The Rules of Attraction

It’s an age-old question: What brings two people together? Is there a certain scent, look or behavior that immediately attracts individuals to one another? Surprisingly, researchers have found that the skin’s complexion is a big factor when rating attractiveness. Not only do people focus on the symmetry of a person’s face, but they also analyze their complexion. Studies of individuals reviewing photographs found people with red and yellowish tints to be overwhelmingly more attractive. Research shows these tints are universally more attractive because the colors subliminally signal health and abundance. In fact, research confirms females actually prefer a healthy complexion in their partner than the traditional “masculine” features.

So how does one achieve the red and yellow glow considered most desirable? It’s simple; increase your aerobic exercise, as well as your intake of fruits and vegetables. The red appearance is attributed to higher levels of red oxygenated blood in the skin (increased by exercise), while the yellow hue is associated with antioxidant carotenoid pigments (vitamins found in fruits and vegetables). For most people, it takes six weeks to see a correlation between lifestyle changes and the skin’s complexion. However, there are a few ways to speed up the process:

  • Look for fruits and vegetables rich in colors ranging from red to yellow including carrots, tomatoes, bell peppers and berries.
  • Introduce interval training to your exercise routine by alternating between high and low cardio workouts.

Consider incorporating PRIORI® Advanced AHA Cosmecueticals products into your daily  skincare routine. Advanced AHA works by improving skin health and fitness through internal moisturization of the skin (by inducing the skin to make more moisture retention compounds) and by improving skin exfoliation; this leads to “normalized” skin function, better skin health, and a more radiant complexion.

While PRIORI® can’t change the rules of attraction, we’re more than happy to help you achieve a healthier, glowing complexion!
