About Faces of Beauty

What is beauty?  How are you beautiful?  What do you love about yourself?

Do you know that you are beautiful just the way you are?

Faces of Beauty is on a mission to celebrate the incredible and unique beauty in all of us.  It throws off the societal pressures to look a certain way and gives an opportunity to share what we love about ourselves.

The hope is that Faces of Beauty will help start a revolution of men, women, and children learning to love themselves just as they are!

Just take a (happy!) picture of yourself from the shoulders up and email it to Heather at heathersdish @ gmail [dot] com.  Make sure you include a little note (500 words or less) about what you love about yourself, what makes you beautiful, and/or your journey to learning to love yourself.  The photos will be posted one photo and paragraph each day under your first name.  Please let me know if you would like to be linked back to your blog/website if applicable!

  2. Hi Heather- I just wanted to tell you how much I love this concept! My young daughter and her friends have been posting notes all over school telling people they are beautful (she saw the person who started that movement on tv or you tube or something). I can’t wait to show her your site! I know she will love it! Thanks for encouraging women to embrace their beauty (instead of trying to conform to the ridiculous, impossible magazine standards)! You are beautiful!

  4. Finding this site has given me such hope. I am that person who hates herself to the core. I always thought it was what was on the outside first that counted. So, I have spent my miserable life not developing a personality. So, now I am on a mission to fix myself with the help of therapy. I want to be able to say I love myself inside and out and actually mean it. Life is too short to end up not being able to enjoy it because I always feel less than. Reading these stories makes me determined to be content with who I am and not always being full of self-hate because I wasn’t born model material. Thank you so much!!! I plan to post my picture in the future when I have done some hard work on myself.

  6. This is the first time I’ve come across this site (thanks Janetha!) and love it. If I can ever take a picture of myself with my janky camera, I’ll write something up for possible inclusion.

    Very cool!

  7. Thank you for this beautiful website!

    I’ve struggled less with my own ideals of beauty and more with other women’s. I have struggled with this most in the workplace and I have worked with beautiful women who did not know they are beautiful. These lovely ladies spoke and behaved as if they were never quite good enough, and the compliments they gave to others were on the basis of false ideals of beauty, i.e. “you look so thin today!”

    As women I feel it’s so important to build each other up and support each other for being the beautiful beings we already are, as well as recognizing the beauty in ourselves.

    • p.s. I live in Colorado, too, and I’m inspired every day by the beauty of this state. I cannot imagine living anywhere else and loving it as much as I love Colorado. Much of my own sense of beauty comes from seeing beauty all around me every day.

  8. I just wanted to comment and say that I really enjoyed reading your blog post here. It was very informative and I also digg the way you write! Keep it up and I’ll be back to read more in the future

  9. My adopted parents continually told me I was fat and a dummy. Even when I won a beauty contest they said the same hurtful words. I believed them, and carry those hateful words in my head. But I am glad for a loving savior, and for all those affirmations on this site and from friends. But it is hard to let go of hateful words.
