Safety and Accuracy
You might question pretty the scale is accurate. Is it safe? Well, the answer is no, it isn’t. The results are not real, and here’s why-
- Use of pictures – Pretty scale uses photographs, and an image cannot tell you how you look in real life.
Also, some cameras make your eyes, nose, or chin look more prominent than actual or make it look small or short.
Thus, a picture cannot tell whether you are pretty or ugly.
- Measurements- The website asks you to point the line around your face to measure, while it doesn’t ask to show your teeth or if you have your glasses on.
Even if you put a dog’s face and send them the measurements, it will still update you with the results.
- Just the use of symmetry- Pretty scale uses balance to determine if you are ugly or beautiful.
However, many people will quickly fail the symmetry test but will still be considered the most attractive people alive.
Moreover, there are various symmetries through which one can measure, like- the Rule of fifths, where the face is divided into five parts with the width of the eye; Rule of third; Rule of 77, etc.
Pros of the app
- This app uses a kind of symmetry that gives you an idea about how pretty you are.
- Pretty scale can be great fun to play with your friends and family.
Cons of the app
- The app could use soft comments like “It is ok, you are still beautiful” in the results instead of directly commenting “You are ugly.”
- Also, instead of highlighting imperfections, which can mentally disturb someone, the app could highlight the plus points and not be so harsh on its audience.
The Pretty scale was made for people who wish to know about their face or body. Depending on how you take things, the result may hurt or motivate you. Beauty standards have changed over the past years and differ from one place and culture to another. From a young age, women are taught to care for their bodies and faces as if there are no other important things in life. Women have started participating in politics, education, business, employment, etc., but society believes they need to be slim and fit. Over the years, an ideal female body has been a small figure with slender legs and flawless skin. From generation to generation, women are taught to be the ‘quiet’ disciplined girl. With high beauty standards, most women wear long-sleeved clothes so they don’t tan themselves from the sun, no matter how humid the weather is.
Beauty is not what you wear or put on your face and body; beauty is how you carry it. It is not about matching your outfit with expensive ornaments; it is always about how flawlessly you take your smile and maintain confidence in your stance. The world is full of people who are busy working on their outer beauty that they have forgotten about their inner beauty, which is way more important. One must never forget that more focus on physical aspects can make a person insecure, but inner beauty makes a person strong and invincible. Outer beauty fades away with time, and so does your look, but your soul, personality, knowledge, and good deeds make you a beautiful person. Beauty is about simplicity, grace, and the confidence to be comfortable in your skin. So, do you want to know who the most beautiful person in the world is? There’s a trick. Pick up the mirror nearest to you. THAT’S THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PERSON IN THE WORLD! Who do you see?
