Giving You the Finger: Japanese Jin Shin Jyutsu Exercises Balance Emotions

Who isn't in need of a quick-fix when feeling out of balance emotionally? The Japanese touch therapy called Jin Shin Jyutsu does just that. According to Jin Shin Jyutsu's premise, each finger corresponds to different organs and their corresponding emotions. All you do is hold the specific finger -- or if you want to harmonize your entire body/emotions, go through each finger -- for three to five minutes while breathing...

PEEL ME! ALBA BOTANICA PORE PURIFYING MINI PEEL

One of my favorite drugstore brands is Alba Botanica, and lucky for me (and you and lab animals), Alba doesn't test on animals and its ingredients are vegetarian. To peel my still-combination skin, I use the Alba Botanica Pore Purifying Mini Peel from their Good & Clean line.
