Men are fast catching up women when it comes to worrying about their appearance, according to new research.
A detailed look into the body confidence of 2,000 men and women documented a dramatic rise in appearance-related anxiety for both sexes. Results showed two-thirds of women feel under too much pressure to look good, claiming a rise in ‘perfect-looking’ women in the media has set unrealistic standards.
Men now spend over three hours a week on average stressing over their image and feel the level of expectation placed upon them is rising. In fact, results also showed a rise in men dressing for their body shape, discussing their image with partners. One in eight men is even dieting in secret. Baldness and ‘moobs’ emerged as men’s biggest concerns.
