Ruby Rose and Schick Women's Confidence
It's no surprise that women have their own 'inspiring' secrets to make them feel better, and the latest research from Schick® Women's shows that when it comes to quick tricks, there's nothing quite like a well manicured bikini line for that extra boost of confidence.
Schick® Quattro for Women® Trimstyle™ in conjunction with Jigsaw Strategic Research, conducted a national survey asking 1,200 women (aged 18 - 34) to reveal the secrets behind their confidence - everything from what impacts confidence, how Aussie women view themselves, to the everyday tips and tricks women undertake for that much needed lift.
Schick® QFW® Trimstyle™ discovered that 82% of the women surveyed claim they have increased self esteem if they maintain their nether region showing that a little effort goes a long way! Nine out of 10 claim this is because they feel much more 'prepared' and 'feminine' afterwards. In fact, maintaining the bikini area is seen as being more important than having a manicure, pedicure or hair colour - even before a first date!
The study also indicates that nearly all women surveyed (96%) feel their confidence is impacted by their feelings about their bodies and that feeling satisfied with their body has a profound effect on confidence levels. 80% of women questioned also acknowledged that 'being your own person' is the biggest contributor to self confidence. However, embracing 'the skin you're in' isn't easy for women, as a whopping 98% admitted to pretending to be more confident than they really feel.

As someone who exemplifies her own style of confidence, Schick® QFW® Trimstyle™ can reveal Ruby Rose tops the charts voted by Aussie women as the celebrity that best embodies confidence, beating Jessica Mauboy and Dannii Minogue to the top spot.
Ruby Rose says:
"I would never have guessed that Australian women view me as being so confident as I have my insecurities like everyone else. However, I do make sure that I embrace both my strengths and weaknesses to make sure I feel safe and strong within my own skin. We all have responsibilities in life and I believe one of mine is to show people how to be confident and that it's ok to be different".
So, it seems accepting our flaws and a little pampering will help boost confidence levels.
"Schick® QFW® Trimstyle™ research revealed that small things make a big difference. Like 82% of the women surveyed, I agree that it feels good to give ourselves a little care and love like having a facial or a massage. In fact I love how I feel when I go to the gym, shower, or do some 'personal grooming' and put on fresh clothes especially BRAND NEW socks! I know - it's weird. I might be the only one who sees it, but I feel more put together.
Life Resolutions' Director and Principal Psychologist, Mary Magalotti, agrees with the research results, adding:
"Today, there are enormous societal and media pressures on women to be successful and confident in various demands, including work, home, body, health and friendships. So it's a little wonder that women often 'pretend' to be more confident than they really are. Confidence doesn't have to mean perfection; instead it can begin with effort and courage to try something new or stepping out of our comfort zone. It's important to keep in mind that actions can lead to feelings, so self confidence can actually be increased from setting aside time each day to do something that is in line with our values and makes us feel good. This could be something as simple as a little daily pampering, or a stroll in the park during our lunch break".
