In the July issue of Allure, a Brigham Young University Study tells that 61% of women aged 18-30 say they do activities they don't enjoy to improve their looks.
And a Fictional Fruitybeauty Study reveals that the remaining 39% are either cave-dwellers, monks or liars.
Oh, come ON.
Hot wax poured on your ladygarden?
Massaging in cellulite-fight creams when you could already be in bed reading Eat, Pray, Love?*
Fake tanning and then waiting for it dry in a freezing cold bathroom?
Accidentally pulling on your lashes with your curler?
Sitting inside a stinky Beautiful Happy Sydney Nail salon on a sunny Sunday to get your talons clipped and painted?
Blow drying your hair for 45 minutes before work only to have it flip up at the ends and frizz anyway?
Point: I am definitely in that 61%. I do many, MANY things I don't enjoy for the sake of look improving. Oh, sure, there are many that I do enjoy, but there are certainly, absolutely those that I don't. And so I call to all the monks, cave-dwellers and liars to please justify your claims that nothing you do for the sake of beauty is enjoyment-free. Come on. Prove it. MAKE ME BELIEVE.
