Yawn Away Wrinkles

Yawning is so contagious…and it can be embarrassing if done at the wrong place or the wrong time. But there's a way you can make it really good for you. Here's how…

Each time you yawn (or every other yawn when you are not surrounded by people), use the opportunity to tone your face and neck muscles. Inhale deeply as you yawn, and open your mouth as wide as it will go. As you exhale, stick out your tongue and roll your eyes upward. If you're alone—or around people with ear buds or who don't mind you making weird noises—make a loud roar like a lion. These are classic yoga moves that have been used for centuries to reduce neck and face wrinkles. They work!

Milk Face Mask: French Secret for Getting Rid of Wrinkles

This is the secret formula for wrinkle-free skin from a French beauty we know. (She never seems to age!) French women are the envy of women worldwide when it comes to beautiful skin!

Combine and bring to a boil one cup of whole milk, two teaspoons of lemon juice and one tablespoon of brandy. Remove from heat. While the mixture is still warm (not hot!), paint it on your face and neck with a pastry brush. (Yes, you will feel like a delectable pastry.) When it is thoroughly dry, wash off the residue with warm water and pat dry with a freshly laundered towel. Do this three times a week for beautiful skin and fewer wrinkles.

Garlic Steam Treatment for Bronchitis

If you have been diagnosed with bronchitis—the kind that lasts a week or two and generally is caused by a viral infection (which may have begun with a cold or sore throat)—consider the following natural, soothing treatment for your inflamed bronchial tubes...

Put one quart of filtered or spring water in a pot, then add three tablespoons of dried oregano and three average-size garlic cloves that have been coarsely chopped with the skins on. Let this mixture boil for 10 minutes, then take the pot off the fire and let it steep for five minutes. Next, put a towel over your head and neck, and bend over the steaming pot. Breathe deeply for five minutes. Caution: Be extremely careful not to get too close to the hot pot—you could get a steam burn.

Reheat the same batch of oregano-garlic water, and repeat the steam treatment every few hours, especially just before bedtime. It should help you sleep through the night. Make a new batch the next day.
