Smiling can have anti ageing effects

23 Nov

Have you noticed how much more attractive people seem when they smile? Not only do they seem more vibrant and happy, but recent studies also suggest that smiling could hold the key to lasting youth by helping us look and feel younger.

Manuel Voelkle, of the Max Planck Institute in Berlin, asked over 150 men and women to judge the ages of the faces in more than 1,000 photos. The study found that the ages of those who were smiling were most often underestimated. It also revealed that female faces were judged to be on average three years younger than their male counterparts.

Cosmetic procedures and creams are not the only way to look young. Just by smiling you can lift your spirits, create a positive effect on your physical environment and reduce stress; all factors that help reduce ageing!

With anti-ageing proven to be one of a smiles many benefits, I encourage you to get out there and show off your pearly whites. And the best part is it’s free!
