I would like to do my research project on the beauty industry and how beauty and beauty standards effects self help.
Self help is meant to start with the “self” and so much value is put into appearance from ourselves and society. Many people believe makeup helps them in their day to day lives, but what about in unexpected times.. like a pandemic. In a recent article women spoke about how makeup has helped them even through the quarantined pandemic.
It’s also proven that wearing make-up can make you feel better. “Putting make-up on and even simply looking forward to playing around with a new look gives the brain a boost of feel good neurochemicals, especially dopamine. It results in improved mood, reduced stress and therefore, in better mental health.
I want to research
- How effective makeup is within wellness
- is makeup just for face value to please societal standards or does it help a persons wellbeing
- how has the beauty industry changed and how can it bring change, has lack of inclusivity effected peoples confidence and well being.
