LONDON, August 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
With the latest celebrity trend towards beautiful and 'bootilicious' bottoms, it seems unbelievable that a recent survey - conducted by the skincare experts for the Jergens® Naturals® brand, showed that barely half of the British women who moisturise their faces, give their bum next to no attention at all (1).
The Feel Fantastic Skincare Experience initiative, found that women who moisturise regularly, are the most body-confident (2). All participants in the four week experience received a 200ml Jergens® Naturals® body moisturiser to trial, and were encouraged to feedback their results.. A staggering 92% of the participants saw a visible difference after just two weeks of using the Jergens® Naturals® body moisturiser! (3).
So surely women all over the UK should be covering their derrière as part of their daily skincare routine?
Bottom of the nation's bottoms were the Manchester testers - with barely over 40% showing their bums any moisturising love. Regionally (and perhaps unsurprisingly!) Londoners had the most stringent skincare regimes, with over 60% of those surveyed ensuring they moisturised their bum as well as moisturising their face (4).
And moisturised bottoms are good news for British men too - the survey found that women who'd used the product for four weeks were more likely to get naked in front of their partners (5). 10% of the women surveyed claimed they now felt so confident about their body that they'd happily walk down the street naked! (6)
The fact, as proven by the Feel Fantastic Skincare Experience, is that increased body confidence can be gained from something as simple as a good moisturising routine.
The solution? Jergens® Naturals® body moisturisers are really easily absorbed and smell divine, but most of all are absolutely affordable - meaning that taking care of skin all over the body is a breeze. At under £5 it is the secret weapon in the beauty artillery for UK women who are seeking to visibly enhance the condition of their skin and to boost their body confidence!
