The term beauty secrets may refer to advice and tips that are practiced by many, often believed to enhance a person's natural beauty or simplify a beauty routine. In many cases, cosmetologists and glamorous models offer advice to ordinary people who wish to learn the secrets of the trade. Although professional beauty consultants often share pointers and guidelines for maintaining an attractive appearance, ordinary people may have beauty secrets of their own that they enjoy passing on to others. Most beauty secrets are learned through trial and error and by experience.

Many books and publications have been written related to beauty secrets. Basically, these publications pertain to improving one's appearance. The authors of these books are typically well known, and range from movie actresses to politicians. Licensed beauticians also have written how-to guidelines which offer advice on beauty.

Beauty secrets usually bring to mind tips about make up and hair. Make up, which may include foundation, blush, lip stick, or concealer may be used in a variety of ways to enhance a woman's natural beauty or conceal imperfections. Those who offer beauty secrets generally include tips on which cosmetics work best with a particular skin type, or which shampoos to use for all hair types.

It is fairly common to find beauty secrets and tips online. Many websites and informative Internet articles are written to provide advice to women of all ages. Advice on how to erase wrinkles and look younger, or how to wear make up can be found by searching the Internet. It's also common to find articles that are dedicated to sharing beauty tips for teenage girls. Some articles focus on beauty secrets for women over the age of 60.

Magazines that are written for women often include beauty tips in every edition. Some include full-length articles, while others offer a paragraph or two on a particular topic. Interviews with celebrities who offer beauty advice may also be found in magazines.

Beauty secrets may also include recipes for making homemade concoctions, such as facial cleansers and make up. Many of these homemade recipes are created using herbs and organic ingredients. Many women prefer to use natural ingredients for cosmetics and skin cleansers and often share tips for creating these.

For many women, finding advice on beauty from various sources helps the most. Natural beauty tips are often shared at spas and resorts. Ancient beauty tips that have been used throughout the years are valued by many. Beauty tips from around the world, sometimes referred to as international beauty tips, often include shared secrets used by different cultures.

I'd add to staying out of the sun: find a good moisturizer and use it faithfully. I also do a mild exfoliation two or three times a week, and it has done wonders for my skin. I have a friend who was a dedicated tanner in her teens and 20s and now she looks at least 10 years older than she actually is. So definitely stay out of the sun!

Most beauty secrets really are based on common sense. Some are a little more exotic than others, but the majority are good sense: drink a lot of water, stay out of the sun, cleanse and moisturize daily. It's the little, simple things that accumulate and lead to great-looking skin in the long term. I

One of the most obvious beauty "secrets" that never seems to occur to anyone is that staying out of the sun, or protecting the skin from the sun, is one of the best things you can do to keep your skin in good shape.

Not only do you reduce your chance of getting skin cancer, staying out of the sun keeps the skin looking younger, longer. No one believes me when I tell them my age. Not because I am a great beauty, but because my skin looks good. I've stayed out of the sun and I am reaping the benefits in middle age by not looking middle aged.
