Revlon’s #LOVETEST

Revlon and Fordham University conducted an experiment to see if a daily beauty and self-love routine would affect women and their relationships. The women in the study were asked to perform a daily ritual, journaling, and self-affirmation.

The women were then given a ritual to do every day for a week. It was as follows:

Find a private place where you can spend a couple of minutes going through the ritual:

  • Look at yourself in the mirror.
  • Apply fragrance or scented lotion.
  • Apply eye makeup.
  • Enjoy a mint or piece of chocolate.
  • Apply lipstick or gloss.
  • Take a slow, deep breath.
  • Look at yourself in the mirror.
  • Smile.

Repeat daily.

The Results…at the end of the study the woman said that they felt more confident and open to love.  In fact, 97% of women felt a positive change in themselves, and 85% felt like they noticed a positive reaction from others.

The study also found that “71% reported an increased desire for romance, 69% were more open to finding love, 77% felt more outgoing and social, and 74% said they were more likely to flirt.”

This study is spot on. I have been writing and teaching about this subject for some time now. Loving yourself in combination with a positive attitude has amazing affects on your self confidence, self esteem and spills over into your relationships. Taking time each day for yourself to either give yourself some much needed love, journaling, or just sitting quietly outdoors, will not only help you destress but it will also increase your positive outlook and improve your health.

So I challenge you to do Revlon’s #LOVETEST. Share your results here…
