Says Arseniy: I was born with a big wide nose and around age of 12 I started to be ashamed of it. I even tried to save money to have a plastic surgery. When I was around 23 years old I reconciled with myself. I didn’t save up any money back then. Nowadays there are clothespins for the nose, it is assumed that if you wear them the nose becomes thinner. Now I’m 36 years old and I finally decided to try various devices and procedures except for the surgery to understand whether they can somehow improve my appearance. In fact, wearing certain masks to adjust the shape of the face or clothespins reducing the nose turned out to be a real self-torture. I don’t know if this works or not. There is no evidence this cream or that mask actually work. The result of some body care treatments is promised unless it regularly used for several years or even a lifetime.
This series of images are self portraits. I have been trying different care treatments which has bought online such as chin cheek slim lift up anti wrinkle mask, face slim exerciser muscle lips, nose up lifting shaping clip other face care staff.
