Is it true that pain is beauty?
Does a new face come with a warranty?
Will a pretty face make it better?

Mrs. Potato Head- Melanie Martinez

When you hear the word "Beauty", what is the first thing that pops up in your head?

Women all throughout the world have their own interpretations of beauty and its actual meaning. Not every woman adores her body, and not every woman has the ideal physical look. In today's society, many women believe that having narrow hips, a large butt, clear skin and a seductive figure is the ultimate definition of beauty. It's been compared to the replication of a Barbie doll by others. In someone's eyes, everyone is attractive, but more women are concerned with their own personal vision of beauty. Many women want to look like the women they see on screen or in the media. People mistakenly believe that this is how everyone in today's culture views beauty's potential, however it is not. Women experience pressure, body dissatisfaction, and eating disorders as a result of the impossible-to-achieve standard of beauty.

Art, the sky, the ocean, people, and even you. You're beautiful and everything has its beauty. But, is it true that pain is beauty? We are in a new generation where everything revolves around technology. We've seen people doing surgery on themselves, buying expensive products for the sake of beauty, and it's okay because we see them satisfied and happy with the outcome of what they've become. "Let them do things they like as long as they're not hurting anyone." But the question is, are we sure that we're really not hurting anyone? The lipsticks, foundation, and all the make-up products that we bought and use for ourselves. How sure are we that those products aren't hurting any living creatures?

For us, pain is never permanent, but for animals, it kills them. Before we use the products and cosmetics that we apply to our faces, animals, especially rabbits, are the ones who will be sacrificed in exchange for our beauty. More than 100 million are bred, utilized, and discarded as hazardous trash each year as a result of research and product testing all across the world. Millions of animals are used, abused, and used without the use of any anesthesia. They put toxic and hazardous materials on them. They put them on their eyes and bodies, and they were also forced to inhale them. It's so sad to think that millions of animals are killed every day just for our pleasure and self satisfaction.

That is why let's all be mindful of the cosmetic products that we consume and use. It's better to buy friendly cosmetic products and brands that do not test animals for their products. In that small way, we help lessen the numbers of those other animals that were sacrificed everyday.

Is this really the definition of "Pain is Beauty"? Beauty for us, but pain for animals.

Animals traded their beauty just for us.

nowadays what they recognize as beautiful is the external appearance as I grew up always being ridiculed because of my external appearance but even so instead of retaliating against them I chose to remain silent and just prayed that they would realize that their judgment was wrong and based on only in outward appearance.

If someone wishes animal cruelty to stop, then he/she should not support brands that test their products on animals. And as for me, beauty is pain. Beauty standards change now and then, and it puts so much pressure on the women who haven't even find beauty in them.

That's actually so sad. Disregarding animals' life just for testing things to 'beautify' humans.

I'm actually curious, how do you find 'friendly' cosmetic products? Did they advertise it or something?

I said it before and I'm gonna said it again. Most people love to see others without a thick foundation in their faces. It's more lovely seeing that way. Kawawa po ung mga animals na ginagawang guinea pig for the sake of beauty.

truee. With or without make ups, we're all beautiful. But we couldn't deny the fact that cosmetic products really help boost someone's self confidence. And the sad cost is that, millions of animals will be sacrificed in exchange for our beauty

This is the reality now, nakaka lungkot pero kinakasangkapan nalang nola ang mga animals para sa mga experiment na iyan. Bat ganon ano, wala bang ibang way. Ang ganda ng kasuotan mo, mamahalin nakadagdag sa confidence mo. Pero di mo alam isang nilalang ang nawala para sa magandang kasuotan na iyan. Tapos yang mga lipstick pa. Alam mo mas human pa ang mga hayop kesa sa totoong tao 🤕

Oh no, all these pics killed me :( .. I definitely agree to this, beauty is painful, not just animals, i had a friend who looked like a supermodel even in 10th grade, everybody used to focus on her, women men girls boys all... she used t be uncomfy all the time,.. many times she told me she wished to be normal.. it used to make me feel bad for her... beauty is awesome but comes with so many challenges

Hindi ako nagamit ng beauty products. Hindi ako masyadong guilty. Pero nakakakonsensiya pa din na totoong mangyayari ang ganyan. Tho, it's not about that alone. Halos karamihan especially mga gamot or say vaccine, sila din ang pinagpapraktisan.

Humans are on top of food chain, that's the reason why humans are the highest form of animal that can think and make own decisions. Humans are too powerful that they can easily dominates other animals, tp the point that they can manipulate and kill it without hesitation. I don't know how far can human act like Gods, this world is totally dominated by cruel humans.
