Reddit comments:

Most if not all of these statements are correlations (obviously). That said, I believe they are stated fairly accurately. Example, point #13 indirectly mentions the data is made up of undergrads giving hypothetical compensations in an hypothetical case.

Also, the last point about spending money on beauty products because it's our economic incentive is unfounded.

Something I read recently is that women are better looking than men just because they work harder at it -- obviously including beauty products and services.

Yes, a lot of being your best beautiful self is how much you care enough to work at it.
