Do you remember that Oscar selfie orchestrated by Ellen DeGeneres that broke the Internet? Everyone gathered into the frame and grinned and that one-off shot went viral. Granted, most of us aren’t celebrities, but we’re all familiar with that group-selfie moment where you’ve got just one shot to get it right and you hope you look halfway decent in the final outcome!
Then, of course, there are the dozens of selfies we take that feature us alone, going about our day or enjoying a favorite activity. Let’s be honest here: Who doesn’t like a selfie? After all, selfies let us…
- be self-reliant – you’re in charge of your own photo session and you don’t need to keep bothering anyone to take yet another pic for you
- be ourselves – they’re a great form of self-expression
- document our lives – special moments (like Ellen’s Oscar selfie) are captured on the spot for us to enjoy
All too often though, selfies are ruined by the appearance of your least-favorite skin troubles, such as circles under your eyes, a wrinkly forehead, or the crow’s feet that form every time you smile for a photo.
Next time you lean in for a selfie, do so feeling confident that you are looking your best!
Be spontaneous and know that even when you’ve got just one shot to capture a special moment, you’ll be looking great. No more taking 20 or 30 snaps before you find one you actually like of yourself!
Make this year’s selfies the hottest yet by trying one of our safe and effective outpatient medical spa treatments. You’ll be looking and feeling more youthful and refreshed without the need for surgery.
We can’t all be celebrities, but we can all be the best versions of ourselves in this movie we call, “My Life!”
