Health and Beauty Tip -- Keep Hair from Breaking

Never use a rubber band as a tie-back -- it can break or split hair. Instead, keep fabric-covered elastic bands or scrunchies handy. Brushing too hard when it's wet can also break hair, so towel-dry it lightly first, then use a wide-toothed comb to detangle before pulling out the brush.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Avoid Water-Damaged Nails

Health and Beauty Tip -- Eyebrows

Your eyebrows add strength and definition to your face -- so make sure to look after them! Use slant-edge tweezers when plucking, and work in the direction of the growth.
