Our happy hour fact to amaze your drinking buddies with.
The faces of mothers and daughters wrinkle in almost exactly the same pattern.
In the first definitive proof of the old "if you want to know what a woman will look like when she's older, then look at her mother" axiom, researchers used state of the art imaging software and 3D modeling
to examine the faces of mother and daughter pairs between the ages of 15 and 90.
They found that aging in certain parts of the face -- in particular the wrinkles and crow's feet that form around the eyes -- were nearly identical between the generations. The similarities start to become apparent when a daughter reaches her 30s.
In other words, mothers and their adult daughters should look into two-for-one botox treatments in order to avoid exposing each other.
