In the old world, being sexy was all about special care, tight clothing and makeup. Now we know that being sexy has more to do with a particular je ne sais quoi. Although science has tried to measure what makes a person more attractive, most of us know that attractiveness cannot be reduced to algorithms. Real sexiness is in the eye of the beholder.
But if you are looking for ways to be more attractive, you will be happy to know that most of it does not cost you a penny and does not take long. Here are 40 tips to get sexier almost instantly.
1. Always make eye contact
And not just with your partner: looking directly into the eyes of everyone you interact with will not only increase your own confidence, but will make people see you as a confident and controlling person, which generally translates to sexy.
2. Focus on dynamic appeal
Of course, physical beauty is a key component of innate sexual attraction, but dynamic attraction involves expressing our emotions and our underlying personality and can critically enhance your personal charisma. According to Psychology Today, expressions of positive influence are: smiling, adopting an optimistic attitude, expressive eyes associated with sexual attraction.
3. You have a brain: use it!
A sharp and healthy mind can look like a healthy body when it comes to being sexy. This means occasionally challenging yourself by having a challenging conversation, expressing interest in new things, reading books on new topics or even just watching a documentary about something you never knew. The more you know, the more you will be able to speak in an informed manner, which is a crucial factor in the actual sex appeal.
4. Humor counts
Yes, we know that sharp humor is not something that can be learned and not all of us are able to be really funny all the time, but not taking ourselves or the world around us seriously is a key component to being sexy . Also, everyone loves a good sense of humor.
5. Let your hair fly
Most of us can attest that when our hair looks bad, we often feel bad. It turns out that it’s not all in our heads: studies have shown that women spend about 20 years of their lives suffering from a bad hair day, and that it can greatly affect mood and self-esteem.
6. Cover your wrists
No, not because they are attractive, but because the glands in your wrists emit pheromones that can trigger feelings of attraction in others.
7. Start practicing yoga
A study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine showed that women who practiced yoga regularly actually felt sexier. Why? Researchers say it may be because yoga promotes a stronger body-to-body connection.
8. Try some sexy lingerie
Along the way, lingerie became synonymous with sticky (we dare be porn), pieces that seem to belong to people eagerly awaiting the arrival of the young and beautiful pizza vendor. And while that is true in some respects, there are also many very stylish and sexy basic things that are sexy without being tacky.
9. Do not assume that it is sexier to show more.
You’ve heard it before – showing tons of skin doesn’t always translate to sexy. Shorts, tight-fitting clothes, incredibly low-cut tops can make you look less sexy or as if you are trying too hard. Do you love your body and want to show it? Store! Do it in ways that are really sexy, rather than flashy.
10. Stop following people who make you insecure
Whether it’s the fashion blogger who only posts bikini photos, a certain celebrity or Victoria’s Secret Instagram, stop following people whose photos on social media make you feel smaller, even for a second. Social media should be fun, it does not make you feel less sexy.
