Be a Sexier Man by Changing Your Look

Edited by Donna, Zara Mae, Eng, Alma

Changing your look can make you more attractive to women.

You can be the nicest man in the world, intelligent, rich and even quite attractive, but if you do not have certain aspects of your look down properly, women won't give you a second glance.

Here are some ways to make you more attractive to women.

  1. 1
    Spend some time in the sun to get a slight tan
    .
    Women find men with a slight tan to be a bit more masculine, possibly because the tan gives you a bit more of an outdoorsy, rugged appearance. You can also acquire a tan by going to a tanning bed or rubbing a bit of bronzer on your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin.
    Women like men who have a bit of a tan.

Tips and Tricks

Having a great smile can help you attract a woman, so be sure to visit the dentist often.

  • It can be worth it to fix a broken smile by having a dentist replace any missing teeth, as a brilliant smile is very important to some women.
  • If you have acne, visit a dermatologist to help clear it up as having blemishes indicates disease or bad eating habits to most women
  • If you are not great at mending your own clothes, you can usually find a tailor or seamstress nearby that can do your mending for you
  • If you are not sure how your facial hair should be trimmed to optimize your attractiveness, you can book an appointment at a unisex salon, where there are usually hairdressers or consultants that can help you find the right look
  • Familiarize yourself with hair products and what they can do to make your hair look more attractive
  • This might be a matter of personal preference, but most women do not like goatees or soul patches of hair on the chin, preferring five o'clock style shadow
  • If you have a double chin, you can disguise it by wearing a black turtleneck, which will also make you look thinner
  • If you have a larger butt than might be deemed attractive avoid buying pants with patchy back pockets, especially if they are small, as this can visually emphasize this male figure flaw
