7 Beauty Tips from Mom That Will Never Get Old

1. Nothing Wakes You Up Like a Little Lipstick

The ever-present tube of classic red in your moms purse wasnt just for dressing upwe now understand what a pick-me-up it can be on any day.

2. Always Slather Yourself in SPF

You may have squirmed or rolled your eyes as she coated you in Coppertone when you were little, but now you (hopefully!) get it: Applyingand reapplying, and reapplyingSPF is absolutely essential to staying safe in the sun and guarding your skin against wrinkles and age spots.

3. Dont Bite Your Nails

Whether her method entailed bitter-tasting treatments or candy rewards, were thankful that she broke us of this habit. These days, our picture-perfect cuticles and well-buffed moons are the stuff manigrams are made of.

4. Wash Your Face Every. Single. Night.

Face washing once seemed like an unnecessary step in our nightly routine, but its now an unskippable part of our skin-perfecting regimens.

5. A Curler Is Your Ticket to Big Lashes

What may have appeared to be a torture device at age eight became the saving grace of our teen years and beyond. Just a simple squeeze of a curler adds volume and pizzazz to otherwise blah lashes.

6. Wear a Scent People Can Remember You By

Is there a perfume you associate with your mom? We thought so. Decades later we understand the importance of aligning ourselves with a signature, unforgettable fragrance.

7. Stick With What Works

While were all for experimentation, theres something to be said for our mother's loyalty to a timeless bob or nude nails. Some looks, just like their advice, really do never go out of style.
