6 Keys To Beauty

Many women are obsessed with the concept of beauty. As a
society we build up the many aspects of physical, outer beauty.
Though women have typically been the ones focused on how to look
their best men are starting to be more open about their need to
look their best.

If you walk up to anyone on the street and ask them whether we
emphasize outer appearance more than we should you will probably
get a high percentage of "yes" answers but those same people
will do everything they can to look their best. This is why the
beauty industry is so strong.

So what are the key areas that we should focus on when we want
to become beautiful or maintain our beauty? Here is a 6 broad
areas that will cover your beauty needs:

1. Hair
2. Skin
3. Fitness
4. Cosmetics
5. Nail Care
6. Fashion

Hair:

A good haircut and styling can make your whole look. Our
society is becoming much more multicultural in the US so what
defines beautiful hair is changing. Companies are now producing
hair care products that are tailored to every type of hair.
Whether you have curly, frizzy, straight, oily or dry hair there
is a hair care product line at the drug store for you. There
are hair coloring treatments, hair straightening treatments and
perm products that are now available to take home. Even the men
have coloring treatments to hide their gray hairs.

Men tend to have it easy when it comes to hair since most of
them have shorter haircuts that don't require too much
maintenance but there is a huge demand for products related to
hair loss. Even though hair loss effects women, genetically men
deal with this challenge the most.

Skin:

Is beauty synonymous with youth? If you look at the area of
skin care you would definitely think so. As we age we lose
moisture in our skin. We no longer have that shiny new penny
look that the typical 5 year old has. The area of skin care is
benefiting from many advances in science. The beauty of the
skin is being restored by products that slough off the old skin
cells and apply nanotechnology to penetrate the skin.

Fitness:

True beauty does not mean you have to be razor thin but being
fit and active is the cornerstone to a healthy body. Though
dieting and weight loss get a lot of attention getting into a
regular exercise routine will help you define the look of your
body. Depending on your age and health you can be as aggressive
as you want in defining your exercise and fitness goals.

Cosmetics:

Natural beauty is not as appreciated as it used to be. Makeup
can be used to enhance a person's appearance. As we age we
definitely find more needs for that concealer that we hardly
used in our youth. Cosmetics can be a great tool to highlight
what we all see the most, our face. Cosmetics can be very
expensive and in the wrong hands can actually detract from your
appearance so use them wisely.

Nail Care:

Within the last 10 years we have definitely seen a jump in the
amount of nail salons. They can't be missed at your local mall.
Manicures and pedicures definitely can make you feel beautiful
and pampered. The hands in particular stand out in your
everyday interaction with others. Are you more apt to remember
someone with a great manicure or not?

Fashion:

Lastly is our obsession with the latest clothing fashions. Is
it too late to wear white? Bootcut or straightcut jeans? Every
morning we have to decide how and whether what we wear will
affect how others think we look. We get our cues from the
latest magazines and what people are wearing on our favorite
shows. For the creative among us we can define our own styles.

So if you want to look and feel beautiful be sure to focus on
understanding these 6 keys to beauty and how they relate to you.
Some of us may need more help in one area than another
depending on what nature gave us but we should always make the
most out of the beauty assets we have been given.
