7 Tips For Timeless Beauty And Elegance

May 17, 2013

There are some things in life that never get old.

These are seven beauty tips that I’ve encountered time and time again. They’re classic. And when practiced, they can only lend more beauty and add depth to our lives.

Here they are, in my own words. And in no particular order of importance.

1. Be In Love

With life! With what you do. The moment. Your breath. The sun. And all the free and simple pleasures of life. This kind of love is infectious and when you exude with this kind of love, you become a radiant and irresistible source of energy for others.

2. Be Genuine 

Only say or do things if you really mean it. Smile from the heart. Ask questions if you are sincerely interested in finding out the answers. Act in a way that comes naturally to you. And be open about your vulnerabilities.

3. Above All, Kindness.

It doesn’t have to be as cheesy as it sounds. Sometimes, a small act of kindness can mean so much to others. Even just the simple act of listening shows that you care. Be kind to others. And above all, be kind to yourself.

4. Cultivate Good Health 

Beauty comes from energy and vitality. Nourish your body with fresh, clean and simple foods. Keep your bones and muscles strong by constantly moving and enjoying the outdoors. Sleep well to feel rested and rejuvenated when greeting a new day.

5. Laugh. A Lot.

In the grand scheme of the universe, nothing is all that serious. Don’t be afraid to get silly! They say people who laugh the most laugh the last. There is a real connection between laughter and longevity.

6. Cherish the Imperfect

A crooked smile. Freckles. A scar that tells a story. Imperfect things make life more interesting.

7. Simplicity 

Simplicity is the foundation of elegance. It is the understated. The harmonious. It can apply to the way we dress, what we eat, our everyday activities and what we choose to dedicate our thoughts and energy to. Simplicity is beautiful because it allows us to focus on what truly matters.

Have a happy weekend, my loves!
