Health and Beauty Tip -- Complementing Your Clothing

Contrary to popular belief, it's not necessary to match the color of your outfit exactly when choosing makeup. The first thing you should bear in mind is your skin tone -- what looks best on you? Once you know what colors work best for you, choose from those to complement what you're wearing.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Treat Yourself During Diets

Remember, it's not healthy to cut all fat from your diet. Your body still needs a little to maintain good health. One way to do this is to, on occasion, treat yourself to a little of your favorite food. Your body won't crave it as much, which will discourage binging later on. Just don't overdo it -- be responsible!

Health and Beauty Tip -- Eating Before Bed

Contrary to popular belief, snacks eaten before bed don't turn straight into fat! As long as the calorie intake fits into your diet plan, you can have something to eat before bed -- the calories will be burned off the next day, and even while you sleep. However, it's still better to eat earlier in the day, when your body needs the extra energy.

If your feet are hurting after a long day, try this: soak your feet in warm water mixed with bath salts for about ten minutes. Don't just dry your feet off afterwards, though -- wash them with soap and water, then apply some moisturizer.
