Days are gone when beauty was all about being natural, when beauty was compared with simplicity, innocence and grace. A natural beauty may not be perfect all the time but it presents you in a way you actually are, it is all about inner beauty, whereas artificial beauty is about injections and surgeries. Thus, the word ‘Beauty’ has now changed its meaning.

People are under pressure of looking perfect all the time. Women and even men these days have developed an innate desire to vividly enhance their outer beauty.

But has anyone ever wished to stare at its side effects. If not, let’s take a quick ride to discover disastrous results of these plastic beautification treatments:
