I used to think I was ugly, but then I stopped using most makeup and skin are products and simplified how I took care of myself. I think now at 28 I look incredibly better (and younger!) than I did at 22.

Moral of the story: beauty does not always = :)

The beauty industry preys on a woman's insecurities - women are insecure because so many shallow people judge them first and foremost on their looks.

I think the more obsessed a person is with their looks, the more unhappy they are since they are never pretty enough.

Teresa...nobody is ugly. It is amazing...during my teens I was fat,,,and yet I had all kinds of dates,,,I never sat home. People would look at my photos and would make comments that told me they were surprised that I looked so good in my photos. It is amazing what the camera captures.. Many women who think they don't look so good - aren't seen by others in the manner they are seen by themselves. If you practice loving yourself more...and wearing a smile on your face...it will change your attitude. I looked better at 47 than I did at 17.

Nichole, how old are you? Twelve? Well, if so, at that age I was also idealistic enough to think that beauty didn't matter. It does! An ugly woman won't even get a good job if the recruiter is a man!
