In the age where selfies have taken over and everyone seems to be attempting to outdo one another, it would be acceptable for us to state that what you look like ought to have zero impact on what happens in your life. That is true to an extent. However, it is proven that when you are confident about the way in which you look, you feel better about yourself and can, in certain circumstances, find yourself more successful.
Continue reading for top ways to make yourself look good and therefore feel better:
Skin Care Regime
Troublesome skin as a teenager is expected. No one tells you that it can carry on throughout life, so what can be done about it? A good, regular skincare regime can really help to eliminate a lot of your skin’s problems. Some people swear by the good old cleanse, tone and moisturise. Other people insist that isn’t necessary. The most important thing is that you find something that works for your skin as we are all different.
Historically, women were the ones to concern themselves with skincare, but men are just as likely to have problems and less likely to use makeup to hide blemishes. Although it is tempting to squeeze a spot when one appears like a beacon, try to resist that. If you fail, ensure you use clean fingers or cotton buds. Do not press too hard otherwise you may cause scarring.
Hair can be both your crowning glory. Many of us choose to colour our hair too, which has an impact on our locks. Finding a good quality, nourishing shampoo and conditioner is important.
For those concerned about hair loss, reducing the damage is important. For example, try to allow hair to dry naturally and avoid towel drying with intense force. If hair loss is becoming a problem, try Finasteride taken orally and this may help to prevent your receding hairline and bald patch. It works by stopping the testosterone converting into the hormone that shrinks follicles and thus reduces hair loss in the majority of cases.
Looking After Your Body
Caring for the inside of your body is important too. Diet and exercise should be planned to ensure that you are giving yourself the best chance in life. Eating a balanced diet is imperative. Avoiding certain foods, except in the case of allergies and intolerances, is often just a trigger to binge eat when you do finally succumb to the temptation. Allow yourself treats every once in a while.
When it comes to exercise, finding something that you enjoy doing is usually key to establishing a long-lasting relationship with fitness. For some, running provides the opportunity to have time on your own to mull over the day. For others, it is mundane and lonely. Some men prefer to join a gym and work on their strengths. Swimming and brisk walking are great options too. Whatever it is you decide to do, make sure it is enjoyable and something you can stick to.
