You think you might be doing the right things to appeal yourself, but are you really?
Far from being superficial, a concern with one's external appearance
is deeply ingrained within our nature as humans. Men also do care immensely about their looks and indulge in elaborate grooming rituals to enchant women.After all, a potential mate’s attractiveness ranks as one of the top traits
of interest to the opposite sex. Men still for the most part don’t know what women want.
In addition, research suggests that more attractive individuals might actually earn more in the long term. Fortunately for you, even if you weren’t as lucky in the genetic lottery as Salman
Khan, there are a number of tactics you can avail yourself of in the service of making the most of what you were given and improving your attractiveness
. So what exactly should you be doing right now that will make you more attractive to women? How do you go about being handsome and sexy? Here are some simple, common methods to get there.
Fitness and body image is undoubtedly a big part of looking attractive, but some men mistake them for a factory to pile up muscles. More often than not they pick workouts that only muscles up their biceps while letting the rest of the body lie in neglect.
Girls don’t necessarily like those monstrous bodies that bodybuilders like to have. Just take a look at some of the top Hollywood heartthrobs and you will see that all you need is broad shoulders, toned torso and legs to match.Exercising regularly not only helps with your appearance, confidence, and energy, but releases endorphins that make you feel good, and therefore more appealing to others.
Many people, perhaps unfairly, associate bad skin with bad hygiene. Wash your face thoroughly, especially after any physical activity. Avoid razor burn if at all possible. Taking care of your skin and body is a good thing but if you are totally obsessed about having fair skin and think it's manly in any way, you need to reconsider.
Guys shouldn’t really be stressed about facial hair as long as they have got it all under control. Unkempt and messy beards may be a turnoff for some, but a manly stubble is something that can make you look very sexy.
Clean, neat and healthy
Although this is quite a generic tip for guys to look handsome, it is probably the most important one. You will look a lot more handsome if you look neat and healthy. Take a shower to start the day and looking fresh.
Attitude and personality
Nothing—not bone structure, not a haircut, not even sensible shoes—will do more for how you are perceived than exuding a sense of self-confidence. Most perceived handsome men have one thing in common when it comes to the way they talk – a sense of confidence oozes from their voice tone. You must practice this trait if you want increase your hotness quotient.
Hunching over can not only cause back problems but makes you look as if you have no self-confidence. Sit-up straight too, for the same reasons. Don’t sit with your legs crossed tightly like a girl. At the same time, sitting with your legs so wide apart that your body language seems arrogant will work against you.
Keep your legs apart when you sit and if you like crossing your legs, put one on top of the other while making sure that there is some space between your thighs.
No matter how blessed you are with your looks, you will never be the epitome of handsomeness if you don’t smile. Smiling will make you appear happy
, and outgoing
. It will also keep you from looking tired and in despair. Get into the habit of smiling at people when you meet them.
From clipping your nails regularly so that your fingers don’t look dirty to brushing your teeth regularly so that you have fresh breath all the time. Wash and brush your hair on a regular basis. Eating healthy will help with many things such as keeping a good weight, avoiding cavities, having a good complexion, and being energetic.
Getting eight hours or more of sleep every night will do wonders for your complexion, energy and overall appearance.
Smell nice every day
A manly fragrance oozing out of your body can add a whole new dimension to your image. On the other hand, bad body odor is a massive turnoff.
Don’t be fidgety
The epitome of a real man is a guy who remains calm in all situations. It might be impossible to achieve this surreal image in real life but the key is to avoid being fidgety – from a body language and behavior perspective.
Way of speaking
Make a defined way of talking while having word but don’t be eccentric. We all know how to talk, but being able to speak clearly and enunciate well will enhance how you are perceived.Know that voice is an impression itself.
Don’t speak too meekly and make sure that you have a clear speech. Don’t stop sentences halfway and avoid trailing off as your sentences come to an end. Follow it up by making eye contact when you talk to people. Whether it is a flirty conversation or a friendly chat.
Fashion and style
Your clothes and how you wear them say a lot about you, and will have an effect on how people perceive you. Wearing unflattering or extremely poorly-sized clothing says you don't care about how you present yourself. You can wear whatever style is comfortable for you, whether it be trendy, alternative, casual or sporty, as long as it's appropriate to who you are.
Keep an eye out for men you consider well dressed. Having a signature item of clothing can help you stand out and draw attention to your style.
