HOME / BEAUTY / 3 BEAUTY SECRETS YOUR MOM IS TIRED OF TELLING YOU

We get it: you’re busy being a strong, independent woman. But every once in a while, you still need to listen to that voice inside your head (a.k.a. your mom). She reminds you of the same things over and over but you know what – she just wants the best for you. Beauty is one thing she can be an expert in, so pay attention to what she’s saying. You might learn something new too.

1. You can get ready in less than an hour!

What’s taking you so long? While ‘I woke up like this’ doesn’t always translate to a prim and proper look, Mom must have figured it all out with her insta-beauty cheat sheet: focus on the hair, lips and nails. A Wet Brush should come in handy when you’re fresh off the bath and need to fix your hair ASAP. It easily detangles knots in every stroke. Bring out your red lippie (cue: BLK Long-lasting Liquid Matte Lipstick in Bold) when you’re afraid you’ll look underdressed. The lipstick’s so easy to apply and it doesn’t wear off right away.

2. Don’t go to bed with your makeup on.

Take care of your skin while you’re still young. Observe the basic habit of removing your makeup before hitting the sheets. It will keep you from getting a dull complexion, wrinkles, and breakouts. Get over your laziness and wash that face with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Its mild formula works on any skin type. If you’re keen on a one-step trick, the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is your friend because you don’t need to rinse! Just dab it on a cotton ball and gently pat on the face to remove impurities and makeup. An on-the-go option is The Face Shop Herb Day Cleansing Wipes. Aside from wiping away dirt, it leaves the face feeling refreshed and moisturized.

3. Stop spending so much on lavish essentials. A facial treatment makes a better long-term investment.

We’re no strangers to stress. There’s constant traffic on the road and a heavy workload to manage. Tiredness can take a toll on our skin. While we can treat ourselves to lavish essentials in store, nothing beats a Dermclinic Total Rejuvenating Facial Treatment. Avail of a 45-minute session and religiously stick to it. Instead of buying trendy skincare products on an impulse, maintaining that trust with your go-to derma can help you find the ultimate secret to a youthful glow.
