    'Blessed' with really fair, photosensitive skin & crippling acne [the kind that gets physically painful after a certain point] in early adulthood, I developed a regular am/pm skincare routine & have kept to it religiously, even after the acne fully cleared.

    I can't say I do things to "preserve beauty," in any way- as someone with some pretty deep-seated body image issues, it doesn't cross my mind to preserve something I don't have, nor does it occur to me to really even want to "feel pretty," -if that makes sense.

    Anything I do for my skin, etc, is purely for hygiene/maintenance- more to prevent what I have from becoming any worse/alleviate or prevent feelings of anxiety or shame, depending on the issues, I guess. Also, if you do take care of your skin regularly, you tend to physically feel rather grimy if you suddenly stop, & I find the sensation unpleasant/gross.

    The idea of aging hasn't bothered me, aesthetically- my avoidance of the sun & the fact that a lot of the acne treatments I use have anti-aging benefits, I've been told, has kept my complexion looking fairly youthful for someone my age [27]. I find this only relevant to my interests regarding my acting pursuits. I'd like to have as wide a range of ages to play for as long as possible. This is also the reason I color over any grays that may creep in. Someday I'll let it all go white, & let neighborhood children believe I'm a witch..

    As far as physical fitness goes, being active and eating healthy foods just feels good, to me. If it keeps me in good outer shape, that's a plus. Admittedly, with body image issues, I can never actually see myself as 'thin' or in good shape- not consistently, at least. Funhouse mirror effect. To keep from relapsing into unhealthy habits like starvation, I've made it a point to try to focus more on my overall physical health, over the years, than allow intrusive & unhealthy thoughts about my body dictate my actions. Mh, it's a process.

    So, I don't know precisely where I stand, with regard to feeling a 'need.' I suppose when things are undergoing renovations, it's a bit too messy to determine things like that. /shrug

    yeah, even though i can be super lazy, i'm still extremely picky when i'm buying clothes, shoes, etc. if i'm wearing something i think is ugly i'm totally uncomfortable with myself.

    I think preserving beauty is more of a sx focus.

    But I suppose sp's would tend to worry more about preserving health, which would incidentally affect beauty.

    I want to preserve health as well, but I place a higher emphasis on looks.

    I'm very much drawn (sometimes covet) to beautiful things and places. One of my post-graduation/working fantasies is decorating my living space like I've always wanted to (think lots of window seats, lofts, over-stuff chairs, and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves).

    I've always been careless about looks/dressing but I'm pretty vain about my skin and teeth. I'm lucky that I can shave 10+ years off my face...more if I used make-up. When I'm able to, I'll have these awful dark circles underneath my eyes (chronic allergies and abnormally thin skin) removed by laser. Everything else? Look at my signature...age-related physical beauty loss comes to us all.

    I'd like to be more fit but my ability to exercise like I want is limited by RA.

    I can be happy without being beautiful, but beauty definitely helps

    This is absolutely true for me. I think beauty is virtue and truth and harmony, and very little is worth doing if it's not beautiful. I want to live as long as possible and be as healthy as possible. And of course health and beauty are correlated. Ultimately health is more important, but as they tend to go together, this usually isn't a problem. I'm probably sx/sp then.
