I have three daughters.
In this complicated world we live in, I feel like I’m constantly doing battle to balance the forces of good and evil in how I raise them to love themselves.
Sure, we could go to the extreme of looking like we live in an episode of Little House on the Prairie and that might be easier sometimes. But it’s not me.
My girls are naturally kind and modest. They are beautiful on the inside and outside. They have good genes.
But I want them to learn about good skincare. I want them to learn how and when to apply makeup well.
I teach my kids that our skin is a powerful filtering organ and if it’s upset, then we have to heal ourselves from the inside – with food and rest.
I want my daughters to know that there’s so much more than makeup and clothes and a pretty face.
I wish I had had better education as a teen when it came to a beauty routine. I educated myself with Glamour and Redbook magazines, which left a lot of questions unanswered, and even though they were a bit tamer in the ’80s than the magazines are now, they were hyper-sexualized. I learned styling techniques but not much about heart beauty.
