If you’re a busy mom, you know that finding time for yourself or investing in beauty hacks like permanent makeup from Bowler Esthetics can be tough. But making time for a little self-care is important! Here are some easy beauty tips that will help you feel your best.


Get enough sleep – at least eight hours per night – to avoid dark circles under your eyes

Not getting enough sleep can be detrimental to your well-being and lead to dark circles forming around your eyes. A lack of quality sleep can have a negative effect on both mental and physical health. Sleep deprivation is linked with a wide range of short and long-term problems, such as mood swings, reduced concentration, stress, and chronic fatigue. In contrast, getting sufficient restful sleep will leave you feeling energized, and productive and help ward off any potential eye bags or other facial blemishes. So, it is recommended that you aim for at least eight hours per night to ensure that your body can recharge and feel refreshed the next day.

Use a hydrating face mask once or twice a week to give your skin a boost

Taking time to treat your skin is essential, and face masks are a great way to do just that. Because our skin can quickly become dry and dull-looking, using a hydrating face mask once or twice per week will help keep it looking fresh, hydrated, and vibrant. In addition to feeling refreshed, you will notice an increased glow in your complexion – something that we all need every so often! Whether you opt for a ready-made product from the store or prefer creating your own at home with ingredients like honey and avocado, adding this weekly step into your skincare routine will make all the difference for your complexion.

Invest in a good quality concealer and foundation to even out your complexion

Achieving an even complexion with a natural-looking finish can be done in two easy steps – investing in a good quality concealer and foundation. Concealers are great at camouflaging any problem areas, such as dark under-eye circles, age spots, or pimples, while foundations can help blend them into the rest of your complexion. Whether you prefer a liquid or powder formulation, there is something out there to meet your needs and get you one step closer to flawless-looking skin. With all these benefits, it’s certainly worth considering investing in a quality concealer and foundation to even out your complexion!

The key to tackling dark circles under your eyes is taking the time for self-care. Taking note of the above tips will prevent or even reduce the appearance of dark circles. Keep in mind good quality products that suit your skin type and be sure to get at least eight hours of sleep each night. Lastly, don’t forget to have patience – no matter what beauty products you use, it may take some time for your skin to heal depending on the cases of dark circles under your eyes. More importantly, taking care of yourself and getting enough rest are integral for a successful journey toward a brighter and healthier complexion.


Barbara Cartland wrote 728 books during her career, including a guide to beauty.

The late novelist even passed on the tip to fans.

The newly discovered beauty tips were part of a cache of letters collected from Barbara Cartland’s fan Sue Barker’s Cheshire home by her second cousin, Nada McArdle.


On beauty:

“If you give the other person your complete attention when they are speaking to you, they will invariably remember you as beautiful.”

“Keep your face above all, even before your body.”

On skincare:

“Citrus fruit juices and coffee are death to the complexion.

Put honey on your spots and by morning you will find that they have disappeared.”

Use the yoke of an egg mixed with almond oil as a facemask. Allow to dry and wash off with rose water.

Wash your face with cold water first thing in the morning.

On keeping trim:

“The two best exercises in the world are making love and dancing. If find yourself unable to practice these two options, try walking on tip toes around the house and kicking your legs like a can-can girl.”

“Do all you can to keep a waist. It is natural for many women to put on weight as they age, but if you can keep a small waist it gives one an appearance of being slim and elegant.

“Keep your feet in good order; this makes all the difference to the way you walk – your walk can often give away your age.

On alcohol:

“If you drink at a party, take four Brewers Yeast tablets before going to bed as alcohol destroys Vitamin B in the body.”

“The safest alcohol choices are good brandy and white wine.”

Now Cassandra Bankson, who is studying to be a nurse, has uploaded other people beauty tips videos and writes her own blog. Her dream is to create her own skin care range.

She said the response to her first video was overwhelming.

“It was a real eye opener,” Cassandra Bankson told Good Morning America.

“It [acne] is such epidemic for adults as well as teens.”

At the start of her video, which was shot in her parent’s lounge, Cassandra Bankson is seen wearing full make-up and looking picture-perfect.

The teen, a horse-back riding and hiking fan, returns to the camera in a bathrobe at her ‘most insecure,’ with bare skin and looking a very different person.

“I feel really disgusting, this is probably the most nerve-wracking thing I could possibly do because it is my biggest insecurity… But this is my face.”

I mean it’s still all over my chest, all over my back, it’s everywhere and you can see it goes down my neck, it’s all to the side, it even got on my ear. It’s gotten a lot better but it’s still really, really bad. It’s my biggest insecurity.”

It is a far cry from the modelling portfolio shots that can be seen on her YouTube channel, where the striking brunette lounges on car bonnets, takes to the catwalk and poses in cut-out swimsuits with flawless skin.
