SELF Magazine Beauty & Health Tips

We all want to look and feel our best, and spring-time is great motivation to start new beauty and health tips to get ready for summertime. With beauty and health trends always changing, sometimes it's hard to keep up with what's new and fresh.

SELF Magazine's beauty director, Elaine D'Farley joined Studio 10 by satellite to offer some tips on feeling beautiful from the inside out. Elaine and her team plow through all the trends, picking out the best to lay out for you each month in SELF Magazine.

It's National Nutrition Month, and Elaine says beauty and health start with breakfast, the most important meal of the day. She suggests a ready-to-eat cereal from Mom Brands called "Spooners." It comes in 5 flavors, and has no artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup. It has a Stamp of Approval from Whole Grains Council, and its 5 grams of fiber will leave you feeling full and satisfied.

Elaine's tips for outward beauty begin with skin care. Skin is the biggest organ. She suggests the skin care line from "Simple". Their facial cleanser goes on light and takes off impurities, leaving skin feeling moisturized and rejuvenated. That's what gives skin a great glow.

There's also a new bronzer from "Physician's Formula" called The Bronze Booster Glow Booting Air Brushing Bronzing Veil. It's enriched with activation technology that activates the glow in your skin. It's only $15.95 at drug-stores.

There's even an app to look more like Gwyneth Paltrow. Download the SELF app from any app store, and wave the phone over a SELF Magazine cover. Videos will pop up with content giving tips on celebrity routines!

You can find Elaine's latest beauty and health tips each month in SELF Magazine.

Women keep secrets for only half an hour!

Women are overcome by the desire to gossip and can typically wait no longer than 32 minutes before spilling the beans, a new study has claimed.

According to the study of 3,000 women by facial skincare brand Simple, one in ten admitted to being unable to keep a secret, no matter how
personal or confidential the news is, whereas 85% said that they relish hearing gossip from others.

Depending on who the gossip is about, a woman’s husband, mother or best friend is most likely to be the initial recipients of the information.

Almost half of the women questioned said that they often felt the need to offload their secrets to someone while a sneaky 13 percent said they intentionally relayed gossip so that it would spread.

“This poll clearly shows that women really struggle to keep secrets,” the Daily Mail quoted a spokesperson for Simple as saying.

“Spilling the beans in just 32 minutes is very fast work, but with modern technology someone’s juicy secret can be spread to huge amount of people all over the world in a very short space of time.

“We are all guilty of sharing people’s secrets but there is a difference between idle chit-chat and sharing someone’s most sacred secret,” the spokesperson added.
