Do these materialistic plastic changes alter your life in positive ways? In whos eyes does it make you look better? Everybody has the right to look the way they want to but why is it that they want to? Noone ever establish their own asthetic ideal, always adopt the materialistic norm.

Puts you into a norm. that’s what makes it popular. Were blindied by this dominating white beauty. Images more dominate life today.
