Do you ever have those days where you just feel so imperfect?
I hate to admit that I have those days far too often. My hair doesn’t fall right, I have a zit making an appearance on the right side of my chin, I forget to put on deodorant and “bloated” is my excuse for the muffin top I’m sporting. Yeah… one of those days.
It happens to us all. It’s not pretty, but what’s can be pretty is how you handle it. The most beautiful thing can be how you react to the cards you’re dealt with in life. Whether that be with grace or otherwise is up to you.
No matter the day and no matter the struggles you face, just remember that you are so incredibly and imperfectly beautiful. In fact, it’s our imperfections and our willingness to let our light shine right through them that makes us who we are. The point is to not try and hide those imperfections, but to show them off as a part of your whole person.
I’ve always prided myself on my “less is more” approach when it comes to my make-up and beauty routine. I moisturize two times daily with AVEENO® ULTRA-CALMING® DAILY MOISTURIZER BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 15 in the morning and at night. In the morning after my face is soft and moisturized, I apply a thin layer of foundation, a little powder to set it, some blush to accentuate my cheekbones and some eyeliner and mascara to finish the look. It takes me all of five minutes and if there’s a sun spot, freckle or pimple left behind? So be it. This is me. And I love that AVEENO® helps me let my “me” shine.
Even if it takes a sticky note on your mirror to remind you every single day, don’t forget to tell yourself that you’re beautiful in every way. You’re kind and you’re caring and you’re so very beautiful on the inside and you’re absolutely beautiful in every way on the outside as well. Don’t let anyone bring you down and don’t let anyone try and dull your shine and your sparkle.
Life gets busy and life gets hectic, but don’t ever forget to tell yourself that you’re beautiful. Because you most certainly are!
How do you show of your beautiful imperfections everyday?
