Many women put weight on as they age, due to stress, after starting a family. And extra weight is the number one thing that will knock a women's confidence, wellbeing and, of course, their health, as a study by Seven Seas Health Oils shows.
Feeling like they are carrying an extra few pounds closely followed by having a bad hair day or having bad skin have more of an effect on how a women feels when she walks out the front door than having someone being rude to them, their poll of 3,000 women found.
Despite this most women admit they are their own worst enemy when it comes to feeling bad about themselves with more than a third saying that they are the most likely to knock their own confidence by having negative thoughts.
Sarah Day Marketing Manager for Seven Seas Health Oils said: "During the big winter cover up, people tend to neglect their bodies, especially the parts you can't see.
''People should consider looking after themselves on the inside to ensure they are looking and feeling their best in time for party season and beyond."
Putting your health first can boost confidence. Simple steps, such as exercising regularly, going to bed an hour earlier and eating well, can make a big difference. Make sure you eat a balanced diet and consider a supplement to boost your vitamin intake. Omega-3 supplements have been shown to help beat stress and depression, too.
