This Little-Known Foundation Is Insanely Good at Covering Redness
It was the first time I had ever gotten filler. I started an anti-inflammatory diet a year prior as part of my relentless search for more energy. The diet helped, but along with more energy came unintentional weight loss, and it mostly showed on my face. I have a resting heart rate of around 100 bpm, and a naturally over-active metabolism, so weight-gain and maintenance has always been a struggle for me. I don’t feel confident when I look too thin, especially in my face and cheek hollows.
I had a date to a big basketball game on the same night, but I was told that the fillers would be no obstacle to that. The appointment was unfortunately well-before the days that I knew about cannulas and various anti-bruising and bleeding techniques; the doctor injecting me chose to micro-dose the filler, pricking dozens of sites all over the area above my mouth. I was thrilled with the results, but horrified by how red my face was.
