I'm not sure what you mean by practicing "pure karma". Gurbani says ਜਿਤੁ ਘਟਿ ਵਸੈ ਪਾਰਬ੍ਰਹਮੁ ਸੋਈ ਸੁਹਾਵਾ ਥਾਉ ॥: That Heart, in which the Supreme Lord abides, is the most beautiful place. (Ang 218). Read this article They explain really well how by moving away from maya (attachment to the physical body's beauty) and towards the beauty of our jot (light within us), we are beautiful. Otherwise Gurbani says "You are wasting this life in the pride of wealth and the splendor of beauty. (Ang 24) and Social status and beauty will not go with you hereafter (Ang 263). So don't strive for physical beauty, strive for that inner beauty that only comes from really understanding Gurbani and what it teaches us. That we work hard, share our earnings, naam jap, that we live our life truthfully, that we don't get caught up in lust, anger, pride, greed, or attachment and the illusions of this world- power, beauty, money, etc.
