This past month we have had some amazing women step up to stop the stigma of hiding your natural beauty by starting the process in going grey. These women inspired me to start embracing my natural beauty and I want to inspire other women to join in on embracing theirs, too. Whatever age you may be, let’s flaunt it together!
This inspired me to start thinking of other things we should start embracing. Why aren’t we embracing who we are as people? What is it that makes you, you? When did it all start that we had to hide who we are? We should be nothing but happy in our own skin. My feelings towards this were also sparked by Aveda’s new campaign “Know What You’re Made of” and if you follow our socials you will notice we post a lot about it. The thing is, posting and truly embracing ourselves are two different things. My question is, why are we holding back from allowing others from getting to know who we really are? The fact that all these women are starting to embrace their natural hair color makes me want to start embracing things about myself that I try to conceal. On that note, I decided I am going to try to go 3 days without makeup. I have put a lot of work into my skincare routine and have become really happy with how my skin has turned out. I used to always feel the need to wear makeup to cover up the unevenness and bumps I had. Now that a lot of that has changed I need to start embracing how it looks and flaunt what I have! So I am challenging all of you to come up with one thing you try to conceal and flaunt it! Only if it’s for a day it’s still a step in the right direction. Continue to try to make it longer until it becomes something you are confident in. I will keep you posted on how my challenge goes for myself! Let me know if you think of something else we should be embracing that we don’t. Tell me how your challenge goes, I’d love to hear about it!
