It’s amazing how much difference a particular mood can make on how you look. If you feel angry or disappointed, your face will seem darker and more negative. Conversely, if you feel happy and joyful, your face will become lighter and more positive. There may be some truth in the belief that happiness is the secret to glowing skin.
When you are happy, you are naturally less stressful. Your worries have been taken care of and any problems that may have arisen have been dealt. There seems to be a solution to just about any issue.
With less stress comes less wrinkles and worry lines. Reducing stress can also result in more time for physical fitness. When you exercise you cleanse your body of toxins that can lead to skin issues. Blemishes and even acne can all result from stress. If you take stress away, then those skin issues will also go away. All this leads to better, healthier, glowing skin.
More exercise also increases endorphins, which also leads to happiness. It’s actually a great cycle. The happier you are, the less stressed you are. The less stressed you are, the more you exercise. The more you exercise, the happier you are. In amongst this cycle is the added benefit of glowing skin.
Being happy means that you can take a breath and see the world through a different light. You can suddenly see the good in everyone. Instead of being frustrated that the server at the restaurant is taking too long, you can appreciate that it’s a busy night. Your positivity can translate into empathy. That server is trying hard, is stressed, and would appreciate a kind word from you. A quick thank you and a glowing smile is all that it can take to turn someone’s day around. Happiness begets happiness, so use your glowing skin to pay it forward.
Being positive usually increase confidence. When you believe in yourself, you can achieve so much more. And when you have that feeling, it’s shown in how you walk, how you carry yourself, and how glowing your skin is.
Being happy means that there are less worries when you lay down for sleep. And, as a result, with less worries comes more sleep. We all know how important sleep is; it’s just sometimes hard to achieve all that we need to get. Happiness allows us to relax, dream a little bit, and wake up refreshed. All this sleep is not only good for our soul, but it is also good for our skin.
Happiness plus sleep almost always equals glowing skin. You skin has time to heal itself of the day’s woes. Puffiness is reduced. Water retention goes down. Baggy eyes disappear. All these benefits of more sleep show themselves in glowing skin.
