Don't forget to check back daily to answer a new question so you can continue to personalize your beauty experience.

Q: How does the Beauty Book learn about me and my preferences?
A: When you initially signed up, we asked you four questions to help figure out what kind of things you'd be interested in.

A: Each day when you come back to your Beauty Book, you'll see a list of recommended articles waiting for you in the left column of the "Articles" tab. You can save them by clicking on the heart. If you decide that you no longer want to have an article saved to your profile, simply click the "X" to delete it.
Q: If I see something on RealBeauty.com, can I save it to my Beauty Book so I can come back and look at it later?
A: Absolutely! You "clip" articles and any products you might like to try by simply clicking on the blue heart you'll find on the upper left-hand corner of the page that will bring them straight to your Beauty Book, and you'll find them in either the "Articles" or "Shopping" tab.
You can also save images to your Beauty Book the same way as you would an article. Click on the blue heart in the upper left-hand corner of the image and you'll see it saved in your "Photos" tab.
Q: I love the horoscope feature but don't know how to get my birthday associated with my Beauty Book.
