⓺ Combing your hair in the morning seems like a pretty simple task. I mean what harm could come from that? Oh but wait, better hold on to it tightly! Drop your comb while your doing your hair & you will experience disappointment in the near future.



⓻ Tanning… Some believe it’s “a must” in order to look good? Hmmmm, I wonder if your skin agrees?



⓼ Apparently only the strongest & bravest of individuals can handle “the dreaded heat” of a stone massage. Are you strong enough?



⓽ Are you currently experiencing one of those painful little red annoyances known as… PIMPLES? Well they say if you find one on your chin, someone is crushing on you. Hmmm… A Secret Admirer? At least there is one positive to those pesky little bumps! ?
