It’s Official: You’re At Your Most Handsome After One Drink

Because science says so

It turns out that the optimum drunkenness for a gentleman looking to meet members of the fairer sex is just one drink.

It may seem slightly lightweight, but a study conducted by the Alcohol and Alcoholism journal has proven this to be when others judge your face to be at its most attractive.

A sober group of participants then judged the photographs and decided the one-drink face was the most attractive. Scientists think this could have something to do with wine prompting pupil dilation, muscle relaxation and giving you redder cheeks - all deemed to be more attractive features.

The second most attractive face was sober, followed by two-drinks deep.

Strange that the British classic 'nine pints and a kebab' face did not feature higher up.
