Good looks result of diet and exercise, not make-up

A healthy diet and exercise can contribute to good looks more than make-up or cosmetic surgery, researchers have found.

Psychologists at the University of St Andrews found that humans are very attuned to changes in skin tone which come from a healthier lifestyle.

Professor David Perrett found that an attractive face shows skin that is slightly lighter, redder and showing some yellowness.
