Over the past decade of being an Esthetician and experiencing this world as a woman I have felt and recognize a common theme. As a society, we have become extremely critical of ourselves and that theme has permeated into our subconscious beliefs. The Beauty Industry as is, would encourage us to believe that the solution to our feelings of “Not Good Enough” is to spend a lot of money on products that will “fix us.” The plethora of junk we are being sold is endless. There are amazing claims tempting us to buy products with the promise that this will finally be the solution that we have been looking for. As a beauty product consumer myself, I wanted to believe the claims and I trusted that the money I was spending would be worth it. For years, I bought into the lies that I was “flawed” and that the only way to be attractive is to have a flawless youthful face which is a bold-faced lie. We are our own worst critic and that mindset has to change. The beauty industry subconsciously tells us that unless we are young and youthful, we are flawed or less than. I adamantly disagree and would counter that argument by saying that true beauty is timeless comes in an infinite number of ways that are unique to every organism.
We are each beautiful and unique and possess interesting and varying facial features. We are each perfectly imperfect in these body’s and that is what makes each of us so unique and beautiful. Beauty is a reflection of the whole and we receive back exactly what we put into ourselves. The truth in embracing our own unique beauty is to have balance in all things.
It is my intention to revolutionize the beauty industry as we know it. My intention is to shift the perspective of “Not Good Enough” to “I embrace myself exactly as I am and I will do the best I can with the skin that I am in.”
Why do we have to be perfect? Being perfect is way too much work and we have so many other things to focus on. I recognize that I am Good Enough even with my flaws, fluctuating weight, some cellulite and some wrinkles. The idea of perfection is absolute Bullshit. My deep knowing is that our perfection lies in our imperfections. It may sound cliché, but the truth is that our beauty comes from the inside. True beauty at its essence is an attractive embodied energy of sweetness, grace, love, positivity and divinity. That is worth exploring. That is worth our energy, time and money. Beauty is not just skin deep. True breathtaking beauty can be found in all places and in all people.
Let’s celebrate our individuality and these beautiful bodies which were perfectly designed and beautifully made.
