    The best tip my mum shared was to use rice water to wash my face. It helps in brightening and whitening my skin and keeps the fine lines and pimples away.

  • theotherworldly says:

    My mom started me out on facial wash, toner and moisturizer when I was only 10 years old! She taught me to clip my hair up when I sleep, and change my pillow case often to keep my skin good. And to apply things that go inside the skin in the opposite direction of the pores, so stuff goes in; sunblock and foundation go in the direction of the pores so it doesn’t get in!

  • Priscilla says:

    My mom shared this tip with me — Use sunscreen daily and it’s never too early to start using anti-wrinkle products!

    My mum, she's always best at anything. She told me that taking shower (cleaning your body)everyday and apply nice moisturiser.Doing facial and body scrub once a week.Putting some baby oil or milk when taking a bath for soft and smooth skin.Eating balance, being happy, sleeping a lot and never ever be lazy about taking care of my face & body!It works amazingly :)Look sweet but dont try too hard. Stand up straight, head up, knockers out.


  • Ash says:

    The best beauty tip my mum passed on to me is to apply Hazeline Snow cream on my zit and the zit will subside & disappear after 1-2 days of application! It works wonders, especially on my sensitive skin! And one bottle of Hazeline Snow can last for a long time… :)

    My mum taught me that:
    1. Keep my face clean and don’t overscrub it. This will only irritate the skin and make it more prone to breakouts. Wash face twice a day with antibacterial soap, three times a day for acne prone skin.
    2. To avoid transferring bacteria and germs, clean my pillowcase, washcloths, towels, make-up brushes and applicators frequently.
    3. Lastly, beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder. There is a special uniqueness and individuality that sets us apart from the rest!

    The first best tip my mum shared with me is that the lesser makeup a woman wears, the younger she looks. The second is using Rosehip oil which can slow down premature aging and improves collagen and elastin levels in the skin.

    My mum used to always nag at me whenever i used makeup removers or toner on my face- because i always used the cotton pad in a downward motion. She advised me to use an upward and outward direction so my skin wont sag in the long run! Thanks to her, I’ve been defying gravity, thus helping my skin remain youthful and firm.

    Mom told me to wash my face twice a day. Drink lots of water, eat healthy(including lots of fruits) and get enough sleep. Always keep skin clean and to wear best smile on face each morning.

    Over the years, my mom has shared many beauty tips with me. The best part was how these tips were passed on to me: with love and concern that her young daughter would grow up to be a beautiful young lady who is lovely both on the outside as well on the inside. Thanks to her, I have cultivated a good skincare routine with a few beauty secrets such as *psst* using a honey lemon rinse for dull hair and adding a drop or two of tea tree oil to my facewash to prevent pimples!


  • yamapeace says:

    My mother told me that eating right was the best way! Having a balanced diet of carbohydrates (rice, noodles, bread), proteins (meat, dairy products), vitamins (fruits and vegetables) and minerals (plenty of water) and even fat (from nuts and fish like salmon) would ensure that you have a healthy body, and the beauty inside you will definitely shine out and give you that ravishing glow!
    Of course, having the right makeup that suits your skin tones too will no doubt enhance your features and make you look even better :D

    My mum told me many grandma tales with regards to beauty and stuff. Like using shampoo to wash my back to cure bacne, using the froth from porridge to apply on dry and chapped lips and lastly using sulphur powder mixed with lime juice to combat hair loss.

  • tulipp says:

    Mummy has always been a simple and frugal lady. She never goes out without makeup, but always used drugstore products on offer. She only has 1 of each item, buys a new one only when she runs out. She never changes the colours she picks, always the same hues of grey/dark blue eyeshadows. Its been so for all 22 years I’ve known her!

    But mummy taught me who often was inferior when it comes to looks, that makeup makes one feel better about ourselves and gives us better confidence. Beauty is confidence and feeling good about oneself.


  • El says:

    My mum was a simple lady.
    2 pieces of advice us girls received from her:

    1- “To maintain your fresh-faced beauty, it should look like you’ve not used any make-up at all. (But of course mum knows you have!)”

    2- “And to bring out your natural beauty each and every day, just smile and be yourself!”

  • cotton says:

    This very simple advice given.

    – Drink lots of water if you want to see the healthy glow on your skin! Of course not forgetting a balanced diet coupled with exercise.
