Who doesn’t love a good beauty hack?!  If you’re looking for a few ideas to revamp your beauty routine, look no further!  Read on for quick tips and product recommendations for putting your best face forward!

Combatting Wrinkles:

Recently, I posted a silly video here on an inexpensive way to prevent forming those pesky lines between your eyebrows.  For another recommended “wrinkle band-aid” see my Product Recommendations, below.


My number one trick for looking more refreshed (apart from my two favorite eye creams which I list below) is applying a thin line of black liquid eye liner to my top eyelid.  Liquid liner tends to show up more vibrantly on camera, if you’re selfie-inclined.

Glowing Skin:

I just heard about this “Marilyn Monroe trick’ for instantly dewy skin. Nivea Cream!  This drugstore classic acts as a makeup-free highlighter. Apply a scant amount to the tops of your cheekbones for an instant refresh.  I also have a favorite paste that reveals a radiant glow in my Product Recommendations, below.

For Dry, Chapped Hands:

Looking for a way to repurpose those plastic vegetable baggies from the grocery store?  Apply cuticle oil or another emollient lotion to your hands, then place each hand in a plastic bag (maybe ask your partner or child to put a rubberband around your wrist to secure).  Let it sit for 10 minutes—you can still scroll through your phone with the baggies on!  I also love a hydrating serum (listed below in my Product Recommendations) for instantly hydrating dry, chapped hands.
