The industry of keeping young and beautiful is one money making industry and it doesn’t look like its going to be slowing down any time soon.
The global market is approx £180 billion per year.
Like everyone else I want my hair nice, I want my make up and stuff and to make the best of myself.
I was very fortunate to be brought up in an era where you made the best of what you had, you learnt what your best features were and that is what you concentrated on as cosmetic surgery was just not around.
The only cosmetic procedures back then were done on those who genuinely needed it because of disfigurement.
So there was no point stressing if your nose was a little crooked as now’t could be done, if your wore glasses (and boys didn’t make passes at girls who wore glasses) it was 1994+ before contact lenses became affordable so again you had no choice you either went about blind or wore your glasses but it was ok because we all had things that we didn’t like but we accepted as we couldn’t change it.
I don’t ever recall any of my friends crying or stressing about anything that was physically wrong as regards looks because what was the point it wasn’t going to be changed.
What tits god give us we dealt with, the only people who had cosmetic tit surgery were mainly reductions because of health issues but an actual boob job not a chance any money was spent on those who had suffered breast cancer and needed the resources.
For my friends who had pert smaller breasts chicken fillets was the way to go.
Its wonderful the advances that have been made and the choices people have to fix themselves but deep down do I really believe that?
What I do see is people spending money taking risks to there health just to get a certain look and I don’t actually see there lives being any better.
So many good looking people are still single and seem to think if they change what ever defect/flaw they have they will find the elusive one.
Of course many do make the changes for themselves.
Why is it so hard for people to accept themselves and others flaws and all and making the best of what they have without having to resort to invasive procedures/surgery to enhance what they already have.
Shame that we maybe entering a time of wonderful change but on a human level the changes don’t seem to be enhancing society.
