How Many Hours A Day Should You Be Resting Your Bitch Face?
Whether you’ve had a bad date ask why you’re angry, or a bitter boss tell you to just lighten up, there’s a lot of pressure to avoid the dreaded “Resting Bitch Face.” That’s just how it is. But you can’t keep up that smile all the time. The body’s not built that way. That’s why we brought in a team of professional face trainers to find out when you can let that bitch face rest. The answer may surprise you.
Take Bitch Face Mini-Breaks
Briar Calloway, from Flush Face Gyms, is a devout face rester, but he understands the worries. That’s why he recommends relaxing your face while using the bathroom, or hiding behind a potted plant. Any place you can sneak off to for five minutes. By keeping your bitch face behind closed doors, you can offset any of the unintended side effects. And by utilizing these short breaks, no one will even notice you’re missing. However, he notes that—in a bind—resting that bitch face in a business meeting can be done. Just tell Gary to mind his own fucking business when he asks what’s wrong.
Do What Feels Natural
There’s no hard and fast rule when it comes to bitch face breaks. For instance, some people can relax for hours at a time, with only minimal amounts of scorn from friends and family. Others will cause a scene the minute they let their cheeks chill. A good rule of thumb is to shave one minute off your rest for every, “Why the long face?” comment you elicit.
Overtraining can be its own issue, leaving your face muscles exhausted and your fake pleasant smile looking more like a judgy smirk. And that, unfortunately, can be just as bad as RBF. While the symptoms of overtraining are unique for each person, here are a few to look out for:
- Not getting that promotion
- Your mother mentioning it might be time to settle
- Random men screaming at you as you walk by
There’s No Magic Bullet
We all want faces that can just look however they actually look, but that’s just not realistic for women in our society. As Corey Craig from Perfect Puss Training told us, “People—especially men—will never feel comfortable with a woman who doesn’t look not just neutral, but actively grateful to be there. Yes, even in a completely mundane or even serious life situation where in which smiling isn’t even technically appropriate.” The good news is you can definitely work towards hiding that Resting Bitch Face behind a mask of conformity in order to make other people happy.
And that’s really what it’s all about, isn’t it?
