5 Ways To Prep Your Skin For A Job Interview
Hunting for a new job can be overwhelming, not to mention the stressful interview process. From what to wear and what to say, the last thing that you want to worry about is your skin! Here are some tips from Sanova Dermatology to help prepare your skin for your big day.
1. Taming Troubled Skin
Acne is not something you want on a good day, but definitely doesn’t help a first impression. Facials or chemical peels are a great way to calm your skin, reduce inflamed acne bumps, and brighten a dull complexion. These treatments can quickly clear up your skin while complimenting your skin care regimen. Facials are a great last-minute refresher, while you should allow a week to get the full benefits from your chemical peel.
2. Don’t be a Flake
White flakes on your black suit is no way to seal the deal. Seborrheic dermatitis is one of the most common causes of dandruff. Using shampoos with selenium or zinc can help to reduce the appearance of flakes and calm an irritated or itchy scalp. For more treatment options, your dermatologist can recommend prescription medications scalp treatments to get your eczema and flakes under control.
3. Make Up Picks
Ladies, this is not the time to show off your cat’s eye. Stick with a simple look, and avoid a caked-on or overdone appearance. Try a high-quality mineral-based makeup that gives great coverage and also calms the skin. The GloMinerals line, for example, has a gorgeous variety of products ranging from basic foundations and blushes to expertly crafted camouflaging palettes and eyeshadows.
4. Don’t Sweat It
Job interview questions can be nerve-racking, leaving you a sweaty mess! Interview day is not a day to skip deodorant, but embarrassing wetness can definitely take a toll on your confidence. miraDry, the first FDA-approved treatment for immediate and permanent sweat and odor reduction in your underarms, can eliminate sweat rings on your clothing keeping you poised and self-assured!
5. Making Contact
Deciding what to wear can be a tough choice. But there’s more to the job prep than just picking your best power tie. Imagine putting on your newly purchased dress shirt or fantastic pair of earrings only to find that your skin is not a fan. If you notice that your skin is beginning to scale, flake, or become irritated with new clothing or jewelry, you may have contact dermatitis. This may be an irritation from laundry detergents, perfumes or fragrances, or a true allergy to specific metals, chemicals or allergens that directly contact the skin.
