Beauty Quotes to Live By

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.
