At Skin Deep we help everyone find their best look. Be it high fashion or breathtakingly natural, we strive to match your external image with both your personality and your life’s goals.
We know each individual is unique and therefore what’s perfect for Amy may not be suitable for Alma. However, there’s one surefire technique that enhances every appearance.
Nope, not lipstick. Nope, not even glitter gloss. It’s a good mood. Whether it’s a skip in your step or a mischievous wink – we’re all naturally drawn to happy people.
And there’s a significant reason we find people in a good mood attractive. According to a new study at the University of Warwick: “Moods may spread from person to person via a process known as social contagion.” And this contagion can work in both constructive and destructive ways.
A friend, family member or even a co-worker who comes in with a cloud over their head can pass along a bad mood to you. And have you noticed how quickly that dark mood spreads throughout the office?
Fortunately, this study found the opposite is also true. One person can make an entire workplace happier. Maybe that’s where the term ‘infectious smile’ originated because it turns out a smile can pass from one to another and create a friendly chain of smiling faces.
Sometimes life throws so many hurdles and trials down upon us we can’t imagine accessing that most important of all beauty aids: a happy countenance. But if we find someone who’s already sunny – chances are we’ll absorb that lighter mood from them.
So as fall unfurls cooler weather why not avoid catching another cold and opt for catching a grin? This season spread a little cheer – after all, it’s contagious.
