Most people adopt a rigorous exercise routine and diet plan so that they can feel better in their clothes.
But if you really want to kick things up a notch this year, ask yourself what you can do to look better naked.
After all, if we look and feel good naked, we’ll look and feel good with our clothes on too.
Here are 15 simple ways you can look better naked, and they aren’t as hard as you might think.
1) Establish Routines With Your Food
While everyone is out there telling you to get creative with your foods, reducing the variety of foods you eat can actually help you consume fewer calories during a meal.
If you eat the same thing for breakfast and lunch every day, it’s one less thing to think about, and it can contribute to better choices to make the most of the meals you are eating.
2) Use Anti-cellulite Products
You can pick up any number of bath products that are designed to help you scrub away cellulite.
It happens to be one of the main reasons women avoid wearing shorts and even bathing suits.
Every woman on the planet has some amount of cellulite so don’t let it bother you so much.
If you still want to do something about it, try a scrubbing product to reduce the look of it and soften the skin in that area.
3) Get More Sun
We all look better when we have been kissed by the sun. Consider getting a few minutes of sun each day.
No more than 20 minutes a day is all you need to add some natural glow to your body. Plus, the added vitamin D helps ward off depression and anxiety in many people.
4) Change-up Your Exercise Routine
If you want to have a better body, you are going to have to exert a little effort to achieve that goal.
However, that doesn’t mean that you need to kill yourself at the gym to look better. Add some weights to your routine or walk for an extra 10 minutes the next time you head out.
You’ll be surprised how small changes can impact your body in big ways.
5) Add Kettlebells to Your Workout
You might not give much thought to using a kettlebell, but the design and function of these “weights” can elongate your muscles and make you look seriously toned.
You don’t need to lift as much weight with a kettlebell to see dramatic results and the exercises are pretty fun to do in the comfort of your own home.
6) Leave the Lights On
Photographers will tell you to dim the lights and use a single light to make your body look slimmer, tighter and more radiant.
7) Cleanse Your Back
When you are cleaning your body, don’t forget about the back. If you have acne on your back, be sure to buy a product specifically designed to treat back acne.
It is usually harder to treat than other body acne because it is covered by clothes and creates more sweat and dirt build up than other parts of your body.
8) Don’t Go Hairless
Brazilian waxes were all the rage for a while, but women have started to return to more natural looking bikini areas.
If you want to enhance your body when you are naked, don’t go totally hairless.
9) Keep Makeup Simple and Natural
Rather than painting on red lipstick and bright nail polish, opt for something a little more subdued.
Try nude color nail polish to show off the natural beauty of your hands and feet rather than draw attention to them with bold colors.
10) Use Coconut Oil
If you want to add the look of a natural glow to your body, pick up some coconut oil.
You’ll find that your skin not only feels softer and smoother, but it makes it look better too.
11) Try Spray Tanning Products
If you live somewhere that gets cold weather and a lot of snow, consider a light spray tan to perk up your appearance and keep you from looking pasty throughout the winter months.
12) Lunge Your Way to A Killer Bod
Sure, lunges suck. But they can work wonders for your body, especially your butt.
Doing even 10 lunges a day can impact your body in a big way. Anyone can do 10 lunges so give it a try.
13) Cut Out Inflammatory-causing Foods
If you want to reduce the look of bloating in your stomach, cut out foods like citrus, broccoli, fried foods and soft drinks that will make your stomach look bigger than it is.
14) Get a Massage
Massages help to remove toxins that are found in our skin, and it can help create a natural glow on your skin. Plus, it feels amazing.
15) Add Some Spice to Your Life
Spices help to keep our digestive tract going and help our skin look younger. If you want to improve the way you look when you are naked, add some spice to your life and see how much better you feel.
