Mirror, Mirror, on the wall . . . who’s the fairest of them all?
I’ve never met a female yet who didn’t question her looks in some way or another, myself included! And I seriously doubt that I ever will! There’s no specific look, beauty look or look in general that makes much of a difference or has any importance. But being female is very important, so important that being graded by our looks from a 1 – 10 or even a 12 has its merits!
That’s INSTINCTUAL MERITS I’m referring to!
Puzzled? You should be and with good reason. We think of judging a person’s looks as being shallow, demeaning and superficial but nature has a purpose for giving the human female the need to instinctually judge her looks for merit! So, what is nature’s purpose?
Women are innately bonding emotional beings that physically mate to procreate. The two important words to remember here is Emotional & Physical. So, on a nature-based conscious level how women physical look to themselves provides the emotionally support necessary to bond, mate & if ready, to procreate! What, you think that’s crazy? Well, as far as nature is concerned it’s supremely beneficial! Why?
Physical beauty as we know is in the eye of the beholder and what woman doesn’t mind a compliment from time to time on how pretty or beautiful she looks? But to nature beauty itself is biologically our health and well-being. Much like it is part of our nature to survive it is part of a woman’s nature to be constantly aware of her health and well-being for procreation purposes.
When you see a newborn with a milky white complexion, dark full lashes, blushing pink cheeks, and lips, what you soon realize it’s because it is a healthy baby.
Even men are innately drawn to healthy looking women for fertility reasons.
Just watch any female as she stands in front of a mirror applying:
- Foundation to achieve a flawless complexion,
- Pink shade of lipstick to her lips,
- Light pink blush to her cheeks,
- Mascara to her lashes,
- Hair shine to her wavy hair
What is happening is that instinctually she is enhancing her looks for nature’s idea of beauty! Not for the latest beauty trend!
Oh, and all this time you thought women who wear makeup, stilettos and have long wavy hair were strictly high-maintenance? Think again! The more feminine or girly girl the woman the more instinctually aware she is of her looks and will work harder to earn higher merits!
This innate female pattern of behavior that all women share is quite normal, except for when psychological issues occur, such as Anorexia Nervosa. One’s childhood environment and or social-cultural influences have nothing to do with it! To stereotype these women as nothing more than high-maintenance or any woman for that matter for enhancing her looks is sheer inhuman ignorance.
The reason cosmetic companies, plastic surgery, and beauty spas have existed for hundreds of years is that women are naturally very much aware of their looks. In fact, women are the biggest consumers of beauty products and services around the world. The first cosmetic palettes were invented in Egypt and date back to 5000 BC.
Sadly, as women mature or sometimes after giving birth their nature-based conscious need to be aware of their looks diminishes, which is often why they allow their health and well-being to deteriorate over time. Yet, there are some women who work to prevent losing their good health throughout their lives. I’m proud to say that I happen to be one of them!
