What part of a woman's face do men inspect when first getting intimate? That's the question posed to 200 adult males and females between the ages of 20 and 30 in a survey carried out by Kai Corp, which makes beauty care products.
Well, the answer is that a large number of men first notice a woman's fine soft hair (lanugo). But many men also said they pretend not to notice anything.
For the survey, Kai Corp interviewed men and women in their 20s and 30s on women's facial hair and men's awareness of it.
Among women respondents, 1 in 5 said that they don’t pay much attention to their facial hair or that they hardly tend to it. Meanwhile, 40% of men answered that when getting intimate, a woman's facial hair is the first thing they noticed. However, about 40% of men said they would never remark on it to their wife, girlfriend or crush.
The survey also showed that men tend to notice the facial hair more than black pores, open pores, panda eye bags and rough lips. The same survey revealed that many women are concerned with grimy pores the most.
According to stylist Miyuki Watanabe, who runs the Nomura Marui store, which helped with the survey, "A woman's facial lanugo cycle (loss and growth) is every 20 days they say, so it is ideal to shave the lanugo every 20 days or once a month."
Dr Nomura Yuko, head of Nomura Dermatology, says that “When shaving, it is best to avoid the menstrual period, after a sunburn, and when the skin is sensitive. Outside of the bath, a razor should be kept in a sanitary place and a safe and clean razor should be used.”
So what's the big deal about all this? The problem of female facial hair is something that could ruin a potential relationship, Kai Corp concludes in its survey report. To be able to go about one's business with dazzling looks and confidence, you ought to properly tend to any unneeded facial scruff, the company advises.© Japan Today
