Prive Clinic Singapore Woman First Impression

Have you ever gone for a job interview looking sloppy? Well most of us would dress up in a suit or ensure our hair looks neat and tidy when the day comes for us to present ourselves in front of our potential boss. After all, an attractive face is always a great impression for any business.

According to a Linked-in article written by Benrard Marr, Best-Selling Author, Keynote Speaker and Consultant in Strategy, Performance Management, Analytics, KPIs and Big Data, he says “Beautiful people, both men and women, tend to earn more than those with average looks. They also get hired sooner, get promoted quicker, sell more, and even get a bank loan more easily than their less attractive counterparts.”

Economics professor Daniel Hamermesh, author of Beauty Pays: Why Attractive People Are More Successful, agrees and has evidence to show very convincingly that beautiful people earn a higher salary than average looking person. He also shows that good looking individuals are employed sooner, get promoted more quickly, and tend to have higher ranking jobs in companies. His work also confirms that attractive employees tend to bring in more money for their companies, and therefore will be seen as more successful.

Did you know that people make judgements about each other within the first minute they meet? Respect, confidence and self-empowerment can all start with your diligence to grooming. Looking alert and groomed when you step in for that interview says a lot about you in that few seconds. Let’s face it, although what’s on the inside does count, what’s on the outside can be just as important. Create a positive lasting first impression with these 3 important tips:

Achieve a Youthful Look Many of us would love to have defined contours or a V-Shape face, however as we age, our skin loses collagen, wrinkles and lines can surface as a result of this loss of volume. A V-Shape face simply means elongating the chin by lifting your lower face. This can be done via a minimally-invasive procedure such as 3D Facelift. Other non-invasive treatments that uses focused ultrasound and unipolar radio frequency are also available for your consideration. This helps to break down fats and tighten the skin round the jawline. You will have a balanced and symmetrical face and in turn making you look younger.

Brighten & Lighten Up Dull Skin Does your skin look dull and opaque? Well, there are many people out there who want to look fair, they want their skin to glow because culturally a fair complexion is thought to be more attractive or noble. There are various ways to stay fair and this can be via cosmetic products or ingredients that contain Vitamin C because it helps to repair sun and free radical damage which in turn brightens and lightens skin.

Machine treatments such as lasers treatments such as Discovery Pico use light and heat energy to lighten pigmentation, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and skin irregularities such as pimples and enlarged pores.

Other options include oral products which contain phytoene and phytofluene that absorb UV and protect the skin from sun exposure whilst reducing existing pigmentation. They also inhibit the formation of additional melanin. They are a super anti-oxidant that protects against free radical damage by environmental aggressors. There are also oral sunscreens that contain polypodium leucotomos and may protect your skin from ultraviolet damage as well as lower the possibility of sunburn.

Eyes Are the Windows To Your Soul It may be important to show your potential recruiter that you are a very hardworking employee, but the last thing you want is for them to be interviewing someone with panda-looking eyes. Transform those tired eyes and soothe delicate undereye areas with treatments that use infrared light and radio frequency to tighten and firm skin around the eye area, lightening dark circles, calm puffiness and minimise fine lines.

Remember, she who is well prepared has half the battle won. And if you are worried whether you have the time or if you are going to look drastically different, well, many of these treatments are lunch-time quick fixes as there’s almost little or no downtime.
