NuGlow is proud to link our readers to BlogHer’s “Own Your Beauty” page. We are firm believers in the fact that everyone is beautiful, and that there is no one standard of beauty. We want to help spread the word that it is the individual beauty of each person’s face and mien that define what true beauty is.
Not Hollywood. Not magazines. Not marketing. Not ads.
None of those are about real people, our friends, neighbors, colleagues, sons, daughters, spouses, parents. . . . . all of those real people whose beauty is a combination of their individual faces, smiles, personalities, thoughts, personalities, and glimpses into their wonderful, unique souls.
NuGlow does not claim to change a person’s face. NuGlow just promises to make each person’s skin healthier, all the way through, and to give each person’s already-beautiful face a glow that enhances what was already there: true beauty.
In nursery rhymes and poems, beautiful and beloved horses are often described as “dapple, or dappled, gray.” Does this mean that the horse is smooth and evenly colored? Not at all. Dappled means spotted. In other words the described horse is beautiful BECAUSE its body is not perfect.
Perfect things are all alike. It’s our imperfections, our differences, that make us beautiful. Beautiful must be unique to be truly beautiful. Echoes and clones are not unique. Dime a dozen is not unique.
We are made beautiful, ie unique, by our differences, not our conformities. People, human beings, were never meant to be cookie-cuttered.
It’s hard to tell one 60-pound runway model from the next 60-pound runway model. They have no individuality. They all look like walking coat hangars.
Marilyn Monroe, on the other hand, was beautiful. But look closely at her face; it’s not smoothly even; she’s got a big mole on her face. Did that make her less beautiful? No, it made her more beautiful. It made her unique.
Marilyn Monroe was dappled. The sight made other women run out and buy fake moles to put on THEIR faces.
Celebrate your uniqueness, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. That’s what makes you beautiful.
There is a crack, a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in. — Leonard Cohen
