Beauty Blogfest 2013- What is REAL BEAUTY

What is real beauty? Who determines what defines beauty? Mainstream media would have you believe that beauty is about looking younger by removing these all effects of aging and doing whatever it takes to have a slim figure.

Everyone should want smooth, wrinkle free skin. Buy these products to help

Everyone should want skinny body.  Take these supplements to help

My estimation of what is true beauty goes against all of what mainstream media would have you believe it to be.

My Nana is 90 years old and the most beautiful woman I know.

mi abuela

She embraces her age, boasting at every opportunity, “Do you know how old I am my dear?” Yes, she uses skincare products like, Noxzema The Original Deep Cleansing Cream, 12 Ounce, Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E — 13.5 fl oz, NOW Foods Jojoba Oil Pure, 4 ounce. These are not to hide her age or smooth the wrinkles, but care for her skin in the best way as she gets older.

She is not, and never was, a size 2. Nor does she want to be.

As long as she is healthy, she is happy.

She has a zeal for life that is shared with all that know her.

Her hands might be moisturized with and nails painted with

but what is important is her generosity and willingness to extend assistance to those list for it.

Her lips might be tinted with lipstick

but what is important are the kind words that come from her mouth

to encourage anyone feeling defeated.

Her feet might be shod in

(let’s face it, these are not that pretty but they are comfortable )

but what is important is that she is always ready to go wherever

if it is within her power to visit whenever the need may be.

Over the years she may have lost some of her vigor,

but her heart is pure like solid gold, her spirit is indefatigable,

and her sense of style and beauty is timeless.
