Men's Beauty Standards From Around The World

April 16, 2015 1 min read

Women constantly get bombarded with images of what the "ideal" body type is. However, far too often we think of beauty standards as something only women are being held to. What about the men? If we really take a moment to look around, we'll see that not only women but men are also being held to an unrealistic standard. Just a couple little facts:
  •  2012 and 2014 the number of beauty products for men increased by 70 percent worldwide and in 2013 alone, that global industry was raking in $3.3 billion.
  •   last years “hottest” male celebrities were Chris Evans, Channing Tatum, and Chris Pratt; all of whom are fairly masculine men - a physique that many men struggle to achieve
  • In 2014, the U.S. alone dropped $4.1 billion on men’s personal products (and since the whole "lumber sexual" beard trend is in, we know that wasn’t just on razors or aftershave)
  While we may not be able to stop the media from shoving these ideals down our throat, we can definitely take a second to recognize and educate ourselves on just how unrealistic this is. An international cast of gorgeous male models shows us just how drastically the physical attributes of the "ideal man" vary across 12 different countries. Watch below. Video courtesy of Buzzfeed
