Perhaps it’s that nagging fear that the best years of our lives may be behind us (they’re not) or the universal fear of our own mortality that motivates us, but there’s no denying that we as a society are feeding an anti aging market that’s currently worth hundreds of billions.

Contributed by Sophia Morris

There’s a growing belief among many of us that technology is destroying the quality of our human interactions. That’s not to ignore the benefits. Technology allows us to stay in touch with old friends and remote family members like never before, and can keep us in touch with loved ones all day. However, there are also some detriments.

3 Tips To Know Before Dyeing Your Hair

A new year is a great time to freshen up or change your look. Maybe you just need a new cut or style, or maybe you could try a new color! Choosing the right color isn’t easy, but using these three tips can ensure you get the perfect look.
