Get Your Nails Done
If you think getting a manicure and pedicure is optional - think again. Visit a salon and ask one of the professionals to give you the works. They prevent hangnails and nail damage and get rid of ugly overgrown cuticles. The procedures involve massaging your hands, feet, and legs.
After a long day and hurrying around, a sexy mani-pedi gives your look polish and style. Most last for up to two weeks. Getting one done regularly is therapeutic.
Put on Red Lips
Scientific studies prove lipsticks boost your confidence and make you feel good. When you feel good about yourself, your body looks good too.
In 2011, researchers from Boston University and Harvard University found that women who wore makeup felt confident. And they were perceived to be more reliable and competent to other people.
Another study conducted in France in 2013 found that “red lips highlighted increased estrogen levels, sexual arousal, and health." Yes, red lipstick increases the positive perception of our faces!

Work on Your Glow
There is a genuine reason why most bodybuilders and models are perfectly tanned. Tanning helps you look well-toned and trim, and gives your skin a radiant and healthy glow. You have so many options when you want to get tanned – from a DIY tanning product to visiting your nearest tanning salon.
Lying down in the sun and baking for hours is bad for you, so try fake tans and tanning lotions as alternatives. Work toward getting your skin tone even with these products - often moisturize and consider body spray tanning if you're showing off a lot of skin on a special occasion.

We keep hearing how important it is to drink at least eight glasses of water every day. Your body is 70 percent water, so keep it hydrated to function at an optimum level.
When you don't drink enough water, your kidneys don't function properly, placing stress on your liver. And a stressed liver struggles to filter toxins from your body.
Staying hydrated ensures that your skin is radiant, and your body works correctly. Feeling good makes you look good.
Put on Heels
Are you wearing your sexy bandage dress for the party? If yes, pair it with a pair of heels or stilettos. Wearing heels makes you taller, and accentuates your legs, making them look longer and leaner. High heels will also enhance your confidence.
Did you know wearing stilettos improves your sex life? Dr. Maria Cerruto, an Italian urologist, said, “Women often have difficulty in carrying out the right exercises for the pelvic zone and wearing heels is a good solution."
Like many women, I like high-heeled shoes. And it’s good to know they have potential health benefits too.
Your skin helps regulate your body temperature and, importantly, acts as a barrier against harmful UV rays, germs, and infection.
For your skin to do its job correctly, it needs to be well hydrated, and this means you should moisturize regularly. Moisturizers curb the loss of water in the outermost layer of your skin, the epidermis. They also enhance the appearance of your skin and improve its texture almost instantly.

Exfoliation is a cosmetic procedure that unclogs your pores by removing the dead skin cells from your epidermis. Exfoliating has a lot of benefits – it reduces breakouts on your skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines as well as wrinkles, helps retain your tan, and keeps your skin healthy. You can exfoliate using readymade scrubs, exfoliating gloves, or a pumice stone.
There are so many exfoliating products available on the market today, choose one, and you can perform this procedure at home.
However, when you want something more powerful, head to your dermatologist for a skin peel. “Specially formulated skin peels are more effective than microdermabrasion but involve a few days of visible peeling skin,” explains Dr. Mark Edinburgh, a doctor from the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Get a Haircut
Socialite and philanthropist Evelyn Lauder once said, “One of the most important things about looking youthful is to have a modern haircut.” And it is true! You feel like a new person after getting a new haircut. What’s more, getting a haircut is also good for your hair – it gets rids of split ends and encourages it to grow.
If you want to do something completely different, get your hair colored. Say goodbye to the old, and hello to the new you.

Hire a Stylist
We all have different body shapes. For instance, apple-shaped women have slimmer hips and broader chests and waists, and pear-shaped women have more full hips and narrower waists. Want to know how you can look thinner and leaner without losing any weight?
The clothes that make you look curvy dramatically depend on your body shape. Find the right dress fit to accentuate the best parts of your body, and voila. Wearing correctly fitted clothes helps you look good, and it makes you feel good about yourself.
Visit the Sauna
A sauna has so many benefits in addition to a place where you can relax and unwind. Regular visits to the sauna do great things for your body.
How your body gets rids of the toxins is through sweat. And that is just what you do in a sauna, sweat. You sweat a lot, which means you are flushing toxins out of your body.
Additionally, saunas improve your immune system by producing white blood cells.
Are you still debating whether you should visit the sauna this weekend? Saunas deep clean your skin, and they are also a great way to relieve all the stress on your body. Do yourself a favor, and book an appointment at the sauna today.
Detoxification or detox is a medicinal or physiological removal of toxic substances from the human body.
Detox diets are trendy, and there are many available choices today. Some allow you to drink only liquids, while others encourage you to eat certain vegetables and fruits.
Although difficult to follow, the right detox appropriately done can leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated with increased energy levels and improved cognitive capacity.
Whether these diets work or not is still under debate. Dr. Michelle Schoffro, author of the book ‘The 4-Week Ultimate Body Detox’, says, “When done correctly, detox diets support the body’s natural detoxification systems through food and lifestyle choices.”
Try one for yourself and see if it works.
And in Conclusion
Jennifer Love Hewitt once said, "The fun part of being a girl is that there are little beauty things you can do to make yourself feel special."
Always remember, however, to keep your body fit and healthy. There is no substitute for a balanced diet and exercise to get you feeling sexy and alluring. Otherwise, these quick fixes and routines will help you look great when pressed for time.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have a sexy body?
We believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder. However, if you're interested in studies on sexy bodies, we have one.
The study, published in 2012 by British researchers, asked 40 female and 40 male Caucasian heterosexuals with an average age of just over 19 to design their ideal bodies, one for themselves and one for a hypothetical mate.
The results revealed astonishing consistency in what an ideal body looked like, whether male or female.
The male ideal is an inverted pyramid with broad shoulders and a small waist, while the female is an hourglass with a low waist-to-hip ratio. Additionally, (not a good one to read), both women and men preferred slimmer female bodies than the real female participants possessed.
