When my daughter was born I had to redefine the word beauty to myself. I wasn’t a super young mom at 22, but up to that point I did define beauty as the way a woman looked. Of course that’s not the way I wanted to portray beauty to my daughter as she grew up. I wanted her to hear the word beauty and think of words like confidence, kindness, respectfulness and compassion.

But I had to believe that myself in order for her to believe it too, because young people quickly pick up on ‘say one thing, do another.’ I had to show her that real beauty consists of all those things and it can also include scarred skin, an asymmetrical face and short legs ← all of which I have. I need to show her that I believed I was beautiful, so that she would know she is beautiful..just the way she is. Knowing that she’s beautiful inside and out, is building her self-esteem and reinforces the fact that SHE can choose the definition of beauty for herself and not let anyone pull her down about how she may look.

Join Dove® in Redefining Real Beauty

It’s been 10 years now that Dove® first introduced their campaign for Real Beauty, and I’m glad I can share along with them and Walgreens to start conversations on self esteem and redefine what it means to be beautiful.

Deep Moisture Body Wash with NutriumMoisture®: Dove® Deep Moisture Body Wash with NutriumMoisture® features 100% natural moisturizers that can absorb completely to nourish skin deep down. Plus, an improved formula gives your skin the proven best care.

White Beauty Bar: Dove® contains pure moisturizing cream and mild cleansers that leave skin clean, soft and smooth. Soap, on the other hand, contains drying ingredients that strip skin of its natural moisture, leaving it feeling dry and tight.

Invisible Solids, Powder (Deo): Invisible Solid in Powder scent glides on clear to provide 24- hour odor and wetness protection. It’s formulated with Dove® moisturizers to give you soft, smooth underarms with a light, powder-fresh fragrance.
