Beauty: anti-wrinkle patches

There’s nothing to beat Botox for its frown-smoothing effects, but those preferring a less invasive way to ease away wrinkles may want to try Frownies. Yes, those reassuringly lo-fi, gummed paper triangles do actually work. Moisten the back and stick over frown lines, crow’s feet and nose to mouth lines to prevent repeated creasing of the skin. Wear overnight for smoothed out lines in the morning. A word of warning though: make sure to slighty turn the edges back on themselves as the edges have a tendency to curl towards the skin, and if this happens repeatedly, you could end up with more lines than you started with.
