Who would have thought this? No one right? But it is so. Dimples on cheeks have a proper name in the dictionary. Gelasin is the word, which means a dimple that specifically forms on cheeks or when one smiles.

One of the most charming features of People with Dimples is that they look younger than their age. Like, Duh! Have you seen Brad Pitt!
Dimples definitely signify fitness and youth. Have you ever noticed babies have temporary dimples? No doubt they are the cutest. It is because babies have too much fat in their cheeks. That’s another reason why we relate Dimples with cuteness or youth.
6. Everyone Can Have Them!
“Dimples are now made to order!”, a newspaper in 1936 published. Dimples became so much in demand that Isabella Gilbert of Rochester, NY invented a non-surgical dimple creating device.
But we can’t say we love it. Anyone who wore it looked horrifying. One had to wear the device around one’s head, which had two knobs pressed into the cheeks on the area where dimples are to be made.
That’s how far normal people went to become People with Dimples. Such was its Craze!
