In a new survey put together by the folks at Mederma (you know, the makers of the stretch mark cream), 48% of women said they are more confident about their bodies now than they were 10 years ago. And now I wonder...
...do you feel that way, too? Now, I know for some of you, 10 years ago puts you pre-puberty. So if 10 years doesn't quite work, how about 5 years ago?
I love this statistic-I think it's really feel-good and speaks to the idea that women feel more confident in themselves as they get to know who they are throughout their lives. But there were other great statistics, too, like 66% said they are generally happy with their physical appearance. And although 55 percent of those with scars and/or stretch marks admitted to actively looked for ways to improve them, 65% said their skin imperfections have little impact on their self-confidence.
Tell me, do you agree with these findings? Are you more confident today than ever before? (I hope you are! I want my readers feeling better about themselves all the time!)
And, while we're on the topic of feeling great about ourselves, check out these 22 confidence boosters.
