‘I wish I had dimples’ is a statement made by many people. Such people will do anything to get them and since it is not possible to get permanent dimples naturally, there are surgeries one can undergo and to those who fear going under the knife, I got your back. The following exercises will encourage temporary dimples.

1. Smile

This is the easiest way on how to get dimples naturally. You need to smile wide and keep your smile stunned because natural dimples tend to show up most when a person genuinely smiles widely.

2. Suck up your cheeks

Pull in the cheeks and keep it for a few seconds before relaxing. You need a mirror to look at to make sure that you are doing right by creating hollow cheeks. Repeat this for ten minutes each time and several times daily until you get your lovely dimples.

3. Use a stick-like object to create a hollow

By stick-like I mean something that looks like a stick e.g. a pencil or a pen or blunt rod. Use the back part of a pen or a pencil to press the cheeks at regular intervals. This makes the cheeks hollow and repeating this exercise daily will leave you with nothing but pretty dimples.

4. Use make up

Dab a bronzer or brown eye shadow to the spot where you want your dimple to appear. Smudge it with your fingers till it completely blends onto your skin, creating a shadow effect. Pick your phone and click a selfie to see whether the illusion has worked

5. Use your fingers to press

Look into the mirror and press your cheeks using your fingers. Continue pressing on the spot where you want your dimples for five minutes but don’t do it in a rough manner that would end up injuring your cheeks. Release and smile and again press on the spot. Repeat this exercise for twenty minutes a day till you get your satisfactory result. 

There you go! try these exercises daily and thank me later.
