Hey ladies, looking for a job? The Mexican Pacific state of Guerrero has posted this help wanted ad for a new all-female tourist police force: Wanted: Women ages 18-26, who are at least 5-foot-5 and whose weight is proportional to that height.

Bad Skin Habits

As summer approaches, you may find yourself showing off more skin than usual. Here’s some advice on what bad-skin habits you should try breaking ASAP!

Pick makeup that offers SPF coverage for your face, and use sunscreen on your chest, ears, and hands otherwise – more if you’re doing something that leaves you more exposed, like going to the beach.

Botox injection

We’ve already suspected that when people use Botox or other muscle-relaxing/freezing injectables, we might have a hard time deciphering what they’re feeling. Now, researchers at USC and Duke have compared subjects treated with Botox, Restylane, and a special gel that intensifies muscle signals.  Researchers showed each group pictures of faces and asked them to identify the emotions they saw. People treated with Botox were worse at figuring out peoples’ facial emotions. Why?
