Shampoo every other day and check out products that can revitalize second-day hair.

Don't be afraid to try a new style. Go to a salon and stylist that offers consultations, listens to your needs and wants, asks questions about your lifestyle and how much time you want to spend on your hair, and then can create a style you love.

Lilly Stone and Natasha Shipley, Sooo Lilly Cosmetics:

Sort through your makeup, skin care and hair products regularly. Toss anything that's old or smells.

Get organized. Put makeup and cosmetics that you use daily in an acrylic organizer or get creative with bins, cups or plates. Home Depot and Lowe's sell canvas tool buckets with pockets that can hold all your lotions, potions and brushes. Store it under the sink and pull it out each morning.

Keep cosmetic brushes clean. Use either a brush cleaner or a gentle detergent, and lay brushes flat to dry.

Cleanse skin every night before bed, whether you wear makeup or not. Use a gel cleanser for oily skin and a lotion or cream for dry skin.

Exfoliate two to three times a week to remove dead skin cells and allow moisturizer to better penetrate for soft and smooth skin.

Use a moisturizer or foundation with an SPF 15 or higher during the day to protect skin from damaging rays of the sun.

At night, use a moisturizer with peptides, a good anti-aging ingredient.

Moisturize hands and neck, which are often neglected.

Treat eye area with special care. Skin is thinner there. Use a gentle eye makeup remover, and hydrate area with an eye cream.
