Now that you've spotted your emotional wrinkles, it is time to de-wrinkle your emotions. Aninvestigation in the Annals of Plastic Surgery discovered that just making changes in your eyebrowposition can significantly reduce forehead wrinkles. Let's not just stop there, let's de-wrinkle theentire face. Step 3: Emotional de-wrinkling Get your emotion-spotting list and a mirror that shows at least your entire face. Next, look in themirror. Now, experience the first emotion on your list and observe the deep wrinkle this emotioncreates. Then twitch your face muscles (without using your hands) in whatever way necessary toremove or lessen the depth of your wrinkles. For example, when driving and doing emotion spotting, I have a tense look and emotion thatforges the deep eyebrow wrinkle (one of the major wrinkles Botox is designed to fix). To get rid ofthis annoying wrinkle, I have to lift my eyebrows. Once you have adjusted your mimetic muscles to get rid of wrinkles, hold your muscles in that newposition for at least two minutes. Glance at the mirror every other moment to make sure that yourare still eliminating that wrinkle. The magic here is that during these two minutes, you are going to feel a new emotion- the "de-wrinkling emotion". Turning back to my driving example, when I raise my eyebrows to hide the surfacing deep wrinklebetween my eyebrows, I start to feel excited instead of tense. Therapists have witnessed theability of altering facial muscle expressions to almost instantaneously alter one's emotional state ofmind. This works on wrinkles too. Step 4: Emotion-spotting cataloguing To illustrate emotion-spotting cataloguing, on my emotion-spotting list, the first line of my de-wrinkling chart, I would list, "tension" in column one, "eyebrow wrinkle" in column two, and"excited" in column three. Repeat Step 3 for each of your "Habitual emotions" using your own emotion-spotting list. Step 5: Monitor your emotions to keep wrinkles away Wrinkles' secret to life is stealth. They sneak on your face while you are working, daydreaming,eating, driving and exercising. Essentially, any time you feel any emotion, you've got a definitechance of penciling in a new or deeper wrinkle. Monitor your emotions on a weekly basis to ensurethat you're not creating unwanted wrinkles by holding on too long to emotions that contribute toforming deep wrinkles. Have your emotions, but don't let them linger long enough to birth wrinkles. So now, as you walk around with your compact mirror and envious onlookers quizzically query,"Who do you think you are, Miss America", just inform them that you are using "emotional de-wrinkling" and that they should try it. As I say, "Stay self-aware. Stay beautiful".
