Camera shy: Half of women 'hate' looking at themselves in photographs

By July 25, 2011 January 2nd, 2020 No Comments

It may be the age of social media and digital photography.

But British women are so critical of their own face and body, that  almost half ‘hate’ looking at themselves in pictures, a new study found.

Photos now get a wider audience than ever before as people rush to post snaps on Facebook, where they can draw catty comments from all and sundry….It seems the thing women tend to hate most when seeing pictures of themselves is their smile, with 52 per cent keen to avoid the lens for this reason….

Teeth discolouration (32 per cent), wonky teeth (24 per cent) and ‘smile lines’ (14 per cent) are the main culprits for female smile-insecurities.

However, despite women’s hang-ups, a smile is the first thing men are attracted to in a woman – ahead of cleavage or a nice pair of legs.

Interestingly, 28 per cent of men actually said they found ‘smile lines’ attractive….TV presenter Holly Willoughby’s smile proved to be most popular among men, polling 35 per cent of the vote, followed by Cheryl Cole (33 per cent), Katy Perry (17 per cent) and Fearne Cotton (11 per cent).Read more
