It’s every women’s desire to have healthy, glowing and beautiful skin. When our skin looks radiant, we feel empowered and confident. But, let’s be real here, we live in a society that praises and admires those with the perfect complexion. We are judged by our appearance, and in essence told we are not beautiful enough unless we do this…or that.
Some women have been pushed by social pressure to chisel and tweak their looks with piles of makeup, botox, fake eyelashes, lip fillers and other treatments! These offer illusions of beauty! Hey, don’t get me wrong, I like makeup. But there’s a difference between wearing makeup for fun and enhancing your beauty than succumbing to social strains and investing in various treatment just to be socially accepted.
Other’s are jumping on the latest trend of going au naturale, and the idea is catching on. Celebrities like Alicia Keys, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, and Beyoncé have joined the no makeup movement. The empowering message they are sending out is not so much anti-makeup, as it is about owning your own natural beauty. It’s about being okay in your skin. It’s about accepting your freckles and flaws. It’s about self-respect, self-love, self-acceptance and confidence. Women are encouraged to express and redefine beauty on their own terms. They are inspired to embrace their own unique beauty whether society likes it or not. Rock your true beauty!
