Give me chocolate for Valentine’s Day and I certainly won’t complain (especially if its dark and studded with almonds). But a box of candy isn’t the only way this old-school superfood has the power to make me swoon. By now most of us know that chocolate is “good for you”—packed with antioxidants, minerals and nutrients that boost mood with every blissful bite. But did you know your favorite treat also has prettying powers?

Q: Winter is wreaking havoc on my skin—please help!
Licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy of MyChelle Dermaceuticals responds:
Whether you’re battling freezing temps, harsh winds or worse, winter is cruel to skin. Fluctuations in temperature and humidity outdoors, plus artificial heat filling our indoor spaces, can have drying and dehydrating effects. Pores become clogged with debris and skin can suffer from a buildup of dead cells, leaving it looking dull, tired and run down.
We all want it: healthy, radiant, glowing skin. But as we age, our skin can become dull, weathered and run down. There comes a time where everyone needs a little brightening. Years of sun exposure starts to reveal the detrimental effects of UV stress, which causes damage in multiple layers of the skin and ultimately diminishes our natural glow.
You swear that pimple wasn’t there when you looked in the mirror this morning. But there it is – red, irritated and ready to tag along on your date tonight. Keep it from making an appearance by following these 4 tips to hide blemishes, fast!
Q. I want to look my best for Valentine’s Day date night. What quick skin tips do you recommend?
Dr. Linda Miles D. O. M. responds:
A. Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to show your skin some love. With the right natural products, five to 10 minutes and a little TLC, you can kiss your dull, winter-weathered skin goodbye and get glowing for your special night!
We’ve all been there, scraping the bottom of a jar for that last bit of moisturizer. Making every drop count is important when you’ve spent a small fortune on beauty supplies! Whether its makeup, anti-aging serum or hair spray, you want your stuff to last. While it’s always good to have a stash, knowing how to extend the life of your products will save you a lot of money and time in the long run.
According to Murphy’s Law, “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” Sure, you can gamble against it, but why bother? This old adage inspired me to create a special kit before my sister’s wedding; it was packed with solutions for every possible mishap. Ripped seam? Sewing kit and hem tape. Sudden spill? Stain-removal pen. Spinach in teeth? Toothpicks and floss. Take that, Murphy!
