117: The Dark History of Beauty Standards: Beauty is Pain

Dark History

Jan 10 2024 • 1 hr

Hi friends, happy Thursday!

Welcome to the Dark History podcast. We all know that “beauty” often comes with a high price to pay. I mean, worth it though, right? Who doesn’t like feeling beautiful? But what if I told you that  “beauty” practices throughout history have been down right ugly? And not just any ugly–we’re talking foot binding, bone crushing, pube-plucking ugly. I guess the takeaway is that beauty standards have a shady past. And the question becomes: Who are we doing all this for?

I appreciate you for coming by, and tune in next week for more Dark History.
