price of beauty
watched this show with jessica simpson called the price of beauty where she goes to different cultures to discover their definitions and beauty practices. all in an attempt to help her understand her own love/hate relationship with what is beautiful. there's a group of people in thailand who elongate their necks with heavy rings, which they must never take off. some people eat fried insects to speed their metabolism. pale skin is considered better than tan skin so, some products contain skin bleach that can forever spot the skin. is our culture no different with our tanning practices and the old corsets that changed our insides? it makes me wonder why women all over the world for centuries have to buy into all this self loathing instead of self acceptance?
