When I was 15 or 16 sharp highlights were the trend. Everyone and I mean everyone had them and as a teen just about to go to college I too was going crazy to get them.
Unfortunately very long hair and an exceptionally strict mom meant that the highlights never happened. However at that time my mom sat me down and taught me a valuable lesson. She told me that everyone looks shiny and beautiful when they are 16 or 26 but less so at 36 or 46 and the real feat is to look beautiful as you age. Looking good when youth is on your side is hardly remarkable.
And somehow that made sense to me and I grasped that immediately. Henceforth I went on a preservation drive that lasted for decades and the first hair color I got was when I turned 36! Never did look back from that time though.
The point that I am trying to make here is that it’s ok to wear makeup and acquire a good wardrobe and get your hair done in the latest trend.
But what is essentially required is that skin, hair and health is kept paramount. And now even though I get my hair color changed on an average of twice a year but I still rock super healthy hair despite the awful heavy water of Karachi. And I am a firm advocate that all women should wear skin not makeup.
Hiding your real face under layers of primer and foundation isn’t beauty. But developing an essential beauty regimen and concentrating on skin care and health with lend you a natural glow that will always make you look more beautiful than a layer of makeup.
So always invest in your health and wellbeing and the rest will fall in place.
