This saying is correct because what one individual considers beautiful is not necessarily what another individual may consider beautiful. Someone “beautiful on the outside” can be “ugly inside”. The media and the society are constantly using the conception of “beauty” to show us what we should strive to be. They assert that we have to appear a certain way to be viewed as beautiful. This is wrong, so what is beauty, really, and what different ways of looking at beauty are there?
Perhaps the biggest issue in defining beauty is deciding whether it is an objective definition applicable to all people or whether it is subjective to individual opinions. Some aspects of beauty can be objective, as it would be strange for someone to deny the magnificence of a bold sunset or a sky filled with stars. In contrast, it is wrong to assume beauty is always objective. David Hume claims, “Beauty is no quality in things themselves: It exists merely in the mind which contemplates them; and each mind perceives a different beauty” (Sartwell). ... ... middle of paper ... ... study reports, “Although all women rate certain inner qualities as very important to making a woman beautiful, women in Italy and Brazil in particular place greater value than those in other countries in physical appearance, facial and skin appearance, and body weight and shape in defining a woman’s beauty” (Etcoff et al.).
Society makes it out to be a perfect model or celebrity that no one can compare to. In order to understand why beauty is not a universal idea, one must know what beauty is, what each culture perceives as beauty, and the misperception society gives people. One’s idea of beauty should be based on his or her own cultural perceptions, reminding one that society, media, or any other source cannot define a universal idea of the art of beauty. Humans all want to be noticed and admired by that special someone. They also have the tendency to envy or want to be envied by others.
Pop culture has manipulated society into thinking that beauty is having a perfect facial structure, a slender body type, and flawless skin. While possessing these particular features is fine, it just isn't realistic. People tend to use cosmetics or cosmetic surgery to enhance the beauty of their facial structure. Females also have a desire to have a beautiful body type which pretty much means to be slim. Lastly in the black community I've noticed that there's an issue with shades of skin.
Unfortunately, it is becoming accepted that society should indeed look like television actors. There is essentially no one in this medium saying that it is okay to be oneself, to look how women want to look and feel good at the same time. What society must do is tell the beauty industry, tell the magazines, and tell Hollywood that what they are doing is not acceptable. The image they portray is unrealistic, unhealthy, and irresponsible. However, it is unlikely that the beauty industry will loosen its grip on the minds of women and try so hard to make them think they are ugly.
Why is it that we are attracted to some people and not attracted to others? The well-known phrase, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” may hold some truth. Perception dictates how we view everything. People’s views are gained through experience and the environment in which they live. With that being said, our ideal depiction of beauty may slightly differ because no two people experience the same things in life, but aspects as to what people find attractive overlap.
The fact that no one is perfect even though some may think they are causes adaptation of the flaws someone has. Make your own beauty is the final statement by the “Own your own Look” passage. The passage can be translated into a basic beauty is what you think it is statement and it holds true for people that do not succumb to the pressure of modern beauty. “They tend to stay away from socialization, because they feel that they are not thin enough and therefore rejected by society and they deny the fact that they are suffering from anything” sadly this is a description of anorexia by the website “soberrecovery.com”.

The Key To Your Success “Beauty is more than a pretty face, its about having a pretty mind, pretty heart, and most important a pretty soul.” Isnt that a beautiful, naive thought? My first question for the author of this quote would be, how do you expect me to present my pretty soul during an interview or on a resume? You can 't.

To have good social and interpersonal interactions, the essential factor is physical attractiveness (Patel, Utpal, and Rebecca, par.1). Of course, inner beauty is necessary, but most people would not want to understand and know others deeply who are unattractive or give an unpleasant first impression. For example, I am one of those people who choose their friends by their good looks, and I would say even though some of my friends are plain, none of them would be categorized as homely. In fact, attractive people can have more benefits and positive outcomes than plain or unattractive people in interpersonal relationships.
