Flawless Beauty

Flawless beauty, yes being flawless is beautiful, but does it even exist?

The answer to that is actually, no. Nobody is truly flawless, as nature is chaos, and all natural things have a matter of chaos of flaws in them. We humans aren’t any different, despite the modern trend of people trying to get themselves flawless through treatments, procedures, medicines and exercise.

Trying to be flawless is futile, however that is not to say improving your flaws, does not improve your image and looks. The more we strive to being perfect or flawless, the more beautiful we may appear.

Is flawless beautiful?

Some people are uniquely beautiful, eye-catching or striking because of their different and often especially non-flawless look, but that is the beauty exception rather than the norm.

The norm, would have it that the more flawless or symmetrical something or someone is, the more attractive or beautiful they are. There have been numerous studies showing a correlation between attractiveness and symmetry.

No, we will never be flawless, although some do appear more so than others. It is obvious though that fewer flaws makes us look more attractive, so the pursuit of flawlessness or perfection, does often pay off in terms of improving our own physical beauty and attractiveness.⁽¹⁾⁽²⁾⁽³⁾
