MY CORRECTIVE DOUBLE JAW SURGERY EXPERIENCE

As you know I had double jaw surgery…which was a real fucking ordeal.

Since I get so many e-mails about this unique surgery, I decided I’d do what I do best & lay it all on the line for you with a little video.

If you remember I was actually SWOLLEN AF for like two years. Ya, two years.

It screws with you- it’s something I haven’t really talked about but I thought it was important to share a peek behind the curtain of what was really happening. I’m finally in a place where I’m ready to open up & share the BTS with you.

Hopefully this helps anyone who’s been through a traumatic surgery. What I went through has definitely made me a more resilient person, HOWEVER it was not fun.

With that, I’ll let the video do the talking?

MORE JAW DRAMA…LIKE IT’S ALWAYS SOMETHING

MICHAEL SAID IF HE HEARS THE WORD JAW ONE MORE TIME WE MAY DIVORCE.

Lol.

But seriously, I am sick of it too. Such a drag.

So basically as you guys know, I had double jaw surgery about 4-ish years ago. Well, recently I realized that my lymphatic system in my face wasn’t draining properly- this was causing me to swell up like a balloon any time I stepped on a plane, traveled to higher altitude, &/or drank too much alcohol. Even salt! Like forget it- one too many grams of salt & I was immediately Fat Bastard.

I was over it. Personally, I became convinced that the reason I was swelling so much was because of the screws & plates in my face. I mean it can’t be GOOD for you to have metal in your face blocking your flow. My acupuncturist told me this too- he said the screws/plates from double jaw surgery were …

Finally Have A Little Energy To Talk About SURGERY

Ohhhhhh man.

Life has been intense these past 2 weeks.

If you read this post you guys know I had surgery.

Well, actually totally transparency: MAJOR surgery.

Firstly, I’ve had 3 surgical procedures in my life: appendectomy ( my mom thought I had the flu…turned out my appendix ruptured & went gangrene in high school. Hurt like a bitch ), a boob job ( circa 2005. If you guys want a full blog post on this I’m happy to do one— lmk below ), & my wisdom teeth pulled ( but who hasn’t? ).

I feel like although the appendix was tough, nothing was as gnarly as my fourth surgery: jaw corrective surgery.

Let me start from the beginning.

Surprisingly I’m a very private person in many ways. When you’re a blogger you sort of get to choose what you want to share & what’s off limits. As my blog years have gone on though, I’ve become a bit more open ( maybe that’s age too? ). Anyway the reason I decided to share my surgery experience is because maybe, hopefully it will help someone out there who’s going through something similar. In fact, if you guys are interested, I’ll …

The French Way to Maintaining Youthful Skin

by
LAURYN

As you guys know, I have discussed facial massage at length. This is by far THE beauty tip of the century. But when I travel I find it interesting to observe other cultures & see how they implement specific beauty tips into their routine & I like to see how it differs from Americans.

Anyway facial massage is LITERALLY everything. My friend, Jules Wick first told me about facial massage when I was recovering from double jaw surgery & was experiencing major swelling. It totally changed my skin! It drained my face, smoothed out wrinkles, plumped up my face in the best way, & got rid of bloating.

Today though, I want to talk specifically about the way French women utilize facial massage because it’s different than Americans. I’ve been reading Ageless Beauty the French Way: Secrets from Three Generations of French Beauty Editors by Clemence von Mueffling.

& she states that facial massage is …

How to Get Rid of Those Jowls in 5 Minutes

Hi, hello, we meet again, & SHOCKER…we’re talking about skin.

Facial massage is something I get asked about over & over. & yes, we’ve talked about it many times on The Skinny Confidential but I wanted to show you guys how to do it without a tool, just your hands & a bomb ass oil. This way you can do it anywhere, anytime, for practically free.

This specific oil we’re using is one of my favorites. I’ve talked about it before- it’s Superfood by Elemis. I’ve talked about it 100 times, yada yada, I know, BUT IT’S SO GOOD. It’s one I’m constantly going back to. Superfood is lightweight, really gets into the skin to nourish it, & reduces fine lines & wrinkles which makes it perfect for facial massage.

Benefits of Superfood Facial Oil by Elemis:

♡ highly concentrated vegan formula.

♡ contains antioxidant & omega-rich broccoli, flax seed & daikon radish to …
