Time Tested Beauty Tips
The pomp and circumstance that surrounds the Academy Award's Oscar ceremony will once again take place this weekend. It is fun to see who is wearing what dress and to hear the heartfelt speeches. As we watch the glitter unfold, remember these words falsely attributed to Oscar winner, Audrey Hepburn...Proving once again that things are not always what they seem.
TIME TESTED BEAUTY TIPS
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.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows; and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows! ~ Sam Levenson

@Ching Ya: So true. It is what comes from the inside because the outside fades. I think my favorite is the one about seeking out the good in people. Many people "shrink" and hide who they are, but when we give them a chance they blossom.

I just love this, Luci! These are valuable beauty tips that we can't find in the market but work like a charm. I think us ladies need to bear these in mind, stop complementing on the outwards only but try to be more expressive in a person's character. We can praise our friends for being stunning, but at the same time, shines much more from within. :) Can we all make a difference? I do think so.
