Helping you feel confident and amazing every day is our #1 goal at AVIE! Unfortunately, most of us don’t always feel our best. A recent beauty poll by Cosmo revealed that more than 60 percent of people are self-conscious about at least one aspect of their appearance. But the truth is, you are gorgeous exactly the way you are, perceived imperfections and all! Beauty isn’t about your waist size or eye color. And if you don’t believe me, here are two studies to back me up:
Your kindness is radiant!
Forget about the fact that you’re 10 pounds over your “ideal” weight! When it comes to being considered attractive, there’s no such thing as an ideal body type or look. In numerous studies, when people had to rate a person’s level of attractiveness, no particular beauty ideal prevailed. Instead, the highest ratings consistently went to the people who were labeled as “kind”, “honest,” or other positive personality traits.
Your smiling face is gorgeous!
According to numerous studies, your smile has the power to not only make you more attractive but also to feel happier. What’s more, your smile can boost other people’s happiness, too! Smiling sends a signal to your brain, stimulating your reward system and increasing your endorphins. Your smile can also activate another person’s reward system, increasing their happy hormones. But that’s not the end of it. Smiling is literally good for your health, providing important health benefits like reducing anxiety and lowering your heart rate and blood pressure.
