A Smile The Most Inexpensive Beauty Secret

Updated on July 8, 2009

A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks. ~Charles Gordy

A smile could be described as a facial expression made by flexing muscles most notably near both ends of your mouth, but a genuine smile makes its appearance on the entire face. A smile can add lift to your cheekbones and add sparkle and light to your eyes as well. It is truly the most inexpensive beauty treatment you can get.

 

 

A smile, it costs nothing, but changes everything.

A smile is one of your greatest assets.

Smile - it increases your face value. ~Author Unknown

 

A smile costs nothing but gives much.

It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give.

It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.

Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.

Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

TakeThe Smile Challenge...

When you wake up in the morning, put a smile on your face. Try not to take it off the entire day... see if your day goes better.

When you pass by a stranger on the street, simply smile at them and see if they smile back.

Smile at those with whom you do everyday, common, business transactions, for example: the bank teller, the grocery clerk, the postal worker. See if it makes a difference in the service you are given.

Smile at your family more...the results will astound you.

Smile when you are by yourself. You are wonderful and you deserve it! It is also simply good practice. See if it makes you feel better about yourself in general.

Wearing a smile is not only a beauty treatment, it is also a health treatment as well. It is actually a fun, healthy way to add longevity to your life!

Putting on a smile is a great stress reliever.  Smiling can help relieve tension and even lower your blood pressure.  A healthy period of smiling can boost your immune system.  Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins which act as natural pain killers, as well as serotonin, which causes a “feel good” feeling.  A smile enhances the muscle tone in the face adding a younger appearance to the wearer.  A smile can help with depression as well.  A smile will keep the negative feelings away.

Come on... what are you waiting for?  Put on a smile! 

If you smile at someone, they might smile back. ~Author Unknown

National Smile Month

Did you know that there is even a National Smile Month?

Created to raise the awareness of the importance of oral health care, National Smile Month for 2009 will be from May 17 to June 16.

With over 30,000 Americans diagnosed with oral cancer each year, it reminds us to take extra time to pay attention to our smiles and oral health. The important thing to remember is that 75% of those cases could be prevented and 90% are treatable when detected early. That is a really good plug for regular dentist visits, don't you think?

Not happy with your smile? Then change it for the better!
