If you have been reading my blog for a while, you probably realize I am not a big fan of the Beauty Industry. It is not that I am against many of the products. I’m just against the entire multi-billion dollar machine that tells women they aren’t good enough unless they use these products.
I’m against women being told they must color their hair or hide their wrinkles or paint their faces or wear certain clothes or lose weight – in order to be beautiful.
I’m against any activity that pits women against women in a contest to see who is more beautiful. I’m against all the money that is spent on glossy advertisements that sell a dream that is unrealistic and unattainable. I’m against skinny models and botox and fad diets. I’m against child beauty pageants, the catty world of tabloid magazines and touched up photos in print media. I’m against idolizing movie stars, and… well, you get the idea. Feel free to add your own observations about how women are made to feel inferior if they don’t conform to a set of standards.
Oh, and I’m not all that happy either with the people who found my blog because they typed in these search terms:
- are there medical research on how to get rid of grey hair
- picture of someone who looks older than their age due to stress
But, I suppose they weren’t all that happy when they found my blog, either, so I guess we are even…
