Manis and Pedis and Makeup Galore

One of the most beautiful assets a woman has is her confidence. A woman with confidence is much more beautiful than a woman without confidence. Confidence makes a woman look more gorgeous and come across to others as more beautiful; a woman with confidence is one that appears to have it all. A woman with confidence holds her head higher, her shoulders back and she exudes something that other women cannot put their fingers on and everyone notices. Confident women are just more attractive. Additionally, confident women have an easier time facing their troubles because they are confident that they will pull through a difficult time and land on their feet.

One time when a woman needs her confidence the most is when she is undergoing cancer treatments. When a woman is diagnosed with a rare form of cancer such asmesothelioma or a common form like breast cancer, she needs her confidence to help her get through the process of being treated. Any treatment for any can be very difficult on a person’s body. An individuals will need all the confidence and help they can get. Feeling beautiful is one way a woman can regain the confidence she loses when she is diagnosed with cancer. Beauty is something that makes women feels good about themselves; when a woman feels good about herself she feels more confident. When she feels good about herself her entire quality of life is improved; quality of life is very important when it comes to dealing with and overcoming cancer.

When a woman with cancer wants to feel more beautiful and more confident it will consequently make her feel better and more optimistic about her cancer treatments. She should try some new things, or get back to the things she once used to have the time to do. Taking time out to relax and have a manicure and pedicure is a great way a woman can feel more beautiful and more confident. Being pampered automatically improves a woman’s mood. When being pampered, we really feel good about our self. Pick out those glamorous daring colors and feel confident! From burnt orange to midnight blue…from matte to shinny...find a color that speaks to you!


With gorgeous hands and feet, a woman might feel like she needs a new pair of shoes to go with her pedicure. How better to show off her gorgeous toes than with a pair of your favorite shoes! Additionally, when she goes shopping to find those gorgeous shoes after her manicure and pedicure, she can pick up some new makeup. Glam it up another notch—who said dress up was only for kids? When you look good, you feel good! Take a day for yourself to indulge.
Wearing organic makeup or nail polish products are helpful and not harmful; not only is she doing something good for the environment by wearing organic makeup, she is actually helping her skin in the process. The all-natural ingredients in organic makeup will have women feeling refreshed and their confidence level will be through the roof despite of an ugly diagnosis. Start your path to wellness with the little things that may have been forgotten.
