What is beauty?
Why do we want it?
How do we get it?
Can we keep it?
Beauty is nature's ticking time bomb - youth sees us hurtling towards its climax with increasing speed whilst maturity finds us having to cope with the inevitable fallout - wrinkled faces, greying hair and sagging bodies. Can we defy the hands of time and discover beauty in a tub or tube, achieve it with a brush and palette, acquire it under a needle or knife, apply it as a spritz or spray or even take it as a potion or pill?
Tina Parsons takes you on a sensorial journey through body, mind and spirit: from perception, sight and touch through to sound, smell and taste, beauty is examined and evaluated. As its secrets are unravelled and myths dispelled, a sublime sense of the true meaning of beauty emerges.
