3 Ways to Look Cute on Zoom Dates

Since the pandemic began, the way we go on dates and connect with friends or relatives has changed significantly. The idea of virtual dating might not be appealing for some people, but it’s a great way of combatting loneliness and establishing authentic human connections that are so vital for our mental health during uncertain times. Due to the fact that we’re spending more time looking at our own faces online, many people have been increasingly self-conscious about what they deem to be flaws or imperfections, such as a bump on the bridge of their nose, wrinkles around the eyes, or a slight double chin. If this sounds like you, now’s an ideal time to take advantage of the extra opportunities we have to heal in the privacy of our homes and finally have a more significant surgical procedure, such as eyelid surgery or a rhinoplasty. Many Los Angeles-area patients—including in Palm Desert, Riverside, and beyond—may have been putting such decisions off because they weren’t able to take time off from coming into the office for work to recover from their procedure. That’s no longer the same potential hindrance for many people.

With that in mind, there are some things you can do to feel more confident on your next FaceTime, Skype, or Zoom date—beyond altering your appearance with cosmetic surgery, if you still aren’t quite ready.

Lighting is Important 

Before your date, take some time to experiment with lighting because it will make a huge difference to your appearance on camera. Set yourself up in an area of your house that has good lighting. You should ideally be facing your light source. A circle light, bright natural light from a window, or even a setting up a desk lamp will be very flattering. Natural light will always look the best. 

Get Your Angles Right 

The last thing you want is to have your camera too close up to your face or at some other unflattering angle. Sit back and give yourself and your date some room. Studies have shown that sitting too close to your camera can make your nose look up to 30 percent bigger!

Make Your Skin Look Great 

Cameras are unforgiving to skin issues, so be sure to moisturize, hydrate, and get plenty of sleep. Hide irregularities with concealer and use body oil or luminizer to give your skin a glowing look. You can also consider laser skin resurfacing to get a more even tone and glowing complexion.

I'm into 1 year after having my saline breast augmentation and I can't be happier. The results are exactly what I wanted; they look and feel super natural. The staffs are helpful in making you feel comfortable and answering any questions you may have. The doctor is very pleasant and informative. I would highly recommend him to any one of my friends and/or family!

The lady at the front was wonderful. They were able to break down all the post op instructions for my recovery time and did a really good job. So far everything looks really good and scarring was minimal to none.

I went to Dr. Mo over a year ago for a breast augmentation. I was absolutely blown away by him and his team. Their caring bedside manner made me feel so comfortable and so welcome. I am beyond happy with my choice and highly recommend Cosmetic Surgery Institute of Palm Desert to anyone looking to enhance themselves.

We restore, repair, and make whole those parts which fortune has taken away, not so much that they delight the eyes but they buoy up the spirit and help the mind of the beset.
