1. Clean up Your Nails

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Chipped polish, snaggy edges, and mangy cuticles β€” girl, let's start with your nails! This is one beauty tip everyone will notice, and it will make all the difference. And it only takes, literally, five minutes to take care of each one! Use an acetone-free nail polish remover and plenty of cotton balls to remove your chipped polish. Still have a few minutes left? Files your snaggy edges, then, if you're not in a hurry, soak your nails and gently push your cuticles back with an orange stick. Then apply lotion and enjoy your pretty hands.

2. Use a Pore Strip

This is one of my all-time favorite beauty tips,and it really only takes five minutes! Who doesn't have five minutes to devote to skin care? Apply a Biore or other pore strip, then wait five minutes (or however long the box says) and enjoy a cleaner, fresher face!

3. Moisturize!

Oh, girl. It only takes five minutes to treat and prevent winter-ashy skin, so take the time to moisturize! Apply lotion, liberally, to your hands, legs, face... anywhere your delicate skin needs extra hydration!

4. Tweeze or Wax Your Brows

Nothing makes you look LESS polished, and more like a beast, than bushy brows. Take five minutes to tweeze them, or visit your salon and have them waxed or threaded. Ah! Now we can see your beautiful eyes!

5. Hot Oil Your Hair

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Winter hair can be overly dry and frizzy, especially if you use a blow dryer or hot iron every day. Take five minutes to implement this beauty tip: hot oil (or deep condition) your hair!

6. Cuke Your Eyes

(Your reaction) Thank you!

In almost every spa ad I've ever seen, a woman relaxes with her hair in a wrap and cucumber slices on her eyes. Want to know why? Because those cuke slices really work, banishing dark circles and puffiness. Give it a try!

7. Trim Your Bangs

(Your reaction) Thank you!

I can't trim my own bangs (I have zero hand-eye coordination) but if you have a steady hand and a sloppy fringe, take five minutes to trim them. Now you can see again!

8. Exfoliate Your Lips

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This is an essential winter beauty tip,and it takes actually less than five minutes! Run a clean washcloth under the warm tap, then run it gently across your lips for a minute. Your lips will feel softer, tingly, and they'll be chap-free. Kissable!

9. The Eyes Have It!

There are a slew of new products on the market that will lengthen and darken your lashes. My favorite is by L'oreal, but there are lots of others, too. Take five minutes and apply one carefully to your upper lids, following the instructions on the bottle. Hooray for longer, thicker lashes!
