Ok! All girls are worried (and some guys too) when they get pimples, acne or blackheads on their pretty face. Why are we all so ‘face-conscious’? Why is it so important?
It is said that the face is the first thing someone will look at when they see/meet you. I believe that. Everybody, whether consciously or sub-consciously, wants to ‘connect’ to the other person. In that respect, our eyes and lips are the two most important parts of our face that contribute to our whole facial expression, designed in a way to acknowledge someone (e.g when you smile) , to shut them out (hard set eyes) or show complete indifference (total blank expression) .
Also, we can get a ‘feel’ of a person by looking at them. What I mean is that, more often than not, someone’s face reflects their mood. For example, if we have a certain touchy subject to discuss over with someone, we will try to read their face to decide whether it is the right time to bring the subject up. Right? 🙂
In addition to that, some people make a living because, hmm, they have got the ‘right’ face! 😛 Actors, actresses, models and also people in the customer service sector must have the ‘right’ face to do the job properly. And yeah, loads of money they make!
Moreover, very often we set someone’s level of beauty by judging their face’s structure. I am not trying to be shallow here. Where the physical aspect of beauty is concerned, that is what we do. Haven’t you notice that when you want to express how pretty or handsome you find someone, you describe how their eyes are set, how big their nose is, how full their lips are or how rosy their cheeks are? 😛
Our face plays a crucial role during job interviews too! One of the things employers look for is trustworthiness in an employee. I remember when I went for the interview of my current job. She had a way of boring her eyes into mine. Probably to see if I would flinch or not. After each of her questions, she would just ‘look’ at me in that particular way. Ew. Scary. And she did the same to the other interviewees.
From what said above, I believe that taking care of our face is very important. I find no reason to think lowly of somebody who is using special treatment cream or special products to ‘look’ better. Make-up when applied *correctly* can enhance the face’s features. Everyone has got a feature that stands out. 😉 Ofcourse, there are those who are prone to narcism. But that is a matter all of its own.
Bottom line, your face is important. Know how to take care of it.
