Beauty Secrets Revealed

THESE FEET WERE MADE FOR WALKIN’

Did you know that our feet has to bear our entire body's weight, hundred of times in proportion to it's size? Or an average human being loses almost a cup of liquid a day through their feet? Or that a baby’s foot is made up almost entirely of cartilage? They will harden as the feet grow.

Strange but true that our feet does wonderful service to us.

59. Keep a pumice stone handy so you can put it to work on those heels as you step out of the shower.

60. Use a few drops of essential oil in your next footbath!

61. Pamper your feet. Treat yourself to a pedicure!

62. Try a foot massage. It’s relaxing and rejuvenating. Try it on yourself or ask your partner and trade off. Everyone wins!

63. If your ankles and feet are swelling, it’s a sure sign you are holding fluids. Try to avoid sitting for long periods at a time and cut down on your salt intake.

64. Stilettos are beautiful and yes, they do make you look sexy, HOWEVER, you should avoid long walks while wearing them.

65. In fact, you should always wear sensible shoes. Ha! Fat chance, right? Seriously, what about a compromise? Wear sensible shoes when you are coming and/or going from work and keep the heels in a tote bag.

66. For extremely dry feet, lather on a layer of cocoa butter to each foot, slip your feet into plastic bags and pull on a pair of oversize socks. Leave on overnight while sleeping and when you awaken the next morning your feet will feel smooth, silky and soft.
67. Add milk to a footbath for softening the feet.

HOW TO AVOID BAD HAIR DAYS
Nothing destroy our morning as much as a bad hair day! Our internal engine seems not able to kickstart whenever we start off the day with a bad hair day and we seems to lose it. They say that a woman’s hair is her crowning glory. Even so, all women have those days when we wish we could cover every unwieldy strand!

68. Get a good hair cut! It all begins right here. Without a good hair cut, nothing else you do will give you the results you want.

69. In order to have a good hair cut, you need a great hair stylist and when you find one, keep him/her! Jumping around from stylist to stylist can be hazardous to your hair. The old adage about “getting what you pay for” is very true when it comes to something as important as your stylist. Yes, it’s possible to find a good stylist at the “fast hair” shops, but the cost to your hair while searching may be more than you care to spend.

Fast hair shops usually employ new, young stylists with little experience. They earn a minimal wage and do not have to invest in hair care products to use on their clients. Stylists that you find in upscale shops and salons are usually independent contractors leasing space in the salon. The salon provides the work station, utilities and in some cases a receptionist to service the stylists. These stylists are generally more experienced and have built a solid clientele. They purchase their own products used in servicing their clients either from the salon or other suppliers and set their own prices.

70. If you absolutely must trim your hair at home, do it right! Purchase a pair of professional hair cutting scissors and use them for nothing else. Not to cut out pumpkins for the kids at Halloween, not to trim a frayed edge off of a piece of clothing. Use them for cutting hair . . . period! Take care of them properly and they will last your for years to come.

71. Trimming your own hair isn’t as easy as it sounds. Try just evening up the hair that frames your face. Grasp a small section of dry hair (just a few strands at a time) and hold it gently. If you tug at it the hair stretches and you will end up cutting off more than you’d like. Try cutting beneath your fingers instead of on top of them. This will also help to prevent cutting off too much.

72. Keep your hair clean! There’s nothing worse than dirty, oily hair that hangs in clumps.

73. Use the correct shampoo for your hair type. Not all hair is created equal.

74. If you have oily hair, do not shampoo every day. As paradoxical as it seems, clean hair makes the problem worse because it allows the oil to seep into the glands making it much more difficult to deal with. Stay away from those “all in one” shampoos. Use a ph-balanced shampoo when you do wash your hair and scrub it well. You may need to change shampoos, so ask your stylist what he or she recommends. Another tip is to avoid oily foods as much as you can. It just contributes to the problem. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Whatever you do, stay away from products that are supposed to make your hair shine! Also do not use conditioner unless you apply it to the ends of the hair strands. Keep it away from the scalp!

75. Hair looking drab? Need a change? Try a few highlights. It can do wonders for brightening up your hair and face.

76. Wanna’ try some curls but don’t want the damage of a perm? Try a curling iron and/or hot rollers. Hot rollers will give you more control, but you won’t get those wispy, trailing curls. That you will have to do with the curling iron.

77. Do not try and curl freshly cleaned hair. Try and remember to shampoo the night before. Squeaky clean hair can sometimes give you difficulty with holding a curl.
78. Never use a “sticky” hair spray before curling your hair with a curling iron or hot rollers. You can cause damage.

79. If you are fortunate to have naturally curly hair, have your stylist cut it in layers to take advantage of the new cascading curly look.

80. If you are athletic, keep your lifestyle in mind when selecting a “do.”

81. If you are blonde or have gray hair do not use any coal tar shampoo product for dandruff as it may permanently stain your hair.

82. Have a problem with the dreaded “dandruff?” Here’s the “sure cure” and you’ll find it in your kitchen. Vinegar! Yep, pour vinegar into your hair, let it dry for a little while, then shampoo. Just keep repeating it daily until the dandruff disappears . . . and it will!
83. Have you ever almost fallen asleep in a stylist's chair because you felt sooo relaxed? Another good reason for visiting the salon!

84. Have dry hair? Use a hot oil treatment. Alberto V05 is a great over the counter solution for dry hair.

HOW IS YOUR SMILE?
Did you know . . . a knocked out tooth may be replanted if you act quickly? Don’t clean the tooth, just wrap it in a damp cloth and hustle off to the dentist. If you can get there within 30 minutes you’ve got a 90% chance of saving it.

85. If you wear braces, get extra calcium. Adjusting the position of teeth can leave small gaps in the jawbone. These need to be replaced with new bone. Take it as a supplement or eat plenty of green leafy vegetables.

86. Your smile is one of your best assets. Don’t ruin it with bad breath. Mouthwash does not kill the bacteria that create bad breath. Brush your tongue and gums and use floss often. If it still persists, consult your physician.

87. Do you wear full or partial dentures? First, ask your doctor if your denture contains any metal. If not, place your denture in a safe container, cover with water and microwave for about two minutes. This kills more bacteria than soaking in denture cleaner.

88. Are your teeth discolored? This condition will really detract from your overall appearance. Visit your dentist for a cleaning and ask for the whitening procedure. Or, try some of the new teeth whitening products you can use at home.
