Using self-objectification theory we investigated variables that predict engagement in risky appearance management behaviors among female college students. We found self-objectification was related to engagement in risky appearance management behaviors. Interaction about appearance with friends and family members was also related to engagement in risky appearance management behaviors. Both beliefs about appearance and internalization of appearance ideals were influences on self-objectification.
