Testosterone is a hormone found in humans and animals. In men the testosterone is produced in testicles.

The making of testosterone starts with the attainment of puberty in men, and begins to lower after the age of 30.

The high testosterone is associated with high sex drive, higher sperm count and hence a higher chance of fertilization. It also affects the brain and mood of men.

Therefore, women like men with a high amount of testosterone. So, let’s dive deep into the 15 signs of high testosterone face.


(1) Smaller eyes:

The person with smaller eyes is more likely to be exposed to the higher level of testosterone in the womb. The men are attracted towards the women with bigger eyes. Because big eyes for women means she has high female hormones. And to the opposite, the women are more likely to find attractive to the small-eyed men.

(2) Facial-Width-to-Height-Ratio:

The Facial width to height ratio (FWHR) is a ratio used to determine the width of a person’s face compared to its height. To calculate your own FWHR you have to divide your facial width (the widest area of your face) by the distance between the mid of your eyebrows and your upper lips.

A high FWHR ratio could be something like 1:9 where a low ratio could be something like 1:4.

The high FWHR means a higher level of testosterone in both men and women.

(3) Large and well-defined jawline:

There are 30 muscles in our face. Testosterone plays an important role in the development of muscles. A high level of testosterone strengthens and tightens muscles which result in an elaborated and well-defined jawline.

People with tiny jaws are more sensitive and less competitive. But the people with larger jaws tend to be more aggressive, dominant and competitive.

(4) More facial hair:

Testosterone causes the body and facial hair to escalate, resulting in darker, thicker hair. Dr. Lauralee Sherwood explained in her book “Human Physiology” that the facial hair is the results of testosterone-driven hair growth.

Some females have more facial hair than other females. Those females have a higher level of testosterone compared to the other females.

(5) Oily Skin:

The testosterone increases oil secretion all over the body of men, but this effect is seen on the skin of the face. The increased testosterone-driven oil secretion in the men’s body odor, is to help him by making him more attractive to women.

(6) Facial Acne:

Testosterone can increase facial acne. It is due to the increased releasing of facial oil. The acne results due to the bacteria trapped in the pores when the oil clogs the facial pores.

Attention ladies, the face with acne is not ugly, but a sign of high testosterone level.

(7) Large Noses:

Women find attractive towards the men with larger noses. Larger noses are the sign of high testosterone level in men. Small noses are attributed as the sign of feminity and large noses are to masculinity.

(8) Angular face:

Angular faces are related to the higher amount of testosterone level in men. Testosterone reduces the fat in the body and face of a man. So, the men with high testosterone will have less fat in their faces. This type of faces height and width are same.

Angular faced men are more confident and competitive by nature. They see the bigger picture and don’t crave for the details of everything.

(9) Larger Adam’s apple:

When the laryngeal cartilage grows, it tilts slightly causing a bump on the throat which is known as Adam’s apple.

It is due to the high testosterone level in men which cause the laryngeal cartilage to grow. And a high testosterone man tends to have a deep voice.
