You might wonder what does The Four Agreements have to do with improving your skin and achieving a radiant complexion?
A lot, as it turns out! I just returned home from an AMAZING retreat in beautiful Newport Beach with Don Miguel Ruiz, the author of “The Four Agreements” and his family. Based on the native Indians’ belief that each of us is an artist, and our life is our own piece of art that we are creating, Don Miguel Ruiz has simplified the Toltec’s Wisdom into 4 simple agreements to live a more fulfilled life:
1. Be impeccable with your word.
2. Don’t make any assumptions.
3. Don’t take anything personal.
4. Do the best that you can.
Be impeccable with your WORD really means being mindful with your intent behind your word and your thoughts. This concept deeply resonated with me and I thought of how powerful it is when it relates to beauty. The people that I find beautiful, are those people who feel and believe they are beautiful–they are able to find beauty within themselves and radiate that out into the world. Whether you have acne, wrinkles, or pigmentation it is so important to see yourself as the beautiful being that you truly are. Only then, will others see you the same way. So go home, look in the mirror and practice thinking and saying out loud to yourself: “I AM BEAUTIFUL”!!!
