Beautiful Skin Makes a Good First Impression

Whether you are a professional who spends the day in an office, a consultant working on assignments for clients, or a freelance journalist scooping stories on the street we are all jumping from one first impression to the next. We want to stand out for our work, and sometimes our look. It can bring us closer to those we want to know. When going for the look, get comfortable in your own skin.

People assume that what is beautiful is good. Physically attractive people generate favorable first impressions. If you don’t consider yourself one of the “beautiful people” don’t dismay. Research shows that nonverbal communication such as posture, eye contact, and tone of voice influence first impressions as well. Beautiful skin gives you an advantage.

Many people equate first impressions to one’s attire – the suit, shirt, leg wear, coat, or shoes worn. Others may focus on hair, eyes, voice and skin. It is here that everyone can succeed. When these are well attended to, the result is not only a “look” of confidence but a feeling of confidence. Your posture and sense of authority direct the look. The look doesn’t direct you.

The Daily Mail reported that 42-year-old actress Jennifer Garner was seen at dinner with her family in Santa Monica wearing no makeup. Casually dressed, with her hair pulled back in a ponytail, she sports a warm smile in the photograph. Garner wears her flawless complexion well and attributes it to avoiding the sun and her basic skincare routine.

How a woman feels in her own skin influences her style, approach, communication, decision-making, and energy level. All of these influence first impressions. The natural look is associated with authenticity. Natural skincare products are a perfect complement to the natural look. When women struggle with their skin and skincare products, the battle spills over to other areas.

The flawless skin of a 20-year old model may be a faulty goal for most of us. Get comfortable in your own skin. Moisturize, nurture, and pay attention to what your skin needs. Apply a body cream after a shower to keep your skin smooth in key areas including neck, elbows, knees and feet. Use morning and night face creams daily to hydrate, firm and reinvigorate the skin. Making good first impressions is where your skincare regime gets noticed.

Make your first impressions last. The more frequently you see someone, the more likely they are to develop positive feelings towards you. When you believe you are beautiful, you will be.

What Men Need In Skin Care

Men’s skincare needs differ from those of women. Their layers of skin tend to be thicker and they have smaller pores. Men’s oil glands produce more lubrication (oil) for their skin and it lasts longer than women’s. This gives men an extra anti-aging defense. But even with this extra lubrication they still need a proper skin care regime with quality products that are suitable for their skin types just like women do. Some experts believe if the skin care products contain high quality ingredients they are suitable for either gender. I agree.

Men have different skin care challenges than women, primarily because they have traditionally taken less care of their skin. Men’s skin tends to be exposed more often to damaging environmental elements. Studies show than men tend to have a higher incidence of all forms of skin cancer (this applies specifically to Caucasian men in the USA). Another challenge to men’s skin is the daily SHAVE.

Daily shaving destroys the hydrolipidic film leading to the loss of their natural lubrication and protection. Daily shaving, especially a close shave can cause scraping and niches to the skin leaving it more sensitive and irritated. This can cause dry and dull skin for men starting at an early age.
The first line of defense is moisturizing. Men NEED to moisturize regularly to keep their skin hydrated and healthy. Men not only need to moisturize their face but need to moisturize their body as well using appropriate products for each.

Men should look for a natural/organic face moisturizer that promotes hydration, skin cell regeneration, and is healing. It should be rich in essential fatty acids, oils, vitamins (especially A, C & E) botanical (green tea) and/or fruit extracts and anti oxidants. We recommend YASOU vegan cellular day cream and /or YASOU vegan cell renewal night cream for the face and YASOU hydrating body cream or the body.

My husband, Ray, uses YASOU cell renewal night cream for his face. He has seen his face become hydrated, toned with a huge reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. He also uses YASOU body cream for key areas on his body that become extremely dry like his elbows, knees and legs. He is always telling me that he needs the body cream with him especially when he travels.

A customer and friend named Mike, who is a real estate agent in Chicago, used YASOU cell renewal night cream and called to let me know that it helped the puffiness under his eyes, even though he didn’t use it on his eyes but just his face.

In another example an IT professional and customer told me that he uses YASOU body cream for his extremely dry feet. He was not concerned about pricing due to the excellent results he achieved, unparalleled by other products he tried.
