Health and Beauty Tip -- Don't Leave Makeup On

After a long day, you may not want to go to the trouble of removing all your makeup. If you're consistently leaving it on at bedtime, though, you'll be more prone to breakouts and clogged pores.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Make the Most of Hair Products
