Beauty Tips to Live By

I for one would love to know the beauty tips of the incredibly beautiful Audrey Hepburn.  How about you?   Although she was a glamorous actress and a fashion icon her beauty was more than skin deep.  She never considered herself to be beautiful which is what made her all the more so.

It is said that whenever Audrey Hepburn was asked about her beauty secrets she would quote her favorite poem.  She quoted it so often that over time it became synonymous with her.  Over the years she was mistakenly given credit for writing the poem. 

Here are Audrey Hepburn’s beauty tips by which we can all live a more enriched and beautiful life.

Time Tested Beauty Tips by Sam Levenson

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

 For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a 

For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.

 As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for 
helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
