    beauty secrets

    OK...I know this is vain...but, hey I am over 40 now and I need help. I had a rough day yesterday and I looked like I had a rough day. Do any of you have some good beauty secrets to use for those not so great days. I always find if I feel kind of fresh looking I don't feel as sick.

    For example, I always bring my own jammies to the hospital and I feel much better. I try to keep a simple hairstyle so if I don't have time to do it it does not look like garbage. So here is my list and please add if you like:

    Mary Kay under eye cream at night for dark circles FAB!! $10?
    Any intense moisturizers....Eucerin
    Mary Kay intense moisturizer....this one is about $30, ughh
    keeping a simple haircut
    I also have a little ponytail hair piece that matches my color for days that I just can't do my hair
    Carmex!!!
    nail color that drys fast

    If you all have any hair suggestions for getting all that antibiotic buildup out of hair or an easy style. Or any suggestions for face color on those low O2 days or gray days.

    I am also adding a link for some really good cheap beauty secrets on MSN that I like. <a target=_blank class=ftalternatingbarlinklarge href="http://lifestyle.msn.com/your-look/makeup-skin-care-hair/staticslideshowcosmo.aspx?cp-documentid=16639252&imageindex=12

    beauty secrets

    I'm pretty picky when I shop for clothes. I won't buy polyester and certain other materials that I just don't feel as well in. I wear a lot of knit tops in part because they look okay without being ironed. Everything has to be easy to take care of yet still pass dress code for my job at a large company. It doesn't have to be expensive to look good. I buy most of my clothes at Kmart. But paying attention to details of color, style and ease of care help make me look passable most of the time in spite of having little energy for fussing with my appearance.

    EDIT: I will recommend the book "David Kibbe's Metamorphosis" for anyone struggling to figure out what looks good on them.

    I also keep a simple (and very short) hairstyle. My hair is naturally curly and can be quite unruly if it is longer. Keeping it short helps keep it neat, in spite of itself, and I think I breathe better with shorter hair. I think long hair tends to pick up pollen and dust and the like. And it's just more work and I don't have the time and energy for it.
