Having good health is something that is so important to all of us. Nobody likes to be ill. Have you ever looked in the mirror when you’ve had the flu? And we all know that being fit and healthy gives us a more desirable body shape too. These days, we are more aware than ever how good health and a healthy body weight can make us look and feel good. But is that really all we need to feel that we are beautiful as well?
Most of us see our own image far more these days than our parents ever did. Social media means that selfies and other people’s photographs of us are available online twenty-four hours a day. There are hundreds of pictures of us there for the whole world (or at least our friends) to see. It’s possible this exposure makes us more concerned with our appearance than our parents were. Yet, the press seem to think we are less healthy than they were when they were our age.
I think good health is certainly important to how good you look and feel. After all, healthy diets and lots of exercise keep our skin, hair and nails well nourished and rejuvenated. Most importantly, we feel energetic and vibrant. This helps us to feel confident, and so we smile. What could be more beautiful than a smile?
But if good health was all you needed, there wouldn’t be a huge cosmetics industry. There wouldn’t be any need for cosmetic treatments either. Plenty of fit and healthy people still wear makeup and treat themselves to the odd facial or spa day. These treatments make us feel better, and we feel more beautiful in our own skin too.
More and more clinics like the one at belcarahealth.com, are offering medical, health and cosmetic treatments under one roof. This is because each of these specialist areas are important for their patients. It makes sense to use a service that can provide all that you may need under one roof. Having access to so many specialists, can offer you the treatments you want that can complement your healthy lifestyle.
People who live an active and healthy lifestyle do seem to look healthier. They can appear younger and more beautiful than those that aren’t quite so active. Plenty of exercise and activity can help your body to remove toxins and fluids that can cause puffy eyes, blemishes, and bloating. A good diet nourishes the body to provide healthy looking skin, bright eyes, and shiny hair. It makes sense to take advantage of the healthy options in life.
Of course, many of us live in a world where brilliant white teeth that are perfectly aligned have become the norm. Unusually shaped features and unkempt eyebrows are just not socially accepted. The ‘natural’ look in this case is not always considered OK. We whiten the teeth and use orthodontics to create the perfect smile. Eyebrows are shaped and filled with makeup. And lots of people would happily take a nose job if they felt their natural shape was drawing negative attention. Perhaps it shouldn’t be this way, but sadly it seems to be so.
Good health certainly makes a difference to our looks and our mood. It’s obviously essential if we want to enjoy everything in life. But it isn’t always enough. Feel beautiful.
