Women spend 335 hours a year working on our body image/appearance

In this article is talking about how some women obsess about their body image/appearance. Their is such thing as self-caring about your appearance and there is obsessing too much about your appearance, a lot of women are obsessed with how they look and what their body looks like which is extremely unhealthy. We spend an average of 2 weeks/ 335 hours a year worrying about our body image/ appearance. TODAY news/talk recently did a survey and found that 60% of women have negative thoughts about themselves weekly. This is  compared to 36% of men. More than 2,000 adults plus 200 teenagers over age 16 participated in the TODAY/AOL body image survey. This was a online survey constructed by a online representative a month ago. 

I think that you should read this article and tell me what you think about it!

Do we spend to much money on makeup?

I was recently reading and article on how much money women spend on make-up and how much of these cosmetics we have in our household. The total come to 17 billion dollars spent on make-up per year, around 300$ per person. I don’t understand how do we put so much money into buying make-up but we don’t always have a fridge full of food to come home to. A survey was recently done and every women has at the least 12 eye shadows but only uses 5 of them, 2-3 mascaras but only uses 1 daily, 7 lipsticks only uses 2.6, 3 different shades of blush only uses 1 daily, and 2 foundations but uses one of both of them daily. I think that this is an unbelievable amount of make-up considering its only for one women, if there was 2 women in the household it would be double. I think that us girls and women need to cut down on the amount of male-up we use daily.

 I think that it would be a good idea to read this article and see how much money we really spend on makeup. its unbelievable like i said I don’t understand how we spend so much money on makeup and wear so much!.
