Smile: Don’t Fear the Wrinkles
World Smile Day is Oct 7, 2016. It’s a day of celebration that encourages people to:
- Perform acts of kindness
- Be friendly to others
- Smile to make others smile
If you are concerned about getting facial wrinkles, you may be tempted to minimize the time spent doing #3 on the list. But luckily, it turns out that smiling may actually help prevent wrinkles and lines!
Facial lines are really caused by reduced skin elasticity, fat loss and muscle atrophy due to aging, genetics, environmental factors, lifestyle habits and exposure to ultraviolet rays.
How Smiling Keeps You Looking Younger
- Builds and tightens facial muscles
- Improves firmness in the cheeks
- Keeps skin elasticity
- Reduces skin sagging
- Works against the formation of anger and frown lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the mouth
Smiling can make you feel happier on the inside, look more attractive on the outside and your smile will be contagious to others around you. However, if your appearance is preventing you from smiling as often as you like, contact us to discuss facial rejuvenation options.
