Quote of the Day

Women / Women's Quote /

However gifted an individual is at the outset, if his or her talents cannot be developed because of his or her social condition, because of the surrounding circumstances, these talents will be still-born.

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.

I think that if you shake the tree, you ought to be around when the fruit falls to pick it up.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Stop Frizzy Hair

If you've got a problem with frizzy hair -- especially if your hair is naturally curly -- limit use of any heated styling tools (including blowdryers) to 2-3 times a week. Let your hair air-dry for the rest of the week.

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

Health and Beauty Tip -- Applying Product

Are you applying hair products correctly? Just spraying or applying it on top doesn't do much for your hair. Get the most out of your spray or gel by saturating your hair with the product, then combing through using a wide-toothed comb so every strand is coated.

Quote of the Day

Women / Women's Quote /

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

Health and Beauty Tip -- Smooth Flyaways

For small, fine flyaways, don't layer on even more hairspray. Take a baby toothbrush, spray it with hairspray, and brush the flyaway hair gently into place.

We are here on the planet only once, and might as well get a feel for the place.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Touching up Gray Strands

Rather than doing a full dye job to cover a few gray hairs, buy a mascara wand and basic hair dye that matches your natural color. Use the wand instead of the brush that comes with the dye, and touch up the gray more quickly and with less mess than doing all your hair.

Quote of the Day

Women / Women's Quote /

Very few people really see things unless they've had someone in early life who made them look at things. And name them too. But the looking is primary, the focus.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Using Body Scrub at Home

If you have a good body scrub you use at home, scrub towards your heart when you use it. Start at your feet and work up to your torso. When doing your arms, start at the fingertips and work up to your shoulders. Massage gently in circular motions to avoid scrubbing too hard.

Quote of the Day

Women / Women's Quote /

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.

Health and Beauty Tip -- 2-in-1 Shampoo

Is 2-in-1 shampoo really as good as they say? If you have normal, healthy hair, yes. But oily hair doesn't need extra conditioner, and dry hair needs even more conditioning than 2-in-1 shampoo offers. If you have dry hair, use regular separate shampoo and conditioner.

Quote of the Day

Women / Women's Quote /

The tapestry of history has no point at which you can cut it and leave the design intelligible.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Lather, Rinse, Repeat?

If you have short or thin hair, you don't really need a second wash. But if you have longer, thicker hair, you may want to follow the advice on the bottle.

Quote of the Day

Women / Women's Quote /

You have to leave room in life to dream.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Different Shampoo

Using the same kind of shampoo over and over can cause buildup as your hair "gets used to it." Switching shampoos on a regular basis is helpful, but easy to forget. To make it easier to stick with it, buy a large pump bottle and layer up to four different shampoos in equal amounts until the bottle is full.

Quote of the Day

Women / Women's Quote /

Bias has to be taught. If you hear your parents downgrading women or people of different backgrounds, why, you are going to do that.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Drying Nail Polish

Nail polish actually takes an hour to dry completely! Even though it feels dry to the touch several minutes after you finish, make sure to keep your hands clear of anything that could smudge or chip your polish for approximately one hour afterwards.
