According to the ancient Chinese tradition of xiàng shù (face reading), the lines of our faces reveal not only the type of life we have lived but also how long we will live. The lines of our forehead show the way of our thinking as well as parental influence. That long line from the bridge of your nose down to your chin is called the Long Laugh Line. It’s the best. It says you will live past your 70s and those “crow’s feet” show that you are not easily fooled.

So skip that facelift and Botox. Every precious little line tells the world what a special person you are.
