People choose eyes as the most beautiful part of the face
A simple look is more than enough for a person to fall in love. According to one study, men and women classify a person's eyes as the most important feature when looking for a potential partner. However, having attractive hair and lips are also important factors. The psychologist Daniel Gill, who led the study at the University of Winchester in the United States, looked at how people judged the facial features of various individuals. Using color photographs, 32 women and 32 men were invited to evaluate female and male faces, giving ratings to individual characteristics such as eyes, lips, hair, nose, or the entire face. As a result, none of the faces had makeup, jewelry, glasses, earrings or beards.
According to the results, men who observe a female face attach more importance to the eyes and hair, giving less importance to the nose and lips. The same thing happened when women looked at a male face, evaluating their eyes and hair as more important features, their nose and lips being more uninteresting.
In another part of the research individuals should look at people of the same sex. Women who looked at a female face said that their eyes and hair were more relevant, the nose was less important. Meanwhile, the men who judged the male faces revealed that the eyes and hair were the most important, but the lips and nose were less striking. "In human social interaction, the beauty of the face has important consequences for individuals and groups.The beauty of the opposite sex is a proposal to reflect, at least in part, the partner's appropriate choice for reproduction.Therefore, men and women are expected to have different strategies for beauty assessment, "commented researcher Daniel Gill.
Researchers have found that facial beauty plays a crucial role in social interactions, particularly in reproduction. He said the importance of different facial features could be explained by evolutionary pressures that led to the idea of beautiful or non-beautiful facial attributes in genders. "The importance and preference found are not surprising. characteristics caused by different levels of testosterone and, therefore, different signs of biological fitness, "he said.
The findings of the study were published in the 'Science Journal Evolution and Human Behavior'.
The cosmetics market is focusing on male behavior, because now they also take care of skin, hair, nails and even the body. The cosmetics developed specifically for masculine (thicker, more cornified) skin obey this physiology of the skin itself. Likewise, the man's skin is more oily, irritable and often traumatized by the act of shaving.
Although skin cancer is the most frequent type, accounting for about 25% of all malignancies registered in Brazil, according to information from the National Cancer Institute (Inca), when detected early has high percentages of cure. The disease is more common in individuals over 40 years of age, being relatively rare in children and blacks, with the exception of those with previous skin diseases.
