Painted nails and the hidden ugliness

I am catching up with posting online my articles.

This thing with the nails perfectly goes with what Jesus said:
Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?

So we try to find the perfection and the beauty in the nails ( small part of the body ) but we do not see the ugliness in the rest of the body. And even the nails are not beautiful at all !!! They are simply covers with the nail paint and then women have the acrylic nails glued to them. Apart from this there is also a point that if the whole body is weak and sick then the nails cannot be beautiful and healthy either.

The same as with the nails we have the same situation with the faces with makeup. I have written some articles about it in the past and I will not repeat myself here. Makeup is artificial beauty. Or I should rather say intention to be beautiful because in reality I do not see women who look beautiful with the make-up. The pictures in the magazines are beautiful but they are retouched with Photoshop and/or the photos are made by professional photographers. Thus the whole thing is actually not practical and not real.

But yet the women are striving to make themselves look like the model from the magazine. But they rarely do !!!

Anyway the point is that we hide our imperfections and our ugliness by focusing on the small part and ignoring the rest. The women look at the nails but they ignore the rest of the body. Many women are overweight and ugly but yet they don't want to see it.

I know that the word ugly seems to be very judgmental and very strong but then what else should I say ?
What other word should I use instead ?

We have weak bodies. The big part of humanity is overweight. We are sick. These are the facts and the statistical data. If you react to the word ugly then most probably you are also hiding some ugliness within yourself and you try to cover it up.

If you would like to have healthy and beautiful body then do something practical. Take care of yourself. Painted nails and the makeup is something like the medicine from the doctor. It treats the symptoms but it does not treat the cause of the problem.

There is also one important point. You must also realise that having beautiful body does not come only from doing sports and eating healthy food. It is an important element but something more important ( and probably most important ) is that you are expression of beauty. Express yourself as beauty in every moment. Make beautiful things. Act beautifully. Speak beautifully. Think beautifully. And be practical. Look at the whole picture and not just at the small element.
