Itís a pity that the humankind supposes that there are only two sorts of secretaries: the delectably stunning and the downright hideous. Those lucky enough to belong to the first category get away with their dawdling typing speed and dreadful grammar by shaking their tooshies and batting their eyelashes. The second category is composed of the actually proficient ones who could manage a meeting, word-process a note, answer a phone call and dispatch a gift to the bossís mom simultaneously.

Letís not talk too much of the first type. Bosses could do with them as an antidote to their bitterly aging wife. Male co-workers need them as a tonic when coffee fails to do the task. Women co-workers require someone to gossip about. The delectably stunning secretaries achieve their function in the office.

The more significant thing is if you are a secretary belonging to the second group. Okay, possibly downright repulsive is taking it to the extreme. This piece of writing is not out to make you feel bad about yourself than you already are. I truly believe that being unattractive is not a crime, but not taking action about it is. So how do you transform ugly into less ugly?

First, get together enough courage and honesty and strip all your clothes and stare in the mirror. Really stare in the mirror. Judge yourself and mentally generate a roll of all your pleasant advantages. Itemize all the ruinous disadvantages.

The key thing here is to realize the psychology of beauty. Stunning persons have balanced faces, and they have features of what are thought to be womanly. Womanly features for women include large eyes, cute noses, and full lips. Think of Betty Boop or Barbie.

Breasts are something that magically fascinates men. While men may be interested in great ones, the magnitude that they are magnetized to is not as great as the majority of women deem. So donít be hopeless if you donít have huge sized breasts.

In some societies where food is insufficient, a few men get magnetized to women who have more meat and fat. In places where there is food abundance, men might get magnetized to stick thin women. Hey, Calista Flockhart bagged Harrison Ford after all, and anorexic bodies dominate the fashion runways. The thing here is you are not exceedingly fat or exceedingly skinny. Aspire to look healthy in size.

Men also find clear skin as attractive. Think of it this way, rosy apples makes you yearn to bite, bite and bite; pock marked lemons make you do a vinegary face.

Second, take a peep at your wallet to make sure if you have enough money to go on a modest shopping spree. But before you go out, put to advantage your expert researching capability and hunt the internet for tips on using :

Concealers. (magnificent for covering skin defects)

Foundation. (Choosing the right shade can work miracles in enhancing your face.)

Make-up. Make-up should be applied to enhance your features. There are also make-up techniques that can make your eyes, nose and lips seem bigger or smaller, anything that is considered necessary to closely attain symmetry of your features.

Underwear. (push up bras or breast decreasing bra, padded panties or especially resilient girdles, depending on whether you want to diminish or increase a body part)

Skin enhancing creams. (Do not go down the trap of wanting your white skin to become tanned or your olive skin to become white. For this, skin creams are not the solution. You will have to refer to a psychiatrist for quite a few meetings on self-acceptance. I am chatting about making your skin clear and smooth. A nourishing diet and working out will do wonders of course and creams are just there for the bonus shot.)

Third, test to find out if your unattractive face goes with a hostile attitude. Heavens help you if it does. Your hostile attitude may stem from your insecurity, but not a soul in reality cares where it comes from, aside from your one or two real comrades. The rest of the office doesnít crave your lemon face and your tart attitude. This is why they steer clear of you and you sip your coffee alone during coffee breaks.

From now on, you must perform smiling in the mirror. If your smile is a tigerís grimace with matching pointed yellow teeth, then stare at Julia Robertís movies until you can send off the same level of sunny smile. While you are at it, take a pause to schedule a dentistís appointment.

Your separation may have erased your social poise so it would help to exercise them once more. A relaxed ďhiĒ or ďgood morningĒ could cause your officemates a pleasant bump and would send a valuable signal of a new you. When you have ascertained enough bond, invite those who are most responsive to lunch or host a simple after office dinner in your house. The keyword here is: friendly. Yes, thatís the brand new you.

While you may on no account pull off belonging to the class of the adorably stunning, it is at least feasible to eternally cancel your link to the downright unattractive society. Again, being unattractive is not a crime, but not doing something about it is.
