A new study by women’s fashion retailer Justice Clothing found that many women have “bad looks” and they are often unaware of the issue.
The study, which surveyed 2,400 women across six cities in the US, found that women are “extremely embarrassed” to talk about their “bad look” and have no idea how to “remove” it.
In some cases, women are told to “cleanse” their skin, according to the study, and others told that “all women are like this” and that it’s “just a part of who we are”.
In one case, a woman was told by a sales associate to “just get rid of her bad looks”.
“I have always wanted to get rid, but never have I really been able to find the right answer,” she said.
“It’s a shame, but I think it’s better to get it out of the way now.”
While the study found that the number of women who reported “bad” looks had increased significantly in the last five years, women were more likely to be “angry, embarrassed, or ashamed” about the condition than ever before.

Last year, a study revealed that only one in four women over the age of 65 had “good” skin.
According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, more than 30 per cent of people aged 15 to 64 had “bad or fair” skin, while 25 per cent had “poor” skin and another 23 per cent “not yet fully developed”.
In the US alone, more people are diagnosed with “skin cancer” each year than any other disease.
Dr Mark Guttman, an associate professor of dermatology at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, told the New York Times that people with “bad, dark, or uneven” skin “are much more likely than those with good skin to have skin that is uneven, coarse, or dry”.
Professor Guttmann also warned that the condition “can affect your health and well-being and can lead to many of the same problems as acne”.
While many women choose not to seek help, it’s important to remember that the symptoms can be subtle and there is no “one way” to treat “bad looking skin”.

A 2016 study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology found that “a combination of moisturisers, UV protection and cleansing agents” were recommended for those with “moderate or severe” skin discolouration.
Women are also advised to avoid wearing tight clothes and light fabrics as “tight clothes can cause the skin to feel tight”.
The “tight clothing” trend may be linked to the increasing number of “high-waisted jeans” in popular culture, which many women find “too tight”.
According to research by the Cosmetic Dermetology Society, “a full-body wash is a must” for anyone who has “tight, uneven or uneven skin”.
“A simple soap and warm water, as well as some fine sanding with a microplane or fine grit sandpaper, will remove any visible signs of irritation,” it said.
“A gentle moisturiser or a cotton pad is the best way to remove makeup and oil from the skin.
Apply a light touch with a soft sponge to the affected area.
Use a soft towel or a face wash for washing your hands and neck, and a light scrub to the whole body.”
