As female teenagers, we are self conscious and sometimes very fixated with beauty and how to enhance it.

As compared to British women, Singaporean female teenagers would only spend $350 at most on facial products. However, Singaporean female teenagers would spend 1 hour at most on beautifying herself, more than the 15 minute daily average for British women.
95% of the survey respondents would not go for plastic surgery. Only a minority of 5% are willing to go for plastic surgery.
As compared to women from Britain, Singaporean female teenagers are spend less money on cosmetic products but more time beautifying themselves.
The greatest amount of money one would spend on beautifying herself is $350, least $0.
The greatest amount of time one would spend one beautifying herself is 1 hour, the least none at all.
