How To Be Pretty? 25 Ways To Look More Attractive, Naturally

Ways To Look More Attractive

22. Schedule regular haircuts or trims.

Hairstyling can take a lot of the life out of your hair, especially if you’re using heat like blowdryers, curling irons, or flat irons. But healthy, bouncy hair is just one snip away. Schedule regular (every six to eight weeks) haircuts or simple trims to keep your ends free of breakage and keep the shape of your cut fresh. 

If full haircuts are too pricy to indulge in that often, ask your stylist if there’s a “quick trim” deal you can strike that’s cheaper and just keeps your bangs or bob sharp. You won’t believe how much prettier you’ll look with healthier hair. 

23. Deep condition your hair regularly.

Frizzy and fly-away hairs will always undermine your efforts to look pretty. To keep your hair under control, use a leave-in conditioner that is appropriate for your hair type and do a deep conditioner in the shower once a week.

Healthy hair always adds to our overall beauty.

24. Feed your body healthy foods.

There are many foods you can eat that will help you be naturally pretty because they promote good health overall. But some specific foods can help boost your natural beauty by nourishing your skin and hair, too. Unsurprisingly, fresh fruits and veggies top this list — but that’s not all. 

According to Healthline, foods like avocados, salmon, and walnuts contain healthy fats that can help your hair look healthier and give your skin more elasticity (which reduces fine lines and wrinkles). 

They also recommend eating foods that are high in vitamin C like bell peppers and many fruits, sharing that “this vitamin is necessary for creating the protein collagen, which keeps skin firm and strong.” This information is based upon a large study involving women, and it turned out that “eating plenty of vitamin C to a reduced risk of wrinkled and dry skin with age.”

Many beauty experts recommend drinking two glasses of milk a day, which is a great idea (as long as you’re not allergic!). Milk can help you be more beautiful not just by building strong bones with calcium and vitamin D, but also by helping you build and maintain muscle tone with its high protein content. 

According to physician Heather Beall, who spoke to Oprah Magazine about the benefits of milk, “The protein found in dairy products can help promote skin elasticity as we age.” The article also notes that milk contains retinol, which can help fight the signs of aging. 

Finally, eating foods that are high in beta carotene, lutein and lycopene can help reduce the damaging effects of the sun’s rays. That means carrots, tomatoes, dark leafy green veggies, and sweet potatoes.

25. Eat dark chocolate. 

If you’re looking for a little indulgence, head straight to one of our favorite foods: dark chocolate. Despite the warnings from your mother that chocolate causes acne (it doesn’t!), dark chocolate (which has very little dairy compared to milk chocolate) can actually help your skin look better. 

Not only is chocolate considered a superfood, which makes it great for your immune system, it can also make you prettier. According to British Cosmo, “Rich in vitamins A, B1, C, D, and E, plus iron and calcium, chocolate nourishes your skin from the inside out to replace lost moisture. Plus, it prevents aging; defending against damage by protecting from harmful UV rays thanks to its antioxidant flavonoids.”

Also, when you eat something you love, you can experience a boost of happy hormones in your brain and body, helping you feel relaxed. And when you feel good, you look good!
