Hello handsome! How confidence (and sexy skin) is a winning combo.

How to be attractive. Not a simple question. There are some guys who seem to attract women without much effort.  Million dollar genes? Thick wallet ? Cant fail repartee?  Well here's the truth of it -  very few men wake up looking god like (though a dedicated grooming regime helps but more on that later). Fear not brethrens - when it comes to being attractive there are things you can do even if genetics and your bank balance let you down..

Admit when you’re wrong. 

Forget big brown eyes, pecs to die for and an unwavering commitment to tantric sex, the ability to admit when you screwed up is by far your quickest passport to attractiveness. Why? Because so many of you refuse to do it. We spend our lives desperately trying to look worldly and clever and in control. We know everything, you can trust us, we’re your go-to guy – but isn’t it exhausting? Admitting you were wrong, or that you didn’t know about something, isn’t weakness; it’s courageous. Boom. Hot.

Get a hair cut. 

Now this really is easy. Get yourself to a decent barbershop or salon and build a relationship with a good hairdresser. Get him or her to make notes about what you have done each time, and get it done as often as you can afford. Try out faddish styles if you must, but know when to let them go.  If you feel amazing, you’ll come across as attractive. It’s, like, science or whatever.

Invest in a skincare regimen.

A solid skin-care routine is the cornerstone of good grooming. Well-cared-for skin means you’ll experience less frequent breakouts, you’ll show less irritation and redness, and you’ll stave off visible signs of  aging. A little time and invest  will help ensure you age more gracefully for the rest of your life. More important than all that, though, is the satisfaction that comes from a daily ritual of taking care of yourself. Look good. Feel good.

Tell others they're attractive or interesting. 

A really quick way for someone to be alerted to your attractiveness is to highlight it in others, did you know? Oh, you did? How clever you are. When you point out the good qualities in someone else, you’re encouraging people to think of you in a different way. It works in all walks of life. Tell that guy at work he’s doing a great job (if it’s the truth) and he’ll start looking at your favourably and, the key thing here, will tell others. You can’t lose.

Don’t boast about  the size of your wallet.

Men who go on about their possessions and how much they earn, or have in the bank, comes across as massively insecure rather than attractive. Sure there’ll be those who’ll be only too happy to help you spend your millions – but they’re with you for the wrong reasons. It’s a hollow victory.

Learn "You". 

A man who is confident in the way he dresses is much more attractive than someone who follows all the style rules and gets it “just right”. What you wear -it’s about your personality too.  Give a nod to fashion, inspiration if you must, but add your own- its much more attractive to be a man who does it his way.

Don’t substitute a gym membership for a personality. 

Look, we know there’s a big pressure to be buff these days. And yes going for it at the gym is a way to boost confidence, and that's great, but remember there’s no point having a banging body if a) you’re spending too much time at the gym to be off having some actual fun with it and b) you decide that’s all you need and let your personality slide. Your beautiful body is the mere shop-window – it can get people to look, but if you want people to buy what you’re selling, you’re going to need the patter to back it up.

Humility is great, but avoid the humble brag.

This is a fine line, because nobody likes a braggart, but overdoing the self-deprecation is also a massive no-no. A man who is confident about his achievements, but can acknowledge he still might have a way to go, is super-attractive. Celebrate how great you are, but make sure it’s not a party of one.

Wash behind your ears. 

You’ve no idea how many men forget this. Wash them every day. If someone’s going to come right in for a nuzzle, you want to smell your fresh best. If you’ve never experience what the back of an unclean ear smells like, you’re lucky. Get scrubbing.
