You may love your favorite perfume or cologne, but take co-workers and friends into account! Others may not share your taste, and some people are genuinely allergic to perfume -- it can bring on headaches and asthma attacks in some people. Use perfume sparingly. Not only will your friends thank you, but just about any scent is better when used in moderation.

Even if it isn't bright or overly sunny out, wear at least SPF 15 when you go out -- either sunscreen or foundation with sunscreen in it. UVA and UVB rays can still hit you, even on cloudy days.
Before you shave your legs, use an exfoliating scrub to soften the skin -- and remember to rinse it off first. Your legs will feel smoother, and your shave will last longer.
If you have problems with breakouts, check the ingredients in your makeup! If it contains lanolin or mineral oil, it may be clogging up your pores and causing blemishes. Consider switching to a water-based foundation.
There's a reason it's called "cold cream" ... to keep it fresh longer, store it in the refrigerator. This keeps it from going bad, and also feels nice and cool when you use it.
Use Epsom salts and your favorite fragrant oil to make homemade bath salts for yourself, or to give as a gift. Make sure to watch out for possible skin allergies depending on what kind of oil you use.
If you've been having breakouts recently, replace your morning coffee or tea with a slice of lemon in hot water.
