Attraction is what gets everyone going. How you present yourself in public means a lot, no matter if you are a man or a woman. If you want to meet someone, there is a bigger chance that you will if you look attractive. I am not saying that looks are all that matters, but like it or not, the first impression is what matters the most, and a big part of what kind of impression you make is based on your appearance. That first impression that you make will help someone decide does he (or she) want to spend more time with you. We cannot choose how we look, but you can control what you have and use it to your advantage. Here are some of the things that you can do.
Men: Wash your hair every other day. When it comes to men, I advise you not to complicate too much with your hairstyle. A good clean and neat haircut is what you need. If you are balding, then there is not much you can do, simply shave your head and make up for the lack of your hair by growing a beard, but of course do not neglect it, trim regularly and shape it to suit your looks best.
Women: first of all, what you need to do is to take proper care of your hair. Go to the store and find the right products for your hair. Good hair is very important for women and it is their trademark in a way, so if you damage it, you will not be able to get the wanted result. After you have taken proper care of your hair, visit a hairdresser and get a hairstyle that you think might look good on you. Of course, you should consult with both your friends and your hairdresser first.
This is important for both women and men. Smiling can have a positive effect on the person you want to notice you, but don't overdo it, you don't want people to think that you are awkward. That's why you must take care of your oral hygiene properly; this includes regular brushing, flossing and dentist visits. Some people have naturally yellow teeth no matter how much they take care of them. If you are one of these people, you can take care of this by having your teeth whitened.
Keep your body in shape
If you are having problems with your weight, then I suggest you start working on it immediately. No one likes people with weight problems; sorry but this is the hard truth. Start working out at least two to three times a week. You can go to the gym or do sports, which ever you prefer. Not only that you will be more attractive, but it will also benefit your health, both mental and physical. You will feel better about yourself and have more confidence when meeting new people.
Shower regularly. Showering at least once a day is highly advisable. By showering, you wash away any dust and filth deposits from your body; it also removes any nasty smells. Put a deodorant every time you go out, but don't think that a deodorant can replace showering. If you do not shower and put on a deodorant, the bad smell and deodorant will mix and this will not be pleasant at all. Clip your nails regularly and clean them, if you are a woman, use nail polish to make your nails look nice and you can also match the color of nails with your styling.
Wear clothes that match your body
You cannot wear the same kind of clothes your friend does (not always anyway). Choose clothes that emphasize your qualities in order to make your body look more attractive even though you haven't really changed. Choose darker colors for parts of your body that you don't like and lighter for those that you think are more attractive. Of course, try to match colors as best as you can.
These are some basic advices for how to get the most out of your looks. In my opinion, the key is to be yourself and develop your own style.
