Advice from Japanese Grandmothers on How to Be Beautiful

#85: Advice from Japanese Grandmothers on How to Be Beautiful

Jacqueline Hellyer - Tuesday, November 12, 2013

I’m not sure where I found this, but it’s wonderful advice. It’s pretty much the approach I’ve always followed, and I look pretty good for my age!

  • Drink pure water. 
  • Breathe good air deeply.
  • Live in a clean house. 
  • Good skin comes from a clean body, so make sure to eat foods that purify the body. 
  • Eat a wide variety of simple foods. 
  • Sleep at least 8 hours a night, and go to bed before 11pm. 
  • Enjoy nature.
  • Stay tranquil and calm, by keeping a relaxed mind. 
  • By the age of 40, the mind is visible on the face. So improve your outlook and you will improve your face. 
  • Don’t sit around worrying. 
  • Control your desires: don’t always want what you can’t have. This unsatisfied-yearning makes a woman ugly. 
  • Don’t complain, don’t be envious, don’t be irritated. Your health will deteriorate and your skin will look terrible.  
  • Enjoy lovemaking. You will have glowing shiny skin and a relaxed face. 
  • Accept your age and the changes in your beauty. A beautiful old person is beautiful because their mind and spirit are wise and graceful.
