It Really Does Cost A Fortune To Look Good
It takes me about 30 minutes everyday to get ready to face the day. I never have given it much thought to how much it costs me a day. But think about this...it takes women almost a hour or more to get ready. Hair, make-up, and so on. It all adds up.
Researchers recently talked to more than 3,000 women in the U.S., and found the average woman spends $8 a day just on her FACE . . . $5 worth of skincare products, and $3 worth of make-up.
If you do your face up seven days a week, that's just over $2,900 a year.
Women in New York, Connecticut, and West Virginia spend the most, at $11 a day. Women in Montana spend the least at $3.50. Then it's Utah at $4.50, and Colorado, New Mexico, and Maine at $5 a day. (See the top ten and bottom ten here.)
They also found women spend 10 minutes on their face each morning, and use 16 different products. One-third said they wouldn't leave the house if they couldn't wear foundation.
Women in California do their face the fastest, at 3 minutes. Women in New York are the slowest, at 21 minutes. Then it takes an average of 7 minutes to wash it all off and moisturize at night.
Women in Delaware spend the most on lipstick at $30 a year. Women in South Carolina spend the most on foundation with $45 a year. And women in Alaska spend the most on moisturizer . . . $47 a year.
Whatever you do ladies, don't change it. You be you. Pry should have done this yesterday for National Women's Day, but better late than sorry.
