Best Beauty Tips From the Catwalk
[dropcap]D[/dropcap]o you want the kind of natural beauty, radiance and glow that turns heads? And wouldn’t you like it to be the kind that doesn’t require you to sneak out of bed to reapply it before “he” wakes up?
Then here’s a secret formula from some of the world’s top models, what THEY say is essential to the foundation of all true beauty. (And yes, even though these beauty queens can rely on a truckload of products and Photoshop, they know, ultimately, this is one of the fundamental pillars of it all.)
The way you look is a reflection of how you feel.
Happy people look beautiful. Even science supports this fact. Studies show that both men and women find more attractive those members of the opposite sex whose stress hormone levels are the lowest.
Now, you might say, ‘Yeah, I’d feel great too if I looked like Gisele Bündchen. Easy for her to have her inner glow show!’
But if this was true, then what about all the celebrities who started off just as lucky in the genetic lottery, but whose lives and appearance ended up looking like a train accident?
The real truth is this: the inner balance that makes you look lovely is something that can and should be worked on. Even Ms. Bündchen needs to do that to retain her glorious looks. So she and a number of her fellow top models take care of their beauty, allure, balance and bliss by practicing Transcendental Meditation (TM) and making an effort to see life through truly rose-colored glasses.
In closing, here are a few inspiring quotes from these beauty experts to help you too “be the change you wish to see” in the mirror:
“Life can get so busy for everyone, regardless of what your profession is but it’s taking the time to have moments of gratitude that makes it meaningful. And it does take discipline, a consciousness to do that. Being grateful and happy is a choice, I think.”
Kerr believes that meditation boosts her brain with optimism, so she practices Transcendental Meditation 20 minutes twice a day.
“I believe in the power of intention and thought, so I always try to focus on the positive side of any situation”

"After all these years, I have come to the conclusion that above all, what makes one beautiful is feeling happy.“
“I’m 24. That sounds young, I know, but I have a lifetime of experiences that started to become a weight on my shoulders, as I have a tendency to hold onto feelings. I wanted to find a way of centering myself, of checking back in with my body and my mind. Transcendental Meditation has helped me stay clear and centered in the everyday chaos that is my life and it has absolutely transformed the way I live.“
“I was the kind of person who would always look at the negative side of things before the positive. I used to meet someone and straight away start looking at the negative thing about that individual. What Transcendental Meditation did is now when I look at an individual, I can only see the positive. Not only for people, but for things in general.“
“I would really recommend it (Transcendental Meditation) to anyone who’s looking for a way to make their life just a little bit easier or brighter. It’s actually made quite a massive change to mine: I don’t hold on to things anymore and I’m attracted to much more positive things. It’s also made me much better at sticking up for myself, which helps me to let go because I’ve said my piece.“

“Transcendental Meditation helps me a lot. It’s the most researched meditation out there, and it really helps with the immune system, depression and stress. It helps me to stay focused and calm. It’s just unbelievable, so I try to do it twice a day for only 20 minutes. It’s very easy and anyone can do it. It has been a gift to me.”
