Betty on the News: Study Reveals Beauty is Measured By Skin Tone Not Symmetry
Your natural glow is more important than the shape of your face, who knew?
Several scientists in Germany recently conducted an experiment in which they photographed 170 women’s faces (aged from 10 to 70), applied their skin to a picture perfect computer model and quizzed 430 people on how attractive each was.
The evenness and glow of a female’s skin is now the number one thing that attracts a person to another, experts believe.
“Skin tone, especially in women, says a great deal about reproductive potential,” Dr. Bernhard Fink, an expert in evolutionary psychology at the University of Göttingen in Germany, stated. “Humans are highly evolved to pick up on cues like that because at one time in our past it would have been crucial for reproductive success.”
Fink also mentioned that the discoveries may explain how a lot of older actresses – such as Cate Blanchett and Halle Berry – continue to be so successful. (Daily Mail)
