Being beautiful is a life long work and of course I am not meaning the physical attributes here.
Yes, most of us want to be more beautiful in whatever way is acceptable and desirous to us but deep down we know it is a lot more complicated than diet, exercise, needles, scalpels and potions.
Internal beauty requires dedication.
The kind of beauty that makes us wake up each day and feel well within, beauty that makes us engage positively with others, be generous and for the most part enrich the lives of those we love and those around us.
This is not a one, two three easy beauty secret to share; we can’t take it or buy it.
Cleansing is probably my most important beauty routine.
A big statement but it is how I feel.
If my face is well cleansed I feel my skin looks brighter and I feel so much better.
Generally I am religious in my routine and give my face a thorough cleansing morning and night. The last few weeks I have not been as applied and this morning when I looked in the mirror I can see the results. Not so great.
Adding shine and volume to hair is something most of us try on a daily basis.
It is much harder to pump up the volume if hair is fine and straggly.
The truth is a good hair day changes the way we feel and think about ourselves and gives us an extra dose of self-confidence. I know when my hair is looking its best I feel like a different person, especially now I have given up colour in favour of the greys.
As I age I feel more and more certain that beautiful, healthy and well styled hair is one of the best beauty secrets of all.
