With the new year fast approaching, now’s the perfect time to revamp your image and make yourself feel more attractive. There are lots of ways to improve your look. From rethinking your hairstyle to finessing your fashion choices, you should be able to make some relatively simple changes to boost your confidence and put a spring in your step for 2016.
1) Get a fuller head of hair
As celebs like Jude Law and Jason Statham demonstrate, you don’t need flowing locks to look great. However, if you’re losing your hair and you’re not happy about it, there may be steps you can take to address the issue. Male pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss and it occurs when testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This hormone can have a damaging effect on hair follicles and eventually it can cause them to die. If you’re developing the tell-tale signs of male pattern baldness, you may benefit from taking the treatment finasteride. Better known under the brand name Propecia, it works by blocking the production of DHT. It comes in tablet form and it usually takes between three and six months to show positive results. In many cases, it slows or stops the loss of hair, and around two-thirds of men who take it see renewed growth. This is a prescription hair loss treatment and you can find out more about it online or by speaking to your doctor.
2) Hit the gym
Whether you’re completely out of condition or you’d just like to achieve a more toned look, it’s worth hitting the gym. OK, so it takes some effort to improve your physical condition, but the results will make your hard work worthwhile. Getting in shape will mean you feel better about your body and it could cause your confidence to skyrocket. As an added bonus, you might find that your energy levels increase too. To ensure your workout is tailored to help you achieve the results you’re after, it’s a good idea to book an appointment with a personal trainer to kickstart your get fit routine. These experts can tell you exactly which exercises to focus on.
3) Refresh your wardrobe
Want to look your best at the Christmas work party? Or perhaps you’ve got a hot date planned. Whichever events you’ve got lined up, now could be a great time to refresh your wardrobe. It’s easy to get stuck in a fashion rut and buy the same styles of clothes in the same colours time after time. To really turn heads, why not go for something completely different instead? So that you don’t fall into your usual shopping habits, try taking a fashion-conscious friend with you when you hit the stores. They’ll be able to steer you in a new direction and get you to try garments you may otherwise avoid. Revamping your wardrobe is one of the quickest and easiest ways to improve your look.
