(ORDO NEWS) — British researchers have found one positive aspect of the pandemic: people look more attractive in protective masks.
Researchers at Cardiff University say this is true for both men and women. In addition, the researchers found that a face covered with a disposable surgical mask is likely to be considered the most attractive.
Previously, some researchers believed that protective masks, on the contrary, can reduce attractiveness, as they are associated with illness.
Now scientists say that the attraction of people wearing masks may be due to the fact that we are accustomed to healthcare workers in these protective equipment, and we associate them with people involved in caring for the sick.
“At a time when we feel vulnerable, we may find wearing medical masks calming and be more positive towards the wearer,” the scientists said.
