How All Beauty Lovers Should Spend Their Extra Daylight Savings Hour


Falling back doesn't mean you should sleep in! Take advantage of daylight savings time with these 10 beauty ideas.

1. Turn Your Bathroom Into a Spa Retreat!

Use your new-found hour to give your face and body a little more love. Indulge in these luxurious face masks, take an extra-long shower, and transform your bathroom into your very own spa retreat.

2. Take Care of Your Hands

Have you looked at your cuticles lately? Winter is coming, and cold weather will only worsen dead skin around the nail bed. Clean up the dry skin on your tips and toes,  and oil it down with our favorite cuticle care products.

3. Embrace the Outdoors

When is the last time you worked out? Use the hour to go for a run or a brisk walk and welcome fresh autumn air. Not into jogging? Check out how to make fitness fun.

4. DIY Everything

The same fruit you munch on in the morning serves double-duty on your face. Get crafty in the kitchen and mix up a facial treatment—we recommend this DIY honey cinnamon mask!

5. Try A New Look

Still afraid of fall's dark lip? Test-drive a deep stain at home before your show a daring new lip to the masses.

6. Pluck Away!

When's the last time you performed some brow maintenance? Whip out your tweezer tools and nix the stray facial hair.

7. Browse beauty—from your mobile device!

If you haven't heard already, the Beautylish iPhone app is pretty awesome. We want you to browse beauty inspiration wherever you are—even if it's for that extra hour in bed.

8. When In Doubt, Nail It

It's never too early for a nail art session. Pull out the glitter and polish and get to painting!

9. Jot Down Your Wishlist
