Hey Enlightened Beauties!

Have you ever wondered how to achieve skin like Barbie's? While we know that Barbie is just a doll, that perfectly smooth and glowing skin she sports is definitely something we all wish for. 

But is it attainable? The answer is a resounding YES!

If you’re new around here, welcome! I'm Morgan, the founder of Enlightened Beauty. After 17+ years in the beauty industry and working with some of the best names in the business, I can assure you that the secret to radiant skin doesn't solely lie in fancy creams and serums. It's about a holistic approach that starts with nourishing our mind, body, and soul.

Let’s dive right in!

1: The Importance of a Light-Hearted Attitude

Life is a beautiful journey, but let's admit, it can get tough at times. And when it does, remember not to take it too seriously. After all, it's the bumps in the road that shape us and make us stronger. 

When I was moving from one city to another, juggling my roles, and growing my business, I realized the power of going with the flow. One of the best things you can do is allow yourself the grace to let go, trust the process, and remember to breathe.

2: The Power of Laughter

Laughter truly is the best medicine. It’s been scientifically proven that a good, hearty laugh can reduce stress hormones and boost our immune system. So, watch that comedy, share a joke, or laugh at your own silliness. Anything that tickles your funny bone is good for your soul and your skin!

3: Leading with Love

Always lead with love

Love is potent. It's one of the highest vibrations we can emit. When we do things with love, we not only uplift ourselves but also those around us. My journey of creating Enlightened Beauty was driven by love — love for skincare, love for helping others, and love for our planet. Embrace love in all you do. Love yourself, love your skin, and the world around you.

4: Finding Joy in Simplicity

Find the fun in the simple things

Sometimes, joy lies in the simplest of things. Embracing hobbies outside our professional lives is a wonderful way to invite joy and balance into our lives. These hobbies, simple yet fulfilling, can act as an antidote to stress, which can reflect positively on our skin.

Did you know there's a Yoga Barbie who likely finds tranquility in her sun salutations or a Chef Barbie who’s all about creating new recipes? Even Artist Barbie, with her sketchpad and colors, would surely find joy and stress-relief in her artistic creations.

So let's take a cue from Barbie: embrace the beauty of simplicity and make time for hobbies. Dedicate time to enjoy life beyond work, and watch as your skin glows with newfound health and vitality.

5: The Power of Dressing Up

Dress up and feel pretty as often as possible

Who doesn't remember playing dress-up with Barbie dolls and feeling a sense of joy and self-expression? Whether she was going to a ball in a glamorous gown or heading out for a casual day in a chic outfit, Barbie always had the perfect ensemble for every occasion. She taught us that dressing up is about more than looking good—it's about feeling good.

There's an undeniable confidence that comes from putting effort into how you dress. So go ahead, wear your favorite dress, put on some lipstick, and watch your inner glow reflect on your skin.

6: Embrace Career Changes

Change your profession as many times as you want!

Your career should fill your soul and not just your pockets. If it doesn't, it might be time for a change. I've made several transitions throughout my career, and each of them brought me closer to what I truly wanted to do. Remember, you've got one life. Live it in a way that makes you happy.

7: The Value of Friendship

Hang out with your friends as often as possible

Just as Barbie has her wide circle of friends — from Ken to Midge to Skipper — it's essential for us to maintain strong, healthy relationships in our lives. 

In this digital age, nothing beats the warmth of a genuine, face-to-face interaction. Our bonds with our friends can be a source of strength, joy, and yes, even healthy skin!

Drawing from Barbie's social playbook, make it a point to connect with your friends in person as often as you can. Organize a get-together, meet for coffee, go for a walk in the park, or even host a 'Barbie-themed' night where you all go watch the Barbie movie together!

8: Don’t Forget Skincare!

Of course, we can't forget about skincare! A regular skincare routine, coupled with professional treatments, can work wonders for your skin. But remember, it's not just about the products you apply but also about your lifestyle and emotions. Skin health, like all things, is best approached holistically.

As you start implementing these Barbie-inspired habits into your life, remember that the journey to radiant skin is a marathon, not a sprint. Consistency is key, and each small step you take is a victory in itself. So let's channel our inner Barbie, celebrating our uniqueness and allowing our natural beauty to shine from the inside out.
