A lot can be said about the type of person who doesn’t care about their appearance; probably, not much in a positive tone. We all know first impressions last, but do we need to say anything else? People judge us by how we look and dress on the outside — it’s just human nature!
If you think that your clothes give off the wrong impression, then maybe it’s time for you to make some changes too. There are so many ways anyone can improve themselves ⏤ physically and mentally ⏤ , and this article will talk about a few easy ways you can win over a few dates from your appearance.
We’ve all heard of the importance of shaving and whatnot. But sometimes, investing in a few grooming tricks can make or break your social life. Check these tricks out:
Trimming Your Beard
So you’re ready to grow that beard out, huh? Maybe you should consider shaving a little of it off every day. Try only to trim the hairs that are far from your face and neck. If you do this, it will give people the opportunity to take notice of your unusual facial features and make them realize how attractive they are! Besides, nobody likes having food stuck in their beard (that’s not something we like to talk about).
Don’t Put Too Much Hair Products
This one is pretty self-explanatory. If you want to look good, then you’ll need to wash your hair often. We all know that greasy hair is an instant turnoff.
If you’re going on a date later that day, make sure your hair is nice and clean by the time you arrive. Don’t overdo it either. There’s nothing worse than a guy with too much product in his hair.
Brush your hair
This should be done before you shampoo your hair, so get to it! When brushing your hair, always start at the bottom and work your way up. Also, make sure to brush any tangles out of your hair early on, so they don’t form later on in the day.
If you have long hair, chances are it’s getting in the way of other people seeing your face. Even if you have short hair, this trick is still definitely worth your time! Getting a haircut will make you look much more professional and put together. And who doesn’t want that?
If you lack time to visit a salon or think you need some trimming, feel free to cut it yourself. Just remember to use the cutting shears from a reputable provider, instead of ones you find in a kitchen, to cut like a pro and achieve the trim you want.
Everyone loves smelling good. Well, maybe not everyone, but people like it more than bad smells! You can buy or make many types of deodorants at home (we recommend getting some lavender essential oil to make the entire house smell nice).
Also, brushing your teeth and using mouthwash is important (please remember that smoking is one of the worst things you could do for your sense of smell).
Taking Care Of Your Teeth
This should be self-explanatory as well. Nobody wants to kiss someone with chapped lips (gross). If your teeth aren’t white enough (they never are), consider buying a whitening kit or changing up your toothpaste.
Be sure you’re smiling nice and bright when you say hi to someone/see them for the first time. If you need help, try using activated charcoal toothpaste or buy some whitening strips beforehand. Then there won’t be any embarrassing moments later on.
Dressing The Part
You have to dress your age. If you are 21, then don’t go wearing clothing that’s made for 50-year-olds. People will notice this pretty quickly and think of you as weird or try-hard. There are plenty of stores out there that sell modern clothes at an affordable price. If all else fails, buying online is always a great option (make sure to read the sizing charts well).
Grooming Your Body Hair
No one likes hair on their back or chest (maybe it can be okay in some cases). Getting rid of any unwanted hair is never fun but sometimes necessary! We recommend waxing your entire body once every week before taking your date out. Hopefully, she’ll find your hairless body attractive.
You should be showering every day to keep yourself clean, but do you need soap on that armpit? We think not. The best thing for those hairy beasts that are sprouting off our bodies is deodorant. This little stick can go a long way and save you from any embarrassment. Get rid of those pit stains and buy some deodorant.
Taking Care Of Your Skin
Boys, if you have any acne, then I highly recommend that you invest in a good acne treatment system (get one with benzoyl peroxide to treat your skin from the inside out). Also, using sunscreen can be helpful to prevent sunburns and potentially deadly melanomas. If you want to make sure that your skin stays healthy-looking for as long as possible, try drinking green smoothies every day or even every other day!
These tricks should help give you an advantage over other guys without much extra work on your part. You might not get 100% better reception than what you’re currently getting by implementing just these few tips and tricks, but you’ll see an improvement. Remember, nobody is perfect, and keep practicing these tips to become even better!
