With Father’s Day being tomorrow (already!), I’ve decided to throw together a few tips, tricks and secrets I have learned from my dad over the years. You may be surprised, but our dads taught us a lot about beauty over the years!
Inner beauty comes from within. This one comes first because it’s so important and has really shaped me into the woman I am today. The most beautiful women are those that care for others and have a heart of gold. Personality is everything these days and sets you apart in a crowd, so make it a good one!
Love yourself first. As the great Justin Bieber once said, “You should go and love yourself.” And it’s SO TRUE. Once you learn to love yourself, other people will flock to you and want to be around you (mostly because they want what you’ve got — self acceptance). From a young age, our dads taught us to put ourselves first in life because self care is so important. The happiest women are the prettiest women, they light up the room.
Always wash your face. For as long as I can remember, when I was younger I would go into my parents bathroom while they got ready for just about anything. One thing my dad would always do, without fail, was wash his face. Even if he was in a hurry, he would at least splash some water on his cheeks and forehead to freshen up. This is a trick I’ve carried with me over the years, and now that I’m on my own, I’m the same way. Whether I treat myself to a full-blown facial in my bathroom (masque, cucumbers and all!), or a quick rinse to wipe away the grime of the day, I always feel super refreshed when I leave the house.
I’m sure there are plenty of other lessons I’m missing from over the years, but mostly our dads taught us to love ourselves, don’t stress the small stuff, and take care of yourself. And to be honest, I’ve found that that’s really all you need in life. At times they may just seem like the silly guy that can’t take anything seriously, but our dads have got this life thing figured out!
What are your plans for Father’s Day?
