According to a study:
- The study showed that people of all cultures find women with high facial contrast.
- In addition,a measure of how much facial features stand out -- more youthful.
- Facial contrast refers to how much the eyes, lips and eyebrows stand out in the face.
- In terms of how light or dark they are or how colourful they are.
- While people of different ethnicities can have different skin colours, age-related changes in skin colour tend to be similar.
- To test their hypothesis, the researchers studied images of women of different ethnicities.
- Including Chinese Asian women, Latin American women, South African women and French Caucasian women.
- To avoid differences caused by gender, the study focused exclusively on women.
- The women were aged from 20 to 80, and the researchers analysed their facial images using computer software to measure various facial contrast parameters.
- The research team found that while there were some small differences,
- Several aspects of facial contrast decreased with age in all four groups of women, including contrast around the mouth and eyebrows.
- This indicates that at least some aspects of facial contrast naturally decline with age in women from around the world.
- The researchers then investigated whether people from different cultures pick up on these changes when perceiving how old someone is.
- To test this, they used photographs of women of a variety of ages, from the same four ethnic groups.
- This time, they used computer software to generate two versions of each face, one with high contrast, the other with low contrast.
- The research team invited male and female volunteers from two different cultural backgrounds, France and China, to choose the younger-looking face between the two versions of each face.
- The participants chose the high facial contrast face as the young face almost 80 per cent of the time.
- Regardless of the cultural origin of the participant or the face.
