Beauty is not skin deep

Live well to attain beauty and wellness

It is said that the true beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the style of her hair or the brand of makeup she uses. It's in the way she sees herself and projects that inner glow.

Here are some tips to attaining the beauty and wellness you won't find in a bottle:

You are already doing it

You're probably exercising more than you realize. All you have to do is kick up your daily activities a notch or two. For example, park you car slightly further from the mall entrance and take a brisk walk to get there or opt to use the stairs instead of the elevator whenever possible.

Feet first

Pamper tired feet with a simple ginger scrub. Mix a few handfuls of sea salts, several drops of olive oil and a few shavings of fresh ginger. Rinse your feet after the scrub, then massage with a moisturizing body lotion.

Develop your mind

Take time to do something outside of your daily routine. For example, visit a bookshop and pick up a travel book. Learn about another country's people, culture and geography.

Grab some sleep

The right amount of sleep helps your body re-energize and de-stress for the next day. Avoid spending time staring at a computer screen just before bed. The exposure from the light will affect your sleep quality. If you have problems falling asleep, try drinking a warm glass of milk before bed.
