Natural Beauty in Solomons

The article by Joana Sireheti on your newspage could make interesting reading if it's well researched and includes comments from perhaps locals in the pharmaceutical industry, sociologists or even religious figures.

No doubt, beauty is what many people would like to attach with. However, beauty, when contextualised with human appearance, dress or fashion can have negative implications on status of people in terms of their race, ethnicity, religion or other social status in society. You can say some Solomon women have natural beauty and I could say some rural Mexican women are also naturally pretty. When we say this, it will implicate that a Sudanese isn't or a Mongolian is not naturally pretty.

So please, research more to make your knowledge wider and grasp the facts and reliable information for your next story on beauty
