Red Skin – Africa
It’s no secret that people are usually physically attracted to those with similar skin tones. In some cultures, darker complexions are seen as more attractive, while in others, paler skin is desired. However, there is one African tribe where redder hues are considered more beautiful.
The Himba tribe in Namibia uses a mixture of red ochre and fat to help protect themselves from the harmful rays of the sun. As a result of this mixture, their skin turns red, which is considered beautiful by members of the tribe.
