In the past, beauty was considered to be culturally determined. Different people with unlike life experiences and cultures acquired different standards of beauty.

However, in recent years, researchers have challenged this assumption.

First, they noted that people, regardless of their culture or region largely agree on the faces they consider beautiful and which ones are not. Secondly, preference, in terms of beauty emerges early in life even before cultural standards of what is deemed to be beautiful are assimilated. Therefore, from the perspective of science, beauty is rather a biological adaptation.

Curious, right? Even if, honestly, I don’t always agree with which stars are considered beautiful. How about you?
