Friday is Smile Day

World Smile Day

When you think of a SMILE you generally think of teeth....and yes our teeth are important in a smile....

But so is our face....
Although the exact number of muscles used to smile or frown are debatable, the fact that we use more to frown than we do to smile is not.

According to our sagacious and very knowing friends at  Wikipedia,  our smile types have been researched.
In the mid 19th century, a French neurologist Guillaume Duchenne discovered that there are two distinct smiles.
Named after the discoverer the Duchenne smiles are one that uses both the zygomatic major muscle and the orbicularis oculi muscle.  The zygomatic muscle is used to raise the corners of our mouths, and the orbicularis oculi muscle is used to raise the cheeks and to form our crows feet found around our eyes.
Researchers suggest that having a Duchenne smile is  a unique indicator of positive emotions.
A non- Duchenne smile commonly know as the "Botox smile" is known as a fake smile, involving only the zygomatic major muscle.
This smile is used to show politeness and was original known as the Pan Am smile after the Pan Am flight attendants who would flash jet-setters the polite smile.

Even though, we know that crows feet are a sign of positive emotion among many other things, many of us do not appreciate their presence, and desperately want to rid our faces of them.

So how can we do that?

A rejuvenating skin care regime that can consist of a preventative eye cream is a great place to start.
Laser treatments are also another method of use for reducing crows feet. 

At Pür Spa, we can offer both methods.

  1. I was looking for the best trampoline on the internet and I found a good place with the best guidance.

  2. Yet this attitude may be more damaging than helpful, especially in today's increasingly computer-oriented society.
