A Cardiff (Wales) University study published on Monday found that women may perceive men wearing face masks as more attractive.

The study, which was published in the journal Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, observed how a variety of face masks altered the attractiveness of 40 different male faces.

The researchers found that not only do coverings alter people’s perceived attractiveness but the type of covering plays a role as well, with blue medical masks ranking the highest in facial attractiveness.
