Having maintained this blog for almost seven years now, it’s obvious that we at TDO think a lot about beauty. We’re always talking about new products we’ve found or are currently obsessed with or have always loved. Feeling (and sharing) beauty isn’t just skin deep to us, however — we truly believe that beauty has the power to make everyone feel confident, happy, and our best.
Recently we teamed up with Meaningful Beauty, a skincare regimen developed by Cindy Crawford and her dermatologist Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh that addresses a lot of the skin challenges faced by women everywhere. As skin ages, it beings to lose luster, moisture, and elasticity (even for supermodels!). Meaningful Beauty skincare contains a powerful super-antioxidant along with rejuvenating ingredients coenzyme Q10 and lipoic acid to help combat a lot of those signs of aging and restore vibrancy. As part of this challenge, we were encouraged to use the kit ourselves for a month. Look out for a more detailed report on how we fared with that shortly.
The other half of the challenge was to participate in some activities that embodied “meaningful beauty” to us. For me, that meant doing things that positively impact others since those are the activities I find most rewarding. This week, I surprised my overworked boyfriend with a trip to the spa where he indulged in a much needed massage. Last week, I sent my mom an early surprise holiday gift — a hydroponic herb garden so she could grow fresh ingredients right at home. When I first started this challenge, I didn’t really know what kinds of activities I was going to participate in, but as it turns out, there are so many things you can do that positively impacts other. For me, that’s what meaningful beauty means — and creating happiness and positively is surely one of the keys to eternal youthful beauty.
