How far would you go for beauty?

How far would you for beauty or even to prevent aging. Would you inject botox, do comestic surgery or injecting wrinkle filler or even signing courses which involve machines to firm your skin? Or you would just use some skincare or just sleep earlier and eating healthy. Belief in natural methods more?

I would only go as far as putting makeup on and perhaps applying moisturizer/lotion once in a while. I don't think I'll ever go for anything that involves needles or surgery just to feel beautiful. After all, I believe people who go for treatments do it to feel good about themselves which is (no offense) is a manifestation of insecurity. How often do we hear celebrities who are commented on as "Why does she have to change her nose (or other appendage) when her old one looks great already?" So it's not about beauty that others perceive in us but about how we perceive ourselves. For me, eating healthy, getting enough sleep and being blessed with peace of mind by having people I love (and who loves me in return) around me is enough to keep me happy ... and beautiful. Beauty should not, and never must, be equated with anybody's physical appearance. Beauty is seen in one's heart and in the depths of the soul.

I believe that you are born that way for a reason. I have gotten my ears pierced and only on occasion will I wear makeup like if I am going to a club or somewhere special. But I don't believe in all those surgeries that involve cosmetic reasons only. We should accept ourselves for who we are because what we are made of is what makes us different from everybody else. And personally, I don't want to look like everyone else and not be considered natural in some areas of my body. I believe that surgury should be done only if it aids in the health of the person. Technology has become so detailed that we become use to doing something just because we can.

I have very sensitive skin and I don't mind spending money for glycolic peels or laser treatments on my face. I only use the products recommended by my dermatologist so there's hardly over the counter astringent or any facial stuff that I put on my face. Tough. But it's worth every penny if you have a very good dermatologist. I don't want to do botox, no wrinkle filler. I would think of having rhinoplasty though and maybe mesotherapy if I had the money. I do eat healthy foods and make sure I don't miss out on my fiber and fruits intake. But again if I had the money, I would hire a cook to do all the healthy cooking for me.
