Want to to know some tricks on how to make yourself feel more confident and attractive? Then read on.
Attractiveness doesn’t always come down to physical beauty which some studies have shown believe it or not. Attractiveness goes beyond having that perfect smile, that perfect body and that red hot gorgeous lipstick.
You don’t have to feel 100% all the time, we all have our good days and bad days but if you are feeling bad about yourself more than good then it is time for a shift in your perspective.
I will give you several science-backed habits that will increase your self-confidence, which in turn can help you look and feel more attractive.
Despite common thinking, I believe that feeling more attractive and desirable has little to do with your outward appearance.
1-Give some compliments
Give compliments and love to those around you. Receiving love from others might seem like the easiest way to boost your self image, but actually giving some love first is the way forward in feeling more attractive.
Talking up good traits about others will help you seem more appealing in their eyes and make you realise the good things about yourself, too. ‘’Researchers at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China suggested in a 2016 study that men who used metaphors to compliment women were found to be more attractive.’’
2- Don’t underestimate the power of a good smile
Smiling makes you seem warm and inviting to other people, which helps how they see you. Smiling at yourself in the mirror seems to also be the way to make yourself look attractive to others.
“As social creatures, we are programmed to notice the body language of others and scan for cues of safety and welcome,” relationship therapist, educator, and author Shadeen Francis said. “Smiling is a universal signal for warmth and attractiveness”.
3-Don’t self sabotage
We are all guilty of this I am sure and we do it without realising it unless someone points it out to us.
Those that dwelled on negative thoughts about themselves or always put themselves down were found to have a greater risk of self-doubt and lower satisfaction levels as per a study from the National Institutes of Health. If you find yourself doing this, you need to find out why and only then you can work on turning them into positive thoughts.
4-Laugh it off
Having a sense of humour and cracking a joke or two can make others see you as more attractive. Laughing and joking can make you more at ease and can make you see yourself in a positive light. Those with serious personalities have this translated onto their faces. Alex Reddle, an online dating specialist, said, ”it is perfectly okay to be imperfect — no one has to be perfect all of the time. It is important not to let others define you and to just be you.”
5-Red for hot personality
Having a wardrobe that makes you feel better about your looks will instantly make you feel more attractive. A study from the university of Rochester suggests that ”wearing red can automatically make women more attractive to men. They were more likely in the study to ask out a woman wearing a red shirt than one in green.
You might also want to have a nose at this. Being motivated in turn makes you feel successful and happy which in turn boots your confidence.
