Beauty scam: "Cellulite" is a made-up word created to steal your money

The term “cellulite” is nothing more than a made-up name for an invented condition, created to sell beauty products. It first appeared in print in a 1968 issue of Vogue magazine. Then, in 1973, salon owner Nicole Ronsard published a book titled Cellulite: Those Lumps, Bumps and Bulges You Couldn’t Lose Before.Nearly overnight, millions of American women went from believing their bodies were normal and healthy to “suffering” from an “unsightly” skin condition with a fancy French name.

Love Affair With The S Word

Have you ever fallen head over heels, crazy, madly in love? You know the kind of love I’m talking about--the one that holds you hostage and refuses to release you from its bondage. We’ve all been there at one time or another. You likely understand--all to well--that love can unmercifully hurt and leave us wounded with fear of trying again. But there we go--at it again--refusing to give up on finding that one great, amazing love affair. It makes our hearts beat faster, our knees weak, our senses heightened....more

How to Use Old Coffee Grounds to Exfoliate, Brighten Hair Color and Treat Cellulite

I keep reading that used coffee grounds are good for cellulite –- well, as good as any of the other products out there, which charge scandalously for short-term results you can get with used coffee grinds. But it also seems like it would be a good, cheap and safe for sensitive skin exfoliator, so I did some research and got some surprises. ...more
