Audrey Hepburn’s advice:

Below is a wonderful poem Audrey Hepburn wrote when asked to share her ‘beauty tips.’ It was read at her funeral years later.

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

If you share this with another woman, something good will happen . . You will boost another woman’s self esteem, and she will know that you care about her.

  1. Wow! A terrific post for those of us who grew up on “Breakfast at Tiffany’s!” and watched Hepburn grow her compassion and leadership.

    With so many gifted young girls and women who growing up around the world with distorted body image issues (yes, even in the most impoverished settings too!) — Hepburn’s words offer the sort of perspective we don’t often get from starlets and celebs.

    Let’s make this viral! I’ll do my part!

  3. This is an amazing peace of information! I never knew that quote was actually part of something that Audrey wrote, even as a poem! I’m so glad that I learn new things everyday. :)
