Our relentless pursuit for physical perfection, as defined by others, begins at birth. From infancy we are bombarded by images of the unattainable and respond by plastering and injecting ourselves with hazardous substances. We become willing participants in an array of injurious practices attempting to achieve this ideal projected upon us. As we perm, bleach, wax, wave, lift, nip, binge, and purge, we convey agreement that our value is lacking and signify that it is acceptable to define us solely on the basis of external appearances. This cycle continues only until such time when we are able to notice our own inherent value and realize we need only look inward to assess it.
