Are people starting to look more beautiful in face masks?
Before the corona epidemic, if someone used to put a mask on the face, then it was believed that he was suffering from some disease or trying to hide any deficiency in the face, but corona has changed the psychology of people. In a survey, it was found that women rated the faces more beautiful than those who were wearing masks.
It may sound strange but Covid has also changed people’s psychology and perceptions about beauty. At least one study says so. This study took place at the School of Psychology at Cardiff University, UK. In which it was found that face masks are not only making people’s faces more attractive but also beautiful.

In this study from Cardiff University, it was said that if you wear a mask in the lower part of the face, then you look more beautiful or are judged more beautiful. However, if the mask is surgical and blue in colour, then the face looks more attractive. (Photo – ShutterStock)
Pendefik, head of the School of Psychology at Cardiff University and face expert, says that if someone used to wear a mask before Corona, then people believed that either there was a deficiency in his face or he was suffering from some disease, but now this belief is completely has changed since. The faces of people wearing blue surgical masks have started looking more beautiful or attractive. (Photo – ShutterStock)
In this study, some such pictures were given to women in which there were faces without masks and some were wearing masks. Some of the faces who wore blue surgical masks and some who had covered half of the face with a book. As a result, women found that they found those faces more attractive than those in surgical masks. (Photo – ShutterStock)
This means that after the corona epidemic, there has been a change in the psychology of the people. Now when we see someone wearing a mask, they are more familiar with their eyes and beautiful eyes start telling the beauty of the face. (Photo – ShutterStock)
This study has been published in the journal Cognitive Research: Principles and Applications. By the way, wearing a face mask is also protecting the skin. (Photo – ShutterStock)
