275x250.jpgBritish women spend more money on their looks than they do on their health, a study has revealed.

The typical female forks out an average of £336 a year on hair products, make-up and fake tan in a bid to look young, but just £228 is spent on vitamins and gym membership.

And while three quarters enjoy spending cash on looking their best, just 41 percent say they like heading to the shops for healthy stuff.

The statistics emerged in study of 3,000 women aged between 18 and 65 who were quizzed on their spending habits and attitudes when faced with choosing between image or health.

Maybe that's because 56 percent said they could cover up the effects of a late night with make-up and going to the gym just sounds like hard word.
