How do facial expressions affect the look of our face?

Coco Chanel claimed, “Nature gives you the face you have at twenty. Life shapes the face you have at thirty. But at fifty you get the face you deserve.”

The face is predominantly a medium of emotions and a communication tool. Based on facial appearance we decide what traits we attribute to certain people. Long-term experience of emotions, also those repressed and unprocessed, affect the look of the face and form wrinkles.

Do you want to learn how facial muscles are linked to emotion-processing regions of the brain?

How facial expressions affect the look of our face?

You can find it all in an exceptional e-book about the emotional side of the face. A must-read  for all those who want to understand their emotions and thus influence how their face looks like. Having read it, you will gain a different perspective on yourself and you will appreciate and like your face again.

Learn the meaning of facial expressions and grow fond of your emotional face

We pay a lot of attention to body muscle training. We practice sports and undergo massage sessions, while treating facial muscles with a cream or botulinum toxin (Botox) at most, preventing them from fulfilling their key functions.

We classify wrinkles to dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles are mimic wrinkles, whereas static wrinkles are those that deepen over time and are visible on the face regardless of the facial expression. They are caused by the natural skin ageing process, loss of collagen fibres, but also genetic and lifestyle-related factors.

Depending on the reason, several types of skin ageing are distinguished, namely: 

1. Intrinsic ageing:

  • Related to ageing (chronological),
  • hormonal (menopausal);
  • facial ageing (mio-ageing), that is, ageing related to facial expressions;

2. Extrinsic ageing:

  • related to excessive exposure to UV radiation UV — photo-ageing;
  • related to cigarette smoke — the ‘smoker’s skin’
  • sleep-related (due to the position of the skin in one’s sleep)
  • gravitational (due to the natural skin ageing process)

How can we combine the knowledge of facial expressions with the emotional meaning of wrinkles? 

Mimic wrinkles are lines formed on the skin of the face due to ongoing tension of mimic muscles. They are more noticeable in individuals characterised by a wide range of facial expressions and more prominent in certain areas. They may appear as early as in people over 25 years old, and become deeper and permanent over time.  The more often we experience an emotion, the sooner and more prominently it is marked on the face in the area of a given muscle that is being repeatedly engaged.

The face has an abundance of muscles,  part of which are responsible exclusively for expressing emotions

For instance:

  • The muscles of the forehead – express attention, empathy, and tension; they cause horizontal furrows on the forehead.
  • The corrugator supercilii, the orbicularis oculi, and the procerus muscle cause vertical wrinkles on the forehead. These accompany concentration, anger, irritability, the emotions of pain, disgust, or a focused vision as in the case of short-sightedness, for instance.
  • The orbicularis oculi cause the so-called crow’s feet to form; the levator labii superioris and the zygomaticus major (responsible for smiling) contribute to the formation of nasolabial folds.
  • The orbicularis oris causes radial lip wrinkles, while the depressor anguli oris and the geniohyoid muscles (the expression of sadness) cause wrinkles in the lip and cheek areas.

By combining the knowledge of how mimic muscles affect expressions and their emotional meaning you can create a map of emotions for the face. Every person has their own individual map, since each of us can react with a different emotions to a similar situation.
