What’s a quick, easy, and free way to improve your appearance?


You can spend thousands of dollars on skincare items and makeup but if you can’t also master the simple technique of smiling, then you’re missing the bigger picture.  Don’t get me wrong. I love makeup and skincare more than the average person-it’s why I choose to study it!  But at the same time, what good does it do you to have all those products if you have a grumpy demeanor and outlook?

Case and point: Have you ever seen someone who was good-looking but had a scowl that would intimidate Disney villains?  Their vibe yells out unapproachable and can repel others from wanting to converse or be next to them.

Smiling can change our mood and alter a negative viewpoint into a positive one.  It can also help alleviate stress, boost your immune system, lower blood pressure, make you look younger, seem more attractive,  and best of all, it’s contagious.  A smile will draw and bring happiness to you and those around you.

So, smile and laugh because it’s your birthday.  Because you’re alive.  Because you’ve overcome obstacles.  Because you helped someone out.  Because it’s a new day to start over. Because you found time to relax.  Because you have a purpose.  Because you’re unique.

What is your reason to smile?
