Believe it or not one of the biggest unknown face rejuv is the easiest beauty tip in your tool box – laughter. Now we all know it makes you feel good but it’s too easy right? Well I heard Christie Brinkley talking about secrets to her great, lasting looks and she cited one tip as laughter. It got me to thinking. I have heard of laugh therapy. So I looked up to see if there is actually science behind laughter and there is! According to LifeHack laughing releases endorphins (the same awesome feel good chemical released during a run, sex or when moms breast feed:

While the release of endorphins is increased, the stress hormone cortisol is reduced. Laughing expands the lungs, stretches the muscles in the body and stimulates homeostasis. This exercises the body, replenishing the cells from a lungful of oxygen and gaining all the benefits of exercising the body.

Yay! I knew there was a reason I love watching Amy Schumer’s stand-up! So do you hear that? Looking stressed and not your best, LAUGH!
