According to Hesiod at the wedding of Cadmus and Harmony in Thebes, the Muses sang some verses to honor the bride and the groom – a catchy refrain, which the Gods immediately picked up: “Only that which is beautiful is loved, that which is not beautiful is not loved.” The Delphic Oracle related beauty to another quality: “The most beautiful is the justest.” The irresistible beauty of Helen of Troy saves her from the rage of Menelaus who wanted to punish his unfaithful spouse for the destruction of Troy, but his sword became paralyzed at the view of her beautiful naked breasts. While some philosophers are notoriously ugly like Socrates – they seem to shine with inner Beauty. What is common in all objects and personalities considered beautiful is that they please the soul well: they satisfy our aesthetic needs.
Beauty and Culture
All around the world people suffer from different standards for beauty. Some love their hair long, some shave it, some like their necks long, or their feet small, some are attracted by scars, or by huge, fat women. Some have terrible fetishes such as stretched earlobes, or tattooed lips… It is frightening to discover what various cultures find sexy and what they are ready to do about it. Perhaps the worst cosmetic technology is Oharugo – the custom of dying one’s teeth black, which was so popular among married women in Japan until the Meiji era.
However, we will simplify the things by examining Beauty in the Cosmopolitan sense.
Attractive lips, lovely eyes, a gentle waist, beautiful hair –is that it? Or beauty is simply the reality seen with the eyes of love?
What must one do, if they would like to feel pretty, but they do not have regular features? Be certain that there are beautiful girls, without a perfect body. Like Pippi Longstocking – you have to love your freckles.
If you want to be really attractive – invest time and effort in your appearance. Treat yourself with love and reverence, eat the right food, move on a regular basis – and if you are persistent – you will receive results. Behave like Cleopatra – she did not shine with her looks, but her elegance and her daily personal care routine were exclusive.
For your beauty routine, you are in need of bottles with potions. Here is a short list of what you need to obtain: essential oils, masks for face and neck, perfumes, hair products like shampoos and conditioners, body products such as creams and shower gels.
For the perfect makeup, you need the following products: primer, foundation, concealer, powder, bronzer, blush, contour, highlighter, setting spray, eye primer, eyeshadow palettes, mascara, and eyeliner.
Most essential for your looks remain your dietary and exercise habits.
Our genetics, hormones, stress, diet and environment often create issues with our beauty such as acne. Acne can be fought with the following natural treatments: aloe vera, apple cider vinegar, argan oil, castor oil, coconut oil, olive oil, sea salt and plenty of others. Among the foods which are wonderful for the face are tea, olive oil, cucumber, lemon, tomato, orange, potatoes, apricots, avocados, ginger, milk, turmeric, sugar, cherries, honey, eggs, and papaya. Another hated issue with skin is cellulite: for a cellulite-free butt and legs, you have to exercise. You must avoid eating toxic snacks. There are beauty hacks for dandruff, yellow teeth, and double chin…making yourself beautiful is a hard, strenuous task for some – but it is worth it!
