5 Reasons Why Being On-Camera Makes You Hotter

Want to be more attractive to, um, everyone? Trying spending some more time on-camera. I'm not taking about your daily selfies (though those help too).

What would the landscape of your life look like if you could walk around as hi person day-to-day? Imagine it for minute. Really do it...
