Simplicity And Excellence
Ever heard the “KISS” guidelines? No, that’s not a term in reference to the band, it’s a way to go about beautifying yourself. KISS stands for “Keep It Simple, Sister!”. Well, that’s one way to make an acronym out of it. Other words like “stupid” or “sucker” are sometimes used at the end—but that may distract from the point.
The point is, the more complication you put into your beauty pursuits, the more difficult it will be to achieve the look you want, and the more easy it will be for some little imperfection to totally throw you off. You want to avoid over-complicated applications of makeup and hairstyles—but that doesn’t mean to avoid these things altogether.
When you do have an inspiration for a new hairstyle, of course you want to try it out. As you’ve likely found, whenever you’re developing something new, there is a bit of a learning curve. In order to get the results you’re seeking, you’re going to want to have the right tools available.
Fashionistas constantly creating different and stunning hairstyles understand which hair curling irons are the best, and which ones to avoid—this is integral to style. The wrong curling iron can be your worst nightmare unless that is the look you’re going for.
Holistic Beauty Tips
If you really want to simplify things, try and cut out as much hairspray and makeup as you can. One of the best beauty tips you can take involves diet and exercise. The best makeup and curling irons in the world can’t compete with the natural glow a woman exudes when she is fully flourishing.
Some things to avoid include processed foods, energy drinks, alcoholic drinks, and inactivity. Walking is great exercise, and it’s pleasant. Maybe you don’t like to run, but how can’t you say no to a stroll down the beach? You’ll have a light sheen of sweat after an hour and a mind of peace.
Getting rid of wrinkles can be done with natural creams, or it can be done by quieting your mind. Laugh lines come from laughter, frown lines from disappointment. But laugh-lines are attractive, whereas frown lines aren’t. To get the former, avoid negative stress—that is: stress which doesn’t produce a positive result.
Exercise is a positive stress, injury is negative. Sometimes negative stress can’t be avoided, but a lot of it comes from your lifestyle choices. Drink too much, get involved in too many trysts, neglect friends or family—these things can produce physical effects diminishing your beauty.
Freeing Yourself From Technology
Another tangential beauty tip may involve getting away from technology for a while. It turns out that too much internet, video games, or otherwise tech-related isolation can have serious effects to your physical and mental health. When you’re sedentary too long, that’s bad for the body. When you fight on the internet all the time, it can be toxic for the mind.
Unplug the phone and let it die for a day or two over the weekend. As long as you’re not needed for work or something else important, you’ll be okay. It will be good for you. Exercise is good, but finding time to be still is also good.
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but this isn’t strictly true. There is inhering beauty which communicates itself on a subconscious level. But this beauty cannot be synthetically attained. There is no artificial sweetener for the sugar of true beauty. The best attempts come off looking clownish. True beauty takes any size, any shape, any age, and any ethnicity.
The woman who is mentally stable, physically healthy, and spiritually pure may not have the looks of Hollywood, but she will be more beautiful than any model in any magazine anywhere—and people may not always be able to put their finger on just exactly why, lending a final cherry on top of your style: the allure of mystery.
