It looks like Kim K wasn’t the first one to discover not smiling everyday makes the wrinkles go away.
50-year-old Tess Christian claims she hasn’t smiled in about 40 years, to avoid getting wrinkles and to maintain her youthful look.
According to Daily Mail, Tess says “‘I don’t have wrinkles because I have trained myself to control my facial muscles,’ says Tess, ‘Everyone asks if I’ve had Botox, but I haven’t, and I know that it’s thanks to the fact I haven’t laughed or smiled since I was a teenager. My dedication has paid off, I don’t have a single line on my face’“.
“‘Yes, I am vain and want to remain youthful. My strategy is more natural than Botox and more effective than any expensive beauty cream or facial.’“
