You define beauty

The way you are!

Your thoughts (71)

When it comes to beauty, I only have one thing to say to every girl: shine bright like the diamond you are. We’re all Springsters so this means you are also a diamond.

Not looking like celebrities doesn’t make you unpretty. This is why my besties, Seithati and Thabi, and I started a club for girls who believe that we are gorgeous just the way we are.

I love my afro. It looks like Pearl Thusi’s, and makes me feel like a queen. My hair taught me to be comfortable in myself. It made me realise that I didn't need to change for anyone because what I have is great. Remember to keep reminding yourself this, particularly when you are feeling down!

Palesa’s skin is amazing! She glows even in winter when all of us look ashy! Her secret? Castor oil, which she buys for less than R20 at Clicks and Pick ‘n Pay. She washes her face with warm water, makes a paste with mealie powder and castor oil and rubs it in her face. She leaves it on for 30 minutes before rinsing with warm water and drying her face. She says that’s how she shows herself some love. It’s called self-care. It’s all about doing you, boo. Like taking time out to read for 30 minutes, do your nails, have a relaxing bath…

Thabi is has a colourful personality, just like her clothes. She loves turning old things into new stuff, and buys most her clothes at second hand shops. Fashion is a great way to get creative and to show your true self. Thabi says it gives her confidence because she gets to express herself all the time!

This what my crew and I love about natural beauty. It’s effortless. Nothing about the way we look is a mistake. Celebrate your looks and taste because you define beauty the way you are!

I agree with you ,its true when they say u must love your body just the way you are whether u wear a size 48 or wear children sizes at an older age ,its your body and its up to us to love our bodies and take care of it ,if we don't love it who will ? no one ,so girls I suggest we love our selves just the way we are and be proud of our bodies

Hi Springster. Pimples happen and they are a part of growing up. If they persist then you should consider drinking more water, eating less sugary foods and managing your stress (if you are stressed or under pressure). Consider saving for a face wash that targets pimples and oily skin. Also do some research on natural and cheap ways to clear pimples and clear oily skin.

Hey ... I have an afro and love braiding it from time to time , but sometimes when I unbraid it , my hair falls out and leaves some parts bald and causes me to cut my hair , what should I do ?

March 20, 2022, 8:59 p.m.

Number 1 you could stop braiding your hair but if its what you like doing you could try dark and lovely detangle spray Right after you braid your hair

I also have the same problem how can I stop it because I want to have a afro

Hi Springster, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. It looks and feel the way you want it to.

Hey Kuhlekahle, you should never have to change what you look like based on other people's opinions. As long as you are healthy and your healthcare provider says you are, then you do not have to change.

Hey ladies ,i am a young female who has just entered my stage of puberty, since I have met new friends from places all over(including school) ,i feel as If I am ugly and worthless,since they are living life to the fullest.I sometimes feel alone too,as I tend to find it hard to open up to my family and friends ...I sometimes feel left out too since all my friends are dating and I'm not because I'm ugly😢💔

Hi guys...I've been told that I look ugly in primary ,now I'm in high school and two or three guys have told me that I'm beautiful ,but I fail to believe them because they are just not my type .I've had a lot of crushes and neither of them has asked me out and this make me feel like I'm really ugly ,when I look at my self in the mirror I see myself as beautiful but people tell me that I'm just fine .I try me best to look up to date ,in terms of braiding my hair ,acting like a lady when I see my crushes .I'm friends with my crushes and I get annoyed by the fact that they're always telling me about their girlfriends instead of approaching me ,now I feel like the reason why they don't approach me is because I'm ugly .Please help
