11 Ways to Instantly Feel Sexier
“A woman who knows what she likes. Confidence in her skin. She doesn’t put down other women, and she aligns herself with other women. It comes with age and experience. I hope younger women are cultivating their wit and wisdom. Sex and seduction are not just your looks, beauty and body.”
— Dita von Teese
Whenever I find myself looking to drastically improve my appearance, I like to consider all things possible from head to toe. SO, let’s begin…
Regardless of your personal hair ritual, you can always add some spice to it by introducing a hair fragrance. Anointing yourself with oils and perfumes can instantly improve your mood and self-lust. You may have found that you prefer using a certain conditioner because of the fragrance and how good it makes your hair smell. Well, for those moments that you just need a little boost, create your own hair potion for stirring up your senses. Of course, you will naturally radiate an intensely attractive scent—especially around your cycle—but why not increase its potency? Oh, and if you sleep next to someone at night, be mindful of how much you use, but I promise unless they have the most sensitive nose ever, they will love your ‘natural’ aroma.
I like to use anointing oils that I prepare myself, but here are some good hair fragrances:
There’s just something about a face that illuminates. Whether or not you use makeup to achieve this look, you want to be sure that you have a great moisturizer and serum that will give you a natural radiant glow. Achieving this kind of glow will not only make you feel and look more attractive, but you will feel great about nourishing your skin. You want to invest in good skincare in general. I use a polypeptide cream on days that I don’t wan to apply makeup, and the difference is incredible. My skin not only looks healthier, but it feels so smooth and soft.
Here are a few of my favorite face moisturizers and serums:

This is pretty simple. We all know that putting on a red lip can make you feel like one of the most powerful women alive. But, if that’s not your thing, or if it doesn’t fit the environment, perhaps invest in a great lip tint and lip gloss. Visibly healthy and hydrated lips will enhance your overall look, and will make you feel more confident as you speak.

Now be honest, do you brush your teeth as often as you should? Are you flossing?? Okay, well I know that flossing doesn’t sound sexy, but it is a necessity. You will feel considerably more confident about yourself when your smile is as radiant as your personality. You’ll want to invest in a teeth cleaning kit and a teeth whitening tool. You want to feel like you just came from the dentist, but without the discomfort. Deep clean your mouth (brush your tongue, floss your teeth, remove plaque, etc). After deep cleaning, apply a whitening tool of your choice. Depending on how white your teeth look now will help you determine the most effective method for you. I like to use hydrogen peroxide, but I also invest in having my teeth whitened professionally, so I don’t need much strength. You may want to look into whitening strips, gels, etc. I’d also like to add that mouthwash is not optional. This way, if you are planning to be around people, you will have no reason to feel self-conscious about your smile, or your breathe (you may also want to keep gum with you). People will want to lean in more as you speak, and you will definitely feel more confident. Now, obviously healthy gums are important for your overall dental hygiene, but it can also influence the way that you are perceived by others. As a woman, the whiter your teeth, the more you are seen as healthy, successful, well-off, attractive and trustworthy.

HAND, FEET & NAILS
Soft hands are just pleasant to experience. If you’ve ever shaken the hand of someone with dry and rough skin, you know what I mean. It’s just like with the rest of your body, you want your hands and feet to feel soft and delicate. Invest in a good hand and foot cream. While we’re at it, be sure that this is a part of your moisturizing routine. Care for your skin with intention, love and adoration. As for your nails, invest in a good nail care kit with cuticle oil to give yourself a proper pedicure.
I like to use natural shea butter, coconut butter, coconut oil, etc., but here’s a good hand and foot cream:
Also, I love this oil for my natural nails:
We all know that feeling that we have after we’ve just buffed our dead skin away, shaved our legs and moisturized the hell out of our body. That is the feeling that you are trying to create. Invest in a good, hydrating body exfoliant and dry brush. I love Trader Joe’s Lavender Scrub and have purchased almost all of them on the shelves. It leaves your skin extremely soft (softer than you could even imagine) and you have natural glow. Speaking of which, you’ll also want to invest in a lovely body shimmer oil or bronzer to achieve a captivating glow with each move that you make.
Here are a few of my favorite body buffing tools:

Invest in timeless lingerie and start collecting articles that remind just how sexy you are. If you just have a basic color-coordinated bra and panty set, that’s a start. But I want you to invest in a set that accentuates your body in all ways possible. Do your research and figure out what styles will best present your beauty. While you’re at it, start looking into other ways to adorn your body. You can invest in jewels, temporary tattoos, glitter, etc.
Like Dita said, a women who knows what she likes has confidence in her skin. Confidence is the most beauty and sexy aspect of any woman. As we all know, people are naturally more attracted to confident people. Remind yourself of just how beautiful you are on the inside and let that energy exude from every pore.
