Challenges make you discover things about yourself that you never really knew. They're what make the instrument stretch -- what make you go beyond the norm.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Tinted Moisturizer

Mix a little of your favorite face powder with your favorite moisturizer. It will give your skin just a touch of color, and is far less expensive than commercial tinted moisturizers. If you want SPF protection, mix some powder with sunscreen.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Avoid Static Cling

To fight off static cling, keep a dryer sheet in your purse and rub it on the underside of your skirt or pantyhose.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Avoid Backaches

If you're prone to backaches, especially in the morning, try sleeping on your back with your knees raised on a pillow. If this is uncomfortable, sleep on your side with a pillow between your knees.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Avoid Chapped Lips

Put an old toothbrush to good use. Before you go to bed, rub your lips with a toothbrush to slough off dead skin. It's best to do this before bed -- no more waking up with dry, chapped lips!

Health and Beauty Tip -- Ice Blue Eyeshadow

Health and Beauty Tip -- Ease Pain When Plucking

Many people say to put ice on your eyebrows before plucking ... but this actually tightens pores and makes plucking more painful. Do the opposite and put a warm washcloth on your forehead first to open pores. Use ice afterwards to soothe any pain.

If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.

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. If you simply don't have time, keep some cleansing wipes by your bed. A quick clean is better than none at all.

Every individual is capable of extraordinary things, but no one can accomplish anything by themselves.

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

You don't need to use two different kinds of hair product to get the style you want. Use the same hair cream on wet hair (to tame frizz) as you do on dry hair (to hold flyaways). If you prefer gel, apply to damp hair for hold, then again to dry hair for shine.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Quick Hair-Drying

You can cut up to 15 minutes off your morning preparation time by trying this technique: with your dryer set on low, turn your head upside down and dry while using your fingers to style. Spend most of the time on the nape of your neck -- that's the area that takes the longest to dry. The outer layers of your hair will air-dry much more quickly.
