I remember how much I looked up to my two older sisters as I grew up. I remember watching them putting on makeup, doing their hair, wearing cute clothes. I wished I was them! They were the ones who taught me how to shave my legs and pluck my eyebrows. They showed me how to use makeup. It was so much fun having the two of them to help me as I grew. They helped me to have confidence and feel beautiful.
As I’ve grown older, my perception of beauty has changed so much. I am no longer obsessed with looks, and having to look a certain way. Beauty for me, really has become about the person that I am. The way I treat others, the way I act. The things I accomplish. That is what makes me beautiful. Looks fade, but those things last your whole life.
I have always loved how Dove chooses to show real women and their beauty. That’s because Dove know that “real beauty is shaped by real women”. This spring they are celebrating that by sharing inspiring beauty stories. Using the hastag #BeautyStory, share on social media who taught you to make Dove part of your beauty routine. With Mother’s day just happening, this is a great way to celebrate moms, and women who have shaped you to feel beautiful. It is also a great way to share and motivate other women to find their real beauty. And I am all about lifting each other up as women!
Here is a great Dove #BeautyStory video…
During the month of May stop by your local Walgreens or Duane Reade because they are having a month long beauty event. Go to the beauty counter or find a beauty advisor and ask for a $2.00 off Dove product coupon (coupon valid through 7/24/15). Also be sure to get your free Dove sample (while supplies last).
