What sort of "beauty legacy" do you leave for the girls (or even women) in your life? You don't necessarily need to have daughters to have an influence—some of us teach, some of us coach, some of us are caregivers in other ways, and some of us are just generally looked up to by the younger generation. You might be a role model without even realizing it!
For me, I think helping girls to build high self-esteem and a sense of empathy/kindness are the most important things. Feeling confident in yourself is something that can carry over into many other areas of your life and help you succeed at more than just feeling pretty, y'know? Feelings of beauty are made, not born. And sometimes 'tis better to be be kind than "right", I always say. Beautiful on the inside!
So how can you influence the younger generation? The most powerful thing you can do is lead by example and live confidently and kindly yourself.
Dove is helping build girls' self-esteem with the #FeelBeautifulFor campaign. Check out their page on the Walmart website to watch a video about the Dove Self-Esteem Project—you can also share your own thoughts about the project on social media using tag #FeelBeautifulFor and check out what others are saying! And of course you can find tons of great deals on Dove products as well.

I know a trip to the spa would certainly increase my confidence, heh.
Are you mindful of setting a good example for other women in your life? Who do you #FeelBeautifulFor?
