Do you shy away from looking into the mirror or from taking photos because you don't feel confident about how you look?
Our best friends and family tell us that it's okay and that we should just be ourselves. But what if we don't feel attractive just being ourselves? Before you consider a drastic measure, like plastic surgery, ask yourself if you've tried making small changes to make yourself look and feel better. Here are some things you can work on to look and feel beautiful, inside and out...
All of us have that one annoying someone or something that make us feel unworthy, unpretty at times
Manage that insecurity, as beauty, at the end of it all, is a state of mind! Only if you love yourself, can you truly exhibit self-confidence that makes you look hot. We're not asking you to be a megalomaniac but what you can do is take some time to learn to love yourself and improve your self-esteem.
When you know your place in life and are self-assured, it will show through your smile, your tone and the way you act around others. Meditation and yoga work for some people but for others, a mere visit to the hair salon works just as well. We've heard that some find a haircut particularly therapeutic as chopping off the excess weight helps you leave the bad things, creating a whole new you.
A pretty face looks good but it is one's expressions that can make her more look beautiful and approachable. The way you smile, laugh or even wink can make a huge difference between a plain jane and a beautiful woman. Even if you don't feel that beautiful or confident, you can make yourself look hotter just by trying various facial expressions.

Sometimes, we don't dress up, thinking that nobody will notice us. However, dressing up can lift your mood and make all the difference in you looking hot or not. Taking the effort to dress up well also gives ourselves more confidence, making us look hotte.! For ladies, looking hot doesn't mean you have to wear short skirt or show off your cleavage. Generally, dress appropriately without acting like you're trying too hard to be hot. Instead, find clothes that fit you and show off your personality and your best features. If you’re lost and don’t know where to start, draw inspiration from a celebrity who looks similar to you or has the same body structure.
Everyone has some areas we are insecure about. Whether it is heavy eyebags, flaring acne or uneven skin tone, makeup can help conceal what you don't want others to see and enhance the areas you are proud of.
There is after all, "no ugly women in this world, only lazy ones". Take the effort to learn and experiment with makeup and we guarantee that you will look hotter instantly. There is a wealth of youtube tutorials but if you're overwhelmed by the amount of information online, we recommend you to go for good makeup courses that can help you understand more about the products and colours that best suit your face. Having seen her in action, we think that Priscilla Boh is a great person to start with because she's knowledgeable and so positive about helping people understand more about makeup!
Makeup aside, don't forget to style your hair before you leave the house. Hair forms more than 80% of your face. Blowdrying and adding a simple accessory can make a huge difference!For those of you looking for a quick change, you can also change your parting to give yourself a different look, nothing too drastic.
Of course, you can also consider a digital perm because the added curls can make it a lot easier for you to style your hair...and make you look and feel sexier!

It might also come in the form of an encouraging hairstylist or a facial therapist you have a strong affinity with...
Did you know that smell can also impact how hot you appear to others? According to scientists, humans (and most other mammals) produce pheromones, a chemical that can change the behaviour of another animal. This may be the reason why some female fragrances can make a guy involuntarily spin to look at you once you walk past them! So choose the right scent and enhance your hotness with this simple addition.
The way you carry yourself reflects on your self-worth and your posture can say a lot. Don't just look at your face when observing yourself in the mirror. Look at your whole body, how you keep your back straight and hold yourself up.
A change in posture can change a lot about how you look to others. For ladies, remember to walk, talk and behave like a lady. If you stand tall, walk gracefully and look elegant wherever you are, your poise will definitely get you noticed.
In the race to constantly be the best, we often neglect our face, hair and most importantly, health. Taking the time to care for your beauty and health is necessary for your well-being. So set aside time to evaluate your life habits to see how you can cut out the harmful and put in more of the good stuff. Your face is almost always the first thing that people notice about you so if you want to look more attractive, skincare is something you should work on. Other than eating healthy, drinking lots of water, exercising, put in place a good facial routine to prevent stress lines, acne and the effects of ageing. When you do so, your face will naturally regain an attractive healthy glow!
