In this age of image and celebrity our persuasive speech Beauty is more than skin deep, is truly significant. The saying may be thousands of years old, but more and more, our society is fixated about how people look on the outside.
When you get up to make the persuasive speech Beauty is more than skin deep, you will uncover a wealth of information, underlining how shallow and ridiculous this notion is. We need reminding of the invaluable deeper qualities we all possess and you will have the audience in the palm of your hand with this pertinent and touching speech.

Movies like this don't find their way into commercial cinemas very often. When they do, they don't tend to star anyone you've heard of. When a film comes along that doesn't fit the usual marketplace paradigms, such as "" or "" or "," you take notice. "Under the Skin" is a film in that vein. Right after it ended, I argued its merits with a friend who didn't care for it, and I jokingly referred to it as "what would happen if directed 'Species.'" It sounds like a glib joke, but I meant it as a compliment to the movie's mix of horror film menace and intellectualized control. It seems to hard to believe today, now that the pantheon of great directors has hardened into consensus, but there was a time when people thought there was less to Antonioni than met the eye, too. On the basis of this film, "Birth" and his debut "," Glazer strikes me as a director in the same weight class as Antonioni and all the other great filmmakers I've name-dropped in this piece, including Kubrick, the artist Glazer most often evokes. (Like Kubrick, Glazer takes his time—this is only his third feature in 13 years—and like Kubrick, he becomes more formally audacious, technically innovative, and inscrutable with each new work.)
The leading lady gives a performance different from any you've seen from her. It's keenly attuned to the movie's aesthetic. It's more about intuition and gesture than dialogue. Johansson has to be at once achingly specific and so general that you can hang symbols on her. She pulls it off. And somehow Johansson, Glazer and his cinematographer Daniel Landin transform how we think of this star. They've taken one of the most glamorous actresses of the modern era—a woman whose looks have been abstracted into hubba-hubba caricature in most films, and on awards shows—and ironically restored her earthliness by having her play a creature not of this earth. They've made her beautiful in a way, with hips and blemishes and folds in her skin.
The problem I see with the angle of view about the subject in this post is the narrow definition of beauty. Biologically, a female or a male is considered valuable based on her or his merits to create offspring with higher chance of survival. So, if people believe that a skinny, symmetrical looking girl has a higher chance of producing a child who would have a higher chance of attracting the opposite sex, then there is nothing wrong with the common desire for the appearance and looks. Even animals of different species practice that approach, the bird with bigger feathers, or the lion with a bigger mane is more in demand than the rest. But what we are over looking is that we are human and basis instincts are not suppose to be the first priority. But, characters such as Kardashians, Beyounce, and any other talent-less beauty queen who defines success based on granted merits rather than earned ones, are the reason that we, as the most intelligent species, still practice instinct driven lives like the rest of animal kingdom and not as intelligent ones
Beauty is more than skin deep, however. Not fitting society’s standard of beauty does not make you ugly. You can still be a beautiful person, and people won’t even notice the way your outsides are arranged.
This piece is ALL about paying girls compliments. Just choosing the compliments that can help inspire them to realize their full potential.
There is nothing wrong with being beautiful (as a 20 something I constantly wish I was more beautiful). And yes it’s great when someone tells me I am. But the compliments that mean so much more to me are ones about my accomplishments and my successes. It is so much more valuable to be praised for something I worked for rather than for looking a certain way because I chose a good color for my skin tone or was born with good jeans.
Plenty of people will tell a little girl she is beautiful. Not enough people will tell her she is smart, and talented, and independent.
If you can’t be dark-skinned in Africa, then where can you?The “why” goes back centuries, and says much about the searing effects of colonization that lingers today.
I love the message.
I have twin girls that are about to turn four years old. They love to dress up. My sister-in-law shared an important thought with me when our daughters, who are only 6 months apart, were very young. She said that she didn’t want her daughter to think that fixing her hair/painted fingernails/ jewelry or anything else MADE her beautiful, she wanted her to feel beautiful no matter what. So I have tried to emphasize that fixing their hair etc. does not make them beautiful, because they are beautiful no matter what. But I appreciate the message here, and I hope to integrate this more deeply into our lives daily. Thank You.
I wanted to watch "Under the Skin" more than once before I reviewed it. Life got in the way of that. No matter: I feel secure in saying that it's going to end up on my list of the year's best movies. I saw it almost a week ago and it has never been far from my mind. Is it perfect? Probably not. It might be too much of something, or too little of something else. Time will sort out the particulars. But I do know that the movie's sensibility is as distinctive as any I've seen. "Under the Skin" is hideously beautiful. Its life force is overwhelming.
Since we have better memory for negative events than positive ones, this is often the lasting impression we have of beautiful people and it (perhaps unfairly) spawns the saying "beauty is only skin deep." Well on the other side: -The phrase "beauty is only skin deep" is presumptive, misleading and a patently false statement.
The idea of providing probiotics directly to skin to improve health conditions is not far-fetched. However it is challenging up to this day. First is keeping them alive (microbes are alive, after all). Second is the nature of the skin ecosystem. In a healthy state, skin tends to resist microbial colonization. While technological advances may help formulators overcome these obstacles, there is much work to be done for a safe and effective solution. There is another side to the microbe coin that could yield results even today – prebiotics.
