Smart Tips

Save Money

Did the cold weather do damage to your hands? I am addicted to hand cream, but sometimes my hands still feel dry or chapped. According to Scientists at Duke University in North Carolina, using a small dollop of Crisco shortening rubbed into your hands thoroughly will provide 4 times the moisture your skin needs. Crisco provides a super strong barrier that traps moisture.

Feeling Stressed?

Black tea to the rescue! When drinking black tea, your levels of the stress hormone cortisol drops by 47 percent in under one hour.

Unleash Hidden Stress

When you feel that you need to recharge to carry on, here’s a little exercise that will unblock your trapped energy.

Rest the fingertips of your right hand on your belly button and the fingertips of your left hand on the center of your forehead. Apply light pressure and hold for 30 seconds. Your main meridian or energy source, runs straight up the front of your body. Manipulating these acupressure points will recharge you.

The Scent Makes You Seem 6 Years Younger

According to a study at Chicago’s Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation, women who wore the scent of pink grapefruit were assumed to be 6 years younger than they actually are. This scent is said to recapture a youthful feeling.
