Motivation is a huge factor in keeping fit and feeling good. We understand the struggle to feel motivated but once it hits you, the world is your oyster! So we will be inundating you with inspirational women to get you off the mark.

With the current ‘This Girl Can’ campaign sweeping the nation, women are more active than ever and we LOVE it! Mio believes that to look good, you must feel good and we are here to give you all the necessary tools to do so. Nothing is more attractive than being confident in your own skin. That’s why we’ve created four individual groups to target specific problems within our range, so now you can concentrate on one step at a time!

Girl power is all we need to get through a work out, take control of your body and own it! Billie Jean King did just that in the 1970s! You may not know her, but she is with a shadow of a doubt a sporting LEGEND! The US tennis superstar and winner of 20, yes TWENTY, Wimbledon titles, famously beat Bobby Riggs in 1973 for a $100,000 prize in ‘The Battle of the Sexes’ after he proclaimed that men were superior athletes. She sure showed him who was boss!

To be confident in your own skin, YOU need to OWN it – just like Marie Stopes (1880-1958). The British scientist is best known for her achievements in the fields of birth control and sex education in the 20th century. In a time when women were deemed as inferior to men in every single way, Marie stuck to her morals and fought for women’s rights. On a regular basis, Marie would publically address romantic and sexual happiness in a marriage which broke many barriers in society. She carved an aspiring path for women around the world through sheer determination. Marie is just one great example to show how great and strong we can be when we just put our minds to it!

Often or not, past inspirational women aren’t celebrated. As previously mentioned, to rekindle their spirit we are introducing our Women Crush Wednesday feature (WCW) across our social media platforms to motivate YOU! Our main priority is to get women moving, whatever and wherever that may be. Whether you’re a fully-fledged yogi or an evening walker, Mio promises to invest in your confidence as we believe you are ALL inspiring women! So get out there and get moving.

Let us know what motivates you! In the meantime, keep an eye out for our #WCW posts by following us on Twitter @MioSkincare and Instagram or alternatively give us a like on Facebook.
