The Benefits of Baths

The Benefits of Baths
By Richard Pagoda 

We all know the major reason to take a bath is to get clean, right? But if all you do is jump in the bath to get clean and then get out again, you could just take a shower instead. A bath can be so much more than just a way to get the dirt off. Bathing, if done correctly, can be a form of therapy – physical, emotional and even spiritual. Listed below are some ways you can take your bath experience to the next level.  “I think best in a hot bath, with my head tilted back and my feet up high.” -  Elizabeth Jane Howard, Mr. Wrong Adding to the bath - See more at:

MY REVIEW: SelpHbalance pH strips

Product Description Low Energy? Overweight? Poor Digestion? It could be your acid level

When your body's pH is out of whack it can contribute to a wealth of physical woes. In fact, some studies point to pH as a large factor in illnesses such as: 
--Nerve and joint pain 
--Body stiffness 
--Chronic pain and fatigue
In simple terms your pH is the measurement of your body's electrical balance which helps to regulate many normal bodily functions. If your pH is irregular it's difficult for enzymes in your body to function properly. And that can lead to tiredness, sluggishness, and even chronic illness. The fastest, most accurate way to stay on top of your pH is by using pH test strips.

10 Beauty Myths to Stop Believing Immediately

Graphic design: Alle Connell There’s a lot of beauty advice out there; not all of it is good. In fact, some of it is outright BS—but that doesn’t stop these totally false beauty myths from getting lodged in our minds like thorns. Here are 10 beauty myths that you need to stop believing right now. “Only use your ring finger to apply eye cream!”
The theory behind this BS beauty advice is that, since the ring finger is the weakest finger on your hand, you apply less pressure with it, which leads to a more gentle eye cream application. This is untrue from start to finish. For one thing, studies have conclusively shown that it’s the little finger that is the weakest digit. For another, it doesn’t matter how weak the finger is when it comes to the under-eye area—it’s how you use it. You should always gently pat eye cream in to apply, never rub—and whichever finger you’re most comfortable using will do that job absolutely perfectly. “If you pluck grey hairs, more will grow back.”
Untrue. Hair…
