There are many ways to turn off a woman, but there are few as good as a man who wears aftershave like a chemical factory on a meltdown. Some men do not realise when they are wilting flowers as they walk past because they have burnt any smell receptors in their nose with regular applications of their favorite paint stripper. Well things are not as bad as that any more but, men of a certain type are known for being unable to draw the line at wearing enough aftershave to impress. Instead, some men (I'm told) like to drown themselves in aftershave, ‘just in case it wears off’. To all fellow men with good intentions – no need! Read on, don’t just follow your nose. Read more
People who spend a lot of time grooming themselves and making sure they look their best are often called vain or big headed and it is largely thought of as a bad thing to be ‘self-involved' in this manner.
However while being vain is certainly not a good thing, we shouldn't treat taking care of your appearance as though that is a bad thing in itself. Actually, taking the effort to ensure you look your best, and caring about how others see you, is not only thoughtful and kind Read more
My relationship with my booty and thighs is a tumultuous one. Ladies, I know I'm not alone in this. Some of us were doomed from childhood with the kind of body shape that is unforgiving on our bottom halves. While it's not going to be easy, it's time to start showing some love for our thunder thighs – if not for us, then for our daughters and other young girls in our lives. Why? Because we're passing down the “I can't wear shorts” mentality to girls of younger and younger ages.
When I was a kid, I was overweight. Not obese, but overweight. When I hit about 5th grade, I decided that my legs were too fat and too white to wear shorts. My school did not have air conditioning, and I would wear jeans on even the hottest days. Talk about miserable. When my classmates and friends would ask me, “hey, why aren't you wearing shorts?” I would reply with “I just don't like them.” Fifth graders shouldn't be ashamed of their legs. Read more
More than fifty percent of men and women across the United States experience hair loss at some time in their lives. Hair loss, also medically referred to as alopecia, can be caused by a number of different factors. A common cause of hair loss in women is hormonal fluctuations, such as those that occur during pregnancy and menopause.
Many women also experience hair loss as a result of a malfunctioning thyroid gland. In male pattern baldness, testosterone and its counterpart dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is responsible for attacking and destroying the hair follicle. Other non-hormonal causes include prescription drugs such as birth control pills, antidepressant medications, as well as various over-the-counter drugs. Additionally, allergic reactions to chemicals found in hair products can result in hair loss. Read more

The word laser conjures up all kinds of imagery; scenes from Mission Impossible, weaponry from Star Wars, and a favorite scene of mine from Goldfinger where James is about to get sliced in half come to mind. The vast majority of us don’t use lasers in our normal daily life, and the thought of any kind of laser treatment can seem like a sci-fi fantasy more than a treatment option. However, when it comes to permanent hair removal, laser is an option that can’t be ignored. To put your mind at ease, the lasers used for hair removal are quite different from the one that was used to (almost) split 007 into two pieces. Hair removal lasers are safe when used correctly, and extremely effective at getting rid of unwanted hair on the face, armpits, back, legs and around the bikini line. Read more
