Philosophers have been trying to define beauty for centuries. What is the role of beauty in modern society? We are bombarded with airbrushed images of ‘perfect’ bodies and faces which can make people feel inferior and stressed. Ultimately if we are healthy and happy on the inside we tend to have a positive perception of ourselves. We often instinctively gravitate to beauty and look upon it with pleasure. However aiming for physical perfection can be unrealistic and unhealthy. Making the best of what we have, and appreciating our good points, ultimately makes us happier. When we feel beautiful it has a positive effect inside as well as having the ability to make us feel confident and happy.
