Beauty care : There are a wide variety of beauty care products out there. There is no way to summarize all of the available safe products. See your board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist to discuss all the options. This is the only way to customize a treatment plan and discuss the risks and benefits.

How can I teach a perception of beauty?

By Example: You will teach your child many things. Comment on specific things you find beautiful, your child will learn from your example. Finding beauty everwhere is one of life's joys: a smile, a piece of art, poetic words, moving music, athetic physique, the natual world, complexity, and so on. Through your teaching your child will develop his/her own perception of beauty.

What good stuff?: Are you referring to the increased risk of cancer, the vascular disease, chronic cough, skin damage, ill effects that second hand smoke has on others, the addiction that develops, or some of the others that I have left out?

Can be one.: We live in a society that treats the attainment of physical beauty and youth like a religion. For those who buy into that - they will often go to great lenghts to achieve results. It is a very strong motivator for some people.

A 20-year-old female asked:

I'm happy with myself & know i'm beautiful .. But i guess people don't see me like that. Even my boyfriend likes my inner beauty more .. Am i ugly ?

Beauty: Outer beauty can decline with time; inner beauty only improves -- at least it does if you take good care of yourself. Your comments about others' supposed attitudes towards you, and your own concerns about being "ugly, " sound like you could be assessing yourself through the eyes of depression -- not fair to you at all! a therapist may be able to help you sort these worries out.
