5 steps to look better this year

We've all seen these makeover shows where someone goes in as an ugly duckling and almost instantly they are turned into a beautiful swan.  I'm sure you know the type of shows and you may have thought to yourself "I wish I could transform myself like that." If you have, this is the blog post for you.

Making big transformations in your life can take time, with that said you would be surprised how different you can look and feel within 12 months.  

In this post, I'm going to share with you 5 steps to looking better this year.

1) Whiten your teeth.

Other than sagging skin, nothing ages you as much as yellow teeth.  Yellow teeth not only look unhygienic but also make you look unfriendly.  Thankfully having yellow teeth isn't the end of the world.  

You have a few options when it comes to whitening your teeth, you can either go the full expensive route of purchasing veneers, but if you can't afford that don't worry.  Teeth whitening is inexpensive these days and even crooked white teeth look great.

You can purchase teeth whitening from your local dentist or a cheaper option is buying online, but be careful when buying online as you could get whitening gel that could damage your teeth.

2) Change your hair/grow your hair.

Older women, especially those who have become mothers tend to cut their hair off for convenience, however, this makes you look old.  To look better this year you should grow your hair into a style that suits you while being easy to maintain.  

Being a mom or an older woman doesn't mean that you have to have the typical bob style haircut.  For hair inspiration, you can check out websites like Pinterest or Instagram.

You may also want to consider adding colour to your hair.  Colour can brighten up your look and make you look a little younger.

3) Improve your skin.

You can improve your skin by exfoliating 3 times a week, drinking enough water per day and eating your 5 a day vegetables.  This will give you better skin than most people. You can take this a step further and remove any unflattering wrinkles you may have through botox injections for wrinkles.

Botox treatment is fairly affordable and it can be used from removing wrinkles, reducing your jawline, improving the fullness of your lips to reshaping your nose.

Botox is no longer for the rich and the famous, anyone can have it and you would be surprised how many people you know that are probably having it right now without you knowing.

4) Join a gym.

People think you have to be skinny to look great, but the truth couldn't be further away.  Athletic bodies look great, skinny bodies not so much. The great thing is any body-shape can look athletic, even if you are a larger lady.

Hitting the gym will transform your body over a year and not only will you look great but your confidence will also be increased.  I'm yet to meet a man or woman that can lift double their body weight who isn't confident. 

If you're not confident enough to join a gym you can join a 24-hour gym and go when it's quiet to start.  But honestly, don't worry about others in the gym, people are more supportive than you think and people who judge others don't tend to stay in the gym for long.

When in the gym be sure to lift weights and not just run on a treadmill.  Weights will reshape your body within the space of a year.

5) Buy new clothes

Chances are your old clothes are not flattering. 

People looking to improve their looks often let their wardrobes expire and will wear any old thing.  So go out and treat yourself. You don't have to wear designer gear, you can simply buy some new clothes that are in trend and look clean.  Trust me, you will feel so much better afterwards.


If you are looking to improve your looks this year, gain confidence and just feel better in yourself, get started with all of the above right now.  Within 12 months you will be thanking me, your new-found confidence will take you to new places and you will enjoy your life that little bit more.
