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

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. 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”
