So, this might be a bit of an overstatement, but yes, beauty dominates the world. I’m not saying there’s a dictator who is going to make sure everyone looks absolutely fabulous (which would actually be really amazing). The reason beauty dominates the world is that it is now one of the most influential and most popular industries one the planet.
I mean think about it, pretty much anywhere you look, you will find some kind of trace of the beauty industry in it. Is one of your favorite politicians running for office? Well, you can be sure that they have undergone certain kinds of beauty treatments, to make sure they look good in the eyes of the public. Favorite film star giving an interview? You can probably bet everything you’ve ever owned, that they’ve probably been through many different beauty treatments and procedures to make them look screen worthy, even if it is for just an interview.
This makes sense. People have to look appealing. It’s a very important part of our modern world. Now keep in mind; when we say beauty, we don’t just mean procedures and treatments that require surgical procedures, like nose jobs or something. Beauty treatments also range from small skin care, like creams and masks, to healthy assortment of fat under the skin.
So, it’s not really a matter of how pretty your face looks; and more of a matter of how much you take care of it.
But how did the beauty industry get to where it is? Why is it so important to everyone? Well, there are several reasons to this.
Looks Do Matter
While nowadays the popular opinion does go against the beauty industry, with people leaning more towards reaching that ideal look without extra make up or other beauty procedures, but regardless of what philosophy or opinion is of the beauty industry, you still have to accept the fact that looks do make a difference.
You’ve probably had good first impressions. You’ve also probably had many bad first impressions. You’ve also probably left some bad first impressions. It’s normal, everyone does this. Nothing to worry about.
But in case you do want to stop leaving bad impressions, one of the things you want to do is to show that you do actually take care of yourself. If you show others that you care about your looks, it will resonate well with other people.
And while I’m sure you’re not after impressing others by your looks, you still must understand that many prospects can open up for you, if you do look nice and taken care of.
Just imagine if your favorite politician must give a speech, but he comes out on stage, in front of the podium, his hair all messy, his clothes are all ruffled and worst of all, he looks like he’s just been through a week long hangover. You probably wouldn’t trust him as your politician. You probably wouldn’t trust him as your anything really.
Everyone Gets It, Even You
Yes, there’s never been a time when skin, face and other beauty treatments have ever been more accessible. Nowadays, almost everyone can find some way to take care of themselves. And since everyone has access to it, it means that it plays a more important role in our lives than ever before.
In terms of supply, you can find many different beauty products, each varying in their quality, effect and price in pretty much most stores. Specialized stores sell even more specialized products, which are designed for more specific tasks and effects.
As for more complicated beauty care, such as different procedures and treatments, which require a specialist and different tools, there are a plethora of clinics, each with their own specializations, different styles of procedures, and treatment methods.
Best of all, most of them are pretty accessible in terms of price as well. With the advancement in technology, the constant development and streamlining means that it is no longer so costly to conduct these procedures, which in turn means that the price also subsides. Nowadays, you can get many different beauty procedures for the fraction of the price you would have gotten for one procedure several years ago.
It’s Healthy in Its Own Way
Yes, as stated before, the beauty industry does have its hand to play in healthy lifestyle. Keep in mind, before anything else, most beauty treatments are approved by the FDA, which means they’re absolutely safe and you shouldn’t be worried about them in any way.
But there is another benefit to beauty treatments.
We should all feel comfortable in our skins and in our bodies. This is ideal, since you need that confidence in yourself as you live through different events that may challenge your perception of who you are.
More often than not, people feel insecure about their bodies, faces and skin. They try to hide these things, but it’s still something that keep bothering them in the back of their minds. This is absolutely natural and happens to pretty much everyone.
There is a way of fixing this however, through learning how to feel confident in your own body and accepting yourself for who you are and how you look.
However, for the things that you may still feel insecure about, science has given a way out. If there are things that cause you to feel discomfort in your own body, they can be changed. But not simply changed to the way others think you should be, but to what you want to see on yourself. That’s the beauty of the beauty industry. It’s not about how other people see you, but rather, how you see yourself.
That is why it’s so successful. It’s such an important part of our lives, as it dictates how confident we are in our own bodies, how comfortable we feel when we look in the mirror.
While it is often important to make sure you understand how others feel about you, nevertheless, the most important opinion of yourself is your own.
