 Women Spend Almost a Month Every Year Worrying: Study

A new study finds women spend the equivalent of a month every year worrying about their appearance.

According to the study commissioned by Lycra Beauty owners Invista, this includes fretting about clothes, hair, weight, curves and skin, the Daily Express reported.


It takes up an average of 12 hours and four minutes a week, or 26 days per year.

Choosing clothes takes most of a women's time, with them taking 50 minutes a week picking her outfits and another one hour and 32 minutes worrying if they look okay in them.

Other concerns of women are being too fat, which takes 1 hour 46 minutes, too thin taking 22 minutes, stressing over frizzy or greasy hair taking 57 minutes and many more.

Having a good complexion and skin colour is also very important to many girls, who agonize over it 2 hours and 22 minutes a week.

Breast size is also on the worry list, either for being too large or too small.
