Dove Self-Esteem

Many girls all around the world have a hobby or an activity they really enjoy. However, many of them stop doing what they love because of how they look or because of what others think of them. That is not fair, and this great video helps promote self-esteem for girls and young women.

Ever since I started following the Dove Campaign for the improvement of the self-esteem, I really appreciated to see how there are people in this world that want to spread a great message- it’s not just about being externally beautiful, but it’s inner beauty, confidence, attitude, and self-esteem that matter. As this video shows us, building self-esteem in young girls will help them grow and become who THEY want to be and not be influenced by society or the media. Dove’s Campaign is a great movement because it also inspires all of those beautiful girls who don’t believe in their beauty and power and because of that, I am so happy that the campaign exists and is still going. Below is another video, from Dove, that I wanted to share with you. The video shows us the effort and how committed they are to make girls realize what they are worth.

I hope that this videos help you realize, once again, of the importance of knowing the power that inner beauty has. We should all learn from this beautiful videos and realize how the word “beautiful” has so many meaning yet to be beautiful, one has to have internal beauty. It is on our hands to create, nurture, or maintain that internal beauty and always remember how much it is worth.

I hope you enjoyed the videos and help spread the word, just like Dove, about the magic of internal beauty because the importance of inner beauty is much more than that of outer beauty!

Inner Beauty Make-Up: SMILING

Smiling is a grand way to make yourself stand out from the crowd. Though some people are born with great hair, bodies, hair, etc, everyone is born with a great smile. Take advantage of it and use it! We are all lucky to have the inner beauty make-up incorporated in our faces already. It is proven that smiles are one of the first things people notice when they look at you. If you spot someone smiling, you are drawn to him/her because you want to know what is so good that is making him/her smile. Well, try smiling as much as you can because this attention factor makes you show your beauty from your inside and out.

According to Mark Stibich, who received his PhD in health behavior from The Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health, there are so many reasons as to why people should smile. The top ten reasons why you should do it are the following:

Smiling…

  • Makes us attractive
  • Changes our mood
  • Is contagious
  • Relieves stress
  • Boosts your immune system
  • Lowers your blood pressure
  • Releases endorphins, natural pain killers and serotonin
  • Lifts the face and makes you look younger
  • Makes you seem successful
  • Helps you stay positive

Do you notice any negative outcomes of smiling? NO. NO. NO. It is great for you, your health, and even the people who surround you. It brings so many good things to your life and if you already have a mouth in your face, use it and smile! I like referring to a smile as an inner beauty make-up because it makes you look so much better not just from the outside, but from your inside! Always remember that smiling brings so many benefits and positive things to you, so do it as often as possible!
