How much time do you spend ogling yourself? If you're about as vain as the average lady, new research suggests it's probably around eight times a day. Half of the women surveyed by Simple Skincare also said that they never left the house without some kind of portable mirror.

That sounds like a lot of time to coo, "Hey, good lookin'" and shoot finger guns at yourself. But not so fast! Kathie Lee insisted that it depends on the mirror, and that it's not always about vanity. Like, what if you're only checking for stuff in your teeth and nose?


KLG, who admitted she has spent a lot of money on her teeth, only to find that every piece of food she eats gets lodged in there, spoke ominously "the goober that wouldn't die." So sometimes, you're just making sure you're not showing somebody the remnants of your spinach salad.
