Nowadays, we are flooded with campaigns on how to achieve a certain look or get a certain style by buying some products or getting some procedures. The media – the television, radio, print ads, and movies are flooded with what they say is beautiful. They advertise the need to fit into a definition of beauty that is so narrow, only a few can be considered beautiful. But what really is beautiful?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder might be a cliché, but it would not be one if it were not true. Sure, wearing makeup feels good. Looking good to other people feels good. Being accepted by society feels good. But how can you really be happy when all you do is strive to get other people’s approval of how you look? How can you be truly happy if you keep watching what you eat so as to not gain weight? How can you be truly happy if you do not enjoy the things you do just so you could make the people around you happy?
Beauty is not just something you see. It is something you feel. A happy heart radiates beauty. So, the best beauty tip anyone can give is this, accept yourself. You are made the way you are, you are made beautiful. Looking different from other people does not make you ugly, it makes you unique. So love yourself and love others too. Nothing is more beautiful than a beautiful heart.
