Do you want to look your best when presenting yourself as a woman?
The good news is that looking attractive is less about innate beauty and more about how you present yourself.
In fact, several studies have shown that physical attractiveness is mainly influenced by “self-care” – meaning how you groom yourself, style your hair, and dress.
This means that grooming and self care are a big part of your feminine image!
In this blog post filled with trans / crossdressing advice, I share five simple grooming practices that should be part of your regular beauty routine.
1. Hand Care
Your hands say a LOT about you!
Since your hands may be larger than the average woman’s, it’s especially important to take good care of them. The last thing you want is for your hands to draw unwanted attention.
- Every 1-2 weeks: Give yourself a manicure – or better yet, get a manicure at a nail salon. Clip or file your nails and push back the cuticles with a cuticle pusher.
- Daily: Clean underneath your fingernails with nail brush and apply hand cream several times per day.
2. Hair Removal
You already know that beard stubble and chest hair can undermine your feminine image. But it’s essential to consider other often neglected areas too.
Do you have unwanted hair in any of these particular spots?
- Nose and ears
- Knuckles and toes
- Bikini area
- Once per week: Shave, trim, wax, and/or pluck the above-mentioned areas as needed.
Exfoliation is the process of scrubbing off dead skin cells. Dead skin cells can dull your complexion and lead to ingrown hairs.
Exfoliation will give you smoother, younger looking skin, which can greatly enhance your appearance as a crossdresser or transgender woman.
- Once or twice per week: Exfoliate your face and body using a washcloth, loofah, or exfoliating scrub. (When exfoliating your face, be sure to use facial products only.)
4. Foot Care
It’s easy to forget your feet, especially during the winter, when they are covered up with shoes and socks. But that’s no excuse to ignore them.
Could you imagine a beauty icon like Marilyn Monroe or Angelina Jolie with cracked heels and ragged toenails? No way – and neither should you.
Twice per month: Treat yourself to a pedicure at home or in a salon. Trim your toenails and (optionally) apply polish. Remove calluses with a pumice stone.
5. Face Mask
Applying a face mask once per week should be part of every girl’s routine. Besides targeting specific skincare concerns, relaxing with a mask is a great way to pamper yourself.
There are face masks designed to address every concern from acne to wrinkles. In addition to cream and clay masks, sheet masks are a popular and convenient option.
- Once per week: Apply a face mask suited to your skin.
