Beauty Tips For Women

I love magazines. For the past few years, my father's wife has given my sister's and I a magazine subscription for Christmas. I love getting it in the mail every month. I have also recently discovered the joys of online magazines. Take Scrubs, for instance. This is a magazine geared towards nurses, but let me tell you, they have articles even us non nurses can enjoy. I just read a great article called "Wake Up Looking Younger", which listed tips for doing just that.

The first tip was to never wear makeup to bed. I have heard this before, and to be truthful, I love showering at night. there is nothing more comfortable than sliding a clean, warm, relaxed body into bed every night. At least there isn't in my opinion.

The second tip was to use a facial moisturizer. This is one thing that I do not do, but think I need to start doing. I want my skin to look as good as my moms does, and she has always used a face cream.

The third tip was surprising to me. Did you know that you should sleep on your back because sleeping face down or on your side can cause more wrinkles? This is one tip I know I can't follow. I always sleep on my side or tummy.

The fourth tip was something I never thought to do, and that's to brush your lips when brushing your teeth. After, make sure and apply a lip balm.

The last tip, and this is the one I know and follow, is to tweeze at night. Now, I don't do my eyebrows. I never have. I do, however, have these awful hairs on my chin that I constantly have to pluck. Plucking can cause redness, so doing it at night gives your skin a chance to heal while you sleep.

These tips can apply to every woman, not just nurses, because we all want to look our best. I read two other articles, too. One was about your nails, and the other was about makeup. I'm not going to share those tips with you here. If you want to know, go read the articles. Check out the magazine. I know you will enjoy it just as much as I do.

I am a back sleeper so got that one covered, I don't wear make up so don't have to worry about washing it off before bed (except once in a while if we go out), don't use moisturizer, always feels like I need to rewash my face after it. Don't like the feel.

I'm not a magazine reader, but can see how getting something every month is like getting the gift over and over.

These are great tips, which I've already incorporated except for the tweeze at night. I had never heard that one. I used to sleep on my stomach and side, but I sleep on my back more often now.
