Tips for beauty:
Millions of people share the same problem: Eating disorders. Body image issues have reached epidemic proportions, plastic surgery rates have skyrocketed, and it seems like just about everyone is feeling the “makeover” pressure. We have met so many amazing, intelligent, compassionate people whose lives have been touched by these issues. But the solution isn’t magically whooped through a magic wand.
The first step of this solution, which is generated by YOU and only you, is reaching out… find your voice, and find help for yourself or someone you care about. You can’t do it on your own, but the good news is that you don’t have to. Through the positive interaction with your surrounding atmosphere, and through a few simple tips:
First of all, maximize what God has given you. Get a stylish haircut and eyeglass frames. Use make-up to enhance your skin and facial features, and dress in ways that flatter your shape and frame. Exercise and keep your weight within a healthy range. Do all of this for you, not some potential boyfriend/girlfriend. You will feel more confident and more attractive.
Secondly, don’t compare yourself to others. This is very hard to do when bombarded by nonstop images of glamour. We forget that models and movie stars are often computer altered, air-brushed and products of plastic surgeries. Accept yourself; imperfection exists in everything on earth.
Afterwards, concentrate on character building. As trite as it sounds, inner beauty is more important in the long run than outer beauty is. Physical beauty fades but godly character makes one even more beautiful. It is not uncommon to hear couples talk about attractions that grew over time because of the inner beauty they saw in each other.
'A person who is pretty does have an initial advantage meeting people, but a pretty face isn’t what guarantees relationships’-wise success ...
In the end, practice being assertive and never ever let anyone throw any hurtful comments around about you or your appearance. Speak up in a gentle but assertive manner. For example, next time someone judges you based on your outside appearance, simply reply with “Don’t judge me because you don’t even know me”.
A person who is pretty does have an initial advantage meeting people, but a pretty face isn’t what guarantees relationships’-wise success, high self-esteem or an interesting personality does that. Those things must be cultivated over time. Focus on the things you can control and work on them.
Editor’s Note: Earlier in the article, when MJ pointed at the Cosmopolitan covers with Heidi Klum on, you could see here, two cosmo foreign covers both obviously polished (right>). Still, there’s a much specified article toward the tech-beauty going on later on in the magazine. However, since it’s the Ugly Betty issue, regarding this article in specific, in season one, there’s an actress who plays by the name “Natalie Witman” who appears on the cover of Mode, and they play up her shape by the same trick MJ mentioned earlier with Heidi Klum. However, they solved the dilemma of the episode with the truth.
