Question: Lips

angelof2005 - Thu Jan 06, 2005 11:33 pm

Hi. I do not want surgery or anything I am 15 years old. I want advice. For years I have had an extra bit of skin on my top lip at the bottom. Some people have noticed it, if you look a lot at my face you will of course see it. I have had it about 4 years now. Is there any advice you could give me to get rid of it and have 'normal' looking lips. It makes me very self aware.

Hi angelof2005,
If you don't want any sort of surgical intervention one may use make up etc. to disguise any physical imperfections. The important thing to keep in mind is that true beauty comes from within. We all have some sort of physical imperfections.
