Be Beautiful!

While beauty is almost as subjective as love, it’s something that you can explore and discover in yourself over time. No matter what stage you’ve achieved in life, you can always redefine and recreate beauty both within and in the world around you. Being the best you can be outwardly is part of feeling beautiful. However, no one can top the value of someone who is inwardly beautiful, too.

  • Get some exercise. You don’t have to run a marathon or have a perfectly sculpted body. You’d be surprised what doing some yoga, taking a daily walk or going for a swim will do for your sense of well-being. Your skin will have a healthy glow, and you’ll exude a sense of vitality.

  • Pick a great hairstyle. Hair is your crowning glory. If you’ve got it, then style it in a way that flatters your face and choose a great color if you don’t like your own. If you don’t have much, either clip it short or get a great hat (or several hats) to communicate a message about your personal style.

  • Take care of your skin. Wear makeup if you have the time and if it makes you feel good.

    No matter what your skin tone, don’t spend too much time in the sun. If you do get a lot of sun, then make sure that you wear a sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher protection.

    Drink a lot of water. Water hydrates your skin from within and will help to combat peeling and dryness.

    Wash your face in the morning and at night. If your skin is oily, then use a cleanser to keep your face acne-free. If your skin is dry, then use a gentler cleanser and be sure to moisturize.

  • Care for your lips. Wear lip balm, particularly in the winter. If you want a little color along with protection, buy tinted lip balm.

  • Protect your teeth. Not only do they give you a great smile, but they also keep you eating all of the foods that you love at any age. In addition to regular brushing and flossing, get a check-up at the dentist every 6 months.

  • Choose a great wardrobe. Your wardrobe does not have to be expensive to be beautiful. It just has to showcase your style and flatter your body. Choose good fabrics and flattering colors that you can wash without dry cleaning. Instead of buying 2 cheap shirts that won’t last very long, save your money to purchase a well-made shirt that can last for multiple seasons. You can always find great brands and really unique pieces for less at consignment shops or thrift shops.

  • Know that you’re timeless. Your beauty regimen will change over time as your body changes, but you’re still you. You don’t have to look the way you did when you were 25 to be beautiful. You just need to take good care of yourself and put your best foot forward every day.

  • Let go of bad feelings. Your feelings are important because they tell you what you like and what you don’t. However, if you hold onto bad feelings for a long time, they will poison your soul. If you’re angry with someone, don’t let it turn into bitterness or resentment. Go out into your backyard and scream, call a friend and vent or take a kickboxing class to work it out. Then forgive, be the bigger person and make smarter choices next time.

  • Look for spiritual truth. Maybe you are a devout follower of a religion. Or perhaps you don’t believe in a specific deity, but you find great spiritual satisfaction in creating art or spending time in nature. You will starve your spiritual side if you focus too much on rules and dogma or if you only want scientific truth instead of spiritual truth. Find a way to see yourself as part of something larger so that you can be more compassionate toward your fellow humans.
