Candice Swanepoel @ Victoria’s Secret 15th Anniversary of the Swim Catalog

Photo Credit: Bauer-Griffin

Initially, we were contemplating just posting up Candice Swanepoel from this event, but since Alessandra & Miranda have driven a ton of traffic for us over the years, we gotta show them love as well.

Anyway, it goes without saying that Candice is by far the hottest chick on the Victoria’s Secret payroll at the moment. Let’s hope the company shows her a ton of love by buying some time on that huge-ass billboard in SoHo (Houston & Broadway face south) or even the side of the building on Broadway (faces north). Whatever the case, what we’re demanding is a spaceship size pic of Candice pimping either a bikini or lingerie.

This isn't about me, nor is it about you, it's about the fact that it's normal to get lines around the eyes when you're smiling, there are several studies that prove it. Of course, since we aren't all alike some people's wrinkles will be more pronounced than others', it depends on the specific physiognomy of each individual. This is why some people tend to have (permanent) wrinkles around their eyes, while others have them around the mouth. Candice might already have some wrinkles despite being only 21, that's certainly not unheard of, but those wrinkles around her eyes when she's smiling are there because she's smiling. They'll probably be permanent in 10 years or so, but for now those deep lines around her eyes are only there because she's smiling.

People may get laughter lines but they aren't as pronounced as that. Her skin is dehydrated, you can tell because the lines are very deep. I get SLIGHT laughter lines, but they are not in any way like that and they are certainly not underneath my eyes. My friends who smoke and who have abused the sun get similar lines to Candice though. Sorry, guess you're wrong. And who smiles in front of a mirror? I'm talking about in pictures where I have been laughing. Maybe you get these lines and maybe you need a better lifestyle/skin care regime.

Like I said, they're the reflection of an honest smile which means they only show when you're smiling because you feel joy. It won't work if you're smiling in front of the mirror because that's not an honest smile. It has nothing to do with age, even children have wrinkles around their eyes when they smile.

"The first recorded scientific studies into smiling were in the early part of the nineteenth century when French scientist Guillaume Duchenne de Boulogne used electrodiagnostics and electrical stimulation to distinguish between the smile of real enjoyment and other kinds of smiling. He analysed the heads of people executed by guillotine to study how the face muscles worked. He pulled face muscles from many different angles to catalogue and record which muscles caused which smiles. He discovered that smiles are controlled by two sets of muscles: the zygomatic major muscles, which run down the side of the face and connect to the corners of the mouth and the orbicularis oculi, which pull the eyes back. The zygomatic majors pull the mouth back to expose the teeth and enlarge the cheeks, while the orbicularis oculi make the eyes narrow and cause 'crow's feet'. These muscles are important to understand because the zygomatic majors are consciously controlled - in other words, they are used to produce false smiles of fake enjoyment to try to appear friendly or subordinate. The orbicularis oculi at the eyes act independently and reveal the true feelings of a genuine smile. So the first place to check the sincerity of a smile is to look for wrinkle lines beside the eyes.

A natural smile produces characteristic wrinkles around the eyes - insincere people smile only with their mouth."

Yeah that's true, Naomi looks amazing! Try silica too, it stimulates collagen production apparently? I believe in it anyway! :)

I am a pharmacist but love natural health and nutrition. You sound just like me..lol My favorite place to shop is the health food store or the organic aisle at the supermarket... But because of that, I have to shop at Payless shoes to balance it out financially. I'm going to buy some rose hip oil today to try it out. Thanks. :)

Yes, blondes have less collagen and thinner skin in general. Look at Naomi Campbell. She lives a rough life and still no wrinkles. (black don't crack)

Is that true about blondes? I didn't know that!

Yes I'm a factor 50 girl everyday too! I love rose hip seed oil too and take silica complex and it really does improve my skin, hair and nails. I find that natural remedies are the best. I've used creme de la mer and it was just an expensive waste of time. As you say sunscreen is vital and loads of water, fruit and no smoking!

sunscreen stat or she'll get that leathery appearance. Blondes don't age well. I wear sunscreen every day even when it's raining. Obsessive? yes...but worth it. :)

She is only 21 you know. I think her skin looks really dehydrated. She needs to take care of it now before she gets permanent ageing.

I'm guessing he only took a look at the very first pic, in which she has on showcase her (gummy) smile, sky blue/ocean coloured eyes, and (acne) covered skin, which does indeed make her look more rascal-like lol. But it is fairly evident that in the other ones, she does resemble a full-grown, mature adult woman! I don't know what he's on about.

Everyone has wrinkles around the eyes when smiling. It's actually a sign of an honest smile.
