Many feelings of insecurity we as women experience are fuelled by the onslaught of images from a looks-obsessed culture. Although we know the face gracing the cover of our favourite magazine has been Photoshopped beyond the borders of reality, we internalise the message: a pretty face is a young-looking face.
