Chung Man Yi, Jody 鍾敏怡

Skin, the soft outer tissue covering of vertebrates, has three main functions: protection, regulation, and sensation. I think skin is our second life and a healthy skin can make people look younger and prettier. Skin, therefore, is important to humankind, to women especially. There is a Chinese saying, “A girl will doll herself up for him who loves her”.

Under our fragile skin, we cover up our conflicted sensations. For example, it is uncommon for women to speak out about their obsessions and lust. Perhaps this is because of moral rules or other traditional ideologies. I think, however, there is no reason to reject the inner-self. I instead, we should proudly tell others who we really are.

皮膚是椎骨的柔軟外層覆蓋物,具有三個主要功能:保護、調節和感覺。

我認為皮膚是我們的第二生命,健康的皮膚可以使人看起 來更年輕,更漂亮,因此皮膚對人類(女性)尤為重要。古語有云 :「女為悅己者容。」

在易碎的皮膚下,人類掩蓋了他們各種矛盾。例如說出自己的痴迷和情慾對女人來說並不常見,這可能是由於道德 準則或某種傳統意識形態造成,但是我認為沒有理由拒絕內在的自我,更應該驕傲地告訴其他人這是真正的你。
