8 Beauty Lessons We've Learned Through The Ages

We all know it: It's often difficult to embrace our looks in a culture driven by conventional standards of beauty. Embracing your natural loveliness is tricky when you're inundated with imagery of bodies and faces of impossible perfection. (Thanks, Photoshop!)

Still, while we all recognize that unrealistic ideals don't always reflect the world around us, there's a lot we can learn from the past. As beauty trends and rituals evolve, we find that what's "flawed" in one generation becomes "flawless" in the next.

We've partnered with Suave Professionals to bring you eight lessons about beauty we've learned throughout history.
