Humans tend to be their own worst enemies. People look into the mirror and see every flaw, every bulge, every line, and every wrinkle magnified. A fine line that no one else notices appears as a crevice to the person in the mirror. Changing a few habits and adjusting a few perspectives are ways of Fixing The Negative Opinions Of Ourselves.

Habits

Many habits contribute to lines, dark circles under the eyes, wrinkles, droopy eyelids, double chins, and dull skin. One is not getting enough sleep. Turn off the television or computer, leave the cell phone in another room and turn that off as well. Go to bed earlier, play some soft music, and get an aromatherapy machine.

Sunscreen needs to be applied in all seasons. Many people think that the sun does not dry out skin or lips in the winter months. The ultraviolet rays of the sun never turn off or diminish. If the sun is shining, sunscreen is necessary.

Smoking, excessive consumption of alcohol, lack of nutrition, and poor circulation are other habits that appear on the face. Vitamins, antioxidants, and collagen need to be present in large amounts to keep the skin healthy. The best way to get those elements to the skin is via blood circulation. No exercise translates into dull skin because new cells are not generating fast enough to provide a healthy glow. Smoking and alcohol constrict blood vessels which also contributes to poor circulation.

Perspective

While every advertisement tells the masses that signs of aging are to be hidden, many people have the attitude that every line and wrinkle is well-earned and tells the story of a life well-lived. That does not work or everyone. If those wrinkles, dark circles, or lines have a negative impact, consider dermal fillers as an alternative to a face-lift. Some brands, such as Juvederm and Voluma, utilize hyaluronic acid as the main ingredient.

This substance is bio-compatible, safe, and requires zero downtime. Juvederm works on the lips and the deep lines around the mouth for up to one-year. Voluma is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use on the checks and lasts for up to two-years. A consultation is required before a plastic surgeon will administer these injections, so plan on scheduling at least two appointments.
