Moles get a bum rap. Sarah Jessica Parker and Enrique Iglesias removed theirs. Our British friend calls them "ugly marks" rather than beauty marks.

But it turns out that an "ugly mark" may be a sign of beauty. Scientists say men and women with more than 100 beauty marks appear to have fewer wrinkles, helping them look up to seven years younger than their age, the Daily Mail reports.

Supermodel Cindy Crawford is 44 (you'd never guess it) and famous for her above-the-lip mole and Marilyn Monroe was also famous for hers.



Is this theory making sense yet?

Men and women with more than 100 beauty spots also have tougher bones than normal, making them less likely to develop osteoporosis. Other suspected benefits include tauter muscles and a healthier heart and eyes, the Mail reports.

On the flip side, moles are also linked to skin cancer, as the marks can develop into malignant melanoma following overexposure to sunlight.

Oh well -- short of a cosmetic procedure, there's not much you can do about your moles. So you might as well enjoy looking younger than your friends!

It depends on the person, size of the mole, and location.
If it's a tiny above the lip one on a decently attractive person fine.
If it's a huge hairy one...not so much. D:

It would depend on how the mole looks.Most of them have long velvety fur, a long muzzle and very small eyes.They have very long claws to burrow in the ground.They can be fun at parties.

to clarify further I would say some people don't look bad with moles and sometimes it can even be cute...depending on the circumstance...but someone with a mole definitely is not better looking than someone without

I have a mole. It's on the right side of my chin, medium side, and grows hair. My face is fairly pretty, and think the mole is cute until the see it has hair.. Course my family thinks its cute cause well they're family, but when I was in elementary kids, mostly boys, would tease me about and say if I had something stuck on my face, which would usually make me blush in embarrassment. I guess what I'm saying is when u do see someone with a mole no matter what u think its better to stay quite and not try no to stare at it!!! You might not realize it since u might not have one but some can be not the confident with how they look. I should know since I was like that and covered it up with my hand so no one would stare, even till this day I do it unconsciously. So undecided because when I was little I thought it was a beautiful beauty mark and not so much now.... Anyway main fact here!!!!! Think how it'll be to be in their shoes, and having disgusting options thrown at them!! Be nice!!

I am a brunette woman and have one of those 'Cindy Crawford' moles above my lip. I never paid much attention to it, but people would often comment on it or compliment me on it as I was growing up. It is a bit annoying when I get asked if it's real, but that doesn't happen often. It's funny when I encounter other people with the same. They are like 'mole sisters' lol. For some reason I've noticed it most frequently on woman from South East Asia (my background is Central Asian). As others have commented, I think these 'beauty marks' suit some people and on others it looks a bit misplaced, but I don't judge. Anyone who can work what they've got is good in my book. Beauty shines from within. People who judge from the outside can move on. Much love

I have a brown beauty mark/mole whatever you want to call it above my lip on the right. I get soo offended when I hear the word mole or when people stare at me, or when I get compliments on it, or if I get asked if it's real. Yet I'm considered the prettiest girl in school, I get all the cute guys, and I'm always told I should be a model because of it and because I have the perfect body;)

If you are good looking and have a mole, you are still good looking. If you are ugly and have a mole, you are still ugly.

Some are . . . They are called Beauty Marks on those darkish tannish type of women whom you know probably has a beauty mark on her butt, as well . . . But maybe you will never get to see it . . . Or maybe she will not even know it, either; unless you are the lucky guy to be informing her of the exact lacale, etc . . Hoo Noze? . . . .

I have one above my lip on the left side. It isn't the big kind that pokes out. It is tiny, hairless, flat and black. You can only see it up close, though. People used to ask if it was fake. I don't REALLY think that a mole automatically makes someone attractive, though. I just picked 'yes' because I have one, he-he.

DUMB QUESTION. MOLES DON'T MAKE THE LOOK. IF YOU ARE ATTRACTIVE ANYWAY, THAT'S IT. IF NOT, A MOLE IS NOT GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
