eyebrowsToday’s guestpost is perhaps what every woman wants to know, the secrets to beauty! For me it is definitely about the last 3, beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, I see so many beautiful women each and every day. Have the confidence to know that you too are beautiful in your own enitrely unique way and if you need some extra tips on how to look glowing, take note!

There are some women who just seem to have a certain indefinable something. Many famous women have it and in our daily lives we come across it as well; if you see these women’s mothers, they often seem to have it too. While there’s often an element of good genetics involved, there’s also a set of rules or tips that they adhere to which help them obtain that little spark that elevates them to the status of ‘beauty’!

Women who seem to be effortlessly beautiful are actually ‘living’ their beauty regime. They don’t follow fad diets, but eat well most of the time, keeping the indulgent foods for a treat at the weekend or for special occasions. In addition to this, they find a way to incorporate exercise into their lives; they may walk when they do a small amount of shopping, for example, rather than taking the car and they are more likely to use the stairs than the lift. An open secret of being beautiful is to get plenty of sleep; there’s a reason why they call it ‘beauty sleep’, so if you want to give yourself an advantage, try to get to bed early. One other aspect of the beautiful woman’s lifestyle is her attitude to personal grooming. She won’t leave her eyebrows unplucked or her legs unshaven and little touches like that make a difference!

The perfect canvas

Being beautiful isn’t about how you apply make-up but how you take care of your skin and there are three beauty tips that will make you glow. First of all, the cleansing routine needs to be stringent; never go to bed without removing every scrap of make-up and use a gentle cleanser twice a day, with a regular exfoliation programme, once or twice a week, to get rid of dead skin. Secondly, apply moisturiser each morning and night and don’t neglect your hands, feet and those areas likely to become rough, such as knees and elbows. Finally, give yourself a boost with a good fake tan, leaving your skin with a sun-kissed radiance without exposing it to the dangers of sun beds or excessive exposure to the sun itself.

A great attitude

The last three beauty secrets are related to how you face the world. Regardless of bone structure, colouring, weight or the arrangement of facial features, there are three things that set a woman apart: taking the time to relax, letting herself have some fun and being confident.

Relaxation will help you to avoid developing a stressed look that hides your beauty; it won’t keep wrinkles at bay forever, but laughter lines are so much more attractive than frown lines. Taking the time to have fun has various benefits, whether it’s because you’re being active and getting some extra exercise, getting a chance to unwind or just enjoying good company.

When you enjoy yourself, your body releases endorphins which are natural painkillers and reduce stress levels, which is better for your general health. The last aspect – confidence – is something that comes when you know you’re living a healthy lifestyle and being good to yourself and others. It’s the essential ingredient that can’t be faked and will make you shine

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but just about everybody agrees that a woman who is happy has an inner glow that makes her look beautiful. So, whatever else you do, just accept yourself and you’ll be one of those women with that certain indefinable something.
