beauty not so secrets anymore

1. wash your face every morning. every single morning. then moisturize. something with sunblock in it. do it.
2. keep your nails super short and polish-free if you dont have time to keep them perfectly filed and painted.
3. if you're going to splurge, splurge on a great haircut. and be brutal; if you don't like the cut, use someone else next time. the only reason she's being nice to you is cuz of the money; she doesn't actually like you. in ten years i haven't had my hair cut by the same person twice. i'm a third wave hair slut.
4. wear comfortable shoes. hobbling along in stilettos is simply hideous.
5. dress appropriately for the weather. the swedish have a saying: there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes. shivering and sweating unnecessarily makes you look like a stupid idiot. cotton sundresses in the summer, cashmere in the winter.
6. instead of spending hours going for that just-fell-out-of-bed look, just don't spend that much time on your looks. read a book. it's going to make you more attractive than anything you could do with a hair dryer or eyebrow comb.
7. be happy.
8. sleep well. take care of business and be good to people so you don't stay up worrying at night.
9. eat as many raw fruits and vegetables as you can and drink lots of water.
10. don't smoke cigarettes.

now you know.
