Of course, looks aren’t everything, but it’s fair to say that most of us want to look our best. Feeling confident and knowing you look good can make you happier and give you the boost you need to get out there and achieve your highest potential. After all, what you present on the outside is what the world sees. Therefore, making a good impression and feeling happy and content with the way you look is definitely important. If you’re in a bit of a rut and want to make a change in your appearance, here’s how you can go about it.
Visit The Dentist
Visiting a cosmetic dentist is one of the most important things you can do to improve your appearance. Everyone’s perception of beauty is different, but something that just about everyone would agree on is that straight, white and healthy teeth are an attractive asset. You can get your existing teeth whitened or have veneers fitted. You can also look into different options for braces if your teeth are crooked. Whatever it is, improving your smile is an excellent way to improve your overall appearance and look more attractive.
Get Your Hair Done
How long have you had the same hair color or style? A color that looked good on you ten years ago might not be doing you any favors today. Very extreme or statement shades can enhance any signs of aging and make you look older than you are. Of course, it all comes down to your personal opinion, and if your hair color makes you feel great, you should go for it regardless of the "rules"! However, if you’re ready for a change, a hairdresser can show you what colors would work best for you. It’s all about matching your hair color with your skin's undertones and the color of your eyes. Most people will look best with a shade that’s within two shades of their natural hair color (so up to two shades lighter or darker). A flattering cut and a conditioning treatment would also leave your hair nice and shiny and looking it's best.
Choose Clothes That Flatter Your FigureDressing for comfort on some days is fine, however if you wear your comfy and slouchy clothes all the time, it’s probably not doing much for your confidence! Dressing in a way that flatters your figure without being too slouchy or too revealing is the best. Find out what your body shape is and learn what kind of clothes would suit you the best.
Shape UpUse a BMI calculator to figure out your ideal weight range and do your best to get there. Not only will it protect against a range of preventable diseases, but as it’s your healthiest weight range, it will allow you to look your best too. Find an exercise regime you enjoy - it doesn’t have to be powering through your workout the gym or running in the cold at 6 am. You could go swimming, join a sports team or even exercise at home. Eating healthy and exercising will also make you feel energized, improve your confidence and make you look your best too.
