Facial Cleanse

This Japanese Cleansing Trend is Growing in Popularity Very Quickly

Facial Cleanse

It seems as if everyone develops his or her own unique cleansing ritual over time. You may have your own products and tools for cleansing your face, and you may swear by them, too. However, there’s a Japanese trend that’s gaining ground very quickly, and you might want to try it for yourself. Here’s what you need to know about hot facial cleansing and its benefits.

What Is Hot Facial Cleansing?

The act of hot facial cleansing involves using a gel-based facial product that heats up when you massage it. Simply put some of the product on your fingertips, massage it into the skin on your face and neck (sans water), and let it sit for 30 seconds before rinsing with warm water. It may seem crazy to some, but it’s actually proving to be quite beneficial. Those who have tried hot facial cleansing report fresher, more radiant skin that continues to improve over time.

How a Nose Job Can Boost Self Confidence

rhinoplasty self esteem

Rhinoplasty is the medical term used to describe the “nose job”, which is becoming far more common among men and women alike with every passing year. It’s no wonder nearly half a million people seek rhinoplasty each year; a nose job can improve self-confidence tremendously for a few very interesting reasons.

Reverses the Trauma of Bullying

While plastic surgery should never be used in place of therapy to help recover from a traumatic event, such as bullying, there’s evidence to suggest that individuals who are (or were) the targets of bullies due to the shape or size of their noses can enjoy boosted self-confidence following rhinoplasty. After all, these patients’ noses were the sources of their grief; they were the focus of the bullies. When these individuals can have their noses reshaped, and when they like what they see in the mirror, the past trauma associated with being bullied is no longer as bothersome.

Facial Feminization Surgery – Male to Female

transgender transition

Facial feminization surgery, sometimes referred to as simply FFS, is one of the most coveted surgeries among transgender individuals seeking to transition. This surgery is designed to soften the more masculine facial features and deliver a more feminine, rounded, contoured face.

What’s Involved in Facial Feminization?

While this is the number one most common questions asked by those interested in facial feminization surgery, it’s also one of the most difficult to answer. Every single surgery is custom-tailored to the patient’s individual needs. First, the surgeon discusses the patient’s vision for her face. Then, the surgeon will recommend a list of procedures designed to help the patient achieve those results.

What It’s Like to Make the Transition

ffs transition

The word “transition” means different things to different people. Sometimes, a transition is mostly a social event, and in other cases, it requires a great deal of surgery. If you’ve been considering transitioning, you’re probably curious to learn how other people felt throughout the process. Here, you can learn about three transgender women’s journeys.

Making the Decision

Some women claim that they went most of their adult lives without ever realizing their issues with their genders. For example, in some cases, women don’t make the transition until their 40s – when their kids have all but grown and gone on to college. It’s important to note that all three women say transitioning wasn’t a choice or something they weighed intellectually – it reflected who they were, and something they felt they must do to truly be themselves.

Facial Fillers Botox

Want Quick Results? Try Botox or Fillers

Facial Fillers Botox

Plastic surgery is a fantastic option for anyone who wants to reshape or recontour their face, or even for those who want to look and feel younger. However, many procedures have some downtime, and they require at least a few days off work. If you’re looking for fast, quick, and safe results, Botox and fillers alike are very viable alternatives.

Botox – What to Expect

For people who are considering the idea of a more youthful appearance but who aren’t quite ready to commit to surgery – or for those who have lines and wrinkles in just one or two areas – Botox is a great alternative. It’s incredibly quick and simple, and the entire procedure can be performed in as little as 15 minutes in your surgeon’s office. There’s absolutely no recovery necessary, and in many cases, you can go right back to your normal activity as soon as you leave. You may experience a little redness and swelling, but these are easily mitigated and well worth the overall improvement you’ll see.

Different Types of Wrinkles & How to Fix Them

Facial Wrinkles

Not all wrinkles are the same, and this means that not all wrinkle treatments are the same. Here, you can learn more about each of the five types of wrinkles, how they form, and the best ways to reduce their appearances through lifestyle changes and cosmetic treatments.

Elastic Wrinkles

Elastic wrinkles are those that form due to spending too much time in the sun or in a tanning bed. They look like creases, and they’re more common on your neck, lips, and cheeks. If you want to avoid them, cover up before going in the sun and make sure you’re using plenty of sunscreen. Although tanning beds can help you achieve a gorgeous golden color, they’ll also cause wrinkles. Swap your tanning sessions for high-quality spray tans instead. If you already have elastic wrinkles, certain types of chemical peels and laser treatments can reduce their appearance.
