I think we can all agree that we want to look and feel the best we can. When we think of ways to take care of our bodies, working out and eating healthy might be the first things that come to mind– but what about your skin?
Think about it. Not only is having good skin beneficial for first impressions, but it is also a confidence booster that will dramatically improve other aspects of your life, such as your career and relationships. Here are all the reasons why you should take care of yourself, especially your skin:
What is the first thing you notice when you meet someone new? Their face. And that’s what they will notice when they see you.
Do you really want to risk meeting the woman of your dreams while your face is in the middle of a breakout? Or finally landing a new client you have been working on for months and greeting them with a huge pimple?
When you have a breakout, it often makes you feel like it’s all people will see when they look at you. Whether it’s one spot or an entire area of your face, it will surely take over your mind. When your focus is on your skin issues rather than the task at hand, it is likely that you will experience a decrease in confidence, that will leave you with a more shy and self-conscious demeanor. You want to give a good first impression, and you want people to meet the best version of yourself.
You can’t hide under a beard forever. Having smooth, clear skin will give you a look and feeling of youth and health. A fresh face also indicated that you have good hygiene and take care of yourself.
Improving your skin will improve your interactions with others; Not only by boosting your confidence and making you want to show off how handsome you look, but by helping you appear more approachable and trustworthy to others.
It’s a no brainer that you want to look good for that special someone, so why not be proactive and make sure that you do?
Even after that first impression, you want to stay looking your very best. When getting to know someone new, a breakout can also make you appear more guarded which will make it much harder for them to get to know the real you. In a relationship, you want to be able to open up to your partner. It’s hard to feel secure around others until you feel secure about yourself, but when you are feeling your best you can present your best self to the world.
Think about going on a date and sitting across from your girlfriend, or someone you hope to one day call yours. Your self-esteem will be a huge factor while approval from the person across the table is weighing on your mind. Your appearance is a big part of that factor, and it takes more than what you wear for someone to like you. You want to look your best, and by using the proper skincare you can make that happen. So what’s stopping you?
When you have an important business meeting, interview or presentation, your first move is to put on a suit and tie. The focus is on you, and you want to make sure you look your best. But beyond what you’re wearing, what can you do about your face?
Your boss, prospective employer or client is looking at your face as you engage in conversation. To show that you take care of yourself, and to boost your confidence, having clear skin is a huge benefit for your professional life.
If your mind is preoccupied by the acne on your face, you will be more stressed and less focused on your work. When you look and feel your best, you will also perform your best.
All of these reasons tie back into one important factor: confidence.
If your skin is dry and breaking out, all you will want to do is hide your face. You won’t have the confidence to go out or meet new people. It will also take your focus off of work and other priorities while you stress about how you can fix it.
The more attractive you think you are, the more confident you will be in these situations.
