Girls are like stars. There are millions of us in the night sky and together, we sparkle and light up the world. Some of us may shine brighter than others, some of us may twinkle like dying embers, but all of us can grow a completely new human being inside us, and that is a beautiful gift. As the saying goes, “There are no ugly girls. Only lazy ones.” It’s true. Beauty needs work, just like muscles need to be built. If guys can sweep us off our feet with their good looks, charisma and brains, we can sweep them off theirs with our beauty, kindness and talents too!
With the help of my fellow girlfriends, here is a list of five tried-and-tested methods we’ve compiled that will make you pretty naturally (the list is not exhaustive):
1) Glowing and Radiant Skin
To have glowing and radiant skin, drink at least eight glasses of water a day. Water hydrates our organs, including our skin, which is the biggest organ. Eat also a tablespoon of flaxseed powder a day. Flaxseeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which keep our skin soft and speed up the healing of skin wounds.
2) Beautiful Eyes
To reduce puffiness around the eyes, sleep early and have at least seven to eight hours of sleep everyday. Place cucumber slices on your eyes for about ten minutes. Cucumbers have high water content and they help to hydrate the tender areas around your eyes. Carrots, leafy greens and olive oil are also well-known food that are good for the eyes.
3) Be Clean and Well-Groomed
To look good and smell good, wear clothes that flatter your body shape and make you feel beautiful. Wash your hair on a regular schedule and shower everyday. Use a bath gel that smells great. Use a deodorant or spritz a light perfume on your dress.
4) White Teeth
Crunching on apples and carrots will help to whiten your teeth because they are fibrous and act as natural exfoliants. Greens such as broccoli also help whiten teeth because they contain iron which forms an acid-resistant barrier that protects the enamel of your teeth.
5) Kindness and Gentleness
The most beautiful people I know are kind and gentle. They care for their friends and truly want the best for them. They help without asking for anything in return, they will be there for you when you need a shoulder to cry on and they will not ditch you when the sky falls down. Their heart is so big you’d wonder if they’re angels sent from above. They are incredibly likeable. We can’t help but fall in love with them.
