Cost of Beauty

I saw a commercial that was brief but discussed the cost of beauty.  Have you ever thought about it?  Of course, when we first think of the cost of beauty, we calculate in our minds the costs of all beauty products.  For example, we might buy expensive shampoo, conditioner, make-up, special products to thicken our hair, various supplements that claim instant beauty and so much more.  There is another side to beauty.  The most import part is building confidence in young girls and even boys. Many children are harassed in school because of their appearance.  It is not just about clothes. We are all different but the same.  There are individuals who are more pleasing to look at than others.  The children, teens and adults who are criticized for their facial structure, physique, hair, and even spots or pimples shouldn’t be taunted.  Just because one person has thick hair and another has thin doesn’t make any difference.  I like how people all look differently.  It gives us the opportunity to appreciate them rather than even consider criticizing them. For example, the use of plastic surgery is now quite common, not only for the rich and famous, but for the younger females.  They may dislike their appearance and have the parents who are willing to pay for the changes. Many young girls and women turn to anorexia because they see all the celebrates who are cited as beautiful because they are thin. It just doesn’t matter yet these females see the magazines, TV shows, plus commercials stating how perfect these women are.  Yet they aren’t really.  The sad part of starving one’s self is that it causes many health issues.  There was an episode on “Full House” in which DJ starved herself because she wanted to look like the glamorous cover girls on the fashion magazines.  It took  a bit of work, but her father, Danny, convinced her that she was beautiful just the way she looked without any changes.  The cost of beauty really is quite high.  Do you agree?
