I know that beauty is subjective but there are some things that totally destroy the natural good looks that some lucky people have: - Eye brow plucking - it can make a huge improvement if done well but if overdone, it ages a woman, enhances defects and creates odd facial expressions. Men who do it can look fake and drag queen-like. - Fake tans - anyone seen those orange skinned fakesters? - Smoking - it ages the skin quickly and adds extra frown lines everywhere. - Toasting in the sun - too much sun makes skin leather-like and leaves spots of pigment all over the place - Piercings that look like warts - Tattoos - some look so cool, others just look hideous or ridiculous. - Becoming overweight - from hour glass to barrel shaped thanks to a McDonalds diet and no exercise. - Hairstyles - you just have to watch a makeover TV show to see what a difference a good hairstyle makes - Facial and body hair - trimmers are a great invention :wink: - Plastic surgery - Michael Jackson (need I say more?) - Make up - when it looks like a mask, something's wrong - Extreme weight loss - when somone goes from slim to skinny I often wonder where some people get their "beauty" tips from.
