The belief that faces can be lucky and unlucky is something as old as the hills. Our grandmothers subscribed to it and in the old days, they would search intently for such signs in their offspring and potential sons and daughters-in-law.
The face is where expert destiny experts look for symbolic mountains and rivers on the face, for these are regarded as the vital indicators of wealth and abundant good fortune. Scoff at your own peril. But if you, like countless Asians subscribe to this belief that ‘your face is your fortune’, then here are what you need to look out for, and what you can do about it.

Start by looking at the central axis of the face as this the crucial starting point of anyone’s destiny. How your life will pan out in terms of good times and bad times is strongly indicated by the symmetry and balance of the two sides of the face.
Your forehead foretells your “fortune”. A smooth, rounded forehead foretells a smooth future, filled with abundance. Of particular significance is area between your brows. It is of celestial importance that this area be free from marks, lines and indentations if you want to have a successful career.
There is some truth to this notion above. Perhaps in the old days, one who had a very hard life would crinkle their foreheads up in worry, resulting in lines and deep wrinkles. This in turn gave rise to the idea that a crinkled and creased forehead would belong to someone who had a tougher outlook in life.
ENHANCE: Smoothen forehead lines with anti-wrinkle injections such as Botox. New age Botox applications by expert aesthetic doctors are so subtle and precise that you would look line-less yet natural, and be in possession of full facial expressions.
Those with very bony or sunken foreheads can also benefit from Revitalift. This soft filler made from natural hyaluronic acid gives plumpness and suppleness to the forehead area, and helps to fill out depressions and shadows. While K-pop stars use this to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing look, there are also others who do so for more earthly reasons such as a smooth and brighter future
The temples are often overlooked but are surprising indicators of age. Individuals with sunken temples not only look older than their years, but also may have partners who often stray, according to face readers. All the more reason why we should be looking at this area to ensure they are filled and smooth.
ENHANCE: Fill sunken temples with natural hyaluronic acid fillers. These fillers can be carefully and simply injected into the temple area to not only rejuvenate your entire face but bestow blessings for future relationships for you.
Who knew ancient Chinese philosophers had a “nose” for English idioms? If fengshui is to be believed, snobby people really do have their “noses in the air”, so to speak: A pleasingly high arch on your honker may mean lots of moolah.
ENHANCE: If accruing wealth is on your priority list, consider “investing” in minimally invasive nose fillers to mold the tip and bridge of your nose. Fillers are great if you have an uneven surface or a bump on your nose, a big no-no if you want to have a positive outlook on your life. Fillers can not only be used to add height but also smoothen the bridge of the nose for a more attractive appearance.
Nose thread lifts have also been rising in popularity as they are able to add very defined height to the nose bridge. It is good for people who want a very sculpted appearance as nose threads tend to be finer and so are able to elevate the nose bridge without making it look broader.
