Eye on Beauty

Beauty is said to be in the eye of the beholder, but it turns out a person’s eyes determines whether someone finds them attractive or not.

Research published in Ethology finds that people with bloodshot eyes are considered sadder, unhealthier and less attractive than people whose eye whites are untinted.

So what does this mean?  Well, for one thing, it’s apparently the first time eye redness has been viewed as an indicator of emotion.  Also…like opposable thumbs…this tendency is apparently unique to humans.

This is bad news during allergy season.  Also if you tend to overwear your contacts.  Thank goodness for eye drops!  However, I wouldn’t be surprised, if eye drop companies rebrand their products as beauty aids.
