Why Chin Contouring May Be The Only Treatment You Need This Year

BY LISA WILLIAMS There’s something about a strong, defined chin that’s captivating. A well-balanced facial proportions is one aspect of a beautiful face and the key to balancing out the face lies in the chin.   A receded chin lends the face a shortened appearance.

Here’s How To Get An Eyelift Without Surgery

The Chinese have a saying – the eyes are the windows to our soul. But as age creeps up on us, the delicate skin which frame our eyes loses its turgor and starts to sag. Before long, dark undereye circles may form and one can look tired even though you are quite well-rested!   How Our Eyes Age Firstly, sagging skin of the eye changes the shape of the eyes a little.
