People, religions, countries, and more have different views on how beauty is and looks like,
There are countries, such as, Asia, Africa and the U.S.A who have different point of view's on beauty.
To some, beauty is fun yet important to society and even to some beliefs and countries. Beauty can
become dangerous to people's health, emotionally and physically. Beauty helps make men, women,
young and old feel good when they dress up, put make-up on and have good hygiene.
Beauty can be an inspiration towards countries, people and beliefs. There are cultures suck as
the Zimbabwe, Chinese, and American culture. The Zimbabwe's have their own views on beauty. In the

For America it went through changes of style almost decade to decade. “The 1990's have been

school who ate all the cheeseburgers and milkshakes they wanted and didn't gain an ounce. Basically,
they're hangers for clothes.” Most people seem to think that the ideal body type is super skinny.
Beyond that beauty is also inspirational. Many can be inspired by beauty. IN a way it can help
bring out the inner them. It can help animate them a little more than words can say. People experience
new ideas with hairstyles, clothes, make-up, etc.
