A New View of Your Skin
Do you ever stand an inch from the magnifying makeup mirror and despair that needles and lasers are the only answer? Step away from the glass—you may be experiencing proportion distortion, says Loretta Ciraldo, a dermatologist in Miami. “No one else scrutinizes your skin that closely,” she says. “I’ve saved many women from the scalpel by suggesting that they ask a friend to take a picture of them from a foot or two away. Then they can assess what they may really need.” Which might be just moisturizer and a good night’s sleep.
