Recently, I entered a contest on Facebook about my "beauty regimen". The next day, I was contacted from the contest sponsor that I won a full skincare set from a natural & sensitive skin care company. Me? I never win anything. But I did this time. Do you know how? I told them that I avoid allergens, eat healthy, exercise and use sensitive skin care products. That's all. Evidently that was what the company was looking for.
Beauty shows from the inside out. So does ugliness. When we fill ourselves with junk--bad food, bad attitudes,and false beliefs, it shows. We we take care of ourselves-- eat right, exercise, get enough sleep, focus on the positive and give God control, it shows. No skin cream can make negativity disappear from our faces. We are extremely transparent from the inside out.
One day at a gym where I worked, as I walked the floor talking with members, an older man struck up a conversation with me. He insisted he was in the best health ever by claiming to eat healthy, exercise and on and on. I was not convinced. As he continued talking, I noticed that his eyes weren't clear; they didn't have the luster of healthy eyes. The lids were red on the edges. His skin reminded me of old men in bars who ate too many fried onion rings andgreasy burgers. He claimed to eat well-marbled (i.e. fatty) meat, drank a beer or two and worked out twice a week. He was not about to win any beauty pageant for older men! I don't think following his beauty plan would be helpful for anyone. Our appearance is a reflection our overall health.
Here are some ways that you can look and feel your best.
When we eat healthy and exercise, we appear younger than we are and more vibrantly than our counterparts. Beauty is a reflection of our overall health.
Beautiful people find beauty around them all the time!
This doesn't mean bad things don't happen or there won't be stress. You can deal with it better by giving everything over to the One who has all things in His Hands. Trust God will take care of everything that stresses you like loss of a job, nasty coworkers, and the like. Those who only trust in themselves have no way of handling things that get under their skin. They don't have God taking care of them because they don't let Him. Aging shows more on those who don't know God.
Beauty comes from deep within one's self emanating throughout the entire person. No skin cream, massage therapy or rapid fix can do that for you. Go!Be beautiful!
May God bless you!
