28 Ways to Bring a Smile to Your Face (& Others) on World Smile Day

Friday, October 1, 2021

Hey Spoiled Ones! Are you a chica who wears a cute lippie under her mask? Us too! We do it because it feels good to look good, to smile, even when no one else can see it. TRUST--they can feel it and it’s catching! Pro tip: It’s also healing. Not only does it elevate our mood and relieve stress – but smiling itself is also believed to make us happier, improve sleep and extend our lifespan. Smiling is contagious, your smile can change someone else’s mood.

So why don’t we do it more? Well, between the ongoing pandemic, social distancing, wearing masks, and beginning to navigate a new world, smiles were and continue to be much harder to come by these days—but they are needed even more!

Don’t worry, we got you. October 1st is World Smile Day and we're helping you (and others) #showyoursmile via moments of joy and meaningful connection. Inspired by nature's beauty and resilience, we too are reminded that there is strength in vulnerability and the power to make big change through small acts of kindness.
