I think so: I am big believer that our outer beauty is affected by our inner health and wellness. I do not have any strong scientific data, but in my experience, my patients with stress loose their aesthetiec results sooner than those with less stress.

Naturally: Face yourself in front of a mirror. Notice the difference in your facial muscles when you smile and frown. Massage your facial muscles with skin softeners or cleansers to increase tone and delay the wrinkling process. Good luck!
