What should your appearance say about you-and your religion?

RELIGION

 

 

What does religion mean to you? How do you see religious men and women and their daily appearance? Appearances can be something very difficult to determine when it comes to certain religions like do you wear makeup, is pants acceptable, and is it acceptable to grow a beard, do you wear your hair up or down? These are all questions many people have questioned themselves about for many years.

Women of faith have always been questioned about why they dress the way they do and whether or not they should wear makeup. Some women believe that to be religious that you must wear skirts and no pants. Some women believe if you wear makeup that you are going against gods wishes. But all of those are judgments by other women and judging someone is a sin to god. So what is the real way a women should dress or how her appearance should be when she is religious? Each religion is different and has their own standards of dress and how to represent yourself to the public. Mormons believe in subtle ways of looking, nothing flashy, and long skirts for the women. The Amish community believe in covering up their heads wearing long dresses and skirts and no makeup. While the Baptist believe that women can wear anything appropriate for public and makeup is no sin. So what do you think about women and their appearance in the religious world?

Some of the questions that we can ask ourselves is what do women in religion do to help themselves look and feel pretty? God tells us not to be vain but we as women still need to feel pretty and look pretty in our day to day lives. One way that women who can’t wear makeup or colorful clothes can help themselves feel pretty is by shaving and one of the best ways to do that is with a top rated epilators. You can usually find them online or at retail stores. But not every religious women has the option to purchase things from online or retail stores so there best option would be try something else. Other ways to help yourself feel and look pretty is by doing your hair. Hair is a way to express yourself without going against the code or rules of your religious beliefs. Many women grow their hair out really long and the longer your hair the prettier you are considered to be. In some religions the men grow their beards out when married instead of wearing wedding rings. This is a show of status in the community for men. Even though the bible states that vanity is a sin men and women pride themselves on their hair and their stature in the religious communities they are in.

Religion is a very tricky subject for some people and many people are confused about how they are supposed to act or appear to the outside public. Even though the bible gives you guidelines to live by some people and religions assess the words in the bible differently to fit their perception of how they should look, feel, act, and be in their community. But what it all boils down to is what is acceptable in your religious community and how appropriate you feel inside yourself.
