Negative emotions can alter the appearance of the face by triggering stress hormones that cause acne outbreaks, dilating the pupils, which makes your eye color appear to change, and brings on frowns and scowls that can etch lasting lines.
Bad moods can harm your health. Chronic depression can lead to headaches, backaches, muscle pain, poor sleep and possibly even decreased immune functioning and cardiovascular damage. Thousands of women turn their lives around every year, but it's easier to start by driving in the right direction in the first place. Come out from under the covers and start now!
Our beauty regime should evolve as the years pass
When you're young, it's not hard to look great. It's all about natural beauty and simply taking care of your health. As you get older, it's a lot more work to look as young and healthy as you can. And every year it takes more. Don't wait for the whole thing to fall down. Looking beautiful is a journey and not a destination, and if you want to be beautiful, it's a daily process.

The History of Make~Up
From the copper and lead ore that the ancient Egyptians used to create the world's first cosmetics to the scientifically advanced products of today that can do everything from hide pores, smooth complexions and turn the pale green of your eyes a vivid shade of emerald, makeup has been an integral part of humankind for thousands of years. Over the centuries, women used burnt matches to darken their eyes, berries to stain their lips and young boys' urine to fade their freckles. They even swallowed ox blood in some misguided attempt to improve their complexions. Women throughout history put their health at risk with many of their homemade cosmetics. In some cultures, for example, women used arsenic, lead, mercury and even leeches to give themselves the pale appearance deemed beautiful in the old days.
You have many choices today in cosmetics and coming to the forefront rapidly is the Natural and Organic. They don't contain synthetic FD&C dyes, artificial fragrances, or petro-chemicals. Because natural makeups are made from mineral pigments and organic plant extracts, oils and waxes, they're gentle and healing.
There is also the category of Skin Care Make~Up which allows the skin to breath and function normally while still protecting it from air-born pollutants.
