If you think that changing your beauty ritual won't improve your love life, you'll change your mind after learning the results of a recent study headed by Revlon USA and Fordham University.
Researchers asked participating women to look at themselves in the mirror, spray on perfume, put on makeup, eat their fave candy, and take a deep breath. They did this routine for four days and wrote down their observations: 71 percent of them shared that they had an increased desire for romance, 69 percent were more open-minded to look for love, 77 percent felt more sociable, and 74 percent said they were more confident to flirt.
It's also important to note that the new beauty habit also affected the behavior of the people around the participants: 85 percent observed a positive change in how others dealt with them, 65 percent shared that their dates or partners showered them with compliments more often, and 56 percent of the women divulged that others flirted with them more.
This simple study proves that giving special attention to yourself raises your self-esteem. You feel more confident, which, according to our male correspondents, is always an attractive trait.
