I love the message that the ladies at Beauty Redefined are spreading. If you haven't read any of their posts (or seen their billboards, if you live in Utah), their message is about denying the media message of beauty (an unattainable standard that requires us to consume products, diet, have surgeries, etc.) and sharing what it really means to be beautiful IN REAL LIFE. Not the airbrushed fantasy land that we think is real life, but REAL LIFE. Real women. Real beauty. The kind that exudes confidence not because it is blemish free, but because it is genuine.
It is easy to join in- choosing just one of these suggestions to focus on can help change the way beauty is portrayed. If any of you feel so inclined, I'd love to hear your thoughts and how you are going to help "take back beauty."
PS- I know this is straying a bit from my normal subject matter, but I feel really strongly that this message needs to spread. Plus, this is my blog, and I do what I want *waves finger sassily* :)
