Beauty Tip of The Day & A Giveaway

Cucumber EyesImage by melodramababs via Flickr

I am sure many of you have noticed the Beauty Tip of the Day widget here on Ramblings. I've really enjoyed having the widget on the site, as I feel it has a lot of good tips to offer. My favorite so far has been No Excuses:

Getting home late from the party and too tired for your normal makeup removal routine? Stash Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towelette in your bedside table for fast and easy makeup removal…you don’t even need water. They have an exclusive cleansing system, with oil- and dirt-trapping fibers, that works like a magnet to remove up to 40 percent more make-up than other leading towelettes to keep you looking your best. One less regret in the morning.

I am very bad about going to bed with my make up on. Now my Pond's Wet Cleansing Towelettes are on my night stand, so I always have a way to scrub my face. I also keep a package in my person for cleaning my face after I finish working out a Curves. My face is looking great!

So, check out this cool widget for great tips on skin, nail, hair care and more. I am always learning something. I know lots of moms who don't spend much time taking care of themselves, but these easy tips make fussing over yourself a bit easy as can be. I am all about fast and easy when it comes to beauty, I just don't have time to fuss. Thanks to these tips, I can look good in a flash!

What are some of your favorite beauty tips? I have a beauty product assortment from Unilever to give to one lucky winner. All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me your favorite beauty tip. That's all there is to it! Deadline to enter is Friday 11/13/09 at 11:59pm CST. Be sure you leave a way for me to contact you if you win.

Good luck!

My favorite beauty tip is to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night and drink plenty of water. Doing both, of course is easier said than done.

April said...

I like the tip to not stay in the shower any longer then 10 minutes so as to not dry out your skin.

I never use soap to cleanse my face. I've only found a foaming cleanser with feverfew in it that cleanses and doesn't irritate my rosacea.

I always put on lip balm before I go to bed. It keeps my lips soft.

My favorite beauty tip is to make sure you use a humidifier in the house. When your skin and mucus membranes feel really dry it may be there is not enough moisture in the air.

My beauty tricks have all been learned from my mother - always wash your makeup off before bed (I cheat and keep makeup remover cloths handy), moisterize your hands, face, elbows, and feet, and always brush your teeth. And DO NOT go to bed with a mask on (dad hated that)!

My favorite tip other than nearing sleeping in makeup, is to apply warm honey to your face, let it stay on about half an hour and rinse off. It leaves your face moist, soft and smooth.

Erica C. said...

I am pretty basic. I wash my face morning and night, and always use an oil-free moisturizer afterwards. I've had great skin since.

kakihara said...

This sounds harsh but believe me it works magic--if you had a late night and have a big day and look tired--take a big bowel put in water and some ice cubes --hold your face in the water for as long as you can--it works wonders!!!

I learned that keeping my eye cream in the fridge really helps with those puffy bags!

I slather my feet with Vaseline and put thick white socks on before bed. I wake up in the morning with noticeably softer feet when I do this!

Pamela said...

My beauty tip/mantra:
drink plenty of water, exfoliate, moisturizer must have broad spectrum SPF protection.

annalene said...

I have oily skin so moisturizer isn't always my friend. I use Q tips to apply toner or moisturizer to any areas that are dry or need exfoliation. Helps to concentrate the product in problem areas.
