Regional Perceptions Of Male Beauty Around The World

8

Perceptions of beauty change over time, but they are also subject to regional preference and perceptions. To demonstrate this, a UK-based online medical platform asked a group of graphic designers coming from different countries to Photoshop one picture based on their local beauty standards. The idea behind the experiment was to show what is considered a handsome man in different corners of the world.

After a study in the UK showed up to 40% of men feel pressured by media to have what is considered “the perfect body”, it is becoming increasingly clear women are not in this alone anymore. Check out how different parts of the world look at male attractiveness.
