What is beauty really?

If you think about it, it’s kind of sad, how we have an idealistic belief of how a beautiful woman or a handsome man looks like. When we look into the mirror, we can’t help but compare ourselves and our body to a Victoria secret model or our favourite actress. We often don’t think that we are beautiful.

This is because our idea of beauty is fake. We could never live up to that idea. The pictures of models in advertisements are so perfect and ideal. But why? -because we have found a way using photography skills and photoshop to make us look sleek, slim and perfect. However, we all look different, we are not perfect. Some girls may have freckles, some have no symmetry in their face. Some are skinnier, while others are naturally broader. But why do we have to say that they are not beautiful? Why do we have to make everybody believe that unless they look like a model they are not beautiful?

Therefore I think, we should stop comparing ourselves to someone else, and appreciate ourselves for who we are! Tell yourself you are beautiful. When you yourself think that you are, you will radiate that feeling to others and they will automatically think the same. It is that simple. You don’t need make-up, you don’t need plastic surgery. All you need is some confidence and a smile on your face and you can be the most beautiful person ever. Remember – real beauty comes from within. It doesn’t matter what others think. It only matters what you think, because frankly, you are the one who has to live with your body your entire life.



Dove made this amazing video, showing that there is no such thing as a perfect face, not even the ones on advertisements. This video is where I got my inspiration from.
