Teenagers spend as high as 7.7 hours per week on their looks.

The survey, which polled 2,000 adults and 200 teenagers, also discovered that 60 percent of adult women have negative thoughts about themselves at least once a week, compared to 36 percent of men.

Sad. I'm a woman and I never have negative thoughts about myself. I love me. There's no 'me' better than 'me.' We all our a unique version of ourselves. Look your best for you and embrace it. :) Cheers.
