Hang on to Your Masks…Apparently They Make People More Attractive

Researchers say it's possible this is because masks direct more attention to people's eyes.

There is a benefit to masks…they make people sexier! Researchers at one university found that both men and women are perceived to look better with a face covering…and that’s not because of all the designer face masks. The people in the study were asked to rate the attractiveness of faces that included ones without a mask, with a plain cloth, with a blue one and black covering the lower part of their face. The study found that a face covered with a disposable surgical mask was the most appealing, followed by a cloth one.
