6 Secrets to Looking Sharp for the Ladies

6 Secrets to Looking Sharp for the Ladies

Many guys are clueless when it comes to impressing the ladies.

Of course, women tend to be more drawn to personality and maturity than looks (one of the many things that set the genders apart). However, a lot of women also care a lot about a man’s physical appearance. Here are some tips if you want to look sharp the next time you hit the club or want to approach that cute girl at the local coffee shop.

1. Only Grow a Beard if You Are Going to Do it Right

Women tend to have mixed feelings about beards. Part of the problem is that many men just don’t grow their beards out right.

Girls tend to be attracted to men with beards. It is a sign of manliness. However, they want to see that your beard is tidy. If your hair tends to jut out a lot, then you will need to be more diligent about trimming it. This is the biggest secret of all  good looking beard styles.

Buzzfeed’s Peggy Wang says that beards are great for some guys, but others should just keep their face clean-shaven.

“Patchy facial hair will always end up looking prickly and slovenly. Time to stop experimenting with the facial hair and start adhering to your clean-shaven regimen.”

2. Get a Workout Before Going Out

Anyone reading this post is probably already working out (or at least thinking about it). Getting exercise keeps you thin and builds muscle, which is a pleasure for the ladies.

However, working out isn’t enough. You also need to know when to work out. There are a couple reasons you may want to hit the treadmill or curl your biceps several hours right before going out:

  • It bulks up your muscle for three to four hours. You will look extra buff, which will turn more women’s heads.
  • Mild perspiration will release some pheromones, which subtly makes you more interesting.

Of course, you don’t want to be drenched in sweat either. Get a light workout without perspiring too much.

3. Make Sure Your Haircut Matches Your Face

Ryan Jackson, a grooming expert, states that too many people get haircuts that just aren’t right for them. A buzz cut or cropped hair may look great on someone else, but that doesn’t mean it will work for you.

“I used to think I looked fine with buzzcuts, little did I know my face shape/features weren’t suitable for really short hair,” Jackson says. “I realized this after getting feedback from others who told me, ‘It looks bad, you need more hair on the top of your head.’”

4. Start Wearing Slimmer Jeans

You probably never even really thought much about your jeans before. They are just jeans, right?

No. Your jeans play a major role in your physical appearance. Putting on a slimmer pair of jeans can make you look thinner and taller, which are both pluses with the ladies.

5. Dress Sharp

You will feel a lot more confident if you dress nicely. You don’t need to put on a tuxedo every time you go out. In fact, you don’t want to. It looks stupid, as we saw in Step Brothers.

So what should you wear? Here are a couple timeless pieces to include in your wardrobe:

  • Denim shirt
  • White or blue dress shirts
  • Blue blazer
  • Loafers or alligator boots
  • Gray, white or light blue cardigans

Think carefully every time you dress to go out. Women will probably notice your style before your face or hair.

6. Trim Your Hair Carefully

Remove any unwanted body hair. Having a three o clock shadow may look good when you hit the club on Friday, but other hair should be removed. Here are a couple things to keep in mind:

  • Pluck out any stray hairs from your face.
  • Remove all nose hairs. It’s a good idea to purchase a nose trimmer because it does a more thorough job.
  • Trim your chest and back if necessary. Most women don’t like to see it when they end up at your place.
  • If you are very nearly bald, then just shave your hair off. Don’t try to hide it with a combover.

Women like to see some hair on a man, but they want to see it in moderation.

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

Affordable, relaxing, and healthy, oil diffusers are gaining popularity with people everywhere due to their extensive benefits. Oil diffusers work through the simple process of oil diffusion, which uses heat to turn oil into a vapor that is then spread around a living space. Diffused oil can have several relaxation and health-related benefits, including safe scent-dispersion, mosquito and mold defense, stress relief, and more!

Read on for 11 hidden benefits of using oil diffusers.

1. Safe Scents That Make Sense

Unlike candles or air fresheners, oil diffusers release cleansing molecules into your air that work to purify it, not overload it with unhealthy chemicals. Electronic diffusers also do not pose the fire risk that candles do. Plus, they contain the added feature of interchangeability, which means you change oil types for different scents and health benefits.

2. Stress Relief

Several lab studies have confirmed that diffusing essential oils like lavender have been shown to reduce stress and help relieve anxiety in medical patients. Preliminary studies have also shown that oil diffusers can help alleviate symptoms of depression.

3. Improved Sleep

Diffused oil has relaxing properties that can help people of all ages fall asleep quicker and sleep more soundly. Electronic diffusers not only have the option to mix and match different oil blends (Try a lavender, Bulgarian rose, and Roman chamomile blend to help with insomnia), they also run at a gentle hum that helps relax an agitated mind. Many also come with an auto shut-off feature to help conserve oils once you have fallen asleep.

4. Appetite Control

Much like gum, oil diffusers can help stimulate the senses in a way that works to curb appetite. New research has shown that diffused peppermint oil can help curb appetite by inducing a satiety response within the body. Diffused peppermint oil has also been shown to increase energy.

5. Bacteria and Mold Killing

When essential oils are diffused in the air, they break down free radicals that contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria. Eucalyptus, thyme, and tea tree oils are especially good for this purpose. Diffused oil is also highly effective when it comes to combating fungal yeast threats, as the oil help makes the air inhospitable for yeasts such as mold. Pine and red thyme essential oils are best for combating mold.

6. Decongestion and Mucus Control

Ever tried Vick’s Vapo-Rub? Its decongesting powers come from active ingredients made from the eucalyptus tree. In principle, oil diffusers work the same way as Vapo-Rub, except they diffuse their decongesting vapor all around the room, not just on your chest or neck. Oil diffusers have been known to cure pneumonia in lab mice.

7. Mosquito Repellant

Nobody likes mosquitoes — but when the trade-off means using repellants full of DEET, a toxic chemical that can be especially harmful to children, mosquito control can often seem like a lose-lose. However, scientists have shown that oil diffusers can be used as a safe and highly effective mosquito repellant. Studies have shown that a diffused oil mixture containing clove essential oil and lemongrass essential oil repelled one type of Zika-carrying mosquito, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, at a rate of 100%.

8. Pain Relief

While applying oils directly to areas of your body may be the most effective way to alleviate pain, diffusing essential oils can also be an effective means of pain relief. When we inhale healthy essential oils, they enter our blood stream and can help internally relieve persistent pain from headaches, overworked muscles, and sore joints.

9. The New Anti-Viral

Research into the anti-viral effects of oil diffusion is now just gaining steam. A recent study showed that star anise essential oil was proven in medical experiments to destroy the herpes simplex virus in contained areas at a rate of 99%. Another study showed the popular DoTerra oil blend OnGuard to have highly-effective influenza-combating powers.

10. Improved Cognitive Function

Diffusing essential oils has also been shown to improve cognitive function. Many essential oils have adaptogenic qualities, which can work twofold in soothing us when we’re stressed, and giving our bodies a pick-me-up when we’re feeling down or sluggish. By working to level out an imbalanced mood, diffused oils also help us to focus. There are also several essential oils which have been shown to help balance the body’s hormones. With prolonged use, these oils can work to repair the underlying causes responsible for hindering cognitive function.

11. Money Saving

With ten clear benefits of oil diffusers already outlined, there is one more that should now be obvious: using an oil diffuser will help you to save money. As an anti-viral, bug repelling, and stress-relief solution rolled into one safe product, an oil diffuser used with the proper oils will save you money on products you might otherwise be buying to help cure those pesky headaches or get your kids to fall asleep on time. If you’re wondering just how affordable oil diffusers can be, check the buyer’s guide to the best oil diffusers — you’ll be sure to find one that fits your budget!
