The Lowdown On Resting Bitch Face

Resting bitch face, also known as RBF, less commonly as resting dog face[1], or incorrectly labeled as bitchy resting face, is a facial expression which unintentionally appears as if a person is angry, annoyed, irritated, or contemptuous, particularly when the individual is relaxed or not particularly expressing an emotion.

For those of you who are constantly asked if you are tired/ upset/ if you can see the computer screen, we got your back. We know your eyebrows are in love with each other and you just cannot help it.

As Lady Gaga says, ‘Baby, you were born this way’.

I chose Botox to alleviate my Resting Dog Face (thank God that name didn’t stick). And no, I will not apologise for writing about turmeric masks whilst sitting at my doctor’s office, waiting for my two little injections inbetween my eyebrows.

Botox was my decision but it doesn’t have to be yours. Here are some options to help make your RBF more of a ‘I just got back from a three month yoga retreat in Ubud‘ face.

FaceGym: The non invasive workout for your face.

At FaceGym, highly trained therapists work at exercising and waking up the 40+  muscles of the face. Amplified with technology and high performance skincare products, you will see your eyebrows breaking up with each other, lifting, and the entire face opening up. Your face will look less tired, more awake and ultimately younger.

(Do not fear if you don’t live in London. There is a nifty gadget you can buy from these guys as well.)

FaceGym Pro Yellow

This is a personal trainer for your face. Busting the bitch face head-on with technology. Looking after your skin is one thing but looking after the underlying muscles is what’s going to lift those jowls, eyebrows and cheeks. This is a must for any at home anti-aging.

Tackle it with a Pro

‘Ooooooh no I couldn’t’ we hear you say about Botox. Fair enough. We would never tell anyone to have Botox. Firstly we would recommend looking after the health of your skin, but if those frown lines are just not taking a hike then Botox is a pretty straightforward fix.

Botox typically takes about one week to 10 days to set in. If it’s just for frown-lines then you can still move your face. You won’t be able to frown much but, hey, at least you can be annoyed without anyone knowing.

Alison Telfer at the Glasshouse Clinic in Clapham is our personal recommendation. When it comes to the face, Alison just gets it. She has a beautiful touch and leaves an even more beautiful finish.

Beat it with Technology

Now if you don’t quite want to hit it with the needles then there are still super advanced options that will also help do the trick.

Let me name drop here: Teresa Tarmey, skin expert to the stars. She has given many models longevity on the runway and she uses machines like Muscle Mechanic. Lifting with radio frequency, plumping with micro-needling, and zapping away those lines with every light and laser under the sun.

Teresa will tackle more concerns in 90 minutes than you ever thought possible. She will save you money and time. And most of all she will save you from having to explain why you look tired when you are not.

There are many options and treatments that can help with the forehead and eyebrows. We can’t go into them all but please feel free to pop as a line and we can direct you in the direction best for you.
