Beauty is Indeed Skin Deep - Research
Using a revolutionary imaging process, a new study is revealing that wrinkles aren't the only cue the human eye looks for to evaluate age. Scientists at the Ludwig-Boltzmann-Institute for Urban Ethology, Austria and the Department for Sociobiology/Anthropology at the University of Goettingen, Germany have shown that facial skin color distribution, or tone, can add, or subtract, as much as 20 years to a woman's age. The study used 3-D imaging and morphing software technologies to remove wrinkles and bone structure from the equation to determine the true impact of facial skin color distribution on the perception of a woman's age, health and attractiveness and is currently in the edit acceptance process with the journal Evolution and Human Behavior.
