    Great ideas, even for those of us who aren’t moms. I use the cold water trick a lot and always try to drink 3 liters of water a day. Happy TT

    Lipstick, I just can’t find something that looks natural. Another new routine for me is too brush on some mineral powder, I like how it evens out the color and it’s quick. Great ideas, now I want to go up and put a mask on my face.

    You mean there are women older than high school girls who wear PJ’s around town?

    @Karen: Thank you!

    @Jennymcb: Mineral powder is a great idea; it’s so good for your skin. Lol about the mask! As for the lipstick, if you’re having a hard time with the color, try switching to a lipgloss with a lot of shine but only a hint of color.

    @Chris: True – these tips are great for non-moms and even tired college students as well! It’s great to have a daily goal for water consumption, because then it’s easier to measure how you’re doing.

    @Alice: *laughing* Yes, it’s TRUE! I see it a lot at school while dropping off my daughter and even in the grocery store.

    @Diana: Grats on the grandma stage! We can all take a few tips from you :)

    Thanks for this article! I agree 100% about wearing clothes that fit. When I take the time to take care of myself well, I feel a lot better about myself, I manage the household better and even work better. The positive energy just flows with proper self-care.

    The are excellent Tips! These are great for any woman or man for that matter to perk up and improve their appearance! For a more natural look Mineral Make-up and Neutral shades of lipstick or lipgloss are the way to go! Thanks for posting, it is important to also always wear a moisturizer with SPF during the Day, even on cloudy days.

    I searched for this after my husband informed me that I have rapidly changed / aged in a little as 3 years. :( Granted, I have had two children in that timeframe and only get 4-5 hours of sleep per night. I am desperate to try to get back my youthful look. Any suggestions for de-puffing the under eye area? Cold water just doesn’t cut it. Also, what concealers work without getting caked up in the fine lines under the eye? Any brand recommendations?
