No matter if we were born with a pretty face or not, all of us girls want to look good and attractive. Not only to men, but to feel good about ourselves.
How can you make your face more attractive? There are a few tricks, or better to say just simple every day routine you can apply in your life in order to make your face more attractive, healthy and glowing.
How To Make Your Face More Attractive
All of these steps are things I personally use, not just something from textbooks. Some of these tips are well-known but I have to repeat them, because they are the basics and you just can’t skip them. To be honest, it took me many, many years to get to the point where I started to be really happy with my look and feel attractive. One of the tips is really a special hack so be sure you read all the way down till the end.
PART I: SKIN
Tip No. 1: Soft massage
Give your face a soft massage every morning. I do something believed to be lymphatic massage in order to improve the blood and lymph flow every morning before I get up.
You just start in the middle of your forehead, sliding with both hands downwards and ending under the cheekbones next to your lips.
When you finish, your skin is pink and looks healthy.
Tip No. 2: Pamper Your Skin
Use the best ingredients for your skin. Retinol, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, matrixyl 3000, these skincare substances have proven effects that can wipe several years off your face and the velvety feeling when you touch your face is priceless.
Always wear a sunscreen. Sun rays are nice but they make our skin age. A few lines from smiling (the famous crows feet) are ok but too many wrinkles are not very attractive. We don’t want to look older than we really are, right?
Tip No. 3: Wear Suitable Foundation Or Primer
I am not saying that every woman has to wear makeup. If you have perfect complexion and all of your face has the same color, you might do without. But to be honest, I don’t know anyone who would not look better with a light primer, foundation or BB cream on. Honestly.
The foundation or BB cream unifies the color of your skin and if you use a very light one that matches your natural complexion, you will look much healthier and glowing than without it.
Tip No. 4: Use Flattering Makeup Tricks
Find your personal way how to underline the features in your face, a makeup that suits you well. I’m not a fan of one-for-all tips. Some experts say a red lipstick is always good. I don’t think so, it really doesn’t suit everyone.
Same with black eyeliners used around the entire eyes. If you have small eyes, this will make them look even smaller.
On the other hand, finding how to do your makeup in a way that it’s flattering can make you look 100% better than without it.
Less is usually better than more. Especially if you are 40+ and have some signs of aging, putting too much make up on might even make you look older.
PART II: YOUR MIND
Tip No. 5: Gratitude
Think of all the things you can be grateful for. This tip might seem like it has nothing to do with a question how to make your face more attractive, but believe me, it does.
When you ask yourself a question „What can I be grateful for?,“ you will find out there are many things.
Do you have a house/flat you can live in?
Then you are better off than many homeless people.
Do you have eyes and ears so you can read and listen?
Then you are better off than many disabled people.
Do you have work that provides you with money?
Then you are better off than many who don’t.
This way, you can find many blessings in you life.
I am grateful every day that I have a house to live in, I can do what I love, buy what I need and have a loving partner (and a loving dog).
If you make this a habit, you will be happier with your life. You will be more positive, thus attracting more positive things into your life. The happier you are, the better you look. The beauty shines from the inside.
Tip No. 6: Expect The Best
Never think that you are not lucky, you have a hard life etc. We all have had some bad experience in life, no exceptions. But there is always something to look forward to, and trust life. Trust the universe that you will get the best.
I used to worry about money a lot in the past. One of my best friends told me a sentence I will never forget:
„The universe always has your back.“
I started saying that to myself until I got it under my skin. When you think about it, there really is nothing to worry about. Do animals worry about their future? Does your dog worry?
PART III: BODY
Tip No. 7: Sweat
Walking, jogging, biking, skiing, swimming, all this makes us sweat. These sports are aerobic activities that are good for weight loss as well, but they also make us look more attractive.
Aerobic activities that make us sweat provide the skin with more oxygen and promote collagen production. That’s why we get the healthy pink color every time we work out.
Sex has similar effects. After all, it is physical exercise, too.
Exercise can provide antioxidant protection and increase blood flow, which can protect our skin and delay signs of aging.
Dermatologist Ellen Marmur, MD, says to WebMD:
By increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells and keep them vital. “Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to working cells throughout the body, including the skin. By increasing blood flow, a bout of exercise helps flush cellular debris out of the system. You can think of it as cleansing your skin from the inside.”
Tip No. 8: Practice Yoga
This tip is actually good both for the body and for the mind.
Stretching your muscles increases your flexibility and also improves your posture.
Your posture is more important than you might think. It makes you look younger and you feel more confident. That increases attractiveness a lot.
In addition, yoga can be a sweating experience too!
Vinyasa flow or power yoga requires a great deal of stamina and can add up to your sports activities.
Yoga can also calm your mind. When you focus on the exercises and stay in the present moment, it gives your mind a mental break.
„Research has shown that people who practice yoga regularly have low cortisol levels.
Studies have also found that practicing yoga for at least 3 months may lower cortisol and perceived stress and reduce pro-inflammatory cytokines that cause inflammation.“ Medical News Today
Tip No 9: Wear Colors That Suit You
You would be surprised how many people do not wear color that complement their skin color. But it is much more important than what brand are you wearing.
For instance, if you are „winter color type,“ you look great in snow white, but when you put cream color on, you look grey and even ill.
There are always warm and cool shades of every color. So if you wear wrong shades, no matter what brand and how expensive, you have no chance to look as good as if you wear the color that is flattering for you.
If you have never heard of color analysis or still don’t know what hues suit you, here is something I found online that gives a nice overview: Color Analysis – Finding Your Type
In this short video, you can also get guidance on how to choose clothes, gemstones and makeup that suit you.
Tip No. 10: Smile and enjoy life
People who can enjoy life are always attractive because the happiness and joy they feel can be perceived by the people. The positive vibes spread and are contagious.
Making jokes, smiling and being happy does affect our looks more than we would think. That sparkle in the eye can’t be pretended.
If you really want to look attractive, do your best, but do not worry about it too much. Just be happy, laugh a lot and enjoy life!
