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.
