How Stress Affects Men's Attractiveness

stress cortisol attractiveness

Women can judge a man’s ability to keep his calm in tense situations just by looking at him. Surprisingly it’s not all about the testosterone. The secret lies in a good balance between testosterone and cortisol. According to a study conducted by the Abertay University in Dundee this biochemical balance shows in your face.

Men who have lesser testosterone combined with lesser cortisol are perceived as the most attractive. Still attractive are those who have high levels of both testosterone and cortisol. Least favorable is an imbalance of both levels, no matter which one is higher.

In order to appeal to women the gym might not longer be enough.  It’s also about keeping your cool, appearing confident and in balance.
