See I do smile… even laugh on occasion. Not too often though because it causes wrinkles @shammaurice

Well that explains it!  

Kim Kardashian's number one beauty secret was revealed via a photo shared on her Instagram account on Monday, Dec. 29. If you guessed the trick is an expensive serum, beauty mask, or lots of sleep, sorry to say, you're wrong. 

In a black and white photo with family friend Shamari Maurice, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 34, revealed that maintaining her famous poker face is what keeps her looking so beautiful. 

"See I do smile… even laugh on occasion," North West's mom spilled in the gleeful picture's caption. "Not too often though because it causes wrinkles." 

 

This explains a lot. Two weeks ago, Kardashian posted another pic where Baby Nori was cropped out, but she, of course, struck a fierce pose sans a smile or a frown in sight. After receiving criticism for the editing job, Kardashian explained why was Nori was left out of the picture. “Her eyes were closed and I was feeling my look! Can I live?!?!” Kardashian tweeted.  

 

A month ago, Kardashian shared another shot with her husband Kanye West, and the two sported matching grimaces, keeping the wrinkles at bay.
