8 Tips for Looking and Feeling More Beautiful – The Beauty Prescription

If you want to look and feel more beautiful, you don’t need cosmetic surgery or a 25 pound weight loss! These beauty tips focus on you as a whole woman, and they affect all parts of your mind, body, and soul. It’s a “one size fits all” beauty prescription!

Debra Luftman, MD, and Eva Ritvo, MD, — co-authors of The Beauty Prescription: The Complete Formula for Looking and Feeling Beautiful — attended Barack Obama’s inauguration and were inspired to create these beauty secrets.

“We were fortunate enough to be in Washington, DC with hundreds of thousands of our closest friends for the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th president of the United States,” say Luftman and Ritvo. “It was an incredibly exciting time, and when we think about Obama’s message of ‘Change,’ it’s impossible for us not to put that in the context of our favorite subject: beauty. So at a time when change is on everyone’s mind, how will you change the way beauty impacts your life in the coming year?”

Read their book, The Beauty Prescription: The Complete Formula for Looking and Feeling Beautiful, for more information on natural beauty. And, here are their beauty tips for women of all shapes and sizes…

8 Tips for Looking and Feeling More Beautiful

1. Fix your broken relationships. Reach out to people in your life with whom your relationships haven’t been as close as they could be. If you have unfinished business or unhappy loose ends with family or friends, be the first to reach out and build bridges. Finding the beauty in other people — no matter how broken they are — can be a effective way to restore your peace of mind and increase your natural beauty.

2. Find and share inexpensive beauty and skin care products. At a time when the economy seems to be in for a prolonged slump, get creative and find ways to get quality beauty and skin care products for less.  Share your secrets with friends, and invite them to share theirs with you.

3. Explore organic cosmetics and natural makeup. There are many sources of natural beauty products — be sure to look for the Ecocert designation, which guarantees that your beauty product is 100% natural. Read Organic Beauty Products – Tips for Buying Natural Makeup.

4. Create healthy habits that increase your beauty from the inside out. Adopt at least one healthy new habit, such as working out five days a week, eating fish at least twice a week, or taking up meditation as a daily practice.  Do something great for your body, and watch it become more beautiful!

5. Use local beauty salons and businesses. Get into the community and bring your beauty business to locally owned businesses like hair salons and makers of handmade cosmetics. This unusual beauty tip will help you meet new people who will be grateful for your patronage. You’ll also make new friends and feel like a part of the fabric of where you live.

6. Adjust your work environment. Make your work environment more conducive to beauty by getting an anti-glare filter for your computer to take the strain off your eyes, taking 15 minutes a day to walk around the building or do deep breathing, or simply filling your workspace with beautiful things. Stressing less is an effective beauty tip for your body and mind!

7. Clean up your home environment. Beautify the physical space where you live.  This unusual beauty tip doesn’t to be expensive; it could be a matter of lighting, plants, music, fabrics and getting rid of clutter.  But a beautiful physical environment makes you feel more content, peaceful and in love with your own life.

    My favorite health and beauty tip is a full body massage….and my massage therapist briefly massages my face, too. I always thought it would give me more wrinkles!

    That reminds me; I need to book a massage soon. 🙂

    Thanks for taking the time to comment, Francie.

    My favorite unusual beauty tip is: get a regular facial massage! Pollution from cities, too much sun exposure, and stress can make your wrinkles look way worse. A facial massage tightens your skin and helps remove environmental toxins. It increases blood circulation — and it feels GREAT. I give myself a facial massage every night.
