Appearance Matters

We are living in an image-obsessed world.

People do anything and everything just to look good.

Those who are gifted with good looks are oftentimes the ones that shine especially in social media.

But many who have issues with their skin, face, and physical appearance often shy away from Instagram.

Others just use too much filter on their photos that they look a far cry from their actual appearance!

For most women, appearance is such a big deal. It greatly spells the difference between having great confidence and lowered self-esteem.

Fortunately, there’s a podcast that discusses about all things that matter to appearance.

Appearance Matters is created by the Centre for Appearance Research.

In this podcast, you’ll learn new insights and the latest advancements in research for any appearance-related issues.

The discussions may range from acne, burn injuries to breast cancer and bariatric surgery.

The best part of it is that the discussions don’t just come out of nowhere. Everything is discussed from an expert’s point of view with research-backed information.

Some of the guest speakers are researchers and clinicians, as well as people who have problems with their appearance.
