It is shameful, but nevertheless a fact, that while there are numerous aesthetics, the unavoidable prerequisites of aesthetics in general, the representation of the development of racial ideals of beauty, has not yet been written.”
Alfred Rosenberg

Racial standards are ubiquitous in film industries around the world, whose actors are selected, not solely by acting ability (which can be learned), but significantly, by physical appearance (which is mostly inherited).

This is not a bad thing in itself, as fans want to aesthetically idealize the leading characters, and it is the actors’ job to portray characters convincingly, so it is a necessity that leading actors look the part, additional to their ability to play the part.
The same is true of fashion and advertising, as a good-looking model is required to idealize the clothes etc. on display or the product/service offered.

Those who have a beautiful physique should be brought into the foreground, so that they might encourage the development of a beautiful bodily form among the people in general.”
Adolf Hitler

Physical appearance depends on how closely a person represents a racial archetype.
Plain people are nowhere near any archetype; striking people approximate some archetypes.
Which archetype we aspire towards reflects our racial idealism.
We can recognize nearness to an archetype, hence have our attention drawn to that person among a crowd of plainer people, but if we dislike the archetype itself, we will feel disgust rather than admiration.
This is no different than when we read a well-written essay promoting ignoble ideas; the skilful language only adds to our revulsion towards the barbaric content.
Only those whose type approximate an archetype that we like will be found beautiful by us.
Not surprisingly, people of Aryan descent, are found to like Aryan archetypes.

In Hitler’s words:
The differences between the various peoples should not prevent us from recognizing the community of race which unites them on a higher plane.”
According to this way of thinking, racial idealism is about quality, not ethnicity.
The body expresses our very being. The striving for beauty is inborn among the Aryan.”
Baldur von Schirach

 The “Neanderthal look”
The “Aryan look”
The “Aryan look” is characterized as being as far removed from the “Neanderthal (Jewish and Negroid) look” (ie. low crown, sloping forehead, heavy brow ridge, heavy nose, heavy jaw and chin) as possible. 
'Neanderthal' type physiques are on average less neotenous than Homo Sapiens.

Neoteny - also called juvenilization, is one of the three ways by which paedomorphism can arise. Paedomorphism or paedomorphosis is the retention by adults of traits previously seen only in the young. In neoteny, the physiological (or somatic - bodily) development of an individual is slowed or delayed. This processes is referred to as paedomorphism. Ultimately this process results in the retention, in the adults of a species, of juvenile physical characteristics well into maturity.The word neoteny is borrowed from the German Neotenie, the latter constructed from the Greek νέος (neos, young) and τείνειν (teínein, to extend). The adjective form of the word is either "neotenic" or "neotenous"
The qualitative reason why some value a high crown, high forehead, minimal brow ridge, light nose, light jaw and light chin is because these approximate the condition in which we were born, - they are neotenous - when our crowns and foreheads dominated our skull and were actually open - the only condition that supposedly allows the “halo” and the “third eye” (both aids to transcending the material world) to operate freely.

The Third Eye
While this condition is lost as soon as the skull sutures close, having a high crown and forehead at least leaves marginally more room inside the skull in the corresponding locations.
Once these close, we start accepting the world.
Maintaining our idealism hereafter requires active struggle.
Note that cranial capacity is a different measurement, and therefore irrelevant.
What matters to us is not the total volume, but rather the layout.
A skull with a sloping forehead can have a larger cranial capacity than a skull with a high forehead, but whereas cranial capacity correlates merely with IQ test scores, and other non-moral attributes, it is the high forehead that correlates with nobility - the essence of Aryanism - note that Aryan means 'noble'. 
It is for this reason that the term “high-brow” (ie. non-sloping forehead with no brow ridge) originally referred to Aryan skull shape, and its association with moral idealism.

Neotenous Aryan Face
Neoteny is not to be confused with paedomorphy, or “baby-faced” appearance.
Many adults described as “baby-faced”, usually with shorter round or square face shapes, look very different from how they looked as children, and in many cases only started looking ”baby-faced” after puberty.
Such types are paedomorphic, but not neotenous.
The neotenous, usually with a longer oval face shape, are those who as adults retain to a greater extent the look they had as children, in other words those upon whom maturation had a relatively light effect (which also implies lower sexual dimorphism).
The difference between neoteny and paedomorphy becomes most obvious at middle age, when the paedomorphic start appearing visibly worn out, while the neotenous still look youthful.
It is notoriously difficult to guess the age of people with Aryan bone structure.
The opposite error is to assume that a long face is automatically an Aryan face.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
There are plenty of long faces, with heavy, non-neotenous facial features which are most definitely non-Aryan.
Such faces are usually oblong in shape, as opposed to the Aryan oval.
The Aryan oval virtually leaves no room for the possibility of heavy features.
Genuine neoteny is associated closely with ectomorphy.

The ectoderm is the original germ layer of the embryo, with the endoderm and mesoderm being subsequent corruptions.
Ectomorphy, which is predominance of the ectoderm over the endoderm and mesoderm after birth, is thus neoteny at a very fundamental level.
Here too appears the parallel with low sexual dimorphism: whereas mesomorphy is archetypically masculine, and endomorphy is archetypically feminine, ectomorphy represents biological repudiation of both these archetypes in favour of Original Nobility.
(It is on this account that ectodermic healthcare systems (e.g. chiropractic, acupuncture) are more therapeutic on Aryan patients, whereas mesodermic or endodermic remedies are more therapeutic on non-Aryan patients.
A strong ectoderm subdues the mesoderm and the endoderm.
A subdued mesoderm produces gracile (as opposed to robust) bones, higher proportion of slow-twitch/Type I (as opposed to fast-twitch/Type II) muscles and a well shaped muscle mass.
A subdued endoderm produces low, evenly distributed body fat.
The strong ectoderm itself produces focused scalp hair (as opposed to body hair) growth.
All these are neotenous traits.

lean, long-limbed,
fine-boned physique
The combined result is a lean, long-limbed, fine-boned physique that looks youthful through most of life, and which is by no coincidence ergonomically suited to the Neolithic subsistence farming lifestyle that involved repetitive, stamina-based labor in a wider variety of sustained physical positions than were required for the more primitive hunting and herding lifestyles.
Aryan facial proportions suggest ectomorphy to the viewer even though the body is out of the picture.
The Aryan skull is balanced by corresponding limb length and hand size.
A particular example highlighting the importance of balance between the body parts is the trait commonly known as 'Morton’s Toe', in which the second toe is slightly more prominent than the big toe.
While this is a racial ideal of human beauty consistently portrayed in the visual arts, in reality it can cause some walking pain in those who carry the trait, which indicates that the rest of their body is not balanced to it.
Therefore, instead of saying that 'Morton’s Toe' is automatically an Aryan phenotype, we propose that only the ~20% of carriers for whom it causes no pain can be properly considered to have the Aryan phenotype.

On the issue of height, neotenous faces are rarer among taller people, due to more overall bone growth during puberty leading to a heavier brow ridge, nose, jaw and chin.
But this means that a person who manages to have a neotenous face despite being tall (more common with ectomorphs, involving proportionately longer legs) is a particularly outstanding specimen of Aryan phenotype, and superior to a shorter person with a similarly neotenous face.
In other words, we value height only among the neotenous, not as an independent factor.
Emphatically, tallness in combination with heavy facial features (more common with mesomorphs or endomorphs, involving a proportionately longer torso) is of no aesthetic value at all.
The lower part of the noble Aryan does not oscillate when he walks. When gazing he does so straight on. He sits with composure, without relinquishing balance. He makes no useless movements with his hands or feet.”
                                                                    Miguel Serrano

Relaxed posture is all that is required for Aryan skeletal composition to be fully expressed.
Aryan skin is able to both tan and un-tan rapidly as necessary, without sunburn, due to high metabolism.

Significantly, many prominent evolutionary theorists propose that neoteny (see above) has been a key feature in human evolution.
It is suggested that the evolutionary development of humans is one where we have been "retaining to adulthood the originally juvenile features of our ancestors".
In addition, a major evolutionary trend in human beings is greater prolongation of childhood, and retardation of maturity.
It has also been claimed that neoteny becomes more apparent as early humans evolved into later forms.
Neoteny is also seen as crucial for the development of species-typical capacities that depend upon a long period of attachment to care-givers for the opportunities to engage in and develop their capacity for emotional communication.

Because of the importance of facial expression in the process of interactive signaling, neotenous features, such as hair loss, allow for more efficient and rapid communication of socially important messages that are based on facially expressive emotional signaling.
Note that Cro-Magnon humans (40,000 to 10,000 years ago) differed from co-existing Neanderthalers in the following ways: higher forehead, less prominent brow ridges, smaller teeth, less robust bodies, and reduced sexual dimorphism.
Humans have also been evolving toward greater psychological neoteny.
It appears that what looks like immaturity - the retention of youthful attitudes and behaviors into later adulthood - is actually a valuable developmental characteristic, which is referred to as 'psychological neoteny'.
Highly educated, high achieving individuals, demonstrate significantly more neotenous psychological traits.
In fact, the ability of an adult human to learn is considered a neotenous trait.
Physical neotenization in humans has, likewise, caused psychologically neotenous traits in humans: curiosity, playfulness, sociality and an innate desire to cooperate.
The most sublime beauty owes its nobility of shape, in the last analysis, to the fact that the most beautiful form is the form that is best suited to the purpose it is meant to serve.”
Adolf Hitler

While personality is indeed more important than appearance, appearance provides an eloquent visual analogy.

Aryan racial ideal of beauty is considered to be exalted in Völkisch philosophy not because it should be fixated on, to the extent of forgetting about nobility, but because it is important to realize the potentials that Aryanization offers.
In addition, physical appearance is seen as evolutionarily related to spiritual quality in feelings of sexual attraction.

Specifically, it is stated that an idealistic person is sexually attracted only to those of near-perfect beauty, whereas most people have much lower standards, so that while they too would doubtless prefer a sexual partner of great beauty, it is not a necessary condition for them to feel sexual attraction.
This implies that, in any society where individuals of great beauty are unavailable as spouses to idealists, idealistic bloodlines would quickly go extinct (because idealists would rather stay single than lower their standards), as has in fact been steadily occurring throughout history.
The full solution to reverse this demographic problem would require a highly specialized application of state control over reproduction, but a prerequisite for this solution is a considerably higher proportion of individuals of great beauty than has been currently seen.
Thus, in the rigorous world of National Socialist methodology, the demographic improvement of physical appearance would go hand in hand with the demographic improvement of spiritual quality.
