This morning as I was putting on my make up and getting ready for work, I realized how much cosmetic products I have in my bathroom cabinet. Just a few years ago, I only have one bottle of moisturizer with me. Now, I have full bag of make up kits, exfoliation,face mask, toner, eye cream…etc. It seems like as woman gets older,the number of cosmetic and skin care products they use increase as well. Why are we doing this? Is it just to fulfill our vanity, or to please our husband/boyfriends so they would stay interested in us?
From the beginning of man kind, women and beauty seemed to be written in an equal sign. Women have the natural instincts of learning how to dress themselves up and stay as young as possible.Especially nowadays, society values beauty more than ever. You see all those commercials with beautiful young women, giving people the idea that youth and beauty are the most precious thing in the world. Lots of women would spend thousands of dollars fixing themselves just to chase the dream of being a beauty queen.
Having said all that, I know I cannot escape the trap either. I know I would still go home putting on my face mask and wear makeup whenever I go out. It was just an interesting society phenomenon that we need to think about. What if the situation are reversed today?What if it’s men’s turn to chase beauty? What an interesting sight it would be!
