Slumps happen to almost everyone, but that doesn’t make them any less difficult to deal with. When you’ve spent the week spending your free time hiding from the world and avoiding chores, the task of feeling attractive can feel like an uphill battle. After all, if you don’t have the energy to do last night’s dishes, what’s the point in putting on a face mask? Sometimes, though, it only takes a small amount of effort to make you feel like you again. Here are six simple steps to feeling more attractive when going through a slump.
1: Put on Some Perfume
There is something revitalizing about spraying your perfect perfume. Perhaps it’s the memory trigger, or maybe it’s just how amazing it smells on you. Either way, a spray of your favorite scent on your wrists, neck, and behind the ears will instantly make you feel beautiful.
If you want to build your perfume collection, signing up for a perfume subscription box will quickly have your dressing table filled with designer perfumes. Then, when you feel down, you have a wider choice.
2: Try Some Simple Hairstyles
You don’t have to spend loads of money at the hairdressers to feel good about your hair – some simple hairstyles will suffice, especially if you’ve been neglecting it. Try a messy bun, some cute plaits, or a low ponytail to completely change your look in an instant.
3: Clean, Clean, Clean
In order to feel attractive, you must first feel squeaky clean. Even if you’ve showered recently, jumping back in and scrubbing your body with an exfoliant and following it up with a great-smelling lotion will make you feel more attractive in no time at all. Don’t forget to wash your hair and brush your teeth, too! If you want a little more relaxation, run yourself a bath and drop in some essential oils.
4: Do Your Full Skincare Routine
Doing your full skincare routine may take some time, depending on how many products you usually use, but the results are more than worth it. After all, what’s better than relaxing at the end of the day with clean, glowing skin? Exfoliate, cleanse, tone, and moisturize your way to feeling instantly more attractive. A face mask never hurt, either!
5: Pull on a Comfortable Dress
When it comes to feeling attractive, what you wear plays a major role. Being in a slump can prevent you from putting on that killer outfit, though, especially if it involves too many individual pieces. A great solution to this is putting on a comfy dress. It only goes over your head, so it’s quick and simple, but it provides that attractive feeling you miss when wearing sweatpants.
One of the best ways to feel more attractive is by smiling. It’s instant, takes basically zero effort, and improves your mood as well as how you feel about yourself. If you don’t have the energy to do anything else, at least put the effort into a smile.
