How do you think your face will look 10 years from now?
Lifestyle choices such as the amount we drink, smoke or sit in the sun will inevitably have an impact on the outcome - and thankfully we have the power to control those factors.
But what about our genetic predisposition to ageing? According to scientists, one genetic indicator is the shape of your face. Whether yours is round, heart-shaped, oval or square, research suggests that your face shape affects the way your complexion changes with age.
Those with round faces, like Kate Winslett, for instance, are more likely to lose the plumpness in their cheeks while those with square jawlines like Michelle Williams are prone to sagging jowls.
But while no amount of cosmetic surgery can affect the bone structure you were born with, it is possible to target your 'weak spots' by doing regular facial exercises to tone your muscles.
Identify your face shape below to find out which exercises will help to prevent the signs of ageing.
