Believe it or not,females likes redness in facial skin of males.
Every body knows that the colour red symbolizes aggressiveness.A report by ANI said that researchers from the University of Nottingham, who carried out a study found that women liked men who exhibited redness in the form of aggressiveness was liked by women.
“We have shown that increased redness enhances the appearance of dominance, aggression and attractiveness in men’s faces viewed by women,” the Independent quoted the researchers as saying.
The ANI report added:”As the face gets redder it is increasingly seen as a sign of dominance – the colour is associated with testosterone, health and, in extreme cases, anger.One theory is that a male face which is red but not too furious-looking is attractive to women because it is interpreted as an indication of good health.Indeed, a slight increase in redness caused by oxygenated blood perfusion is a marker of fitness.”
But the same ANI report quoting the researchers said:”it can go too far. Most women are likely to be turned off by too much ruddiness…The differences may reflect a trade-off between the benefits to females of choosing a healthy, dominant male and the costs of associating with an aggressive partner,” researchers said.
In fact,Samantha Mann, research fellow and psychologist at the University of Portsmouth,who commented on the findings of the new study,sad:”Red is often a colour of danger. A red face indicates physical or emotional exertion, and may be caused by factors such as intense anger, physical activity or alcohol consumption,” ANI report quoting Mann said.
