A recent study by Macleans toothpaste has found that an incredible half of women are too insecure about their appearance and looks to enjoy and feel confident about having a photograph of themselves being taken without feeling deeply self-conscious and highly self-critical of their looks.
More than 52 per cent of women questioned in the study confessed that if they had a choice, they would prefer to avoid the camera lens altogether, but one of the most common complaints felt by them was the fact that they ‘hated’ their smiles in pictures.
Up to a third of the women moaned that their teeth needed to be whiter,while a quarter of them felt that their teeth simply weren’t ‘even enough’, and 14 per cent hated to see the smile lines that were all too present on their faces.
It’s whether they are caught by the flash with their eyes closed, lacking self-confidence at the outfit they’re wearing at the time because they don’t like how they look and fear attracting unwanted comments and snidey comments if it appears on social networking websites including Facebook.
Unfortunately, another blow to the high percentage of women who suffer low-self esteem and appear highly self-critical of themselves by claiming to ‘hate’ their smiles, is that many men questioned in Macleans Toothpaste study confessed that one of the first things that attract them to a woman is her smile.
