Types of Beauty
It is said that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder, but I’ve always believed there are certain things about ourselves that are objectively beautiful. Some think it’s your smile or your hair, others may find beauty in your eyes.
What I find to be true about all these points is that they’re truly subjective, based on one’s personal taste. However, I believe that there are some parts of the human body that are undeniably beautiful, even if you’re not particularly attracted to them.
I’m certain everyone has their own list for this but I’d like to share mine with you. You might find these surprising because they don’t necessarily fall into our usual idea of beauty. However, you will notice that they share two very important qualities: symmetry and proportion. The human body is a work of art when it’s in perfect proportion and closely resembles what we might consider ideal.

1. The Eye:
One thing that makes humans special is our eyes, something that can’t be said about our closest relatives: chimpanzees and other apes. This sense organ is so complex that it makes us capable of a whole range of emotions and expressions.
To prove this point, there’s a video on YouTube that juxtaposes photos of eyes from different animals arranged in ascending order according to the complexity of the eye.
The human eye is also very special because it’s horizontally symmetrical, meaning it is mostly symmetrical from left to right. We have a slight exception in our noses, but they are barely visible to the naked eye. This symmetry makes us more attractive as well as interesting creatures since we don’t look completely identical on both sides of our faces.

The iris is the colored ring that surrounds our pupils and can be found in different colors; its function is to limit how much light enters the eye. People with blue eyes have a very thin ring of pigment while those with dark brown eyes have a wider one.
It’s also interesting to note that people with two different color eyes are often capable of seeing better in low light conditions. I have discovered that my own blue eyes adjust faster to changes in light, allowing me to see better when coming out from a dark room into the sunlight.
