How many people worry about aging? How many people say “Oh, another birthday, let’s not mention it, at my age I would rather lose count ….” ? Is this what Hollywood has done to mankind? Perhaps magazines? Don’t waste another year, celebrate, you’re BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Don’t you know beauty doesn’t age? Did you know beauty comes from within? When we’re happy, we glow and attract people who are positive and see our inner beauty, which magnifies our outer beauty as well, causing it to stand out while brightening the world we live in! Smile all the time, even when a birthday is approaching, have fun and cherish every moment, your skin will appreciate it too!

Little Secrets about Beauty

POSITIVITY

Positive and optimistic attitude is important and associated with youth, why you ask? According to statistics, it shows younger people have not experienced real life challenges, therefore they may appear happier and more upbeat, making them look younger than what they are … I disagree, there have been many instances where an individual faced a life threatening obstacle, illness, or some type of traumatic experience, but that very same individual chose to feel the pain and release it, leaving room for personal and spiritual growth, equating to a positive outlook in life, and eventually moving on. So, why not begin today, and try to do out best in loving ourselves, our age, our soul, and by doing so, let’s smile, the more you smile, the younger you look!

SLEEP

Dark circles, bags, or both? Don’t rush to a plastic surgeon yet, begin by changing your sleeping patterns. You may see a dramatic change from how you feel, to your complexion. Did you know lack of sleep dehydrates the skin? Causing breakouts, uneven color pigmentation, or/and dark patches in the eye area? Begin today! Promise yourself this now, you’ll do the very best in setting an earlier bedtime, by leaving your laptop on the desk, turn your phone off and don’t watch t.v, meditate, and drift your thoughts and mind toward a deep, sound sleep. Like everything, this too is a learned behavior, you may call it a learning process. Begin today, your goals towards wellness and a more beautiful you!

EXERCISE

Did you know another secret to vibrant looking skin is exercise? Yes, you heard right, exercise helps you feel better about yourself, but it also helps your skin release any toxins via sweat glands. Don’t forget epidermal elasticity, by exercising regularly your body releases natural hormones making your face, neck, and all over appearance look and feel firmer. Give it a try! Exercise your way to beauty!

DRESS TO IMPRESS

Look in your closet, what do you see? Do you like your wardrobe? Or is it time for an update? How do you look and feel? Keep up with changing times and trends! It feels good to look good! Meaning, wearing clothes that fit you, not too loose nor too tight! You deserve to feel and look your best in a casual setting, work environment, or special event, dress to impress yourself! When a person feels good, he or she may smile more, igniting and projecting their inner beauty to the outside world. Life is beautiful, not only due to nature, or things in it, but also because of people who actively make themselves part of it. Live a beautiful life, don’t settle for just “being” there, …. you are meant to SHINE!!!!

These are a few of the many secrets to eternal beauty. Beauty comes from within, make your uniqueness stand out! Your are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Stress is one of the biggest factors related to health, body, and mind challenges, which brings an array of unwanted, negative reactions to our lives. Why continue giving stress so much power? How can we encourage one another to free ourselves from adverse thoughts leading to unwanted circumstances?

The effect of stress leaves undesirable signs on our beautiful complexion, making them more real than ever; common indicators are breakouts, premature aging, dull appearance, lack of suppleness, and so much more.  It’s time we take necessary steps towards a healthier, happier life, I believe we can do it together, are you ready? Let’s get going by starting today!

1. Love and Gratitude

Be grateful for who you are, there’s only one of you; you are loved, cherished, and cared for, even through challenging times. Once you’re able to feel love for yourself, the Universe will open up imaginable doors and lay an exciting and amazing path for you.

If you want something, a loving relationships, financial abundance, health,  or anything else, you must become love, you can achieve this by first loving yourself, fall in love with who you are, honor yourself, accept the way you are, celebrate you.

Once you love who you are, loving and accepting others will become a natural part of life, happiness and joy will join forces and become who you are; peace of mind will overpower any negative thought, and stress will begin to reside elsewhere, and no longer within you.

2. Exercise

Always receive clearance before participating in any  form of physical activity.  Amongst the many, my favorite is Bikram Yoga, what’s yours? Please feel free to share by commenting and leaving your valuable feedback below.

Bikram Yoga makes me feel incredible, when stress creeps up, I check the schedule and attend a 90 minute class …..  Aaaaahhh, this amazing practice heals from within, calms emotions, invigorates the heart, promotes blood circulation, improves flexibility, not to mention my skin clears up! If you never tried this form of exercise I encourage you to give it a try, you may be surprised in how great you feel psychologically and physically.

3. Kiss

Kissing is the art of pure love! Kiss away! Kiss your loved ones! Hug away, increase the energy flow around you!

According to Best Kisses kissing has amazing health benefits “Kissing is a known stress-reliever. Passionate kissing relieves tension, reduces negative energy and produces a sense of well-being, lowering your cortisol ‘stress’ hormone.”

Cortisol being the stress hormone causes premature aging, wrinkles and hormonal breakouts, so why not fight back with pure love energy? There you have it, take it a step further, make it your daily health tip, kiss away!

4. Appreciate Nature

Feeling down? Go outside, take a deep breath, enjoy our beautiful Earth! Go hiking, or perhaps a brisk walk? Maybe you prefer a swim? With so many activities, pick one and love it! With each motion inhale love and exhale gratitude!

Life is beautiful, full of opportunities and amazing people, appreciate nature and always Think Green! By helping our environment, we reduce pollution, toxic waste, the ability to keep our Earth clean is in our hands, by making conscious efforts in recycling we are protecting our health from free radicals which are damaging to our skin and hair as well. Let’s work together in removing our Carbon Footprint from Mother Earth.
