One of the secrets to Jennifer Lopez’s youthful looks is her heart-shaped face.

Researchers at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst have been studying the evolution of wrinkles in a recent dermatological study, and have published several papers in the current issue of Physical Review Letters about their findings.
