Audrey Hepburn's Beauty Tips


Recently while cleaning out my desk I came across an article with Audrey Hepburn's list of beauty tips.  Ms. Hepburn, an internationally acclaimed beauty, was allegedly a carrier for the Belgian Underground Anti-Nazi Movement in WW II as a teen.  She learned the importance of a good heart as well as good character early. 

Here is her list:

1.  For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
2   For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
3.  For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
4.  For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
5.  For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.
6.  People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anybody.  Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm.  As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands--one for helping yourself, the other for helping others (by the way, Kirk Douglas in a recent article said that helping others keeps the elderly from becoming depressed).
7.  The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.  The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.  True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.  It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows.  And the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.

Thank you for your wisdom Audrey, you were physically beautiful, but your soul will remain eternally beautiful.
