The words “girl boss” can have many different meanings. For us, the title is for all strong, independent women who know what they want and work hard to get their goals. They are women who push themselves to be the best and never settle for anything less than they deserve—may it be in their careers, love lifes, or in the beauty department.
To help all our hardworking females out there achieve the ultimate #girlboss status, we’ve compiled 10 beauty commandments to live by:
Commandment #1: Thou shalt match your foundation with your skin tone.
A girl boss knows the importance of a good foundation (which doesn’t only translate to networks and relationships for when you want to build your own empire). Thankfully, gone are the days when you’re forced to wear the wrong shade of foundation as there’s already a wider range of shades available in the market.
Commandment #2: Thou shalt always apply sunscreen.
Girl bosses are busy with a lot of things, and skin aging is the least of their worries. That’s why regularly applying sun protection is a must!
Commandment #3: Thou shalt not buy products just because they’re in.
A girl boss refuses to be a mere follower, so when it comes to buying beauty products, she knows the difference between a fad and a cult favorite. The former comes fast and fades away easily, while the latter has been tried and tested time and again by many. Tip: Before trying any trend or hype, find out whether a product is compatible to your skin type and lifestyle.
Commandment #4: Thou shalt exfoliate your skin at least once a week.
When things get busy (and a little messy), a true girl boss knows how much a quick refresher can do wonders—and the same goes for the skin! Once or twice a week, get rid of dead skin cells and revive your complexion by exfoliating your face, elbows, and knees.
Commandment #5: Thou shalt never sleep with makeup on.
No matter how long your day has been, sleeping with layers of makeup on is a huge no-no. Make sure to remove all the gunk and thoroughly wash your face before hitting the sack.
Commandment #6: Thou shalt know how to protect your skin.
A girl boss surely knows that having good skin is an important beauty goal. You can perfect your foundation skills, but having a glowing, healthy-looking complexion makes all the difference in this department. A girl boss like you knows not to step out into the sun unprotected and uses products formulated to give you that rosy glow. Try Pond's White Beauty Day Cream with VITAMIN B3+ that whitens from deep within. It also helps protect the skin from sun damage, brightens dark spots, even out skin tone, while providing a natural powder finish that lasts all day. It's the go-to beauty essential of girl bosses Kathryn Bernardo and Nadine Lustre for their camera-ready, glowing skin.
Commandment #7: Thou shalt know when to get rid of clutter.
One of the things that people admire a girl boss for is her bravery. When it comes to beauty, you, too, should not be afraid to let some of the things you once loved go. Bid adieu to items that are past their expiration dates to make room for new and better ones.
Commandment #8: Thou shalt never underestimate the power of a bold lip.
You know a little red lip never hurt anybody! If you’re feeling a bit down or stressed out, swipe on a bold lippie for a stamp of glam, confidence, and authority.
Commandment #9: Thou shalt wash your face twice a day.
Cleansing is the first step of any skincare routine. For pinkish white skin, try Pond’s White Beauty Pinkish White Lightening Facial Foam which cleanses deeply to reduce dullness while boosting the radiance of your skin.
Commandment #10: Thou shalt take care of your skin from within.
A girl boss is beautiful because she knows that real beauty comes from within. Leading a happy, positive life, coupled by maintaining a healthy lifestyle can do wonders on your skin.
By following these commandments, you can be sure to successfully face life’s challenges like a true girl boss, while looking radiantly beautiful inside and out.
