You know...those little tidbits that you've gotten from friends, family and magazines over the years.
What's the one best beauty (for gals) or looking good (for guys) tip that you've ever gotten and still use all the time?
Can't wait to hear them!
Here's mine: Cold teabags for bags under the eyes. When I get up in the mornings I sometimes have really tired eyes, with dark circles and bags. My grandmother swore by just taking regular used teabags, putting them in the freezer and applying them to your tired, morning eyes. It seems to work better than anything else I have ever tried. So, enjoy your cup of tea in the evening and pop your teabag into a ziplock in the freezer. Tip...take them out of the freezer about five minutes before you want to use them so they aren't completely frozen.View Thread
I put sunscreen on my face, neck and chest every day. Even when I don't wear makeup, I use a tinted moisturizer that contains a 15 SPF.
And, when we go out in our boat or get in the pool I slather down with at least 30 waterproof all over.
However, I do sometimes forget to put sunscreen on my arms and legs if I am running out of the house fast on an errand. I'm getting better at it, but not perfect.
Definitely wish I had used sunscreen more when I was a teenager. I remember baking myself in the sun for that perfect summer tan every year. Hindsight is 20/20, so I just make sure to pound the habit into my own kids.
Do you make your kids where sunscreen even if you don't?
