Remembering hearing from a certainly celebrity (they know who they are) that smiling ages you and causes wrinkles? Well, it’s time to cast that out of your memory because it is dead wrong.
Turns out smiling makes other perceive you as more attractive. A Psychologists at Swansea University had a group of volunteers rate people’s faces and it revealed that those with genuine smiles looks “more glowing and healthy” compared to those with neutral expressions or forced smiles.
Dr. Alex Jones, an expert on facial expression and researcher, said, “a smile was a more important cue than how old the face appeared to be, and more recent research has shown a happy expression is even more important than cues like body fat or skin coloration.”
Throw out those expensive creams because, as Annie sang, ‘you’re never fully dressed without a smile.’ Yes, I just quotes a musical 😉
