By the time a person has achieved years adequate for choosing a direction, the die is cast and the moment has long since passed which determined the future.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Coloring Your Hair

Don't wash your hair immediately before applying color. Your hair needs that natural oil to protect your scalp from the dye, and it also helps the hair shaft absorb the color more easily.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Help for Sensitive Gums

If your gums are very sensitive, rub a very small amount of aloe vera gel on, and let it sit for a few minutes before washing it off. Aloe vera strengthens gums, and it's especially good to use before using any bleaches or other whiteners on your teeth.

All sorrows can be borne if you put them into a story or tell a story about them.

The best way to win an argument is to begin by being right.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Applying Foundation

Having trouble with your foundation? You might not be spreading it out enough. When you dot it on your face, do so in as many places as possible -- not just four or five. If at all possible, use a cosmetic brush instead of your fingers -- this spreads out the foundation even more, and you'll end up using less.

Health and Beauty Tip -- The Perfect Lipstick

Have a color you like, but it's a little too bright? Add a tiny bit of concealer, either before or while you apply the lipstick. This will tone it down a bit, and it's much more complementary to the rest of your makeup.

Women / Women's Quote /

The most exhausting thing in life is being insincere.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Eyebrow Care

If you're not in the habit of plucking your eyebrows, be sure to give them extra attention. Use a clean toothbrush to brush eyebrows and keep them looking neat. Even if you do pluck your eyebrows, it's a good idea to do this; the little bit of extra effort can really improve your overall appearance!

Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Lock in Moisture

Health and Beauty Tip -- De-Tangle Your Hair

If you wake up with a "rat's nest," try switching to a silk pillowcase. This keeps your hair from staying in one place all night and tangling up.

Women / Women's Quote /

Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Moisturize!

Even if you have oily skin, you need to remember to moisturize! If your skin is too dry, your pores will open up, which can not only look like blackheads, but also increase the likelihood of getting them. Look for an oil-free moisturizer and use it regularly.

No one can avoid aging, but aging productively is something else.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Change Your Pillowcase

What does changing your pillowcase have to do with health and beauty? Everything! Think of everything you use in your hair and on your face ... where do you think it goes at the end of the day? Change your pillowcase often -- about every other night is good -- to prevent breakouts.

Aging is not "lost youth" but a new stage of opportunity and strength.
