Have a “Great Personality”? No Problem! Find Out How to Look Hot, Anyway

17. May 2011

So you’re not a 10; or a nine; or an eight; or a seven; or even a six. On the bright side, your personality is a stunning 11. Sure—it’s small consolation to be known for your character rather than your looks. Don’t fret—with a few simple changes, you’ll have no problem getting your outer beauty to match your inner beauty.

The secret to getting people to notice more than your intelligence or humor is to address physical flaws by hiding them, eliminating them altogether, or putting a positive spin on them. Below are typical flaws; along with solutions for overcoming each one, to make you look so hot that when people say you have a great head on your shoulders, they’ll mean more than one thing.

Big Nose

If your nose would fit in better among a crowd on Sesame Street than Sunset Boulevard, you might have a difficult time grabbing someone’s attention. Unlike Mr. Potato Head, you can’t just pop on a new one; unless you can stomach cosmetic surgery. An easier, and less painful solution is to perform a little makeup magic. The right shading will create an optical illusion making your nose appear smaller.

The products that will do the trick are blush, eye shadow, and a bronzer or foundation that is a tad darker than your natural skin color. For a thinner-looking nose, apply heavier shades along the sides with a strip left running down the center.
To shorten the length, apply a darker shade under your nose reaching just above the tip. Run a thin strip of highlighter down the center to help reflect light. By gradually curving your nose and applying makeup in small, well-blended amounts, you achieve a more natural look.

Blemishes

Blemishes will mar your beautiful face, and cause people to wonder if you and the moon are siblings. Unfortunately, a variety of things can cause blemishes, including severe acne, dry or oily skin, razor burn, and even allergies. Thus, it’s important to take daily steps towards prevention and immediate treatment.

The first step is to wash your face once a day to remove dirt, oil, and other impurities. Afterwards, apply a toner to close your pores and further cleanse away leftover dirt or dead skin. Follow up with a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and healthy.

Every so often, exfoliate with a scrub or cloth for a deep cleaning, but avoid irritating the skin with constant use. The food you eat can also be the culprit of blemishes, so pay attention to your diet and make changes accordingly.

Unflattering Curves

A major barrier to looking your hottest is having more unflattering curves than the Indianapolis 500 racetrack. The good news is that curves can be eliminated with a balanced diet and routine exercise. Eat lots of fruits, vegetables, and only lean meats. Avoid sweets like the plague. A proper exercise routine doesn’t require hours at the gym, only 20-30 minutes of cardio per day.

However, dieting and exercise are long-term projects. In the meantime, you can still look hot by balancing your body with the right wardrobe. That means no more hiding behind baggy sweats like a walking blanket, or sporting attire fit for someone half your age and exposing parts of the body that shouldn’t even been seen in private, much less public.

Instead, wear garments all of the same color and pick fabrics the gradually conform to the curves of your body. Your outfit should be symmetrical from top to bottom so that one area doesn’t stand out.

Damaged Hair

From the sun to smog to a hairspray overdose, your hair takes more abuse than a child’s very first toy. Use shampoos and conditioners that are designed to specifically treat damaged hair, but also consider washing your hair less frequently to prevent it from drying out. While styling your hair, apply shine enhancers, such as silicone, to create a healthy sheen and add protection against heat.

However, it’s better to simply scale back the use of tools like blow dryers and curlers that can potentially burn your hair. Remember to avoid products that claim to remove split ends; the only cure is a good trim. Lastly, when venturing outdoors, wear a hat or scarf to protect your hair from the sun and pollutants.

Bad Breath

Although it lurks behind closed doors—your lips—bad breath is a major turn off. In most cases, bad breath is caused by poor dental hygiene, and can be easily remedied. Sometimes it is the result of serious medical conditions like diabetes or liver problems, for which you should seek long-term medical treatment.

If your bad breath falls in the former category, you can go from a mute to an avid kisser in no time. First and foremost, brush your teeth twice a day, including the tongue, while flossing once. After eating, try rinsing your mouth with water to remove any leftover food particles.

When out with friends, bring along gum to mask any odors, as well as induce the flow of saliva to naturally clean teeth. If you smoke, make attempts to quit, because no one enjoys the smell of an ash tray. Bad breath is also caused by a lack of vitamins, so be sure to eat nutrient-rich foods.

Tiny Ta-Tas

In today’s superficial society, half the population has an affliction that causes the eyes to wander south from the face to the chest area. Sadly, that half also has a major say in what’s hot and what’s not. If your mountain range is a landscape of rolling hills, don’t stress. There are ample ways to make your chest stand out.

A natural solution is to maintain good posture by keeping your spine straight, shoulders back, and chest out. However, there are a variety of undergarments available that are specially designed to increase breast size with padding or gels.
A tighter bra will also accentuate cleavage and provide lift. You can create the illusion of bigger breasts by wearing tops that have fitted v-necks and breast pockets, or applying makeup between your breasts for a shadow effect.

Man Chest

For those unfortunate men who have a predisposition to grow man breasts, there are solutions they can use to remove attention. Wearing a ‘bro,’ or man bra, is not necessarily the best option.

Rather than wear a mansiere, a guy can wear thick, heavy fabrics. Darker colors are better at hiding flesh than lighter tones. By all means a man with this issue should avoid wearing horizontal stripes, which will draw attention to that region of his chest.

“Man Hands”

Although popularized in an episode of Seinfeld, “man hands” are undoubtedly real. However, you can overcome the masculinity from your nails to your wrists. Use a moisturizing hand cream throughout the day to prevent cracking and to maintain a healthy, feminine skin tone.

At all costs, avoid cutting your cuticles which causes hangnails and scar tissue to form along your nails. To take away attention from your less than stellar hand features, wear dazzling accessories like bracelets and rings, and use colorful, but tasteful, nail polish.

CONCLUSION

The truth is that looking hot doesn’t come naturally; everyone has their flaws. However, you’ve already got a great personality, so once you conquer your flaws, just imagine how hot you’re going to be. It’s also important to remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and though you may be self conscious about something, someone else may find it very alluring.
