We all want to be more attractive and science has shown there’s a good reason for that—people who are attracted are healthier, more trusted and more successful.
Luckily you don’t have to be an incredible natural beauty to be attractive. People are actually more attracted to the average than the incredible, and there are many different ways you can make yourself more attractive:
1. Get a nice smell
Smell is the strongest remembered sense, so if you smell nice people are more likely to be attracted to you. Go for an unusual smell so you don’t remind the person you’re trying to attract of someone else and remember to use scent sparingly as a growing number of people are allergic to many man-made scents.
2. Whiten those teeth
Evenly spaced, white teeth are one of the biggest factors in how people perceive you. Buy some whitening strips and cut back on coffee and red wine to reduce stains on your teeth.
3. More fruits and vegetables for your skin
Fruit and vegetables contain high concentrations of antioxidants and other essential nutrients, making them the best natural way to improve your skin. Even adding one serving of fruit or vegetables to your daily diet can make a big difference.
4. Guys – shave your beards
Yes, there are women who love the bearded look but most women find men less attractive when they have a beard. The bigger the beard, the less attractive it is. So get shaving!
5. Women – wear red lipstick
Men consider lips the most attractive part of a woman’s face, especially when they’re covered in a nice layer of red lipstick.
6. Be in a group
It turns out that people assume you’re more attractive when you’re in a group of people. This is because, as mentioned above, people are actually attracted to average. When you’re in a group they automatically assume that you are an average level of attractiveness compared to other people in the group.
7. Women – go hair free
Like it or not, shaving or removing leg hair with a device such as an epilator is pretty much mandatory when it comes to appeasing the desires of the opposite sex. Facts are, most guys prefer hair free.
8. Mimic them
Opposites do attract but people are even more attracted to people who are like them. So if you’re really into someone, pay attention to how they move and speak and try to make your own movements and speech patterns a little more like theirs.
9. Take care of your face
Sounds a bit shallow, but the face, and particularly skin tone and complexion of the face are important factors in attractiveness to the opposite sex. It’s for this reason that the cosmetic industry is booming and products such as home makeup kits, skin care programs, and facial cleansers are so popular.
10. Be confident
Believe it or not, the most important factor in attractiveness has nothing to do with your face or even your body. The vast majority of people are most attracted to confidence. So keep your head held high and strut your stuff.
