A Piece of Advice from Frederic Fekkai
Too often we hate the frozen reflection we see in a mirror, and so we make rash decisions to correct flaws that don't even exist.
Don't just stare at yourself in the mirror in the morning. It's the least flattering moment of the day. To get an impression of how you look in real life, catch your reflection all through the day. You'll be pleasantly surprised. I have never been surprised at my own reflection, I can't believe he said that. Anyway.....
When scrutinizing your image, run a hand through your hair. See how it feels. Notice what your hand does- it will naturally go to the problem spots:
*Are you fluffing your hair or patting it down here and there? You can probably use a good trim.
*Are you stroking your jawline up and down and rubbing your cheekbones? You feel tired and should try to get a good night's sleep.
*Are you straightening your posture? You need to exercise more often.
*Look into the mirror before leaving your house to figure out what to eliminate- not what to add.
I thought the rest of his advice after this was stupid, so I didn't include it.
