The price of looking good

EMBARGOED TO 0001 MONDAY AUGUST 20
File photo dated 6/12/2011 of a shopper carrying shopping bags on Oxford Street, London as people are no better off financially than they were a year ago and their ability to spend on the high street is likely to remain 'subdued' in the coming months, a study found today. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Monday August 20, 2012. After inflation, people's spending power showed no growth at all in July compared with the same time last year, meaning consumers had no extra money to spend on discretionary items last month, Lloyds TSB found.

Brits are spending millions on beauty miracle-workers to cover up a poor night’s sleep.

Women spend an average of £52 a month on beauty products to disguise the signs of ageing, eye bags and fine lines, according to a Silentnight study.

Despite the big beauty spend, fewer than a third of people (30 per cent) believe that the products actually do the job.

Respondents believed sleep, staying hydrated, healthy diet and exercise beat face creams for staving off the ageing process.

But despite this British women are still forking out a massive £133,575 over a lifetime in order to keep their looks maintained from head to toe.
