|Women spend more than £13,000 in a lifetime on beauty products in a bid to feel bet¬ter about themselves, accord¬ing to researchers.

A smile from a stranger, a cud¬dle and being told 'I love you' were also guaranteed to make a woman feel attractive and sure of herself, according to the study. Researchers found four in ten girls immediately feel better about themselves if they look good in a photograph. And a further 40 per cent feel great if they wake from an unin¬terrupted night's sleep.
