As a fashion and lifestyle blogger, it is my business to look my best at all times. That doesn't just mean wearing stylish clothes, putting on the right accessories, and having impeccable hair and makeup. It also means having the confidence to meet and mingle with people and not just during important events and special occasions. Indeed, nothing is more sexy and attractive than a woman oozing with self-confidence and I think the true test of confidence is being able to face anyone at the most unlikely places and when it is least expected and still be able to carry oneself with loads of poise and charm!

Of course, confidence does not come out of nowhere. It comes from within - an inner knowledge and self-awareness that radiates on the outside. Confidence also doesn't happen overnight. Like most good things, I know it requires hard work and developing good habits.

For instance, I love the confidence that comes from being clean, healthy, and smelling good. They come from healthful habits that have been instilled in us ever since we were kids - taking care of our skin and body. That's right! Sometimes, we forget how plain and simple good hygiene can do a lot to boost our confidence.
It's a great feeling when you feel clean, sexy, and confident!

I've learned that a couple of twice-a-week habits can bring rewards in the beauty and health department and boost one's confidence. One such habit I've been practicing for some time now is scrubbing and exfoliating. Doing it twice a week keeps my skin soft and supple and gives it a youthful glow. The best thing about having clean, healthy, great-looking skin is that you don't need lots of make up to look pretty, right? What's more is that it gives you the confidence to don clothes that show a bit of skin without worrying about imperfections! Now, what can be sexier than that?

I also like to clean my nails and put on a fresh coat of polish at least twice a week. With my super active lifestyle, my nail polish hardly ever stays in good condition for very long!  And I know what a big confidence clipper it is to have chipped nail polish on some important event! Yikes!

Finally, I use BETADINE® Feminine Wash twice a week. I was introduced to it several months ago as a medicated wash that provides excellent care for women's intimate area. It solves many common feminine issues including itchiness, discomfort, and odors. What's great about it is you don't even need to use it everyday. Just twice weekly is enough to keep you protected from germs and bacteria that can cause infection.

Using BETADINE® Feminine Wash has become a twice-a-week (or everyday during red days) habit for me and I love how it makes me feel clean, healthy, and confident! After all, "clean is the new sexy", right?
