With the constant barrage of unrealistic beauty standards, it’s easy to get hung up on not fitting the mold and lose sight of what truly attracts us to one another. I was surprised and saddened to learn from Dove’s recent Real Beauty campaign that “only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful” but I suppose starting a dialogue about how women feel about themselves and aging (whatever Dove’s motives are) is a step in the right direction. When the product recommendations and expert advice aren’t enough, positive affirmations and a “go-girl attitude” help. These 20 beauty quotes to live by really resonate with me and serve as a good reminder that true beauty cannot be measured with the eye. You can quote me on that.
