Thoughts on beauty

You are a beautiful woman…”

But what does this mean, when in today’s world, women have to measure themselves according to both sexes. Be thin, but have curves as well. Wear make-up, but don’t be overdone. Be a successful professional, but also a good mother. Having so many roles, we, women sometimes forget that the most important person we should please is ourselves. And the order should be as follows: a healthy mind, a healthy body, and a healthy wardrobe ;).

One of the most important lessons I learned was in high school. I knew dozens of girls who felt that a kilo here and there was the end of the world. But no matter how much they limited themselves, simply the fact that they were dieting in the first place made them miserable. More often than not, they were more attractive before the insane regimes. Being confident, as hard as it is, does wonders to your charms. Of course, it’s a work in progress, I’m still working on it, hell, probably no one has perfected it. But it’s worth the effort.

As cliché as it is, inner beauty matters more than the newest miracle cream on the market. Really, unless you feel good in your own skin, nothing will hide how uncomfortable you are. And despite the temporary confidence boost it might give, don’t you just wish that after your remove the make and the high heels you can go out negligée and still feel good about yourself?

With so many tasks to juggle it’s hard to prioritize, but your healthy beauty should be number one. Whether it’s a weekend spa treatment, or an evening manicure in your own home, do take the time to take care of yourself. Tasks and chores will always be there, but every day you should do something to surprise yourself and make your life a little bit better.  

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair.
