Instinctively, we all know the power of a wonderful smile. But research from the US now suggests that the British smile itself can be something to smile about.
A Psychologist has analysed US and UK smiles and the 45 facial muscles used to produce them. He found such sharp differences between the way Americans and Brits smile that researchers could spot the difference accurately over 90% of the time.
The British smile by pulling the lips back and upwards, exposing the lower teeth, whilst American part their lips and stretch the corners of their mouth. We Brits are more likely to raise our cheeks when we smile, showing our crows feet at the corners of the eyes- giving rise to a more sincere smile, which is harder to fake. The most representative British smile was considered to be restrained but dignified which scientists have titled The Prince Charles. Most US smiles by contrast are far less expressive.
So, we Brits may have a head start in the global smile league, but too often we throw our advantage away through poor oral hygiene and strained teeth.
