They say that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder – and of course this is true, for otherwise we would all find exactly the same features of a person attractive. A friend has just sent me the following quote from Audrey Hepburn -
‘For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.’
I am a firm believer in the potential for the complete and natural beauty of every human being - a combination of that with which we have been physically blessed, treated with care and love and coupled with a beautiful soul that is shown in the way we live our life in this world with others.
Last week, like so many other women (and men) I was saddened by the debate ignited by the article written by Samantha Brick. Sticking to my theory that everyone is beautiful to someone, I am sure she will be seen by some as having attractive looks. Personally I do not find her looks attractive. Couple that with her lack of internal beauty and she leaves me cold – although for a while her arrogance left me very hot under the collar.
There is nothing more unattractive to most of us than someone blatantly stating that they are beautiful – ‘to whom?’, I would ask. Certainly not to all of us! Beauty does lie in the eyes and experience of the beholder; thank goodness.
Whilst increasing numbers of increasingly young women strive to achieve the golden chalice of eternal youth and beautiful looks may I inject a note of sense into the nonsense that is the beauty industry. No one has yet found the product to keep us looking young and wrinkle free! So if you really want to be a ‘beautiful’ person all your life may I suggest the following:
Love your skin by using Love Your Skin products which have been designed with honesty (no false promises and lies) to provide quality skincare at affordable prices so that we can maintain and maximise the appearance of our skin and then remember to enhance this physical beauty by nurturing your inner beauty.
A beautiful thought and action shows in every aspect of your being – as does a nasty one. Take another good look at the ‘beautiful Samantha Brick’ and tell me what you really see.
