To Look Good Or to Be Good? Holding (But Hiding) Viceful Motivations For Health Goals

Consumers feel that appearance motivations are less virtuous than other motivations (e.g., mental and physical health) for pursuing health goals. They also feel they should be less driven by physical appearance than they actually are. This self-discrepancy leads them to hide their appearance motivations from others (e.g., on social media).
