One of these quotes related to Beauty Truths & Beauty Myths. As I make bath and body products, I couldn't not post something! I thought I'd share my post with you ...
"I think the cosmetic surgery industry plays on our innate fears of our own physical and mental view of ourselves and manipulates them so that we think we're not good enough... it makes us judge ourselves against some supposed societal views of the norm that are damaging emotionally, physically and metnally. Whislt there is always the case for plastic surgery for those who actualy require it (burns victims, etc), I don't believe that this cynical marketing used by cosmetic surgery firms should have a place outside of medical requirements.
It is a total myth that more expensive cosmetics will be better for you - and I should know, as I make my own! My other life is making handcrafted soap and body buttters but I also make my own facial moisturisers, shampoo and cleansing oils - and my skin has never been better! I wash my face every day with the soap I make and cleanse every night with my cleansing oil and use my own moisturiser daily. Last week four people said, "How the hell do you look younger today?". I was chuffed! I think treating your skin well and with care will not only make it feel good, but you'll feel good about yourself too and people will notice and comment and you'll feel great. There's a lot to be said about loving yourself enough to treat yourself well but that does not have to mean expensive lotions and potions!

I really wanted to share this book and this quote with you as it's so applicable to the work I do with Soaperstar. The book is an amazing read and I totally recommend it to any woman ... it's great to see that so many of us think so alike and that none of us are alone in our views.
