What young girl has not been fed on the stories of a young and pretty princess with wicked and old witch for misery? For as long as our human civilization could remember, female beauty, a little different from the inner and skin deep beauty of the pageants, has evoked and inspired artistic pursuits. Greeks worshiped their goddesses Venus, Aphrodite, Isthar etc for their aura of power and sensuality. Painters and poets have tried to capture the emotions it stirred within them with the splash of colors on their canvas or words on a paper. A Helen was enough to justify the grand war of Troy and its consequence of bloodshed. Harems of sensual and exasperatingly beautiful women were enough to bring out the man in the army of boys. Beauty was to be worshiped and women of that time understood it well. For a woman to be called beautiful, it was quintessential for her to be slim, youthful and firm in her appearance.
Over the period of many centuries and a millennium, we have seen the transient process of a man from rubbing two rocks to produce the fire to punching their blackberries profusely to strike off deals while they are in the middle of another important business seminar. First step for Neil Armstrong on a moon was a huge leap for the mankind. However, rest of the world still gawked at Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn on silver screen. An attractive female is obviously hot, pretty, slim, beautiful and of course young, for the general public. Never mind the biology in between. In fact, guess my age is a theme that every woman, irrespective of class, category, race, color and culture, has come to celebrate.
Smarter species amongst us have made a lot of business sense out of our inherent and undying desire to be youthful and slim forever with the sleek advertisements of 'you are worth it'. So, is their really a magic Weight Loss Anti Aging Supplement? Over the period of time, the fanatics, amongst us, have turned from surgeon to surgeon in quest of that ultimate moment when all those men in a room would blink their eyes and gasp in disbelief at the sheer attractiveness of their female compatriot. So, most of us, beyond the age of 30, have come to rely on a huge list of Vitamins from A to Z, under eye wrinkle creams, laugh line smoothing agents, cheekbone tightening oils and of course the list goes as long as the market is wide with the force of demand and supply at its full prowess.
Even though the brigade of actresses and models, who believe in aging gracefully at the age of 21, might audaciously call the 30 above women an insecure lot without self respect but, what actress worth her box office, with age and grace, has not gone through the merciless knife of a surgeon? Supplements, on the other hand, merely do a balancing act, which is scientifically proven and absolutely innocuous. So pop those pills to maintain your balance just right within and outside.
