Health and Beauty Tip -- Taking Care of Longer Hair

If you're trying to grow your hair out, start using a wide-toothed comb on your hair while it's wet. Using brushes as your hair gets longer can lead to frizz and split ends.

Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Lemons for Your Face

Lemon juice, with its high acid level, can help remove age spots. Don't expect to see results right away -- it tends to take several weeks. If you prefer, you can try red onion instead.

Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Bronzing Powder

In a pinch, you can use bronzing powder as a natural-looking blush. It can also reduce the noticability of a double chin.

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goals.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Stylish Eyeshadow

Even if you're just doing simple makeup, ideally you should use three shades of eyeshadow. Use the darkest color on the lid, the lightest just below the brow bone, and fill the rest with the medium shade.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Don't Neglect Your Appearance

Even if you're staying home today and no one is going to see you, go through your regular hygiene routine. Skipping a day could be detrimental to your skin, hair, and teeth ... and keeping up will make you feel better, too.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Simple Blemish Safeguard

It's not surprising that just about anything near your face can affect how clear your skin is. Make sure to keep the mouthpiece of your phone clean, and don't chew on your writing utensils -- or, if you can't help it, wash those, too.

Bad habits are like chains that are too light to feel until they are too heavy to carry.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Clean Your Brushes

Dirty makeup brushes can build up with oil and bacteria with repeated use ... and if you're prone to acne, this can be especially disastrous! Clean your brushes and applicators at least once every two weeks. You'll be amazed how effective this is!

Health and Beauty Tip -- Storing Perfumes

Make sure all your perfumes and colognes are capped tightly and kept out of direct sunlight -- they don't have to be kept cold, but a cool, dark place helps it last longer. And don't save up several different perfumes for later. The scent will change over time. Use it when you get it!

Health and Beauty Tip -- Applying Perfume

Only use perfume on your skin, on your pulse points; anywhere else, it won't last (and won't be very detectable). Don't apply any behind your ears, and when you put it on your wrists, don't rub them together -- this will alter the scent.

When a man says money can do anything, that settles it: he hasn't got any.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Short Hair

If you have long hair and have decided to get it cut short, do so slowly over time. It's better for your hair, and not quite as shocking to your friends and family!
