First and foremost, physical beauty and inner beauty can be acquired later in a persons life. As a person grows older and develops into a more mature and wise individual, their inner beauty may increase due to their years of experience. The same can be said for physical beauty: a person may develop attractive features as they get older or simply change the way they dress or look as they mature, which might increase their physical beauty. As you age, your physical beauty may decrease, because of the loss of a youthful appearance. Inner beauty also does not have to last forever, as your personality goes through many changes over your lifetime. Also, another similarity between physical beauty and inner beauty is that there is no real standard for either, every individual views it differently and has a different opinion on what is their standard of beauty.
Different people have different preferences when it comes to a certain type of look or a certain type of personality, so there is no way to have the perfect look or perfect personality, and it is impossible to please everyone. Another difference in these two categories of beauty is how they are achieved and occur, or come in an individual. Inner beauty is the beauty that is defined in how you behave, so it can be changed through your actions, behavior, and manners. As physical beauty is the outer appearance it essentially achieved through birth and heritance. Since physical beauty is something we are born with, some features cant be changed, but others can. Plastic surgery and cosmetics have given a rise to changing the outer appearance of a person.
Finally, when a person has inner beauty, it generally translates into physical beauty over the course of time. The difference between physical beauty and inner beauty is that inner beauty by itself is enough for other people, but physical beauty has to be accompanied by inner beauty.
It is impossible to rely only on your looks to get others to like you. Although looks seem to get more attention than personality, this is in some cases true, but almost always personality is what keeps the attention. Physical beauty may give someone their fifteen minutes of fame, but inner beauty gives someone a lifetime of fame. In my opinion, more importance should be paid to inner beauty rather than physical beauty.
Physical beauty and inner beauty are two completely different things. As every different person has a different opinion about these two forms of beauty, it is hard to say which one everyone gives more importance to, but most people can appreciate inner beauty because it is genuine. Though both physical beauty and inner beauty do not always last forever, enjoy it while you can, but do not take advantage of it. Physical beauty may have its edges, but inner beauty is more reliable and its advantages in the long run are far better.
Inner beauty is seen to be more important and pure than physical beauty because it holds no lies, and it attracts the heart, mind, and soul. Physical beauty is an illusion that has no real strength. This beauty can easily fade away over time and so what is left is the inner beauty of a person.
In conclusion, inner beauty and physical beauty have a lot of importance in the way people are treated, but they have many differences in between them. The way they are defined, how they are achieved and even the value of the beauties makes them different in nature. Both physical and inner beauty makes a person who they are. While both types make a person beautiful, the idea of being beautiful depends on ones mind. Physical beauty includes the qualities that one can see and inner beauty consists of the qualities that are present, but cannot be seen. Therefore, everyone possesses beauty in their own way.
