Plastic surgeons everywhere are reporting a rise in facial surgery due to the desire to take better selfies. In our age of social media, Photoshop, and Snapchat filters, natural, unretouched pictures are hard to come by.
The pictures for dating apps in particular are almost always filtered or taken with a heavy degree of facial contouring and artistry.
While there’s nothing wrong with wanting to look your best for pictures it shouldn’t be your primary reason to have plastic surgery. Want to take better selfies? Here are three tips to get you there without filters or photo editing.
- Find a natural light source. Pictures taken outside during the daylight offer the best lighting. Even if you’re inside, having a natural light source near your photo space will help create a more even, natural look. For even better selfies, look toward the light.
- Think of what makes you happy. There’s a real difference between a natural smile and a forced smile. A natural smile lights your face and makes you look and even feel happier and younger. A forced smile can look fake from a mile away.
- Relax. Don’t try so hard! When you are overly made up, bronzed, contoured, and glossed you lose the beauty of a relaxed, natural, confident look.
There’s nothing wrong with wanting plastic surgery to nip, lift, and tuck the areas you dislike about your features. But make sure you are undergoing the procedures for you, not for how you look to everyone else. If you’ve decided plastic surgery or injections are the way to look your best and be confident, contact Kalos for your consultation.
