What Defines Beauty?

What Defines Beauty?

natural beauty

Is it someone's smile? Their eyes? Their skin? Their body? Their spirit? 

 

The saying goes "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and I truly believe that is the truth. There is no one definition of what beauty is. We can all look at the same supermodel or actress/actor and have an opinion on whether they truly are the "sexiest" or the "prettiest".  The truth is that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, all colours, all ages, and breaks all stereotypes that beauty magazines and so called "experts" put out there.  

 

On the flip side, what can undermine someone's beauty? Definitely their attitude, behaviours and actions.  Tell me you haven't met someone who you (and most people) would define as beautiful, only to discover their personality as being disingenuous or their behaviours to not match up with your (or societal) values, thus making them far less attractive or beautiful once you scratch below the surface.  

 

Since starting this natural personal product company, Clean Kiss Organics, I even have a hard time defining what it is I do and produce. Is it a natural beauty company? Is it a health & wellness product company? Is it both? I would like to think it is both. I sometimes hesitate when I go to explain it..."I make natural products for your face, body, hair and home to help people find more health and wellness in their lives without chemicals" is my usual line.  But it's so much more than that. If a woman or man uses my products and feels more beautiful then it not only helps their outer natural beauty (quality of their skin, less wrinkles, brighter complexion, better curls, smell better) but it also helps their mental health and self-confidence.  So, isn't that really what makes someone beautiful after all? I am going to be changing my elevator pitch to "I help inspire confidence, beauty and health naturally".      

 

Personally I define beauty as someone with a kind heart, who radiates energy and selflessness, who is self aware and emotionally intelligent, and genuinely cares about others and the world around them.  Does it matter if they are overweight or have acne or wrinkles or cellulite or grey hair? Not at all. It matters if they are a good person with good intentions. 

 

So here is a challenge for you today. Find someone who inspires you and embodies true beauty. To you. By your definition. And when you pick your person, tell them so.  What a difference you will make in their day and possibly their life. That is beauty.

So you want to switch to natural deodorant and personal care products, but you've heard a multitude of horror stories from your besties about their embarrassing trials and fails that left them smelling ummm a tad ripe at their hot yoga class or by the time they've hopped off their treadmill.  This was my story and my embarrassing tale, until I decided to put an end to this nonsense and finally come up with a formulation for athletes and yogis that is strong enough to work all day yet safe, natural and doesn't contain any body-harming ingredients.

3 Proven Reasons Why You Should Add Face Oils to Your Skincare Ritual

October 09, 2019

This is a common question that I get asked. With the uprise of facial oils in Western Society, it is a good one to ask for certain. Whether you have oily, acne prone skin or dry skin, you may also be wondering about the facial oil hype and whether or not it is the right skincare solution for you. The magical panacea you have been longing for perhaps. On the flip side, I've even had some people have a complete meltdown as an adult when oil touches their face because they still remember being covered in pimples as a teenager just for coming anywhere near oil on their sensitive, hormonal faces.

If you haven't yet introduced any facial oils into your skincare ritual, I highly recommend you overcome your fears and embrace the oil. In fact, in Eastern cultures women have been using plant based oils abundantly for thousands of years. And their gorgeous, youthful complexions certainly show it.
