As you may recall, I absolutely love Dove Beauty. Most recently I hosted a Dove VisibleCare Toning Creme Body Wash Giveaway but I have featured several wonderful Dove beauty products. I love that they are moisturizing and make my skin feel great. Now, I have yet another reason to adore them. Right now (October 5th until October 7th) is the Third Annual Dove(R) Self-Esteem Weekend! It kicked off today with a
“Walk the Talk” with mentors and girls from their partner organizations (Girls, Inc., Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and Girl Scouts of the U.S.A), by marching in silence to the heart of Times Square. They marched in silence to represent all the conversations about beauty anxiety that haven’t taken place.
You can participate in this beautiful endeavor by having a conversation with a young girl in your life. Tell her how to have a great relationship with her beauty. I know for a fact how difficult it can be to accept your body at a young age. Being in the schools everyday as a sub now, I see just how mean kids are to one another. It takes thick skin to keep your head up and build self-esteem now. As an adult, we need to let young girls know that it’s important to love themselves. To correspond with this touching weekend, Dove has provided a “Let’s Talk” toolkit to help us communicate this this weekend. It includes things such as:
* How to talk to a girl in your life about self-esteem
* Real-life scenarios of when you could have a talk with a girl in your life
* How to replicate a “Let’s Talk” rally in your neighborhood
I am so proud to support a company that leads young girls to be supportive of one another and builds self-esteem. I hope you are able to talk with a young one in your life this weekend to help her transition from a child to a beautiful woman peacefully. You can see all of the ways you can get involved with the Dove Self-Esteem Weekend on their site.
Disclosure: I will be receiving a gift card and Dove® Self-Esteem charm bracelet to share in my conversation with a young girl. The opinions expressed are my own.
