Everyone has different tastes. This also applies to the standards of male beauty. Since 2012, venerable trendsetters have started talking seriously about the returned popularity of the beard. And Australian researchers decided to poll women about why they like overgrown men so much?
So, male volunteers, with and without facial hair, were subjected to severe tests of heat, wind and cold. As a result, as we can guess, the skin covered by the beard is much better preserved. She was not dehydrated and weathered.
In addition, scientists have reported good news for allergy sufferers: it turns out that the beard retains part of the dust and pollen, being a kind of filter.
When psychologists got down to business, they decided to compare the scientific data of their colleagues with the opinion of ordinary women. And it turned out that almost 85% of them said that a man's beard is associated with some kind of true masculine principle: a strong, healthy, hardy earner.
It turns out that science is confirmed by perception. And women who prefer bearded men subconsciously choose healthy "males" for the possibility of procreation. After all, among other things, men with well-developed hair, as a rule, have a lot of male hormones, which also helps them to be enviable suitors, and later - fathers.
