The zygomatics major is a muscle of the human body. It is a muscle of facial expression
which draws the angle of the mouth superiorly and posteriorly to allow one to smile. Like
all muscles of facial expression, the zygomatic major is innervated by the facial nerve.
The Zygomatics extends from each zygomatic arch (cheekbone) to the corners of the
mouth. It raises the corners of the mouth when a person smiles. Usually a single unit,
dimples are caused by variations in form. It is thought that dimples are caused by bifid
zygomaticus major muscle.
Does it take more muscles to smile or to frown?
Some claim that it takes 43 muscles to frown and 17 to smile while others says it takes 26
to smile and 62 to frown. And some naysayers claim it is the opposite. Dont get into the
rigmarole of the number of muscles. SMILE, SMILE, SMILE.......Smile is the best exercise.
It increases your face value.
And with a big Smile and a bigger thanks to all my readers , I draw curtains on the finale
of A to Z challenge. I was not sure of signing up for the Challenge in the first place.
Seeing the number of co-bloggers sign up with their various interesting themes, I had
second thoughts. But I dived and signed up . After signing up, I was not sure to reach the
finishing line and now I did it. A big thanks once again, readers.
