Women still only make about 80 cents on the dollar compared to men. And they also have to absorb THIS extra expense.
Researchers recently talked to more than 3,000 women in the U.S., and found the average woman spends $8 a day just on her FACE . . . $5 worth of skincare products, and $3 worth of make-up.
If you do your face up seven days a week, that’s just over $2,900 a year.
Women in New York, Connecticut, and West Virginia spend the most, at $11 a day. Women in Montana spend the least at $3.50. Then it’s Utah at $4.50, and Colorado, New Mexico, and Maine at $5 a day. (See the top ten and bottom ten here.)
They also found women spend 10 minutes on their face each morning, and use 16 different products. One-third said they wouldn’t leave the house if they couldn’t wear foundation.
Women in California do their face the fastest, at 3 minutes. Women in New York are the slowest, at 21 minutes. Then it takes an average of 7 minutes to wash it all off and moisturize at night.
Women in Delaware spend the most on lipstick at $30 a year. Women in South Carolina spend the most on foundation with $45 a year. And women in Alaska spend the most on moisturizer . . . $47 a year.
