Its time for you to dress up and bring on the glamour! It’s your big date and there’s probably nothing you want more than to make a superb first impression. I bet you have the perfect dress selected and the perfect shoes and the perfect accessories but are you missing the basics? Do you have to check on something more?
Here are a few basic tips that every guy notices in a girl and every girl (in fact every guy too) should adhere too, date or no date.
- 1 .Cleanliness
Nothing beats cleanliness and no amount of beauty products could possibly be a substitute for a clean body. Bathe before you date. Make sure to clean out all those areas where you perspire with soap and water. There are plenty of body shower gels that smell great, which are also a great option. Soak yourself in a bath tub or run yourself a bath or have a shower (I don’t recommend the latter for ecological reasons) – either ways smell fresh. When you feel fresh, it shows. Clean out your ears and the back of your neck. It’s the spots people often forget to rub down. How would you like to see your hot date dressed like a star and smelling great but having dirt ears?? That’s exactly how your date is going to feel about you and your ears. So don’t forget to clean them up.
2. Smell Good
An important tip – Always apply fragrance directly on your skin instead of on your clothes. Naked skin always always wins. The smell filters though your clothes and spreads pleasantness about you. Even if you overdo it with the perfume, the clothes kind of absorb it, leaving only a pleasant lingering smell rather than a smell that can cause water to come out of your date’s eyes.
While perfumes are applied on the skin, if you prefer using a deodorant, then stick to using them on clothes and not directly on the skin.
3. Nail Care
While it’s not compulsory for you to get a manicure and pedicure done every time you go out for a date, it does help to have clean finger and toe nails. It’s rather horrible if you show up for your date with neatly cut nails filled with black goo! It’s not compulsory that you have to paint your nails. My mother has never painted her nails but I have never seen cleaner finger and toe nails. Her nails are always well shaped and they look pink and healthy.
It’s not such a great idea to come with neon pink painted nails on your first date. You don’t want to blind your date for life. Opt for more subtle shades, if you like bright colors; pick something bright like a subtle shade with shimmer.
Don’t overdo it on your first date. Check the location of your first date and dress appropriately. There’s no point in heading out in a mid thigh length fluffy dress if it’s below freezing temperatures. You really don’t want to spend your first date with him trying to save you from hypothermia. Too much of skin show may send out the wrong message. As will crumpled, wrinkled and torn clothing. He may think that you just haven’t bothered enough to dress up.
Follow these basic tips and prepare to make a dazzling first impression.
