If you’ve not been feeling your most confident self recently, you’ve come to the right place. In this blog, we take a look at three simple tips every man should know to feel more positive and self assured.
- Don’t be afraid to embrace your hair loss
Hair loss is something that a lot of men go through. In fact, it’s thought that approximately half of all men over the age of 50 will experience it and many people are affected at a much younger age. Losing your locks can be an extremely upsetting process to go through – and it can have a huge impact on your self confidence. However, there’s no reason why you should be ashamed. Many guys choose to accept their changing appearance and embrace their baldness with pride, so why not follow suit? The chances are you’ll look great with your new ‘do.
If you’re not ready to say goodbye your tresses just yet, don’t panic. There are a variety of treatments you can try that could stop or even reserve your hair loss. For example, you could use finasteride. This is taken as a tablet every day. It works to stop the enzyme that converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone – the hormone which is responsible for hair loss. To find out more about finasteride and the other treatments available, you should speak to your doctor or you could carry out your own research online by visiting sites such as Online Doctor LloydsPharmacy.
- Look after your skin
If you’re not taking the time to look after your skin, it can be easy for your confidence to plummet. So, if you’re keen to feel differently about yourself, you could try fine tuning your grooming routine. You could start by getting into the habit of following a daily skincare routine. Apart from washing your face, you could cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise your skin. During the day, you may also want to protect your skin by applying a moisturiser with SPF. Making the effort to care for your complexion can keep blemishes and wrinkles at bay, as well helping you feel fresh, clean and confident all day, every day.
- Upgrade your wardrobe
There’s no denying that the clothes you wear can have a significant impact on your confidence. If you get dressed in the morning and don’t like what you see in the mirror, it can make you feel unhappy. So, if your wardrobe consists of nothing but ill-fitting outfits and worn-out shoes, why not add some new pieces into the mix? Whether you go for a pair of soft denim jeans, smart jacket or crisp shirt, some retail therapy could be just what you need to give your self confidence a quick, much needed boost.
Regaining your self confidence might not happen overnight, but keeping these tips in mind could help you take a step in the right direction.
