Happy Mother's Day!
I was recently asked by Olay "What advice did you learn from Mom that makes her your beauty by example?". My answer was featured in the May issue of ELLE magazine!
Declare Mom your beauty by example by going to facebook.com/olay to join in with the Olay feature yourself.
My mom did influence my beauty routine by teaching me that sleep is very important; sunscreen, of course, needs to be used everyday; and that by sticking to a great skin care routine will keep your skin glowing.
Did you mother influence your beauty routine? What did she teach you? Leave me an answer in the comments for your chance to win the ultimate Beautiful Makeup Search Beauty Box - my gift to one lucky reader for Mother's Day.
