Beauty Alphabet - X Y Z


Last Letters in Your Beauty Alphabet!

X-Y-Z for Extra Energy, Youth, Zest

"You may not have a Grecian nose, your hair may tend towards mouse, your suntan may be uncooperative and divide into freckles, but...

...if you have glowing health and vitality you will have a radiance which shines through your eyes and invests your whole personality with sparkle and charm.

Energy, youth and zest...these are the basis of true beauty, and they are yours if you follow four simple rules: Diet, Rest, Relaxation, and Exercise.  

Be sensible about your diet.  Most women nowadays know what foods are health-giving and energy building.  There are plenty of dietician's charts to advise you on the correct diet for your particular figure. Find the diet which suits you and stick to it!  Beauty of figure depends largely on your eating habits.  

Here is an invaluable health tip.  Instead of the early morning cup of tea, have the juice of an orange or lemon (or both combined) in a glass of water, with sugar if you wish.  You will feel much fresher and wide awake, and you will notice a big improvement in your health. 

You cannot have good health unless you have adequate rest and relaxation.  Plan your activities so that you have time to put up your feet, for early nights, for that weekend sun-bake.  If you feel really "strung up" and overworked, you'll find it difficult to relax.  This too, is a habit which needs practice.  

Don't Worry
Your mental attitude is most important to your health.  Many women ruin their health through unnecessary worry.  Worry will never solve a problem - do you best, then put the matter out of your mind.  A firm faith in the future is the greatest asset to your health and happiness.

And here is the last rule for health...exercise.  Daily exercise in fresh air with blow the cobwebs away and keep you youthful. If you are a working girl, go for a long walk in the cool evening.  Moderate exercise is essential for the not-so-young too.  Walking, swimming and golf are ideal for those who have lost the vigour of youth.

Beauty is far more than skin deep.  It is a habit of mind and body.  The health of your whole body and the state of your mind are the things that determine whether or not you have that "inner radiance" which transcends mere beauty of feature."
