#BeYourBeauty – A Step by Step Guide on How to be Beautiful…
We’ve all seen magazine article headings like this. We’ve probably read our fair share too, in the hope that one day, one of these expensive moisturisers will deliver that wrinkle free skin; that diet tea is going to give us those toned abs; those ‘3 easy steps to body goals’ will finally get us that illusive ‘beach ready.
But the truth is, none of these things are ever going to live up to their claims. None of these things will make us beautiful.
Today, we’re going to let you in on a little secret: We know exactly how you can be beautiful…
You can spend all the money in the world on beauty products to give you the ‘perfect’ skin, the ‘ideal’ hair and ‘dream’ figure, but true beauty comes down to what’s going on on the inside, not what you’re putting onto the outside.
There is nothing more beautiful that seeing someone’s inner truth reflected on the outside and this is something that cannot be found in a bottle. Our flaws and idiosyncrasies, individuality and truth is what makes us all unique and the very definition of beauty.
Your first step in our guide on ‘how to be beautiful’ is to #BeYourBeauty – wear your uniqueness with pride and know that you are beautiful because you are you, not because you strive to be anyone else.
Reveal Your Truth
Showing your inner self has the potential to be an incredibly challenging task, as there’s no denying that to expose your soft underbelly is to be vulnerable, but this is where the purest form of beauty lies.
We delve into the inner sanctum of womanhood with our Innocence Woman in our WIW campaign, a part of each and every woman that is held dear and close to her heart, pure and real; honest and true.
True beauty only ever comes from the truest version of yourself and this is what you will find if you dig deep into your soul. To reveal this to those around you takes courage and confidence, but this is what makes it so wonderful.
Be brave – show yourself.
Discover Your Wilderness
To #BeYourBeauty, feeling at one with yourself is a must and to achieve that, you need to feel at one with your environment too.
Where-ever you feel at home, whether that’s in the city, in the country or anywhere as long as you have your loved ones by your side, a woman in her ‘wilderness’ is whole.
We all create our own versions of the world and if we allow ourselves the freedom to roam without boundaries and live free from the constraints of negative views and oppression, we will also be allowing ourselves the freedom to be beautiful in our own, personal way.
Just as a tropical rainstorm is beautiful; just as the night sky is boundless and mysterious and all encompassing; just as a forest filled with ancient trees leaves us in awe: a woman is a force of nature in and of herself and she is every bit as strong and every bit as beautiful as the unimaginable wonder of this world.
Beauty in it’s most honest form is strength like none-other. To stand firmly in what you believe and who you believe in and to know your own power brings the beauty that is so vibrant on the inside out into full view.
Do not be weakened by negative views. Do not bend or change your shape to fit in with ‘ideals’, but rather be flexible and fluid to flow through life with great ease and pliability yet anchored to your roots, grounded in spirit.
As Lao Tzu once said: “nothing is more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it”
Hold the power of your own beauty with pride and do not be afraid to be you.
