Only 22% of South Africans are very happy with the way they look – which means that nearly 80% of people would like to look better.
Men, (25%), black males in particular (31%), as well as young respondents aged 16-24 years (31%) are more likely to feel happy with their looks, and white females (10%) are far less likely to feel happy with their looks.
However, only 21% of people agree though with the statement ‘People judge you by your looks’.
