A WOMAN has revealed her best-kept secret for keeping wrinkles at bay,and all you need is this £1 item.
Kat James shared the secret on her TikTok account, shinebeautymalibu, where it has been viewed over one million times.
Kat, who is is almost 50, has virtually no wrinkles or fine lines on her face and is often mistaken for looking a lot younger than she is.
She said she started this anti-aging technique in her early twenties.
To keep wrinkles at bay all you need is a roll of sellotape, which you can purchase from almost anywhere for as little as £1.
Kat recommends starting this process in your early twenties but says it can help decrease lines becoming deeper and explained how the process worked.
She said: "In the beauty world we like to use the terms involuntary movement and voluntary movement, meaning you can voluntary move your eyebrows and make expressions but that often we involuntary do it.
"You have no idea how often you do this in a day and all those involuntary movements cause lines and wrinkles that you will have for the rest of your life.
"I was introduced to something called tape training."

Kat, a trained esthetician, and skincare expert added she was taught the technique by skincare expert Dr. Brant and has been practicing it ever since.
Now, Kat said she hardly ever moves her brows and showed users how to start tape training too.
First, take four pieces of tape and cut them to around two inches in length each.
To begin, make sure your face is freshly washed and dried, then the first piece of tape goes directly in the middle of your eyebrows.
Next, put apiece of tape above each eyebrow horizontally and the last piece of tape should go across the top of your forehead horizontally.
Kat said it works because if you do make involuntary movements the tape will begin to make noise and you will force yourself to stop making expressions.
Over time, this will help you control your facial expressions and prevent wrinkles and fine lines in the long run.
Some users said they had also used the technique and saw a difference in their skin.
"This works. I’ve been doing this for over 20 years. My mom did too. I’m 63 with few wrinkles." Wrote one woman.
Another exclaimed: "My mom put that tape on my forehead since I was 15 years old. she said express your emotions with eyes, I'm 40 and still don't have lines."
Whilst some users thought the technique was genius, there were many people saying they would rather get a few wrinkles than stop showing emotion.
"I would never trade not expressing emotion for no wrinkles." Wrote one user.
Another user explained: "I like looking in the mirror and seeing the history of emotions I've had in lines, the life I've led, and the happiness I've freely felt. it's art."
A third user commented: "Women now should worry about getting wrinkles from being expressive? The beauty industry is killing me."
