New #MyBeautyMySay Campaign Encourages Women to Celebrate Self-Image on Their Terms

Posted on 18 Jul 2016 by Anna Scott
A new campaign launched by beauty brand Dove is aiming to help women reclaim their self-image and celebrate it on their own terms. With many women and girls still being judged on their physical appearance rather than their achievements, #MyBeautyMySay wants women to shout about their accomplishments and inspire to younger girls not to hate themselves or their looks because of what society dictates.

With this in mind and in the spirit of #MyBeautyMySay, we thought we’d take a look at some beauty products that celebrate and protect natural beauty and attributes rather than cover them up, whether it’s a specific hair or skin type, or even just treating yourself to a beauty product for your own benefit rather than anyone else’s…


Afro or Course Hair

Natural curls demand attentions, mostly in the way of intense moisturisation, but thanks to an increasingly large selection of brands and products, afro hair is now very well catered for on the UK market. Here are a few top picks for protecting those gorgeous curls…

Bath Time Treats

The best thing about bath products is that you’re buying them just for yourself, not to impress anyone else. In this sense they’re the ultimate beauty treat, so next time you have a few pounds to spare on a slightly more luxurious beauty product, why not give yourself the bath time you deserve with one of these three?
