Aquaphore under your eyes reduces puffiness.

Well, it works in the sense that it leaves a layer of grease on your eyelashes and technically that will make them thicker. But it won't really affect the actual thickness of the eyelash. We recently wrote about whether vaseline will make your eyelashes thicker.

Green tea is amazing for your health, prevents cancer and speeds up your metabolism.

Yoga helps people grow tall, improve flexibility as you are stretching muscle!

hi, how does yoga make you grow taller?
i thought height was determined by hormones, not activity level.

While it's a great idea to practice yoga (it has many benefits), unfortunately making you taller is not one of them. You can't relax your muscles to height.

Yoga doesn't actually make people taller. It just improves the posture so that you think you're taller, but you're really not.

I take a multivitamin (like Women's One-a-Day), go to the dentist regularly, get facials once a season (whenever possible), get regular trims, and drink a ton of water. Because of these extra steps I have to use very little makeup, have really healthy teeth, hair, etc.
Sticking to healthy basics makes it so much easier in the long run because you'll find you spend less time on your makeup and hair (which makes me feel a whole lot better about myself). Laughter is pretty important too---it is my personal belief that the fun I have with my friends is keeping my skin clear!

Cold water rinse at the end of the shower blasted on the hair, flattens the cuticle and leaves it easier to brush (detangles) and shiny smooth hair coming your way!

I tried that cold water thing and I found that it did nothing for my hair. So, no more freezing for me
It might just me be, though.

I used to do that too, but have read numerous times that it doesn't do anything. I, personally, never noticed a difference.
