The Beauty is Pain rule
Pierre-Auguste Renoir once said: “The pain passes, but the beauty remains.”
There are things that are very uncomfortable and sometimes painful that we have to endure to look more adorable, (Even though, you are such an adorable person anyway!) like working out, or plucking our eyebrows. Though these are painful and uncomfortable, the pain is temporary and only last for a short amount of time, giving off good results afterwards. However, there are certain trends that are not only painful, but detrimental to us.
In an article in a Women’s Health magazine (September, 2009) issue, entitled “Killer Fashion Trends” PhD, Bob Emery, an associate professor of occupational health at the Univeristy of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Johanna Youner, a New York City podiatrist, Dr. Elizabether Kavaler, a uriologist, and John Canady, a plastic surgery professor at the University of Iowa, gave the writer, Dennie Hughes, reasons why we should amend some of our favorite fashion trends.
From “Sky-High Stilettos” (they can lead to pinched nerves, hammertoes, bunions and sprained ankles), to “Skin-Tight Jeans” (which can lead to yeast infections and urinary problems), oversized bags (where the extra weight on one side restricts the flow of blood causing muscle strain), and “oversized earrings” that can cause your lobes to tear.
Beauty is great, but when the pain becomes detrimental to your health, that’s when that rule should be broken, or at least amended (like wearing shorter heals, or not wearing too high heels every day, or skinny jeans with a fabric that breathes, or wearing your favorite door knockers for shorter periods of time).
