Experience suggests it doesn't matter so much how you got here, as what you do after you arrive.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Holiday Makeup

The holidays are special, so forget about matte eyeshadow when you go out! Younger women can experiment with shadows with frost, and mature women will look great going for shadows with a satiny finish. Avoid glitter, though ... that's a little too much!

May your walls know joy; May every room hold laughter and every window open to great possibility.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Deep Conditioning

To help your conditioner do its job, wrap a hot towel around conditioned hair for a few minutes before washing it out. The heat gives a deep conditioning effect that you might not get otherwise.

[Long hair] is considered bohemian, which may be why I grew it, but I keep it long because I love the way it feels, part cloak, part fan, part mane, part security blanket.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Extra Sunscreen

If you're going out in the sun, don't forget to cover your scalp! Wearing a hat is the obvious solution, but you can also use sunscreen. Find a non-greasy, spray-on formula; lotions and creams will make your hair oily.

Love is an exploding cigar we willingly smoke.

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.

If only we'd stop trying to be happy we'd have a pretty good time.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Hot Water

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.

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!

The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
