I've never considered being beautiful as something I should be expected to prove to the world, day after day. Beauty is elusive, not a tangible substance. It rests inside and presents itself at appropriate moments - In how you handle yourself in an unflattering or challenging situation, or in the way you feel sitting in a patch of golden, late-evening sunlight. It shows its face as it pleases. Observers and passers by either take note of it or they don't. In this regard, any amount of buffing or bronzing is futile.
