A new study suggest that face mask can make you more attractive.

Researchers at Cardiff University wanted to see if the pandemic altered perceptions of attractiveness. They asked 43 women to rate the attractiveness of male faces with and without different face masks. The results showed that faces are considered most attractive when covered by blue medical face masks. “This may be because we’re used to healthcare workers wearing blue masks and now we associate these people in carding or medical professions,” said Co-Author Dr Michael Lewis.

So Jeziel asked, do you think face masks make people more attractive? Chris thinks definitely not “I think a smile is one of the most attractive things on my wife’s face.” Another Chris said “A face mask doesn’t make someone more attractive. But a person who is willing to wear one would be more attractive over someone who isn’t willing to wear one.” Grace agrees with the study. “Something about the unknown is very attractive.” David thinks it depends on the mask. “A nice black mask yes attractive. However a bright colourful one not so much.”
