Beauty & A Healthy Attitude

By Beauty & Skincare Expert: Ruby Chehade


I was all pumped and ready to write a blog about one of my favourite scent from the Middle East – Oud, I just love it but I feel the need to write about something else today. I love the work I do and I am rather passionate about it and I love helping others feel their best. For me when I am giving advise or providing someone with a treatment or doing someone's make up I do it because I want that person on the receiving end to feel good about themselves. I would never tell someone that I didn't know what they should be doing I only give my advise when asked to do so. Which leads me to what I am about to share with you something that happened to me today.


I was at the beach today relaxing enjoying the sun with a couple of friends, a friend of theirs came along and joined us. After a while of swimming, eating, drinking, drying off in the sun this person that joined us her daughter and son came along and the daughter looked at me up and down a few times – I found this very inappropriate as she made no attempt to be discrete. She then said this to me in Arabic I might add that I would look a lot better if I worked on my “bronzage” as it would make me look a lot thinner! My initial reaction was to say to this young girl “Do you own a mirror?” as at her age I was half her size but I actually felt sad for her as this is a reflection of her parenting and the image that she is growing up with. Whilst I lay there been judged with no make up on, just a plain bikini I looked over to her mother who had her hair done for the beach, a full face of make up on, eyelash extensions freshly done, freshly done manicure and pedicure with artwork and diamonties, hair extensions – this does not appeal to me at all but if it appeals to others that's great!


My point in all this I am all about feeling good about yourself I am all about healthy skin there are days that I love to wear make up and then there are days I don't. I love getting my hair done but I don't judge others that don't. I am here to help people feel good about themselves and I feel sorry for the youth in the Middle East. I just came back from Greece and I didn't feel like I was been looked up and down when I was there sadly I always feel judged in Middle Eastern countries and this saddens me.


I hope that my blog doesn't make anyone feel bad it is merely here for those that feel they need a little help with their skin care and make up. I would like to think I do my best to make people feel better about themselves. We all have something unique to offer and beauty is mostly found in the heart and soul.


So to all of you that read my blogs I want you all to know I think you are beautiful people and I hope you all feel comfortable in your own skin be it with no make up on or be it with a tonne of make up on, if that's what makes you happy then go for it! Now to leave you that thought I am going to go for a swim with no make up on as that works best for me!


Have a great week and I will be talking about OUD next week!
