I’m going to be completely honest with you with this blog post. I hate family reunions. Now don’t get me wrong. It’s not like I dislike seeing cousins, uncles or distant relatives. I love seeing those people because being the typical American family, we’re located all over the world. Some people are in South East Asia, other people are in Northern parts of Asia like Japan and Korea, others are in Eastern or Western Europe.
It’s really amazing. It’s kind of like an anthropological journey because you can see that one family has sent many different members to all parts of the world and as the family gets bigger and bigger with the addition of new cousins, second cousins, cousins third removed, they cover more of the map. And believe me. My family is not an exception.
A lot of American families are like this. In fact, my buddy who is originally from the Philippines has family members on all continents. Yes. Even Africa. He has a lot of family members in the middle east working primarily in Kuwait, Dubai and Saudi Arabia. He has cousins in Northern Africa, mainly Egypt, Tunisia and Libya. He also has family members from Eastern Europe working in Russia and the Czech republic. Western Europe actually has a lot of his family members because a lot of cousins and uncles and aunts live in Spain and London. And don’t even get me started about the US. The official total population of Filipinos in the US is a far cry from the real numbers.
I shared this with you because family reunions can be a lot of fun. You can see people speaking many different languages. You can see people from all sorts of educational background. You can see individuals with high net worth and people who are barely keeping body and soul together. This is all well and good, but the problem is cosmetic.
If you’re not in shape, if you look like you’re very haggard and old, those family reunion pictures can be murder on your self esteem. I found this out in the worst way possible when it turned out that some of my cousins are male models from Brazil. What do you think that family photo looked like? You don’t want to be the ugly duckling.
Do yourself a big favor. Instead of thinking hard about skipping your next family reunion, come prepared instead. By undergoing contour light treatment, your skin will look its very best. Now this doesn’t absolve you of the responsibility of getting on a treadmill and losing that spare tire around your mid section. However, great skin counts for a lot.
Just like with straight, well set teeth, your skin can really change people’s impression of you. So do yourself a big favor. Sign up for contour light treatment and you’d be surprised as to the power great skin has in making an awesome first impression.
