Bitchy Resting Face

Do you have Bitchy Resting Face?

Do you find yourself being approached by strangers on the bus asking if there's anything wrong? Or perhaps they feel the need to utter that dreaded sentence 'cheer up love, it might never happen'. If that's the case, then perhaps you suffer from Bitchy Resting Face (BRF).

If you're more than a little confused, allow us to explain. It’s basically an expression (or rather a non-expression), that makes people think you’re in a bad mood, when actually you’re not. In fact, you’re probably not thinking about a lot, to be honest. If anything, it's about how much you want to eat a giant bowl of Cheerios when you get in from work (just us?).

Whatever it is, your 'resting' face puts others off, makes people worry and annoys pretty much everyone involved. And so the term BRF was born. Or rather, as it’s probably better known in the UK, a face that looks a bit ‘arsey’ all the time, just because you don't appear to have a coat hanger in your mouth 24/7.

Thankfully, some kindly folks in the States decided enough was enough and created a spoof public service announcement for the many who suffer from the condition, which has already garnered over 2.5 million hits on YouTube.

Even on the Today programme in the US, plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony Youn, confirmed that this was actually a real condition (see video below).

He said: “As we age, some of us – myself included – find that the corners of our mouths droop, giving us a grumpy look. This is usually present with a resting face. One procedure I perform in the grin lift, used to turn a permanent frown upside down.”
