Celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Scarlett Johansson get almost as much attention for their lips as they do for modeling gigs, TV and film appearances. Full youthful lips are one of the #1 requests at my clinic, especially from women in their 30s, 40s and beyond: "More, please!" With Valentine's Day upon us, thoughts turn to love and kisses, and kisses make us think of lips. Not everyone wins the genetic lottery and gets blessed with Kylie or Scarlett lips.
'Tis the season for resolutions, intentions and goals for the coming year. Many of us have an ambivalent relationship with goal-setting, maybe because we so often disappoint ourselves. Common sense suggests that when you've got a big goal, like committing to a new workout routine, eating better, losing weight, or perhaps writing a book or starting a business, you should tell as many people as possible. After all, if lots of friends know about your goal, you'll be motivated to work harder because you don't want to disappoint yourself or your community.
