how great skin care can improve your luck

St. Patty’s Day has come and gone but do you recall feeling any luckier that day? The truth is, the “luck” we celebrate that day is short lived and at best. So the best we can do is create our own good fortune. Did you know that your skin can do just that? It’s true, practicing good skin care can indeed change your luck.


Think about first Impressions – your face is literally your business card. When you walk into a meeting or an interview, like it or not, you are initially being judged on your appearance. Your skin plays a big role here. If you arrive with dull, tired, broken out skin, the impression you may give is that you are just that – dull and tired and maybe even lazy. You can have the best credentials in the world but you may miss an opportunity for a job, a new business relationship, a personal relationships or a sale because your skin and overall appearance are not at their best. Here are 3 ways you can positively influence your chances to make a great first impression that don’t require luck:


1) Sleep – It seems obvious but it requires mentioning. No matter how busy or how distracted you feel,  you need to sleep. Sleep is incredibly important to your overall health. It’s your body’s time to repair itself. Your skin also goes into repair mode when you sleep. At night, skin cells repair the damage caused by free radicals during the day thus the fresh look you have when you get a good night’s rest. There are countless other reasons why you need sleep – the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute can give you more.


2) Eat – Eat right and your skin will reflect this. Foods rich in anti-oxidants and omega 3’s will help you achieve radiant skin. It’s really as easy as that. Eat to live, not the other way around. Consider supplements that can help you achieve your skin care, health and weight loss goals. has some really great options.


3) says it best: “Water is the worlds best beauty elixir.” If you want your skin to look it’s best, water is your best friend. It’s also a great way to detox your organs by flushing away toxins. So drink up!
