Facial Symmetry – and why it matters!


Facial Symmetry – and why it matters!

It’s not just down to genetics…

When we think about beauty, we often hear about the age-old mantra of symmetry. Symmetry is one of the main scientific factors that contributes to the idea of beauty. It is said that when looking for a mate, we are more attracted to those with symmetrical faces.

Though most will think that facial symmetry is purely genetic, there are a lot of factors that could mean that a more asymmetrical face will develop over time.


What can cause you to develop an asymmetrical face?


Whether your face is symmetrical or asymmetrical, a lot of the time this is genetic. For example, the “Smith nose” that runs in your family or the “Jones Lips” on your mum’s side may contribute to how your face balances out!

Sun Damage

Asymmetrical faces aren’t all about your eyes, nose, ears and mouth. Features on your skin, including moles, freckles and other skin marks, can cause asymmetrical faces. Over the years, UV rays damage your skin and can cause hyperpigmentation and freckles, unbalancing your symmetry.


As we age, our skin ages with us and our faces become less symmetrical. As our cartilage continues to grow as we age, our ears and nose also grow and change. This can cause asymmetry as we get older.
