1. People are spending more and more money on cosmetics or even cosmetic surgeries. What do you think of it?
The increased emphasis on looks theses days has caused the booming of both cosmetics industry and cosmetic surgery. People look at it from different angles. Some feel it is natural for human beings to pursue beauty. They, especially women, do this either for pleasing others or for obtaining confidence. It has been proved that one’s appearance counts a lot in getting a job, looking for a partner, and even asking for help. A better outlook attracts more people’s attention and gains a person more opportunities. That’s why advertisements carry various beautiful women’s pictures. It makes the products sell better and faster. But does appearance mean everything? The answer is still true: Real beauty comes from within. The better people know themselves, and the more satisfied they are, the more attractive they look. They shouldn’t base self-esteem on external approval or blame media images of beauty for their anxiety about their outlooks. They need to develop more inner resources instead of worrying about their appearance.
