OXY Compare Boys Attitudes on Self-Image

GLASGOW, Scotland, March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent national survey conducted with 512 people by the UK's first boys skincare range; New OXY, revealed some interesting findings about boys attitudes towards self-image.

An extensive questionnaire was circulated amongst 16-24 year olds across the UK to gain further insights into the pressures on young people in today's highly competitive, image-obsessed world. Fashion, beauty and the opposite sex have always been a pre-occupation of self-conscious teens, but New OXY creators wondered if in the era of celebrity adoration - how confident are kids feeling?

Across the UK, teens from Sheffield worry the most about their appearance with 56% polled admitting it's the most important thing in their life. Southampton youths are most embarrassed by bad skin as teenagers at 56%. Questions about shopping habits show that parents in Edinburgh have the highest input into their kids' purchases, as 79% of Edinburgh boys had their underwear bought by their mum. Glasgow rounds out the survey - topping the scales as the city whose youth is most worried about the opposite sex - at a rate of 60%.

Here are some of the findings from the major UK cities;
