You Can Have a Pretty Face and a Sexy Smile With These Helpful Tips - No Plastic Surgery Needed

Yes, I Want To Be 'Just Another Pretty Face'...

Men and women the world over would like to know how to have a pretty face. And in today's looks-oriented society, a pretty or handsome face is a valuable personal asset. Unfortunately, we often overlook the simple steps we can take towards a pretty charming face.

"It has been said that a pretty face is a passport. But it's not, it's a visa, and it runs out fast."

This famous quote from Julie Burchill, the controversial English feminist writer, is a golden nugget of truthful reality. The simple unvarnished truth is, our faces age.

Our faces show the wear and tear of daily living and the passage of time. And it's up to each of us to take care of our faces.

Fortunately, we don't need the expense and inconvenience of a face-lift to improve the appearance of our faces. There are several ways to have an attractive, friendly, and happy face without surgery, and at little or no expense.

Steps To Take Toward A Pretty Face

1- Almost everyone needs a moisturizer, even people with oily skins. Develop a nightly ritual of using a quality moisturizer. Try to use a natural botanical face cream.

And yes, men should use moisturizers too. Otherwise our faces look like wrinkled-up old catchers mits.

2- Watch your diet and drink plenty of water. Remember, our skin gets its nourishment from the foods we eat and the fluids we drink, not just from our moisturizers.

3- Always use sunscreen when you're out in the sun. A friend of mine, a lovely, radiant, youthful lady, has a beautiful face with flawless skin. She just turned forty. She looks twenty-five.

One of her many secrets to her beautiful face and flawless skin was to always wear sunscreen when outside.

2 Beauty Secrets Of Professional Models

Baking soda. Sprinkle a small amount of common baking soda on your facecloth when washing your face. This tip is right from the Oprah Show when she interviewed top models about their beauty secrets. Yes, I admit it, I use baking soda daily even on my weathered face. But my mature old face is as soft as a baby's behind.

Another tip from professional models is regular daily facial exercises. Learn facial exercises for toning facial muscles. Exercising the facial muscles can work wonders in improving the appearance of your face.

These exercises can help reduce sagging cheeks, double chins, jowls, and the well-known 'turkey neck.' You'll notice a visible improvement in your cheeks when you regularly exercise your facial muscles.

Our Faces Reflect Our Feelings, So Smile And Be Happy

Your face will be ten times prettier by simply smiling. Remember, your face is your most obvious tool of expression. It's the first thing people see. People form first impressions about us based on our faces. So show the world you're feeling happy by smiling.

You'll not only be prettier, people will wonder what you're up to.

Don't be a grouch. Be friendly. Smile. Laugh often. Smiling happy people are more approachable and prettier. Research has shown, without question, that we prefer the company of people who smile and make us laugh.

A True Story: The Pretty Lady And Mr. Average Guy

I once asked a friend, an attractive businesswoman in her mid-thirties, why she married a rather ordinary average looking guy, instead of another very handsome well-heeled suitor who had also proposed to her.

Her answer surprised me. She said, "John (her new hubby) isn't the handsomest guy in the world. But he smiled a lot, he made me laugh, and he was always fun to be with. I'll take fun and happy over handsome any day."

Take note guys - words of wisdom from a gorgeous woman who had her pick of men.

Having a pretty face doesn't require a face-lift or Botox injections. It doesn't require expensive facial cosmetics or laser treatments. It simply requires a common-sense regimen of sensible daily facial care, a sensible facial beauty program, and a positive happy mental outlook on life. And it requires you to SMILE!

Who says you can't be just another pretty face. Of course you can! Let's learn to love our pretty faces.

Now flash that beautiful smile of yours, give someone you love a hug, and face the world with a happy new outlook on life.
