Beauty has differed through time, different cultures and perceptions of the world. It’s not easy to define beauty, you could say that there are “a thousand” definitions of beauty. And there are numerous degrees of each. “Beauty depends on the eye of the beholder”. According to me, 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 look like. 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? The media and the norms of our society have brought new meanings to the concept “beauty”, and not good ones. Thanks to the media, beauty is something that is practically impossible to achieve. Almost everyone uses some type of social network, take Facebook for an example, they have worldwide, over 1.79 billion monthly active users. Therefore, it’s very hard for the people to catch a break without being a victim to the slaughter that the media has made out of beauty. The standards that the media has set for both sexes are out of this universe in particular women. Women need to fit into a certain size of clothes to be considered normal. Women should not have to worry about some stupid number to be called beautiful.
