"DON'T TOUCH YOUR FACE"
-Me, 22 years old
"Don't touch your face or you'll break out" they said, "Don't pick your spots or you'll get scars" they said. Yeah, they were right. Don't touch your face (within reason) if you can help it, just don't. Your skin will thank you later.
-My Mum, 52 years oldWhen she was younger my Mum used to think that you basically just slapped makeup on and that was it, no blending, no nothing. Cue the foundation lines and the un-blended eyeshadow, it hurts my soul just to think about it. Now while I haven't witnessed pictures of this for myself I can imagine it was pretty bad. After a fair amount of prompting she said that she read in a magazine that you should always blend your makeup really well and that's when things clicked for her (and I can safely say that she's been blending ever since!).
-My Nonna, 87 yearsMy Nonna isn't into beauty by any means but I could really learn a thing or two from her when it comes to keeping up a routine of moisturising and nourishing your skin. Every day and night, without fail she moisturises her hands and body with just a Nivea moisturiser and she's been doing this for as long as I can remember. She's 87 and her skin is always soft and smooth, meanwhile I'm 22 and my hands are dry like the Sahara desert. So it goes to show, you don't have to have any kind of a fancy or expensive moisturiser, sometimes it's all just about keeping up a routine and sticking with it.
Now I'd love to know, what's the best beauty tip you've ever learned?
