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

Jacqueline Hellyer - Monday, November 11, 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 eight 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.
All great advice!
