You may be tempted to stay up late, you do not want to develop this bad habit.


Schedule your beauty sleep as soon as you know an important day or event is coming up.

Your body needs at least 8 hours of sleep. Ditch the Netflix binge-watching to look pretty.

No one is going to ask which show you’ve watched last night. Right?

The quality of your sleep directly impacts everything from less puffy eyes, glowing skin to better hair. And that’s just the Beauty bonuses!

As far as I know, there is no better way to relax than to simply lie down and forget about everything for a while. My favorite activity is, of course, sleeping.

Besides, what is more, relaxed and pleasant than simply lying down and forgetting about all the stress? Sleeping is probably my favorite thing to do.

I think the biggest beauty essential is as simple as a full good night’s sleep.

Every type of skin is beautiful. However, people are naturally attracted to skin that is healthy and supple (not saying clear but healthy). The one that shines without using a highlighter. That’s something that we all secretly want.

Follow a suitable skincare routine to get clear and glowing skin. Because bad skin the one with zits and pimples can affect your confidence.

With clear skin, you’ll feel pretty both internally and externally.

Having proper skin care is important. Find what your skin requires, don’t jump onto every other product because your favorite social media influencer promotes it.

Do your research, know your skin type and choose your skincare products carefully.

Healthy skin is a way to look pretty naturally.

3. Keep your Hair Clean and Styled

Healthy, Voluminous, and well-styled hair enhances your appearance and makes you appear more attractive.

Who, on the other hand, enjoys knots and tangles? Treat your hair like a crown girl, they can create or break your entire look. Here are some of my favorite hair styling tips straight from my hairstylist!

  1. Choosing the right shampoo, conditioner, mask, and serums is important to get beautiful hair. Identify what your hair requires; do not rely on what is currently popular due to the market’s recent decline.
  1. Treat your hair with something special. I’ve been using the Olaplex treatment. It genuinely improves the softness and health of my hair.
  1. Wash your hair as soon as they become oily or dirty. Don’t wait for a specific day. Additionally, if you wash them frequently, opt for a mild shampoo.
  2. Always brush your hair. If possible, style them in a cute bun or ponytail.
  3. Avoid using styling products on a daily basis. They weaken your hair far more than you know. Stay away from them.

4. Make Personal Hygiene a Priority, and Smell Good

Have you ever met someone who smells so good that you want to be around them because their scent and freshness are irresistible?

Maintaining a clean and pleasant vibe is all that you need to attract the right people.

Who wants to connect with someone who has gone days or weeks without bathing and smells like a dead rat?

Therefore, hygiene should always be a priority. And don’t forget to take care of your personal hygiene.

Take a shower every day.

Invest in a good Perfume. They are worth the money.

By manicure, I do not mean you must visit a salon to have your nails done. Although, if you can, it would be great.

However, for now, simply trim them, file them into the proper shape you like, and paint them with a pretty nail polish color. I always go for a nude shade or a transparent coat, because they go with everything.

A woman with neat, tidy nails looks more attractive than someone who does not clean them on a regular basis. And if you need some help with self-manicure, here’s a complete gel nail polish kit that includes everything you’ll need. It has almost 9,000+ reviews, which is amazing!

6. Makeup – Keep it Natural

Enhancing your already beautiful features with a little makeup can completely transform your look. Then why not?

If you want to look polished, all you need is a little concealer to brighten up your eyes, some blush on your cheeks, or a coat of mascara to enhance your lashes.

If you wear makeup on a daily basis, the key is to apply it lightly and naturally. Just don’t overdo it.

Here are some of my all-time favorite makeup finds that won’t break the bank:

7. Scrub Your Lips to Keep Them Soft & Supple

Lips are one of the most delicate parts of your body. And one of the most beautiful but neglected.

So, look after them. Give them a little more attention. Scrub them at least twice or three times a week, but softly.

While brushing, gently scrub your lips with the same brush or scrub them with a towel while pat drying your face after a face wash. Simple, isn’t it?

8. Keep Your Teeth Clean & White

According to some facts, A brighter smile can make you look more attractive, educated, and even younger. While I do not believe all of this, I do believe that clean and white teeth are a sign of good health. Additionally, good health attracts people.

You can whiten them using whitening strips, mouthwash, or by having them professionally whitened at your dentist. It will take time. However, there is no better time to begin than now!

A quick DIY that I often use is rubbing salt+lemon together for about 10-20 seconds after brushing. It won’t make a great difference immediately, but it works.

9. Shave And Moisturize Your Body

To be honest, I’m not a fan of these “Girls simply cannot have hair on their bodies in public” standards.

However, I believe that shaving/waxing your legs instantly makes you feel feminine. And you feel comfortable in whatever you’re wearing. And the moment you get internal confidence, everything changes for you, girl!

10. Keep Yourself Hydrated

Your skin will be clearer, your hair and nails will be healthier, and your body will be in better shape if you drink enough water. Try substituting some of your soda, coffee, or juice for water until you drink at least 8 cups a day.

If you genuinely want to look pretty, the most important thing you can do is to drink plenty of water to ensure that your body’s water needs are met.

If you drink enough water your skin will be clearer, your hair and nails will be healthier, and your body will be in better shape. Try substituting some of your soda, coffee, or juice for water until you drink at least 8 cups a day.

While this is not a quick fix. In a long run, you’ll thank yourself for it.

11. Buy Clothes That Fit Your Body Type

Well, there is no reason to size down while shopping for clothes simply because you believe it will motivate you to lose weight. It may or may not motivate you, but in the long run, it will undoubtedly make you feel bad about yourself. That’s a definite NO-NO!

And you need not follow the latest fashion trends to look pretty. Ensure that all of your clothing fits properly. Avoid wearing clothing that is either too tight or too big.

None of your clothing should expose your underwear or is difficult to put on and take off. Additionally, they should not drop carelessly off your shoulders or hips or require adjustment throughout the day.

Properly fitted clothing is a simple solution to your how to look pretty dilemma. Additionally, oversized hoodies or clothing (when styled properly) can add an element of cuteness.

12. Accessorize Your Outfits With Cute Accessories

Accessorizing your outfits with a few cute rings, bracelets, neck chains, a watch, or earrings is a game-changer and genuinely makes you stand out. Even if you don’t put much effort into it.

13. Know your Worth

To look pretty, you must know your worth.

When you know who you are and what you’re worth, you show the rest of the world that you’re capable and confident.

As long as you’re happy with your own appearance, you don’t really give a damn what anyone else thinks about it.

14. Wear Clean and Ironed Clothes

This is one of the things I wish I’d known sooner.

If you appear clean and polished, you are more likely to be taken seriously by others. Furthermore, who doesn’t want to appear polished and professional at all times, regardless of the situation?

Wearing wrinkled or dirty clothing may make you look messy, unattractive, or even dirty.

Iron your clothes before wearing them and check that they are clean before putting them on.

15. Add more Fruits And Vegetables in your diet

If you’re wondering how to look pretty, fruits and vegetables are a sure bet!

Add green vegetables and fresh fruits to your diet. After a few weeks, you will notice a NOTICEABLE difference, trust me.

Include fruits as a snack and salads for dinner, as well as fresh juices in the morning, or in any other way you like.

Be ready for a more healthy and radiant complexion, girl!

16. Confidence

There is no point looking like an absolute beauty if you lack the confidence to own it.

However, how are you going to get there?

Accept who you are and not seek validation from others. Put yourself first and prioritize yourself.

Embrace your flaws, regardless of how many there are.

Confidence, I’m telling you, will be the first and final secret ingredient you’ll need to look pretty.

17. Maintain a proper posture.

I see so many people dressed outstandingly but walking with a hunched back, perhaps from working all day. However, let me tell you that this is not an attractive posture to look at.

Therefore, always sit and stand straight; this not only looks good but also helps protect your spine.

18. Use Rosewater to get Instant Freshness

Want to know how to look pretty instantly? Rosewater is the answer.

I’m really obsessed with splashing rose water every two hours on my face.

My skin looked so radiant and healthy that I began to overuse Rosewater! It gives instant freshness to your skin. And it feels so good on skin that you can’t get enough of it.

So, keep a spray bottle of rose water with you at all times and spray it whenever you feel sleepy or dull. It will instantly revitalize your skin and you look pretty in no time!

Thanks to rosewater, you’ll look fresh and beautiful in no time.

19. Radiate Positive Energy And Be Open and friendly

Have you ever noticed that out of five persons in a room, the one who radiates positivity and happiness has been always the life of the party, unconditionally loved by everyone?

Positivity is one of those things that cannot be faked. When you feel it, it naturally comes out.
Therefore, remain optimistic, not only for others but also for your own sake.

20. Always Give Yourself Compliments

Pamper yourself with compliments. For example ‘ girl, that eyeliner is perfect’ or You look hot in this dress”

Trust me, you won’t need any external validation if you love yourself. And, it is the most amazing thing that you can do for yourself.

21. Be friendly and respectful to everyone

Be kind to everyone you come in contact with. If you don’t know them, introduce yourself and address them by name. Inquire about their well-being and demonstrate an interest in their lives.

This is not to say that you should tolerate horrible treatment; if you need to tell someone to stop or leave you alone, do it firmly.
