How To Get A Bright, Fresh Face Every Morning!
Think of someone you know who always looks happy and healthy - what is it about them that stands out? Are they smiling? Joyful? Glowing? Maybe they just look awake and alive and ready to greet the day! These are the people that draw you in, that you want to be around, and that have serious charisma. Whether you work a 9-to-5, go to class, or work from home, there are a million reasons to show off your best face every morning. Here are just a couple…
- When you feel good, you look good.
- (...and when you look good, you feel good!)
- Your positive energy rubs off on those around you.
- Who doesn’t want to be happy and healthy?
For example, which person would you rather be partnered with for an important project?
I’m picking the happy gal on the the left - do you agree? If so, here are three things to do to present your freshest, brightest face every morning!
Many people say that it takes more muscles to frown than to smile. Whether that’s the case or not doesn’t matter too much in this instance; the point is that smiling is a great way to present yourself at work or home, and smiles are recognized across most cultures as a friendly expression. Think of how much more engaging someone is when they have a warm expression on their face. If you don’t believe that smiling makes a difference, the next time you are stressed out or angry, go smile at yourself in the mirror. The simple act of observing a smile (even your own!) can lighten your mood and relax your face from stress and worry.
Use sunscreen or a hat!
With summer around the corner (and even in the winter time), you’ll want to protect your skin from sun-damage when going outside. Harmful UVA and UVB rays can wreak a lot of havoc on sensitive face and neck skin. Dark spots and freckles can occur with too much exposure, and these can change the way you feel about your skin. Even if you’re just going out for a short run, grab a hat and sunscreen to protect your skin from the elements - 20 years from now, you’ll thank yourself!
Use a daily cream!
Finding the right products for your skin care routine can be pretty intimidating - there are so many options out there! But finding what works for you is essential if you want to take good care of your skin, and present your clearest, brightest face every morning. If you’re pressed for time in the mornings (or shelf space in the bathroom), check out Porcelana’s Daily Tone Brightening Complex - it’s a multi-functional cream that brightens your skin tone, evens it out, moisturizes, and has SPF 15!
