Woman makes a conscious decision not to smile for nearly 40 years

3 February 2015 / 1 year 8 months ago

Tess Christian claims she hasn't smiled for nearly 40 years -- all because she wants to avoid getting wrinkles.

According to an article in Metro, the 50-year-old calls it her natural alternative to Botox.

"I don’t have wrinkles because I have trained myself to control my facial muscles," Tess told MailOnline, adding ‘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.’

Tess goes on: ‘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.’
