Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

If you look good, you feel good.

Originally this post was going to be about how if you like how you look then you shouldn’t care what everyone else thinks.

Then I started thinking about how body shaming has turned to people being too skinny. Fat is becoming the new beautiful.

Except that fat is not healthy. But it’s becoming the norm in the United States. And now I am being attacked as someone who is skinny.

My ideal beauty is natural, healthy. I really don’t like wearing makeup so I want my skin to look beautiful without it. That means I take care of myself and I’m always looking for natural ways to take care of my beauty routine. I am starting to get to the point where I am finding what truly works for me. It is taking me a long time, but to me it is worth it. If I can be beautiful by being healthy, then I’m healthy.

Healthy should be the new beautiful. If you’re healthy and you like the way you look, then no one else’s opinion should matter.
