Healthy, glowing skin is usually beauty priority number one for women, so we've rounded up the most surprising bad skin habits you need to kick to the curb.
1. Chlorine Criminal: Your post-pool regime is vital when it comes to your skin. Even after a shower, chlorine can cling to skin reacting with topical medications, cleansers, even lotions. To effectively remove chlorine, always use an extra sudsy soap or body wash after you take a dip.
2.Makeup Mayhem: Falling asleep with your makeup on can lead to bacteria infections, clogged pores which can cause acne (hello, morning pimple!), and residue that can stay on your pillow and cause you to get sick. Keep makeup removing wipes next to your bed so you'll never make this beauty mistake again.
3.Coffee and Your Mug: Caffeine is a major culprit when it comes to dry skin. Avoid the magnification of wrinkles and instead, quench skin by drinking lots of H2O. To make sipping on water more enticing, add fruit slices like orange or lemon to enhance

Victoria Beckham.You already know your high heels are killing you. And you’ve only got yourself to blame. But when it comes to another deadly accessory in your closet—the oversized bag—there’s now an official scapegoat.

“Women may think they are following a catwalk trend but they are storing up trouble,” noted Sammy Margos, a London physiotherapist who has dubbed the problem “Poshitis,” according to the Daily Express. “We have seen a huge increase in shoulder and neck problems and killer heels can add to the pressure on posture.” He adds that he’s seen handbags weighing more than 20 pounds, which can cause “repetitive strain injury and pain in the shoulder and neck.”
Actually, if we’re to believe the myriad studies of dangerous apparel, Victoria Beckham’s bag isn’t the only thing that’s killing her (and us). To wit:

This had become her daily ritual. She’d hurry back home from work only so she’d reach home before him. She’d give instructions to the maid for some household chore to keep her occupied or send her out with a list of things to get for the house. Then she always started with his cupboard. Checking every shelf, every drawer. She’d then move to his study, going through the papers placed at the table. Reading all the post-its stuck on the table and shading the impressions on the notepad to read what had been scribbled on before the page was torn off.

Fergusson had been recording her mother’s recollections of the war for about a decade as research for a historical novel she planned to write, when she finally asked to read the letters her mother had long kept private. “She said they were soppy and might embarrass me, but finally decided I could have them with the promise that I wouldn't read them or publish them until after she was gone," Fergusson told Yahoo! Shine.

Jada Pinkett Smith opened up about this very topic on Thursday when during an interview with HuffPo Live, she addressed longstanding rumors that she and her husband of 15 years Will Smith are allowed to sleep with other people. "I've always told Will, 'You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay," said Pinkett Smith. "Because at the end of the day, Will is his own man. I'm here as his partner, but he is his own man. He has to decide who he wants to be and that's not for me to do for him. Or vice versa."
It's not the first time one half of the power couple as spoken out about their unconventional relationship. In 2008, Will Smith told British magazine Now, "Our perspective is, you don’t avoid what’s natural and you’re going to be attracted to people. If it came down to it, then one would say to the other: 'Look, I need to have sex with somebody. Now I’m not going to

If you want to show off some cool body art over spring break, but you're not willing to have it permanently etched onto your arm, realistic-looking temporary tattoos seem like a healthy compromise. But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Monday warned people to watch out. Apparently, certain temporary tattoos can still cause permanent damage.
"Just because a tattoo is temporary it doesn't mean that it is risk free," Dr. Linda Katz, director of FDA's Office of Cosmetics and Colors, said in a statement.
The FDA's warning has to do with temporary tattoos made with "black henna" ink containing para-phenylenediamine (PPD), a coal-tar product that is approved for use in hair dye but is known to cause skin reactions in some people. Traditional, reddish-brown henna and stick-on temporary tattoos (the ones that look like stickers and are applied with water) are not part of the warning.Read More »from Caution: Black Henna Temporary Tattoos Could Leave Permanent Scars
I’ve tried chocolates, broccoli and various flavours of tea, but nothing helped! Then I felt I must shuffle my living space a bit, jazz it up with vibrant hues, maybe. I went on and spent all my time, money and effort, but in vain.Well, I’m sure I’ve got you wondering what the rant is about. No ailments, no depressions. It’s even worse! The feeling of guilt!
I haven’t committed a murder, but there are zillion things I (more generally, most women) feel guilty about. These pangs make their presence felt at least once a day- ‘The devil’s dosage’-as my husband sarcastically calls it.
