Is it bad to pray to become beautiful?
To help encourage you, I would like to share a piece I saw on the Facebook page "The Ideal Muslimah." I am a brother, and I definitely agree with these suggestions.

Please take a look at this advice, so that you can stay attractive and beautiful for the rest of your life.
1- To beautify your eyes, lower your gaze towards strange men, this will make your eyes pure and shiny.
2- To beautify your face and make it shiny, keep doing wudhoo minimum five times a day.
3- To have attractive lips, always mention Allah and remember to speak the truth.
4- As for blush and rouge, "Modesty" (Haya') is one of the best brands and it can be found in any of the Islamic centers.
5- To remove impurities from your face and body, use a soap called "Istighfaar". (seeking forgiveness of Allah) this soap will remove any bad deeds.
6- Now about your hair, if any of you has a problem of hair split ends, then "Islamic Hijab" which will protect your hair from damage.
7- As! for jewelry, beautify your hands with humbleness and let your hands be generous and give charity to the poor
8- To avoid heart disease, forgive people who hurt your feelings.
9- Your necklace should be a sign to pardon your fellow brothers and sisters.
If you follow these advices given to you by the Creator, you will have a beautiful and attractive inner and outer appearance. InshaAllaah.
Everyone is beautiful in their own way. We all have something about ourselves that we don't like. Take me for example: I have many problems with a lot of my physical features; I've been called both super ugly, but also sometimes super good looking. There is a woman I want to marry, but feel like I'm not good enough for her, on the other hand, my parents think I am too good for her. We have to learn to be grateful and realize the blessings Allah has given us, and be happy with what we have. If you think you aren't good looking, imagine those who are physically scarred from car accidents, bombings, etc. Beauty only lasts so long, as we get older, we will naturally lose hair, have wrinkly skin, maybe lose some teeth, etc. Physical beauty is very temporary, and can be shortened easily. Try not to sadden yourself with meaningless things like these, pray to Allah that He helps you find happiness and always know that all of Allah's creatures are created beautifully.
