Beauty Secrets of the Stars
Beauty certainly is in the eye of the beholder, and it is something that changes from season-to-season and generation-to-generation. Case in point: just watch an old movie from the early thirties. Women wore black, oxford shoes that tied up the middle with their skirts. If a woman wore a shoe like that today, she would look dumpy and old beyond her years. Yet at the time those films were made, the black oxford was considered a staple in any well-dressed woman’s wardrobe.

As Dale Carnegie said in his famous book in improving personal relations, How to Win Friends and Influence People: “Actions speak louder than words, and a smile says, ‘I like you. You make me happy. I am glad to see you.’”
And…a smile is absolutely free. It doesn’t cost a plug nickel.
I just want to smile
Mark Stibich, Ph.D., says that smiling not only makes us more attractive but it can improve our mood and immune function. I would like to add, if you feel “smile-challenged” on a particular day, just practice smiling in the mirror. Even if you don’t feel like it at first, given a few minutes, you will find yourself smiling more easily. It is like warming up the car.
