“Are we changing the idea of what beauty is? Let’s hope so.
I’m not the typical Hollywood beauty. Let’s hope we’re looking at the insides of people a little more.”

“My greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself.
I don’t use special creams or treatments – I’ll use a little bit of everything.
It’s a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself.
I believe that a lot of how you look
is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life.
Happiness is the greatest beauty secret.”
~ Tina Turner,
Recording Artist, Dancer, Actress & Author,
“If there’s no inner peace, people can’t give it to you.

You have to look at the whole thing,
not just a matter of outward appearance or whatever.
It has to do with one’s character, personality,
upbringing and so on.”
