Twinkle "Beauty Tip" Thursday!

Standing tall, feeling confident & believing in yourself — these are all important ways to feel your best. But as any woman who's ever stood in front of a mirror can tell you, beauty secrets count too!

Looking your best doesn't have to be complicated or expensive.

To kick off our *Twinkle* "Beauty Tip" Thursday with a bang, I'm giving you TWO FOR ONE! I feel these beauty tips are both timely & essential to keep in mind this Memorial Weekend!

Beauty Tip 1: Never Underestimate the Power of Moisturizer

Whether your skin is dry, normal, or even oily, if you can only afford one skin care product, experts say, your dollars will be well spent on a good moisturizer. I believe moisturizing two times daily is helpful in one's daily skin regimen.

If you're in your 20s or 30s, doctors say, moisturizers will give you some of the protection you need to keep skin from prematurely aging.
Often times a good moisturizer can take the place of a lot of products.

Beauty Tip 2: Sunscreen Is Your Best Anti aging Product

Thank you to my wise & beautiful mother for always harping on me to put on sunscreen during my teenage years. Of course all I wanted to do was layout in the sun & become a  glorified "sun goddess".  It only took me around four to five years to realize that my mom was 100% correct on this tip & her anti-sun comments are permanently embedded in my mind still to this day...Thanks Mom!:)

Before you see the plastic surgeon, before you plunk down half a paycheck on that pricey anti-aging cream, in fact, before you do anything, put on sunscreen. Did you know it's an amazing beauty secret that can keep us from "aging" faster vs. gracefully?

Now, I'm NOT saying to have absolutely zero vitamin D in your system. Doctors say some vitamin D is good for you! I do feel strongly that nice & healthy sun protection & daily SPF will increase your overall look. It will not only make you look good, but you feel fabulous as well!

I hope you enjoyed the first Twinkle "Beauty Tip" Thursday! Just a few fun tips to begin your Summer right! Remember everyone is beautiful inside & out. Every girl appreciates inexpensive suggestions & beauty tips. We look forward to providing different & interesting beauty tips on Thursdays throughout the Summer!

  1. I love using Cetaphil in the am and pm. At night I mix it with Retin-A. My dermo told me this and it's really counteracted the drying effects of using Retin-A alone. You don't need to buy La Mar or anything close in price. All one needs is Cetaphil and Retin-A.

  2. Sunscreen and bright wide-rim hats are the best for summer. :)
