Benefits of Eating Apples - Apple Nutrition

We've all heard the saying "An apple a day will keep the doctor away."   But just why are these delicious treats to helpful for us?

The University of Illinois says that apples are a good source of soluble and insoluble fiber.  Soluble fiber helps prevent cholesterol build-up which can reduce the risk of heart disease.  Insoluble fiber helps food move through our digestive system.   And if you're counting calories, the University indicates that one medium apple (2 1/2 inches) has only 81 calories - and tastes great, I might add.

From fruit cups to baked goods, juices and fresh cuts, apples are a great source for nutrition, treats, and more.  So rather than reaching for that chocolate bar or bag of chips, get creative with a red delicious apple.    Here are some of our..............

Shaving Tips for Men - How to Shave

Billy Lowe tips on how to shave!

I've been shaving since I was 8 years old.  Well, not really.  Dad used to take the blades out of his razors and let me pretend to shave at the bathroom sink.  You can definitely tell what year it was because of the tile, the plastic pink curtains and the fuzzy covers here and there.

I felt really grown up.  While this photo was taken circa 1979, I should have known long ago that I'd fall in love with the world of beauty, and share tips with the world on beauty routines along the way.  The teacher in me never sleeps and I have an obvious passion for the world of beauty tips and how to's.  So men, listen up; this one's for you.

When I shave, I shave 2-3 times.

Hair Salon Treatments - Benefits of Scalp Massage

Hair salons in Beverly Hills offer many additional services to your salon visit.  The benefits of scalp massage go without saying.  Not only does it feel good, but there have been many articles written about the benefits of scalp (and body) massage over time.

Many of my salon clients agree that shampoo time in the salon (second to a perfect blow-out) is probably their favorite item on the menu.  The warm water pouring over one's scalp, various shampoo and conditioning fragrances, perhaps a little incense, and a great, therapeutic shampoo and conditioning treatment just make the whole salon experience extra special.

While it doesn't quite feel the same when you do it yourself, the benefits are still these for scalp massage:
