There is a misconception that beauty is only in the physical, nothing can be far from the truth. It is a fact that physical beauty is appealing, but much more important than what one sees is the beauty that comes from the inside.

While we take care of the outside, it is very important this year to nurture the beauty inside. This combination is what true beauty is all about.

If you are willing to follow some simple steps, you will look wonderful every single day as well. To tell you the truth, being beautiful and even elegant is easier than it might seem.

*All you have to do is take care of yourself. For instance if you want to look beautiful you must care for your hair . You must clean it every week, irrespective of the hair style. Don’t let your hair look greasy or untidy. It surely makes a bad impression.

*Your nails are also very important. You would get surprised how much attention people pay to your hands. To think of it yourself, would you find a person with dirty or broken nails attractive? Probably not, so you’re not an exception and if you want to be attractive, be very attentive to every little detail.

*Be very careful with your clothing. You don’t have to be super fashionable or stylish. Just make sure your clothes are clean and fresh and no matter what your style is, you will look nice. Don’t forget to make sure your clothes are not too tight and too shaggy for you, because it gives the impression of an untidy person.

*When it comes to makeup, remember one rule: natural is beautiful. Yet, most women apply too much makeup everyday. Remember that there is a great difference between day and evening makeup. Ladies who have beautiful skin should use only mascara and lipstick. Powder is acceptable only for those who have some skin problems.

*Take care of your skin. Not only is it the largest organ of your body, it is the part of you that the world sees first, before they look into your eyes. Cleanse , tone and moisturize everyday. It doesn’t matter how late , or how tired you are, remove your makeup every night. Invest in a good moisturizer. If you are in your forties, go a step further, by buying products specifically designed for mature skin.

*Mind your manners. Doing nothing that is unacceptable in public doesn’t mean your manners are good. Don’t forget to say sorry and thank people, control your tone while talking to others and even clean your language. Talking properly and in nice tone will help you in your relationship with colleagues, friends and even family members.

*Scent is an important part of your image as well. People that are around you will surely notice your new perfume. You will feel better yourself, knowing that people smell your perfume, and not your sweat.

Combining all these things will undoubtedly make you look beautiful. Beauty is not all about facial features or body shape.

Every single woman can feel and really look wonderful, all you have to do is pay attention to your self and find some time to take care of your looks. And don’t forget, that only when you find yourself attractive and charming, will others find you attractive and charming as well.
