The Pros and Cons of Cosmetic Surgery

There was a time when cosmetic surgeries were associated with the rich and famous celebrities. But not anymore. The girl next door could have surgery if she wanted.

Cosmetic surgeries have recorded great progress in helping many women regain their lives, but of course there have been some down sides as well.

If you have been thinking of undergoing cosmetic surgery but you’re not sure about how it will affect your life, then here are some pros and cons that should help you make a decision.

 

Pros of Cosmetic Surgery
  1. Improves your looks

The major reason why a lot of people go for cosmetic surgery is to “improve their looks”. Cosmetic surgery has recorded a lot of success in helping people look and feel better.

Those who felt that their physical appearance needed something more than just a diet or beauty regimen to correct their flaws have been living happier and more fulfilling life after going through cosmetic surgery.

Correcting defects like a crooked nose or an ugly mole made a big difference in such people’s lives. Major issues like reducing or increasing your breast size, reducing weight with tummy tuck or liposuction has made people feel happier with their appearances.

 

  1. Makes you feel confident

Obviously once you are happy with your appearance, you feel more confident. Cosmetic surgery can help you get your confidence back by helping you correct what you want correcting.

 

  1. It will help you improve your health

Cosmetic surgery has helped people improve their health. There have been reports of ladies whose severe back pain was rectified with a breast reduction surgery. Another instance is when a sinus infection is corrected with a simple nose job. Such corrections can go a long way to improve people’s overall health and well-being.

Cons of Cosmetic Surgery
  1. Severe disappointments

After hearing a lot of great things about cosmetic surgeries, a lot of people go for it with extremely high expectations of the “perfect” shape, look, or feel. Sadly, it doesn’t always turn out that way. Cosmetic surgeons could get it so wrong sometimes, just watch Botched.

 

  1. Long recovery time

Cosmetic surgeries are made of extremely complicated procedures. And since it is surgery after all, it will take a lot of time for the scars, wounds and bruises to heal completely.

Deep incisions and cuts may take a long time to heal and sometimes they can be located in the most conspicuous of all places, for example on your nose if you go for a nose job.

 

  1. High cost of operation

It’s not surprising why a good number of those who go for cosmetic surgery are celebrities. Cosmetic surgeries do not come cheap. A breast enlargement surgery could go for as much as £7,000.

 

I think the decision to go for cosmetic surgery is a personal choice. So it is not something you can be told to have or not have. However, I don’t see myself going down that route for now. At the moment, I am very happy and comfortable in my skin, so no for now. That may change in a few years, but at the moment, I don’t see myself going under the knife for any reason.

How to Get Rid of Stubborn Blackheads/Whiteheads

Blackheads/Whiteheads; how do we get rid of them? Many of us have them. Some on our faces, others on our chests and even our backs are usually not spared.

Both blackheads and whiteheads are caused as a result of clogged pores. The oil and dirt fill up the pores and if you don’t take care of your face properly, a blackhead or whitehead could lead to pimples, which are far worse.

 

The good news is that there’s a solution to blackheads and whiteheads. The only things you need to do are:

 

  1. Be patient
  2. Be consistent

 

Here are 3 things you can do to get rid of stubborn blackheads or whiteheads effectively. Remember this: patience and consistency are key to getting rid of these beauty issues!

 

Pick the right cleansers and toners

One of the major things you should do when it comes to blackheads and whiteheads is to choose a cleanser and toner that will get rid of whatever is blocking those pores.

 

Cleansers or toners that deep cleanse your pores are the best. These cleansers combat clogged pores by dissolving the fat and oil blocking the pores. This will help make your pores free from impurities and drastically reduce the number of blackheads and whiteheads on your face or body.

Cleanse your face daily.

 

Apply a clay mask

There’s a reason why clay masks are part of a beauty routine. Clay masks contain certain elements that help in absorbing impurities from your skin. This is what makes clay masks quite efficient at removing blackheads and whiteheads.

They draw out the fats and oil, dried skin and dirt that block the pores on your face. This will leave your face smooth and glowing.

Just a few minutes of putting on a clay mask and your skin will thank you for it!

Aim to use a face mask once a week.

 

Exfoliate

This may sound a little surprising to some but regularly exfoliating your skin would help clear your skin of blackheads and whiteheads. The particles in your scrub gently remove all the debris from the surface of your skin and in your pores. This leaves your skin feeling smooth and it helps lighten dark spots as an added bonus.

Natural exfoliants like baking soda, sea salt and Epsom salt are very effective not only as scrubs but as a means of getting rid of blackheads and whiteheads. They also help to reduce inflammation.

Aim to exfoliate once or twice a week.
