Audrey Hepburn's Beauty Tips

Image thanks to Guillaume Balfin

Ok, so apparently these aren't actually the words of Audrey herself but were in fact composed by a fella named Sam Levenson. All the same, she is said to have quoted them many times and I'm sure she brought them to life in a way that only she could.

"For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives and the passion that she shows.

The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.

I've read this before and love it, but didn't know that it wasn't Audrey herself who said it! Thanks for sharing. Must save it :)

Also, Sherin and I are having a skirt giveaway contest at our blog. Do stop by if you have a minute!

*Sigh* Lovely Audrey!!! I've yet to watch Paris When It Sizzles, but when I do, be sure there'll be a post on her style in that film too.
