What's the Best Beauty Advice Your Mom Gave You?


My mom has shared her wisdom throughout the years, and when I've been smart, I've paid attention. Beauty-wise, one of the best things she's done for me — aside from sharing her genes, of course — is keeping me out of the sun. When I was a girl, she encouraged me to climb trees, swim, ride my bike, and do all of the things little kids do. But she hardly ever let me go outside without wearing sunblock, even when I pouted because I couldn't tan.

Turns out that Mom knew best, since we now know that wearing sunblock prevents skin cancer and signs of aging. So when people say I look younger than my age, I credit my mom. So in honor of Mother's Day, what's the best beauty advice your mom shared with you?
