Are you really ready to spend the opportune moment with your partner this holiday?
That feeling of being elevated, looking forward to something potentially great, maybe in for a few butterflies in your stomach too. Getting ready for a date has some weight to it, especially if you are serious about showing the best version of yourself. It is a frequently-quoted phrase that your inside is more important than your outside, which even though true, doesn’t have to mean that looking after your looks can’t have a beneficial effect on your self-esteem and confidence.
The ultimate rule of thumb would be not to do anything to yourself that would conceal your essence and make a false impression on the other person.
With that in mind, here are some tips that will enhance your physical features to just the right extent.
If your mom didn’t tell you at the age of 15 that you’d better start using a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer on your face and be amazed at the results they would bring, then you’d better start right now and be amazed at the results that a simple routine like this could bring. Think about this basic skincare regimen as you think about brushing your teeth—it’s part of your daily living. Boost this routine by applying a polishing scrub and a deep cleansing mask from time to time to ensure that your natural glow stays with you for years to come. Don’t do this just for your date but do this out of an understanding of how a youthful and healthy look can profit you in the long-run.
There is growing research in the area of smell and how it is connected to finding a partner, whether it is a partner for life or a partner for the shorter term.
You can’t do much about the natural scent of your body, although avoiding certain types of spices, foods, and addictions go a long way in this regard.
But, even if it doesn’t feel like the appropriate time to give all these up just for a date, you can easily take care of basic hygiene in the form of taking a proper shower that includes washing, scrubbing, polishing, and shaving.
Treat every inch of your body right in order for that treatment to affect your soul as well.
Experiment with colors
Whether it is your hair, nails, makeup, or clothes, you can play around and try colors that you didn’t necessarily think would fit you before. You can find an abundance of resources when it comes to color analysis and seasonal color types.
Take into consideration what the ‘raw material’ is in terms of your natural complexion, hair color, and type of skin, and see what shades suit you the most.
Take every opportunity that allows you to see yourself in a different light and find your very own look in the process.
Avoid unpleasant surprises
Treating your body properly extends to what you fuel yourself with. It is worth learning at least a little bit about the health effects of different types of food. What does junk food do if you eat it on a regular basis? Not statistically speaking but to your very constitution and wellbeing…
For example, oily, deep-fried food is the cause of many first-world diseases like obesity and diabetes, which by extension could entail unpleasant conditions, such as candidiasis and other fungal conditions.
We can agree on the fact that increasing the chances of these happening might not bring about the desired results.
After all, you’re going on a holiday date with possibly higher expectations for the future, and that expectation could be represented in every aspect of your life.
Cherish your alone time
It may not be clear right away what cherishing your alone time has to do with beauty. Consider this: The right attitude before any date is to bump into the person in whose presence you can actually be alone.
In other words, your holiday date should have the potential to be the person with whom you can be most comfortable in your skin and who can be most comfortable with you in their skin.
Test yourself out in turning inwards and spending time with you and yourself only to face what goes by the name of ‘inner demons’ and which includes thoughts and feelings of desperation, anger at the world, and hopelessness.
Have these out of the way by confronting them directly and be very sure that having confronted them only adds to your natural beauty, that beauty that is then able to radiate from your inside to the world.
