Yes, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. To response to the OP's question, it's a combination of genetics, diet, and lifestyle. Most Scandinavians eat a healthy diet, spend time outdoors, and stay active.

Nobody ever wins the war of the self-hating body image.

I've lived in Scandinavia, and I gotta tell you, there are plenty of average-looking women there, too. Pudgy women (even in their teens), plain women, all kinds. I think you just have a preference for a certain facial type, which you take to be universal there. I guess southern Europeans, French, and Slavs need not apply? To say nothing of the wide variety of Asian women, Latin American women, Native American women, etc.
