NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Time Inc.’s PEOPLE, the world’s most popular celebrity weekly, and PEOPLE en Español, the top-selling Hispanic monthly in the U.S., join together for the first-ever “Most Beautiful” contest collaboration between the two brands. PEOPLE and PEOPLE en Español invite women ages 18 or older to celebrate their natural beauty by posting a photo that best represents their naturally beautiful self – whether it’s a makeup-free selfie, a shot flaunting their natural hair, or a picture that they feel lets their natural beauty shine through – on social media using the hashtag #PEOPLENaturalBeauty or #BellezaNaturalPEOPLE. Presented by the AVEENO® Brand, known for using ingredients sourced from nature to deliver real benefits for healthier, more beautiful skin and hair, the Natural Beauty/Belleza Natural contest is accepting entries via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram from February 13 - March 6 for PEOPLE, and from February 23 – March 15 for PEOPLE en Español.

The winner will receive a selection of AVEENO® products, a professional photo shoot in New York, and will be featured in PEOPLE’s annual “50 Most Beautiful” special double issue (hits newsstands on April 24), on PEOPLE.com and on social platforms. PEOPLE en Español’s editors will choose one grand prize winner, who will be featured in the “Los 50 Mas Bellos” June issue (hits newsstands on May 3), on PEOPLEenespanol.com and on social platforms.
