As part of Estée Lauder's Drops of Advice campaign, they've asked us to find out about the best pearls of beauty wisdom you've ever received - what were they and who were they from? What wonders has the advice done for your skin/hair/nails/whatever?! If you had to give a younger version of yourself some beauty advice, what would it be? It could be something like 'get more sleep'(!) or something more elaborate involving slapping the contents of your kitchen cupboard on your face in a homemade face pack?! Either way, please do share!
Everyone who adds a comment to this thread will be entered into a prize draw to win 1 of 15 bottles of Advanced Night Repair (30ml, RRP £41). That's a lot of prizes up for grabs! Please note that you have to be aged 18+ years to take part in the prize draw.
Mumsnet is promoting this sponsored discussion thread on behalf of Estée Lauder. The thread will be open until Friday 27th April, when we will close it, do the prize draw and notify the winners on that day. The winners' details will then be sent to Estée Lauder so the prizes can be sent out. Please only add your comments if you're happy for us to pass on your details to Estée Lauder in the event that you win the prize draw. We will only pass on the prize winners' details, and these will only be used for the purposes of sending out the prizes.
Thanks and good luck with the prize draw MNHQ
PS If you don't win this one then the folks at Estée Lauder are also running a 'Drops of Advice' competition on www.esteelauder.co.uk/dropsofadvice/index.tmpl where you have an additional chance to win a product and a night in a 5* hotel for two.

Both of my grandmothers lived well into their 90's, neither looked anything like their age. They both told me that I must cleanse, tone and moisturise twice a day everyday, use sun cream and always clean my teeth..
My father's mother bought me estee Lauder cleansers etc when I was 18 and I worked my way through college working on an Estee Lauder department store concession giving out her advise on how to stay looking lovely!
I've not always followed their advice but I have a horrible birthday coming up and thankfully I don't yet look too much like it(tho the hair dye has something to do with it!)
I am a nurse, so I wash my hands numerous times during the day, often with quite harsh hand scrub. I keep a small tube of moisturiser in my pocket and apply often. I also moisturise them with a richer cream type several nights a week and wear cotton gloves, usually do my feet at the same time and put on socks- I hate the look of cracked heels in sandles during the summer, so this stops this from happening!
