Placethe brush in the middle of the lashes, thenpull it outwards, almost to the tips, andhold the brush there for a while (about15–25 seconds, experiment a little to findyour perfect time). Then, take the brush therest of the way. Keep layering until you’vegot your desired result.NICOLINE’S TIP FOR HANDLING A REAL”bad-hair-day”GOES SHOPPING WITHOUT MAKEUPDespite her role as a beauty ambassador, Nicoline does not hesitate to leave the house without makeup.

THINKYOURSELFGORGEOUS– tips from the coach60 % of the respondents in a British survey says they are ashamedof how they look. But when walking around town an ordinaryday, the majority of the people you meet are not ugly, right? Anotherstudy in turn says the average woman thinks no less than 36 negativethoughts about her appearance every day. Is there a connection to befound here? Are we imagining ourselves more ugly than we really are –and in that case: can we do something about it?AboutJennieJennie Ricci works with coachingand counseling. She’s a certifiedNLP Master Practitioner andconversational therapist, amindfulness instructor and hasa Degree of Master of Sciencein Business and Economics.She’s passionate about personaldevelopment and mental training.14Every day billboards and ads bombard uswith smiling, gorgeous people. People,whose bodies are perfect in every detail,who promotes the latest diets, exerciseprograms or miracle products. Of coursewe are affected, says Jennie Ricci, coachfocusing on personal development.– The beauty ideal tells us to getskinnier and skinnier at a time when theaverage person instead is gaining weight.This is an unsustainable equation. Research has even concluded that only onewoman out of 40 000 is able to matchtoday’s ideals.If only And yet, we strive for the perfect body,the most beautiful hair, luscious lips anda cute nose. Thinking that, when we’redone fixing ourselves up we’ll do all thethings we’re not doing today – and livehappily ever after. Because if you’re reallybeautiful, then you must be happy, right?– No, that’s hardly the case, says JennieRicci. Just because someone is beautifuldoesn’t mean they’re automatically happy.It’s easy to imagine that cosmetic surgeryor lots of lost pounds will change yourwhole life. Usually, it’s not that simple,even though weight loss for examplemay be the starting point of your journeytowards a new life.True beauty lies in your self-esteemWhat is it that makes a person attractive?Beauty is about so much more than yourlooks. It can be about charisma, charm,your voice, your laugh – yes, all of yourpersonality. So what happens to yourbeauty if you don’t feel good about yourself? Too many negative thoughts on yourappearance eventually turn into ”truths”that erode your self-esteem. We compareourselves with photo-shopped celebritieswhose perfect looks radiate discipline andcontrol, and feel we aren’t good enough.Then, what does that say about us? Thatwe are a bunch of lazy couch potatoeswith no self-control? This kind of thinkingdoes not do any wonders for your selfesteem either. Instead, to start buildingour self-esteem we need to becomeaware of what we’re saying to ourselves.Jennie means this is where we need to start.
Think yourself gorgeousThink yourself gorgeousBuilding your self-esteem is not a quick fix. It’s an ongoing processthat takes a lot of practice. But it’s totally possible. You can do it. Infact, you can think yourself beautiful. At least in the sense that youwill feel beautiful – and that’s really all that counts, right?OUR COACH’S BEST TIPS ON HOW TO GET STARTED:123Being a little shallow is totally okThere’s no need to feel stupid for thinking thesenegative thoughts on your appearance, you are farfrom alone in doing so. The point is to becomeaware of the problem and be willing to work with it.Become aware of your inner criticWhat do you tell yourself about your body andyour appearance? Listen to the voice within andwrite it all down. Also, be observant of how youcompare yourself to others. It’s perfectly all rightto be inspired, to think ”if she can do it, so can I”,but never let your inner critic get you down.”478” 910Make an active choiceEvery time a negative thought pops up, you havea choice. Either you do something about it, or youlet it go. The choice is yours. Can’t let it go? Get upand do something. Call a friend, go for coffee andtalk about other things, go to the gym or bake acake. Anything that will take your mind off it.56Say nothing to yourselfthat you wouldn’t say tosomeone you love.Stick to the truthStanding in front of your mirror and tellingyourself you’re beautiful is great – as longas you believe it. But don’t let it becomesomething you do, just because someonetold you to. Remember that you can’talways trust your feelings to be the truth.There will be good days and bad days –that’s completely normal. Instead, trust inthis: you are totally OK. All day, every day.Work with what you can controlGetting stuck in thoughts about things you can’tcontrol will only lead to hurt. Focus on thingsyou can control: your thoughts, decisions andactions. Here’s where you’ll find the key to the lifeyou want.Put up your stop signOnce and for all: stop dwelling. Nothing getsbetter by getting stuck in a loop of negativethoughts. Put up your mental stop sign andchange into your problem-solving hat. Insteadof thinking ”why am I so fat?” think ”what canI do to lose weight?”Shift your focusPursue a greater self-awareness. Shift your focusfrom appearance to personality, highlight yourstrengths and work with your weaknesses.Evaluate your valuesSometimes it’s all too easy to accept otherpeople’s values as our own. These situationsactually call for some critical thinking. Dare toquestion society’s views on beauty, how doesthat correspond with your own?It’s ok to be unhappy sometimesWe all have our bad days, nothing wrong withthat. It’s no big thing to dislike something in yourappearance for a day. It’s when the thought staysin your head for weeks or months that you needto start working Step out of the waiting roomYou’re already good enough as you are. Stopmaking plans for what you will do they day you’vetaken care of everything on your wish list. Livenow, that’s so much more fun. And there’snothing more beautiful than people who are happywith themselves and their life 15
HAVE YOUBOUGHTTHE BEAUTYMYTHS?From your mom or your grandma or well-meaningbut ill-informed friends, beauty myths are passedon through generations. But is there any truth tothem? Join us for some serious beauty myth busting.YOU GET PIMPLES FROM EATINGCHOCOLATE?Science says: false. Instead they suspectthat the milk in milk chocolate may makeacne worse. Junk food is another possibleculprit, since food with high GI triggers yourblood sugar, which in turn may affect yourskin the same way that hormonal changesdo – PMS for example.CHLORINE IN THE POOL WILLMAKE YOUR HAIR TURN GREEN?Actually, copper is the culprit here. Especiallyin older pool systems, copper may be secretedfrom the pipes and leave traces in your hair.Soaking your hair in drinking water beforejumping in helps, your hair won’t be so eagerto soak up the pollution when already wet.If the damage has been done, go for a deepcleansing shampoo and a hair mask.YOUR HAIR GROWS QUICKER IF YOU CUT IT OFTEN?Not true. Your hair always grows at the same speed, regardless of howoften you cut it. However, the risk of split ends increase without regulartrimmings, this may cause your hair to break easier and because of thisyour hair might lack the strength to grow past a certain length.16SLEEP DEPRIVATION CAUSES DARKCIRCLES UNDER YOUR EYES?Lack of sleep can cause lots ofproblems, for example weight gainor memory loss. But it has nothing todo with the dark circles under youreyes. Instead, these are your parentsfault. Dark circles are caused by a highconcentration of veins below the superthin skin under your eyes – somethingthat’s genetically conditioned and notaffected by lack of sleep. However, thebags under your eyes may very wellturn up after a late night on the town
Beauty mythsCUCUMBER REDUCES SWELLINGUNDER YOUR EYES? Yes, this mightwork. But it’s not really the cucumberitself that does the trick – it’s the coolingeffect it provides. So for maximum results,grab your slices straight from the fridge.Cold tea bags is not a bad idea either.SHAVING MAKESTHE HAIR COARSER?False. The prickly feeling when hairis growing out after a shave comesfrom the strands being cut straight off.When they regain their usual length,everything will feel the same again.Nail polish should be kept in the fridge?False. Nail polish should be stored in the dark, but they may actuallyspoil if the temperature is too high or too low. Room temperaturedoes the trick.BRUSHING YOUR HAIR 100 TIMESMAKES IT SHINE?Doubtful. Although it can providesome shine by distributing your scalp’snatural oils into your hair it’s hardlyworth it, since over-eager brushingdoes too much damage to your hair.CROSSING YOUR LEGS GIVES YOUVARICOSE VEINS?False. Crossing your legs has nothing to do with it. Varicoseveins occurs when the blood vessels transporting the bloodback to your heart expands and can’t pump the blood backproperly. Prevent the problem by getting enough exercise andmaking sure you don’t stand up for too long at a time.RUBBING YOUR TEETH WITHLEMONS MAKE THEM WHITER?No, no, no – not a good idea. The acidin lemons damages the teeth’s enamel– and it can’t be repaired.17
EAT YOURSELFGORGEOUSMost of us already knowthat a well-balanced dietmakes us feel better. Butdid you know that thereare specific ingredientsthat’ll help you look betteras well? The road to beautygoes through the kitchen,tag along and let us guideyou to the best ingredients.BLUEBERRIESThey may not look like much, but theselittle super berries contains loads ofantioxidants that’ll help protect your skinfrom premature aging.
