Guys, what’s the number one feature that women find most attractive? It’s not a handsome face, or a six-pack of abs - it’s a tan body. That’s the finding of a new study.
British researchers had women rate the attractiveness of photographs of men of all shapes and sizes with complexions that ranged from pale - to dark tan.
The result? Men with tans were rated as the most attractive, no matter how handsome or fit they were.
So, why do women love a golden glow? Lead researcher Dr. Ian Stephen says that women are hardwired to look for a healthy mate, and think that tan skin tone is a sure sign of top health and strength.
But guys, this doesn’t mean you want to lie in the sun, or go overboard with the self-tanner. There’s a fine line between looking healthy, and looking like an orange castmember from “Jersey Shore.”
Instead, the safest way to brighten your skin is by eating fruits and vegetables that contain carotenoids, which increase the amount of goldenness in your skin - ike carrots, sweet potatoes, and spinach. Studies show that you can see a natural glow within days of going on a carotenoid binge.
