Exercise

OK, so I said you could look better without any pain, but the pain that comes from a good workout is not the same as the excruciating pain of having your body cut open so the fat can be cut out. In fact, once you get into an exercise regime, pain will be transformed into pleasure as you get those endorphins pumping and as you see your stomach getting flatter and flatter!

Drink More Water

If your skin is starting to show the tell-tale signs of aging, get yourself to the faucet and start drinking. Water is free and refreshing and it has the ability to improve the appearance of your skin.

When you are well-hydrated, your skin will be plumper, and any wrinkles will be smoothed out because your skin will be benefitting from the moisture. Water can also help you to achieve a clearer complexion, providing you drink at least eight glasses a day.

Update Your Wardrobe

If you don’t like the way your body looks in clothes, it might be that you are choosing items that do not flatter your body type. If you choose flattering fashion, you will be able to fool friends and family into thinking you really have gone under the knife.

Use Body-Boosting Products

There is a range of creams and serums out there that can improve your appearance greatly and many of them comprise of mostly natural substances. So, if you feel like your boobs are starting to sag, try a breast lift cream instead of putting yourself at risk by getting implants, or if you want to get rid of postpartum stretch marks, try a product like bio-oil to help them fade before you opt for surgical intervention.

Cut Your Hair

The wrong haircut can make you look older and much dowdier than you actually are, which is why it might be worth investing in a quality haircut from a top salon. You don’t have to go wild and get a dramatic style; you just need to choose a style that complements your face to make yourself look younger.

Invest in Quality Makeup

Buying the right makeup for your skin tone will go a long way to giving you a fresh, youthful look, but you should also look for makeup that moisturizes if you want to protect your skin. If you have scars or stretch marks, instead of booking yourself in for a laser treatment, why not try professional cover-up makeup which will mask any flaws?

Nobody is perfect, but there is so much you can do to enhance your appearance without seeing a plastic surgeon, that you can always look your best without breaking your budget or hurting yourself in the process.
