Iza Calzado: The Body Love Revolution

Self-love is usually defined as one’s regard for his or her own well-being without considering it to be a narcissistic characteristic. recently interviewed 11 women on what self-love means to them, and some of the answers included being content with where they are while pursuing where they want to go, accepting that putting their needs first is a priority, learning to say no to things or people that don’t make them feel good or happy, and finding the deeper meaning behind their fears.

In our previous cover story featuring #CalyxtaGirl, Iza Calzado, she shares that being a woman in this day and age, despite the many things she juggles, knows when to say no—even to herself. And picking up from that subject, this next cover video focuses on how Iza joined She Talks Asia, an organization dedicated to educating, empowering, and inspiring people who are learning to understand and appreciate the role of women in an evolving world, and started The Body Love Revolution—a movement that aims to talk about body transformation, intergenerational concerns, emotions, media and beauty, and the right approach to food and fitness.

Iza even answers the question, “What can you say about people who think makeup, skin care, and treatments are against self-love because it’s changing or enhancing something about your body?” Watch her video below:
