Very simply, you explain that you have Bells Palsy which is an injury to your facial nerve and that causes temporary paralysis to one side of your face. Generally people are just curious and once you explain it are understanding. Most people are not bold enough to ask outright, but try not to take it to heart if people do look, BP is an unusual condition and people are just naturally inclined to look at others who are different. Once you have made the first few journeys out it will become much easier.
