It doesn't matter where you go, there are always, at least, a handful of people using their smart phones to snap pictures of themselves.

With its incredible results, it's no wonder why facial procedures like Botox are more popular than ever! In addition to having an easy cosmetic procedure done, you will certainly want to try these three tips for snapping a flattering picture of yourself:

1) Wear a shirt that complements your skin tone.

Even if your shirt doesn't appear in the photo, it will help ensure your skin looks its best. For many women, red and pink are two of the most flattering colors because they give your skin a natural glow.

2) Debut a new, playful smile.

Many women find that they have the same look on their face in lots of pictures. Try something new and experiment with different smiles. You can practice in the mirror and find one that looks playful and even sexy.

3) Go with wild, tousled hair.

If you have imperfections that you'd rather cover up or distract attention from, let your hair take center stage. Selfies are the perfect outlet for a less polished look. Try a hairstyle that looks like you've just come in from a windy walk along the sea and you might be surprised by your youthful appearance!
