“Do not let your adorning be the outward adorning of braiding the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine clothing. But let it be the hidden nature of the heart, that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.” – 1 Peter 3:3-4.
Sitting at 28 years old, I am yet to have met a woman that doesn’t want to be beautiful. When I say beautiful, I don’t just mean the outer shell, the vessel that carries our true essence, but beautiful in the way we love, the way we speak, and the way we treat others. The real heart and true core of our souls.
Does that mean there aren’t any women out there who don’t care about being beautiful? I don’t know, because I can only speak on the women I have met or encountered in my short yet interesting journey through life. But even those women, are only a small portion of the billions of women in this world. So while reading this, bare in mind that this is about my experience with women, not yours, not hers, but mine.
Too many of our women are falling into the traps of today’s culture. A culture that goes against what our Heavenly Father would want for his daughters. A culture that has allowed the artificial and the superficial define what’s hot and what’s not.
So what you’re about to read are my 3 beauty tips that I encourage all women to think about or apply as “make-up” in their life.
Most women these days are always on the hunt for the easiest and fastest ways to lose weight. Whether it be drinking the latest detox teas & eating paleo diets, to waist trainers and wraps. Sadly some turn to extreme measures like liposuction and bulimia.
But exercising is not only good for you physically, it’s also vital to help sustain your health mentally and emotionally. And that’s where “energize” comes in.
Having the right energy is essential for your well being. If your energy is negative, then you’ll attract negative energy, but if your energy is positive, then you attract positive energy. Sounds so simple, yet so many people don’t get it.
We all have different ways of maintaining our energy levels. Some people like to meditate, others visit psychiatrist but I like to pray.
Praying is the confidence we have in appproaching God, and knowing that whatever we ask of Him, it’s taken care of, only if it’s according to His will. So it gives me peace to know that whenever something doesn’t work out, I know God has other plans for me. I don’t waste no more time thinking of the shoulda, woulda, coulda’s, instead I focus on everything that’s going right in my life. So don’t be angry at God when things don’t go your way or ask Him to do this for you then you’ll do this for Him. It’s important to remember that God gives us love with benefits, so we shouldn’t serve Him with conditions.
As someone who has had eczema her whole life, I think this tip is mainly for myself plus it rhymed lol but I did want to touch on the importance of being able to love the skin you’re in. I myself am not a big make up fan, and I’m not saying that anyone that wears make up is ugly, but I feel I look better without it. I’m not conceited, I just prefer my natural look to wearing make up. And I’m sorry to say this, but everybody is starting to look the same to me. The eyebrows, the whiteness under the eyes. We’re losing our originality, our independance in the way we look. I have family members and friends who can’t leave the house without make up and it makes me sad because they’re the most gorgeous women I know! Make up is great to enhance our features, but it’s used as an armour for some to hide behind. Embrace your flaws ladies! It’s so liberating to love yourself with no conditions! Don’t wait until you’ve lost 10 kgs or when you’ve got your face beat. Love yourself the way you want to be loved. Don’t wait for validation or praise from those around you, know that God made you and He makes no mistakes. Dress yourself with dignity and strength and have no fear for the future, for you are fearfully and wonderfully made.
