Dove has a really cool campaign called “Real Beauty” – and in this video they had women describe themselves to a police sketch artist, then have someone else describe them… the difference in what these women see in themselves as opposed to how others see them is pretty drastic:
The Bible has lots of great verses talking about true beauty, here’s one of my favorites:
1 Peter 3:3-4
3 Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. 4 Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.
Jonny Diaz sums it up really well in his song “More Beautiful You”
