4 Reasons Why a Smile is the Best Accessory!

{Collaborative Content} You may have a favourite handbag or piece of jewellery that makes a regular style appearance. Still, there is one accessory often overlooked that is a permanent fixture in your overall look, and that’s a bright white smile.

Ok so fashion models per se aren’t known for their dazzling smiles on the catwalk but fashion, in general, is made to make us feel good about ourselves and confident in our own skin. Smiling complements your whole look and makes you feel great on the inside out.

One such fashion A-lister known for a rare grimace is former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham. Having once said in a video interview with Vogue US, the reason she doesn’t smile is “I feel I have a responsibility to the fashion community”, of course also sparked the conversation regarding her own insecurities with her teeth during her youth. Of course, Mrs Beckham went on to change the appearance of her smile with cosmetic dentistry but has previously given a cheeky nod to the question she hates being asked with her ‘Fashion Stole My Smile T-Shirt’ for her pre-AW17 collection.

So unless like this infamous Spice Girl, you like smiling on the inside. Take a look at the ways to get the most out of the style accessory that never goes out of fashion.

It boosts your confidence

Much like if you don’t feel happy about your hair or skin, your teeth can have the same effect on your confidence. Even if people say they can’t notice anything when you smile, if you don’t feel happy about unaligned teeth or discolouration, you’ll feel self-conscious about them. Feeling good about your teeth naturally boosts your confidence. It makes you smile more, and you don’t give them a second thought when chatting to people. If you’re not comfortable with the look or feel of your teeth, considering cosmetic dentistry or dental implants can give you the option of healthier teeth and a more confident outlook.

It’s good for your health

Smiling isn’t only a great accessory; it’s good for your health too. Studies have said that smiling activates neural messaging to your brain that boosts happiness and health. Just a simple smile can release chemicals such as endorphin, dopamine and serotonin that has lots of benefits for the body such as lowering blood pressure and heart rate. Smiling is also said to improve your immune system because you are more relaxed.

It’s a natural anti-ageing technique

Forget creams lotions to fight the wrinkles, just smile instead. It’s a common myth that smiling causes wrinkles in the first place when, in fact, they use muscles in the face to lift it and make you look younger. Basically a natural facelift!

It boosts positivity

Smiling sends good signals to the brain, and this helps you to feel more positive. Even when you might feel a bit down, it can also release natural chemicals that elevate your mood, and in some cases help relieve pain.

Smiling not only makes you look happy and attractive, but it’s also good for your health too. So what are you waiting for!
