Safflower Oil for Dry Skin!
Safflower oil lubricates the skin, creating a barrier that prevents water from leaving your skin. Thus locking in moisture for glowing skin. The oil can soften dry areas, smooth rough patches, and even improve both the texture and tone of your skin.It''s also one of the best (and most inexpensive) sources of linoleic acid, which may be a secret weapon in preventing acne.

Dry Skin Help
Our skin is naturally acidic to protect against bacteria.  Many soaps are alkaline, though, so they strip away protective oils.  To avoid dry, cracked hands, look for a soap that''s pH balanced or one that lists lactic acid or glycolic acid among the first half of its ingredients.

Choosing Coconut Oil
Choosing unrefined, or "virgin" coconut oil will provide the most benefits since processing practices can negate its favorable properties.

Juice Cleanses Not for Healthy Weight Loss
MYTH: Juice Cleanses Help You Eliminate Toxins"People think juice cleanses are a good way to detox the body," says McDaniel. "But I remind my clients that you have a built-in detox organ, the liver, and it''s very good at what it does." It probably won''t harm you if you go on a juice cleanse for a day or so, but as a way to lose weight, it''s not such a good idea since it deprives you of proteins and fats and may lead to muscle loss.

Losing Your Hair?
Hair LossWhen you don''t get the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that your body needs from your diet, it can cause your hair to fall out. For instance, too little protein in your diet can damage healthy hair, and inhibit your body''s ability to build new hair follicles, which can cause noticeable hair loss after about two to three months of a protein-deficient diet. Very strict weight-loss diets can also cause noticeable hair loss, which commonly occurs about three months after losing 15 pounds or more of body weight.
