All women deserve to be appreciated, respected, and admired. When a woman improves her appearance, an amazing thing happens. People begin to pay attention to her, listen to her, seek her company, ask her opinion. She becomes more confident, and this makes her look even better! As her confidence grows, so does the respect she receives – at work, at home, everywhere. As her insecurity falls away, she becomes more daring, self-assured, courageous; she finds she can do anything. Her life improves in every way.
A woman becomes more alluring through the creation of her choice of scent. The appeal of perfume is that it is at once ephemeral and empowering. It creates a shimmering invisible armor that lingers in a room long after its wearer has gone and infuses our imagination with a subtle power, hinting at a hidden identity. The message is, a woman must always smell good.
The fact is, women receive more respect not just from men but from other women too when they make themselves look good and show their self confidence. When they dress well, take care of their hair, and moderately/skillfully apply makeup, it affects the behavior of those around them in a positive way. And that makes them feel better and increases their confidence and self-esteem. And that gains them more respect, which makes them feel and look even better, and the cycle repeats. You’ve heard of the vicious circle? This is the virtuous circle…The Cycle of Beauty!
Beauty is a state of mind. It’s not question of whether you’re “pretty” or “plain”, young or old, thin or not thin, literate or illiterate… it’s a matter of your self-image; when you look good, you feel good. When you feel good, you look even better. And then you can do ANYTHING!
A good appearance shows that you respect yourself. When people see that, they feel respect for you too. Of course it is possible to respect yourself without making yourself look good, but when you take the trouble to fix your hair and your nails, put on makeup, and dress well, that also shows your respect for others. And when you give respect, you get respect.
Note however, whatever message you’re trying to send to the world, never forget the clothes you put that message in will determine the way it’s received. So, dress it carefully.
