I can think of 3 simple "beauty" tips that I learned long ago...
1. My Mother told me, long ago, to push your cuticles back with a washcloth each time you are in the shower. They won't split or hang anymore and you won't ever have to have them trimmed again.
2. My Husband told me, long ago, to rinse out your hair conditioner BEFORE you wash your back. (Breakouts on your back a problem? No more!)
3. My Friend told me, long ago, not to waste your money on those pumice, exfoliating, lipstick thingys. While washing your face just wipe your lips. Don't scrub too hard. Then don't forget your lips when moisturizing your face.
