The Lowdown on Lip Balm

Lip balm originated in the hot, dry desert
climate of ancient Egypt. Cleopatra and other royalty applied beeswax to soothe chapped lips.
For best results, dermatologists recommend applying lip balm not just during the day, but also before bedtime for overnight moisturizing.

Happiness Helper: Be Bright

A quick and easy mood booster could be
as close as your closet! Perk up a gray,
winter day by putting on brightly
colored clothing!
Studies show there's a connection
between colors and emotions. Wearing
hues such as yellow, orange, pink, red, etc.
can help produce positive and happy feelings.
