We all love a glass of wine, especially at Christmas - but did you know that drinking your favourite drop actually makes you PRETTIER?
That’s the finding from a research study done by the University of Bristol in the UK, which proved that having a glass of wine actually makes you more attractive to other men and women - and it’s got nothing to do with beer goggles!
As part of the study, researches showed participants three different photos of the same person. In the first photo, each person was sober; in the second photo, each person had consumed 250ml of wine; and in the last, they’d each downed 500ml of wine.
The results showed that people who’d drunk 250ml of wine - which is two and a half standard drinks in Australia - received much higher ratings than when they were completely sober. Yes!
But unfortunately for those who like a little more wine than that, those who drank 500ml of wine were deemed the less attractive. Moral of the story? Stop at two or three glasses!
The study’s researchers shared their opinions on why wine may make us prettier, suggesting the light facial flushing and ‘rosy cheeks’ brought on by alcohol could be a factor - showing others that they’re happy and healthy.
They also believe that the two glasses of wine may help relax stressed muscles and improve your overall mood, making you seem happier and more attractive.
Cheers to that!
