In this modern-day society, beauty is no longer defined by gender. More rather, men have become more conscious of their looks “no” thanks to the endless pressure faced by their peers and/or the posts found on social media, which sets beauty trends as a form of standard to follow. However, we do need to be aware of:
- Some of the content that is posted is unreasonably set to be high expectations of beauty standards.
- Not everyone is meant to be a perfect fit for these stereotyped beauty standards.
According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, beauty standards are defined as “one’s contentment found in either the qualities of the individual or a particular feature that they found as attractive”. These standards will vary according to the different cultures.
For instance, Koreans prefer a softer approach to masculinity, with clear skin, enlarged eyes and a touch of both masculine and feminine features as a prime example. However, Westerners view beauty in an opposite light, which highlights the key features of masculinity, such as ruggedness, sharp jawlines and a muscular physique.
