Getting a glow up is a great way to give yourself a confidence boost through some extra self-care, and with it being all over social media it’s natural to want to do it! Some glow ups can get pretty pricey, but there are a lot of things you can do to look and feel better without breaking the bank. It gives your current self-care practice a little boost, and with small additions you can give yourself the feel of that extra boost.

Here are a few things you can do for whole body self-care:


It can be overwhelming with all the different skincare products and methods out there, but with a simple boost you can give your skin a little extra TLC. Keep things simple and effective, with just essential products like a good cleanser and a few top-quality products. If you don’t already have a moisturizer and a vitamin C serum that will brighten your complexion, invest in high-quality options for these products and your skin will feel the difference.

Also, educate yourself! There is a lot of skincare tips and advice out there and it is all free. For example, check out these Blue Lagoon skincare tips, precious advice from the world-famous spa in Iceland. The more you know, the more you can try and keep an eye out for when your skin may need some adjustments.


With just a couple steps, you can give your hair an instant glow-up. Start with a trim for your split ends and do an intensive hair mask. You can DIY your split ends trim at home and even make a hair mask at home with simple ingredients like coconut oil. You can create your hair moisturizing pill in bulk and seal it with gorgeous custom cosmetics packaging to save it for future use. When you’re ready for those days where you want that glow up feel, take the time to style it and you’ll get that confident boost knowing your hair looks great. It doesn’t have to be anything drastic, even just styling your hair in an intentional up-do can feel beautiful.


When it comes to taking care of your body, workout consistently, get some fresh air when you can, and a light fake tan can really give your skin a new fresh look.


Boost your smile by giving your teeth a little more attention. Stay on top of your regular cleaning and you can use a teeth whitener as you like.

Updating your wardrobe is another way to glow up! And the best part is you don’t have to spend a lot to do this. Start by clearing out and organizing your closet, dropping off donations, and go thrifting while you’re out! Organizing your current pieces to love them even more is free and you can affordably add some new favorites by thrifting or doing a clothes swap with friends.
