The great thing about uber-short hair is that with the right style, you'll look trendy, sexy and feminine.

Enter your new best friend -- matte finish hair wax. This type of hair wax gets your short locks under control and keeps them that way, all without the stiffness or shininess of a gel or pomade.

Facial creams designed to stimulate collagen production may not be the magic bullet for doing away with wrinkles and other skin damage, but they can be effective moisturizers for keeping your skin tone even and keeping you from aging prematurely. According to a 2008 study performed by researchers at the University of Michigan, estrogen cream, also called estradiol cream, wasn’t very effective for treating skin that was exposed to the sun -- and it can have a bunch of side effects if you’re at risk for cancer. The cream worked better on the subjects’ butts that weren’t continually exposed to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. Less invasive phytoestrogens are safer; some of the better formulas can keep you from aging before your time.]]>

You already know that sunscreen is essential if you want to protect your skin from diseases like skin cancer – not to mention some nasty, painful burns! But knowing which one to buy can be tough. You need UVA and UVB protection, but you also want to avoid paraben preservatives, which are used to stabilize cosmetics and sunscreens; they’ve been linked to potential birth defects and breast cancer according to Barbara Close, author of “Pure Skin: Organic Beauty Basics.” A lot of commercial sunscreens contain parabens, but don’t worry – you can still buy an effective sunscreen without the danger!]]>
