BEAUTY AND SKIN CARE
7.1 UNDERSTAND BEAUTY AND IT´S CARE:
Ornament on the body often appears beautiful not because that ornament is beautiful but because person's body is beautiful.
Normal beauty is because of good health & not because of cosmetics. Maintain beauty with medical help of doctors. Non-medical help nonscientific so cheaper but it turns out costlier in long run.
Beauty is not only skin deep but also fat deep, muscle deep bone deep, mind deep & spirit deep.
There is not a single standard of beauty by which everybody can be compared. Racial difference exists. So, skin texture, internal support structures and various body features varies.Social acceptance of these particular factors decides peculiar features & standards of beauty in that particular ethnic group. Proportions of facial features change as our age increases. Things appear beautiful if proportion of breadth to height is 1:67.
Aging changes affect beauty:
Shrinkage of facial bone and changes in shape of the face makes the people look older. Effects of aging lead to reduction of bone volume or change of shape of bone and reduction in tissue volume of face. These changes further create wrinkles. So, body tissue resolves, shrinks and leaves empty space. With increase of age, skin losses its elasticity. So tissue around these spaces become loose. Women tend to loose facial bone at a younger age. So, as time marches on it often affects across our faces.
Most of us realize of loss of beauty only when it is lost beyond certain limited. Everybody of us ages slowly everyday. We do not notice such very minor loss of beauty for initial ten years during young age. After some months or years, we incidentally & suddenly realize loss of quality of beauty. It is often others who brought to our notice such loss. Tricky comments by others about our beauty often harm our mind or make us extra alert.
Due to effect of gravity and ageing process tissues of the face shift down ward. So nasolibial fold and other wrinkles on the face increase.

If your beauty problem do not improve with non medical treatment, particularly within two weeks or it recurs again, it means you need medical cosmetic treatment.

Habit of taking fast food, junk food, fried food, processed food, canned food / drink, food with added flavors & chemicals slowly poison your beauty.

Health & Beauty:
Realise true nature of Beauty. Beauty and health are never permanent and so need maintenance care. Health supports beauty. Beauty needs care & maintenance. Beauty is nature's gift.

Positive attitude, positive thoughts, positive creative work, positive psychological base, mental balance, faith and patience, help to maintain beauty of body & life. Because of all these positive factors all things appear beautiful.
Maintain feeling of satisfaction with whatever happens in life and social life (including family). Be ready for mental perspiration by good handling of emotions and ego. So persons of the all the age should try to improve one's own beauty irrespective of age. But one should keep low expectation because of limitations of quality of health, lifestyle, habits. Otherwise one feels frustrated & unhappy. In such situation people prefer nonmedical ways or they may prefer negligence in adopting right ways of maintaining beauty. Non scientific & non medical procedures do not improve health & true beauty of the skin.
Prolonging quality and status of beauty:
Beauty tends to be of short period if its maintenance care & health status is neglected. As mentioned above, no beauty in this world is stable. But it can be stabilized by taking preventive care and cosmetic laser medical treatment. It needs co-operation of the individual with himself / herself to make changes in own life style, habits, diet & environment. Take maintenance laser facial instead of doing such change in them, they rather try to depend on external factors & treatment modalities.
Replace, restore & regenerate: Three principles of beauty restoration & rejuvenation on the skin & the body.

They rarely face problems of consumer court. Their advertises act though principle of mass hypnosis.

Why people develop flaws on face even at young age & even after using cosmetics?
Young people are more exposed to sunlight as compared to older counter parts. Often they do not follow dictums of medical skin care & sun protection. Their food habits (and life style habits) are often unnatural & wrong. Acne, acnes scars acne uneven tone of the skin dark spots on the skin are initially neglected & managed by self use of advertised cosmetic products & self medication.
Persons use cosmetic & other preparations without consulting doctors for years together Many of us start cosmetic medical treatment late. So also people tend to take treatment at centre where staff and interior decoration is attractive but non medical people advise cosmetic medical treatment or where cosmetic & laser technology is of low quality or machine is less effective but cost of treatment is more. Often problems are undertreated or wrongly treated. So they tend to give incomplete treatment or do not keep enough follow up.
Regular use of costly cosmetic or variety of cosmetics does not mean that you are taking proper & utmost skin care. It means you need to manage skin care under medical supervision.
Thus cosmetic medical problem are mismanaged frequently. So most of us are inproperly treated or mismanaged for cosmetic medical flaws on the face. When person takes cosmetic treatment he/she tends to assess response to treatment on the basis of comments made by others. So decisions in taking follow up treatment are wrong.
Treatment of beauty problem is often not encouraged by others unless its eradication is genuine. e.g. problems of beauty in girl of marriageable age, Base of maintenance and improvement of beauty should be medical. Most of people use non medical ways to maintain and improve beauty.
