1. Don’t say cheese – saying this will actually stretch your mouth in an unnatural way. Instead, opt for words ending with an “uh” sound (like toga)
2. Laugh to yourself – before the photo is taken chuckle to yourself to get a natural smile to your laugh.
3. Tip of your tongue behind your front teeth – this can help your lips get into a more relaxed position, but should be done without being seen
4. Relax your facial muscles – don’t make your face too tense or it will be even more unnatural.
