Mirror, Mirror on the wall … if I check my appearance eight times a day, am I the most vain or narcissistic of them all? Turns out I’d be like most women, who sneak a peek in the mirror on average eight times a day and it’s not for reasons you might think.
In a recent study, a UK-based company named Simple Skincare surveyed 2,000 British women about their daily mirror-using habits and found one in ten girls touch up their make-up at least three times a day while one in five re-do their hair more than four times every day. Fifty percent of women reported that they wouldn’t leave their homes without some sort of mirror, and 10 percent of participants said that they use their compacts at least 10 times a day.
There is so much more attention directed at how women look compared with how men look, and women are more likely to be self-conscious than vain if they’re constantly looking in the mirror. Many women are always on the go and want to look their best so giving themselves a quick glimpse when they get the chance is only natural.
