TIP NO. 44 – NEVER SLEEP WITH YOUR MAKE-UP ON
When at 89 my mother died, she still had beautiful, clear skin, and was often asked what her secret was. “Never going to bed with my make-up on” was her reply.
It is also said that your gens have something to do with good skin, but this being so or not, taking good care of your skin will keep it young and healthy looking. – and it is therefore, most important to keep it clean – to remove the pollution of the day – to give it rest, a chance to breathe.
I know from experience that there are evenings I am so tired that I would rather just fall into bed, but making the effort not to, my face rewards me the next morning with looking healthy and fresh — your skin too will look better if you take your make-up off every night!
See you tomorrow
TIP NO. 26 – TLC GOES A LONG WAY
Everything in our life is better with a little TLC – even your clothes. Treat them kindly and well, they will repay you by always making you look good.
When getting undressed don’t put clothes over the back of a chair, or worth yet, drop them on the floor because they need to be washed or dry cleaned. Instead hang them up, or at least fold them neatly while they are waiting to go to the cleaners or being washed, avoid wrinkling them unnecessary because even pressing them later does not always make wrinkles disappear totally and does not improve their shape.
Doing a wardrobe consultation recently my client, who had lots and lots of t-shirts, I think like most of us, had rolled them up and stuffed them in a drawer. When we pulled them out they looked more like rags than t-shirts – believe me they didn’t make her look good when she put them on — please fold them before placing them on a shelf or in a drawer, you don’t want to look like you are coming out of the washing machine.
Another way to help your clothes to keep their shape is not to use wire hangers; use good plastic hangers, or wooden ones for coats and jackets.
The money you have spent on your wardrobe can only pay real dividend when you take care of your investment by giving it a little Tender Loving Care.
See you tomorrow
