Never mind those pricey anti-aging creams, a simple smile could have you looking several years younger in an instant. A new study has revealed that ‘smiley, happy people‘ were more attractive and had a more youthful appearance than their solemn counterparts. My new slogan will now be: “A smile a day, keeps the wrinkles away!” Want PROOF? Take a look at my 89-year-old Dad who is ALWAYS smiling after the jump and SEE how very few wrinkles a man his age has because of his smiley & happy disposition!
The study asked 150 men and women to guess the ages of the faces from over 1,000 photographs and found that while neutral facial expressions generated the most accurate age guesses, happy faces were voted as the youngest looking.
A study by a Canadian University found that laughter makes you more attractive too! The study found that smiley people seem more approachable, plus when you laugh, your blood supply increases, causing a rosy glow to the skin, making it appear more youthful and appealing to look at.
Here is my awesome Father-in-law John Young, who is ’89 years YOUNG!’ He cracks up everyone he meets, when he calls himself ‘old man Young,’ and he is ALWAYS smiling! He sure does not look his age to me. And his SMILE is so contagious, that is why I am smiling ear to ear too!
