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?
As the words of Confucius, “Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it” (Levin, 2013). In other words, if society define the meaning of beauty or said one thing is beautiful does not mean it is correct. Everyone have they own define of beauty and it depend on themselves. Besides, there are many theory of beauty that have great influence in our society. However, the most influence of theory does not mean it is right unless we accept and let it be.
Beauty is defined as any object or person being physically attractive regardless of what is in the inside. Over time the standards of beauty have changed ranging from being blonde and blued eyed to having curves in all the right places. Beauty can never be given but instead earned. The innocence of a human being creates beauty opposed to the popular opinion of physical appearance creating it. As humans we judge each other based on physical beauty rather than one’s innocence in order to fit in and be accepted but beauty is not what is on the outside but rather the qualities which one displays.
With an overwhelming amount of viewers and participants, it seems to be an important organization in the international realm that is often overlooked because of the stigma surrounding beauty pageants and what they stand for. However, analyzing the pageants, the participants, and countries that participate, it seems that international beauty competitions are more than just a spectacle of beautiful people to be judged. To be clear, this paper is looking at specific credible pageants, and is in no way claiming the same to be true for children’s pageants or other types of pageants. The research that has been done concerning beauty pageants remains to be dominatingly one sided and negative. While there is no denying that beauty pageants still contain some negative aspects, it is important to identify the positive ones as well.
The outer beauty comes from a different source than the inner beauty. Outer beauty is based on genetics, while inner beauty is based on the way in which a person thinks and views things. Our outer beauty does not reflect our inner beauty nor is vice versa true (Osho, 2018). There have been cases in which our inner beauty is so great and beautiful that it begins to light out from our inner body. Our outer beauty may not be beautiful, but the light that comes from the inside will make even a body which is not beautiful in the ordinary sense appear beautiful.
The world needs to move away from the modern concept of attractiveness, and move towards a healthier and more realistic portrayal of beauty. In the words of Cara Delevingne, “It’s exhausting to be told what beauty should look like. I am tired of society defining beauty for us. Strip away the clothes, wipe off the makeup, cut off the hair. Remove all the material possessions.” We need to let go of the current criteria for beauty.
The media portrays these unrealistic standards to men and women of how women should look, which suggests that their natural face is not good enough. Unrealistic standards for beauty created by the media is detrimental to girls’ self-esteem because it makes women feel constant external pressure to achieve the “ideal look”, which indicates that their natural appearance is inadequate. There has been an increasing number of women that are dissatisfied with themselves due to constant external pressure to look perfect. YWCA’s “Beauty at Any Cost” discusses this in their article saying that, “The pressure to achieve unrealistic physical beauty is an undercurrent in the lives of virtually all women in the United States, and its steady drumbeat is wreaking havoc on women in ways that far exceed the bounds of their physical selves” (YWCA). Being surrounded by society’s definitions of beauty has definitely taken a toll on American women’s confidence.
In the end it is an advertisement with the aim of selling a product not to show us real life situations. Feminists have been much concerned about the importance of appearances, particularly within womans lives. Many feminist writers have argued that how a woman looks largely determines how other people react to her. Considerable empirical evidence supports the view that women are judged by their beauty. When a man asks, ‘’What is she like?’’ what he usually means is ‘’ What does she look like?’’ (1) Beautiful people, men and women, are an especially favoured race.
Beauty isn’t something that should be defined since everyone has their own perspective of beauty, when beauty is defined many will be pressured in reaching that definition of beauty. Women shouldn’t go thru such mental and physical problems in order to reach the expectations of society in regard to a perfect body
People who use online platforms are not really fan of having advertisements pop up on their screen every five to ten minutes. For this specific reason, many people have taken the help of software that blocks advertisements on the Internet. This software are known as ad blockers and they help in blocking most of the ads online on diverse sites, either accessed through a mobile phone or through a personal computer. Advertisements that are shown online are known as digital advertising. Digital advertising is more or less on the point of becoming extinct due to the fact that people have opted for ad-blockers online in order to get rid of any kind of advertisements.
