Beauty is only skin deep

This short video is about food waste. Or rather, an idea to help stop food waste. It’s about a movement in France to try to change the image of ugly, disfigured fruits and vegetables and get people to buy and eat them instead of throwing them away.

You’ll learn some good synonyms for ugly. And hopefully, the video will also remind you that beauty is only skin … or peel … deep.

I think the Japanese version of that saying is: 「美しさは皮一重に過ぎない」, which looks pretty close to the English, but I’m not sure how common it is. Can you think of a better translation?
