Shoppers spot awkward photo fail in new Boohoo campaign where model is clipped into dress to make it fit

BOOHOO shoppers have spotted an awkward photo fail in the retailer’s latest campaign.

The All That Glitters party collection features a host of models including Victoria Secret alumni Jasmine Tookes, who was victim to the photo editing slip-up.

In the campaign shot, the US model can be seen crouching down wearing a pink fitted dress from the collection, and it seems that the stylist forgot to remove a plastic peg from the back.

The blunder was spotted by Cosmopolitan, who questioned how well the outfits fit if a clothes peg was needed to keep Jasmine’s dress form-fitting.

Fabulous Digital has contacted Boohoo for a comment.

The collection was launched back in November ahead of the Christmas party season and featured a whole range of dance floor ready ensembles.

The campaign also featured fellow Victoria’s Secret models Elsa Hosk, Josephine Skriver and Romee Strijd.

Boohoo is not the first retailer to come under fire for using clothes pegs to make clothes appear more fitted.

In April, eagle-eyed shoppers spotted bulldog clips being used to make a model's dress look more fitted.

A tweet revealing the blunder received over 11,000 likes and dozens of comments from angry shoppers who argued that this is why clothes don’t fit.

In other fashion news, this shopper slammed PrettyLittleThing after receiving a bodysuit which "stinks" and has white stains in the crotch.

Plus this shopper lashed out after finding skid marks and pubic hair in the crotch of her PrettyLittleThing bodysuit.

Meanwhile this woman was outraged after PrettyLittleThing offered to send her original delivery as long as she deleted a negative social mediapost after order mix-up.

Watch Camila Mendes Share Her Nightly Skin Care Routine

You may know Camila Mendes as the fiery character Veronica on The CW’s Riverdale. Now, you can also get to know her as a vigilant skin care fiend. In this episode of Go to Bed with Me, Mendes walks us through her entire routine, covering everything from luxurious moisturizing and ginseng cream to Secret deodorant and lip balm.

Shop Camila’s Routine

“My skin is pretty balanced,” Mendes begins, “but it does get on the drier side, so I think I just try to layer on as much moisturizer as I can.”

As with any good skin care routine, the first step is to take off any makeup, which Mendes does with Burt’s Bee’s makeup remover wipes. “I don’t love using makeup wipes, because I feel like it’s rubbing paper on your face,” she says. “But also, I think they just work the fastest, and I ain’t got time to waste.”

Mendes adds that working on Riverdale has negatively led to consequences for her skin. “Just ’cause the schedule, and that with the lack of sleep and the long days, your skin just really reacts,” she says. “I went from being someone with really easy skin, and I think, comparatively, my skin is pretty chill, but I break out a lot more than I ever did when I was growing up.”

To combat the more frequent breakouts, Mendes makes use of skin care goodies like Renée Rouleau’s Rapid Response Detox Cleanser, Detox Masque, the Triple Berry Smoothing Peel, and more.

Mendes’s most unusual beauty hack? Apply antiperspirant at night before bed. “I’ve heard that it’s actually more effective to put it on at night. Then it actually works into your body. By the time you wake up it’s done its work,” says the actress, who works with Secret on their new line of essential oil-infused deodorants. “I have a weird thing about dry armpits. I need to feel moisturized all over my body.”

What the Love Actually cast look like now – 16 years after the film hit cinemas

FOR many, having the first festive watch of Love Actually is a sign that Christmas has well and truly arrived.

Since the heartwarming movie was released in 2003, it has become a yuletide staple and is popular each year and Boris Johnson has even released a video inspired by the film to urge Brits to back him.

The three-minute clip – entitled Brexit Actually – features the PM on a woman’s doorstep and using written signs to ask for her vote – and warns the election is "closer than you think".

The spoof of the iconic British rom-com shows the PM peeling the signs away one by one as silent night plays in the background, before he tells the camera “enough, enough – let’s get this done”.

When Love Actually was first released,movie lovers in their droves flocked to see the A-list cast in the cheery rom com, and many have gone from strength to strength in their careers.

But what has happened to Joanna the singing schoolgirl or Sam, the boy who was in love with her? Here Fabulous Digital explores where the stars are now, 16 years down the line…

Olivia Olson

Olivia stole the show when she sang Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas is You at just 11 years old.

Now the American actress is 27, living in LA, and you may have followed her on this year's Celebrity X Factor, where she ended up coming 12th.

Olivia has also been part of the cast behind the animated series Adventure Time on Cartoon network, where she voices Marceline the Vampire Queen.

She has also worked on Disney's Phineas and Ferb, where she voices Vanessa Doofenshmirtz.

Heike Makatsch

German actress Heike Makatsch became one of the biggest villains of Christmas when her character Mia flirted with her married boss Harry, played by the late Alan Rickman, in the movie.

One of the most emotional scenes saw Harry buy Mia a gold necklace, which his wife Karen, played by Emma Thompson, had thought was for her.

After flirty Mia, Heike played Leisel's mother in the movie version of The Book Thief in 2013. 

Thomas Brodie-Sangster 

In Love Actually, Thomas stole hearts as the adorable step-son son of Liam Neeson's character.

Game of Thrones fans will recall that the young actor starred in the hit HBO series as Jojen Reed, who is tasked with protecting Bran Stark.

The now-29-year-old also starred in the movie franchise Maze Runner and has also featured in Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and Phineas Ferb.

Andrew Lincoln

Another heartbreaking love scene is when Andrew Lincoln's character Mark struggles with his feelings for his best friend's wife Juliet, played by Keira Knightley.

One of the most memorable scenes from the film sees him express his love to Juliet via some cardboard signs outside her house.

Since his tragic storyline in Love Actually, Andrew's career has boomed, starring in AMC series The Walking Dead as sheriff deputy Rick Grimes.

Keira Knightley

Keira was just 18 years old when she played Juliet in Love Actually, and she's added numerous film credits to her list ever since.

She was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in Pride and Prejudice and The Imitation Game.

Keira is now one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood, and has stolen the show in movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean and The Duchess.

Hugh Grant

Hugh Grant was one of the more lovable characters in the Christmas film, playing the newly-elected Prime Minister David.

He's gone on to do the Bridget Jones sequel, The Edge of Reason, but declined the offer to star in the third and recent movie, Bridget Jones's Baby, released in 2016, unlike co-star Colin Firth.

Hugh has starred in the likes of Paddington 2, Did You Hear About the Morgans and The Rewrite.

Colin Firth

Colin was a hit in Love Actually starring as heartbroken Jamie, who finds his wife has been cheating on him with his brother.

Thankfully it wasn't all sad for Jamie, who ended up finding love with his Portuguese housekeeper.

Colin has certainly kept busy since his Love Actually days, adding The King's Speech, Tom Ford's A Single Man, and the John le Carré adaptation Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy under his belt.

He also starred in the third Bridget Jones movie in 2016.

Rowan Atkinson

Who can forget Rowan's hilarious performance in Love Actually as annoying jewellery salesman Rufus?

Of course, Rowan is no stranger to comedy, and has gone on to star in numerous Mr Bean and Johnny English sequels.

The most recent, Johnny English 3, was released last year, and saw him feature opposite the film's Prime Minister, played by fellow Love Actually favourite Emma Thompson.

Martine McCutcheon

Former Eastender stars, Martine was memorable in Love Actually as the cheerful Downing Street staff member who swore at the Prime Minister, but ends up winning his heart.

Martine has since proved her talents off the screen on the stage, winning an Olivier for her role as Eliza in My Fair Lady in the West End.

She has also kept busy on Spooks, in a Tesco ad and has even published a novel called The Mistress.

Martine has also been a panellist on Loose Women, alongside the likes of Katie Price, Andrea McLean, Nadia Swahala and Ruth Langsford.

Martin Freeman

Martin has also had an impressive string of movies since Love Actually, where he played John, a stand-in on adult films.

He has gone on to feature in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Hot Fuzz and Nativity!

However, two of his biggest gigs to date are him landing the roles of Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit, with the first movie being released in 2012, and Dr John Watson in Sherlock from 2010 to 2017.

He also starred in Black Panther in 2018 and is currently working on the sequel.

January Jones

January played Jeannie, one of the attractive American girls that sex-obsessed Colin bumps into in Wisconsin.

She was the ringleader of the group of girls who fall for his English accent and charms.

A few years later in 2007, she was cast as Betty Draper in Mad Men, which ran until 2015.

Alan Rickman

Alan was already an acting legend when he starred as Harry in Love Actually, having been in Die Hard, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and Sense and Sensibility, with Love Actually co-stars Emma Thompson and Hugh Grant.

He had already taken on the iconic role of Severus Snape in the Harry Potter franchise.

Tragically, Alan passed away in 2016 at the age of 69, having won a Bafta, Emmy, a Golden Globe and a SAG in his lifetime.

We shared how there was a classic scene in Love Actually that Hugh Grant absolutely hated shooting.

And Love Actually fans can move into charming £2m mews house from iconic scene in film.

Princess Beatrice’s pals ‘concerned’ as Prince Andrew’s ’embarrassing’ scandal threatens to ruin wedding – The Sun

ALTHOUGH stressful at times, planning your wedding is supposed to be a happy and enjoyable experience.

But friends of Princess Beatrice are said to be growing increasingly concerned after the scandal surrounding her father, Prince Andrew, threatens to overshadow the big day.

According to a royal source speaking to ET, 31-year-old Bea hasn't set a wedding date yet, despite getting engaged to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi earlier this year.

Reports indicated that the princess would be married in 2020, although as of yet there have been no updates on a venue or even a date.

The source told the publication that"the family is very disappointed" adding that Prince Andrew has "embarrassed" them.

"Everyone right now is concerned about Bea. Poor Bea. She deserves to have the wedding she wants and the public is going to go nuts [because of her father]," the source told ET.

Over the weekend, it was reported that Beatrice had decided to cancel her engagement party following the backlash.

It was thought the princess was set to host a lavish bash at Chiltern Firehouse on December 18.

According to the Mail on Sunday: “Bea has had to change the date of her engagement party at the Chiltern Firehouse because of fears there will be too many photographers outside – looking for him."

Prince Andrew, 59, is said to be on the guest list but it’s unclear whether he will attend the high-profile event after stepping back from royal duties.

This comes as a second Epstein victim has come forward to claim she had sex with Prince Andrew. 

Buckingham Palace said they would not be commenting on the latest claims but Andrew repeatedly denied the claims of Virginia Roberts, who said she was ordered to have sex with Andrew when she was 17.

In other royal news, we told you how Meghan Markle told fans to buy their men socks and a shaving kit in throwback Christmas gift guide.

We also revealed how Prince Harry was ‘so embarrassed’ when Prince George sold him out for behaving oddly in front of Barack Obama.

And we showed you Meghan Markle’s friend was told to remove ‘damaging’ photos of the duchess she was using to flog her jewellery.

‘Love, Actually’ star Rodrigo Santoro goes rogue in Hulu’s ‘Reprisal’

Rodrigo Santoro walks into a cafe on New York’s West Side at 9 o’clock on a Sunday morning, wearing dark denim jeans, a NASA bomber jacket, sunglasses and bedhead. Seeing as it’s an obscenely early hour by Manhattan standards — the city that never sleeps is definitely still slumbering and the normally bustling Meatpacking District streets might as well have tumbleweeds blowing down them. And Santoro seems to be a bit groggy, too: “I would love a coffee, a strong one,” he says, taking off his shades.

It’s not that he was out clubbing the night before — it’s that the 44-year-old Brazilian actor, perhaps best known as Laura Linney’s heartbreakingly sweet love interest, Karl, in the beloved holiday favorite “Love, Actually,” has been working nonstop, simultaneously filming roles on both HBO’s “Westworld,” which shot its upcoming season in Los Angeles and Spain, and Hulu’s new, highly anticipated revenge tale “Reprisal,” which films in Wilmington, NC.

The morning before our meeting, Santoro flew from Wilmington to NYC and then spent a marathon day promoting “Reprisal” and posing for selfies with fans at New York Comic Con.

Not that he’s complaining. “I’m having the time of my life,” he says. “It’s been challenging, because the roles are so different. I’ll have to go to LA for a week, and then fly back down and jump right back into ‘Reprisal.’ But both productions have been cool about working with each other.”

On “Westworld,” about a futuristic theme park where guests are guided by robotic “hosts” (Season 3 premieres in 2020), Santoro plays Hector, an artificial being. In the hyper-noir “Reprisal” — which premiered last week and is described by Santoro as “Quentin Tarantino and David Lynch get into a car wreck” — he plays Joel, the tough-guy leader of a gang called the Banished Brothers.

“It’s tricky because Hector is not human, and Joel is as human as it gets. He’s all about his past, his 7-year-old daughter and his flaws. He’s 180 degrees from who I am, so that really intrigued me. I’m always looking to do things that are completely different than anything I’ve done before.”

“Reprisal” also marks the first time Santoro has played a character with substantial facial hair: specifically, the hipster-bartender beard he’s constantly pulling and smoothing over with his hand as he talks.

“The beard in the heat is … sweaty,” he says, tugging on the look, which took him three months to grow. “It’s very humid in North Carolina, and we shot all summer — my God. Joel is sweaty — it became part of the character. When you watch, know that that is real sweat. The other thing about the long beard is that you’ll find a piece of something in it and be like, ‘What is this?’” Since his “Westworld” alter ego, Hector, has a tight beard and mustache, it begs the question: How do they manage flipping between the two looks?

“They make movie magic,” he says with a laugh. “I can’t talk about ‘Westworld’ or I will get” — he pantomimes slitting his throat. “But I will say they make it work perfectly.”

Rodrigo, who lives in São Paolo, Brazil, when he’s not ping-ponging from city to city, is a massive star in his home country. (He’s even been nicknamed “The Brad Pitt of Brazil.”) No one in his family is an actor — dad’s an engineer, mom’s a painter, and sister’s an architect — but Santoro was always drawn to street theater, which he performed until he started acting professionally at the age of 18.

When one of his first films, “Behind the Sun,” won an award at the Venice Film Festival and then premiered in Los Angeles in 2001, Hollywood agents came calling. “I had no plans of working in [the States],” he recalls. “My life in Brazil was perfect. My career was great. I barely spoke English. I could not even put a couple of words together. Then I got approached by agents and I thought, ‘Like, in the movies? Like, Hollywood? Are you kidding me?’”

To learn English, Santoro, who has surfed his whole life, moved to San Diego for a month, hit the waves every day and took classes. His first Hollywood role, as “Young Man,” was alongside Helen Mirren in 2003’s “The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone.”

“Here I am, this dude from Brazil, having tea with Helen Mirren.”

“On the first day on set in Rome, I went to the makeup trailer at 5 a.m., and Helen Mirren was having her tea,” he recalls. “I was like, ‘Oh! I’m so sorry to bother you.’ And she was like, ‘Oh, no, please, come here. Would you like a cup of tea?’ I was shy, and my English was still very poor, and I was like, ‘No, thank you.’ She said, ‘Are you sure? This is very good tea.’ So here I am, this dude from Brazil, having tea with Helen Mirren. She didn’t need to do that. She’s the real deal. A true artist. She was a partner in bringing me in.”

Later that same year, he appeared as Karl in “Love, Actually,” and again, was anointed by Hollywood royalty who went out of their way to make the new kid feel at ease. “We did a big table read, and it was Laura Linney, Emma Thompson, Rowan Atkinson, Liam Neeson — and I was looking around, thinking, ‘What am I doing here?’ I was literally shaking. Laura grabbed my hand and said, ‘Hi, very nice to meet you. We’re gonna have a lot of fun together.’ She’s the sweetest person on the planet. She calmed me down.”

But his days of feeling like a newbie are long gone. Santoro hit the big time in 2006 as Xerxes in “300,” and cemented his star status by appearing in the megahit plane-crash drama “Lost” for seven episodes, as doomed con-man Paulo.

I wore men’s pants for a day and, frankly, women get a raw deal

Every so often, I like to conduct a fashion experiment. Like the time I thought I could be a "mum" jeans convert but ended up giving them to charity after two very unsatisfying wears.

More recently, I interviewed the designer of a popular menswear brand about women shopping across the aisle, and decided to do a little gonzo journalism by picking up a pair of tailored suit pants.

Wearing men’s pants can feel like wearing nothing at all. Credit:iStock

First, there was the store visit. The staff were expecting me, so that eliminated the, "Are you shopping for your boyfriend?" question. Then there was finding the right style to suit my petite-with-hips-and-a-bum size 8 frame.

The smallest size was a 28, a few inches larger than I wear in jeans, but to my surprise, the alterations person only needed to cinch them in about 1.5 centimetres. Of course she needed to shorten them by about six inches so I could wear them with sneakers or a modest heel.

It was the first time I wore them to work that I had a revelation. I seemingly glided from house to tram to office, feeling like I wasn't wearing pants at all. There was no "swoosh swoosh" of the fabric and the pockets – the pockets! – they were roomy enough for my Myki and my phone. And then it hit me: I realised why men appear to move through the world with more ease, and it has nothing to do with the patriarchy (OK, maybe just a little). It's because their pants are more comfortable.

I had to learn more, so I contacted tailor Julie Goodwin to ask why, when it comes to pants, are women getting such a raw deal?

"Mainstream fashion has short-changed women when it comes to all forms of tailoring … even the quality of the materials are not as good," Goodwin tells me.

There are several key areas where men's and women's pants differ and, most often, women are the losers.

Sizing: One of the most obvious points of difference is in the crotch area, to allow for men's extra … parts. "The tendency is to make the leg look longer in a ladies’ pant by making the crotch shorter but that sacrifices a little comfort," Goodwin says. "Women can be obsessed with wearing the smallest size possible but the secret to a really comfortable pant is to size up."

Fit: Women can wear their pants anywhere from the "natural waist" (think your I'm a Little Teapot tilt point) to the hip, whereas men's pants tend to fall on the "trouser waist", which is lower. Goodwin's advice to women experimenting with men's pants is to buy for your hip size and have them altered. "Women’s pants off the rack are not made to be altered," she says. "It’s a tradition that menswear is made with alterations in mind – the seam at back is easily opened and accessible. We don't do that for ladies, we make them suffer. That’s ridiculous because as women, our body shapes are more varied."

Pockets: A 2018 article in The Guardian by Chelsea Summers called out clothing manufacturers for sexism when it comes to pockets. She quoted research that found the average men's jean pocket was 23 centimetres deep, versus 14 centimetres for women. "Functioning pockets make women very excited," Summers wrote. "This is a sentence that shouldn’t need to be written in 2018. Women are busy, and we need to carry our stuff with the same ease as men do."

Goodwin says that because historically women have carried handbags, men's pants have been made with far more generous pockets, and they are often of higher quality in terms of fabric and finish. "When you're talking about the high street it’s just stinginess, it’s extra effort," Goodwin says.

So there you have it. Men's pants don't just seem better than women's pants, they very often are. And with all that extra depth in the pockets, I might even soon lose the handbag, too.

DIY mum transforms her ugly, filthy staircase for less than £50 using leftover wallpaper

A MUM who hated her ‘ugly and bleak’ staircase decided to transform it herself using leftover wallpaper – for less than £50.

Barmaid Bev Jones moved into a new home in Southampton – and hated the staircase.

Just days after the 42-year-old moved into the three-bed maisonette with her two kids, she decided the stairs had to change.

Bev turned down the £260 quote she got to fit carpets, and instead rolled her sleeves up and got stuck in to some DIY.

It took the crafty mum just two days to renovate the staircase – which she did on a £50 budget.

She shopped at budget stores like The Range, and picked up some wood stain for £6.95, carpet mats from Amazon for £30, and re-purposed some leftover rolls of wallpaper she'd bought for £7.99.

Bev borrowed a wallpaper steamer, and got her kids, son, Jenson, 16, and daughter, Summer, 8, on the task of helping her design her dream staircase – although cats, Peanut and Coco, were less helpful.

The mum-of-two said: “When we moved in the stairs were in pretty bad shape, we were literally sticking to them as we were walking up them.

“I wanted to make sure the home is nice for the kids but I haven't got a lot of money, despite working as much as I can.

"I realised you don't have to spend hundreds but you have to know where to look and if you want to make it look nice, you’ve got to put the work in.

"I work four nights per week and whenever I had a night off, I was working on the house.

“If I had a night off work, instead of watching the TV, I was working on the house."

Bev had some leftover brick wallpaper which she put to good use, admitting she was a ‘make do and mend’ type person.

Revealing how she achieved the look, she said: “I had to take the nails and staples out which took a full day and steaming them to get up all the glue and old carpet took two days.

“My hands are cut to pieces. Every time I painted the wood stain on, I had to make sure they cats were sleeping otherwise they ended up with designer paws.”

She encouraged other homeowners not to be afraid of getting stuck in themselves.

Bev said: “I do enjoy decorating. I like to do artistic stuff, so does my mum, she does all her own

“I’m a make do and mend type person, I’ll do what I can and if I can’t do something I’ll ask for help."

And this fed-up mum transformed her stairs for £25 after her landlord spent months fobbing her off.

Meanwhile this mum created a stunning glittery staircase for a fiver using B&M wrapping paper.

For more amazing home transformations, this mum created an amazing Mrs Hinch-inspired kitchen using £28 Amazon sticky wrap after being quoted £7k for a renovation.

Bride savaged for her skin-tight wedding dress which is so short you can almost see her bum

FACEBOOK users slammed a bride for her oh-so-revealing choice in wedding dress.

The not so bashful bride shared more than she bargained for when she shared snaps of her Big Day – and the internet was quick to respond.

"A friend of an ex-friend" of the bride posted two pics of the happy couple to a wedding-shaming Facebook group with their faces concealed to hide their true identity.

And group members were quick to slam the bride's choice of attire for being far too revealing.

Though she did opt for the traditional bridal white, there wasn't much else that could be described as traditional in the newlywed's dress selection.

The anonymous bride wore a long sleeved round-necked dress that on first glance seems demure until you cast your eye southwards.

You could be forgiven for thinking the designer had ran out of fabric as the dress stops abruptly just below her backside.

The miniscule garment was clearly a hit with the groom, however, who proudly and possessively cupped his hands on his newlywed's upper thigh.

But despite groom approval, online users were not such fans of the risqué design.

One observed that: "That looks like a baby's onesie, not the sexy dress it's supposed to be lol."

And another group member agreed that "It looks like a onesie that she gave up on clasping."

While others joked : "Did she lose a game of strip poker?"

And "I get that the wedding day is stressful but if you forget to wear pants and no one tells you – you have s**t friends."

Another shocked viewer remarked: "I get that you're proud of your culo [bottom in Spanish], but this is ridiculous."

Did she lose a game of strip poker?

And one seemed to like the design – as a top that is – commenting: "I have that shirt in different colours! Although I bought mine to wear with leggings."

Others were curious as to the pragmatics of the dress, asking: "How did she sit?"

Though it may not have been to everyone's taste, if the body language in the pictures is anything to go by, it was a winner for both groom and bride alike.


In other wedding news, we told you about the moment a groom's 'crazy ex' crashed his wedding in a bridal gown screaming 'it should have been me' – but all was not as it seemed.

We also showed you this woman who put her engagement ring up for sale for £5 after offering it to her ex's girlfriend for free as she "likes what's mine".

Plus this groom's "disgusting" KFC proposal which was slammed after he put the ring in a bowl of chicken and cheese.

The truth about crow’s feet and how you can avoid them

If you have a thing about doing a wrinkle spot check every now and then, you may notice a network of fine lines radiating out of the outer corner of your eyes at some point. Before you panic and start thinking about grandchildren and retirement happening in the next five minutes, stop and take a breath.

Crow’s feet may be a thing you might associate with getting older, but Dr. Brant Skincare says they can start to happen anytime — even if you’re still in your 20s. The skin around your eyes is simply more prone to wear and tear because it is thinner and it doesn’t have any oil glands — so once its elasticity is compromised, it just doesn’t snap back. 

Avoiding wear and tear isn’t as easy as it sounds either, because as New York dermatologist Joyce Davis tells Elle, crow’s feet happen naturally. “Free radical formation from sun and pollution can worsen the effects,” she said. “We also see these beneath the eyes as a result of excessive smiling, and muscle contraction. As we age, the lines get deeper and longer.” Even blinking contributes to crow’s feet, because blinking 15 to 20 times a minute adds up to about 20,000 times a day — which sounds like quite a workout (via Harper’s Bazaar).

What can you do to avoid crow's feet?

Now that we’ve established that crow’s feet are inevitable, there are things you can to do keep the skin around your eyes happy. “You want to start wearing SPF 30+ daily,” Davis said. “And if you’re near or in water or very active, make sure you’re wearing a waterproof formula. You’ll also want to start moisturizing eye creams containing proven ingredients like niacinamide, retinol and vitamin C. Ones with hyaluronic acid can also help plump skin and fill-in fine lines.” Don’t forget to take care of your facial skin overall on a regular basis as well.

Women’s Health further recommends using UV-protective sunglasses, which can block the sun’s harmful rays and keep you from squinting (squinting, of course, also causes crow’s feet).

But if the ultimate price for ageless looking skin means laughing and smiling less… we’ll support you if you give that option a hard pass. Boston-based dermatologist Ranella Hirsch said (via Allure), “More than any other wrinkle, crow’s feet are expressive. I often say, ‘Trying to emote without facial expressions is like trying to text without emojis.” And who wants to do that?
