Whether we think too much or too little of ourselves, we seem to live in a society full of the image obsessed.




Beauty and Weight Loss Specialist, Alicia Hunter, joins the Mad Life panel for this  ego-boosting conversation.

Why are we so vain?

Because we WANT to feel good about ourselves.  Even if we don't, we don't want anyone else to KNOW that we don't like ourselves.

I completely agree with SlightlyPerfects's answer. Unfortunately that is the world we live in. I try not to let my daughter focus on looks considering she is only five.

While I do agree with tis,
I know for me I feel better wearing make up .. do you ?

Quoting elasmimi:

I have reached an age where most vanity is gone. When I was younger, I would never think of leaving the house w/o full makeup, dressed to perfection. Now comfort takes precedence over vanity. Maybe wisdom does come with age.

I agree that technology feeds off of our insecurities. That is why I think if we took one day a week or a month to just not go online or look in a mirror it would only better us.
