Be More Beautiful Without Going Under the Knife!

Be More Beautiful Without Going Under the Knife!

There’s nothing wrong with enhancing your natural beauty with a little help from science. If a visit to the doctor can give you that boost of self-confidence, why not?

However, not everyone’s a big fan of “going under the knife.” Some people are OK with the idea but don’t have the time for it. Your regular beauty routine takes much of your time already. According to a recent study, .U.S. women spend an hour a day doing their makeup and hair. This number doesn’t account for other activities, like exfoliating, waxing, plucking and more.

If you’re not a big fan of traditional invasive surgery, congratulations! You have many non-invasive options available. From laser lipo to dermal fillers, here are the go-to, non-invasive treatments you can consider.

Laser Lipo

Laser liposuction (laser lipo) is a non-invasive procedure that removes excess fat cells from your body. It uses heat from laser light energy to heat and liquefy fat cells. Once the fat cells in the treatment area become hot enough, they disintegrate. The laser continues to heat the tissue holding your fat cells together until their break apart and liquefy. Once liquefied, the fat cells go through your lymphatic system. Eventually, your gut will process the liquefied fat and remove it from your body via urine.

The duration of laser lipo treatments depends on the size of the area being treated, how much fat is in the treatment area and the amount of fat you’d like to have removed. On average, however, the treatment takes up to an hour.

One of the biggest benefits of laser lip is the quick results. It only takes four to six weeks to see the final results – a big difference from the post-op six months promise of traditional liposuction.

Non-Surgical Fat Removal

Another way to remove fat cells the non-invasive way is via non-surgical fat removal. This innovative procedure uses different techniques to vibrate and remove fat cells by heating or freezing. Kybella, Venus Freeze, SculpSure and CoolSculpting are some examples of non-invasive fat removal procedures.

These treatments are ideal for those who refuse to “go under the knife” but want to see immediate and effective results.

Microblading

Instead of filling in your eyebrows every day, many women are choosing to enjoy tattooed semi-permanent brows. Microblading is a state-of-the-art non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses fine-needles to create natural-looking hair strokes. This modern technique is known for its natural results. Plus, it saves you time from doing your brows!

Your microbladed brows can last as long as three years and takes only two hours to complete. After the treatment, you’re not supposed to wet the brows for a week, so you’ll need to take a break from strenuous activities. Your doctor may require the application of anti-bacterial ointment to heal the area.

Laser Hair Removal

Many women spend hours every week enduring painful hair removal treatments and not get the smooth results they want. Instead of torturing your skin with plucking, shaving and waxing, enjoy a more permanent hair removal solution with laser hair removal.

This relatively painless procedure blasts the hair follicles with pulses of laser light, which stops hair growth and encourages shedding, leaving your skin smooth and hair-free. After the procedure, the results are visible after a week or two and can last up to years (as long as you have a few touch-ups here and there).

Lip Blushing

If you’re tired of looking “dead” without lipstick, lip blushing gives you a semi-permanent lip stain. This procedure results in a cosmetic tattoo that color corrects your lips while enhancing their size and shape. According to some people, lip blushing can help with the asymmetry of your lips. The result leaves your lips looking more natural but also plumper, fuller and more blushing.

Lip blushing uses tiny needles to deliver small deposits of pigment to your lips – layer by layer. Like other non-invasive, semi-permanent treatments, the duration of results varies from one person to another.

Non-Surgical Nose Job

A traditional rhinoplasty is invasive, painful and time-consuming (due to the long recovery time). On the other hand, a non-surgical nose job is performed using injectable fillers such as Juvederm and hyaluronic acid. While the results are not permanent, this popular nose job alternative is great for people who want to create nostril symmetry or smooth out their bridge bumps.

Non-surgical nose jobs do not reduce the size of your nose, but if you want a smaller nose, this treatment is worth your while.

Going under the knife isn’t always the only option to enhance your natural beauty. Celebrate your self-confidence and get the glow up you deserve with these non-surgical solutions.

Skin Care at Any Age

Skin Care at Any Age


One of the biggest questions I receive is people wondering what is the best age to start taking care of your skin.


Skin is the largest organ we have and taking care of it starts from the day you were born.


The day you were born…



Gentle soaps and lotions are used on babies to hydrate and protect. Think of it this way… Your skin has been nourished since day one.


Terrible teen years…



Being a teen is rough on skin. Hormones are raging and marching across your face. Breakouts from poor diets and poor makeup can wreak havoc on our complexion. Introducing a good gentle cleansing program can be beneficial. Washing with honey and water can help clear up acne since honey had natural antibacterial properties.

Ah, twenties…


The twenties are for learning a lot about life. That includes learning what to eat and taking care of yourself. You become aware of the millions of makeup products that are available and have a top drawer full of them to prove it. Most important thing to remember is to clean your face. Use fragrance-free makeup wipes or cleanser before you go to bed. Sleep helps cells regenerate. And a clean face will allow your cells to do their job properly. Don’t forget to clean your makeup brushes as well. Bacteria grows fast, and you don’t want to slather bacteria all over your skin.


Moving towards your thirties…

By your late twenties/early thirties, you should have a solid skin regimen. Cells are slowing down, which makes it harder for skin to bounce back like it used to. Using natural products like Nakin anti-aging eye treatment and lip balm can help skin stay plump without harmful ingredients. The eye cream is silky, not greasy. The lip balm is minty and cool, not sticky and dry. Natural products can be extremely helpful in maintaining healthy skin.


Over forty-plus and fabulous…



Collagen loss is a major issue after a certain point in life. A healthy diet can help boost collagen reproduction. Bone broth, B vitamins and amino acids can be a secret weapon against prematurely aging. As for skin care products, adding moisture to your skin is a must. Products with hyaluronic acid is a good way to hydrate.



Correction of skin issues are mostly possible. The most important thing to remember is, improvement takes time. Don’t get discouraged if using a product for a few weeks and you don’t see a change. Some products can make skin worse before it becomes better. This is the process of ‘purging’. Side note: purge can take about three months.

So, what is the best age to start taking care of your skin? I say, the best time to start taking care of your skin is when you ask yourself that question. And the first step to protecting your skin from aging poorly is to invest in sunscreen for your face. Your future skin will thank you for it.

Benefits Of Hyaluronic Acid

By Guest Blogger, Hannah D.

Cleansing dry skin is a tricky business. Any wrong product or ingredient can easily zap out the remaining moisture on your skin.

This, in the end, can spell more trouble.

Dry skin isn’t only unattractive, but it can also make you too conscious of yourself. You can end up with rough skin, flaking and even bleeding.

In choosing the right cleanser for dry skin, you need to pay close attention to its formula and ingredients. Make sure that there are no harsh components that can make your skin drier than it already is.

Pick products that have great hydrating properties. One of your best options is hyaluronic acid.

This ingredient is able to hold 1,000 times its weight in water. It can attract and retain moisture on your skin without being occlusive.

 For these properties, hyaluronic acid isn’t just great for dry skin. It also makes a great choice even for those who have oily and acne-prone skin.

 Hyaluronic acid can work wonders on aging skin, too. By keeping the skin plump and hydrated, it can essentially make wrinkles and fine lines a lot less prominent.

 To know more about this ingredient and how it can help you deal with your skin concerns, check out the infographic below.
