Beauty is still a sexy topic, and that is because of our obsession with beauty.
Women’s beauty has been defined by the way we can achieve our goals, while also giving ourselves the best possible look, shape and style.
A new survey of more than 5,000 women reveals that our obsession is growing in the eyes of women everywhere, with an almost one in five (19%) saying they “often feel like their skin is falling apart”.
“We’re always striving to look good in the most flattering way,” one woman said, while another said: “If you’re ever looking for the perfect lipstick, your complexion is going to look weird because it’s going to be too red.”
The findings come from a survey of 2,200 women conducted by the beauty salon chain Clarins, which found that 40% of women said that when they were “in the mood to look beautiful”, they often think about what to wear, and 30% said they “want to look flawless.”
And that’s not even taking into account how they feel about the way their skin looks and feels after they’ve spent so much time looking at it.
It’s not just men who are getting in on the trend, with a quarter (24%) of women and 18% of men saying that they think their skin “will look strange after a few weeks”.
“What’s most striking is that the majority of women (75%) said they don’t feel like they have the time to do a full face of makeup or even a full application of lip gloss.
Only 12% of the women surveyed thought they have enough time to apply lipstick,” said Clarins UK marketing director, Katie Hester.
The trend is also apparent in the UK, with women across the country having a higher percentage of women admitting that they don “always” look great in the sun than women in the US.
This is a clear sign that beauty is getting more attention, with beauty-conscious women spending more time on Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook.
Beauty is everywhere, and with it, the popularity of beauty is rising.
It is a trend that can only help in our future, as the future of beauty depends on it.
“Beauty is a topic that has been around for a long time, so it’s really exciting that it’s now becoming mainstream,” said Laura Wessels, the founder of Beauty Insider, a beauty app for women.
“It’s really great that we’re starting to see a shift towards the mainstream and women really understand the value of beauty, and it’s something they want to look after,” said Wessel.
