Inner Beauty Make-Up: SMILING

Smiling is a grand way to make yourself stand out from the crowd. Though some people are born with great hair, bodies, hair, etc, everyone is born with a great smile. Take advantage of it and use it! We are all lucky to have the inner beauty make-up incorporated in our faces already. It is proven that smiles are one of the first things people notice when they look at you. If you spot someone smiling, you are drawn to him/her because you want to know what is so good that is making him/her smile. Well, try smiling as much as you can because this attention factor makes you show your beauty from your inside and out.

According to Mark Stibich, who received his PhD in health behavior from The Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health, there are so many reasons as to why people should smile. The top ten reasons why you should do it are the following:


  • Makes us attractive
  • Changes our mood
  • Is contagious
  • Relieves stress
  • Boosts your immune system
  • Lowers your blood pressure
  • Releases endorphins, natural pain killers and serotonin
  • Lifts the face and makes you look younger
  • Makes you seem successful
  • Helps you stay positive

Do you notice any negative outcomes of smiling? NO. NO. NO. It is great for you, your health, and even the people who surround you. It brings so many good things to your life and if you already have a mouth in your face, use it and smile! I like referring to a smile as an inner beauty make-up because it makes you look so much better not just from the outside, but from your inside! Always remember that smiling brings so many benefits and positive things to you, so do it as often as possible!


Make Your Beauty SPARKLE

I have a friend, a really beautiful friend, to whom many people are attracted to. I used to wonder what was it that she had that made her call that much attention. It was not just that she was physically really attractive, I learned later that it was also her smile and confidence. I will never forget her telling me that she made her beauty “sparkle”. It sounds weird right? Well, it actually makes a lot of sense. What she meant was embrace your beauty with little actions that in the long run make people see you better. It will also make you see you better.

Here are some tips as to how to make YOUR beauty sparkle, because as I explained, it actually works…

-Do good and feel good. Inner beauty shines because of stuff like this. Being loyal, kind, compassionate and giving makes you beautiful.

-You have flaws? Embrace them. My friend had a scar right on top of one her brows and that made her unique and because of that, she loved it! Instead of questioning why we have imperfections, look at them and admire them. They make you different.

-Smile. Smiling is very important, everyone finds people who smile more attractive and nice. The more you smile, the happier you will become and the more beautiful you will feel. KEEP A SMILE ON YOUR FACE!
