To keep your hair from tangling while you sleep, use a silk pillowcase! A silk pillowcase is gentle on your hair and will allow it to lay smoothly on the pillow as you rest. You’ll wake up with your hair looking great! If you don’t have a silk pillowcase, you can lay a silk scarf across the pillow.
Remember that excess sun exposure is not only bad for your skin, it is also bad for your hair. As a result of sun exposure hair may become dry, brittle, fragile and discolored. Sun exposure can tear protein bonds in your hair and make your hair permanently weaker. So, if you are going to be spending a lot of time in the sun, remember to wear a hat.
Avoid conditioner if your hair is fine. Actually, applying conditioner one or two times per week is more than enough. Conditioner can weigh down fine hair, and prevent it from being as shiny as it could be. So use conditioner sparingly if you want hair that looks bright and shiny.
If you have discovered little white bumps under your eyes, know that these are called Milia and are quite common.

If you have skin that tends to get shiny, you can do one of two things throughout the day. If you want to be fancy, you can buy a packet of face-blotting sheets.

Let’s say you love your foundation color, but as your skin matures, it doesn’t moisturize like it used to.

Two, your skin will be better moisturized.
