What Does Your Look Reveal About You?

After giving us her first impressions above, Wechsler answers Ashira's questions.

ASHIRA: After being on Accutane, I'm happy with my skin except for the intense dryness around my mouth. Why is that happening?
AW: Do you lick your lips a lot?

ASHIRA: I do, ever since I had braces when I was in college.
AW: You should do a little behavior-modification therapy on yourself. Get a lip balm you love using and tell yourself, "For one day, instead of licking my lips, I'm going to apply this instead." You'll notice a difference by day's end.

ASHIRA: What about my eyebrows?
AW: Take two weeks and let them really grow in, then have them professionally groomed and shaped. From there, all you have to do is maintain that shape with good tweezers. They will really frame your face - like the top of a picture frame. Any other big concerns?

ASHIRA: A few months ago, I started running and lost 25 pounds. But I'm going back to school to get my MBA, and I'll also be working full-time. I'm worried about not keeping up with my exercises and gaining everything back.
AW: Get a friend to run with you on a regular basis. Studies show that working out with another person is one of the best ways to stick with it - and it's more fun. You seem like you take on a lot, and you might easily frustrate yourself by trying to do too much. Start slower and be consistent rather than trying to run every day and not achieving that goal. Give yourself a break.
