Selfie: This is the best angle to be photographed, according to science

A doctor explains the angle of our face that is most attractive according to scientific research.

How many tries does it take you to get the best selfie? From the lighting to the camera quality, there are specific things you need to look out for to really snap the perfect pic of yourself.

As it turns out, there's actually an angle that is scientifically proven to be the most attractive part of your face and all of it is explained in a video posted on TikTok by a social-media savvy doctor.

The left side bias

The health expert in question goes by the handle LifeofaDoctor and explains that the left side of our face has been proven by science to be what is colloquially known as our 'good side.' In the video, which has since gone viral with more than 1.5 million likes, he says:

It's a phenomena known as left side bias. Basically the right side of your brain controls emotional and expression, but it also controls the left side of your face.

And added:

So the left side of your face is better in expressing emotion, which more people find aesthetically pleasing.

Also why historically 60% of portraits are painted of the left side #symmetry#beauty

Women tend to practice the left side bias more

Backing up the TikTok doctor's claims, a study conducted by researchers from Queen Mary University in London found that women, in particular, tend to register people's face with a left side bias. The study also found that women spend more time analysing people's faces more than men do.

So there you have it, next time you are feeling yourself and want to immortalise the look on social media, remember to tilt your head slightly to the left side and snap that pic.
