I've bottomed out!

According to a new Gallup poll, "Older Americans Feel Best About Their Physical Appearance." 

If you look closely at the chart above, men's confidence in their physical appearance reaches its nadir at age 55. So after turning 56 this week, I feel better-looking already!

The report offers some caution, though (my emphasis):

This study did not include a measure of the actual physical attractiveness of the respondents, so there is no way to judge the relationship between Americans' confidence in their physical appearance and how others regard them. However, older Americans' looks are generally out of sync with the youthful standard of beauty that prevails in American culture, and yet they are most happy with what they see in the mirror. Perhaps it will come as a relief to many who toil over minute details of their appearance that they could become happier with their looks in years to come.

Bald is beautiful, baby!
