When I was growing up my Grandmother used to always say “Pretty is as Pretty Does.”
As a child I knew what she meant– Be Nice!
While there is a saying that “Beauty is only skin deep,” I think that the statement “Pretty is as Pretty Does,” contradicts the notion that beauty is only on the outside– That beauty comes from within.
We spend a lot of time thinking about the external. Fighting those wrinkles, with lotions and potions. But there is little talk about our “Pretty is as Pretty Does” Self, and how our emotional health transforms our beauty.
Think for a minute about the women you find most beautiful. I think of Audrey Hepburn. Her beauty was not only external but it was her grace and humor that made her more than just pretty, it made her beautiful.
Think for minute about a women you know that is pretty, but she doesn’t cross over into beautiful. Some one like Lindsey Lohan comes to mind (maybe because she was recently in the news). Her inside unhappiness over takes the fact that she could be a beautiful women.
Positive mental traits do seem to make a women more beautiful. Pretty is as Pretty Does.
So add “Pretty is as Pretty Does” to your skin care routine, it is a free and cheap method that is a proven age defining method.
