You know how your mom always tells you to smile for pictures? Well if you’re trying to look older you should definitely be doing that! According to a new study out of Canada, when you smile in a photo it makes you look an average of one year older. This is because when you’re smiling it accentuates the any wrinkles in your face.
There is good news though! There is a facial expression that makes you look younger. So if you’re going for a younger look, try to look surprised, or put yourself in a surprising situation. Like this woman! Look how young she looks in this photo?
We say to take this survey with a grain of salt. Stay smiling and happy even if they say it makes you look old!
