Beauty is Only Skin Deep

It is said that beauty is only skin deep though as you do not judge a book by it's cover and, of course, that the real character of the person is more than appearance.

But the harsh realities of life state that a person's appearance is the first impression of what that a person is like. It's a bit shocking to know that you are "generalized" at one glance from prospective friends, lovers and even potential employers. Indeed, it has been shown that even small babies tend to make decisions on their faces, that appears before them, they respond better to the symmetrical facial appearance.

This first impression is the subconscious level, and this is largely out of our control. It follows that the appearance of your face, can open the doors. Your good looks will give you the opportunities that would not present themselves otherwise. It is also helpful to expand our sense of clothing and what looks good on us but nothing is more powerful than a face that you present.  We just live in a superficial world.

Finding the best skin products that are suitable for your skin type can be a process. I know myself that some creams may cause mild skin eruptions, so I look for those applications that are chemical free.

If your skin is dry, moisturizing skin applications will keep the skin supple and smooth away wrinkles and fine lines.There are good moisturizing oil-based chemical free applications.

Daily skincare treatment is necessary to have good and healthy looking skin.  This is true for our young people too. If they have skin issues, because they can suffer from a sense of rejection of their peers, real or imagined, that and can be seriously compromise their self-confidence and self esteem.

So, beauty is only skin deep, and it is also the public's way of determining the opportunities it is going to present you. Whether we like it or not - it is reality. Take care of your skin, know your skin type, provide it with what it needs to look healthy!
