This week research revealed a third of all women fear their appearance could hold back their careers. One in 10 has called in sick because they were having a "bad" hair or skin day.

It is interesting that the poll, conducted by LloydsPharmacy, didn't bother to question men about similar insecurities. Interesting, but not surprising. There are only a few grooming issues for gents to be concerned with. If you've ironed your shirt, washed your hair and had a shave within the past seven days, you're good.
