You don’t have a lot of time. You don’t have a lot of money. You want to perk up your looks to get a little more attention. It would seem like these three facts could never live in harmony, but actually, it’s the little things that count the most. The top three things that you can do to improve your appearance in under a week all cost less than $20!
No More Zits
“Get rid of your acne”
Starting us off at the top of the list is getting rid of your acne. Whether or not you’ve got naturally oily skin, you can’t always shower right after your work out, or you’re addicted to chocolate, acne is something that everyone deals with sooner or later. And that’s exactly what you should do: deal with it. It’s actually not as hard as you think. Most acne solutions are less than $20. Some are less than $10. Try one, keep at it for a few weeks, and if things don’t improve for you try another one. There are tons of different formulas. You may have to dip into the side marketed for women, but I promise you that no hottie will care if your clear skin came from a pink bottle or a black one. It’s the same formulas: acne is acne, no matter who’s getting it. Pro tip: buy a scrubbing brush and do your back heads as well.
Use tweezers to get rid of unwanted facial hair”
Next up is a pair of tweezers. Don’t freak out; we’re not going totally man-scaping on you. Just the really rogue hairs. You know how, every once in a while, you’ll get an eyebrow hair that’s a good quarter inch away from your eyebrow, because nature likes to mess with you? Pull that sucker out. Just rip it on out. Breathe through the pain and know that just doing that will keep you in good shape, even if your eyebrows themselves are as thick and woolly as a mammoth’s pelt. Pro tip: tweezers also work for nose hairs.
Finally, and possibly the most important of them all: teeth whitening strips. These little flimsy pieces of clear plastic will get you all the babes. You already brush with whitening toothpaste? That’s a good start, but it doesn’t do the complete job. White strips won’t either, but they’re a lot more affordable than a bleaching session at the dentist. Buy a box every few months, follow the instructions on the back and you’ll be looking at a smile that’s just that much whiter than the next guy’s. Women love a good smile, so you can dazzle them with a really great one. Even if your teeth aren’t perfectly straight, that’s fine; that doesn’t mean as much as a dim, dingy, or even yellowed smile. Pro tip: Try to vary the brand that you purchase until you find one which is perfect for you.
These fixes will give you that little bit of edge over the competition the next time you set your eye on a new lady. It’s not the expense you go through, so much as the little touches that boost you out of your league. These cosmetic fixes are the pinnacle of low cost, high results: a great investment!
