    Is it purely genetics, or does nutrition also play a role?

    All of you know the look, broad chin, thick eyebrows, straight hair(usually) etc.

    All of them look similar. I'm thinking this has to do a high level of androgens in puberty? Any theories on how facial development like this is achieved? I've noticed almost all of them have impeccable hair, eyebrows and teeth as well.

    At the moment I can think of 3 theories:

    1)Genetics, good looking parents
    2)Good nutrition
    3)High social standing in puberty increasing androgens

    Anybody else?

    This guy seems really delusional to me, I used to see my male friends very often even during puberty and their faces did not change whatsoever day to day. I have never noticed anyone's facial bones changing in a short term period. This is simply not possible.

    I'm talking about development that mostly takes place in puberty.

    Probably a good idea to get your logic in check before embarrassing yourself any further with comments like this.

    Best of luck to you!:cool:

    Not to take a side on this. But. My face changed shape, twice since peat eating, to a more square, planed, shape that is much nicer to look at or take a picture of. The first time it changed to this, was like 4 months ago, and it lasted two months or so. It was really nice. Then it changed back to more like a circle, smaller than the other shape, and there its been except for one day last week. And that day, i have a picture of my face shape, and my fiance said out of the blue, "Somethings changed about your face!!" He was really intrigued.
    So it can happen.

    Faces do change throughout the entire lifespan. Good nutrition and a healthy body is going to be more attractive and robust than a malnourished one. Regardless of genetics. Life isn't so reductionist as we often wish it would be; it's likely a combination of hormonal status, metabolism, genetics, development, nutrition and perhaps even more to be elucidated...

    I saw a post here by Haidut a while ago on bioelectrics, how they were getting worms to grow extra heads and stuff, and it intrigued me, how it controls the shape and form of organisms. I ended up emailing the author of the studies, he said it'd most likely be possible to alter facial structures of adults through bioelectrics, though probably a big event and painful.

    That would be a fair guess except i have lost facial fat before, once i lost quite a bit, but this is not the same look.

    I think it's also related to high androgens in puberty. But how did they achieve the high androgen levels?

    It's obviously a combination of genetic, and environmental factors. For example I can change my diet, exercise, ect. And i may experience increased muscle mass, hair growth ect. But as of now our genetics impose limitations on us we cannot overcome. For example I cannot make dietary or lifestyle changes to develope black skin, or grow a foot in height. We have limitations imposed on us by our genetics. Fact of life

    Something I'm gonna throw in here just because I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere else in regards to achieving a "handsome look": your thoughts. The face reflects more than anything else (except maybe the eyes) a person's thoughts/attitudes/feelings, etc. Learning how to CONCENTRATE on a subject you love and consistently choosing thoughts of confidence and strength will eventual lend a shine and aura to your face and eyes that is impossible to achieve otherwise. This may take a few months to a few years to happen, but it will happen.
