Have you ever noticed how Indian women have the most beautiful and shiniest hair? They use coconut oil. It’s great for the scalp and a scalp massage with coconut oil will promote blood circulation, hair growth plus a deep conditioning treatment for the hair. Use a tablespoon of coconut oil, heat it up and massage on your head. Leave on for 1 – 2 hours before washing off!
Set your portfolio down and let the agent look through it at his or her own pace. Don’t babble and give commentary as the agent looks through it. If they have a question, they will ask you. Often they are looking and thinking – so allow them their silence while they do their ‘job’. Let the photos speak for themselves. Don’t apologize for any photos; if they are bad, they shouldn’t be in your portfolio. Don’t worry if the agent doesn’t like some of the shots. They may feel the photos give you the wrong image. Once they have finished looking through your portfolio, then ask for their opinion. Free advice is just that – FREE! Remember to thank you the agent for their time!
You can avoid sleep wrinkles by sleeping on your back or by sleeping on a satin pillowcase! Night time wrinkles are caused by the friction of rubbing your face, all night long, against your pillow. A satin pillow case will let your face ‘slide’ instead of ‘rubbing’ on the pillow case and your face will definitely look the better for it in the morning. There are also special sleep wrinkle pillows that you can buy that will hold your head in a certain position to alleviate those sleep wrinkles!

Frequently, a new model will pose stiffly and without a lot of creativity. In other words, they know basic poses but haven’t learned how to make them unique unto themselves. As you practice, you will find that posing becomes easier and more natural. It takes a lot of practice and a willingness to experiment with facial expressions, arm, leg, hand placement, etc. You will learn what works and what doesn’t. Ultimately, your confidence will increase and you will have developed a unique set of posing skills.

Treated with care, they enhance your looks and serve you well. Neglected, they not only lose their luster, but they decay. Having that dental check-up once or twice a year is essential. Follow the below tips to insure good dental health:
WATCH WHAT YOU EAT: Sweets are sure to ruin all your teeth. Teeth are defenseless against the lactic acid formed in your mouth when you eat sugary foods. Apples increase your saliva, a natural mouthwash. Raw vegetables contain mineral salt which also cleanses. Brush your teeth after every meal. If you can’t, rinse your mouth with cold water.
PLAQUE: Even if you never touch sugar, your teeth are bound to collect some of that awful whitish yellow stuff, the demon of the dental world-plaque. Plaque is made of food, bacteria and acid which can burn a hole right into your tooth! Plaque takes 12-24 hours to form, so if it’s removed during this time period, not enough of it can collect to do any damage to your teeth or gum tissue. Remember to brush after every meal and use dental floss!
A recent poll of 2,000 American and British women (between the ages of 18 and 60) showed that the typical female will own about 268 pairs of shoes during her adult life.
The poll found that women typically purchase four pairs of shoes each year, spending around $60 per pair. More than one fifth said they are addicted to shoes and purchase a brand new pair at least once a month.

BLEACHING YOUR TEETH: Hydrogen peroxide is used in most teeth whitening products (professional and at home). This can cause changes to tooth enamel, making it weaker and increase sensitivity. While teeth whitening is not permanent, the harmful effect on your teeth will be.
LASH EXTENSIONS: Lash extensions can seem like a miracle product. They visually thicken and lengthen your real lashes. BUT – lashes have to be applied using semi-permanent glue, with touch ups every 3-4 weeks. The bad news is that you can suffer hair loss of your natural eyelashes, develop an irritation or infection due to the glue or bacteria that your extensions can catch.
As with all beauty rituals, carefully consider the benefits versus the consequences! Most likely, the short term benefits won’t justify the long-term damage.
