The easiest way to look beautiful every day is to have confidence in yourself. Stand tall, believe in yourself and smile – these are the three basic ingredients that are sure to make you look fantastic with or without makeup. Additionally, the following 10 indispensable tips will help you look attractive, no matter your age.
1. Take care of your skin and hair
These are the first things people notice about you. So make sure you eat healthy and drink tons of water. Following steps can also help:
- Take a multivitamin pill
- Exercise daily
- Beat stress
2. Use sunscreen every day
This is the basic step to prevent sun damage and keep your skin looking youthful and radiant. Sunscreen should ideally contain SPF 30+. Remember, you UV damage could occur even when you are indoors or in a car. So wear a sunscreen daily, no matter what!
3. Keep your body hydrated
Dry, dehydrated skin will cause you to get a prematurely aged look. So drink plenty of fluids and this does not include sodas, caffeinated beverages etc. Avoid sodium rich foods that cause the body to retain moisture giving you a puffy, bloated look. So drink 8 glasses of water daily to flush out toxins.
4. Limit alcohol and nicotine
Alcohol and nicotine are the worst ingredients for beauty. If you want to retain your youthful, radiant skin, learn to say no to alcohol and tobacco.
5. Learn to apply basic makeup
Even if you are not too fond of makeup, you must at least use a basic moisturizer, and foundation.
6. Wear clothes that suit you
Find out latest styles but instead of chasing trends, wear what suits you. If you are unsure, ask your friends for their honest opinion. You could even take some photos in different clothes to determine what styles and colors look attractive on you. Update your wardrobe every few years-whatever suited you in your 20s and 30s may not suit you in your 40s and so on. The same is true about hair style, hair color and makeup. Try and make changes in these areas to adapt to the changes taking place in your body.
7. Flaunt your best features
Use what God gave you. May be it is your voice, your eyes or your sharp wit. Use your sex appeal. Ladies, this is the easiest way to stay attractive to your man: if he likes your legs, wear dresses that help show them off.
8. Stay well groomed always
Good hygiene is sexy. Keep your hair, skin and nails in great condition. Wear a deodorant-no one likes a stinky person. And fix those teeth: broken, discolored teeth look unattractive. Visit a dentist for a regular cleaning and opt for treatments that can give you a flawless smile.
9. Ask for help
If it has been a while since you updated your hair or makeup, you could visit the departmental store makeup counters to ask for recommendations. You could even try our wigs before making a hair appointment. This will help you choose a style you love and one that suits you.
10. Show your inner beauty
It is not just what’s on the outside that matters. Show your inner beauty by helping others and being kind. Smile and laugh a lot-people love happy individuals; no one likes complainers. Outer beauty can also be enhanced once you have practiced being beautiful on the inside.
