Time Tested Beauty Tips Information
Time Tested Beauty Tips was written by Sam Levenson.
Here is information gathered from the Internet.
Contrary to what some may think, Audrey Hepburn did not write this beautiful poem, Sam Levenson did.
Levenson wrote "Time Tested Beauty Tips" for his grandchild, and it just so happened to be one of Audrey's favorite poems.

Special thanks to Nicholas Darrell for author information.

I [suspected] that the Beauty Tips were not really from Audrey Hepburn.

Fortunately, a reader wrote in with the following news:
"The first 3 paragraphs of "Beauty Tips" were written, not by Audrey Hepburn, but by the late humorist Sam Levenson.
They can be found in his book, In One Era & Out the Other, on pages 176 and 190 of the hardcover edition."

It seems that Audrey Hepburn actually quoted Sam Levenson ...
and then Sam Levenson evidently got edited out in the editions being sent around the internet ...
