Beauty is only skin deep. Ever heard of that saying? We agree. Being beautiful has to do with so much more than just the outside appearance. Do we mind a beautiful appearance? Not at all, we encourage women to look after their appearance. We do however believe to be truly beautiful it is not only the outside that counts. Our heart is where our true beauty lies. Our character can make us truly beautiful. However, here are a few cost effective and very important beauty tips that we tend to forget and that are so important when we want to look after our appearance and longevity.

Water also flushes out toxins from your body for clearer skin. It is something that is a necessity and will definitely contribute to your beauty – That is if you keep at it. Consume at least 2 liters of water everyday. Add some lemons, strawberries, mangoes or limes as a refresher and to add some vitamins to your beauty drink. To make it easy on yourself, buy a water bottle that holds at least 500 ml and prepare your water vitamin infusion every morning. If you carry it around you will remember to keep refilling it with water. Are you drinking enough water?
