Color me healthy

The natural color of your nails often reflects your health or potential health problems. Look for changes that include discoloration or thickening. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, these changes could indicate liver or kidney disease, heart and lung conditions, anemia or diabetes.

Crossed up about varicose veins

An old wives tale often attributes sitting with your legs crossed as a main cause of varicose veins, but there’s little to no evidence to support this claim. Increased blood pressure in veins due to pregnancy or obesity can contribute to the condition, but varicose veins are usually an inherited trait.

When it comes to hair care, less is more

Try to minimize the use of long-lasting or 24-hour-hold hair styling products. Combing or brushing after you apply the product can cause split ends and may lead to hair loss over a long period of time.

Brow brushers

Looking For something to help you brush your eyebrows? You don’t have to buy a special tool. Try a new toothbrush or a clean mascara wand.

Shiny locks

Apple cider vinegar can be used as a hair pick-me-up to help smooth and shine your locks. The vinegar aids in removing oil and dirt as well as helping with dandruff or grease buildup. Mix a small amount (no more than two tablespoons) into a glass of water, apply it to your hair and rinse well.

Feeling flushed?

  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Massage therapy
  • Deep breathing
