The Mirror of Beauty

The probe of human mind has marked every inch of success but the art of drawing parallels for what beauty is, has remained a great mystery. For some philosophers, beauty is the degree of attraction and admiration, provoked in an observer. But it is argued that the same beauty does not affect everyone the same way. It varies dramatically. A few think thanks have defined it as a degree of perfection, but perfection in one field may not be of any interest to an observer. So beauty is very difficult to explain fully, but it may be said that it is a game of comparison. Suppose there is only one woman in the world, now question is whether she is beautiful or not. The answer unambiguously is that you can’t say anything because you don’t have another woman to compare with.

The-Mirror-of-Beauty-e1383556319622.jpg (1779×1200)

But sailing beyond the ocean of imagination, one realizes that there is a factor that determines the degree of beauty, i.e. a personal dictionary, which translates the mortals and assigns degree of beauty. The holy words of human history will peep out from the gale of truth and will strongly proclaim that Juliet was a goddess for a Romeo a god for her and rest, the particles of dust. Heer for ranjha was enough, and he for her, to lead whole their life together with few straws of love. But remember, if all the lovers of the world of the world are invited to a party to ask who amongst all is the most beautiful, they certainly shall stamp the claim of beauty on the hearts and souls of their own beloved which indeed is not their narrow-mindedness but a natural fact that ‘beauty lies in the eyes of beholder’.

One day a great historian whispered in my ears a story…
‘once upon a time there was king so fond of beauty that he called his most loyal and faithful negro slave and ordered him to go from east to west and from north to south and fetch him such a paragon of beauty that neither moon would have risen with such splendors nor the oysters of ocean would have given birth to such magnificent pearls; neither ladies of paradise would have looked so charming not the preachers of beauty would have been able to give such bewitching example, neither any artist would have created such mind blowing portrait nor a poet from the depth of his imagination would have been able to compose such riveting verse; neither any dove would have its pinion soar such marvelously not the Aphrodite would have marked such excellence. And if I say for her that she is the most beautiful spirit God ever created, then the claimants of beauty should have said:’ we are like lumps of coal in a mine and she a diamond among us.’ So, go my man whose head crown of my faith rests, on whose shoulders stars of firm belief shine and on whose chest medals of sure obedience are stamped. Go and present me the beauty that should be praised and witnessed by the twinkling stars.’

The negro servant bowed down and went away calmly to the peaks from where the sun pierced its shining fingers into the dark curtains of night, from where Shakespeare and Shelley enjoyed drinks of inspiration, from where the portrait of Mona Liza was found and from where moon extracts its gleaming light; and thus he went through plains to mountains, through valleys to deserts, through unfathomable cares to celestial cities and through each and every inch of this world where life seemed breathing.

After indefatigable efforts, he went to the King, presented him what seemed the goddess of beauty to him, his Negro daughter. At this, the king asked,
‘did you not find any soul more beautiful than this?’

He kept silent for a while, then raised his head and said:
‘Your Excellency, my blood shall be showered in your feet if I speak but the truth. You asked me to bring Aphrodite but I brought my Negro daughter; the reason was my loyalty. Your Excellency, for you her black complexion may seem coal in the dark but for me it is as beautiful as back rose or a diamond. To you her dry hair may look like that of a witch of some old myth dancing in woods but for me her hair is no less than the curtains of paradise. To you her wrinkled hands may seem as a deserted sight of this land but to me they seem as gods, to cope up the world’s fate in it has sketched these lines on it. To you her eyes may seem as those of angels when embodying eyes have mistaken but to me success. To you her wide nose may seem as dark, unfathomable caves of stone ages but to me it is no less than Noah’s Ark. Therefore, Your Excellency, my obedience and loyalty to you compelled me to bring my daughter to you.’

Then the historian smiled and said, ‘Yes! Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.’

In quest of defining and explaining the beauty, two schools of thought have emerged so far. One proclaims importance of inner beauty and the other preaches the pleasure presented by worldly beauties. But in fact all beautiful things are not necessarily good, charming and attractive but all good and true things are always beautiful. Therefore, it is well said by Keats:

Beauty is truth, truth beauty,
That’s all ye know on earth
And all ye need to know.’

The school of thought preaching inner beauty bore these words on the preface of its textbook:

‘History is evident that the world has given birth to many worldly beauties which only could help to quench the thirst of people and awake beast in them. Many beauties passed by without any notice but the beauty of soul and conscience has claimed triumph over hearts of millions and marked its eternal existence. The people blessed with purity of soul, truthfulness of their conscience, goodness of their deeds and firmness of their faith have succeeded to scratch their name on the forehead of this earth and lead their nation to the peals of glory. And thus they are still breathing in the hearts of many mortals. Nobody asks whether Aristotle was handsome or not, whether Alexander was strong tall in stature or not and whether Anarkali when buried alive inside the walls posed like a queen or not. People do not ask such questions, but everybody does ask that how they climbed to success inch by inch. The open secret of their success, in fact, is their character, behavior, determination, zeal and enthusiasm which contributed towards their success and inner beauty.’

On the contrary, the school of thought preaching worldly beauty is thanking his God in these words:

‘Thanks my God, for you have blessed us such beauties, whose single glance shuns off our day-long tiredness, whose heart may prove as a place of eternal peace to our souls, whose sight reminds us of your Excellence. Thanks my God, you have bestowed upon us such beauty, the wish to achieve, which proves a source of fuel for our body, mind and soul. This beauty has decorated this terrifying and worthless world; and it cheers us up when we are cooped in the cells of gloom, worries and misfortunes. Oh God! Really the beauty that you have blessed us with is a source of living in this frightful world.’

In fact, since the creation of this universe, beauty has been neglected and stigmas of frailty have been marked on its forehead. Beauty seems to be an emblem of nothing but thirst rubbing machine. Those who dwell in this world have been really mistaken in understanding the true beauty. When the beauty reigns its lost crown these mortals will see with their eyes open and sense smelling the truth that worldly beauty was just a mirage. Praise be to the Lord, who gifted us these praiseworthy inner beauties which indeed enabled mankind to kindle flames of love even in the dark. And, therefore, we must stop lauding the beauty only. We should also extol its creator, the Almighty GOD.

Checkup: Winter Skin

Changes in the look and feel of your skin during cold, winter months are not abnormal, but you can counteract unpleasant irritation.

winterskin.jpg (1600×1067)

Is Your Hair Stressed Out?
What are the signs?

The telltale symptoms of dry skin are easy to spot: Skin just generally feels drier and tighter. Other signs may include roughness, itching, severe redness, flaking and scaling. Sometimes pores become less visible or skin may look dull. In severe cases, the skin may crack and bleed, especially on the hands and fingertips.
Why does it happen?

Sun exposure or cold, dry air can cause the skin to become dehydrated. Dry skin is more common in the winter because the air contains less humidity. It can also be genetic or hereditary, or a natural effect of aging.

What are your options?

Over-the-counter lotions, such as Eucerin and Curél, can relieve dryness and flaking. Or try a body cream that contains oil to help seal in moisture. Look for fragrance-free products with alpha hydroxy acids, which gently exfoliate to allow more water and moisture into the skin.
Avoid antibacterial and deodorant soaps, which can be harsh and drying. Instead, use a gentle cleanser, such as Dove or Aveeno, or a mild shower gel with added moisturizers.
Don’t take extremely hot baths, or shower or soak in the tub for more than 10 minutes. Doing so breaks down your skin’s natural protective oils, which keep it soft and smooth.
Use a humidifier during the winter. Central heating and space heaters can dry out the air in your home.
Choose natural, breathable fabrics, such as cotton and silk, for your bedding and the innermost layer of clothing.
Drink plenty of water and other liquids to keep skin hydrated from the inside out. Omega-3s (essential fatty acids found in foods such as salmon, walnuts, flaxseed, soybeans, and broccoli) can also help keep skin supple.
When should you worry?

See a dermatologist if dryness and itching keep you awake at night, if OTC lotions aren’t working, if you have open sores or large areas of scaling or peeling skin, or if you develop an infection from scratching. You could have a more serious condition such as eczema, psoriasis or another skin disorder.

Did you know?

Although everyone’s skin changes with age, a man’s skin tends to stay moist longer. That’s because a woman’s skin becomes much drier after menopause.
The best time to apply lotion is immediately after a shower or bath when skin is still damp.
Since dry skin is extra-sensitive, it’s important to protect it from the sun, especially if it’s snowing (snow can reflect as much as 80 percent of the sun’s rays). Apply SPF 15 or higher every day to your face, neck, and ears.

Kick Dry Skin to the Curb

Top dermatologists weigh in on the common issues of winter skin and how to get a few comforts.
Winters here and with it come to the harsh winds of indignant skin. The recurring of cold and dry outdoor and hot and dry inside is wreaking havoc on our valuable skin. So, what’s a female to do? Luckily, loads consistent with Dr. Doris Day, MD, FAAD, Big Apple dermatologist and author of Overlook the Facelift (Avery Books) and Dr. Loretta Ciraldo Miami dermatologist and creator of Six Weeks to the Sensational skin (Rodale) who percentage their iciness-protective secrets.

Be on a hot bathtub boycott.

In certain elements of the country, it’s chillingly cold. And it’s far precisely the ones cold temperatures which can lead many to a big dry skin perpetrator: hot, long, baths. “Hot showers strip away your frame’s natural oils,” says Dr. Day, leaving your skin dry and tight. As an alternative, r. Day recommends taking not-so-hot showers, after which patting dry rubbing totally dry after so your frame is a bit damp. “It is about water retention,” says Dr. Day.

Still, the use of summer season merchandise? Ain’t gonna reduce it.

The use of a wealthy cream instead of a lotion will make a big difference for your skin,” says Dr Day, as creams are thinner and no longer as emollient as their thicker cream opposite numbers. As a substitute, Dr. Day indicates switching out your light warm climate lotion for a richer, extra penetrating cream.

Do not worry approximately wrinkles.

“Girls often see an exaggeration of wrinkles within the wintry weather,” says Dr. Ciraldo, “due to skins dryness.” So in case you appearance within the replicate and spot greater exceptional traces round your eyes and mouth, Don’t add more strain for your touchy skin by way of freaking out. It is maximum in all likelihood a temporary factor. As a substitute, defend yourself with a hydrating night cream and a very good night’s sleep.

Soak in it.

“It’s vital to position moisture back on your body,” says Dr. Ciraldo, and she method actually. Dr. Ciraldo recommends relaxing in a bathtub of tepid water until your fingertips are wrinkled, but long that takes “Your pores and skin has an excellent potential for containing water,” says Dr. Ciraldo, “it’s critical to get re-hydrated.”

Read ingredients.

Due to the fact our pores and skin loses lipids within the wintry weather (the barrier that maintains water in) it is important to use products that contain lipids, just like the ever-popular Ceramides. Dr. Ciraldo also recommends seeking out products with Stearic Acid (an animal fat) and Glyco-Lipids, that can also assist in stopping moisture loss.

Get oily.

This is a great time to get on the Flaxseed oil and Fish oil bandwagon. Except, being high in good-for-you Omega-3’s, those oils help maintain the pores and skin supple. Fish oil and flax seed oil dietary supplements can also help improve skin’s appearance and decrease the ache of stiff sore joints, resulting from the wintry weather bloodless and viable the boom of you staying indoors and sofa surfing.

Avoid Cleaning soap.

“Many soaps are drying, so it’s crucial to clean with a liquid non-Cleaning soap cleanser,” says Dr. Ciraldo. Further, Dr. Ciraldo shows searching out cleansers or moisturizers that are possess botanical, plant extracts like chamomile and lavender which are clearly body replenishing. Botanical are often soothing as nicely; perfect for wind chapped or uncovered pores and skin.
