It’s February and love is in the air. Heart shaped chocolates, flowers, and Valentine’s Day decorations flood the aisles of our favorite stores. Whether you’re in a relationship or single, the season of love is unavoidable. So why not show yourself some love too? Studies show practicing self-love boosts confidence, improves mental health, and promotes a positive self-image.

Check out these tips on how you can love yourself first:

  • Start with your smile. A clean and healthy smile can make a great first impression and make you feel amazing. Keep your smile fresh with our fan-favorite Plackers® Micro-Mint flossers and start your journey to self-love by falling in love with your smile.
  • Look good, feel good. It can be hard not to drown our bodies in sweatpants and oversized sweaters, especially in these cold winter months. Try picking an outfit you wouldn’t normally wear and staying in it for a full day. Then, do the same thing the next day. You’d be surprised at how much rocking a new style can positively affect your self-image.
  • Practice beauty from the inside, out. At the end of the day, self-love is about achieving a positive state of mind. Cut out the comparisons, put physical traits aside, and give yourself the credit you deserve!
