Wrinkles

Do you consider yourself to be an upbeat, optimistic person? Are you happy with where your life is right now? Your face might be telling people otherwise, according to NBC News. Specifically, the signs of aging may be leading individuals to think that you’re sad and angry, even when you’re not!

At the annual meeting of the Association for Psychological Science, a study was presented that looked at how people generally view others and judge them based on their facial appearances. Creases and furrows led many people to think that the faces they were looking at belonged to older, sad individuals, even though this wasn’t necessarily true. Now that you’ve heard the science behind the assumptions, you likely don’t want to be one of these misjudged people!

There are a couple of ways you can fight signs of aging on a daily basis. When you moisturize, try to use a lotion that contains SPF to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays. TheĀ American Academy of Dermatology claims that wearing sunscreen every day can reduce the development of wrinkles. Woman’s Day magazine notes that staying hydrated and drinking plenty of water might also help you combat fine lines.

Shayna reports on the latest makeup, skincare and fashion trends and will try to convince you on a regular basis that yes, you really should wear sunscreen daily. My favorite beauty product is... - Anything containing sea salt. It's probably the most amazing exfoliant I've ever used and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and smoother than ever. Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
