How do you feel more beautiful? As natural as possible, accepting the passing years. As I said I take care of my facial skin, wear little makeup (mascara and eyeliner), don't dye my hair (I've been assuming my whites since I was 35) and take care of my body and mind by paddling. I have days, but most of the time I leave the house feeling good 😊
