Timeless Beauty Secrets From Moms

As we learn from our moms how to walk, how to talk, tie the pony tale, tie our shoes, etc. But we’ve also picked up some timeless beauty secrets from them along the way.

Think about it, before we were old enough to read a fashion magazine or even buy our first lip gloss, we could still watch mom at her vanity doing her daily makeup routine. We’d marvel as this woman with her arsenal of beauty tools, each with its own mystical purpose, who somehow knew how to perfectly use each and every one. You could almost say “Moms are our first and last YouTube tutorials”.

“Use essence… it’s better than moisturizer or serum or oil.”

The only beauty advice my mom’s given me was to use essence no matter how tired or broke I am. Despite that, I don’t even have the faintest of fine line on my face. Thanks, Mom!

“Pond’s Cold Cream is everything.”

The scent of Pond’s Cold Cream is forever embedded in my memory. Also, the image of my mom lying on the bed with her skin as slick as glass. This woman never went a night without slathering on this beloved beauty staple—and all her life she’s always looked at least 10 years younger than her age. Even though she never seriously talked skin care with me when I was growing up, when I started experimenting with my own routine in my teens, naturally, I decided to try it for myself.

While the concept of an all-in-one cleanser, makeup remover, and moisturizer has always been genius, nowadays I could never bring myself to touch the stuff. The main ingredient is mineral oil, derived from petroleum, which I try to avoid whenever possible for the environment’s sake. Maybe I should be gifting mom a nice safflower oil cleanser for Mother’s Day, but old habits die hard. Anyway, the important lesson here: Always go to bed with clean skin, period. Love you (and your face), Mom!

“Avoid the sun at any and every cost.” Wear Dupatta.

My mom is very funny. She’s always been playful and marches to her own beat. It’s no wonder that she has absolutely no qualms about stepping outside on a sunny “Ambala” afternoon and pulling out an umbrella or wearing dupatta. For as long as I can remember, my mom has done anything and everything possible to shield herself from the sun. She’ll pull out a pair of gloves and use it to cover her arms. My mom carries a variety of hats in her tote, prepared for any sun-scorching event. She goes the extra mile by selecting an umbrella that coordinates with her outfit choice. As mortifying as it can be, she is onto something.
I may not be pulling out an umbrella anytime soon, but I will sunscreen. Okay Mom, you were right.

Always wash your face before bed, no matter how tired you are.”

When it comes to beauty, my mother has always said less is more. She has never been much into makeup and frankly, never really taught me much about it. Most of my skincare and beauty regimens I learned over the years from my friends. However, my mother did teach me one thing that I will always hold on to. ALWAYS wash your face — no matter how late you come home, how tired you are. Growing up, I had problematic skin, so making sure I washed away any dirt and buildup from the day was imperative to keeping my skin clear.

“Get pretty for YOU.”

Rather then spending time in front of mirror, my mom always suggest to eat healthy fruits and vegetables. Thanks to mom, I really got big results in doing so. She stopped giving me oily and junk food and started giving me dietry suppliments. Now, there is no pimple, no scar on my face. Apart from this, I have a slim body too.
