Exclusive Free Beauty Secrets revealed to help you look naturally 10 years younger
For eons, it seems, women the world over have made use of a staggering array of highly imaginative aids to preserve or improve on what nature bestowed upon them. Nor are these beauty secrets always the privilege of the rich, but transcend class and even, in these equal-opportunity modern times, transcend gender.
And while it's true that Westerners of both sexes sometimes go to extremes to maintain their physical appeal - in the form of cosmetic enhancements, fat removal, and any manner of unpleasant and expensive, not to mention risky, procedures, it's sadly true that some of the most basic beauty secrets and cosmetics in fact cost very little and can help those who follow them to the letter to maintain both their health and their attractiveness.
A true fundamental of any beauty regime is adequate hydration. Yes, drinking enough of that bland, inexpensive substance water (6-10 glasses per day) is de rigeur for plumped-up, glowing skin and efficient elimination of all those nasty toxins our bodies are awash with in these polluted modern times. As an inner cleanser and flusher-out of dross it's unbeatable, and an essential staple among beauty secrets and reduces the need for expensive cosmetics.
Obviously diet plays a big role in skin condition too - if you're deficient in the nutrients necessary for good skin health, your complexion will suffer and you may well look older (and more tired) than your years. Regular consumption of fruit and vegetables and their juices - especially the organic kind - will help boost energy and prevent deficiency, unlike refined foods which I find often have a lethargic effect which does nothing for your energy levels and joie de vivre - one important source of your inner as opposed to outer beauty.
Exercise is, of course, another well-known beauty secret for the way it oxygenates the blood, and, like H2O, is a totally gratis resource! Even fairly gentle exercise like jogging or swimming can help with skin tone and improved circulation and digestion and reduce the need for cosmetics, leading to more efficient metabolism and elimination of impurities, which enhances the health generally and the skin specifically. Exercise also leads to the release of endorphins - those "feel good" chemicals which give a natural high and more optimistic outlook. Staying positive in turn makes for a healthier immune system and possibly longer life.
As so many people's lives revolve around close relationships, clearly one of the biggest cosmetic beauty secrets of all is the making and maintaining of close and deep ties throughout one's life, for the support and nurturing that these can give in times of need. Also, and not least, for the simple, undemanding companionship and sense of community spirit relationships in general provide which can help keep at bay the isolation and even alienation that so increasingly affects modern man, with a correspondingly negative impact on his health and well-being.
But at the end of the day, there is often always the need for some extra Beauty boost and the use of comsetics and comsetic products will always be there for us girls. Using cosmetics doesn't have to be too labourious though as following the above steps can greatly reduce the need for some of the cosmetics and leave for a more natural beauty than any cosmetic product can produce.
