So you think you know what Beauty is? Instead I think we should ask WHAT IS REAL BEAUTY? WHO DETERMINES WHAT REAL BEAUTY IS?
Do you subscribe to the notion that being beautiful means being thin, or having high cheek bones and terribly defined collarbones? Does being beautiful, to you, mean donning skimpy outfits and looking like a million bucks in them? Or does being beautiful mean looking like a plastic doll, decked up in the finest of jewels and clothes?
70% of women get depressed after looking at fashion magazines
A majority of women would give up 5 yrs of their lives to look different
American women spend $40 billion on beauty products and about 2 billion on hair products
Americans spend $10Billion per year on beauty products, and much more if you count personal grooming products. If you focus on core beauty products, such as those at http://www.russellorganics.com that include cleansers, toners, and moisturizers then the answer is $10Billion. If you focus on over all beauty such as skin care, hair care, etc such as http://www.spaskin.com then the answer is much higher.
Asian women pay money to make their eyes look rounder
Accented people use their “Greek status” to describe perfect beauty and use it as a yardstick to measure perfect beauty
African women decide between good hair and bad hair and to them straight hair is good!
Japanese women put steel in their legs to make them look taller because tall is “beautiful”
Most Jordanian women have gone through plastic surgery
Girls starve themselves to death to look like models
And here’s the didactic quotient to all this.
Do women in the world realize what it takes to make those women look good in magazines?
Do they know how many people worked on them to make them look good?
Do they know of the hormone shots that are injected under eyes to make the puffiness go?
Do they know of the duct-tapes that adhere to their bodies to keep clothes in place to make them look perfect?
Or do they know of the use of Photoshop to remove any scars and blemishes in the skin?
So, who decides what perfect beauty is?
Here’s the simple answer.
You, by smiling and being cheerful, are beautiful.
You, by loving, caring and sharing, are beautiful.
You, by doing good, are beautiful.
You, by spreading happiness, are beautiful.
You, by lending a helping hand, are beautiful.
You, by JUST BEING WHO YOU ARE, are beautiful.
LOVE YOUR SELF, DON’T TRY TO BE SOMEONE ELSE! IF GOD WANTED TO MAKE U LOOK DIFFERENT HE WOULD HAVE MADE YOU SO.
