Only 20% of the world population has dimples. We can all agree that dimples are really adorable and desirable. Why so many people wish to have them and what do they really mean?
DIMPLES IN FACT ARE A FACIAL MUSCLE DEFORMITY
Dimples are actually a facial muscle deformity, which many cosmetic surgery patients desire to have them.
THE DIMPLE MACHINE
Isabella Gilbert must have spent a significant portion of her life distressed over her lack of dimples, because in 1936 she invented this spring-loaded contraption that promised to “make a fine set” by pressing a pair of knobs into the cheeks. This seems like a commitment you would have to take seriously, since real dimples don’t just show up for a night out on the town…
DIMPLES ARE ASSOCIATED WITH ETERNAL YOUTH
Scientist believe that these little dimples makes people look younger as they age. The reason why is this so is because dimples are generally associated with children and babies, and they makes us subconsciously look at people with dimples as though they are younger than they actually are!
MANY CULTURES CONSIDER DIMPLES TO BE A SIGN OF GOOD LUCK, AND PROSPERITY
In some cultures, dimples are a sign of prosperity and good luck. Find a friend with dimples and take him to the casino. Why not, it may turn out to be true?
SMILE – YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
You have probably noticed that more than 60% of Hollywood stars have dimples on their face and they look stunning. However, if you don’t have them, don’t worry, just keep smiling.
IT’S ALL IN THE GENES
Dimples are a genetic trait, unfortunately. So unless you want to give that dimple machine (which I wouldn’t) a go, then you are just going to have to go without I’m afraid.
BUT IF YOU DO HAVE THEM… YOU ARE MORE SEXUALLY ATTRACTIVE
Some studies point out that dimples can help people be more sexually attractive. As we can conclude, having dimples is the cutest deformity ever!
