So you took the photo, you’re really expecting some cute photo, but then, as with everyone else in this world, you’re not satisfied with how you look in it. It can be some very small things, nothing too important; something like wrinkle in an uncomfortable place, maybe the slight double chin that’s barely noticeable but you don’t like it being there.
We’ve all got those little pet peeves with photos; those little things that bother us in their own little ways. But how do you get over those things? How do you get confident in how you look in photos?
Sure, this may not apply to everyone, but considering how photos have become such a big part of our lives, it’s safe to say that there many people out there that need a little boost in their photo confidence. But how can a visit to the medical spa help you out?
Well, that’s exactly what we’re going to look into here; some of the quickest and easiest ways to get that quick fix up before a photoshoot, a CV or cover letter picture or for something as casual as a new profile photo for social media.
The Everyday Hustle
There are stuff that I don’t need to be telling you to do as you probably do them yourself and these just so happen to be part of your everyday routine. The easiest way to prepare for any photo is to simply make sure that you’ve taken care of your skin properly.
Looking nice is important, but keeping the skin healthy is the foundation of having it look nice. No matter how much treatment you go through, if you don’t take care of the basics, skin’s just not going to magically look good. You have to put a little effort into keeping skin healthy in order for it to also look the part.
Keeping skin healthy doesn’t mean getting complicated treatments, buying weird creams and making sure that absolutely nothing out of the ordinary comes into contact with it. Keeping skin healthy is all about the simple tasks; things that again, you probably already do, like keeping it clean, regularly washing it, making sure to cover it up in the cold and not stand under the scorching Sun for too long.
It’s the simple things we handle on a day to day basis. If you can take care of your skin, it will always look naturally fresh and vibrant. But this is quite a generalized tip, and yes, it doesn’t get down to the specifics and nitty gritty aspects of getting photogenic skin.
The Finer Details
Keeping the skin generally healthy is only the first and most fundamental step to always looking great in photos. But what if you’re problems lie in the finer details of skin care and beauty.
Well, unfortunately there’s no one single procedure that can treat every and all skin and facial conditions. But there are several ones which offer many different advantages and take care of all the little nitpicks you worry about.
For example, take Kybella. The Kybella injection is absolutely vicious in tearing through fat cells and folds in the most uncomfortable parts of the body. Got a double chin that won’t go away no matter how much you diet and exercise? Well no problem; you won’t see a single extra chin in your photos after getting some Kybella treatment for yourself.
Or how about the smoothness of the face? It’s natural to get wrinkles at some point in time. But not everyone is equally comfortable with having wrinkles on their face. Which is why there are tons and tons of different treatments which exist to smooth out wrinkles.
The best part about it; all of these skin treatments come in all shapes and sizes and have their own advantages and disadvantages.
Do you want something simple, quick and easy? Try microneedling, which is one of the quickest treatments in the industry, with a very short recovery time, so you can get back to taking photos within a couple days. It’s one of those treatments that you can go into real quick and see some great results in a short amount of time.
And best of all; it utilizes your body’s natural abilities to heal and repair damaged skin. This means not only is skin going to repair itself naturally, but you won’t have to worry about being allergic to a compound or chemical. It’s all natural.
If you’re looking for something that’ll last longer and are willing to put more time into it, there’s always Botox or dermal fillers. Both treatments are great at smoothing out skin, making it look vibrant and almost glossy smooth in photos. Many celebrities book themselves Botox treatment before some big shows in order to look their absolute best. It’s not just the special effects and post production. There’s a reason why celebrities look like they were created just to be on camera. They simply know the type of treatments to get.
The Mentality of It All
But, at some point, if we skip the treatments, the Botox, the daily skin care; a photogenic face is simply the comfort people feel when they’re being filmed or photographed. Now, confidence is not something you can simply pick out from reading some random article; don’t expect to be confident 100% of the time in front of the camera after reading this.
The comfort has to come from inside you, this love for yourself, who you are and how you look. Stuff like microneedling and Botox is there to give you the smaller edge over nature. But ultimately, it all comes down to how you see and feel about yourself. Once you’ve learned to appreciate who you are, the rest will just fall in its place.
