The Daily Mail has reported today that many women feel most attractive in their early 30s, research reveals that four out of ten women feel at their most beautiful at the age of 32! The survey of British women aged between 40 and 60 found a fifth picked 40 as the age they felt happiest with their looks. 38 per cent said that they felt the most attractive in their early thirties & attributed this to confidence gained through experience, an healthy love life and diet.
So celebrities such Liv Tyler, pictured above, Sarah Michelle Geller & Sophie Dahl will be feeling pretty good about their 32 years in 2009!
Psychologist Dr Sandra Wheatley said the findings were a ‘very encouraging’ & added : ‘It sounds to me like women are becoming much more swayed by personality. It’s a sign that we are valued for who we are and what we are capable of, not just what is on the surface. Feeling beautiful is tied in with confidence and life experience. At 32, a woman has been through and survived more experiences and achieved more than at 22. Women can be their own worst enemy, scrutinising each other’s weight and wrinkles. But this is a really encouraging study that beauty is more than skin deep.'
The survey of 1,500 women was carried out by Willow Water.
