WATCH: A university gave women the ultimate daily beauty regime

For many women, their daily beauty routine can be a source of frustration.

If one brow is aching more than other, or you can’t seem to get your eyeliner to match then you could get up throwing bronzer all over the place in irritation. Don’t even get us started on trying to find the time to ‘bake’ our faces. 

The people at Revlon partnered with Fordham University in the US to see if a daily beauty and self-love routine could help women increase their self-confidence- and improve how they felt about their relationships.

They asked several women to start a daily ritual of self-affirmations and keeping a journal. 

First the women and their partners were quizzed about their relationships- and what they identified at the biggest insecurities and turn-ons for the women.

Confidence was cited as being a big one. Then, the women were given their new daily routine. 

Find a private place where you can spend a couple of minutes going through the ritual:

– Look at yourself in the mirror.
– Apply fragrance or scented lotion.
– Apply eye makeup.
– Enjoy a mint or piece of chocolate.
– Apply lipstick or gloss.
– Take a slow, deep breath. 
– Look at yourself in the mirror.
– Smile.

After one week, they were asked to come back and give a report of how they felt about themselves. Meanwhile, their partners were asked to listen, and things got very emotional. 

After trying their new routine, 97 per cent of the women felt a positive change in themselves. 

It was also discovered that 71 per cent had an “increased desire for romance,” 69 per cent were more open to finding love, 77 per cent felt more outgoing and social and 74 per cent said they were more likely to flirt.

You need to watch the whole video, but grab some tissues first because it will hit you smack bang in the feelings!
