a very important side note
I think that wanting to look good and loving and accepting yourself can go hand in hand, as long as you see ‘looking good’ as an extension of your own natural beauty. Spending time and money to make yourself look attractive and feel confident is a sign of self respect, and wanting to look good is a matter of presenting yourself to the world as you wish to be perceived. I’ve linked some resources on other things you can do for your self love at the bottom of this post!
So without further ado, let’s look good and look attractive together!

Scrub your face
A good facial scrub, who who hasn’t used one? I always notice such a difference when I use my scrub, it’s crazy. all the little bumps on my face disappear, and it feels soft and smooth.
Both these scrubs are created to give you that beautiful, glowing skin. one with kelp, one with Corsican pomelo. Whichever way you lean, beautiful skin will soon be yours.
Make sure to not overuse your scrub, as it is possible to damage the skin. Follow the instructions on the packaging for the most beautiful results.
If there is anything that makes your skin look good, it is a chemical peel. Where a normal scrub exfoliates your skin from the outside, chipping away at the dead skin cells, a chemical peel takes it one step further.
It penetrates the skin, and chemically peels off the top layer of your skin, leaving your skin with a fresh layer that is untouched and beautiful.
It also helps if you have pimples, as it gently removes the top layer, making it easier for your pores to be cleansed properly.
As it does get rid of the top layer of your skin, you can often only use a chemical peel once or twice a week, and you’ll need to be more careful with open wounds, as well as be extra diligent with sunscreen. The new skin is more sensitive, so it needs a bit more care.
However, it also allows for your skin care products to sink in deeper into the skin, making them more effective and giving you better, softer, clearer skin.
A chemical peel is truly worth the money.
A face mask
After your skin has been scrubbed, and your pores been made more accessible, it’s time for a face mask. Pick a mask that best suits your needs.
You can go for a very classic clay mask, like the extremely popular indian clay mask. This has been a best-seller for years, and for a good reason. clay masks dry on your skin and pretty much suck all the gunk out of your pores. there is no classy way to say this.
The pumpkin enzyme mask has gentle exfoliants, like the chemical peels, and leaves your skin looking refreshed and glowing.
Add some technology
As it’s the 21st century, we are infusing technology into everything. so why not your skincare routine?
You could get an LED mask, which has several settings and can be used to reduce scarring, kill bacteria, smooth skin or increase collagen production, depending on which color you use. With only 25 minutes, 3 times a week, this mask can truly transform your skin.
Or, you can go for a very modern face mask, like the Foreo UFO activated face mask. The device activates the face masks and makes them that much more powerful. The functions of this little device will help you look attractive in no time at all.
It’s basically an at home facial, as the UFO has a cooling, warming, pulsing and an LED option as well! Just don’t forget to get the separate masks to make the most of this smart tool, though you can also use them without the UFO.
After you have done your face mask, this is the time where you can add any extra steps you want in terms of skincare products. You could use some retinol to help with fine lines, or hyaluronic acid to add extra moisture to your skin.
My favorite brand for these products is the ordinary, as they are high quality but super affordable. I’ve used their niacinamide, the retinol 1% and 2%, the AHA + BHA as well as their marine hyaluronic acid and have never been disappointed.
Above are their vitamin C suspension, which helps brighten skin, and the retinol, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Their website has a super useful guide on how to combine their products (as in: don’t combine vitamin C and retinol on the same evening) and both these products are excellent for use at night.
A super important step in any plan to look attractive and amazing is moisturizer. It replenishes your skin and makes it look soft and bouncy, just like we want.
These are both water based moisturizers, which means we can let them sink in for a couple of minutes, then layer an oil-based moisturizer on top. My absolute favorite is argan oil, but you can also use rosehip oil, coconut oil or any other oil you prefer.
To ensure gorgeous hair in the morning, we have to put in some work in the evening. I am a huge fan of the Olaplex hair perfector, and I’ve been using it for 3 years. oleplex restores and fills the damage in your hairs with proteins, so it really is a super restoring treatment that will change your hair. Trust me, you’ll never want to go back.
Another really good option is the arvazallia argan oil mask. I’ve never tried this, but with almost 22,000 reviews and a 4.5 star average, this has to be good. It’s said to be a salon quality treatment that restores and conditions your hair to make it soft and silky. Sounds like a dream, if you ask me!
None of these are the main event, and will probably not show a huge difference overnight. but stick with them, and you’ll notice the changes they make.
- A silk pillow case. Silk has been shown to reduce hair breakage and be so much softer and kinder on your kin. it doesn’t absorb moisture from your skin, whihc leaves it feeling more hydrated and glowing in the morning
- A lip mask. For super kissable lips, apply a lip mask before you go to sleep. It’s super hydrating so you can wake up, ready to kiss the love of your life!
- Castor oil. Also called wonder oil or miracle oil, apply castor oil to your lashes every night to help them grow long and strong. Simple, but effective
- a biotin supplement. Biotin will do wonders for your hair, skin and nails. I’ve been taking these since october, and you would not believe how strong my nails are compared to before. I can see new baby hairs popping through everywhere, even though I’ve had a lot of hair loss. Take this every day and I promise you’ll notice the difference.
Bonus tip: internal beauty
You know that Roald Dahl quote?
“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely“
You can spend hundreds of dollars on skin care, hair care, visit your facialist every week and get blowouts as much as you like. But if you are a negative person, or you don’t feel very sure and confident in your own skin, there is only so much you can do to look good.
So I want to urge you to spend time with yourself. Work on your thought patterns. Be kind to others. Go over self love affirmations and learn how to truly love yourself. Date yourself and become more confident than ever before.
It’s easy to focus on the outside, but the real change happens inside. Remember that, and it’ll be extreemly easy to look attractive.

I hope these tips will help you feel amazing and look attractive, whatever that looks like to you. But honestly, there is no point in spending lots of money on your skin and hair if you don’t feel good about yourself. You can look attractive, but if you don’t have that internal self love and confidence, barely anyone will notice.
Now spend some time on yourself, go out in the world and conquer your goals. you got this!
