Beauty is the eye of the beholder. Is that really the case?
As our population grows, the gene pool for skin color widens.
A study has shown that those people who have more blood and more oxygen content have healthier skin. That affects skin color. Skin that is slightly flushed with oxygen-rich blood suggests a strong heart and lungs. Smokers, diabetics, or those with heart disease have fewer blood vessels in their skin, and so the skin would appear less rosy.
The more fruit and vegetables we have in our diet, the more golden or yellow-toned the skin. This skin color might be explained by the ‘carotenoid pigments’ from the fruit and vegetables.
Melanin, the pigment that causes the tan color when the skin is exposed to the sun; turning the skin darker and more yellow.
Missouri School of Journalism Study
African-American were ridiculed for trying to lighten their skin color. However, many Caucasians go to tanning salons to darken their skin. A really direct contrast.
In a study from the Missouri School of Journalism, researcher Cynthia Frisby found that people perceive a light brown skin tone to be more physically attractive than a pale or dark skin tone.
79 female participants were to evaluate a selection of photographs, which they believed were for an upcoming advertising campaign. Frisby discovered that participants, of whom 45 were Caucasian and 34 were African American, found the light brown skin tone most attractive.
Attraction from an evolutionary stand point
Since the 1990s, evolutionary psychologists have theorized that attractiveness and health judgments serve as a mechanism for identifying a healthy, fertile mate.
Facial skin color has been shown to influence perceived attractiveness and health. The redder, and yellowish, the more is it perceived as healthier. The skin redness may be related to increased blood oxygenation which serves as an indicator for aerobic fitness and fertility. Skin luminance is determined by the concentration of melanin that is associated with the synthesis of Vitamin D.
Skin color and financial capacity
Before the industrial revolution, those who have lighter pale skin are wealthy. They do not need to spend many hours under the sun for labor. In contrast to now, the lighter pale skin people are those who spend their time in enclosed walls working.
Those who can afford to spend money going to tropicals locations, thus having tanned skin.
The color or attraction
Based on the facts above, it is evident that those with redder, yellowish skin are healthier. To ensure the continuance of species, evolution has us pick healthier and stable partners. Healthier means longer life. Stability means the capacity to provide food, clothing, and shelter.
A golden brown skin is a sign of good health and financial stability.
