|After exploring the context of the website, and consequently viewing classic paintings of feminine beauty, I began thinking about how the view of female skin has changed along with weight issues. In many periods, I believe primarily Elizabethan times, the fairer the woman's skin, the more beautiful she was considered. In fact, "fair" as in fair skin and hair, became synonomous with beautiful. How times have changed!|
Now, people fork over money, time, and healthy skin cells to get that dark tan "glow" when fairer skin actually has more natural luminosity to it. Sun-bathing is not only dangerous, but it ages the skin as well, and takes away the natural glow present in paintings of times past.
