whitened. Make it a point that this is for the purpose of helping them smile about life, and they’ll more often than not get the point and go along with it, as well as thanking you for your efforts.
You can find frequently asked questions about teeth whitening here. It’s been proven that a better smile leads to happier moods, so with this, you’re showing your friend you’re always there to make them feel better. Plus you’ll both look fantastic at the end of it.
- Go To The Gym Together
Going to the gym together is an amazing way to feel better and fit your clothes in a shapely way. You’ll be less likely to neglect a session because neither of you will want to let the other down, but you’ll also find it easier to get through a gruelling session on the treadmill if your friend is there. This is a great way to naturally improve their confidence and show that you’re there through thick and thin!
- Take Them To A Salon
Sometimes a makeover is required, sometimes a new haircut is all it takes. Going to a salon helps you get among experts, as the staff will be well versed in all things beauty. Even if you’re the most style-focussed person, the opinion of someone who works in that field can be invaluable. It’s also a great time to have a good chat with your friend and feel incredible after you leave.
For the most part being a good friend is about being present, but showing you care in more tangible ways never goes to waste. They will thank you for being a super friend often, and maybe return the favor one day!
