This is an interesting study about researchers who studied lots of faces
and discovered that men's skin tones tend toward a particular hue, and
women's skin tones tend toward a different hue.  

See if you can guess the hues before you click:


I would say that this result makes sense to me (I do find myself fixing
that color in men a lot), but I read the article before thinking about
it so I might be projecting.

Should they have just asked a colorist first before going to all the
trouble of doing a study? :)
