Charlie Chaplin has rightly said ‘I have many problems in life. But my lips don’t know that. They always smile.’
Smile is a facial expression primarily by flexing the muscles at the sides of mouth. It is a form of silent communication. Smile can be happy or sad.
Dimple smile is one of the cutest smile though dimples may be present naturally or it can be created by surgery. Anatomically, dimples are created by variations in the structure of the facial muscle known as Zygomaticus Major. If it is double or Bifid, then it explains the cheek smile. Well dimples are actually a defect that makes people look beautiful when they smile.
Duchenne smile includes contractions of cheek muscle as well as the muscles on the sides of the eye. It is described as smiling in the eyes.
A non Duchenne smile involves only the cheek muscle and not the eye muscle.
A lot of people give fake smile, it is called ‘Botox smile’ in which smile is forced by voluntarily contracting the cheek muscle.
Why smiling makes us happy?
The facial muscles are activated when we smile and so the biochemicals released in those areas are also altered leading to the temperature change. The research suggests that cooler brain creates good emotions, while a warmer brain produces negative emotions. Smiling in pain does not mean the pain goes away, it just can tip you in the direction of positive feeling.
So SMILE, is speak more in less energy.
