The pressure to look good vs. the judgement for prioritising yourself. Can you ever win?

DONT FEEL BAD FOR WANTING TO LOOK GOOD!

You may have seen the Late Late Show last Friday night, and the segment on botox, lip fillers etc. I did a live video on Facebook to discuss the show and if you haven’t seen it, I will link it below.

Today I want to reflect on the aftermath of the segment and the negativity levelled at the show’s guests on social media.

Something that I have come to realise from talking to so many women over the years in the beauty business is that many women feel guilty about spending time or money on themselves.

Sometimes we feel like we should be happy as we are and not place so much importance on how we look. After all, its what is on the inside that counts, right?

Well I am here to call BS on that line of thought right now! If you are happy with how you look, fantastic! If you look in the mirror and feel that the person looking back at you reflects the person you feel like inside, even better.

But for those who don’t feel that way, please don’t feel bad for wanting to look good! Balancing how you feel inside (25 on a good day, 95 on others lol), with how you look in the mirror, can be a big factor in inner peace and self-confidence.Society places an awful lot of pressure on women to look younger, slimmer, more vital, than ever before. And yet the same society will ridicule and judge a woman for turning to cosmetic surgery or injectables. Enough!

It is not self-indulgent, vain or shallow to want to look the best you can, particularly if looking great boosts your self-esteem and contributes overall to a happy life. There are no medals for ageing slowly. There are equally no medals for getting old looking before you are ready. The prizes in life, I believe, go to those who are happy in their own skin. The prize is contentment and I believe that everybody should do whatever it takes for them to feel content in their life on a daily basis, And if that, for you, means holding back the onset of visible ageing and making peace with your mirror, then that’s what you should do.

My personal preference is to use natural, non-invasive methods of skin age reversal as I prefer a natural look, but what you do is up to you. It is your face, your life, and you owe nobody an explanation! You do you. Your way!

I have been using Mariga’s products for over a year now and am so delighted with them! I have finally cleared up my spots at the age of 32 and my skin looks good. The products are great value and last for ages too. Thanks Mariga!!

I started using Marigas products two years ago. Before I started using Mariga’s products I had dry, sensitive skin which was extremely easily irritated. I had acne also and my face was very red and very painful. A few months after I started using Mariga’s product my skin was clear and two years on I only get the odd hormonal breakout. My skins no longer painful, red or sore. I have never looked back. Mariga’s products are fantastic on my sensitive skin, its now clear and glowing (I don’t need to wear makeup to cover my skin anymore and I am now proud to do it!) Mariga really knows her stuff and she will always go the extra length for her customers. I also find waxperts by Jane a brilliant service. It’s basically pain free and Jane is fantastic also. I cant recommend the products and the services enough, Im very happy with them!

I heard about mariga through a beauty blog, and contacted her at a period when my skin was in dire straits. Hormonal outbreaks of spots had got so bad, it was like being a teenager again. On top of that, my skin looked dull and grotty. I sent mariga photos and details my conerns, and she laid out a plan of action. Now, coming up for a year later, i am delighted with the results. Very quickly my skin settled down so that now I get very few spots, and of much less severity. My skin looks healthy, bright and smooth. I find mariga’s products to be very effective, and good value. Before this, I used a whole range of different things on my skin – various brands and various products. These days, I only use what I get from mariga, and I am very happy with the results.

I first heard about Mariga on a beauty blog and contacted her through her distant client consultation form. She responded quickly and addressed my skincare concerns. As a distant client I find her very helpful if I have any questions. I have travelled down to her salon a few times where I can get a more detailed skin analysis done and indulge in some of her facials. Previously I had spent(wasted) a lot of money on different skincare products. Mariga has helped me find a skincare routine that works for me. I would highly recommend Mariga and her products.

have been using 5 skin essential products for the last 3 months. Since i had a skin consultation with Mariga. When i had my consultation withMariga she discovered that my skin was very dehydrated, red patches on my cheecks, within a month of using the products i could see a major improvement in my skin.

I have been attending Mariga for just over a year now. I have suffered from acne and dull skin all my life but at 29 I found my skin was getting progressively worse to the extent that I would not leave the house without makeup. Since starting Marigas skin care regime my skin is noticeably brighter, smoother and clearer. I recently had a baby and I am now starting a course of peels to help with the scarring and acne. Although I have only had one peel to date the change in my skin is phenomenal. After years of using harsh acne products, various types of the contraceptive pill, duac cream, minox, dalacin t solution (to name a few) and countless over the counter acne treatments and facial cleansers I have finally found a regime that works for me. I am looking forward to continuing with my peels and seeing the improvement in my skin continue. I would definitely recommend a visit to Mariga whatever your skin type is her knowledge and enthusiasm for what she does is fantastic and without doubt she will have your skin glowing!

I started used Skin Essentials over a year ago and am delighted I did so. I previously spent a lot of time and money on so many products and nothing seemed to work for my skin. Mariga gave me great advice, was very thorough and responded quickly. I really felt like I was not just a number. I, as a long distant client, found the service excellent and will hopefully go down to Wexford some day to Skin Esstentials. I am very happy with the routine Mariga has outlined for me and it works. I look forward to placing my next order for her skincare products. Highly recommended!

I’ve been using marigasheedy skin care products for the last few months and very impressed with Mariga and her products. I did the long distance consultation in which Mariga responded with a very concise and honest reply. I also met Mariga shortly after this and was very impressed with everything she told me. Her products are impressive, Mariga is also great for liasing with if you have any queries and questions. My skin has much improved and feels great. Can’t recommend her highly enough.

Since I have become a customer of yours, I have been so happy with the service. Every email I send is responded to immediately with great advice and follow up phone call if needed. I am so happy with the products and each one I try makes an even better improvement to my skin. A tiny bit of product goes such a long way and if you say the product will last 4 months, it lasts 4 months. This skin care range is the best I have come accross so far and I intend to stick with the products. Thanking you for your fantastic service.
