(Family Features) As many busy women know, a daily beauty regimen requires effort and time, but it also has a significant payoff. Keeping your outward appearance healthy and youthful inspires confidence — a glow everyone around you can see.

With convenience and ease in mind, here are a few tips that will keep you looking beautiful this season, without all the fuss or having to break the bank: 

Poor diet, sun exposure and smoking are just a few of the factors that can lead to the fine lines and wrinkles many women work hard to prevent. While everyone would love a quick fix to erase years of skin abuse, there are some tricks to slow down the process. 

Glowing, Vibrant Skin

Covering your skin from the sun’s harmful rays and keeping its damaging ultraviolet rays at bay helps ward off premature aging and helps to preserve the skin. Whether it’s cloudy or sunny, your best defense is to apply sun screen that contains an SPF of 30 or higher. You can further decrease your exposure by use of wide brim hats, baseball caps and other skin-covering clothing. Invest in a quality night cream that works deeply to restore the skin’s appearance as you sleep. Some products offer multiple benefits that firm, improve elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. 

The Perfect Pout

Like any other part of your skin, lips can become dry and flaky, particularly when exposed to harsh weather conditions or extreme settings. Give them proper nourishment and care to keep them smooth, supple and free of cracks and irritation. To exfoliate rough patches and remove dead skin, use natural ingredients right from your kitchen. Simply place a small dab of honey and sugar on your lips and gently rub them together. This procedure is best before bed time and followed with a thick coating of lip balm. This will penetrate and renew as you sleep and you’ll wake up to plump, smooth and beautiful lips. To maintain lip moisture, invest in a quality lip balm, especially those that pull double-duty and also offer sun protection. 

Healthy, Strong Nails

Used throughout the day for arduous tasks, nails experience a great deal of wear and tear and are often easy to neglect.

Give nails the attention they deserve with a fun spring hue, like mint green or vibrant yellow. When it’s time to refresh your nails or experiment with new colors, be sure to always have the proper tools on hand, such as Studio 35 Nail Polish Remover Liquid. 

Boost your beauty regimen by adding a few of these simple tips into your day, every day. Remember, when you feel good about yourself the whole world can see it. For thousands of great products to help enhance your beauty regimen, visit your local Walgreens or visit www.walgreens.com/beauty


Hot New Trends in Beauty

Beauty trendsetters are forecasting an increase in bold, expressive looks — especially around the eyes. Give your beauty a boost with these fashion-forward beauty ideas: 

Go Ahead and Glow

This season, the best skin coverage products provide a natural, fresh glow. To give your skin a gentle, sun-kissed vibe, try Rimmel Natural Bronzer, which uses natural minerals for a tanned look any time of the year. Make sure your beauty bag is stocked with the essentials needed for proper application, like the Walgreens Studio 35 Mineral Makeup Brush Set, to help you apply like a pro. 

An Orange Pout

Give your lips a citrusy glow with the many shades of orange that are sweeping the runways. To add the juicy allure of orange to your lips, try Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in Rendezvous or Matte Lip Balm in Audacious. 


Get the Blues

Dramatic eyes are all the rage with vivid tones of brilliant blue, such as CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Sapphire Flare. 


The Perfect Cat Eye

With 60s mod inspiration, boldly-lined lids are gracing the covers of fashion magazines worldwide. Choose a dark gray or black for the best statement, such as the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Liquid Eyeliner in Black.

Lashes Make a Big Statement

Complete your extreme eye look with the new lash plumping innovations in mascara. Try L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Waterproof Mascara in Black for gorgeous results.
