Moms all over the world hold a special place in our hearts — no matter how easily they can make us roll our eyes or instantly regret telling a joke. Moms also know a thing or two about beauty regimens and have passed down timeless tips and tricks over the years to their beauty-obsessed children. Beauty Nine to Five scoured the internet for a full range of beauty tips from mothers around the world that actually work — just in time for Mother’s Day. Read on to learn more, you may even recognize a few!

1. Clinique

Nothing But Lipstick

An adage we can all attest to hearing our mothers repeat was, “you need to let your skin breathe”. This means no makeup except a bold lip colour. Debuting in the ‘70s to rave reviews, Clinique’s Black Honey Lipstick is a classic (and looks good on everyone)! Update this tip by using an undetectable BB cream to even your complexion and you’re good to go.

2. Kariderm

Shea Butter from Head to Toe

Shea butter is cocoa butter’s upgraded cousin. Originating in Ghana and loaded with vitamin E, this powerhouse is known to heavily moisturize skin, improve tone and even contains a small amount of SPF. Warm shea butter in the palm of your hands before applying from head to toe for the supplest skin ever.

3. Conair

Movie Star Hair Rollers

Moms were definitely on to something with the Velcro hair rollers trend. We strongly recommend tweaking this beauty tip to hot rollers for style that lasts without the headache. Use jumbo-sized rollers for glamorous, bouncy curls that you just can’t get with a curling wand.

4. Turmeric

Golden Face Mask

Turmeric root is ground into a deep yellow, pungent powder and has hundreds of uses around the kitchen and now, in your beauty routine. Mix enough turmeric powder and whole milk (or water) to form a paste and apply all over your face. Stay still as you allow this mask to dry and we promise you’ll wake up to a brighter, even complexion. Warning: turmeric stains everything.

5. Neutrogena

Never Sleep With It On

Never, ever, go to sleep with makeup on. And we know that you’ve probably heard this line from all ends, but Moms have a special way of reiterating this major beauty faux pas. Apart from clogging pores, spreading bacteria and ruining pillowcases what other reasons do you need to wipe off your makeup before bed?

6. Paulas Choice

Invest in Anti-Aging Products

You’re never too young to start taking amazing care of your skin. Most of us have memories of our mom using one potion or another that promised eternal youth. In modern times, this simply calls for a product that packs a dose of retinol plus antioxidants and other skin building ingredients. Don’t forget to top it off with an SPF of 30 or more.

7. Korean Italy towels

Korean Italy Towels

Korean Italy towels have definitely earned a spot in the top five list of holy grail body exfoliators. These towels are known to literally (TMI warning) have strips of dead skin roll off of your body after use. First, allow your skin to soften up by soaking in a hot bath for 20+ minutes. Then, firmly press the cloth into the skin in repetitive motions. Rinse dead skin down the drain and be amazed.
