Habitual squinting or scowling causes skin to wrinkle. "Relaxing your face through massage can help to soften those creases," explains Laura Hittleman, corporate beauty services director at Canyon Ranch. Try this technique from Christeen Millar, training executive for the skincare line Cle de Peau Beaute, which offers free massages at store counters: Spread a nickel-size dollop of cream onto clean facial skin. With the pads of your middle and ring fingers (they exert the gentlest pressure), make long strokes from the center of the forehead up and out toward the temples; do the same from the center of your chin to the jawline. Finally, massage the cheeks in upward circular motions. Repeat the process three times. You'll see an immediate glow (massage enhances skin's circulation) and, when done at least three days a week, less-obvious lines.
