Beauty Defined

The findings at the beauty survey from ALLURE.COM was an interesting read. It seems we are strongly opinionated about beauty, women AND men. Everyone has their own definition thus the saying "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." Let's see the what the poll findings were for:

Curves: Mixed feelings on this one. Although most women want narrower hips (85%), many agree that a curvier body is more appealing (73%).

Workout: How many of us are battling the bulge? Our tummies are the target -- we want it toned and flat! Enough said!

Aging: The thought of aging gracefully is so yesteryear. These days, the market is flooded with anti-aging products and many people are open to a little nip/tuck. The pressure of aging is greater than it's ever been for both sexes.

Confidence: I think it's the best accessory. Studies show that brown girls wear it well. Supposedly, when asked about personal attractiveness, African American women were three times more likely as Caucasian women to rate themselves at the hot end of the spectrum. Really?
