Good morning everyone, today’s post is about the little things we can do to help with our appearances. I mean we all want to look and feel our best. While our appearance isn’t the most important thing in our lives, there’s no denying that it can have an impact on how we feel about ourselves and our overall enjoyment of the world. While you’ll never be able to change your genetics, there are things you can do that’ll nudge your appearance in the right direction. It’s all about making the most of the resources and knowledge that we can all access. In this post, we’ll take a look at some useful tips that’ll have you looking at your best before you know it.
DRESS FROM THE BOTTOM UP
When it comes to their outfits, most people focus on what’s going on with the top part of their body. After all, this is the area that people see the most, right? While a standout top will always do the trick, it’s more important to focus on what’s going on with the bottom half of your body. If your feet and legs are dressed well, then you’ll be onto a winner — it’s this area that makes the outfit. Think of it like a painting: the bottom half of your body is the frame that really lets the star of the show (the painting/your awesome top) shine brightly.
If you want to look your best, then take care of your skin. We all know how much better we look when our skin is looking healthy and fresh, as opposed to tired and grey. While there is some genetics that comes into play when it comes to your skin, it’s one of the areas of your body that’s more in your control than you might think. Eating well, limiting the toxins that you consume, and avoiding things that damage the skin (such as overly hot showers and the sun) are all key. If you can work up a sweat and then take a cold shower, you’ll find that you’ve got healthy and alert skin all day.
Posture isn’t something that many people think about, but which all people should. In this day and age, when we’re all sitting down more than we should, a lot of us have posture problems and don’t even realise it. While you might not notice the effects in your physical well-being early on, at some point, you’ll begin to feel pain in your back and neck. But let’s just focus on the impact it has on your appearance for the time being. We all look better when we’re standing tall, there’s just no getting around it. Incorrect posture is easier to identify in photographs; do you have a hunched appearance? If so, take steps to correct things. There are some excellent YouTube yoga tutorials that can help you.
A haircut is not just a haircut. The quality can vary widely, depending on who’s cutting your hair. If it’s been a while since you’ve had a cut or just think your hair could be better, look at visiting a new salon. As with many things in life, it’s often worthwhile spending a little more on your hair than you would normally spend, since it can have such a big impact on your appearance.
CLOTHES AND ACCESSORIES
Dressing well plays a big role in looking your best. While it’ll take time to develop your sense of style, there’s one thing that you can always do: buy good clothing. There’s a temptation to buy the cheapest clothing available to us, but it’s nearly always worthwhile spending a little more to get a good item. It’ll help turn a ‘good outfit’ into a ‘great outfit.’ As well as your clothes, think about your accessories. If you wear glasses, then get a pair that’s more fashionable as well as functional; https://www.eyeglasses.com/ has a large collection of stylish frames to choose from. You’ll find that as well as helping you to see, your glasses can be an awesome fashion accessory too!
WALKING WITH SMILES AND CONFIDENCE
Finally, remember the number one rule for looking great: having confidence! Walking confidently and with a smile really does make a difference. Without it, you’re never fully dressed. Of course, confidence is something that can be annoyingly elusive, but there are things you can do to help. Perhaps the most important aspect is to figure out what could be holding your confidence back in the first place. Once you’ve replaced them with more positive actions, you’ll find that your confidence is sky-high.
