How to highlight your natural beauty 

They say many things about beauty. It’s in the eye of the beholder. It’s only skin deep. When it comes to mantras on the meaning of beauty, we side with Confucius. Like him, we think that everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. It’s true. You, lady, are absolutely beautiful. And, because sometimes things just need to be buffed so they can shine out, we’ve outlined 5 ‘buffing tools’ that will help highlight and bring out your natural beauty.

Stop thinking you need to change anything about your looks

There’s another old saying about beauty, a unknown proverb of unknown origin that says: Don’t gild the lily. It means that when something is perfect, leave it so. You are gorgeous just as the heavens made you. Don’t look to change that, but rather work to enhance it. If you’re really battling with self-esteem, try these excellent tips provided by Your Tango.

Smile!

When you smile, your face lights up, an according to Psychology Today, feel-good neurotransmitters — dopamine, endorphins and serotonin — are released when you smile. These have relaxing and calming effects on the mind and body, and can lower heart and blood pressure. People who smile mroe often are happier people. So grin lady, you’re gorgeous and you’re alive. Both excellent reasons to smile today!

When it comes to make up, less is more

Use make up to compliment your face, not to mask it. Ask any man or woman and they’ll tell you: Those who wear too much make up look like they’re hiding something; and that’s what you notice. Additionally, too much make up can age you prematurely, and gives you a duller appearnace once it’s been removed. There is no make up in the world that can replace what God gave you. Let it shine!

Be healthy

What you put into your body very seriously affects your outer appearance. Those who eat well, excercise regularly, drink lots of water and get enough sleep have a much more evident natural beauty than those who don’t. These healthy ladies shine from the inside out, and seldom need makeup to achieve the same effect. Be good to your body, and she’ll be good to you.

Take care of yourself

Your face, your skin, your hair — these are the elements that make up your outward appearance. You need to take care of them. But the thing that shines brightest through everything, that makes all these outward appearance elements truly shine, is when you take care of your inner self. This means taking time for you, working towards satisfaction rather than monetary gain, playing with children — in short, doing all the things that keep people smiling, and feeling younger.

It might sound cliche, but if you feel beautiful, you will look beautiful. It’s a fact of nature.
