Health and Beauty Tip -- Cover Roots Quickly

If you need to cover your roots and don't have time to dye, use eyeshadow! Spray on a little hairspray, then pat a little eyeshadow along your visible hairline. Gold works best with blonde, and brown works best for dark hair or for covering gray.

If any one faculty of our nature may be called more wonderful than the rest, I do think it is memory. There seems something more speakingly incomprehensible in the powers, the failures, the inequalities of memory, than in any other of our intelligences.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Look Thinner in Photos

The way you pose can affect how you look in pictures! To make yourself look thinner, turn a bit sideways with one foot in front of the other, put your shoulders back and your chest out. Not only does it look good in photos -- it's also good posture!

Health and Beauty Tip -- Not Used to Makeup?

If you're new to (or bad at) applying makeup, start with your lipstick. The color and brightness will be a good gauge as to how much you should make up your eyes and cheeks. Remember, never draw attention to more than one part of your face at a time!

Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Great Hair at 40

If you're over 40, try a shoulder-length, layered haircut. Short hair and blunt cuts aren't as flattering. No matter what cut you go with, don't overstyle. Less is more -- keep it natural-looking.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Sunscreen vs. Sunblock

What's the difference? Sunscreen absorbs UV rays and scatters them, while sunblock reflects them entirely. Sometimes sunscreens with SPF numbers of 15 or higher are advertised as sunblock -- but sunblock doesn't need an SPF number, as it reflects all rays.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Shower Gel

Believe it or not, those popular bath and shower gels can dry out your skin! You're better off using a simple moisturizing bar soap. If you still want to use body wash, check the ingredients and find something that doesn't contain sodium laurel sulfate -- that's what gives gels their negative effects.
