How Beauty On the Inside Counts Most

Being Natural As Possible

Billions of dollars are spent each year on make believe products. The skin is made very delicate. The texture of skin varies from person to person. In order to be truly appreciated, loved and respected, it is the quality on the inside of a person that is worthwhile to the matching quality in the person of the opposite sex. Does that make sense?

I Started With A Diet Change

Since women are the ones that wear most of the make up then I’ll address their situation.

One way to solve facial and other skin problems is to eat and drink as healthy as possible. I used to have blemishes, blackheads and other skin problems until I started cutting down on eating meat and other cooked foods with chemicals. For many years I tried using skin cleansing and treatment products but none worked no matter what how much I spent or how much it was concentrated until after I changed my diet. After all that time (years) and money spent, all I needed to do was change my diet. Then I became very satisfied and I allowed my self to start changing from within.

Make Up Is Not Part Of You

I can understand if some people need make up to cover facial flaws of sorts but putting on make up just to look different or look good in a different way takes away from who the person really is. And guess what? That makes it more difficult for the made up person in the long or short run because sooner or later the truth will be seen. It is a hassle to cover up and then uncover. Why wear fake eyelashes? Natural short eyelashes are just as attractive unless they are natural. If in a spontaneous relationship where a guys calls the lady suddenly and says, hey honey let’s go for a walk on the lake or beach but she says, I need two hours to get ready. Well, why should he need to wait that long?

Allow The Beauty On The Inside To Flourish

If you have a wonderful disposition on the inside then it will also encompass the outside. In other words, the beauty on the inside will manifest to the outside without any make up. Beauty on the inside is spirituality, faith, confidence, smarts, intelligence, humor, kindness and down-to-earthiness. Why all the fake hair? Most men are getting less interested in attached or weaved hair, fake nails and long eyelashes. It won’t make you get quality men any more than if you presented yourself as naturally made up. Displayed. It is on the inside that counts.

Beauty Is Only Skin Deep

In The Final Anaylisis

Finally, men that go after the women that shows only outward attractiveness have no other choice but to desire them only for having sex, using, conquering purposes, or to show a beauty on his arm for prestigious purposes. A man will play a woman as long as it takes just to get into her specialty. If that is what a woman wants the man to want her for then she is short changing herself and settling for a temporary catch or short term relationship. Hypothetically, how can you be real with someone when you’re not showing real person? I believe in looking closely to see how real she really is.

Jewelry Is Only Material Value

As yourself why you are more impressed with the material value of jewelry as opposed to the value of warmth and richness of having a loving heart? Should we impress others with wearing fine jewelry? Or, would we impress them most with a humble heart of love? Look at what the world needs now from each one of us. What does wearing a diamond ring or a medallion do best for another man or woman as opposed to a humble heart that can change a bruised, deranged, sick or depressed person into an acceptable loving and blessed human being?

    We live in a world where inside beauty is not synonymous to outwards. I do believe the concept that beauty inwards can resonate outwards to physical beauty naturally.

    Hi word55, you have delivered a great and important message here. As teaches said, today's youth have to hear this. I really think that most men toady aren't concerned about fake eyelashes, fake tans, hair extensions and heavy make-up. "Natural healthy appearance" is the new black I think. I really think most women that put themselves through hours altering their appearance do so to compete with other women...most men really don't need this to be attracted. Personality and genuineness is more important. Im not saying we shouldn't all care about our appearance but we can do that without going to excess. The message just needs to be spread. Voted up.

    This is a message so needed for today's youth. It seems the media pushes perfection, it is not what counts.

    You make some great points word55 and lucky me, I never had blemish problems because my mom didn't allow junk food in our home and yes we had a sweet or popcorn occasionally but nothing to fill our pores with oil and I am so thankful...and raised mine the same way.

    We all learn (and many too late) that outer beauty is not what we should have been looking for. Great article. ^

    As a young man I must admitt we are living in a world where inside is not as popular as outside. It makes me sad as well as when you go to apply for a job is not about qualification anymore, but about the look. All you written is true but hard to apply into people heads lately.

    Thank you for sharing :-)
