Chewing gum not only improves your social appearance, but could make you more beautiful overtime.
Interesting Ad by chewing gum company, Beldent, which showed that 73% of the people preferred the twin that were chewing gum over the one that wasn’t.
The ad’s intent is to dispel the myth that chewing gum gives a bad impression.
Interestingly people picked ones chewing gum as being more of the cool, outgoing, easy going type of personality.
Chewing might make the face look more active because of the muscles moving which may be the cause of this perception, however is there a deeper truth to chewing gum and its effect on the human face?
People thought the following about the one on the right, chewing gum
One of the left is simply sitting still, without chewing gum.
The one chewing gum seemed like…
Has more friends
Gets invited to more parties
More likely to give you a raise
Has a better sex life
It is interesting to see how the motions of chewing improves the face, and makes the face look more outgoing. While the still face looks less lively and more introvert.
Possibly because chewing moves the face muscles up and down causing the lips to appear like a smile at times.
However is there a deeper truth to this?
Studies have found that people with horizontal jaws have stronger muscle tone.
People who’s face are wider have stronger muscle tone. (The distance between the eyes was wider)
stronger muscle tone = it means the person does more chewing
Cheekbones are known to develop according to the stress of chewing.
Lower jaw becomes wider on individuals that chew more.
Modern condition of teeth crowding and impacted wisdom teeth is caused by lack of chewing because of our modern soft diet.
Chewing more ensures the child grows up more attractive.
It is certainly interesting how these individuals chewing more were viewed as extroverts, & coincidentally people that chew more develop faces that become more extroverts.
It is possible that the act of chewing temporary makes the face appear more attractive because the muscles bulge out and it is the muscles that is defining a good face.
We know bones remodel according to stress, use, and long term forces by our facial muscles.
It is possible then that the more we chew and activate those muscles, the more our facial bones adapt to those stresses and become sculpted by the muscles over time, increasing the facial beauty.
I recently had a conversation with orthodontist about this, Dr. Mike Mew who has told me the positive effects of chewing on the face.
I have been diligently chewing tough gum everyday since 4 months ago and I have already seen some of these effects to the face. Particularly making the lower jaw and cheekbones more defined.
So I knew chewing gum had positive impact on the face over time, but until this commercial I never realized that the act of chewing itself makes the face look better temporarily.
This might explain why I am seeing more positive responses from my colleagues and my boss as of late at work because I have been chewing gum all the time at the office.
Along with the positive facial changes that comes from chewing gum, the fact that it improves your appearance while you chew to other people is a cool plus.
Happy chewing everybody!
