I love the saying, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” It’s never been truer! Especially when the fashion and entertainment industry try to shove their idea of beauty down our throats. And as Latinas, we’re always battling the stereotypes that they’ve placed before us. The truth is, we all have different opinions of what beauty is.
But what about “true beauty”? Does it mean something different to you?
I believe that true beauty shines from the inside out. The latest fashion and beauty products have nothing to do with it. It’s about loving yourself for who you are, not what you look like. It’s also about living a positive life and helping those who are in need. It’s about being the best human being you can possibly be. That’s my definition in a nutshell.
I was curious to find out how other Latinas from different parts of the country viewed true beauty. I asked, and 15 answered. On a side note, I’m so honored to know these women.
