How to combine your outer beauty with the inner beauty you so deserve!

I recently spoke with a wise woman about inner beauty. It has been obvious to me as a Santa Monica dermatologist for years that the most beautiful women I have treated as patients radiated with a certain energy of inner beauty. So, I got the outer beauty covered, but how does one create inner beauty that makes a woman radiate and glow?

Here is an expert’s tips on that very subject. Thank you Raeeka Yaghmai, Certified Coach Founder, CEO of Dating and Relationship Expert



Self-Love Principle #1 – Respect Yourself

It’s time to stop feeling bad about being single! Here is a different perspective: being single is a choice. Yes! A choice. You have chosen to not be with just anyone, but to be with someone who matches your values and your vision of love. Do you want to be with the wrong person just so you can have someone? NO! Own your desires, and respect your values while being open and friendly. Self-respect means you know what you want and you are at ease with it. Once you start respecting yourself, you will start putting that classy, respectful energy out there, and before you know it, that energy will start attracting the high quality guys with whom you want to have a relationship.


Self-Love Principle #2 – Learn Your Needs

Being single offers you the perfect opportunity to get to know yourself and to become more aware of what you need from life in order to be happy. You need to learn to take care of yourself first before you can take care of others, and it is often difficult for women to set boundaries and put their needs first when they are in a relationship. Just like on an airplane, you will be better equipped to take care of others if you put your own oxygen mask on first. Taking care of yourself includes making your mental and physical health a priority, as well as learning how to set healthy boundaries and how to say a “loving no”. Boundaries will always lead to a healthier relationship, and high quality guys love when you give them that kind of guidance.


Self-Love Principle #3 – Commit To Yourself

Ok, this one is a big one. We all want a partner who makes us a priority and commits to us. I can’t tell you how many women call me to get my support to help them find a man who commits to them. Here’s the deal, and listen carefully, because this is very important: having a committed relationship with a committed man starts with you committing to yourself first. This means committing to what it takes to change your love life around. It means looking deeply at yourself and your patterns, learning which ones are not working for you, and changing them into patterns that do! It means not waiting for a guy to come and make you happy, but instead, committing to your own happiness and doing what it takes to BE happy with or without a man. It means not giving up on your relationship dreams when the going gets tough, not beating yourself up when you slip up or fall short, and always continuing to believe that you deserve happiness and love.


Last but not least, Valentine’s day is not about the chocolate and the heart shaped cards, it’s about the way you choose to spend that day. So take yourself out on a great date, make a girls day/night out plan with your girlfriends. If they are in relationship, no worries plan it 2 days after or 2 days before. Treat yourself the way you’d like to be treated and keep in mind that this might be the last Valentine’s Day you’ll ever experience as a single woman, so get out there and enjoy this love-filled month to it’s fullest.


Happy Valentine’s Day! Treat yourself like a queen, because you deserve it!

I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing...

~N.F., La Habra

I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work...

~J.A. Los Angeles

Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!

~C.E. Los Angeles

Whereever Dr. Kormeili goes, my mom and I follow her. I highly recommend her. My visits are always a great experience.

~M. I., Santa Monica

I started seeing the sad signs of aging. I come all the way from Italy, 3 times a year to get Botox, fillers… and of course my VI Peels. I have seen a huge difference. Dr. Kormeili is the best! I love her!!!

~M. I., Italy

I had multiple warts on my hands and legs for the past 5 years. It was just something I learned to live with. I moved so sunny Los Angeles and decided it was time to take care of this embarrassing problem. I had appt’s with a few dermatologists, but once I found Dr. Kormeili I knew I wanted her to treat me...

~M.L., Los Angeles

Excellent. Office staff are kind and barely any wait time. Easy to make appointments and amazing friendly/intelligent dermatologist!

~M. L., Santa Monica

Dr. Kormeili is a remarkable person and an amazing doctor. She’s exact, focused and thorough, and treats you like one of the family. The results of my treatments were beyond my expectations.

~C.S., Santa Monica

I had sun damaged skin with several sun spots on my face. My entire attention was on my face, and I worried what people were thinking when they looked at me. I’m a vice president in banking and image is very important especially in the leadership role I am in. I saw Dr. Kormeili 4 months ago...

~M.M., Torrence

I absolutely love this Dr. She is so honest. My skin looks great and I feel so happy with her service and recommendations.

~M.M. Santa Monica

I was working a lot and very stressed out. One day I looked up in the mirror and I had look like I had aged about 10 years and as a woman we like to stay looking young. So a friend referred me to Dr. Kormeili for a little Botox and fillers. She was great! She took care of everything that was bothering me and then some...

~D.E., Whittier

How can someone be sad around Dr. Kormeili? She is a burst of sunshine but most of all she cares about her patients. Dr. Kormeili knew and worked on my husband before he recently passed away. He would rave about her care and skill when he had work on his face done by her. I went to Dr. Kormeili after my husband passed away...

~S.L. Los Angeles

I started seeing the sad signs of aging. I come all the way from Italy, 3 times a year to get Botox, fillers… and of course my VI Peels. I have seen a huge difference. Dr. Kormeili is the best! I love her!!!

~M. I., Italy

I had been taking antibiotic medicines for over 2 years to help control my acne; once I was prescribed Accutane in less than 3 months my face was completely gone. Of course before taking Accutane I was constantly aware of my skin, always trying to find ways to hide it and sometimes it got so hard I didn’t even want to go to school....

~C.J., Los Angeles

SHE IS THE BEST! Considerate, compassionate and thoroughly professional.

~V.L. Santa Monica

Sexual intercourse is such an integral part of a happy marriage. After months of “grin and bear it” with vaginal irritation, I mentioned my problem of having intercourse to my primary care doctor and then to my OBGYN. The good news was that the biopsy was not cancerous, however the bad news was that it was lichen...
