Some people are very concious about their body and face, and some are not. I am the one who don't care much about how to take care of her body and face. Specially in winter I feel very lazy to do take special care of my face. And also I don't spend much money on it. What about you? How much caring you are for your body and face, and how many time and monye you spend for your beauty care?

My face and skin are suffering this winter. I do not provide consistent care. At least not on the outside. I also believe you care for your skin from the inside out, by eating well and staying hydrated.

I spend alot of money on my face. I use Estee Lauder products that are for anti aging. I find that they work well on my skin. As long as I can afford it, I will never use anything but estee lauder on my face.

Try doing a search on the Internet .. there are many web sites that sell Estee Lauder at rock bottom prices .. usually they are only cheap because they come without boxes .. or have been bought up as job lots from places closing down .. the actual product inside is 100% as good as any from a shop .. I buy the products I use regularly at a whopping 95% LESS than shop price .. the bargains are there if you just look for them !

I believe in taking good care of my face and body from now itself so I won't have problems when I grow old. I have a daily face regimen which I follow no matter what. I do the basic cleanse, tone and moisturize. I make sure I apply moisturizer all over my body as soon as I'm out of the shower. That's when the pores are open and there is maximum absorption into the skin. Before I came to the US I took up a personal grooming class, where I learnt how to do manicure, pedicure, facial, waxing and other related things. So I do all this to myself on a regular basis. I go to the salon only for a haircut, so you guessed it, I save a hell lot of money..lol!

Well, i don't care much about face/body to be honest im very lazy too, i prefer just using the fastest way lol =p.. well sometimes it's good to look good of course and i do that when i feel that i need to go beautiful to an party or something like that... But daily i prefer just being on my way and just using some efforts of myself to take care of my hair so i dont look sooooo lazy but i don't really care too much... Hmm about money i spent on it.. only haircut at each 2/3 months haha :)

WEll sweet lady I wish I could meet a few more women like yourself. I haven't cut my hair in a few months, and I am actually trying to grow out dreads. Don't really care what people think and I am certainly not trying to spend a lot of money on my hair or anythign like that. no reason to be vien, i would rather just be myself.

I take care of my face and body all year long. I get pretty dry and itchy skin in the winter months so..I have no choice but to moisturize daily. I also try to take care of my face and put cream on it as well. It is better to moisturize then not....

Am practical too. I wash with soap and water. The money I spend is for fragrance deordorant and perfume oils. With long hair it is wash and wear for me too. Beauty routines and such are not for me. Ivory soap and water and that is all.

Now this is a very frank answer that, till 20 years of age, I had never been conscious and careful about my looks, skincare, bodycare in winter, and all that stuff. I was not lazy about anything, but never felt the urge to do anything with my looks. I even didn't use a proper cream or lotion or powder while going out. But after 20 years of age, I had a few friends, who showed me how better it feels when I get groomed, and get serious about skincare and all that. Since then I changed my ways a little, and started giving myself atleast one hour a week for personal attention and care.

i do take care of myself a lot because i think it makes me look better when i do. i know this is vain, but my appearance matters a lot to me. i'd love to wake up and feel beautiful but that's not going to happen anytime soon. i do wash my face, do my eyebrows, keep my nails looking decent, and wear makeup. i have a lot of hormone problems which have really taken a toll on my appearance lately, especially my face, so im trying really hard to fix those problems. i actually had a facial done earlier this week and im going to the spa again for a consultation for permanent hair removal and maybe also some kind of treatment for pigmentation problems. i think i take more care of my face than my body though, but i'd like to change that. im really set on losing weight and getting healthy, so hopefully ill stay motivated to do that.

I do take a great deal of care, and interest in my general health, and appearance. I cleanse, tone, and moisturise my face every day, and I regularly scrub, and exfoliate my body. Having said that, I don't spend a huge amount of money on this. I tend to use natural remedies, like egg yolk to condition my hair, and almod to exfoliate, but I am pretty hot on taking care of myself. After all we only have one life, and one body - why not take care of it?!

I have fits and starts of 'doing a proper' beauty routine .. basically I am just too forgetful most days .. But I do try and use good products .. I only buy from super discounted web sites and can get better quality products for the same money as supermarket cheapies .. I have some allergies to petrochemicals so need to try and avoid more of the 'mass produced' products anyway .. as I have sensitive skin I find the 'nicer' products much kinder and definitely fidn they work MUCH better too .. Ironically although I buy the 'dearer' brands thay actually work out to be a LOT cheaper as you need far less of the product to do a goo job .. One thing I do regularly is skin brushing and exfoliation .. my skin seems to grow too fast .. so I must exfoliate to stop little 'pimples' cropping up ... I wish (ohhh how I wish) .. I had good skin and a good figure .. but I don't, never have had and never likely to have .. but at least I look 'slightly' younger than I really am .. whether it's a less stressful lifestyle or the decent skin products I buy is debatable .. but I know if I don't use good products my skin goes very dry and blotchy and itches madly .. When I feel really 'down' .. I get all the products out and gives myself a 'home spa' treatment ... I do the LOT ... boy do I feel good afterwards .. I know I should do it more often .. but it's such a lot of faffing around heheh !!

i really dont care about keep good care of my face and body. I feel that keeping the body clean is the best way to make your face and body fresh. I would apply some moisturiser in the winter for preventing dryness that it and a little talc on the face. Nothing special

As a man I only take care of my body by eating healthy food and exercising regularly, I guess men are lucky that they don't have to worry very much about their faces :)
