A Beauty and Self-Esteem Latina Blogger Connection with Dove

Dove is committed to inspiring all women and girls to reach their full potential - a mission we strongly believe in here at Latina Bloggers Connect. One hundred Latina Bloggers have been asked to share how they would talk to a young girl about beauty and self-esteem. We're very excited to announce this new collaboration with Dove!

According to Dove global research, 72% of girls (ages 10-17) feel tremendous pressure to be beautiful. Only 11 percent of girls (ages 10-17) are comfortable using the word beautiful to describe themselves. When girls feel bad about their looks more than 60 percent globally (age 15 to 17) avoid normal daily activities such as attending school, going to the doctor, or even giving their opinion.

Dove has launched a campaign encouraging discussions about what is means to be beautiful called "Let's Talk." To learn more about this initiative, please head over to Vive Mejor. A simple act, such as starting a conversation about beauty, can make a world of difference.

Please follow the hashtag #DoveInspired to read more about the importance of having these talks with our girls. For more information about "Let's Talk", become a fan on Facebook.
