I Am Just Going To The Bathroom & May Be Some Time

Sometimes it's hard to be a woman. Sometimes it's the skin on our feet that's hard. My life is a never ending battle with mother nature to be soft and smooth. I'll tackle the world once I'm preened to within an inch of my life.

My "pamper nights" or countless hours spent in the bathroom, lathering on every lotion known to man, in a frenzied attempt to keep signs of ageing at bay, are a normal part of my beauty routine. I need to look my ruddy best. Well, less feral.

Hands up if you've ever died inside slightly, as your fella goes to stroke an unshaven leg. Preferably yours! Nothing kills the moment like a mild to moderately scratched hand. Scratching is definitely not winning!

According to The Scotsman, research carried out by a bathroom company has proved that women spend "The equivalent of one year, seven months, and 15 days" in the bathroom, "a month longer than men."
So how do we pass that one year, seven months and 15 days? We're exfoliating and moisturising our ageing torsos like there's no tomorrow. We're lathering our faces with the latest must have beauty buys, with an unwavering faith that this product could be 'The One.'

And why do we spend our time cocooned in a steamy room trying to look brighter and tighter?
It's no revelation to lay part of the blame on social media. We're surrounded by airbrushed photo's of hotties now more than ever. (Dismiss them as airbrushed. It'll make you feel better).
There's a second influence too. There's never been a better time for women to strike than right now! I'm not talking about downing tools. It's a time for gals to go out into the world and reach for the stars. In an age of female achieving why are we still so appearance obsessed?

In an article on www.psychologytoday.com , Marcia Reynolds Psy.D writes, "Quite a lot of research has tried to determine how many seconds it takes before a person forms a judgement of someone they meet. Their brains calculate your value in terms of age, social standing and how approachable you are within thirty seconds or less."

I always read psychology today y'know. *Nose grows
Ok, so I was doing a spot of research for this post and stumbled across it! Sounds good though right?

Just thirty seconds to create those first impressions! Taking care of your appearance doesn't make you shallow, or superficial. Hoorah! I do love a long bubbly bath!
Balance what's on the outside with substance from within on you're on to a winner! I'm thinking read a book WHILE your face mask sets!! Get your butt to the bathroom quick gals!! GO GO GO! There's a world waiting for you!

Thanks so much for reading. I'd love to know your thoughts on this post! Do you feel pressured to look tip top? Or are you a fella whose gal is currently MIAB?...Missing In A Bathroom!!
