Now, as a mom herself, Bell wants to impart some of her own lessons to her kids — not just around beauty itself, but around beauty standards, self-esteem, and building confidence. (Because there's definitely no standing in line at Hudson's in their future.)
"I want to teach them that number one, beauty is a rainbow," she said. "It's all different colours. It's all different shapes. It's all different sizes. It's all different styles. Beauty is subjective. It's not a standard. So let's start with the correct definitions."
She continued, "Beauty is also a feeling; it's not a visual. And that you will feel attractive if you are happy, you will be happy if you have self-esteem, you will have self-esteem if you are doing esteemable acts, whether that's helping someone because you can, maintaining joy and trying to spread it, actively trying to reduce someone else's suffering, or taking some time for yourself. Anything that makes you feel happy, you will feel attractive."
That's right, everyone: Clinique Bonus or not.
